Nottingham Forest 10/11 to beat Luton Town and over 1/5 goals in Sunday’s Championship matchup

Competition: Championship

Market: Nottingham Forest win and over 1.5 goals

Odds: 10/11 @ Bet 365

Hoping to make it three wins on the bounce at the City Ground, Nottingham Forest will host relegation scrappers Luton on Sunday lunchtime.

Starting with the hosts, while Forest would have been disappointed to have only snatched a point off of a resurging Reading last weekend, the Reds have steadied the ship after a blip last month. Opening the weekend with a two-point buffer from losing their play-off status, Head Coach Sabri Lamouchi has seen his side win three of their last four Championship appearances, including back-to-back victories at the City Ground. Picking up a 3-2 win over Blackburn in their last matchup on home soil, one man to keep an eye out for this weekend will be leading marksman, Lewis Grabban. The former Aston Villa striker has bagged four goals in as many Championship appearances.

As for the visitors, hit with a 2-1 defeat at home against Birmingham last weekend, it has been nothing short of a woeful campaign for Luton. Still sat rock-bottom of the table, the Hatters find themselves in the midst of a three-match losing run and they have also lost six of their last seven second-tier appearances. Without a win to their name since the start of December, there is no doubt that fans around Kenilworth Road will be most concerned by their side’s issues at the back. Including shipping a trio of goals in back-to-back matches on the road, Graeme Jones’ men have conceded a staggering 58 goals so far this season, comfortably the worst defensive tally in the division.
