The English Premier League returns after a two-week break and Nottingham Forest and Brighton are under great pressure. Nottingham is out of the top 10, while Brighton is winless since late September. Therefore, you can expect this match to turn into a back-and-forth battle since the first whistle.
Ups and Downs for Nottingham Forest
Before the international break, Nottingham Forest visited West Ham United, losing 3-2 with a late goal scored by Tomas Soucek. At some point, Nottingham Forest was up 2-1.
Before that defeat, they beat Aston Villa 2-0 at home, with Ola Aina and Orel Mangala as the scorers. Nottingham lost possession with 26% and finished with five shots in total, eight less than the Villagers.
Things have been considerably better at home, where Nottingham Forest is undefeated. They own a 2-3-0 record with eight goals for and five against. Yes, they haven’t faced any of the teams in the top five, but still.
There is a reason to consider including Nottingham Forest in your soccer picks: Taiwo Awoniyi, the team’s top scorer with four goals.
Brighton With Three Draws in a Row
Las Vegas soccer odds are more than right; Brighton is a very good team, so good that they already defeated Newcastle United, drew against Liverpool, and lost to Manchester City by only one goal. Head coach Roberto De Zerbi has done a great job establishing a strong mentality no matter the environment.
Most recently, they drew 1-1 to Sheffield United. They were heavily favored in our English Premier League odds, but Brighton had to play with one player less for the last 20 minutes of the game. Mahmoud Dahoud was sent off and won’t be available for Saturday’s clash.
The good news is that Brighton’s attacking unit has talent to spare with Ansu Fati, Adam Lallana, Joao Pedro, Kaoru Mitoma, and Evan Ferguson, the team’s top scorer with five goals. Ferguson is expected to start here since a lot of players won’t be at 100% due to international duty.

Brighton is 2-1-2 on the road, scoring in each game regardless of the result.
Advantage for the Tricky Trees
These two have collided 35 times and Nottingham Forest is on top thanks to a 15-10-10 record. Last season, the first EPL leg finished with a goalless draw, while Nottingham won the second 3-1.
The total for Saturday’s clash is set at three goals, with the over offering a great price in our sportsbook, and I recommend you take it.
