Bournemouth Preview – Parker’s men to extend unbeaten run?

Scott Parker has got off to a flying start at the Vitality Stadium, winning three and drawing one of four league and cup fixtures. Bournemouth kicked off their 2021-22 season with a 5-0 EFL Cup success over MK Dons.

In the Championship, the Cherries have taken seven points from a possible nine and are joint top of the division. Bournemouth drew 2-2 with West Bromwich Albion on the opening weekend. Over the past week, they have sealed back-to-back away wins, winning 2-1 at Nottingham Forest, and 2-0 at Birmingham City.

Our betting prediction:
Bournemouth to be winning at half time & full time

(odds taken 1248 GMT, Friday 20 August)

Bournemouth were one of the pre-season title favourites, with just the three relegated clubs available at shorter odds. The club have made a solid start, and can they add another three points to their tally this weekend?

Blackpool Preview – Can the Tangerines avoid a third straight defeat?

Blackpool have had a tough time on their Championship return so far. The Tangerines picked up a point on the opening weekend, scoring late to draw 1-1 with Bristol City at Ashton Gate. They then thumped Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough 3-0 at home in the first round of the EFL Cup.

Unfortunately for the Seasiders, they have struggled at home over the past seven days. They were outclassed by Cardiff City last weekend, losing 2-0 to the Welsh outfit. Pool then lost 1-0 at home to Coventry City last time out.
