Bournemouth Preview – Cherries to move on to 13 points?

After suffering relegation from the Premier League under Eddie Howe last term, Bournemouth have no plans to stay in the Championship for long. Promotion back the top tier will be high on their wish list this season.

The Cherries have made an excellent start, as they have taken ten points from a possible 12 so far. The Dorset club kicked off their campaign with a 3-2 home win over Blackburn Rovers, which was followed up with a 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough. Since then, the Cherries have sealed back-to-back league wins over Norwich City and Coventry City.

Our betting prediction:
Bournemouth to win to nil
15/8

Before the international break, Bournemouth were too good for Championship new boys Coventry at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium, winning 3-1 on the road. Dan Gosling netted two after Jefferson Lerma had opened the scoring in Birmingham.

Tindall’s troops will be hoping to keep the pressure on the top two with a home victory on Saturday. In truth, they should be too strong on their own patch for their opponents.

Queens Park Rangers Preview – Can Warburton’s men spring a surprise in Dorset?

Queens Park Rangers have been one of the most inconsistent teams in the Championship in recent years. They are either hot or cold, capable of winning at the top side one week and losing to the bottom team the next.

Rangers have started their 2020-21 league campaign with one win, two draws and one defeat. After kicking off with a 2-0 home victory over Nottingham Forest, the Londoners have taken just two points from the last nine on offer. They have drawn their last two, with both matches against Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday ending in 1-1 stalemates.

This will undoubtedly be a tough test for QPR. The Hoops had a mixed bag of results on the road in the Championship last term, winning seven, losing 11 and drawing five. This season, Warburton’s boys have picked up one point from six on offer away from home. Still, can the London side cause an upset at the Vitality on Saturday?

Bournemouth have made an excellent start, and the Cherries should make home advantage count and see off QPR with ease on Saturday. We are backing the home team to win -2, which is available at the generous price of 5/1.

Gosling is not renowned for his goalscoring prowess, but the 30-year-old netted two in Bournemouth’s 3-1 victory over Coventry last time out. The midfielder is priced at 4/1 to notch anytime in this one.
