Bournemouth v Swansea Prediction & Betting Tips, 5th May 20182nd May 2018 / lee
Bournemouth v Swansea Premier League Preview, 5th May 3.00pm
The Cherries are stuck in a poor run of form with them having lost three straight games, including last weekend’s south coast derby at Southampton. But they have been playing alright, just without the rewards. Swansea will be looking for survival points at the Vitality Stadium on their visit on Saturday as the Welsh club head into the next round of matches just a point away from safety.
Bournemouth v Swansea Betting Odds*
Bournemouth 6/5, Swansea 21/10, Draw 12/5* (Betting Odds taken at 8:08 p.m. on April 30th, 2018)
Bournemouth News and Form
The form of the Cherries just isn’t there at the moment and they are winless in five and have lost their last three straight. They did alright against rivals Southampton at St Mary’s last weekend but still ended up losing 2-1 because their defence has lost its way considerably. The Cherries have conceded at least two goals in each of their last five league games. They are W6 D5 L7 this season on home soil and their last two defeats there have been excusable ones against top four sides. Only two of their home losses this season have been against sides currently sixth or lower. So that’s pretty respectable. They don’t have a clean sheet in any of their last twelve at home, which isn’t. Both teams to score with Ladbrokes is at 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 7:44 p.m. on May 1st, 2018). 72% of Bournemouth’s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals so that is another decent trend you could follow. The Cherries mathematically are not safe with two to play, but three points can get them there.
Swansea News and Form
The Swans are in bigger trouble as they are only a point above the drop zone so they are a little more desperate for the three points. They will have huge games coming up after this against Southampton and Stoke at home, so there is still a good chance of survival. Anything out of this would be a bonus. The Swans have won only two away games all season (D6 L10) so it’s hard to back them with a lot of confidence really. They are currently on a seven-match winless streak of form away from home in the top flight and they are without a clean sheet in any of their last three. Overall they have only managed to tally the 11 goals away from the Liberty Stadium this season. In the Ladbrokes correct score market the shortest priced option is the 1-1 draw at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 7:44 p.m. on May 1st, 2018). Given what is ahead of them still, the Swans may be a little more focused on avoiding defeat in this one. A point could be pretty precious for them. They have conceded 1.7 goals per away game this season though.
Bournemouth v Swansea Head to Head
There was a 0-0 draw when the two met at the Liberty Stadium back in November. That snapped a three-match winning streak that the Cherries were on against Swansea. They are unbeaten in their five previous Premier League encounters with the Swans and the Cherries have netted at least two goals in each of their four Premier League successes against them. Seven of the last nine meetings have gone over 2.5 goals.
Who will win – Bournemouth v Swansea Predictions
Swansea have come through a couple of difficult games without success and they are just struggling again. Bournemouth does look the more likely of the two to go and snap their winless streak. They have far more to offer going forward and their defence may have an easier time in this. Home win.
