Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport
Looking to move one step closer to a Premier League return, Bournemouth will host a high-flying Nottingham Forest at the Vitality on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Bournemouth might have endured a minor struggle over the past month, Scott Parker’s side certainly laid down a real marker a few days ago. Storming their way to a thumping 3-0 win away at Blackburn, the Cherries know that victory here would see them take a giant stride towards securing a Premier League return. Opening Tuesday’s showdown at the Vitality holding a three-point buffer in that lucrative second-place spot, the former Fulham boss has also seen his side enjoy a recent boost in the final third. Despite having to settle for an action-packed 3-3 draw against Swansea on April 26th, Parker’s men have bagged themselves a trio of strikes in three of their last four Championship outings. Likewise, it should also be noted, Bournemouth have seen seven of their previous eight home fixtures finish with over 1.5 goals.
As for the visitors, already securing a play-off spot with time to spare, there is no doubt that Nottingham Forest are in the midst of a stunning purple patch. Enjoying a remarkable rise under Steve Cooper, the mood around the City Ground appears to be at the highest it has been in recent memory. Last seen over the weekend putting in another stunning display as they breezed their way to a 5-1 romp against Swansea on home soil, the one-time European champions have their sights set on securing a Premier League return. Winning each of their last four Championship contests on the spin, including a 4-0 victory against West Brom on April 18th, Cooper’s men could be smelling the chance to lay down their own marker here. In a contest that could prove to be another lively affair, we’re backing over 1.5 goals on Tuesday night.
