Crystal Palace vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tips
Odds provided by bet365 are current as of publication but are subject to change.
Both teams scoring and Crystal Palace winning are both odds of 11/5 at bet365.
At 8/5, Bet365 offers over 3.5 goals.
With bet365, Eberechi Eze to score anytime is 2/1.
Palace to finish on a high
Given the Tricky Trees’ injury woes, Nottingham Forest’s achievement of remaining in the division is not to be taken lightly.
However, they have the worst away record in the Premier League, having won just one of their 18 away games and collecting seven of a potential 54 points while playing away from the City Ground.
In contrast, Crystal Palace has performed well at Selhurst Park since Hodgson was reappointed, winning three of their last four games.
In this matchup, both teams should be able to score, but in five of Nottingham Forest’s last six away Premier League games, both teams have scored.
Steve Cooper’s team has lost four of those six meetings, therefore it could be wise to support Crystal Palace to earn a victory at home in a game in which Nottingham Forest should at the very least be able to score.
Nottingham Forest vs. Crystal Palace Bet 1 with bet365: Crystal Palace to win and both teams to score at 11/5
Under Roy Hodgson, Crystal Palace have found their scoring touch again, scored at least twice in six of their previous nine games, making an end-of-season rout inevitable.
That increased offensive production has benefited the Eagles, who may have a field day against a Forest defense that has allowed 67 goals in 37 games this year.
In fact, four of Nottingham Forest’s previous six Premier League contests featured four or more goals, and the same is expected here in what may turn into a season-ending rout.
At 8/5, wager on over 3.5 goals in this matchup.

Eze to rejoice over call-up
This season, Eberechi Eze has undoubtedly been Crystal Palace’s greatest player, and as a result, he has been called up to the England team for their forthcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers.
The Eagles midfielder has scored three goals in his last four games and has 10 goals overall this season, making him the only Palace player to reach that mark.
Take the 24-year-old to score at 2/1 to mark his Three Lions call-up in impressive fashion.
