Fulham vs Bournemouth
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 27th October 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).
It has to be said that the Premier League fixture schedule has been kind to Bournemouth this far and they are dreaming of another three points when they travel to a hapless Fulham this Saturday.
Bournemouth sit at 6th on the log, just 6 short of league leaders Manchester City after bagging 5 wins and 2 draws from their 9 matches so far, while losing 2.
The team managed by Eddie Howe has been lethal in front of goal as well, netting a total of 16 goals so far this season.
The Cherries walk into the Craven Cottage this Saturday on the back of a three match unbeaten streak. Their last away match was a thumping 4-0 win at Watford.
Fulham on the other hand, are clearly struggling for results and their morale will be shattered after the 2-4 loss to fellow promoted Cardiff last week. It has to be highlighted that the Bluebirds were win-less up to that point and were struggling for goals.
Defense has been the core of problems for Fulham from day one and they so far conceded 25 goals in Premier League matches. This makes them the worst defense in the league.
However, scoring goals is not a problem for this team and they did manage to score in 6 of their last 8 league games.
The Cottagers are on a three match losing streak and 6 match win-less streak.
Fulham vs Bournemouth Head-to-head
There has been only 4 meetings between the teams in the past 2 decades.
Two of those came in Bournemouth’s promotion winning Championship campaign of 2014/15. The Cherries handed the Cottagers a 5-1 drubbing at Craven Cottage after bagging the home fixture 2-0.
The previous two came in 1998/99 League One campaign, the pair of fixtures ended in stalemates.
Fulham vs Bournemouth Predictions
Fulham are on a poor run of form which is much down to far too many errors in defense. I do not see them fixing this any time soon and the adventurous Bournemouth have the better chance of snatching another win this weekend.
Despite the defensive woes, the Cottagers are capable of scoring goals, something that owes to the quality players in their attacking front. On the other hand, Bournemouth scored an incredible 16 goals from their 9 matches so far and conceded 12.
Thus, the punt to go for is the combination of BTTS & Over 2.5 goals priced at 1.80 (4/5).
A decent alternate is Draw no bet Bournemouth for 1.75 (3/4), as they have what it takes to take at least a point from this encounter.
