Bournemouth Preview – Will the Cherries pick off the Red Devils?

Bournemouth probably won’t be too unhappy at this draw, being on home soil.

The bookmakers have them at 4/11 in the match outright to get the better of their League Two counterparts* (odds recorded 2311 GMT Sunday, 24th January).

The Cherries though have failed to win any of their last three games (D1 L2) so have just gone off the boil.

In the third round of this season’s FA Cup Bournemouth took a comfortable 4-1 home success over Oldham.

It has been a very good home campaign from the Championship side.

They have only lost two games there all season in a good W8 D4 L2 record at the Vitality.

They have scored at least two goals in five of their last seven home games in all competitions.

So they do have the scoring power in them to come out on top.

But they will, of course, have seen what Crawley did to Premier League side Leeds in the last round.

Our betting prediction:
Bournemouth 2-1 Correct Score

Bet at Paddy Power

(odds recorded 2311 GMT Sunday, 24th January)


There have been over 2.5 goals scored in each of Bournemouth’s last seven FA Cup games.

For FA Cup betting on this fixture, over 2.5 goals is at 7/10* (odds recorded 2311 GMT Sunday, 24th January).

This tie is made all the more interesting because of the dip in Bournemouth’s recent form.

It’s been one goal from them in their three league games played since their FA Cup third-round win.

This could perhaps be a good chance for them to bounce back.


Crawley Preview – Can the Red Devils do it again?

Crawley defied some massive underdog odds to thump Premier League side Leeds 3-0 in the third round.

In their one previous visit to Bournemouth, which was back in the 2012/13 League One campaign, they lost 3-0.

The head to head is one-win each from those two previous meetings from almost a decade ago.

What can they come up with in this one?

In the match outright for this fixture Crawley are 10/1 underdogs* (odds recorded 2311 GMT Sunday, 24th January).

Not helping their cause here is that they have not played a game since that win over Leeds.

So that just makes it a little more difficult for them.

But they are on a three-match winning streak in all competitions.

The Red Devils have gone undefeated in their last ten games as well in all competitions.

Their FA Cup campaign started with a thrilling 6-5 away win at Torquay in the first round proper.

They then followed that up with an away success at AFC Wimbledon.

Crawley are undefeated in their last eight away games in all competitions, winning their last three.

One clear issue that we can see is that Crawley have only taken one clean sheet all season.

So that hints that out on the road against a Championship side, they are likely to ship.

But they played a very bold game against Leeds and will probably fancy their chances of getting on the scoresheet.

We do and therefore a Bournemouth to win & both teams to score option is at 21/10* (odds recorded 2311 GMT Sunday, 24th January).


Bournemouth vs Crawley Betting Advice

We are going to roll with the home win in this FA Cup tie on Tuesday night. Even though the Cherries have seen their form slip, they have home comforts here.

But considering things, Crawley are quite a bold team and we would expect both teams to get on the scoresheet.

Bournemouth to win & Both Teams To Score is the top option for FA Cup betting at 21/10* (odds recorded 2311 GMT Sunday, 24th January).


Key Facts – Bournemouth vs Crawley Betting Tip

  • Bournemouth are winless in three matches (D1 L2)
  • Bournemouth won their one previous home game against Crawley 3-0
  • Crawley beat Premier League side Leeds in the lsat round


We would just side with the visitors getting on the scoresheet because of Bournemouth’s slight dip in form.

So looking for some extended odds a Bournemouth 2-1 correct score is available at 15/2* (odds recorded 2311 GMT Sunday, 24th January).

But the Cherries have had a good output at the Vitality this season and we would expect that to continue with them winning this.
