Tottenham Hotspur vs Nottingham Forest

, KO: 18:00 Apr 7, 2024, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Nottingham Forest

NOTTINGHAM FOREST gave their Premier League survival hopes a massive boost in midweek but now face a tough task following it up with a victory away to a Tottenham Hotspur side chasing a Champions League place.

Having gone six games without a win in all competitions and slumped into the drop zone after a Premier League points deduction, Forest desperately needed to stop the slide when Fulham came calling in midweek.

Our man Mark went for over 2.5 goals and that bet came up inside the first half as Nuno Espirito Santo's side romped into a 3-0 lead to lift the roof off the City Ground.

Fulham fought back after the break but Nottingham Forest held firm to claim a 3-1 win and will fancy their chances of staying up with games against drop rivals Everton, Sheffield United and Burnley still to come.

All those games are on the road though and Santo's men have a daunting road trip to Tottenham up first, with Ange Postecoglou's side having lost just one of their last five matches.

Tottenham Hotspur's top-four hopes suffered a blow in midweek as they could only draw 1-1 away to West Ham, with our man Slips Tips going for a double based on Tomas Soucek getting stuck in.

But they are still firmly in the hunt for Champions League football next season and will be looking to make it three home wins in a row when Nottingham Forest come calling.

How the bookies view it

Tottenham Hotspur are heavy favourites at a best 2/5 with Bet365 while Nottingham Forest are as big as 7/1 with Unibet. The draw pays a best 9/2 at William Hill.

Recent head to head

Nottingham Forest don't have a great record in this fixture of late, winning just one of the last nine meetings. That victory came in the League Cup last season and Spurs have won the last five league clashes, including a 2-0 triumph at the City Ground earlier in this campaign.

Players to watch

Timo Werner has been a decent signing for Tottenham Hotspur and the German set up their midweek goal. He has also chipped in with two goals since his January arrival from RB Leipzig and is 5/4 with Bet365 for anytime scorer.

Morgan Gibbs-White was superb for Nottingham Forest in that vital midweek victory, chipping in with a goal and an assist. He's 23/5 with Unibet for another strike here while the same firm price him at a tempting 10/11 just to have a shot on target.

Anything else catch the eye?

Tottenham are always great value for goals with Postecoglou's adventurous approach and BTTS has landed in seven of their last nine games. So it's no surprise to see that bet at odds-on here, with the best price just 4/6 at 888Sport. Over 2.5 goals has also come up in eight of those nine matches and combining that with BTTS boosts the odds to 10/11 at Coral. To get to odds-against, try over 3.5 match goals at 6/5 with Paddy Power.

Spurs always leave space in behind their defence and the pace of Nottingham Forest could hurt them down the flanks. Callum Hudson-Odoi scored for Santo's side in midweek and Unibet price him at 27/20 just to have a shot on target here.

Yves Bissouma is back in the engine room for Spurs and the former Brighton star has picked up seven yellows and two reds this season. He's a tempting 17/5 with Unibet for another card against Forest.
