Chris Hughton’s Nottingham Forest and Scott Parker’s Bournemouth do battle at the City Ground in EFL Championship action this Saturday.

Forest may be on home soil in front of their own fans, but the Cherries head to the Midlands as the favourites to get the win. Check out the latest betting odds and predictions.

Nottingham Forest Preview – Can the Reds make home advantage count?

Nottingham Forest kicked off their league campaign with a narrow loss at the Coventry Building Society Arena last weekend. Lyle Taylor gave the Reds a first-half lead, but two goals in the last nine minutes swung the game in Coventry City’s favour.

Nottingham Forest did pick up a win in the EFL Cup in midweek, though. Joao Carvalho was the hero at the City Ground, scoring a brace to help his side to a 2-1 win over EFL League Two outfit Bradford City. Forest will now play Premier League Wolverhampton Wanderers in round two.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1225 GMT, Friday 13 August)

After letting a lead slip to lose 2-1 at Coventry last weekend, Chris Hughton’s boys would love to bounce back with three points on Saturday. However, Bournemouth will be formidable opponents at the City Ground.

Bournemouth Preview – Cherries to stretch unbeaten run?

Scott Parker started life at Bournemouth with a convincing cup win. In the first round of the EFL Cup, the Cherries thumped MK Dons 5-0 at the Vitality Stadium, with David Brooks (2), Dominic Solanke, Philip Billing and Christian Saydee getting the goals.

Bournemouth’s Championship campaign got underway with a thrilling 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion at the Vitality last weekend. Parker’s men led and were pegged back twice, with a share of the spoils just about being the right result. Bournemouth and West Brom will no doubt be there or thereabouts in the race for promotion this term.

Nottingham Forest vs Bournemouth Betting Advice

This fixture has been pretty even in recent times in terms of wins, and the last match ended in a 0-0 draw at the City Ground. In the reverse affair at the Vitality back in November 2020, Junio Stanislas bagged a brace to give Bournemouth a 2-0 victory. Forest’s last win was a 2-1 home success back in February 2015.


Key Facts – Nottingham Forest vs Bournemouth Betting Tip

  • Bournemouth picked up four points from the two meetings last season
  • Parker has won one and drawn one of two league and cup games so far
  • Forest conceded two late goals to lose 2-1 at Coventry on the opening weekend


Forest bounced back with a win in the cup in midweek, but the league is their main priority. After last week, the Reds will be looking for at least a point from this one. However, Bournemouth are a tough nut to crack, and we fancy Parker’s troops to leave with a victory.

This could be close on the scoreline, though, so take a punt on the away team to win by one goal at 3/1. Backing the Bournemouth victory and both teams to score at 15/4 could also be a wise choice of bet.
