Bournemouth v Manchester United Betting Tips – Premier League 18th April 7.45pm

The Cherries slipped to a defeat at Anfield on the weekend, going down 3-0 against Liverpool. Still, they look comfortable for a middle of the table finish this season which they can be pleased with after their difficult first half of the term. After beating Manchester City, Manchester United turned around on the weekend to lose against bottom side West Brom at home in a really strange result. What’s next for them?

Bournemouth News and Form

Bournemouth slipped to a 3-0 loss at Anfield on the weekend, which actually leaves them with only one league success in their last eight (D4 L3). Their home form isn’t bad at all really though as they have only lost one of their last eight at the Vitality with a W4 D3 L1 sequence so that’s been pretty solid from them. It is worth considering a half-time draw because of a trend and that is that Bournemouth have been level at the break in 10 of their home games this term including their last two. A half-time draw at William Hill is at 6/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 8:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018). Bournemouth are on an eight-match scoring streak at home in the league, netting exactly two in six of their last seven there. They haven’t been tight at the back though as they are without a clean sheet in their last eleven home fixtures which isn’t good. 75% of Bournemouth’s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals which is a pretty high percentage. Overall they have taken a clean sheet in just 12% of their home games. 72% of Bournemouth’s home goals have been in the second half of matches.

Manchester United News and Form

The Red Devils would have been a bit of a banker for punters at home against bottom side West Brom on the weekend, especially having beaten Man City in their previous match. But they just went back into their unadventurous shell and paid the price. It was all very strange. Their away form for the season is W9 D3 L4 and they have won their last two on the road at Crystal Palace and then that epic comeback at the Etihad. United have conceded in each of their last four road games, so both teams to score at William Hill for 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 8:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018) may be worth a flutter. United have averaged 1.75 goals per game on their travels and 61% of their away goals have been after the half time break. Manchester United have actually conceded more goals away from home in the opening 30 minutes of games than they have scored. Romelu Lukaku is the 21/20 anytime goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds taken at 8:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018) at William Hill. It’s hard to know what to expect from them now, the player’s don’t seem to be particularly full of enthusiasm.

Bournemouth v Manchester United Head to Head

Manchester United took a 1-0 win over the visiting Cherries at Old Trafford earlier in the season and that means they are W3 D1 L1 from their previous five Premier League games against the Red Devils. Both teams scored in four of those five meetings and from the previous two at the Vitality, it is one win each with both games going over 2.5 goals.

Bournemouth v Manchester United Predictions

Draw: This is midweek action and it may be worth backing a share of the spoils. Bournemouth aren’t short of spirit, teamwork and energy, things which the Red Devils seem devoid of at times. The Cherries can pick themselves up and get a point out of this.
