Nottingham Forest v Leeds United Betting Tips
Just four points separate Leeds United and host Nottingham Forest as the pair go head-to-head in the evening kick-off on Saturday.
The Yorkshire side is in a bad run of form and could fall further away from the top if they don’t overcome Forest, who go into this one as underdogs at 27/10 with Coral.
Leeds are priced at 21/20, with the draw at 23/10.

Key Battle: Pablo Hernandez v Tiago Silva
We expect a big battle in the midfield with the winners likely to come from those allowed to be more creative in the midfield.
Pablo Hernandez will be instrumental in any success Leeds have, setting up the likes of Patrick Bamford (5/4 anytime scorer with William Hill) and Jean Kevin Augustin (15/8).
For Forest, Tiago Silva will be in that advanced midfield role with the Leeds defense needing to shut down any play through to Lewis Grabban, who certainly knows where the goal is. He’s priced at 7/5 anytime scorer.
Our Tip: Forest to benefit from home advantage
It’s typical of Leeds to begin to fade at the final hurdle and recent form shows signs of it again. Forest will provide tough opposition and 27/10 looks great value for the home side.
A home win and BTTS looks even better with William Hill at 6/1.
