In the model of the inflaton nonminimal coupling to the Gauss–Bonnet term, we discuss the constant-roll inflation with constant , constant and constant , respectively, with the additional assumption that is a constant. Using the Bessel function approximation, we get the analytical expressions for the scalar and tensor power spectrum and derive the scalar spectral index and the tensor to scalar ratio r to the first order of . By using the Planck 2018 observations constraint on and r, we obtain some feasible parameter space and show the result on the region. The scalar potential is also reconstructed in some special cases.
