Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal odds
*Odds correct as of 08:30 on January 22
We’re in the second half of the 2023/24 Premier League season, and things are heating up at both ends of the table. Arsenal are fighting for the top four and title, occupying third place. They suffered a rough patch to end 2023, going winless in three, including back-to-back defeats to West Ham and Fulham, but returned to winning ways against Crystal Palace last time out.
Nottingham Forest, meanwhile, were getting dangerously close to the relegation zone. A poor run of form under Steve Cooper saw Forest in danger of falling into the bottom three, which caused the board to make a change. Nuno Espirito Santo was brought in, and while he lost his first game to Bournemouth, Forest won their next two league matches — over Manchester United and Newcastle United — however, they suffered a loss to Brentford in the most recent matchday.
