Bournemouth vs Burnley Prediction
Bournemouth finally managed to calm down their faithful last week, after the hosts took down Chelsea on the road with a 1-0 scorecard. The win was their first in six games, and also just their fifth of the season, as a whole.
With no more than nineteen points in the bag, the Cherries are currently sitting fourteenth on the table, two points shy of their counterparts Burnley.
On the other hand, the visiting contingent successfully brought a three-match losing streak of their own to a halt, in their most recent matchup with Newcastle at home. Chris Wood scored the goal of the game in that clash, thereby ensuring that all three points went in their favor.
The guests have now picked up the win in half of their past six games. Be that as it may, only one of those victories came away from the comforts of their home.
On the road, Burnley have admitted defeat in three of their previous four fixtures. Furthermore, the away side have tasted success just once in their last eight outings.
In sharp contrast, the Cherries have been at the losing end just three times at home this season. That too, against sides that are currently dwelling in the top half of the ladder.
Given the home advantage at hand, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Bournemouth in this one. However, the hosts have settled for no more than a point in three of their previous eight games here.
With Burnley sharing the spoils thrice already on the road as well, a Draw no Bet is sizing up to be the safest punt this weekend.
In addition, the hosts have been a nervous bunch in the defensive third, even on home soil. Miserably, they have conceded five goals from their past two games here alone.
Considering that all of their previous four h2h meetings here have also witnessed both teams get their names on the scoresheet, count on neither side to make it out of the ninety minutes with a clean sheet intact on Saturday.
