Nottingham Forest vs Wolves: Our top betting tips

Nottingham Forest were humiliated in their last game as Blackpool dumped them out of the FA Cup. Will they have a better time in the EFL Cup when they play host to fellow Premier League team Wolves? Find out with our Nottingham Forest vs Wolves match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

It will be a draw at the 90 minute mark

This game is a tough one to call in respect of the match result market and we're backing the action to end level at the 90 minute mark. Nottingham Forest have been in really good form at home of late with six games unbeaten at the City Ground with three draws and three wins. The trouble they face is that they are up against a Wolves side who are pretty good on the road. Wolves are unbeaten away from home in half a dozen matches; they've drawn four and won two of those matches. With that all considered, a draw really isn't the wildest prediction in the world.

Both teams will score

Our next prediction comes from the both teams to score market and we are backing ‘yes'. We've already referenced the fact that both teams are in good form and, as part of that, they've been finding the net with consummate ease as well. Nottingham Forest have scored in each of their last eight home games. Wolves meanwhile have netted in seven away games in a row. At 17/20 (1.85), we think the value on offer is pretty good.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Nottingham Forest odds: 8/5 (2.60) – 39%

Draw odds: 11/5 (3.20) – 31%

Wolves odds: 7/4 (2.75) – 36%

The above odds tell you just how tough this game is to predict. Neither of these sides are perceived to have been pulling up trees in their respective campaigns but one of them will be heading into the very latter stages of a major domestic cup by the end of Wednesday. As for the game, although tight, the bookies narrowly favour Nottingham Forest to come out on top. As for goal scoring, the bookies have things priced up to suggest we'll see a low scoring match with under 2.5 goals odds on.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Nottingham Forest vs Wolves

Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest made a host of changes for their FA Cup tie at the weekend and it backfired spectacularly. It was clear that the cup wasn't their priority for the season with a relegation battle in the Premier League clearly taking focus. With the League Cup so much further advanced than the FA Cup, it will be interesting to see what XI they select. We're expecting a significant shift back towards a strongest XI.

Predicted lineup – Henderson (GK), Lodi, Aurier, McKenna, Boly, Yates, Freuler, O'Brien, Lingard, Johnson, Dennis

Wolves

Wolves had a good result against Liverpool at the weekend drawing 2-2 – and it could have been even better had it not been for a questionable offside decision. That said, one of the key moments in the match was a triple change made by Julen Lopetegui. We're not expecting all three of those players to come in but it wouldn't be a big shock to see at least one come into the XI for this game.

Predicted lineup – Sa (GK), Jonny, Toti, Collins, Lembikisa, Ait Nouri, Hodge, Neves, Semedo, Guedes, Hwang

Player to watch

Jesse Lingard courted quite a bit of attention when he signed for Nottingham Forest in the summer but he is yet to light things up. Well, at least he hasn't in the Premier League. The EFL Cup, however, has been a different story. In two appearances in this competition Lingard has scored and assisted twice. Will he continue that form here?
