Nottingham and Derby are in the fight for the playoffs of the Championship. Both sides won just once in the previous four rounds, which slightly distances them from the desired spot in the Top 6. In the last round, Nottingham earned one point in their away game versus Preston (0-0), while Derby surprisingly lost at home against Millwall (0-1).

As expected, both teams earned more points at home then as guests. Derby are not performing so bad in their away games, but in the previous five fixtures as guests, they have just one victory. Nottingham will have an advantage, and we think that they will not lose. We expect tactical scuffle and very few goals. I will back Double Chance: Nottingham to Win or Draw and Under 3.5 Goals, with Nottingham 1-0 Correct Score. We recommend placing this bet in bet365, where you can take advantage of a $100 Welcome Bonus and regular promotions for loyal customers.
