West Ham v Nottingham Forest latest odds, news and free bets

These two teams were among the favourites to be promoted from the Championship this season, although it has been a nightmare for Nottingham Forest ever since they drew their opening game at home to Barnsley

Two weeks later and West Ham made short work of the Tricky Trees at the City Ground, winning 4-1 and sending Steve McClaren closer to the exit door, with the former England manager unable to get his team performing on any sort of level.

Something of a miracle is needed to get anything out of Saturday’s game at Upton Park, although you can get 5/1 (Bet Victor £75 free bets) if you think that the visitors can pull off a surprise victory against a team in the box seat for promotion.

West Ham have not really made their home patch a fortress this term although Sam Allardyce’s team are grinding their way out of the division and look a great bet at 8/13 (William Hill free bet) to claim victory in this match.

Forest were drubbed 4-0 at Leicester during the week and another 4-0 reverse is on offer at odds of 25/1 (Coral bookmaker) which could be worth a punt considering that West Ham put four past the same opponents in the reverse fixture.

Coral also offer 6/4 that the home side lead at half-time and full-time, although the Hammers have not been full of goals this season and Forest may well end up battening down the hatches and trying to secure a precious point.
