Bournemouth’s home form has not been as hot as they would have liked it to be, struggling to put the wins on the board at the Vitality. Will they find the going tough on home soil again on the weekend as Liverpool pay a visit. The Reds have shown plenty of scrap and the ability to win away games when not playing well. Can they collect three points on the south coast? Read our Bournemouth v Liverpool betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 4th, 2018 at 7:41 p.m.)
The Cherries snapped a slump of four straight defeats by collecting three home points against Huddersfield in midweek. That moved them on to a W2 D2 L2 record on home soil this season in the top flight. They were on a three-match winless streak of form at the Vitality before getting that win over the Terriers in midweek. At home this season in the top flight Bournemouth have come up with 14 goals, conceding 10. Of their home games, this season 75% of them have gone over 2.5 goals. Bournemouth are currently running on a six-match scoring streak in the top flight.
They are without a clean sheet in their last five though, which has helped push each of their last six Premier League games to produce at least three goals in each. 70% of their home goals conceded have been in the second half of games. Bournemouth have scored 64% of home goals in the first half of matches at the Vitality. They have not been trailing at the halftime break on home soil this season. Against the current top six in the league, Bournemouth have gone D1 L3 in the four matches. Callum Wilson has scored in back to back league games
Liverpool won both league meetings with Bournemouth last term
The Reds are unbeaten in three against the Cherries
Each of the last five EPL meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Liverpool are W4 D1 L1 in their last six EPL games against Bournemouth
Bournemouth are W1 L2 in three previous Premier League home games against Liverpool
Liverpool fought back from being a goal down at Turf Moor against Burnley in midweek to record a 3-1 win. That maintained their unbeaten record for the season and because they are kicking off earlier than Man City on the weekend, they have the chance to put some pressure on the league leaders. Liverpool are W6 D2 away from Anfield this season in the Premier League. They have collected three points in each of their away games against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. There has been a total of 15 away goals scored by Liverpool in eight games.
Liverpool have only conceded five times on the road this season. Exactly half of their away games this term have gone over 2.5 goals. They have tallied a clean sheet in 38% of their games away from Anfield in the top flight. Just once on their travels so far this term have Liverpool be trailing at half time (W4 D3). They are on a seven-match scoring streak in the top flight, that’s home and away combined. They have struck in each of their eight away games this season. 67% of their away goals have been in the second half of games. Liverpool have the best defensive record in this season’s top flight
Liverpool look the likelier of the two to come up with a victory in the game. Bournemouth’s defence is probably going to have a hard time keeping the Reds at bay all match. The home form of the Cherries hasn’t been hot and Liverpool can strike. Liverpool to win & both teams to score.

Things are not going great for the Cherries as they have lost four in a row. They were knocked off at Man City on the weekend and need to desperately find a way to snap this slump. Will they take the chance to make amends on home soil as they welcome Huddersfield who still trying to claw their way away from the drop zone? Read our Bournemouth v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:47 p.m.)
Bournemouth paid a trip to Man City on the weekend and end up 3-1 losers. That was their fourth straight Premier League defeat. It was also the fourth game in a row in which they had conceded at least two goals. The Cherries have found the back of the net in each of their last five though so both teams to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds take on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:07 pm). At home this season in the top flight Bournemouth are W3 D2 L2. They have suffered back to back 2-1 losses at the Vitality though against Man Utd and Arsenal.
But in their four games at home against sides 8th or lower currently, Bournemouth are W3 D1. They have fired off twelve goals in their seven home games so far and 71% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Also, both teams have scored in 71% of Bournemouth’s home games this season. Over 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds take on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:07 pm). The Cherries have not been losing at half time at home this season (W3 D3) and 78% of the goals they have conceded at home have been in the second half of matches. So they are a decent option not to be losing at the break.
The Cherries won 4-0 at home against Huddersfield last season
Bournemouth are W2 D1 L1 in their last four against the Terriers
Bournemouth’s last two wins against them have been 4-0 scorelines
Five of the last six meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Both teams have scored in four of the last six
Huddersfield had their positive momentum snapped on the weekend as they lost 2-1 at home against Brighton. They had gone three unbeaten before that. Still, Huddersfield have earned more points in their last four games than they did in their opening ten games this season. Their form out on the road reads W1 D2 L3 and they are on a four-match scoring streak in the league (W2 D1 L1). In total across their six away games, they have averaged a goal per game. Defensively though the Terriers have conceded at over two goals per away game on average. In the correct score market a Bournemouth 2-1 is 8/1 odds* (betting odds take on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:07 pm)
The only clean sheet for Huddersfield this season came in a 2-0 win out at Wolves in their last road game. Of the six goals that they have come up with a way home, four of them have been produced in the first half of matches. No team has scored fewer goals in the top flight this season than Huddersfield. Only three sides currently have fewer away points than Huddersfield have. A Bournemouth half time win is at 13/10 odds* (betting odds take on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:07 pm). That is worth a look as Huddersfield have been losing at half time in half of their road games this term.
Huddersfield have done much better lately but they still have a lot of improving to do. The Cherries have to break out of their slump soon and their positive approach could pay dividends in this one. Bournemouth to win & both teams to score.

Manchester City v Bournemouth Premier League Preview, 1st December 3.00pm
Manchester City are buzzing at the moment and they recorded another big goals-haul last weekend on the road at West Ham. That is a five-match winning streak that they have put together at the top of the table. Bournemouth will have a tough game on their hands at the Etihad and the Cherries have just fallen out of form on a run of three straight losses. Read our Manchester City v Bournemouth betting tips for more.
Manchester City 1/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 27th, 2018 at 4:55 p.m.)
City extended their winning streak to five last weekend as they produced an easy 4-0 away win at West Ham. That was the fifth time this season they had scored at least four goals in a league game. Overall the Citizens have produced a W11 D2 record in thirteen league games this season and they have won all seven of their fixtures at the Etihad. In their home games, they have produced a fantastic average of 3.8 goals per home game and they have come up with a staggering fourteen goals in their last three home games. Manchester City to win to nil is at 5/6 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 6:22 pm)
The reigning champions have shipped only the four home goals this season and of those, three of them have been in the first half of matches. Pep Guardiola’s men have won 43% of their home games with a clean sheet. They have also scored in both halves of every home game in this campaign and have been winning at halftime in six of their seven home fixtures (D1). With that in mind a Manchester City/Manchester City half-time/full-time is a 2/5 odds option* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 6:22 pm). City have come up with at least two goals in each and every home game this season and their last three at the Etihad have all gone above 2.5 goals. David Silva is on a three match scoring streak in the league, opening the scoring in two of those games
Man City won this corresponding fixture 4-0 last season
City have won all six previous EPL meetings with Bournemouth
Bournemouth have conceded at least two goals in their six EPL games against City
City have scored at least four goals in each of their three previous home games against the Cherries in the EPL
Both teams have scored in just two of the four previous Premier League meetings
Not the game that Bournemouth need right now as they are trying to snap themselves out of a three-match losing slump. They took a 2-1 reverse at home against Arsenal last weekend, and each of their last three defeats have been by that very scoreline. The shortest-priced option in the correct score market for this one is a Man City 3-0 at 7/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 6:22 pm). Away from home in the top flight this season Bournemouth have produced a W3 L3 record so far. Home and away combined they are D1 L3 against sides currently above them in the table.
83% of their away games have gone above 2.5 goals and each of their last four on the road have made it over the mark. 33% of the goals conceded this season home and away have been in the final 15 minutes of matches. Over 3.5 goals is 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 6:22 pm). They have at least found the back of the net in each of their last three away games and have failed to score in two of their six on the road. In three of their six away games so far this term the Cherries have been trailing at the halftime break. With the pressure of the losing streak on top of them, this is such a tough game for the Cherries right now.
There has been a good buzz about Bournemouth this season but with three straight defeats, the pressure is on them. This is not the kind of game they need right now. The Citizens are firing on all cylinders and the only prediction that makes sense is a home win to nil.
28th November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Vitality looks set to host an entertaining clash on Sunday as Arsenal come down to the south coast for a visit. Heading into the weekend Arsenal and Bournemouth were fifth and sixth respectively. After Saturday’s action, the Cherries go from eighth but a win puts them back into sixth place and just a point behind the Gunners. Read our Bournemouth v Arsenal betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 24th, 2018 at 9:15 p.m.)
The Cherries have lost their last two league games by a 2-1 scoreline in the top flight. So they are just going to have to start fighting back a bit. That mini-slump happened after a great stretch of W3 D1 in four games. At the Vitality this season Bournemouth are W3 D2 L1 for the season and across those home fixtures, they have tallied eleven goals in their six home games, conceding seven. In total 75% of Bournemouth’s league games this season has gone over 2.5 goals so there should be goals in this.
Seven of their last eight games in the top flight have gone over 2.5 goals. Backing that over 2.5 goals option can be done at 4/9 odds* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 6:49 pm). Bournemouth have conceded seven goals at home this season in the league, six of those have come in the second half of matches. As a huge positive only four teams have scored more league goals than they have done. They have collected the two clean sheets at the Vitality this term and Both teams to score is at 4/9 odds* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 6:49 pm).
Bournemouth won 2-1 in last season’s corresponding fixture
Arsenal have scored at least two goals in five of the six previous EPL meetings
Each of the last four meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Both teams have scored in three of the last meetings
Arsenal are W4 D1 L1 in six previous EPL games against Bournemouth
Arsenal are on a fantastic stretch of eleven games without defeat in the top flight. They maintained their unbeaten run with a 1-1 home draw against Wolves last time out. That was their third drawn match on the bounce. Out on their travels this season in the top flight, Arsenal have posted a W3 D1 L1 record. Arsenal’s last away game ended in a 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace. Going back to the expectation of goals in this game on Sunday, there have been over 2.5 goals in nine of Arsenal’s last ten away games.
Arsenal themselves have scored at least two goals in each of their last five league away games. In the correct score market an Arsenal 2-1 option is at 17/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 6:49 pm). The Gunners have actually averaged 2.8 goals per away game which is a great return. 80% of their away games have gone over 3.5 goals. As a negative against them, they haven’t managed to pick up a clean sheet away from the Emirates yet. Strikers Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette missed international duty with injuries. They have been back training with Arsenal though.
This should be an entertaining clash and we predict goals at both ends in it. Bournemouth may just have gone off the boil a little bit and remain defensively shaky. Arsenal may have the scoring tough to edge them. Away win.

Can the Magpies get together some momentum after having won for the first time this season? They got a victory over Watford last weekend at home and stay on Tyneside for the visit of Bournemouth this weekend. The Cherries gave a great account of themselves in a defeat against Manchester United and will be keen to mount a response. Read our Newcastle v Bournemouth betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 5th, 2018 at 8:54 p.m.)
The Magpies broke their duck for the season with a 1-0 home success over Watford last weekend. The hero of the day was Ayoze Perez who netted the only goal of the game in the 65th minute. That was Newcastle’s first goal since a 10th-minute strike against Manchester United back on October 6th. Still it just the one goal in their last three games from the Magpies. Under 2.5 goals is the way to go therefore at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm) for this one.
Each of Newcastle’s last three games and five of their last six in the league have gone that way. Newcastle’s home form is W1 L5 so they have a long way to go before they start turning things around. They have produced only the four goals on home soil this season. The Magpies have taken back to back clean sheets in the league as they had played out a 0-0 draw at Southampton before the win over Watford last weekend. Both teams NOT to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm). Three of the four home goals that Newcastle have scored this season have been in the first half of matches.
Bournemouth took four points against Newcastle last season
The Cherries have won their two previous Premier League trips to Newcastle
This will be just the fifth EPL meeting between them
Bournemouth are W3 L1 from the four previous EPL clashes
The Cherries had their four-match unbeaten streak of run snapped as they lost 2-1 at home against Manchester United last weekend, but they gave a good account of themselves. They have been a really positive side this season and they will carry a threat out at St James’ Park. The Cherries have won their last two road games, beating Watford 4-0 and then Fulham 3-0 so they have the goals in them without question. Callum Wilson has been carrying goalscoring form this season and he is at 13/8 in the anytime goalscorer market for the game* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm).
The overall away form of Bournemouth this season is W3 D0 L2 and they have tallied the nine goals. On both occasions this season in which they failed to score an away goal, they lost (at Chelsea and Burnley). The Cherries have only lost one game of six against teams currently in the bottom half of the table (W4 D1). That was a big away defeat at Burnley. Bournemouth have not conceded a goal in the first half hour of any away game this season. Only the sides currently in the top four in the league have scored more league goals than the Cherries have managed this season. Bournemouth to win to nil is at 7/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm).
Bournemouth have produced some great football this season and they gave as good as they got against Manchester United last weekend. They could well have enough to upset what is still a very vulnerable-looking Newcastle side.
8th November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Bournemouth will kick off at home on Saturday lunchtime three points ahead of the Red Devils in the league standings. Opening that up to a six-point lead would be huge form them. They have plenty of great form behind them to make a good case for themselves. United have just started to see better returns, but their defence still remains a liability for them. Read our Bournemouth v Manchester United betting tips for more.
Manchester United 19/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 31st, 2018 at 6:23 p.m.)
Bournemouth have remained undefeated in their last four Premier League games after producing a strong 3-0 win over Fulham last weekend. In that run of games, Bournemouth are W3 D1 and they have taken a clean sheet in each of their last three. Overall this season at the Vitality Stadium Bournemouth have picked up a W3 D2 record from their five games. They have collected a clean sheet in two of those. Bournemouth have averaged two goals per game at home this term.
So there are a lot of positives. 60% of their games at the Vitality have gone over 2.5 goals. 70% of all their matches this season have gone over. For Bournemouth v Manchester United betting tips, over 2.5 goals is at 8/11 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 12:02 pm). There is a small trend with two of Bournemouth’s last three home fixtures against the Red Devils getting above the goal line.
There has been no home goal conceded in the first half of any game from Bournemouth this season. The half time draw is at 13/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 12:02 pm). To the full credit of Eddie Howe’s men, only the current top four in the Premier League have each scored more goals than Bournemouth have so far managed in the top flight. They are 13 points better off than they were after ten games of last season’s campaign so it’s a huge step forward. Callum Wilson has the scoring form with three goals in three games for the Cherries.
Manchester United took back to back clean sheet wins over Bournemouth last season
United are unbeaten in five EPL games against the Cherries (W4 D1)
The Red Devil are W9 D3 L2 in the overall head to head with the Cherries
Both teams have scored in four of the previous EPL meetings
The Cherries are W1 L2 at home against United in the Premier League
Manchester United have moved to a three-match undefeated streak of form with a W2 D1 record. They held on to bank a 2-1 success over Everton at Old Trafford last weekend. The big trend with Manchester United’s league wins this season is that all but one of them have been by a one-goal margin only. Three of them have been 2-1 scoreline. Manchester United to win by a one-goal margin is at 11/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 12:02 pm)
Out on the road in the top flight this season the Red Devils have picked up a W2 D1 L2 record and they have collected just the one point in their last two road games. There has been no clean sheet from Manchester United in any of their last six league outings and away from home, they have just one for the season. 80% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. United have both scored 9 and conceded 9 goals this season on their travels
The shortest-priced option in the correct score market is the 1-1 draw at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 12:02 pm). Main striker Romelu Lukaku was dropped for last weekend’s game against Everton because of his scoreless streak of form. Anthony Martial has stepped it up for them though as he is now on a three-match scoring streak in the Premier League, netting four goals in a sequence. United have scored in all five of their away games this season and have scored in each of their last four visits to Bournemouth.
The draw is our betting tip for Bournemouth v Manchester United. A lot of the good results that Bournemouth have churned out have been against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. This will be a sterner test and United look as if they are upping their game a bit. Draw.

This should be a good Premier League vd Championship clash on Tuesday night in the EFL Cup. Norwich will be heading down to the Vitality hoping to cause an upset in taking out a top-flight opponent. However, Bournemouth continued in their positive form on the weekend too, keeping themselves firmly in the top six of the Premier League. Read our Bournemouth v Norwich betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 28th, 2018 at 2:00 p.m.)
The Cherries are on a five-match unbeaten streak of form at the moment after banking a 3-0 win at Fulham in the league on the weekend. They have also taken a clean sheet in each of their last three games and on the back of that a Bournemouth to win to nil is at 2/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 28th, 2018 at 2:10 pm). The Cherries have been scoring very well this season with at least two goals returned in each of their home fixtures across all competitions. They are unbeaten at the Vitality Stadium with a W5D2 record so far on the board.
In the correct score market at Bournemouth 3-0 option is at 12/1 odds with the shortest priced option there the 1-1 draw at 13/2* (betting odds taken on October 28th, 2018 at 2:10 pm). They have played both of their League Cup games this season at home, where the Cherries eased to wins over the MK Dons and Blackburn, scoring exactly three goals in both of those games. Jordan Ibe has scored in both EFL Cup games for the Cherries this season and is a 9/4 anytime goalscorer option* (betting odds taken on October 28th, 2018 at 2:10 pm)
This will be the first meeting since the 20151/16 Premier League
Norwich are W3 D2 L1 in their last six against Bournemouth
In a 2000 League Cup meeting, Norwich won a replay away at Bournemouth
Four of the last five meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Norwich took a win over Brentford in the Championship on the weekend and that moved them on to three straight victories. They have produced some strong form as well with a W8 D1 L1 return in their last ten fixtures across all competitions. They have a hugely positive W5 D2 record in their last seven road games. They have also won away at a Premier League ground in this season’s EFL Cup as they beat Cardiff 3-1 in South Wales.
Their other EFL Cup wins this term have been against Stevenage and Wycombe. All three of Norwich’s EFL Cup games have produced at least four goals so there would be a high expectancy of goals in this one. Over 2.5 goals is at 7/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 28th, 2018 at 2:10 pm). The Canaries have only bagged one clean sheet all season long though, so they will remain vulnerable at the back.
Bournemouth should be able to shade this on home soil. Norwich have done well lately, but the Cherries are at home and have those quality options to call upon from the bench if they need to do so. Home win.
28th October 2018 / lee - Category: FA Cup & League Cup Betting
It is clear that Fulham are going to be struggling this season as their defence is just totally there for the taking at the moment. They lost a crucial battle with Cardiff last weekend to slip down into the bottom three. Meanwhile, the Cherries continue to fly high and start the weekend in sixth place in the table. Read our Fulham v Bournemouth betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 24th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
It was a telling defeat which Fulham suffered last weekend. They went to face Cardiff, who hadn’t won a game all season and weren’t looking a scoring threat. Fulham tanked to a heavy 4-2 defeat after opening the scoring in South Wales. Quite how boss SLavisa Jokanovic plugs the big holes that the Fulham defence has, remains a mystery. The Cottagers have now conceded twelve goals in their last three league games and are just taking a battering. Over 2.5 goals is at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 3:03 pm).
Fulham’s home form reads W1 D1 L2 so far this season and they were hammered 5-1 by Arsenal in their last home game. They had taken four points from their two previous home games before that though. Fulham do have a pretty strong front line and have scored in all but two of their last eight games in the league. It’s just their defence which has been woeful. Both teams to score is at 4/9 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 3:03 pm). That looks a very reasonable option for Fulham v Bournemouth betting tips. Andre Schurrle has a goal in each of Fulham’s last two games. The Cottagers have conceded ten goals in their six four home games so far.
The last time these two were together was in the 2014/15 Championship
Bournemouth won both of those meetings
The Cherries have scored seven goals in their last two against Fulham
Looking back Bournemouth are W4 D2 in their last six against the Cottagers
The Cherries are enjoying life up in the top six after picking up 0-0 draw with Southampton last weekend. That leaves them with an unbeaten W2 D1 record in their last three games. They have been really strong at home and they produced a strong win in their last away game too, destroying Watford 4-0 at Vicarage Road. That means that they are W2 L2 on their travels so are a little unpredictable. The win over Watford gave them their first away clean sheet of this season’s campaign.
A Bournemouth 2-1 correct score option is at 10/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 3:03 pm) and that appeals. At the end of the day, they should have the edge over the struggling Cottagers. There have been over 2.5 goals scored in seven of Bournemouth’s last eight away games in the Premier League. It may be worth considering Draw/Bournemouth half time/full time bet as well here as Fulham have been drawing at hal ftime and losing at full time in their last 3 matches (Premier League). That option will fetch an 11/2 quote* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 3:03 pm).
Because the defence of Fulham is nothing short of a shambles at the moment, and the Cherries are the ones playing with a great deal of confidence, we have to have a look at the away win and both teams to score.
25th October 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Cherries return to league action sat in sixth place in the league and won three of their four games before the international break. So it’s all smiles at the Vitality and they will be expecting more out of this south coast derby. Southampton are once again in a mess having lost their last three games. Read our Bournemouth v Southampton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:16 p.m.)
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.
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.
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.
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.

The Hornets have failed to win any of their last three games now so they are losing a bit of momentum. They get a home game this weekend to try and snap out of it. They are facing a Bournemouth side who are right there level on 13 points alongside them in the top seven. It should be an even contest. Read our Watford v Bournemouth betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 2nd, 2018 at 8:23 p.m.)
Watford have just slipped out of form with only the one point in their last three games played. So their bright start to the season is in danger of fading away. They are W3 L1 at home this season, their winning streak snapped with a defeat against Manchester United in their last home fixture. In each of the wins that they have secured at Vicarage Road this season, the Hornets have scored exactly two goals. In the correct score market for this one a Watford 2-1 option is at 17/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 4:26 pm).
The Hornets have only the one clean sheet under their belt after all this season so that does look to be a pretty decent option for Watford v Bournemouth betting tips. Watford have scored six of their seven home goals this season in the second half of matches. So the halftime draw does make some sense here. We are looking at the halftime draw at 5/4 odds as well* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 4:26 pm) so that’s a great price. Each of their last three games at Vicarage Road have ended over 2.5 goals so there’s another trend.
The Cherries are right there alongside Watford on points now after taking a late home win over Crystal Palace On Monday. They are flying along at her Vitality in great form, but it hasn’t quite been as convincing from them out on the road. The Cherries are just W1 L2 from their away games this season and they have failed to score in their last two. Those were defeated at Chelsea and Burnley. They have conceded a total of seven goals in their three away games this season so they are vulnerable at the back.
But they do carry an attacking threat and both teams to score is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 4:26 pm). They have been pretty sharp in finishing their chances when they have come their way. Surprisingly though they have only those two goals away from home. They have had so many players in good form like Ryan Fraser, Callum Wilson and Josh King that you do kind of expect them to hit the back of the net. Five of their matches this season have all produced at least three goals. There could be plenty of excitement in this.
Last season Watford took four points from their meetings with Bournemouth which included a tie at Vicarage Road. Three of the last four games between them have actually ended in a 2-2 draw and the Hornets have scored exactly two goals in each of the four games in hat sequence. In the six previous Premier League meetings, five of them have been drawn with Watford getting a win in the other one.
We are going to throw the form book out and back Watford to get a win in this one. They have done pretty well at home this season and they are facing a Bournemouth side who tend to give away plenty of goals. Home win.
