Betting tips and match preview | Premier League
Bournemouth welcome Watford to the Vitality in another round of Premier League fixtures, with this the first of the 3pm kick-offs.
Eddie Howe’s side come into this match on the back of another comprehensive defeat, losing against struggling Hull City.
Junior Stanislas (3) opened the scoring for the Cherries, giving them the perfect start with an early goal, after poor defending from Harry Maguire.
Abel Hernandez continued his excellent return from injury with a goal just before the break (32) ensuring Hull went in at 1-1.
Hernandez scored his second of the match in the 50th minute, with Tyrone Mings completing a forgettable match with an own goal (62).
Eddie Howe will be enormously frustrated, with his side flattering to deceive against sides they should be beating.
Cherries In Poor Form
Bournemouth come into this match in poor recent form, with just one win in their last six matches.
Four defeats against Hull, Millwall, Chelsea and Southampton came either side of the six-goal thriller against Arsenal and the win against Swansea.
Bournemouth will be looking for far greater levels of consistency, they will also be looking to draw on large periods of the Arsenal performance.
The Cherries come into the match in 11th place in the Premier League, they have collected 25 points from their 21 games so far.
Despite recent mixed results, Bournemouth go into this match as the favourites, with Watford in poor form.
They will be looking to register their eighth win of the season, in turn avoiding a fifth defeat in seven matches.
Bournemouth will be looking to make it a first win in four matches against Watford, with the last three matches drawn.
Hornets In Poor Form
Walter Mazzarri’s men come into the match on the back of a 0-0 draw at home against Middlesbrough.
In what was ultimately a drab affair, the main headline was the tributes to Graham Taylor, who passed away during the week.
It was an emotional day for the Hornets, with former manager Graham Taylor largely responsible for the excellent state the club finds itself in today.
That failed to inspire Watford though, who have been in a poor run of form and the pressure is on Mazzarri.
Hornets Looking To Move On
Watford’s only win in their last six matches came against Burton Albion, in the third round of the FA Cup.
Their Premier League form has been poor in the last six, they have lost three and drawn two with some poor performances.
Watford have now tightened up at the back, they have failed to concede in their last two matches.
Watford come into this match as the underdogs, with home advantage and Watford’s poor form informing those odds.
This will be a tough fixture for Walter Mazzarri’s side, with his side struggling for form and Bournemouth in a poor run themselves.
The Hornets will be looking to continue their overall record against Bournemouth, with five wins, five draws and two defeats in twelve matches.
Both teams are 4/5 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Bournemouth are Callum Wilson at 4/1 with Benik Afobe at 9/2. For Watford, Troy Deeney is at 15/2 with Stefano Okaka and Odion Ighalo at 8/1.
The last time that these two sides met they drew 2-2 and the odds of the same result are 14/1.
