Bournemouth News and Form
It has been a great season from Bournemouth so far with a W5 D1 L2 record on the board. That has been enough to see them start up again after the international break in sixth place in the table. This could be a good home game for them too as they face up to their south coast rivals who are out of form. The Cherries have won back to back games so are looking for their third straight fixture in a row.
Bournemouth have not put on a great defensive show this season but are appealing at 11/4 to win to nil* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 5:41 pm). They are undefeated at home this season with a tremendously positive W3 D1 record on the board.
They have scored at least two goals in each of their league home games as well. So in Bournemouth v Southampton betting tips a 2-0 correct score for the home side looks a decent proposition at 10/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm).
Of the ten home goals that they have come up with this season, four of them have been in the final fifteen minutes of matches. They have yet to concede a single goal in the first half of any home game this term. A Bournemouth half time win should, therefore, have some decent appeal.
Southampton News and Form
The Saints have been having a tough time of things again this season and pressure is on boss Mark Hughes for sure. They have just the one victory this season and they head back into action on a three-match losing streak. The reading in that gets worse because they failed to score in any of those three losses.
Both teams not to score is at 11/10 odds for Bournemouth v Southampton predictions* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). Southampton have posted a W1 L3 record this season on their travels, having lost their last two (again without scoring) at Liverpool and the newly promoted Wolves.
They have shipped at least two goals in each of their three away defeats this season and although they avoided defeat against the Cherries last term they may have difficulties in doing so again. Southampton have scored just six goals this season, the joint third-lowest tally in the top flight so far.
Bournemouth v Southampton Head to Head
Southampton collected four points from their two games against Bournemouth last season. In the six previous Premier League meetings between the two south coast sides, Southampton are W3 D2 L1 against the Cherries. Bournemouth are W1 D1 L1 in their three home games against Southampton. Two of the six Premier League meetings made it over 2.5 goals.
Who will win – Bournemouth v Southampton Predictions
The Cherries are more likely to acquit themselves better to the task at hand and you can see the Saints just turning up and trying to contain. Bournemouth are bold enough in attack to break their rivals. Home win.
