At the City Ground on Saturday, we will have the unusual sight of two new managers being unveiled as they look to steer their sides through to the end of the season. Forest and Derby parted company with Gary Brazil and Steve McLaren respectively and now it’s over to Mark Warburton and Gary Rowett to take the helm with the sides having different ambitions at this stage of the campaign.
Nottingham Forest’s slump sees them just hovering above the relegation zone but Derby have an outside chance of making the play offs. The East Midlands Derby always gives us drama but this week’s changes give us some added significance.
888Sport are the official sponsors of Nottingham Forest for the 2016/17 season and have got behind their team with a tempting enhanced odds offer for new customers. 888’s current book price sits at 39/20 but under the terms of this deal, you can carry that all the way up to 10/1.
In the standard markets, the prices are fairly tight with Derby the slight favourites for the win at a best of 37/25 with MarathonBet. Elsewhere, a Forest victory is listed at best odds of 11/5 with BetBright while the draw is quoted at a top price of 12/5 with Bet365.
So, it doesn’t look to be the safest punt of the weekend but if you’d already weighed up the odds and decided to bet on a Forest victory, here’s what you need to do in order to get involved.
As we previously mentioned, this is an offer for new customers to 888Sport so if you don’t already hold an account here, you are eligible to sign up for one via the promotional page. Register your details in a process that should take just a couple of minutes and then you will be taken to the funding page. Make your first deposit of at least £10.00 but do not use an Ewallet to do this as they are disqualified for the offer.
Use a debit or credit card if possible and when your acceptable funds clear – usually instantly – you must now bet on Forest to beat Derby County in this match. If you are a winner, 888 will send any subsequent returns into your new account at that standard book price while the balance, up to that enhanced figure of 10/1, comes back to you as a free bet token.
888Sport’s free bet terms state that these will hit your account within 48 hours and you then have 7 days in which to use them before they run out.
The arrival of any new manager will make things slightly less predictable but with two new bosses in opposing dugouts, this match is even harder to call. It certainly should even things out in terms of the result so, if you were looking to back Nottingham Forest to beat Derby County this weekend, this new customer deal from 888 could be just for you.
