Free Predictions and Betting Tips for Huddersfield vs Nottingham Forest

Bookmaker Ratings prediction one: Nottingham Forest to lift the trophy – 1.58

Bookmaker Ratings prediction two: Under 2.5 goals – 1.59

Bookmaker Ratings prediction three: Huddersfield 0 goals handicap – 2.48

Nottingham to Lift the Trophy

The bookies are favoring Nottingham to win this match and to get promoted to the Premier League. To justify, Forest lost just one of their last eight games. Moreover, Nottingham won 50% of their matches this season and won two of their three away matches against the top three teams.

Under 2.5 Goals

There is a 65% chance that we will see under 2.5 goals in this match. In addition, 58% of HuHuddersfield’s and 52% of Nottingham’s matches ended in under 2.5 goals. In another interesting stat, seven of the last nine Championship play-off finals produced under 2.5 goals in 90 minutes. 

Huddersfield 0 Goals Handicap

Huddersfield ended the regular season with a seven-match unbeaten run. That run was extended to nine after Huddersfield won and drew their semi-final playoff tie with Luton. As a result, we think the Terriers have a fine chance of covering the 0 goal handicap.

Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Huddersfield vs Nottingham Forest

The 2021/22 EFL season comes to a close at Wembley with the play-off final, an encounter often described as the “richest game in footbal”l. The winners of this contest stand to have their TV revenue boosted by at least a factor of ten, something that Huddersfield Town know all about having won the 2016/17 edition on penalties following a goalless 120 minutes against Reading.

Despite Huddersfield’s relatively recent experience of the play-offs and top-flight football, Carlos Corberán’s ‘Terriers’ enter this as betting outsiders. The prices are something of curiosity though, given that Huddersfield finished above Nottingham Forest in the league after ending the regular season on a seven-game unbeaten run (W6, D1). They’ve proven to be underdogs with a bite this term though, avoiding defeat in 64% of Championship games in which they started as an outsider (W9, D7, L9).

It’s déjà vu for Forest boss Steve Cooper, who may see this game as an opportunity to avenge last year’s 2-0 play-off final defeat when he was in charge of Swansea. Since his arrival here, however, Cooper has transformed Forest from relegation candidates into promotion contenders by posting an impressive 85% unbeaten rate in Championship games since his September appointment (W23, D11, L6).

While some will tell you that the play-offs are a lottery, the recent numbers don’t back up that claim. This is the fifth ‘3rd vs 4th’ final across the last eight years, but discouragingly for Forest, the fourth-placed side was promoted just once (Fulham 2020). However, having already improved upon their last two playoff appearances which ended in semi-final exits, fans of the ‘Tricky Trees’ may believe this is their time to end a wretched 14-season stint in England’s second tier.

Huddersfield vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

We will follow the bookies’ predictions for this one and back Nottingham Forest to gain promotion. Certainly, boss Steve Cooper’s record is behind this prediction and we expect him to succeed in his quest.
