Bournemouth Preview – Three points for the in-form Cherries

After suffering a gut-wrenching relegation from the Premier League last term, Bournemouth have made a steady start to life back in the Championship. No team have lost fewer matches, while the Cherries have picked up five wins and five draws.

After a 1-0 loss at Sheffield Wednesday, Jason Tindall’s team struck back with an impressive victory over Birmingham City at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium last time out. David Brooks netted twice after Arnaut Groeneveld’s opener in the 3-1 away triumph.

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

(odds taken 1114 GMT, Friday 28 August)

Bournemouth are unbeaten in six league and cup matches at the Vitality this season. However, since a 1-0 win over Norwich City in September, two of their last three at home have ended in draws. Can Bournemouth get back to winning ways on home soil this Saturday?

Reading Preview – Leaders to crash to a fourth successive reverse?

Veljko Paunovic hit the ground running at the Madejski Stadium, guiding Reading to seven wins and a draw from their first eight Championship games. The Royals started with four wins before drawing with Middlesbrough, going on to win their next three.

However, since a 4-2 victory at Blackburn Rovers in October, Reading have lost three Championship games on the bounce. Their last two have ended in heavy 3-0 home losses to Preston North End and Stoke City. Nonetheless, Paunovic’s men are still top of the Championship table after 11 games.

Reading will be desperate to avoid a fourth straight league loss on Saturday. The Royals have been woeful in their last two, though, conceding six and scoring none. The bookies have the away win priced at 4/1.


Bournemouth vs Reading Betting Advice

This will be the first meeting between these two clubs since they met in the Championship in April 2015. In the 2014-15 season, Bournemouth did the double over the Royals, winning 3-0 at the Vitality and 1-0 at the Madejski.


Key Facts – Bournemouth vs Reading Betting Tip

  • These two clubs have not met for over five years
  • Reading are top but have lost each of their last three in the Championship
  • Bournemouth have lost just one of their opening 11 league games this term


In recent matches, Reading have looked a shadow of the team that romped to the top of the league. Unfortunately for Paunovic and his troops, we can see them crashing to a fourth defeat on the spin at the weekend.

Bournemouth have kept clean sheets in their last two home wins, and Tindall’s troops should keep Reading at bay in this one. With that in mind, take a punt on the hosts to win to nil at 7/4.

Brooks – who scored the winner for Wales in their recent UEFA Nations League win over Republic of Ireland – netted a brace in the Cherries’ 3-1 victory at Birmingham before the international break. Back the 23-year-old to score anytime on Saturday at 11/5.
