Sheffield Wednesday vs Nottingham Forest (By: Saconex)
Sheffield Wednesday (12) vs Nottingham Forest (9)
Sheffield Wednesday are placed 6 points behind Bristol City (6) and the last promotion playoff spot. They simply have to go for 3 points tonight, and I think their chances are pretty good. Losing 1-3 at home vs Aston Villa (5) last time out stopped their run of 11 matches without losing (5-6-0).
Nottingham are placed 1 point above tonights opponent and will need to go for it as well. They are coming from a very disappointing performance away vs Rotherham (22), ended up by losing 2-1. In fact, they havent won away from home since November 2018, and that is way to weak if they have ambitions for a playoff spot. Expect the guests to go for it tonight.
* The reverse fixture ended up with a 2-1 Nottingham Forest win back in September
* Last 6 meetings ended with over 2.5 goals total
I think this can be exciting to follow and I think chances are good for this to end with goals both ways. Both teams needs the victory and will probably go for it. And although I consider the hosts as favourites, I am much more confident in backing this one to go over 3 goals total. The guests should for sure be capable of finding the net if Sheffield are taking the risks they will need to do at some point. So overall, I disagree with the bookies and think the value here is very nice.
