Leicester City v Nottingham Forest Premier League Betting Tips 03/10/2022

Leicester City v Nottingham Forest

Leicester City and Nottingham Forest meet in this East Midlands derby on Monday, so enjoy our free Leicester City v Nottingham Forest Premier League Betting Tips 03/10/2022. Both sides have made unconvincing starts to the new season and occupy the bottom two places in the Premier League. The Foxes sit bottom with just one point on the board so far, while Forest are just three points ahead of their rivals in 19th place. However, after the international break, both sides will come back refreshed and likely to produce a fierce rivalry clash on Monday. The match kicks off at 8 p.m. at the King Power Stadium, and it will be shown live on Sky Sports. 

Form and Team News 

Leicester’s winless run to start the 2022/23 season extended to eight matches following a 6-2 loss at Tottenham. The Foxes have just one point in the league this season – an opening day 2-2 draw with Brentford – and have lost their following six matches. Forest fell to a fourth straight Premier League loss before the international break, losing 3-2 at home against Fulham. The Reds are also winless in their last five, taking just one point in this run after a 1-1 draw at Everton. 

Regarding the team news, Leicester duo Paston Daka and Wilfred Ndidi should be available after their recent injuries. Ryan Bertrand and Ricardo Pereira are out. Forest’s Emmanuel Dennis, Scott McKenna and Morgan Gibbs-White are doubtful. Omar Richards, Orel Mangala and Moussa Niakhate are unavailable due to injury. 

Match Winner Betting Tips

With Leicester and Nottingham Forest badly out of form, a tight contest could take place at the King Power. Leicester are considered the favourites due to their home advantage. But an eight-match winless run gives little confidence that Brendan Rodgers’ side will come away with a victory. Therefore, at 4/5 odds, offered by SpreadEx, there is little value on backing a Leicester home win. Similarly, Forest is without a win in five and their only away win in six away matches was a 3-0 victory over league Two side Grimsby. As a result, a Forest win has low odds of 7/2, provided by BetVictor. With the two sides lacking form and confidence, we are tipping a draw in the East Midlands derby. Two of the last three matches between the sides at Leicester have ended in a draw. As a result, the best value comes from SpreadEx’s odds of 16/5 for a stalemate. 

BTTS Bet – Yes

As Leicester and Nottingham Forest have the two worst defensive records in the Premier League this season, goals are likely to flow. Firstly, Leicester has seen BTTS in their last two matches and conceded 11 goals in this run. Forest have also seen BTTS in their last two matches and conceded 18 in their last three Premier League games. With both sides unable to keep a clean sheet, there is decent value in backing SBK’s odds of 9/13 for BTTS yes on Monday. 

Anytime Goal Scorer Betting

Despite goals coming at both ends for Leicester and Forest recently, there are few clear goalscorers in either side. However, Forest starlet Brennan Johnson has shown his threat this season, striking twice in his last five matches. Johnson also scored the Reds’ last away goal in a 1-1 draw with Everton. Therefore, at 7/2, there is good value on a potential Johnson strike at the King Power. But the clear anytime scorer pick in the East Midlands derby is Leicester’s, James Maddison. The England midfielder has scored seven goals in his last 10 Premier League matches, and he struck in the 6-2 defeat to Spurs last time out. With Maddison in consistent scoring form, we are backing him to strike again. Bet365 will provide the best value for a Maddison anytime goal at 12/5. 

Leicester and Nottingham Forest are desperate for points. The Midlands rivals will target this match as a must-win to get their seasons back on track. But, with neither side in strong form, a tense encounter could unfold at the King Power on Monday.
