It’s fair to say that Bournemouth is one of the most inconsistent teams in the division. They only managed 3 draws in the first 16 games, which gives us a clear idea – they either win or lose their games. They do play much better at home than away, where they even managed a 4-3 victory over Liverpool at the beginning of December, after trailing 1-3.
They are coming into this game without some important players like Cook, Stanislas or Callum Wilson, but will be looking for the victory. They aren’t really targeting anything else than a mid-table finish this season, but are a force to be reckoned with at home.
Meanwhile, Southampton is a classic “under” team in the Premier League this season. They are specialists in narrow scorelines, both in the domestic league as well as in Europe, and have a reputation of playing defensive football.
In their next game, they also cannot rely on the services of Austin, Romeu, and Targett, so it’s a fair assumption that they will look to play counter-attacking football. Which they are very good at, by the way.
Bournemouth vs Southampton Betting Tips
We do believe that the home team will score at least once, and an “X” bet is a likely candidate here. We’d even suggest going for the bold correct score bet, towards a 1-1 draw. But if you’re looking for clear betting ideas, just go with Bournemouth to score.
Double Chance – Bournemouth or Draw @ 1.50 or 1/2
Draw with Goals @ 4.35 or 33/10 with 138
