The English Premier League game between Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace features as’s best bet for Friday August 18.

Bet Of The Day August 18 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Forest picked up 30 of their 38 EPL points last season at home
  • Forest won their last three home games of last season (including Arsenal & Brighton)
  • Forest are unbeaten at home vs Sheffield since December 2008
  • Sheffield lost 1-0 at home to Crystal Palace last week
  • Sheffield only managed one shot on target in that loss

We’re off to the Premier League for today’s best bet as Nottingham Forest and Sheffield United both target a first win of the new season.

At home, we’re confident Forest can pick up all three points.

Forest really struggle on the road, but at the City Ground they are a different team, picking up 30 of their 38 points at the venue last season.

Forest finished last season with three straight wins at home, including conquering the likes of Arsenal and Brighton.

Although their opening game ended in defeat at the hands of Arsenal last week, Forest produced an impressive performance in a 2-1 defeat on the road.

Sheffield United meanwhile are newly promoted and are one of the favourites for relegation this season.

Sheffield were poor in their opening game at home last week against Crystal Palace, suffering a 1-0 defeat. Sheffield managed just one shot on goal (compared to Palace having eight, along with 24 shots in total). They were dominated and now must travel to a ground where they haven’t won at since December 2008.

With Sheffield looking thin up front, they could struggle to create chances once again. Forest are one of the best home teams in the Premier League, so they look poised for their first win of the season here.
