Burnley v Nottingham Forest: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Relegated Burnley round off a disappointing Premier League campaign when they welcome Nottingham Forest to Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon.

The Tricky Trees are not mathematically safe, as they sit three points ahead of 18th-placed Luton, but the Hatters need to beat Fulham, hope Forest lose to the Clarets and also overturn a 12-goal goal difference to survive.

Burnley v Nottingham Forest betting tips and predictions

Under 2.5 goals - 6/4

Although it's extremely unlikely Forest slip into the bottom three on the final day, Nuno Espirito Santo won't allow any complacency from his side and a more defensive-minded approach could be adopted in Lancashire.

The Tricky Trees don't need to take any undue risks going forward and they shouldn't have too many problems against a Burnley outfit who know they will be playing in the Championship next season.

Vincent Kompany's troops are the lowest scorers at home in the league, netting just 18 times, while just two teams have netted fewer times than Forest's 20 on the road.

Under 2.5 goals has landed in three of Burnley's last five Turf Moor assignments, while the same bet has been successful in three of Forest's last five away encounters.

While the Clarets will be keen to give their supporters one last hurrah in the Premier League, it is unlikely the players will be busting a gut and it could make for quite a tepid fixture.

Callum Hudson-Odoi anytime goalscorer - 3/1

England international Callum Hudson-Odoi has been a bright spark for Forest over the last couple of weeks and he heads to Lancashire having netted three times in his last two appearances.

The 23-year-old bagged a brace in the 3-1 victory at Sheffield United before netting in the 3-2 loss at home to Chelsea last time out, taking his overall tally in the league to eight.

Only Chris Wood (12) has scored more for the Tricky Trees this season and that is testament to the hard work Hudson-Odoi has been putting in to his finishing, with the former Chelsea ace enjoying the best scoring campaign of his career.

Going up against a Burnley defence that has conceded 76 times this term, the Englishman will fancy his chances of ending the season on a high.

Morgan Gibbs-White to have over 0.5 assists - 11/4

Another important player for Forest has been Morgan Gibbs-White, who has netted five times to match his best scoring season in the Premier League.

While the 24-year-old Englishman has been chipping in with important strikes, it is his creativity that has been the biggest asset and he has amassed a club-leading 10 assists.

Gibbs-White has registered an assist in each of the last two matches and there looks to be every chance he could add another to his tally against a Burnley side that have been cut apart too easily.
