Round two of the Championship gets started at Elland Road where two teams expected to be fighting for promotion come the end of the season face-off. Here are our top Leeds v Nottingham Forest betting tips.
A Closer Look
Leeds and Nottingham Forest get a special Saturday of sport started at 12.30pm and this fixture will be shown live on Sky Sports, ensuring a bumper audience. Who will come out on top?
Leeds narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League last season as their bid to return to the top-flight of English football continues. There is a generation of fans who don’t know the joys of watching their team set-up against the likes of Man Utd and Liverpool and, for more experienced followers, the glory days now seem a long time ago.
Want to Make the Climb
Nottingham Forest are another who can look back fondly, but they too must strive to return to the summit of the game in England and to have any chance of doing that they must battle their way through one of the most competitive divisions in the game. Anything less than a play-off finish would be viewed as failure for both of the sides involved here.
The betting has Leeds priced up as favourite with Unibet offering 3/4 at the time of writing. That makes them the most likely winners of the points, according to traders, but it’s a competitive market that should change between now and kick-off. The same firm have the draw at 13/5 and that’s sure to catch the attention of value hunters, especially so early in the season. Fancy an upset? You’ll get a cracking 15/4 with Unibet when taking a chance on the away win. That won’t go unnoticed as The Tricky Trees are more than good enough to come away with all three points.
