Leeds 5/6 to beat Nottingham Forest and over 1.5 goals 5/6 for Saturday’s Championship contest
Market: Leeds win and over 1.5 goals
Odds: 5/6 @ Bet 365
Starting the new Championship campaign in impressive fashion, Leeds United will host Nottingham Forest on Saturday lunchtime.
Starting with the hosts, while Leeds may have missed out on an automatic route back to the Premier League last season, the Whites started the new Championship campaign with a 3-1 win away at Bristol City. Also losing just one of their five pre-season appearances, Leeds are also enjoying a three-match winning run across all competitions and are tipped as one of the leading contenders for promotion this season. Despite now scoring two or more goals in four of their last six contests, it is worth noting that they have recorded just one clean sheet in those six contests.
As for the visitors, missing out on the play-offs last season and having to settle for a spot in the bottom half of the Championship standings, Nottingham Forest also suffered a 2-1 loss against West Brom in their opening contest last weekend. Also now winning just one of their last four contests across all competitions, the Reds have also conceded two or more goals in three of their last four. Even more worrying for Saturday’s guests, Forest have managed to win just one of their last 14 away matchups against Championship opposition.
