Bournemouth Relegation Odds: 4/7 odds taken 2201 GMT, Tuesday 12 July

After taking over last summer, Scott Parker guided Bournemouth to the Premier League in his first year, finishing runners-up to Fulham in the 2021-22 EFL Championship. The Cherries spent two years in the second tier following top-flight relegation at the end of the 2019-20 season.

Naturally, Bournemouth are one of the favourites for relegation this term. Before a ball has been kicked, the Dorset club are priced at just 4/7 for the drop and 7/4 to finish bottom. To stay up, you can currently get Bournemouth at 5/4.

A tough season no doubt looms for Parker and his troops, but can they prove their doubters wrong and keep themselves up? Check out our in-depth Bournemouth 2022-23 Premier League betting preview, featuring the latest odds and best tips.

2021-22 Review: Cherries secure promotion

With Parker arriving in pre-season, Bournemouth were tipped for promotion at the start of the 2021-22 Championship campaign. They made a stunning start, winning 11 and drawing four of their opening 15 league games. They were finally beaten on matchday 16, losing at home to Preston North End.

The loss to the Lilywhites was the start of a sticky spell for Parker’s men, as they went on to win just one of the following eight. However, they bounced back in style in late 2021 and the beginning of 2022, sealing six wins from eight.

Our betting prediction:
Man City to win the Premier League

Bournemouth finished the season in strong style to make sure of promotion, winning four and drawing four of eight after a 2-0 loss to West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns in early April. Promotion was sealed after a 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the penultimate game, with January signing Kieffer Moore scoring the only goal at the Vitality Stadium.

Bournemouth finished just two points behind champions Fulham, amassing 88 points from 46 games. They won 25, drew 13 and lost eight, scoring 74 and conceding 39.

Our betting prediction:
Chelsea to finish in the top four

Bournemouth Key Facts

  • Bournemouth spent just two years away from the Premier League
  • The Cherries suffered the fewest defeats in the Championship last season
  • The Dorset outfit entered administration and were relegated to the bottom tier in 2008
  • Bournemouth spent five years in the top flight after winning promotion in 2015


Cherries Transfer News: Quiet summer at the Vitality so far

Bournemouth have been pretty quiet in the transfer market when it comes to new signings. Joe Rothwell completed the move to the Vitality Stadium from Blackburn Rovers, while the Cherries also snapped up Ryan Fredericks from West Ham United recently.

A whole host of players have exited the club over the summer, including Robbie Brady and Gary Cahill. Several have been released, while Gavin Kilkenny has joined Stoke City on loan, and Sam Sherring has moved to Northampton Town for an undisclosed fee.

2022-23 Key Fixtures: Champions wait in game two

Bournemouth kick off their season with a home game against Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa on 6th August. They then have the toughest trip of their season when they take on champions Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on matchday two.

Before September comes, Bournemouth will face Man City, Liverpool and Arsenal. They also have a tough end, as the Cherries play Chelsea, Manchester United and Everton in three of their final four matches.

Who Are Their Biggest Challengers: Can the Cherries finish above the dotted line?

After two years away, Bournemouth are back in the top tier of English football. Parker done a terrific job at the Vitality Stadium last year, guiding the Cherries to a second-place finish behind his former club Fulham.

Like any promoted side, Bournemouth will be doing everything in their power to avoid an instant return to the Championship. Naturally, they are one of the favourites to go down, but can Parker keep the Cherries in the Premier League? Who will be their main rivals this season?

Everton Preview: Can Lampard take the Toffees forward?

Everton had a miserable 2021-22 season. They made a strong start under Rafael Benitez, but a woeful run of one win, three draws and 11 defeats from 15 games saw the Merseysiders slip towards the bottom three. Frank Lampard replaced Benitez in January.

Everton had a few more sticky spells before the season concluded, but they survived after a dramatic comeback win over Crystal Palace in their penultimate game. The Toffees will be hoping to be nowhere near the bottom three this time around, but they could be in for another tough season.

Leeds United Preview: Whites to stay away from bottom three?

Leeds United were on their way to relegation last season, and the popular Marcelo Bielsa was sacked in February after a 4-0 hammering by Tottenham Hotspur at Elland Road. Jesse Marsch lost his first two fixtures in charge, but Leeds went on to win three and draw two of the next five.

United survived on the final day after an excellent victory at the Brentford Community Stadium. After finishing ninth in their first year back, the relegation battle was a real shock to the system. Still, Marsch will be looking to stamp his authority at Elland Road, and Leeds will be hoping to finish around mid-table this term.

Aston Villa Preview: Big season ahead for Gerrard?

After a solid season, Gerrard is starting to build something at Villa Park. The boss has made some superb signings, with his legendary status as a player allowing him to attract top players to Villa Park – Philippe Coutinho has arrived from Barcelona on a permanent deal.

Many bookies and pundits alike have tipped Aston Villa for a mid-table finish, but can the Midlands outfit sneak into Europe this season? They should have more than enough to avoid a relegation scrap, but anything is possible in this game.

Brentford Preview: Can the plucky Bees survive again?

Avoiding the drop will be the number one priority for Brentford this season. They may have finished 13th last term, but the Bees will take 17th spot right now if offered. The lack of signings at present may worry the Bees’ supporters, but their squad is strong enough to compete once again.

Brentford could find themselves in a relegation scrap this term, but they proved their doubters wrong last term. Can Thomas Franks’ team stay in the Premier League for a second season running?

Fulham Preview: Championship champions to stay up this time?

Fulham romped their way to the Championship title last term, finishing on 90 points and scoring an incredible 106 goals. The Cottagers have been somewhat of a yoyo club in recent times, suffering two instant relegations back to the second tier. Can they keep themselves up this time around?

Staying up will be the priority, but Fulham will be looking to finish as high as possible this term. They have a top manager in Silva, although they have been quiet in the transfer market so far. It will be very interesting to see how Fulham fare this season.

Nottingham Forest Preview: How will the returning Reds fare?

Nottingham Forest spent two decades away from the Premier League, even spending time in EFL League One. However, they are back in the big time after winning the 2021-22 Championship play-offs. When Steve Cooper arrived at the City Ground in September, Forest were bottom of the Championship table.

The Reds defied the odds last term, and Cooper is already a Nottingham Forest legend after guiding the club back to the Premier League. Of course, the Midlands outfit will want to stay there now and become an established top-flight team. At the time of writing, Cooper’s men are priced at 4/5 to stay up.

Player to Watch Out For in the 2022-23 Season: Can Moore be a wildcard for Parker?

Kieffer Moore had a tough time with Cardiff City in the first half of last season. He then signed for Bournemouth in January while still nursing an injury. However, when Moore was finally fit and ready to play, the Wales international certainly took his chance with both hands.

Moore scored some massive goals at the end of the campaign, netting twice against Swansea City in a 3-3 draw before scoring the goal against Nottingham Forest that took Bournemouth up. The striker also netted in a 1-0 win over Millwall on the final day. He may not be the first name of the team sheet this season, but Moore could be a vital player for Parker.

Our Bournemouth Predictions: Cherries to slip out of top tier

Staying in the Premier League will be an arduous task for Bournemouth, but they survived for five years last time before finally dropping out of the division under the long-serving Eddie Howe. Parker was relegated from the Premier during his spell with Fulham, however.

Bournemouth have not done too much work in the transfer market, which could worry their fans. The top tier in England is getting stronger and stronger each season, and it could be too much to handle for the Dorset club. Unfortunately, we can see the Cherries finishing bottom of the pile (7/4).
