Crystal Palace are on a nice bit of form at the moment with three victories in their last five games. All three of those wins were out on the road. It has been a disappointing season from them on home soil, so Bournemouth who are one point beneath them, in the table may fancy their chances of signing off for the season on a positive note. Read our Crystal Palace v Bournemouth betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 17/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 6th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)
The Eagles have put together some nice form at the end of the season. They are currently on a three-match undefeated streak of form, winning two of those. This season on home soil Palace have taken a W4 D5 L9 record and have won only one of their last six at Selhurst Park (D2 L3). The Eagles have managed only the 14 home goals this season at an average of 0.78 which is so strong as they have scored more than double that away from home. Palace have averaged just over a goal per game at Selhurst Park.
In total, they have banked a clean sheet in 39% of their home games too, with only 28% of games at Selhurst Park going over 2.5 goals. Palace have scored 64% of their home goals in the second period of games and have conceded 75% of home goals after the half time break as well. Palace have opened the scoring in just six of their home games this season. The Eagles have done well to lift themselves towards the middle of the table after some struggles this season. They start the weekend in twelfth place and could stay there or go one place either way. It’s not going to be a stressful afternoon for the Eagles on home soil.
Bournemouth earned a 2-1 home win over Palace in October
The head to head is even at one win each and three draws in the last five meetings
The Cherries have lost just one of their last nine against the Eagles
The last two meetings at Selhurst Park have been drawn
The Cherries collected a 1-0 home win over Spurs last weekend, which was a great result for them. It took them until about the last minute to break Tottenham who were playing with nine men though. It has been a season riddled with inconsistencies by the Cherries who have posted a W5 D1 L12 record on their top-flight travels this season. Nine of their away defeats for the season have been against the current top nine interestingly enough. In total the Cherries have averaged 1.3 goals per away game this season in the EPL.
67% of Bournemouth’s away games have made it over 2.5 goals and part of the reason for that is they have been poor in defence. The Cherries have conceded at an average of 2.2 goals per road fixture. There has been a clean sheet in 22% of road games for them. Of the losses that they have taken on their travels this season, 11 of the 12 have been by at least a two-goal margin. The Cherries have also been losing at the half time break in 10 of their 18 road fixtures for the season. Bournemouth have opened the scoring in just four away games this season.
This is such a tough game to read because the two are probably going to be pretty evenly matched in this Selhurst Park clash. The one thing that does look certain is that it could be a high-scoring game so simply going over 2.5 goals looks like a decent place to start for betting on this game.

The Cherries have nothing at stake in this, their final home game of the season. Will they be able to sign off in style against a top-four team? Spurs have their Champions League semi-final second leg to worry about next week. But they aren’t over the finish line yet in terms of trying to secure a top-four finish. Read our Bournemouth v Tottenham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 2nd, 2019 at 7:34 p.m.)
The Cherries were involved in a thrilling 3-3 draw in a south coast duel against Southampton last weekend. It has left Bournemouth with only the one win in their last six league games now, that being a 5-0 away win at Brighton. Their home form has taken a dive lately with them having lost three of their last four at the Vitality (D1). They had been pretty strong on home soil until really February this year came along. They have been far from a reliable side in defence.
Their overall home record is W7 D5 L6 and the Cherries have averaged 1.6 goals per home game. 61% of their home fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals, Bournemouth having taken ac elan sheet in 28% of home games. They are without a clean sheet in any of their last five on home soil though. Even though they have had their difficulties this season, particularly with away form, they are four points better off than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign. Bournemouth have opened the scoring in ten of their home fixtures.
The Cherries were hammered 5-0 at Spurs earlier this season
Tottenham have won their last four against Bournemouth
Bournemouth are winless in seven previous EPL games against Spurs (D1 L6)
Spurs have scored at least three goals in six of their eight previous games against the Cherries
Tottenham have had a pretty tough time of things with just three wins in their last ten league outings. To be fair those three wins have been in their last five league games. However, they were all at home. Spurs are on a five-match losing streak on their top-flight travels at the moment. Their midweek loss at home against Ajax in the first leg of their Champions League semi-finals makes this even more difficult. They will be highly focused on next week’s return leg in Amsterdam. So they have to balance that with this game as they still have work to do to try and reach the top four in the EPL.
Spurs start the weekend in third place but can be caught still but the three teams immediately behind them. So there is still some pressure on. A point in this one would guarantee Spurs a top-four finish. Under the circumstances, they can be forgiven for just playing for that. Tottenham are W11 D0 L7 on the road this season, and it’s just heir recent road form which has hit rock bottom. Spurs have averaged 1.8 goals per away game this season but have scored just the three goals in their last five road fixtures. They failed to score in two of those five away games. Spurs have scored the opening goal in ten away games this season but have conceded 73% of their away goals in the second half of fixtures.
There has to be a decent chance for Bournemouth to avoid defeat in this one. Spurs look as if they have run out of steam a bit and with their attention still on that Champions League semi-final, they may not get the win. At the end of the day, all they need is a point. Bournemouth – Draw Double Chance.

The Saints earned a point in midweek at Watford to leave them six points clear of the drop zone with three to play. They should be safe from here. They go into a south coast battle against Bournemouth on the weekend. The Cherries have suffered three losses in their last four games and will see the Saints move to within a point of them if they lose at St Marys. Read our Southampton v Bournemouth betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 25th, 2019 at 7:36 p.m.)
The Saints battled to a draw out at Watford in midweek, which followed a disappointing defeat out at Newcastle last weekend. The Saints have won four of their last eight games played (D1 L3) and they do have some home form behind them. Southampton have won three of their last four at St Marys, which includes very good successes against Tottenham and Wolves. Southampton have won just five home games this season and four of those have been earned since mid-January. Overall the Saints are at W5 D6 L6 this season on home soil in the EPL.
They have posted an average of 1.35 goals per home game this season and 71% of all league games at St Mary’s have gone over 2.5 goals. In total, the Saints have managed a clean sheet in only 18% of home games. Both teams have scored in 76% of matches at St Marys this season. Southampton are currently on a twelve match scoring streak at home and they haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last three there. Southampton have opened the scoring in 10 of 17 home games. Only four teams have a worse home record than they have, but a win here and they should be safe for the season.
There was a 0-0 draw between the two earlier this season
Three of the last four meetings have been drawn
Southampton are undefeated in their last five against the Cherries
There was a 2-1 win last season in the corresponding fixture
The Cherries remain a problematic side for punters. They have lost three of their last four games now and the most recent one of those was at home against Fulham. So you never know what you are getting from them. Their away record this season is not very good as they have lost 12 of their 17 games away from home (W5). Three of those five away wins have been against sides who are currently in the bottom four and they were all by a margin of at least two goals. Southampton are fifth from bottom.
Bournemouth have lost 10 of their last 12 away games in the top flight, which is terrible. But they have won two of their last three which were successes out at Huddersfield and Brighton. In total Bournemouth have averaged 1.2 goals per away game, but they have conceded at over two goals per away game. 65% of their road fixtures have ended up over 2.5 goals this season, even though both teams have scored in just 29% of their away games. All but one of Bournemouth’s away wins this season have been with a clean sheet. Of their 12 away defeats this season, eleven of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. The Cherries have been losing at the break in 10 of 17 away games.
Bournemouth are so unpredictable that the value option looks to be on Southampton to come up with a win. The Saints have done alright at home recently and they do have a bit of head to head from going against the Cherries. The Saints can roll out a good win in the match. Home win.
25th April 2019 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
You just never know what you are going to get from the Cherries at the moment. They powered their way to a big win last weekend snapping a three-match winless streak. Fulham snapped a long losing streak last weekend with a success too. Nothing at stake here for either. Read our Bournemouth v Fulham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 16th, 2019 at 11:57 p.m.)
The Cherries banked a big 5-0 home win over Brighton in their last league game. That is just the one of two wins in their last ten Premier League games though, so they have been totally up and down and all over the place recently. They have gone without a win in any of their last four on home soil in the top flight though with a D2 L2 record there. That has left their home record at W7 D5 L5 this season in the Premier League where they have averaged 1.7 goals per game. Of their home losses, four of the five have been against the Big Six in the division.
65% of games at the Vitality Stadium have gone over 2.5 goals this season and while Bournemouth have taken a clean sheet in 29% of home fixtures, they have none in their last four at home. Five of their seven home wins record this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. The Cherries have opened the scoring in 10 of their 17 away games and in terms of goalscoring output, only the Big Six have produced more goals in the Premier League than Bournemouth have done. It all depends on if their defence decides to show up or not.
Bournemouth were 3-0 winners over Fulham earlier this season
The Cherries are on a three-match winning streak against the Cottagers
Fulham are winless in their last three visits to Bournemouth
The Cherries have scored ten goals in their last three against Fulham
The Cottagers produced a shock 2-0 home win over Everton last weekend. That snapped a nine-match losing streak of form that they had been on, which has already seen them suffer relegation. The Cottagers still have not won an away game this season though, having picked up a W0 D2 L15 record on their travels. Part of the problem has been putting the ball in the back of the net, which they have done just the eleven times on the road.
The other part of the problem is their defence which has kept just one clean sheet all term. 65% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Of their fifteen away losses this season only two of them have been by a one-goal margin. They have not earned ac elan sheet in any of their last seven on the road this season and Fulham have been losing at the halftime break in 12 of their 17 road fixtures. They do have the worst away record in his season’s top flight with just those two points and they have conceded more goals than any other team.
Fulham had a good weekend last time out, and they may get their chances in this one. Bournemouth are unpredictable but they do have pretty good scoring form at home this season. It may be enough to get them three points.

Both Brighton and Bournemouth have lost their last two league games. Brighton go just the five points above the drop zone, but with a game or two in hand over everyone beneath them. But they need to start winning again. The Cherries picked up a poor home defeat last weekend against Burnley. Read our Brighton v Bournemouth betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 9th, 2019 at 11:32 p.m.)
The Seagulls have lost back to back league games now after a defeat at Chelsea last time out. That has left them in a bit of jeopardy still near the foot of the table. They start the weekend five points from safety. Brighton’s home record this season stands at W6 D4 L5 but they have won only one of their last five played at the Amex. The lone win in that sequence happened against bottom side Huddersfield. Three of Brighton’s last four home successes this season have been by a 1-0 scoreline.
Five of the six home successes that Brighton have taken this season have been by a one-goal margin only. Brighton have scored 17 goals at home during this campaign, with 40% of their home fixtures ending under 2.5 goals. Brighton have claimed a clean sheet in 33% of their home games and they have earned three in their last six on home soil. There are only four teams currently in the top flight who have scored fewer league goals than Brighton have done. Brighton have been leading at the halftime break in only four home games this season.
Bournemouth took a 2-0 home win over Brighton in December
Brighton then won at Bournemouth in the FA Cup third round
Bournemouth have won five of the last seven against Brighton (D1 L1)
Brighton have won just one of their last eleven against the Cherries in all competitions
Bournemouth had a disappointing result on home soil last weekend, suffering a 1-3 defeat against Burnley. That leaves Bournemouth with back-to-back league defeats currently and they have won only one of their last nine Premier League fixtures. They have not enjoyed much success out on the road this season and they have lost 10 of their last 11 away games. The only time that they did not lose in that sequence of the game away games they collected a 2-0 victory at bottom side Huddersfield.
Bournemouth have averaged under a goal per game away from home this season. But 62% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals and that is because the Cherries have conceded an average of 2.3 goals against per away game. They have conceded at least two goals in all but one of their last 11 league games. Of the 12 defeats that Bournemouth have taken on the road this season only one of them have been by a one-goal margin. Bournemouth have been losing at the halftime break in 10 of their 16 away games. Only the bottom two of Huddersfield and Fulham have a worse defensive records them Bournemouth this season in the Premier League.
Bournemouth have been in such a mess on the road this season, that the Seagulls look a decent option to get a home win here. They need a big result to push them towards safety and there’s a good chance for them here.

The Cherries had another misfire last time out as they were beaten away at Leicester. They look like a side who need to regroup. They aren’t in bad shape at home though. They will be facing a Burnley side who are trying to keep their heads above water near the drop zone. The Clarets got an important home win on the weekend. Read our Bournemouth v Burnley betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 2nd, 2019 at 4:15 p.m.)
The Cherries suffered a 2-0 loss at Leicester in their last fixture which saw their already poor away form for the season get worse. They are W7 D5 L4 on home soil though, so that’s been a positive for them. They are without a win in their last three there though (D2 L1) the loss happening against Manchester City. Bournemouth have returned 28 goals this season at home, a decent average of 1.75 goals per home game. 62% of their home games have gone over the 2.5 goal line. The Cherries have totalled a clean sheet in 31% of home games.
Bournemouth are without a clean sheet in three at home at the moment. They have only failed to score in one of their last seven at the Vitality, which was in the game against Man City. Five of their seven home successes this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. Bournemouth have conceded 62% of their home goals in the second half of matches and they have opened the scoring in 9 of 16. They are struggling overall defensively as just four teams have conceded more goals than they have in this season’s top flight.
Burnley posted a 4-0 home win over Bournemouth in September
The Cherries have won just two of their last eleven against the Clarets
Burnley won 2-1 at the Vitality Stadium last season
Both teams have scored in all but one of the last seven meetings
Burnley breathed a sigh of relief on the weekend after a 2-0 home win over Wolves. That left them five points clear of the drop zone at the end of the weekend. Burnley had lost their four league games prior to that so were really on a poor slump. They do have some improving to do on the road though because they have lost back to back away games currently against Newcastle and then Liverpool. The Clarets have now managed to take three away wins all season as well (D4 L9). They have struggled defensively as they average 1.9 goals per game against them this term.
Burnley have scored at an average of a goal per away game. They are without a clean sheet in any of their last four on the road, conceding at least two goals in both of their most recent away games. Just once have they found themselves ahead at the halftime break in a road game. The Clearest have produced 62% of their away goals in the second half of matches and have conceded 61% of away goals after the half time break as well. Fulham are the only side to have conceded more league goals than the Clarets in the top flight this term.
This should be a good open game as neither are really all that great at the back. So it could be an entertaining battle. Of the two though, Bournemouth have a lot more to offer going forward, so they look the more likely of the winners.

Leicester have picked up back to back league wins now to give themselves a nice boost. Can they keep their form going as they play host to Bournemouth on the weekend? The Cherries have been having a rough time of things on their travels this term. Read our Leicester v Bournemouth betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 24th, 2019 at 10:18 p.m.)
Leicester were reduced to 10 men early in their last league fixture which was at Turf Moor against Burnley. Despite losing Harry Maguire, Leicester still managed to pick up a 2-1 win. That moves them to back to back wins in the Premier League currently, having won three of their last four (L1). The Foxes have won back to back league games at the King Power as well and their overall record there for the season is W6 D2 L7. Leicester have scored 19 goals at home in their campaign this season, while they have conceded that exact same amount.
Leicester have earned a clean sheet in only 20% of their home games this term, and both teams have scored in 60% of all their home games. The Foxes have failed to get away with a clean sheet from any of their last ten fixtures played. Of the six home victories which they have picked up, four of them have been by a two-goal margin. Leicester have not blanked a visitor in any of their last eight games at the King Power. The Foxes have scored in each of their last three at home. Each of their last five league games, home and away, have gone over 2.5 goals.
The Cherries produced a 4-2 win over Leicester this season
Bournemouth are undefeated in their last seven against the Foxes
Five of the last seven meetings have been drawn
The three previous EPL meetings at the King Power ended in a draw
Bournemouth had to scrap for a 2-2 home draw against Newcastle last time out in the top flight. That’s four points from their last two games now. The Cherries have only had a taste of success in one of their last seven games, home and away in the Premier League. In their last road game, they got a win, scraping past Huddersfield 1-0. That was an important moment for Bournemouth though as it snapped a nine-match losing away streak that they were on. Bournemouth have returned 15 away goals this season while they have conceded at an average of 2.3 goals per away game.
The Cherries have taken a clean sheet in 20% of away games, while two-thirds of their road games have gone over 2.5 goals. Away from home, Bournemouth have taken a W4 D0 L11 record in the top flight. Ten of those eleven away defeats were by a margin of at least two goals as well. Bournemouth have been trialling at the half time break in 9 of their road games this season. Surprisingly the Cherries have only opened the scoring in only three away fixtures all season.

There have been a few more positives for Leicester in their recent form and that 10-man win at Burnley would have done them the power of good. The Foxes should be able to come up with something at home against such a poor away side as Bournemouth are. Home win & both teams to score.

Bournemouth earned a 2-0 win at Huddersfield last weekend. That was a relief for them after having taken just one point from their previous five. The Cherries have posted a W7 D4 L4 record on home soil this season and they have only lost one of their last six there. The loss in that sequence was in their last home game, a 1-0 reverse against Manchester City. Bournemouth have averaged 1.7 goals per home game as well this season with 60% of fixtures at the Vitality going over 2.5 goals.
In total, they have taken a clean sheet in a third of home games and have been trialling at the break only once on home soil this term. The blank against Manchester City snapped a five-match scoring streak of form that they were on at home. The Cherries have conceded 63% of their home goals in the second half of fixtures. Bournemouth have opened the scoring in nine of their fifteen home fixtures.
Newcastle took a 2-1 home win over the Cherries earlier this season
Four of the last five meetings have produced an away win
Things are even at two wins each and a draw in the last five meetings
Half of the last six meetings have ended in a draw
The Magpies have won three of their last five league games, suffering just two losses in their last eight. So they have eased relegation concerns well. Their away form is poor though with just a W2 D6 L6 return for the season. They have taken just the one point from their last four games away from home and are winless in six on their travels. Just 36% of their road game shave gone over 2.5 goals.
Newcastle’s lack of scoring has played a part in that as they magpies have just 10 road goals all season. Eight of those ten goals have been scored in the first half of matches. There has be no clean sheet for Newcastle in six away games. They have been level at half time in nine of their away games. To their credit, only five teams have a better defensive record in the league than they have.
Newcastle can make a nuisance of themselves, but we fancy the Cherries to get over the line. They have done alright at home this season and should be able to grab the victory, likely by a one-goal margin.

After their 1-0 home win over Wolves, Huddersfield had their bubble burst when they went to Brighton last weekend and lost by that very same scoreline. That was their 21st defeat from their 29 league games played this season. The home form of Huddersfield this season in the top flight reads W2 L2 L11. Across those 15 home games played, Huddersfield have only managed the seven goals scored. They have conceded at an average of 1.5 goals per home game.
The win over Wolves in their last home game snapped a seven match losing streak that they were on at the John Smith’s Stadium. Just 40% of their league home games have made it over 2.5 goals. Home and away, Huddersfield have scored just the two goals in their last eight. If they were to pull off a win in this game, while Fulham were to lose against Leicester, the Terriers would actually move off the bottom of the table on goal difference.
Bournemouth were 2-1 winners at home over the Terriers earlier this season
Huddersfield won this corresponding fixture 4-1 last season
Six of the last seven meetings have actually gone over 2.5 goals
There have been 15 goals in the last three meetings at Huddersfield
Bournemouth’s inconsistencies must be really frustrating for boss Eddie Howe. The Cherries have taken just one point from their last five league outings, that point coming in a home draw against Wolves towards the end of February. It has been a season to forget for Bournemouth out on their top-flight travels as they are just W3 L11 away from home this season. They have racked up nine consecutive away defeats on their travels currently.
There has been a lack of goals from them as they have produced just two goals in their last seven away games. In total Bournemouth have produced 13 away goals in their 14 games. The problem has been their defence which has conceded at an average of 2.5 goals per away game. 71% of Bournemouth away games this season have ended up over 2.5 goals. The Cherries have just the two clean sheets away from home this season. It really has been poor stuff from them and Bournemouth have also been losing at the halftime break in nine of their road fixtures.
Bournemouth have a good chance at snapping themselves out of their poor form. They may only get the job done by the one goal margin though, bearing in mind Huddersfield’s recent run of results.

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 27th, 2019 at 6:06 p.m.)
Taking a look at Bournemouth’s home form this season, they could actually make life a little bit tricky for Manchester City in this game. The Cherries are W7 D4 L3 on home soil in the top flight this season and they are currently running on an unbeaten streak of five at the Vitality Stadium. Their last home win recorded was a big 4-0 success over Chelsea at the end of January.
Each of their last three home successes in the Premier League have been with a clean sheet. In all seven of their home wins this season Bournemouth have scored at least two goals in each. Bournemouth are averaging 1.8 goals per home game this season and 64% of their home fixtures have ended up over 2.5 goals.
They are currently on a five-match scoring streak of form at home and just once they have been trailing at the halftime break at the Vitality. It really is their away form which has been letting them down this season. However looking specifically at this game, Bournemouth have lost their three home games against sides currently in the top five, conceding at least two goals in each of those defeats.
Manchester City took a 3-1 victory at home over Bournemouth in December
Manchester City have won all seven previous EPL meetings against Bournemouth
The Citizens have scored at least two goals in each of their seven EPL games against the Cherries
Bournemouth have scored in just two of their last six against the Citizens
Manchester City hold an away record of W8 D2 L3 this season in the Premier League. All three of the away defeats which they have suffered on their travels have happened since the start of December. They are actually W3 L3 in their last six on the road. But breaking it down into more current form, the Citizens have won three of their last four away from the Etihad (L1). Manchester City have averaged 1.9 goals per away game this season. Their defence has conceded just nine goals in their 13 road fixtures this season.
Just about half of their away games only have made it over 2.5 goals. Manchester City have taken a clean sheet in two of their last three on their travels. In total, they have earned a clean sheet in 54% of their away games in the top flight. Manchester City have scored in each of their last five away from home and haven’t been involved in an away draw in nine. Manchester City have been leading at the halftime break in nine of their 13 away games, having scored 64% of their road goals in the first period of fixtures.

Bournemouth may well make a nuisance of themselves in this one and there worth backing to get on the scoresheet at least. But still, Manchester City should be able to expose the weaknesses in Bournemouth defence. Away win and both teams to score.
