Bournemouth Prediction

Bournemouth will be hoping that 2019 can bring them renewed success on the field following a miserable end of 2018 which saw the hosts lose eight of their last 10 matches of the year, with just two wins over Huddersfield Town and Brighton to show for their efforts.

Despite this poor run of form, The Cherries still occupy 12th place and hold a useful and valuable 11 points cushion over third from bottom club Burnley thanks to Bournemouth’s solid start to the season which resulted in 6 wins from their first 10 league matches of the season.

Bournemouth also still possess a reasonable home record of 5-2-3 16/14 which includes three understandable and forgivable defeats to Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool. The hosts are usually pretty reliable at home though ands they’ve scored in 8 of their 10 matches at the Vitality Stadium to date.

Midfielders Brooks (5 goals) and Fraser (4 goals) along with forwards Wilson (8 goals) and King (5 goals) have produced the bulk of Bournemouth’s goals so far this season.

Watford Prediction

Watford have climbed up to 9th place in the Premier League thanks to a recent upturn in results for the London club which have seen The Hornets suffer just one defeat from their last five matches which was a 2-1 loss at home to Chelsea.

Recent wins over Cardiff City and West Ham along with draws against Everton and Newcastle United have seen Watford pick up valuable points against the teams around them in the division, and this upcoming fixture at Bournemouth represents another opportunity for Watford to add to their points tally on the south coast on Wednesday night.

Watford possess an inconsistent looking away record of 3-3-3 11/10 but they come into this clash on the back of taking four points from their last two road trips, and they’ll be confident they can get something from this encounter.

Watford have scored in 6 of their 9 away matches to date and possess the likes of Peyrera (6 goals) along with Doucoure, Deulofeu and Deeney (3 goals apiece).

Betting Tips Verdict

Bournemouth’s decent home form along with Watford’s recent upturn in results should ensure both teams score in this tussle.
