Leicester City vs Nottingham Forest Tips

Betting Tip: Leicester City win & BTTS

The international break served as a well needed period of respite for the Foxes. They’re currently the only winless team in the division and sit rock bottom. They have lost their last two home matches but one positive is that they have managed to get on the scoresheet in all but one of their seven Premier League games so far.

It’s evident their problems lie in the defensive department and if they can be a little bit more organised, there is no reason why they can’t put a good run of form together and climb out of the relegation zone. 

These are the kinds of games they need to be winning and I think the attack will find some joy against Nottingham Forest. The visitors look like a side still trying to gel, which is no surprise given there were no fewer than 21 arrivals in the summer.

Steve Cooper’s side are conceding an average of 2.4 goals per game this season and whilst I see them getting through the Leicester backline, I don't think they leave with any points.

Leicester have already played Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United which is a tough set of matches. But this should be a little bit easier and I like the odds on Brendan Rodger’s men claiming victory with both teams scoring.

Leicester win and BTTS - 1pt @ 12/5

Betting Tip: Nottingham Forest most cards

Prior to this weekend's fixtures, Nottingham Forest had received the third-highest number of cards and I think they’re likely to have more players go into referee Robert Jones’ book than Leicester.

The hosts have not received the most cards in any of their three home matches, with their opponents across those games being shown six cards cumulatively. 

The Foxes will see this as an ideal opportunity to claim their first win of the campaign and i think we’ll see large portions of this match played in the visitors half. Steve Cooper’s side are being awarded an average of two cards per away game and even that could be enough to win the count.

Nottingham Forest feature in the top eight for fouls committed per match, meanwhile, Leicester City are second-bottom in that same category. I can only see the visitors making crucial, and potentially mis-timed, challenges and I'll have 1.5 points on them seeing more cards than Leicester City.

8/11 is the lowest price I would take for this particular selection.
