The Terriers had to battle through an FA Cup replay in midweek which could leave them a little short for this important league game. Huddersfield have slipped into the relegation zone as the defeats are stacking up for them. Bournemouth, on the other hand, have strung together a great run of form to climb their way to safety in the top half of the table.
Bournemouth 11/8, Huddersfield 2/1, Draw 11/5* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 7:21 p.m.)
It is a five-match losing streak that the Terriers find themselves on at the moment in the top flight and during that run of matches, they have scored only the one goal. They are winless in eight games now in the Premier League (D3 L5) and they are really looking like relegation candidates at the moment. Nothing has been happening for them right now and they don’t have any home form either to rely upon either. They have produced a W4 D4 L5 record on home soil this term, but Huddersfield are winless in five at the John Smith’s Stadium now (D2 L3) and have netted just one goal in their last three league games there. The Terriers have recorded only eleven goals on home soil in the Premier League this season and they have shipped a total of 1.5 per game on average at the John Smiths. So they are going to be vulnerable as they haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last five league games. Their last two at home for them have gone over 2.5 goals and at Bet365 over 2.5 goals is at 5/4 odds. There is an increasing air of desperation about Huddersfield at the moment and a trend to watch for is that 73% of the goals they have netted at home have come in the first half of matches.
Bournemouth are really up and running well at the moment now as they have gone unbeaten in their last seven games now in the top flight, winning four of those. So it’s all positives for them now and they are looking for their third straight win too having beaten Chelsea and Stoke to climb ever closer to safety. They are on a three-match undefeated streak of league form too on the road with a W1 D2 record and during that run of away games, they produced that stunning 3-0 win at Chelsea. That leaves the Cherries W3 D4 L6 overall away from home this season and they have been leading at half time just once on their travels so far, so a half-time draw at bet365 is going to offer some value. The Cherries are currently on a seven-match scoring streak of form but have averaged less than a goal away from home this term. They have found the back of the net in each of their last three away games. So there has been a massive improvement from them the longer the season has gone on and Callum Wilson has been in nice form up front for them so is worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market. They will fancy their chances of bagging another good three points in this one.
Bournemouth were impressive 4-0 winners over the Terriers just back in November and they are unbeaten in four against Huddersfield now, winning three of them. The Cherries have scored at least two goals in each of their last three wins over Huddersfield too and four of the last five meetings have gone over 2.5 goals. Bournemouth have won two of their last three visits to Huddersfield as well in league competition (L1).
Bournemouth are the ones to back in this one as they are just running in nice form and the Terriers just are not producing anything of note at the moment. It may be worth having a flutter on both teams to score though, but for the away win to happen regardless.

The Cherries have produced some solid home from recently with back to back wins over Everton and Arsenal having been produced at the Vitality. Another home win would give them a serious boost away from relegation concerns. Stoke have looked a bit more promising under Paul Lambert, at least showing more energy and grit since he took over. Their away form though still doesn’t stack up to much.
Bournemouth even money, Draw 5/2, Stoke 5/2* (Betting Odds taken on January 30th, 2018 at 8:59 p.m.)
The Cherries have improved to a three-match undefeated streak of form on home soil in the Premier League, winning their last two there. They were solid wins too, taking back to back 2-1 victories over Everton and then Arsenal. A Bournemouth 2-1 option in the Paddy Power correct score market is a price of 8/1* (betting odds taken January 31st at 5:04 p.m.). Overall now, Bournemouth’s home form is W4 D3 L5 for the season and they have been scoring much more freely recently, but while they have netted in each of their last three at the Vitality, they have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last six there. So both teams to score in the fixture looks a pretty viable proposition for the weekend. 67% of their home games in the topflight have gone over 2.5 goals so that’s a good option to look at as well going into this fixture and 62% of their goals on home soil have all been after the break in matches. Bournemouth have actually only opened the scoring in four home fixtures this season.
Stoke took a 2-0 home win over Huddersfield last weekend and for the first time this season they actually showed a bit of energy and life about that. That’s a credit to new boss Paul Lambert, but they still have a lot of work to do in order to get free of relegation concerns. Stoke’s away form has been abysmal this season, having won only one away fixture all season, which was against Watford back at the end of October last year. They are D2 L5 in their last seven away from the Bet365 Stadium and their defence has taken a battering. They have conceded at least three goals in three of their last five road games while they have failed to score in three of their last four away from home. It’s been a miserable season for them and they have only scored ten goals on the road this term while they have conceded an average of 2.5 goals per game which is horrid. They have failed to take a clean sheet in any of their last seven road fixture in the top flight. Both teams to score at Paddy Power is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken January 31st at 4:47 p.m.). They have to start digging out points on the road to ease their relegation concerns, but even games like this they look vulnerable in.
The Cherries got a good 2-1 win out at Stoke back in October and that should give them confidence for the reverse fixture. Bournemouth are unbeaten in their last three Premier League games against the Potters now (W2 D1) so have that going for them. On home soil from their two previous hosting of Stroke in the Premier League, Bournemouth are D1 L1. Both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings.
The Cherries may be able to find enough to get the win on the board in this one and ease themselves closer to safety. They have been scoring freely enough and have shown plenty of battle at the Vitality lately. They can rattle the visitors.

Chelsea have had a crazily busy January but they are just about ticking over. They managed to snap a five-match winless streak with a win at Brighton last time out in the league and they are favourites get themselves another three points here. Bournemouth are not doing badly at all at the moment though with a five-match undefeated streak, but they have struggled for away win. Chelsea are 2/7 at BetVictor to get the three points, with the draw at 21/4 and Bournemouth at 11/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 28th, 2018 at 6:18 p.m.)
The Blues made progress in the FA Cup on the weekend at the expense of Newcastle and they jump back into action at Stamford Bridge in midweek as they host Bournemouth in the Premier League. The Blues have a great W8 D2 L2 record on home soil at the moment and that is an eight-match undefeated streak of league form that they are on at the Bridge right now (W7 D1). So it’s fantastic from them and they have taken a clean sheet in each of their last four on home soil and they have collected six in their last seven league games home and away. Not too shoddy at all and Chelsea to win to nil at BetVictor is naturally going to have some appeal in this game. Chelsea have only conceded seven home goals in total this season at the Bridge. Going forward they have averaged 1.75 goals per game at home in the league but they were frustrated into a 0-0 draw by Leicester in their last home fixture. So far this season Chelsea have won all of their home games against sides from the bottom half of the table and again, the Blues were defensively sound with four clean sheets in those five. Chelsea have only scored more than one goal in four of their last six home games and a Chelsea to win by a one-goal margin because of that will have some big appeal as well as Chelsea 1-0 correct score.
The Cherries have lost at Spurs and Manchester United this season by only a 1-0 scoreline so could stick in there and battle in midweek. The Cherries have not managed to collect a clean sheet in any of their last eleven games now and from their four visits to current top six sides this season, they haven’t managed to net a single goal. The Cherries have been level at the break in four of their last five games and therefore a half-time draw should have some appeal here because Chelsea are not particularly looking a powerful attacking unit at the moment. Bournemouth are unbeaten in their last five games in the league (W2 D3) but the two wins in that sequence both happened at home. They are without a win in their last six road games (D4 L2) and they have conceded at least two goals in four of their last five away from the Vitality. So they are battling well at the moment but are just falling short on the road and both teams not to score at BetVictor is a decent option. Bournemouth actually do have the look of being competitive, but they have only scored nine away goals at the end of the day and they are going up against a very stern and stubborn defence.
The Blues have won three of their last four home games against Bournemouth (L1) and they have beaten the Cherries twice this season already, once out on the road in the league and once at home in the EFL Cup. Overall Chelsea are 8-2 up with no drawn match from their ten previous clashes. The Blues have three clean sheets in their five previous home games against the Cherries. Both of Bournemouth’s wins over Chelsea were by a 1-0 scoreline.
Chelsea are favourites and it’s hard to see them going out and losing this one. They will get a challenge from Bournemouth though who are in resilient form at the moment, but the Cherries don’t have winning away form and may ultimately fall. A Chelsea to win by a one-goal margin has appeal.
29th January 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Hammers have given themselves renewed hope of staying up with a four-match unbeaten streak of form going in the Premier League. That has seen them sail up towards the middle of the table. They will be taking on a Bournemouth side though who have also offered up some much better resilience recently with a four-match unbeaten streak of their own going. West Ham are even money for the win at Paddy Power with the draw at 5/2 and Bournemouth at 11/2* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.)
The Hammers are now unbeaten in their last four league games (W2 D2) and they have lost just one of their last eight in the top flight. Their defence has taken a bit of beating though and David Moyes will be wondering just what is going on. They are without a clean sheet now in five and they have shipped nine goals in that sequence. But after a bit of a dry spell, they are scoring well with them having netted at least two goals in five of their last six league games and hammered Huddersfield 4-1 last weekend. They have decent options now in the Paddy Power anytime goalscorer market in Marko Arnautovic and Andy Carroll, as well as Chicharito and they, are looking more of an attacking threat at least. Still, both teams to score at Paddy Power looks a pretty solid option for the game at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 9:09 p.m.). The Hammers have only managed the four wins this season on home soil but they have lost just one of their last five there so it suggests that they are going to be strong enough to hold their own and avoid defeat at the very least.
The Cherries are unbeaten in four like West Ham so are likely to put up a fight. There is a lot of similarities between these two at the moment because the Cherries can’t buy a clean sheet at the moment and their scoring output has been improving all the time. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last four games played and landed a big three points in toppling Arsenal last weekend. It has been a while since they landed an away win though as they have failed to win any of their last five away from the Vitality Stadium. So that counts against them a bit and overall their away form reads just W2 D3 L6 for the season on their travels. They have conceded at least two goals in three of their last four road games. Callum Wilson’s recent return to scoring form has been a huge boost for them and he is a 15/8 anytime goalscorer option at Paddy Power* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 9:09 p.m.). While the Cherries have improved their scoring recently, they have totalled just the eight goals away from home this season, failing to score in 55% of their road fixtures.
There was a thrilling 3-3 draw between the two of them at the Vitality Stadium earlier in the season. Four of the last five between them have seen at least four goals in the game. Things are evenly set between two of them with two wins each and a draw in their five previous Premier League meetings. Bournemouth have scored at least three goals in three of their last five against the Irons.
Neither defence has been very good recently so there should be goals in this one. However, it is hard to pick a winner out of the two and therefore the draw should have appeal in the match outright. Neither would be unhappy with a share of the spoils in this one as it keeps them both ticking over well. The 1-1 draw in the correct score market looks about right.
17th January 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Cherries are unbeaten in their last two home games in the top flight now and they have to keep scraping out the points because they are in that cluster of teams in the bottom half of the table where it’s really tight. Arsenal have been poor on the road this season but they have now gone unbeaten in their last five road games and will expect something out of this. Bournemouth are 7/2 underdogs, with the draw at 16/5 and Arsenal in at 4/6 odds-on* (Betting Odds taken from January 11th, 2018 at 4:11 am)
The Cherries are in a scrap above the relegation zone but they have shown some character and fight recently with a W1 D2 record on the board. While they have remained unbeaten they will probably be a little disappointed that they did not get more out of that easy run of games in which they faced West Ham, Everton and Brighton. The win in the sequence came at home against Everton. So the Cherries have lost just one of their last four on home soil in the top flight (W1 D2 L1) so it’s not been a bad return. Overall they are only W3 D3 L5 at the Vitality and clean sheets have been hard to come by. They haven’t kept a home clean sheet since November 18th when they beat Huddersfield and have conceded three goals in their five home games since (at least two in four of those five). They are a spirited side and they work hard but are just lacking a touch of quality. 64% of their home games have seen at least three goals so over 2.5 goals at Paddy Power is well worth considering at 1/2* (Betting Odds taken from January 11th, 2018 at 6.53 pm). Bournemouth are without a clean sheet in nine games home and away and have shipped at least one goal in 82% of their home games. As a positive, they have scored at least two goals in each of their last three games themselves.
The Gunners have not had a great season on the road, but they have at least managed to remain undefeated in their last five road games (W2 D3). So that’s a positive from them but in that sequence, they have dropped points at Southampton, West Ham and West Brom, teams struggling in the bottom third of the table. Overall home and away the Gunners are unbeaten in seven now but they have conceded in each of their last four and in that sequence, they have conceded eight goals. Both teams to score at Paddy Power is a quote of 8/15 odds* (Betting Odds taken from January 11th, 2018 at 6.53 pm) and that looks likely to happen. The Gunners have conceded more than they have scored away from the Emirates this season so they are going to be a little bit vulnerable and they have injuries stacking up and they had an extra game in midweek, their EFL Cup semi-final first leg against Chelsea. Arsenal have scored 77% of their away goals this season in the second half of matches and 11 of their 16 away goals conceded have been after the break in games. Alexandre Lacazette, who looks short of confidence is the anytime goalscorer outright favourite.
Well, there is not a lot of history in the head to head to look back on here. This will be just the seventh league game between. From those previous encounters, Arsenal are W5 D1 and they took a comfortable 3-0 home win over the Cherries earlier this season. The Gunners have scored exactly three goals in each of their last three games against the Cherries and at least two in all of them.
The draw isn’t totally unappealing in this one. Arsenal are just struggling with injuries at bit at the moment and the Cherries know how to dig in and scrap, especially on home soil and they know they need to fight. After a busy week for the Gunners, the Cherries could get a precious point for themselves out of this. Draw.
13th January 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Seagulls need to continue with some positives on home soil to keep themselves afloat. They have to recognise that this is a good opportunity at getting some survival points on the board as they welcome Bournemouth. The Cherries have been floundering on the road and may have trouble breaking down the Seagulls. Brighton are 6/5 to get the win, with the draw at 11/5 and Bournemouth are at 12/5.
Brighton have collected just one win in their last seven home league games, but also during that sequence they have lost just once at the Amex and that was against Liverpool. They ground out a 1-0 home win over Watford just before Christmas in their most recent home game and that is three clean sheets in their last four at home now for the Seagulls. Brighton to win to nil at Coral is worth considering. Up in the correct score market, the 0-0 draw and the 1-0 home win are both going to be running as strong short-priced options. Just 30% of Brighton’s home games in the top flight this season have gone over 2.5 goals. The Seagulls have netted ten goals and have conceded twelve so far at home in the top flight and five of those goals conceded came in that loss against Liverpool recently. So they have taken a clean sheet in 40% of their home games. The half time draw may well have good appeal as the Seagulls have been level at the break in six of their ten home fixtures.
The Cherries badly need to pick up some points out on the road to give themselves a lift. They go to the Amex after back to back away defeats against Manchester United and then Manchester City. They failed to score in either of those defeats and they are winless in four out on the road now, failing to score in three of those. Away from home, they are W2 D2 L6 for the season and they have tallied just the six goals away from home. They have conceded at a rate of an average of 1.5 goals per game away from the Vitality. Overall home and away Bournemouth have not managed a clean sheet in any of their last seven games and the Cherries have conceded at least two in each of their last three. So they are going to be a little vulnerable here. 67% of the goals that they have scored this season away from home have been in the first half of matches. Four of their away defeats have been by a one goal margin. Both teams not to score at Coral is going to be a decent option to consider for the clash down on the south coast. Callum Wilson is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option for them.
Bournemouth have won two meetings already with the Seagulls this season, taking home wins over them in the league and the EFL Cup. They are on a four match winning streak against Brighton in all competitions and are unbeate in eight against them. Things are even in the last four between them at Brighton though with a win each and two draws.
There is a good chance for Brighton here and they could be a bit of value on home soil to get the win on the board. This is likely going to be a low scoring affair and a1-0 correct score on the home side looks decent enough value.
31st December 2017 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Bournemouth are in the Premier League relegation zone at the moment and need a boost before the new year. They are on a long winless streak which is hurting them at the moment. Everton have been misfiring in front of goal without Wayne Rooney recently, and they are still in search of improving their away form. Bournemouth are 7/5 to take the win, with Everton at 15/8 and the draw at 23/10.
So the Cherries just can’t get that elusive win that they so badly need. They are winless now in eight league games (D4 L4) but they have been playing some spirited stuff along the way, even though they aren’t getting their rewards. They played out a dramatic 3-3 draw with West Ham on Boxing Day and that leaves them without a win in any of their last four at the Vitality. Overall Bournemouth are W2 D3 L5 at home in the league and they are eight points worse off than they were at this stage last season. Under 2.5 goals at Betfair is probably a decent shout for this one. The Cherries have opened the scoring in just three of their home games this season and have been leading at the break in just two of them. A half time draw should be a good proposition. The goals against West Ham snapped a three-match sequence by them without a goal but they haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last seven. Callum Wilson is the top scorer for them this season with four goals and all four of those have been at home.
It is back to back 0-0 draws for Everton so far over the Christmas period, playing out a tie at home against Chelsea and then at West Brom on Boxing Day. The absence of Wayne Rooney is no coincidence perhaps to their lack of scoring. The Toffees are just W1 D5 L4 for the season out on the road in the top flight and only once this season on their travels have they managed more than one goal in a match. The Toffees in total have returned only the seven goals on the road this season and therefore both teams not to score at Betfair could be a decent option. Everton have managed to go unbeaten in their last three away from home in the Premier League, including a tough game across at Liverpool. So they could be value to avoid defeat and in the correct score market, a 0-0 is in at a short 8/1 option with the 1-1 draw at 11/2. As a positive though, they have kept five clean sheets in their last seven Premier League games, despite riding their luck against West Brom on Boxing Day.
Everton bagged a 2-1 home win over the Cherries earlier in the season and that is back to back Premier league wins they have taken against them now. Everton are up in the five previous Premier League meetings, having gone W3 D1 L1 but their only loss did happen on the south coast against the Cherries last season. Overall in the head to head in all competitions, Everton are W7 D1 L1 against Bournemouth. Both teams have scored three of the last four clashes.
Bournemouth may be able to sneak one out here. Everton have gone goal shy again and the Cherries will be happy with their goals on Boxing Day at least, snapping their scoreless streak. They really should have had more in the match as well. Maybe they can use that as inspiration to drive on and get three points.
28th December 2017 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Cherries really need to find a bit of home form to keep their season afloat. They have only won one their last six on home soil and it has been a really disappointing return from them at the Vitality. West Ham have bolstered their defence and may fancy their chances of scrapping out something in this fixture. The Cherries are 13/10 to take the win with Coral, with the Hammers going at 2/1 and the draw is at 23/10.
The Cherries will be looking to snap a three match winless streak on home soil when they face up to West Ham on Boxing Day. They have taken just the one point from their last three at the Vitality, losing against Burnley and Liverpool in that sequence. The Cherries are only W2 D2 L5 at home this season in the top flight and haven’t been able to land any kind of positive consistency. Goals have been hard to come by for them as well with just the nine netted in their nine home games. They have just the two clean sheets on home soil as well and they haven’t managed one in any of their last three at the Vitality Stadium. Defensively they haven’t been terrible really and this has the look of going under 2.5 goals.
The Hammers will be looking for further improvement under David Moyes. The Hammers got their first away win of the season in their last away fixture, which was out at Stoke, beating the Potters 3-0. That leaves West Ham with a W1 D3 L6 record out on their travels this season and W1 L3 in their last four. But can they build on that positive from their win Stoke? Marko Arnautovic is a good anytime goalscorer option for them at the moment. West Ham have averaged under a goal per game this season away from home and they have failed to score in five of their road games so far. 67% of their goals shipped on the road have come in the second half of matches. But they won’t be facing a potent Bournemouth attack in this one and could hang in there for at least a point.
The Cherries took a win in this fixture last season and from the four previous Premier League meetings, things are even with two wins each. Three of those four meetings have gone over 2.5 goals as well. The Cherries are W1 D2 L1 in four previous home games against the Hammers.
The draw may have appeal in this one. The Hammers have been doing much better, particularly at the back and can hold their own on the south coast. Bournemouth may just not have enough in them going forward to bag three points though.
24th December 2017 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Citizens go marching on and they will be heavily backed to get another win under their belt on the weekend as they play host to the out-of-sorts Bournemouth. The Citizens impressed last weekend with a thumping 4-1 victory over Tottenham. Bournemouth will have a tough job on their hands here as they are lacking the goals which will likely see them put up any kind of challenge in this game. Man City are 1/10 odds on to take the three points, with the draw at 8/1 and the Cherries are at a massive 22/1 price.
It is really hard to imagine the Citizen losing this game when you look at the stats. Manchester City have rattled off a W8 D1 record at home this season and are on an eight match winning streak at the Etihad after pummeling Tottenham there last weekend. City have scored at least two goals in each of their last eight home games. Overall they average 3.5 goals per game at home this season which is staggering and defensively they have been sound as well with just the seven goals conceded in nine. Manchester City to win to nil at Coral has to be a top bet for the weekend really. 89% of City’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals, 56% have gone over 3.55 and a whopping 44% of them have gone over 4.5 goals. That’s how brilliant they have been going forward. 72% of their home goals have come in the second half of matches and Raheem Sterling is now top scorer for them with 11, with Sergio Aguero one behind the England man. Aguero is the 9/4 first goalscorer favourite with Sterling at 7/2. You have to be considering margins in his one and a Man City 3-0 correct score at Coral is at 13/2.
The Cherries may struggle to get a real challenge going in this one. They are winless in their last six league games now (D3 L3) but they have had a little bit of form going on the road. They have gone W2 D2 L1 in their last five away games, the only defeat in that sequence came in a narrow 1-0 loss at Old Trafford in their last road game. The Cherries have failed to take a clean sheet in any of their last five games played now and were destroyed by Liverpool last weekend in a 4-0 loss at the Vitality. The Cherries have mustered up only the six away goals all season but four of their five losses out on the road have only been by a one goal margin. You would imagine that City can better that though. This is such a tough game for them and Bournemouth have Jermain Defoe who is the only player to have scored more than one away goal this season. You look in the both teams to score market and both teams NOT to score at Coral is at 4/6 odds on and that sums up the chances of Bournemouth in this one. Given the form that Manchester City have produced, it could be a long afternoon for the visitors.
City edged out a 2-1 win earlier in the season against the Cherries and that extended their winning streak to five on the trot from five previous Premier League games against Bournemouth. Three of those wins have been with a clean sheet in tow as well and the Citizens have scored at least two goals in each of those wins over Bournemouth as well. Across all competitions, Man City hold a W9 D2 L0 record against the Cherries.
Manchester City are likely going to extend their winning streak in this one. It would be a huge surprise if they didn’t. It may just be all about the margin of victory for the Citizens in this one and there is going to be an appeal at 7/2 on them to win by a three goal margin.

The Cherries almost got themselves a good point at Old Trafford in midweek and although they lost the game the performance can give them a boost. They will be looking for something out of this one to avoid going back to back losses. Liverpool misfired in the week despite dominating West Brom at Anfield, they just couldn’t get themselves on the board and had to settle for a 0-0 draw and dropped points. Liverpool are 1/2 odds on to win this one with the draw at 15/4 and Bournemouth at 6/1.
The Cherries probably deserved a point at Old Trafford in midweek, but they lost 1-0 against a really lacklustre Manchester United. That extended their winless streak in the Premier League to five matches (D3 L2) and they are just searching for that next win. They have gone W2 D2 L4 on home soil this season and they have had a mixed W1 D1 L1 in their last three there. They have been improving lately but they are still lacking a little bit of a punch in the final third of the pitch. Still, there is probably going to be value in both teams to score at William Hill in this one even though the Cherries are only averaging just over a goal per game at home this season. The half time draw is big value as the Cherries have only conceded two first half goals this season, leaving 78% of the goals that they have conceded at the Vitality coming in the second half of matches. Bournemouth have Callum Wilson and Jermain Defoe at 9/4 in the anytime goalscorer market. A point out of this, considering their winless streak at the moment, really wouldn’t be a bad return for the Cherries at all.
The Reds are unbeaten in their last eight league games now but have had a couple of back to back frustrating games. After their 1-1 draw against Everton, the Reds hosted West Brom in midweek and despite dominating the game, couldn’t get a goal on the board. They are carrying away form though with a three match winning streak on their travels and they have scored twelve goals on those three wins. Their overall record on the road this season is W4 D2 L2 but as they have shipped a lot of away goals, over 2.5 goals at William Hill is well worth a poke. Liverpool have averaged 2.5 goals per game on their travels this season and 88% of their road games have gone over 2.5 goals. Mohamed Salah is the 10/11 anytime goalscorer favourite for the match with Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Dominic Solanke all 6/5 options. In the William Hill correct score market, a Liverpool 2-1 win is a price of 8/1 while they are 11/1 to win this 3-1. The two losses that Liverpool have suffered this season have both been at top four sides and they have handled themselves pretty well against the rest. They need a pick-me-up after those disappointing home results.
The Cherries won this fixture 4-3 last season in a cracking game before playing out a 2-2 draw at Anfield. So from the four previous Premier League clashes between the two of these, Liverpool are W2 D1 L1 up and there has been one win each between them at the Vitality Stadium. Three of the four previous Premier League games between them have gone over the 2.5 goal line.
Liverpool should have enough in the tank to get a win on the board in this one against the low-scoring Cherries. They weren’t at their clinical best in midweek and will be looking to set the balance straight again and they are value to win this.
