This is an interesting EFL Cup tie on Tuesday night as Nottingham Forest look to upset a top-flight opponent.

Forest have lost four of five games played in all competitions this season.

The only win that they have recorded was in the last round of the EFL Cup.

Forest earned a 2-1 success over Bradford in the last round, at home.

A positive for Forest is that they have scored in all but one fixture this season.

The negative is that the results have not been going their way.

In the match outright for football betting, the home win for Forest is at a quote of 14/5* (odds recorded 19:52 GMT on August 22nd 2021).

So they are substantial underdogs in the fixture.

Wolves 2-1 Correct Score

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 19:52 GMT on August 22nd 2021)


This is the first time that Forest have faced Wolves since the 2017/18 Championship season.

The two sides traded away wins that season in the league.

There’s no guarantee that either side are going to be at full strength in this one.

Forest are winless in their last four home matches against Wolves, losing three of those.

A Both Teams To Score option at 19/20 for football betting is the way to go* (odds recorded 19:52 GMT on August 22nd 2021).

Both look as if they have cracks in defence that can be exploited especially if not at full strength.


Wolves Preview – Wolves face some pressure

Although the EFL Cup is not going to be high on the list of priorities for Wolves, they will be under pressure.

That’s because there have been back to back 1-0 losses in the Premier League for them this season.

Overall, extending back to last season, Wolves have lost their last five matches.

With no goals on the board for this campaign, this may be a tricky challenge.

But the level of opposition is obviously not expected to be as strong on Tuesday night as what they have faced this season.

Wolves have met Leicester and Tottenham in the league this season.

In the match outright, the Premier League side are 10/11 for the away win* (odds recorded 19:52 GMT on August 22nd 2021).
