For the first time in over two decades, Manchester United and Nottingham Forest will battle at the City Ground, with the Red Devils looking to move back into third place in the Premier League.

As you get ready for your Premier League betting, here are our picks for the huge game this Sunday.

Manchester United to Win 

As many predicted, Nottingham is staring at relegation with just eight games left in the 2022/23 Premier League season.

Nottingham has so far let in 54 goals in the league, meaning only Bournemouth has conceded more. Worse yet, with 24 goals scored, only Everton has scored fewer.

United has bounced back very well from its 7-0 loss at Liverpool as it has beaten Real Betis twice, Fulham, Brentford and Everton to put itself back in contention for a third-place finish in the league.

Marcus Rashford will be a big miss for United, but Casemiro will return from suspension, just as Christian Eriksen and Anthony Martial returned from injuries last week. This only makes it even harder for Nottingham to win.

PICK: United to win 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 is +230 with FanDuel Sportsbook.

Anthony Martial to Score

It has been a brutal season for Martial on the injury front. The Frenchman has played only 17 times in all competitions, but he returned against Everton last week and scored just minutes into his return to make it seven goals in 17 games for him in 2022/23.

It means he is the third top scorer for United this season, despite playing 30 games less than Bruno Fernandes and Rashford. What’s more, with Rashford injured, all goalscoring attention will fall on the shoulders of Martial in this game.

PICK: Anthony Martial to score anytime is +170 with FanDuel Sportsbook.

Both Teams to Score and Under 2.5 Goals

United has struggled on the road this season, with six of its Premier League defeats coming away from home. It has still scored 44 times in 29 games and Martial, Fernandes and Eriksen will be confident in getting a goal or two.

At the same time, David De Gea in the United goal has kept the most shutouts in the Premier League this season with 13, and with only 24 goals scored for Nottingham in 30 games, it’s tough to see how it scores in this match.

At the same time, Nottingham has 11 players out injured, which includes striker Chris Wood.

PICK: Both teams to score and under 2.5 goals is +113 with FanDuel Sportsbook.
