Burton v Nottingham Forest Odds
Burton have reached the fourth round of this competition for the first time in their history, beating Shrewsbury away, as well as Aston Villa and Burnley at the Pirelli Stadium already this season, and they are decent value to progress again.
Nigel Clough’s men are 12/5 for the win this week, while Betfred go 11/8 about a Burton win with ‘draw no bet’.
They may be languishing in 16th place in League One currently but they have won six of eleven home matches in all competitions and they tend to raise their game for the big fixtures, beating Villa, Burnley and Sunderland on home soil.
Liam Boyce, who has scored in his last two EFL Cup appearances, will be the main threat for the hosts as he has scored seven goals this season. Boyce has actually scored six in nine home games and he is 11/2 to be first goalscorer or a best-price 39/19 to score at anytime (Unibet).
There is the promise of goals on Tuesday as Forest’s three EFL Cup games have produced 11 goals in total, with Aitor Karanka’s men defeating Bury, Newcastle and Stoke – all at home.
Both teams have scored in 13 of Forest’s 18 outings in all competitions this season and both teams to score is one for odds-on backers – 4/5 with Betfred.
The focus for Forest is promotion from the Championship and they are seventh in the table following a slow start, which ensures this cup trip to Burton doesn’t come at an ideal time. They have only won two away games so far this season and they are winless in their two visits to the Pirelli Stadium – drawing 0-0 two seasons’ ago and losing 1-0 last term.
