Nottingham Forest v Bristol City - Championship - 19:45

Nottingham Forest to beat Bristol City at 17/14 looks like a pretty good price to me.

Forest have been consistently excellent this season, and have the look of a side whose blend of attack and defence is concocted to the perfect ratio.

‘Consistency’ and ‘Bristol City’ are phrases not often heard in the same sentence, and Lee Johnson has seen his side lose both games since the restart to properly shoot themselves in the foot during this multi-team battle for the play-offs.

Sabri Lamouchi’s men come into this off the back of a good win against Huddersfield, while The Robins were shambolic defensively last time out against Sheffield Wednesday.

Streaky Lee Johnson can always pull a result out of the hat, but in this case, that threat has seen the bookies provide a fairly generous price.

Forest - 1pt @ 21/20

West Ham v Chelsea - Premier League - 20:15

Next up, I’m backing Chelsea to beat West Ham.

Frank Lampard’s side have restarted proceedings really well, and their huge victory over Manchester City will give them bags of confidence ahead of their journey across London.

They are still far from guaranteed Champions League football next season, so they’re unlikely to take their eye off the ball against a struggling Hammers outfit.

It’s fair to say that David Moyes’ men have looked every inch the relegation strugglers they are since football came back—losing 2-0 to Spurs and Wolves—so barring a miracle, which I’m not sure West Ham are capable of, they’re in for another pointless endeavour.

Chelsea - 1pt @ 8/13

Spal v AC Milan - Serie A - 20:45

My final selection is for Milan to beat SPAL on the road.

The visitors have restarted the season like a freight train, hammering Lecce 4-1 before securing a very impressive 2-0 win over Roma last time out.

Struggling SPAL, who are bottom of Serie A, have lost back-to-back games since returning—against Cagliari and Napoli—and unfortunately for them it’s looking like another tough afternoon.
