Nottingham Forest vs Huddersfield Betting Tips
- Our Tip – Draw and BTTS @ 15/4 on 888Sport
This year’s Championship play-off final has all the makings of an absolute classic, with the semi-final stages already giving us drama in abundance.
Huddersfield notched in a late winner courtesy of Jordan Rhodes to squeeze their way past a stubborn Luton side, while Forest prevailed in a dramatic penalty shootout to move one step closer to top flight football for the first time since 1999.
Both of these sides possess bundles of attacking threat – Forest finished with the third best record in the division, and have scored in 14 of their last 17 games, while Huddersfield have scored in nine consecutive fixtures.
We are predicting both sides to get on the scoreboard as a result, but the match to go to extra time in tense 90 minutes.
Play-Off Final Predictions
- Our Prediction – 1-1 Draw @ 11/2 on 888Sport
Our prediction for this one is a 1-1 draw in normal time.
The Terries did indeed finish higher than Forest in the final standings, but there really is very little to separate these two sides.
Nottingham will be feeling the pressure of their first ever play-off final, but Steve Cooper’s guidance this season has allowed them to become one of the most exciting teams in the Championship.
Despite their respective league form, a packed out Wembley Stadium presents an entirely different prospect and we think this will result in a cagey draw, sending it to extra time and maybe even penalties.
