Nottingham Forest v Newcastle United Betting Preview: Magpies to win at the City Ground

Newcastle United travel to the City Ground to face Nottingham Forest in the Championship on Friday evening, and are big favourites to pick up all three points to extend their lead at the summit. The Magpies have been outstanding on home soil this season and are hoping to capitalise on a Forest outfit who have been inconsistent at home in recent weeks.

Nottingham Forest find themselves languishing in the lower reaches of the Championship table with 22 points from 18 games. The Midlands outfit are 17th in the table and have picked up just one win at home since August. Nottingham Forest haven’t managed a clean sheet at the City Ground in the league this season, and will have the task of containing the most prolific side in the division on Friday evening. Nottingham Forest are 3/1 with Bet365 to win against Newcastle United.

Forest could go level on points with sides in mid-table with a win against the Toon Army, but their poor home form and defensive record might see them susceptible to a United outfit having scored in each of their last eight away games in the Championship. Newcastle are top of the table with 40 points from 18 games this season, coming off the back of eight wins from their last nine games. Rafael Benitez’s side have been travel-happy too, amassing more points on the road than any other side in the league and conceding just three goals from eight away from home.

A win for Newcastle at the City Ground will see them go five points clear at the summit, and Betfair are giving odds of 8/11 for Newcastle to win against Nottingham Forest.

Big Tip
With Nottingham Forest struggling for consistency on home soil ahead of their meeting with a Newcastle side boasting the best away record in the Championship, Friday’s meeting at the City Ground is likely to go the way of the league leaders. Newcastle have been full of goals and should have some joy against a porous Forest defence. As a result, Betfair are giving odds of 8/11 for Newcastle to win against Nottingham Forest.
