Bournemouth Preview – Can Cherries bounce back?

Bournemouth will head into this Saturday’s lunchtime clash against fellow play-off hopefuls, Watford, having suffered back-to-back defeats against QPR and Cardiff City which has resulted in Bournemouth dropping out of the top six in the Championship.

Results overall have nose-dived for The Cherries who have managed to record just two wins out of their last 10 matches which came in the shape of wins over Birmingham City and Rotherham United, but the six defeats within this period have taken their toll.

Nevertheless, Bournemouth still hold a reasonable record at home of 9-3-4 27/16 but they’re up against a Watford side who are pushing for automatic promotion; the goals market maybe best here as nine of Bournemouth’s 16 home matches have seen under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Watford Preview – Can Watford win five on trot?

Watford have won their last four matches on the trot in the Championship and it’s this sort of form which has once again thrust The Hornets into contention for automatic promotion following wins against Bristol City, Preston NE, Derby County and Blackburn Rovers respectively.

The visitors have hit form at just about the right time as they’ve suffered just one defeat from their last 10 matches overall which was a 2-1 loss to QPR but they’re unbeaten in their last five matches away from home.

Watford’s away record though doesn’t look entirely convincing as it stands at 5-7-4 11/11 while there’s also been a distinct lack of goals on the road for the visitors as 13 of Watford’s 16 away matches have also resulted in under 2.5 goals.
