Man City vs Nottingham Forest: Betting Predictions and Picks

If you are not sure what is the best bet for the Man City vs Nottingham Forest, check our betting tips for this match right here:

Over 3.5 Total Goals

While Man City had a pretty expected start with three wins and a draw against Newcastle, Nottingham Forest did well for a team of their status to win four points from the first four rounds.

More importantly, they did pretty well on the defensive end, conceding five goals overall. However, Man City is a different animal and a team that averaged 4.50 goals per game so far in the league. So, we expect to see plenty of goals in this game, at least four is our prediction.

Erling Haaland to Score First

With six goals in the first four games in Premier League, Erling Haaland already proved how valuable of a signing he is going to be for the defending champions.

The Norwegian wunderkind will certainly fight for the title of top goalscorer in his first season with the club and on that note, we don't doubt that he will score against Forest. However, the bookies don't doubt it either and the odds on him scoring at any time are too low, so we suggest betting on Haaland to score first.

Man City vs Nottingham Forest Preview: Potential Lineups, News, and Form

While the guests have little chance of success in this game, everything is possible in this league. So, let's check the teams out in more detail:

Man City

Despite the fact that they won another title last season, Man City seems even stronger this time around after they signed Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. The team managed to win three of their first games at the start of the new season, along with an exciting draw against Newcastle. However, they haven't been as dominant as one would expect, going behind both Newcastle and Crystal Palace.

Man City will again be without Aymeric Laporte, while Luke Mbete-Tabu, Jack Grealish, and Kalvin Phillips remain doubts.

Man City Predicted Lineup:

Ederson – Walker, Ake, Dias, Cancelo – Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne – Foden, Haaland, Mahrez

Nottingham Forest

After they earned promotion to the top flight of English football for the first time since 1999, Nottingham Forest is one of the teams that's supposed to fight for survival this season. Meanwhile, the team started the new season with one win, one draw, and two losses, which is not that bad for them.

Meanwhile, Moussa Niakhate and Omar Richards remain unavailable with injuries, while Orel Mangala is doubtful.

Nottingham Forest Predicted Lineup:

Henderson – Worrall, Cook, McKenna – Williams, Yates, Freuler, Toffolo – Johnson, Awoniyi, Gibbs-White
