Iron No Match For Forest

Promotion chasing Nottingham Forest are 13/10 (Ladbrokes) to get a much needed away win at struggling Scunthorpe United.

Scunthorpe, 5/2 at Betdaq, have the largest quote for any home side in the Championship this weekend and it’s not hard to see why; 5 straight home losses (and none in eight) has seen them work their way steadily down the table.

Forest don’t exactly boast a stellar away record but a win at Cardiff and a closely fought loss at Leicester gives them the necessary belief to win this one. The 13/10 at Ladbrokes about them is a great place to start and really needs no modification. Danger-man Lewis McGugan could chip in with a goal at some point, 13/8 with Coral.

The early evening TV game pits a slowly rejuvenating Crystal Palace against Hull, the home side 13/8 at Boylesports to carry on the winning habit. However, Hull (21/10, bet365) have learnt to be stubborn of late and whilst not exactly racking up the wins on the road, no losses in 5 is proof of their new will to win. A stalemate at 12/5 (Skybet) would really stand out as the sensible bet and a 1-1 scoreline a 6/1 shot (888sport).

Bottom of the table PNE host nearly-as-desparate Ipswich and whilst Roy Keane’s men have lost 5 of the last 6 on the road, you wouldn’t back Preston at 7/5 (Sportingbet) to beat someone from the league below, nevermind Ipswich. The away side, 15/8 at Stan James, can be followed at evens (Blue Square) to win on the draw no bet market while over 2.5 goals is 5/6 at Skybet.

Coventry are creeping up the table without any fanfare and Reading should beware as The Royals host them this weekend. The home side are 5/6 (Paddy Power) and a fairly robust home recorde may convince you but the odds are too short. While coventy have lost 7 games (2nd highest in the top half), they don’t ‘do’ draws – their odds of 7/2 at Totesport are massive. Leeds, Norwich and Cardiff have all left the Madejski with something to show recently and so will Coventry – The Blues are are rather good 10/11 at bet365 to draw or win.

Flying Cardiff shouldn’t be discounted just because of a loss at QPR and should be backed at 11/8 (888sport) to cause further problems for Middlesbrough and there could be a good collection of goals at Turf Moor where Burnley and Leeds, two of the league’s free-scorers, are 11/5 to knock in 4 or more between them (Sportingbet).

Recommended Bets:
Nottm Forest to beat Scunthorpe – 13/10 (Ladbrokes)
Crystal Palace and Hull to draw – 12/5 (Skybet)
Burnley v Leeds over 3.5 goals – 11/5 (Sportingbet)
