Nottingham Forest will be looking for a boost as they go back into action on home turf. This is going to be a game of high pressure now.

Forest are just above the drop zone on goal different and they host bottom side Sheffield Wednesday.

A win for the Owls could lift them out of that bottom spot and pull themselves to within one point of Forest.

There are a massive three points on offer.

Nottingham Forest Preview – Can Forest snap their losing streak?

It has been a three-match losing streak by Forest in the Championship. On the weekend they lost at home against Brentford.

After the weekend’s action goal difference is all that is keeping Forest out of the drop zone.

It has been an overall W3 D4 L11 record for Forest in the Championship this season.

Two of those wins have been on home turf (W3 L4).

But for football betting we have to look at the overall form though of Forest.

They have taken just one point in their last seven league games (home and away).

In that sequence of seven games, they have only hit the back of the net twice as well.

But despite all of theat Nottingham Forest are the 6/5 favourites to pick up the win on Tuesday night* (odds taken 20:47 GMT Monday, 14th December).

The lack of scoring threat that Forest have posed this season could be significant.

They have averaged 0.89 goals per home game, and if you combine their output home and away it has been an average of 0.6 per fixture.

Our betting prediction:

Bet at William Hill

(odds taken 20:47 GMT Monday, 14th December)


In their last three home games Nottingham Forest have collected only one point from their last three, scoring one goal in that sequence.

Given the huge pressure that is riding on this fixture, under 2.5 goals is an option at 8/15 to consider* (odds taken 20:47 GMT Monday, 14th December).

One more thing to add on here is that Forest have lost three of their last four home games against Sheffield Wednesday.

It was a 4-0 hammering that they took in last season’s corresponding fixture.


Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Can the Owls grab their chance?

There has been little form from Sheffield Wednesday recently and they remain rotted to the foot of the table.

The Owls have lost their last three league games on the spin and are winless in eight now (D4 D4).

Sheffield Wednesday started the season with a 6-point deduction.

But being able to collect three points here and move to within a point of Forest would be huge.

The Owls have taken a W2 D1 L6 record out on their league travels thisse ason.

Both of those wins were with clean sheets but both were inside their first three road fixtures of the campaign.

That leaves them having earned one point from their last six road games in the Championship.

Sheffield Wednesday are a current underdog quote of 13/5 in the outright winner market* (odds taken 20:47 GMT Monday, 14th December).

Throughout their struggles, Sheffield Wednesday have also been struggling to put the ball in the back of the net.

They have scored only five goals in their nine road games and it has been an average of 0.56 goals per game overall from them in this campaign.

To their credit they have not been terrible in defence, boasting the best defensive record of the current bottom seven.

Sheffield Wednesday therefore, should have a decent chance of keeping Nottingham Forest at arm’s length we feel.

The half time draw is also worth a look as well because that’s the position the Owls have been in six of their last eight league games home and away.

A 0-0 half time correct score option is at 11/8* (odds taken 20:47 GMT Monday, 14th December).

The straight half time draw is coming in at a 20/21 quote for football betting* (odds taken 20:47 GMT Monday, 14th December).


Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Advice

This is a tough game to call with both teams well out of form at the moment. Both are struggling for goals as well.

The best option we feel therefore it just to stick with the draw in the match outright here for a quote of 21/20* (odds taken 20:47 GMT Monday, 14th December).

This is such a huge game and neither are going to want to lose this one.


Key Facts – Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Tip

  • Nottingham Forest have lost six of their last seven games
  • Nottingham Forest have scored two goals in total across their last seven fixtures
  • Sheffield Wednesday are winless in eight league games


The Owls do have a pretty good recent record at NottinghaM Forest which is another thing to consider as well.

We think that they are strong enough in defence, better than Forest in that regard, to go and get a point that they would be happy with.

Forest may lack the scoring output to get those pressure-relieving three points.
