What Trueform says for Bournemouth vs Burnley
Bournemouth were hammered 4-0 by Burnley at Turf Moor back in September and should be fired up to seek revenge at Vitality Stadium.
The Cherries have only been beaten by teams in the top six when on home turf in the Premier League this season, registering six wins and five draws in 11 other fixtures.
This is the kind of contest they do well in and 11/10 for Eddie Howe’s side to prevail is our opening Bournemouth vs Burnley prediction.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth’s poor away record continued when they went down 2-0 at Leicester on Saturday, which was a 10th loss in their last 11 road trips, having won at Huddersfield prior to the international break.
Howe was disappointed his side were unable to build on that rare victory on their travels, stating: “We hoped that was a turning point for us on the road.
“It’s been hard, as we haven’t got the points we wanted or been as solid defensively as we’d have liked, so there’s lots for us to work on and improve.
“From our perspective, we are looking at next week now and trying to focus on the Burnley game.”
Getting back to Vitality Stadium will be a welcome boost, though, as Bournemouth have scored more than once here 10 times in the league this term.
Looking at the Bournemouth vs Burnley odds, we reckon 19/20 for the Cherries to net at least twice again is a percentage pick.
Last Bournemouth line-up: Begovic, Ake, Daniels, Clyne, Mepham, Gosling, Lerma, Brooks, Fraser, Wilson, King.
Bournemouth could again be without defender Adam Smith, who continues to be assessed on a thigh strain, but winger Junior Stanislas and midfielder Dan Gosling should both be available.
Defender Steve Cook (groin) remains out, along with long-term absentees Andrew Surman (calf), Simon Francis and Lewis Cook (both knee).
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley enhanced their hopes of staying up by beating Wolves 2-0 in Lancashire, ending a run of four consecutive defeats.
Teenage starlet Dwight McNeil played a pivotal role, as it was his free-kick which led to a Conor Coady own-goal inside two minutes and he made sure of the points with a fine strike in the 77th minute.
“It’s his first half a season really and he’s played very well,” said manager Sean Dyche of the winger.
“When you’re young like him, fearless in thinking, in tough situations and pulling out things that count in games; that shows the talent, mentality and strength he has.
“He will continue to grow and mature and progress, because he’s some player for a 19-year-old.”
With Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes adding a physical threat up front, the Clarets always look capable of grabbing a goal.
However, we’re still sticking with the hosts to oblige 2-1 at 33/4 to finish off our Bournemouth vs Burnley betting tips.
Last Burnley line-up: Heaton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Bardsley, Cork, Hendrick, Westwood, Barnes, Wood, McNeil.
Peter Crouch will miss Burnley’s trip after undergoing appendix surgery, while winger Aaron Lennon (knee) and midfielder Steven Defour (calf) are still sidelined.
