West Bromwich Albion v AFC Bournemouth Betting Tips: Experience to see hosts through

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis welcomes his former team AFC Bournemouth for this Premier League opener. Both of these sides performed quite a way above expectations last season so it will be interesting to see if they can keep them up this time around. Albion finished 10th last season and never looked to be in any kind of trouble. However, this was arguably a disappointing finished as the Black Country side had been pushing at the European spots for the majority of the season before falling away at the end. Everybody knows that Pulis prioritises defensive solidity over attacking…

Leicester City v AFC Bournemouth Betting Tips: Foxes to bounce back on final day

Leicester, who are yet to make a decision on the future of current manager Craig Shakespeare, lost their second consecutive match on Thursday night as they went down 1-6 to Tottenham Hotspur. This looks pretty embarrassing on the face of it but Leicester played their part in an entertaining match and, in the end, Spurs were just too good for them. The fact that the Foxes have conceded an average of four goals per game in their last two shows they have had a pretty appalling time at the back of late. However, it must also be taken into account…

AFC Bournemouth v Burnley Betting Tips: Cherries to regain winning thread on their own patch

Neither of these sides have very much left to play for with both of them seemingly safe in the Premier League for another season. A fantastic achievement for both clubs. Bournemouth have managed to recover from a two-match losing streak to win two and draw one of their last three matches, pushing them up to 11th in the table. The Cherries have been absolutely fantastic going forward this campaign having found the back of the net 52 times in just 36 games – more than Manchester United in 5th and more than anybody else outside the top seven. However, this…

Everton v Bournemouth Betting Tips: Toffees to outclass Cherries at Goodison

Two teams in contrasting form go head-to-head at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon as Everton take on Bournemouth. This match looks very simple on paper – a Bournemouth defeat. The Cherries have now lost five of their last six away games and have won just one of their last eight. Additionally, they also failed to strengthen during the January transfer window whilst on-loan defender Nathan Ake returned to Chelsea. Bournemouth have conceded an incredible amount of goals in their last five matches – 2, 2, 3, 3, 3. Everton are unbeaten since losing to Liverpool in the Merseyside derby on…

Millwall v Bournemouth Betting Tips: Goals expected at The Den

League One Millwall play host to Premier League opposition on Saturday as they host Bournemouth at The Den. The two teams will go head-to-head for a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup. Although they will have to travel to the capital and thus play away from home, Eddie Howe and his Bournemouth side will undoubtedly have been happy with this draw and will know that they’ve been presented with an excellent opportunity to progress in the competition. The Premier League outfit have enjoyed a fairly decent campaign so far and will surely want to continue in such…

Bournemouth v Arsenal Betting Tips: Visitors can get the better of a high-scoring affair

Two of the best sides to watch in the Premier League come head-to-head at the Vitality Stadium in what should be an entertaining match. Bournemouth currently sit inside the top-10 after recovering from successive defeats to record a comfortable 3-0 win away at bottom side Swansea City. They are still some way off the European spots but they will survive easily this year. We all know that Eddie Howe’s men like to attack teams, no matter the opposition, and they are capable of scoring goals. Due to this open style, their defence has been questioned but it now seems that…

This Boxing Day match sees Chelsea, who are looking to stretch their amazing winning run to 12 (which would be a club record), host Bournemouth who’re certainly capable of winning games but cannot find the same consistency as their opponents. Chelsea may not have won their latest match that convincingly against Crystal Palace, but, in actual fact, this is the sign of the perfect team – one that is able to claim victory even when they do not play well. This good pattern not only happened against Palace but also happened in their other two games prior to that against…

AFC Bournemouth v Southampton Betting Tips

One of Sunday’s Premier League matches is a south coast derby between Bournemouth and Southampton. Bournemouth have been a mixed bag recently and have followed up victories with defeats rather than getting any sort of consistent run together. Despite this inconsistent set of results, The Cherries are sitting in the top-ten, albeit on goal difference, and so can be happy with their performance so far. As expected with an attacking side, Eddie Howe’s men do not have too much trouble scoring goals and they have scored in each of their last six Premier League matches. Unfortunately, with such an open…

Sunday’s early Premier League game sees two good footballing sides go head-to-head at the Vitality Stadium as AFC Bournemouth host Liverpool. After remaining unbeaten for almost the whole of October, things have started to go a bit downhill at Bournemouth with The Cherries losing three out of their last four matches. However, boss Eddie Howe will still be relatively pleased that his side sit in a comfortable-looking 12th position. Although they lost last weekend’s match to Arsenal, they actually put in a good enough display to take a point out of the game. The 3-1 scoreline certainly flattered The Gunners…

Arsenal v Bournemouth means we have two of the most exciting teams in the Premier League come head-to-head. Both of these sides prioritise playing beautiful football over anything else so we should see a real spectacle on Sunday afternoon. Some would even say we have a master versus the apprentice scenario with Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe mooted to take over the Arsenal hot-seat when Arsene Wenger vacates it – whenever that may be. Arsene Wenger’s team always look like title-contenders in the early part of the season before fading away sometime after Christmas when the crunch games come. Of course…

Although there is a significant gap between these two sides at the moment, it is important for Bournemouth not to get complacent and make sure they take at least a point in these vital fixtures against relegation rivals. Middlesbrough have been on a wretched run of late and are without a win since late August – although it must be said that most of the sides they have played have been in the top half of the table. However, their 0-0 draw against Arsenal away at the Emirates Stadium was a fantastic result and should give them a great deal…

This weekend’s opening Premier League fixture looks like a tantalising prospect as two teams who are famous for open and expansive football go head-to-head on the south coast. Despite a pretty poor start to the season, Bournemouth have finally found a bit of form and have gone three matches unbeaten, leaving them a very comfortable eleventh in the table. They rounded off the last of that trio of matches by beating newly-promoted Hull City by a convincing 6-1 scoreline. Eddie Howe’s team have an excellent home record having won their last three matches at the Vitality Stadium by an aggregate…

These two have had contrasting starts to the season with Everton flying high in second whilst Bournemouth have just the one win to their name and sit in a precarious 17th position. The Toffees are the favourites for this match and it is easy to see why. Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth lost 4-0 away at Manchester City last time out in the league but, even discounting that forgivable result, it has been a pretty poor start for the Cherries. They have only kept one clean sheet all season and that was at home to West Bromwich Albion – not the most…

These two sides enjoy getting the ball down on the floor and playing so we should be in for an entertaining match-up on Saturday. Manchester City were always going to improve when Pep Guardiola took over the managerial hot seat from Manuel Pellegrini this summer. However, the quick turnaround has been quite astounding and it seems that even Guardiola is somewhat surprised by his team’s good performances. The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager currently has a 100% record across all competitions with his new side. One of these was of course last weekend’s Manchester Derby where they coped without…

This is an important fixture for both sides who have the minimum aim of escaping relegation this season, but, at the same time, will be looking to push up the league. Whoever comes out on top here will not only get the points themselves but will also stop the others picking up anything – vital in these lower table battles. The Cherries are only lifted off the bottom of the table thanks to a superior goal difference compared to bottom club Stoke. They will feel they should have done a lot better last time out against fellow relegation rivals Crystal…

Crystal Palace v AFC Bournemouth Betting Tip

This fixture is somewhat of an early season relegation battle as the Premier League’s bottom two sides go head-to-head at Selhurst Park. Crystal Palace are still yet to score in the Premier League this season and have lacked a goalscorer for a long time, stretching back to the middle of last season. They have tried to rectify that problem by bringing in Belgium international Christian Benteke from Liverpool for a club record £27m fee. The former Aston Villa striker is certainly a proven Premier League goalscorer, however, as Palace defender Damien Delaney said, he is ‘not Messi’ and it is…

Two coastal towns go head-to-head in this League Cup clash. Morecambe have made a flying start in League Two whilst Bournemouth have suffered two defeats, putting them bottom of the Premier League table. The Shrimps have one of the lowest budgets in the Football League yet still sit top of their division after four matches, despite losing their first fixture of the season. They beat Rotherham in a 5-4 thriller in the previous round of the League Cup but this match against Premier League opposition will be a totally different test for them. Jim Bentley is unlikely to change his…

Sunday’s fixture will be a good chance to asses where both of these teams are after making significant movements in the summer transfer window. Eddie Howe has chosen to bring some younger players into the squad as some of the older heads depart. 20-year-old Jordon Ibe arrives for a club record fee of £15m along with his former Liverpool colleague Brad Smith. Lewis Cook has been highly rated in the Championship for a good while now and it will be interesting to see how the 19-year-old adjusts to life in the Premier League after his transfer from Leeds United.

Bournemouth – Chelsea. Mark O’Haire’s prediction (VIDEO)

Since all but assuring Premier League survival, Bournemouth’s performance levels have dropped as they’ve lost three of their last four – only beating already-relegated Aston Villa. Chelsea – beaten by the Cherries under Jose Mourinho earlier this season – have fallen two back-to-back league losses without scoring with the Blues languishing in mid-table. The capital club have managed W6-D1-L0 when taking on the bottom-four this season but a W5-D10-L11 return against the rest of the Premier League is unappealing enough to leave the Match Odds market and look elsewhere. Each of Bournemouth’s last six fixtures have featured Over 2.5 Goals…

Bournemouth – Liverpool. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction

Bournemouth appear to be “on the beach” since securing their top flight status. They gave up seven over two games against Spurs and Manchester City and, sure, they beat Aston Villa away, but that’s not particularly hard to do. Liverpool are hugely buoyed by that Europa League result against Borussia Dortmund but, equally, they have to think of securing their spot in Europe for next year and it’s not that far away. I’d go for Liverpool to win at 2.10 or, to make it more lucrative, Liverpool to win and both teams to score at 4.20. Single: Won Bournemouth - Liverpool…

Tottenham – Bournemouth. Laure James’ prediction

After their European run came to an end during the week, Spurs can now focus solely on the title race. They come up against Eddie Howe’s side, who play a lovely brand of football and are now midtable, and safe. Moreover, they’re also unbeaten away from home in 2016. Spurs have lost once in their last six games, Bournemouth have lost twice, and I think it will prove a challenging and exciting match for both. However, I think Spurs have the slight edge in an attacking game. Both to score and Spurs to win is available with William Hill at…

Robbie Savage: Chelsea played ten games under Guus Hiddink, and in Premier league they’ve not been beaten in six games against United. Rooney is in good form. He scored five goals in five Premier league games. So a good bet is Chelsea to win the game 2:1 and Rooney to score for United. Well, Arsenal-Bournemouth then. Danny Murphy: Well I think that Arsenal are in a push-to-win situation. They haven’t won in four games. They could see themselves in eight points behind Leicester City if Leicester win against Manchester City on Saturday. It’s a huge game for Arsenal and that’s why…

Bournemouth – Manchester United. Laure James’ prediction

Bournemouth have shown guts and skill in equal measure in recent games, playing exciting football and getting important results. Beating Chelsea last week could prove to galvanise faith in Eddie Howe, and belief in his methods. While United are in a stronger position in the league, belief in Louis van Gaal’s philosophy is wavering among fans, following their inglorious Champions League exit. Both the team, and manager Van Gaal, will be under the spotlight, which brings pressure. Why not have a look at Bournemouth Plus One Goal Handicap Bet with odds 4/6 with Ladbrokes?

Bournemouth – Manchester United. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction

It’s a very tough time for Manchester United after a big psychological blow of getting out of the Champions League. And what can Luis van Gaal do now? He should look at positive sides and try to get three points in the Premier League. The key for him is to try to keep getting points and wait for the situation to improve. It makes me think that they will play a little more safe than Bournemouth. Bournemouth by the way were pretty good against Spurs, and pretty good at home all season long. And for that reason I can expect…

Welcome back to Bookmaker Ratings! Chelsea host Bournemouth on Saturday. Bournemouth’s defensive record is jointly the worst in the Premier League, along with Newcastle United, with 30 goals conceded in 14 matches. Nevertheless, the Cherries put three past a strong Everton side in their last game and manager Eddie Howe has them playing a nice brand of football. However I’m not convinced. Chelsea haven’t conceded in their last 3. Ladbrokes are offering a chance to double your stake with both teams to score and Chelsea to win at 2.0 – but my punt’s Chelsea to win 2-0 at 6.0. Single:…
