Bournemouth Preview – Can the Cherries take important home win?

The Cherries are striving to find the kind of form that were in earlier this season.

They suffered a 2-1 loss out at QPR on the weekend, which was their fifth loss in their last eight league games.

But they are still in the mix for the playoffs but they face a tough game on Wednesday night.

In the match outright for football betting, a win for Bournemouth is at 23/20* (odds recorded 23:04 GMT February 22nd, 2021).

Bournemouth will be looking to secure their third straight home win, having beaten Birmingham and Rotherham in their last two.

It has been a strong campaign from them at home overall, having earned a W9 D3 L3 record.

So far in this campaign Bournemouth have played two home games against current top-seven sides and have won those two.

A big three points out of this one would see them put some nice distance between themselves and one of the teams immediately behind them challenge for a top-six finish.

Earlier this season when Bournemouth went to South Wales they picked up a point in a 1-1 draw against Cardiff.

Our betting prediction:
1-1 correct score

Bet at William Hill

(odds recorded 23:04 GMT February 22nd, 2021)


There has been a good defensive output from Bournemouth on home soil this season. They have conceded at under a goal per game.

They have earned a clean sheet in 47% of home games.

So that may suggest that this is going to be another low-scoring encounter between the two teams.

Under 2.5 goals is at 4/5* (odds recorded 23:04 GMT February 22nd, 2021).

Six of Bournemouth’s nine home wins in this campaign have been by a 1-goal margin.

Only three teams currently hold a better home record than that of Bournemouth’s in the Championship.


Cardiff Preview – Can the Bluebirds keep winning streak going?

Cardiff have hit a very strong run of form having won their last five Championships fixtures.

On the weekend they eased to a 4-0 home win over Preston which has really put them in the race for a top-six finish.

In that run of five wins, Cardiff have taken three clean sheets and they have also hit the back of the net at least twice.

The Bluebirds are a huge threat here but they are the 12/5 underdogs, which looks as if they are being underestimated at bit* (odds recorded 23:04 GMT February 22nd, 2021).

They have gone undefeated in their last seven league fixtures, home and away combined.

The overall away record from Cardiff this season in the Championship is W7 D4 L4.

It is a three-match winning streak on the road that the Bluebirds are currently on, scoring exactly two goals in each of those victories.

They do appear to be in the kind of form to roll up and pull off a surprise.

They have played two fixtures away from home this season against teams currently in the top eight with them.

Cardiff are W1 L1 from those two fixtures, the victory happening at Vicarage Road against Watford who have had a brilliant season at home.
