Bournemouth v Crystal Palace Premier League Preview, 7th April 3.00pm

The Cherries are holding their ground in the middle of the table and should be safe for the season. The same cannot be said of the Eagles though who will be banking on something of a favourable fixture list in their run-in to the end of the season to get themselves safe. They are only two points above the drop zone heading into the weekend so have plenty still to sweat on.

Bournemouth v Crystal Palace Betting Odds*

Bournemouth 6/4, Crystal Palace 15/8, Draw 11/5* (Betting Odds taken at 00:26 a.m. on April 5th, 2018)

Bournemouth News and Form

Bournemouth have only suffered the two defeats since Christmas so it has been a hugely positive second half of the season for them. They picked up a point last weekend at Watford thanks to a last-minute equaliser from Jermain Defoe. They have produced a W1 D3 L1 record in their last five league games now. Their home form is solid with just one the defeat in their last seven at the Vitality and they beat down West Brom in their last home fixture. Overall for the season, Bournemouth are W6 D4 L6 for the season at home where they have averaged 1.4 goals per game but have only managed to collect a clean sheet in 12% of their games. Both teams to score at bet365, therefore, is a decent proposition at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on March 5th, 2018 at 4:17 p.m.). In total, only 25% of Bournemouth’s home games have finished under 2.5 goals and each of their last eight home games have made it to at least three goals, so there is a good trend there. The Cherries are on a seven-match scoring streak at home but are without a clean sheet in ten there. Of the goals that they have produced at the Vitality this season, 70% of them have come in the second half of matches. The Cherries are on a thirteen match scoring streak in the top flight home and away combined.

Crystal Palace News and Form

Crystal Palace have gone W1 L5 in their last six Premier League games, but to be fair they had three really tough games in that sequence against Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United to deal with. The fixture list opens up ahead of them now until the end of the season and that will boost their chances of getting safe. They produced a 2-0 win at Huddersfield in their last away game, snapping a four-match winless streak of road from that they were on. The Eagles have netted in each of their last eight road games and are good value to get on the scoresheet against Bournemouth’s slack defence. Palace have only managed to return the 12 away goals for the season while they have conceded an average of 1.5 per road game. It is worth looking
over 2.5 goals with bet365 is at 17/20 odds* (betting odds taken on March 5th, 2018 at 4:17 p.m.). Of the goals Palace have scored on the road, 67% of them have come in the second half of matches this season and Luka Milivojevic is their top scorer away from home this season with a five-goal haul. Christian Benteke (2) is the only other Palace player with more than one goal on the road this term.

Bournemouth v Crystal Palace Head to Head


Palace won this corresponding fixture 2-0 last season and they are unbeaten in their last three duels with the Cherries in the top flight (W1 D2). There was a 2-2 draw between them at Selhurst Park back in December and from the five previous Premier League meetings between the two clubs, it is actually Bournemouth who are 2-1 ahead with two drawn matches. They have only taken one point from their previous two Premier League home games against the Eagles though, failing to score in both.

Who will win – Bournemouth v Crystal Palace Predictions

A draw wouldn’t be out of the picture in his one. As last weekend proved, Bournemouth have a lot of resilience and fight about them and winning games on the road is still a tough thing to do for the Eagles in their situation. They would probably take a point out of this one.
