Bournemouth v Brighton Betting Tips

Bournemouth have not produced the fluidity that they had about them last season and are just struggling at the moment. They have lost all four of their league games this term, conceding at an average of two per game. Their attack has not clicked with just the one goal scored so far. At home, they failed to beat a Watford side in a 0-0 draw and lost in that dramatic game against Manchester City. So they need to find a little something extra, but with a lack of goals from both of these this season, under 2.5 goals at bet365 in this one is a price of 8/11 which is naturally going to have some appeal. In the bet356 correct score market, the shortest priced option is the 1-1 draw which fetches a price of 11/2. The last time that these two met was in the 2014/15 Championship with Bournemouth winning both of their meetings against the Seagulls. The Cherries are unbeaten in their last six against Brighton in a W3 D3 record against them.

Bournemouth have won their last four at home against newly promoted sides and last season on home soil, they only lost three games and won seven of their 11 games against sides who finished beneath them. Bournemouth to win to nil at bet365 is a price of 13/5 and there is a good trend there because seven of Brighton’s last nine losses have been to nil. Brighton gave themselves a great boost last weekend with an excellent 3-1 home victory over West Brom. That makes it four points from their last two games now, so a definite swing in the right direction from them. But they have failed to score in their two away games this season, one of them against 10-man Watford. Overall they are W1 D1 L2 for the season and out on the road, their only point from two games came in a 0-0 draw at Watford. Pascal Gross who hit a brace in the win over WestBrom is at 7/2 in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market. Heading up the market are Bournemouth’s Jermain Defoe at 6/4 and Joshua King at 15/8.

Bournemouth v Brighton Predictions

Bournemouth to win: Of the two, it will be the Cherries who get our nod to go on and take the win in this one. Brighton have not scored out on the road and the fortunes of the Cherries simply have to turn around sooner or later and carry more of a scoring threat than the Seagulls do.
