The Eagles have managed only the 14 home goals this season at an average of 0.78. That is actually less than half of the amount which they have scored away from home.

Last weekend Bournemouth pulled off a surprise 1-0 win over Tottenham. That was a fantastic result for the Cherries, even though they only got their winner right at the death against Spurs who were playing with nine men. Inconsistencies have plagued Bournemouth all season long and they have had a tough campaign away from home. Overall this season Bournemouth have produced a W5 D1 L12 record on their top-flight travels this season. Nine of their away defeats for the season have been against the current top nine interestingly enough. In total the Cherries have averaged 1.3 goals per away game this season in the EPL.

Almost 70% of Bournemouth’s Premier League away games this season have finished over 2.5 goals. Part of that high percentage is because Bournemouth have been very poor defensively. Away from home this season the Cherries have conceded at an average of 2.2 goals per game. In total Bournemouth have collected a clean sheet in 22% of away games and all but one of their 12 away defeats have been by a margin of at least two goals.

Crystal Palace v Bournemouth Predictions

Draw: This just has the look of being one of those games which is a flip of the coin really. Both have their strengths and weaknesses and both are pretty unpredictable on their day. So there may just be worth having a look in the total goals at over 2.5 for this fixture.
