Reason For Hull vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tips

  • Hull are aiming to leapfrog Forest with three points here.
  • Forest are winless in their last five matches.
  • The visitors have conceded 9 goals in their last 4 games.
  • Hull have scored twice or more in 5 of their last 6 home games.

Hull Looking up

Boxing Day takes Nottingham Forest to Hull in a fixture which the away side have done well in over the years. However, Forest head into this clash having lost at home to Hull earlier this season, while the visitors are on a terrible run of results which has threatened their ambitions of making the playoffs this season.

While Forest come into this one seeking a turnaround, Hull are hitting their stride, especially at home. They are looking to wrap up a double over Forest, while the Tigers also have the chance to leapfrog them in the table, boosting their own hopes of making the top six this season in the process.

Tough Times for Forest

It’s been a few tough years at this level for Forest, but recent months have restored hope at the City Ground. However, their problems are now starting to pile up, as Forest are winless in five Championship matches (D2 L3), since a 4-0 win away at QPR in November. Their poor form has included a 4-0 thumping at home to Sheffield Wednesday, while things are unlikely to get better this Boxing Day.

Nottingham Forest are winless in their last 11 away league games played on Boxing Day (D4 L7) since a 2-1 win over Spurs in 1991. They head into this clash with concerns around their next Boxing Day outing, as consecutive defeats have knocked Forest down the table and left them a little shaken. Heading to a Hull side who have won three straight home games – scoring nine times in the process – is hardly a boost.

Tigers Have Bite up Front

Hull do have an advantage given that they have one of the division’s most potent forwards. Since the start of the 2017-18 season, Hull’s Jarrod Bowen has been directly involved in 61 league goals (51 goals, 10 assists), more than any other Championship player. The forward scored the winner when these two sides met in October, while he continues to play a key role in their strong attacking form.

He has helped them to score twice in five of their last six home games, while they have scored twice or more in eight of their home matches this term. That form should help them here, especially with Forest shipping nine goals in their last four league games. The visitors are in bad form and they are too open at the back, so we think that over 1.5 Hull goals is the value here as the Tigers chase another positive result.

Forest have managed to score in 83% of their away trips this term, so we expect goals when these two clash at the KCOM. With 67% of their away games seeing both teams scoring, we’re backing a 2-1 Hull victory here. The visitors should grab a goal, but Forest’s problems are likely to condemn them to another defeat.
