Man City vs. Nottingham Forest prediction, odds, time: Premier League picks, April 28 best bets by expert

Reigning champion Manchester City continue their march toward another Premier League title when they hit the road to face Nottingham Forest on Sunday.

Why you should back Manchester City

City enter Sunday’s match on a roll. The Citizens are unbeaten in their last 30 matches across all competitions, which is a club record. They also are unbeaten in their last 18 Premier League matches. The club has not lost since a 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa on Dec. 6.

In addition, Phil Foden is a world class midfielder who is in the midst of the best season of his career. The 23-year-old ranks second on the team and seventh in the Premier League in goals, a career-best 20. He also has seven assists, which also is a career-high and is tied for second on the team. In Thursday’s 4-0 victory against Brighton, he scored twice. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Nottingham Forest

Forest are a much better team at home than on the road. In 17 matches at The City Ground this season, they have five wins, five draws and seven defeats. By contrast, in 17 road matches, Forest have two wins, four draws and 11 defeats.

In addition, Forest will be the much fresher team this weekend. Sunday’s match will be Man City’s fourth in 12 days. Meanwhile, Forest has not played since a 2-0 loss to Everton on Sunday. See which team to pick here.
