Betting Tips & Predictions

Eddie Howe will know his Bournemouth side aren’t safe from relegation yet

A good run of form has seen both teams move away from a rather tight relegation battle, however because of how tight it is at the bottom of the Premier League, your place in the table can change week by week.

Bournemouth are on a better run of the two and find themselves three points off of Newcastle. A 2-1 Bournemouth win is priced at 8/1, but a 2-0 win is better at 9/1.

As for Newcastle, a 2-0 win with Kenedy to score first can get you a price of 45/1. If they can repeat their heroics against Manchester United, another 1-0 win is 17/2.

If it’s first goal scorers you’re after, then Josh King to open the scoring is priced at 11/2, whilst he’s 19/10 to score at any time. For Newcastle, Islam Slimani is 6/1 to grab his first Newcastle goal to open the scoring and Matt Ritchie can double his goal tally for the season if he scores at any time, being priced at 7/2.

Match Summary

1

Look out for:

Jamaal Lascelles has a habit of popping up with goals from set pieces, and he is 7/1 to score at any time.

2

We fancy:

A solid 1-1 draw could be in order, with Steve Cook to score at any time again, priced at 125/1.

3

It’s a long shot, but:

Bournemouth were on the end of a 4-1 thrashing last time out and they’re actually priced at 40/1 to win this weekend by the same scoreline.
