Manchester City vs Nottingham Forest Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips (31/08/2022)

Manchester City will face Nottingham in an interesting match from the Premier League on Wednesday.

Manchester City vs Nottingham Forest: Top Free Betting Tips

Manchester City have obviously been incredible overall but we see some serious issues in defense and maybe Nottingham have a chance. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals – Over 3.5

When it comes to Manchester City at home, there is nothing else to expect than a lot of goals and the over 2.5 lines are pointless. At the same time, Man City easily cover 3+ goals alone against most opponents. The team had three games out of four with over 3.5 goals this season already – 4:2 vs Crystal Palace, 3:3 vs Newcastle and 4:0 against Bournemouth. Nottingham have not had a single match with over 2.5 since the start but they have not faced a team like City on the road either.

Total Cards – Over 2.5

It is strange to see how low the odds and overall market for cards is for this game. We have the best team in the league against one of the struggling newcomers and we have three cards as the main line here. Nottingham have had over 2.5 cards in all four of their games to date and they even had three cards individually in three of those four games. Against Manchester City's attack, we have no doubts that there will be cards for the defenders or midfielders.

Alternative Corners – Under 12

The corner lines for this game are extreme because everyone expects Manchester City to dominate this game. Their stats, however, have been quite different since the start of the season and the team has taken just 5.5 corners per game on average. Nottingham Forest take 2.2 corners per game – the tied lowest in the entire league, so we do not see how there will be 12 at full time here unless Manchester City have serious troubles scoring goals.

Manchester City Preview

Shockingly, Manchester City have positive income after this transfer window even after their incredible purchases. The team sold Raheem Sterling to Chelsea for 56 million and Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko to Arsenal for a combined 87 million. The team acquired Erling Haaland and Kalvin Phillips, which are unbelievably successful transfers already and the team remains the main contender for the Premier League title once again.

Nottingham Forest Preview

Nottingham Forest have made a complete rebuild at the start of their first Premier League campaign in over 20 years. It remains to be seen whether the team will actually improve as it should or whether their struggles will continue. To date, the team has spent nearly 160 million euros and acquired a total of 18 new signings in the transfer window. Some of these signings were impressive such as Taiwo Awoniyi for 20 million, Morgan Gibbs-White for 30 million, and Neco Williams from Liverpool for 20 million. But the results are yet to come.
