Cardiff City travel to Nottingham Forest on Sunday hoping for a third straight victory to cement their place in the Championship’s top two.
They face a Forest side that have promotion ambitions themselves though, and have won each of their last four home encounters to put themselves within reach of the top six.
However, we’re tipping the 8/5 (2.60) on a win for the Bluebirds, who have won eight of their last 10 meetings with the East Midlanders.
Neil Warnock’s side average 41% possession when they win and 45% when they fail to do so, which suggests that they will relish facing an expansive Forest side that plays on the front foot.
Winger Callum Paterson is 25/1 (26.0) to score first in a Cardiff win, as he did in the 1-0 triumph at Barnsley on Tuesday; while midfielder Craig Bryson – a familiar foe for Forest – can be found at 7/1 (8.0) to bag anytime.
If the hosts do score, inverted wide man Barrie McKay is a tempting bet at 13/5 (3.6) having netted in two of his last three at the City Ground, while second top scorer Kieran Dowell can be found at the same price.
Our best bet though is a Cardiff victory and under 2.5 goals at 9/2 (5.5), which would have landed in their last two outings.
