Bournemouth Prediction – Can Bournemouth back up Chelsea win?

After losing 5 matches on the trot in the Premier League, not many people would have backed Bournemouth to beat Chelsea away from home at Stamford Bridge last weekend but this was exactly what The Cherries did with a 1-0 win in the nation’s capital to lift Eddie Howe’s side away from immediate danger and up into 14th place.

More importantly, that win against Chelsea has given Bournemouth an important 4-point buffer ahead of this equally important fixture at home against Burnley this Saturday where the south coast side will fancy their chances of posting back-to-back wins in the top flight since mid-September when they beat Everton and south coast rivals, Southampton.

However, just 2 further wins have followed since those back-to-back wins from Bournemouth’s subsequent 11 matches which were gained over Manchester United and Chelsea no less, but The Cherries have also succumbed to 6 defeats within this period too.

An overall home record of 2-3-3 9/12 includes just 1 win out of their last 5 matches so the win markets may be dodgy but 5 of Bournemouth’s 8 home matches have produced 3 goals or more to date.

Burnley Prediction – Can Burnley also record back-to-back?

Burnley are another side that continue to frustrate as they churn out inconsistent results in the Premier League as they head into this south coast trip on the back of a 1-0 home win against Newcastle United following a previous 3-match losing streak.

Previous defeats to Crystal Palace 2-0, Manchester City 4-1 and a heavy 5-0 thrashing to Tottenham had seen Burnley’s league position decline, but an important three points against Newcastle United has helped lift Sean Dyche’s side up into a much more respectable looking 12th place in the top flight.

However, 5 of Burnley’s total of 6 wins so far in this season’s Premier League campaign have been achieved on home turf at Turf Moor while wins on their travels have for the most part eluded The Clarets on the road this term as their away record of 1-3-4 9/16 indicates.

Burnley’s one success on the road this season came in the shape of a 3-0 win at bottom club, Watford, so the win markets look very risky for Burnley here, but with 6 of Burnley’s 8 away matches also resulting in over 2.5 goals, the goals market look good here.


Key-Facts – Bournemouth vs Burnley

  • 5 of Bournemouth’s 8 home matches have produced 3 goals or more to date
  • 6 of Burnley’s 8 away matches have also resulted in over 2.5 goals
  • The previous 6 meetings between these two teams have all resulted over 2.5 goals


Betting Tips Verdict

Both Bournemouth and Burnley will sense they can win this match and an open match could well produce a few goals here at good odds.
