With their hopes of winning their 14th league title all but gone, Arsenal look to bounce back from an embarrassing loss when they visit Nottingham Forest in a 2022-23 English Premier League matchup on Saturday. Arsenal (25-6-5) trail two-time reigning champion Manchester City by four points and has but two games remaining, while the Citizens have three to play. The Gunners' chances of capturing the crown were all but extinguished last Sunday, when they suffered a 3-0 setback against Brighton & Hove Albion. Nottingham Forest (8-10-18), who are 16th in the table, have earned points in three of their last four contests as they fight to stay above the relegation line.

Kickoff at City Ground is set for 12:30 p.m. ET. Arsenal are the -160 favorites (risk $160 to win $100) in the latest Arsenal vs. Nottingham Forest odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while Forest are +410 underdogs.

Why you should back Arsenal

Despite allowing the league title to slip through their fingers, the Gunners should be eager to atone for their disappointing showing against Brighton. The team, which failed to score for just the third time this season in that match, are second in the EPL with 83 goals and a plus-41 goal differential. Arsenal posted a dominant 5-0 victory against Forest earlier this season and could take out their frustrations on the Tricky Trees again.

Captain Martin Odegaard is tied for seventh in the league in goals (15) with teammate Gabriel Martinelli, who appears to be done for the season with an ankle injury. The 24-year-old Odegaard tallied in the previous meeting with Forest and has produced five goals over his last six outings. Winger Bukayo Saka has set a career high with 13 tallies and ranks second in the Premier League with 11 assists -- also a personal best. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest have struggled this season but have been playing better of late. Since losing four consecutive contests, the side is unbeaten in three of its last four, posting two wins and a draw in that span. Forest are one of the lowest-scoring teams in the Premier League with only 36 goals in as many matches, but has converted at least twice in four of their last five outings.

Forwards Brennan Johnson and Taiwo Awoniyi share the team lead with eight goals apiece, and the latter has been on fire of late. The 25-year-old Nigerian has doubled his season total over the last two contests, recording braces in Forest's victory against Southampton on May 8 and their draw with Chelsea last Saturday. Midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White has recorded five goals, including three in his last five games, and is tied for 12th in the EPL with seven assists. See which team to pick here.
