Cardiff v Bournemouth – Betting Tips and Preview
Cardiff v Bournemouth – Sat 2nd Feb, 18:30, Cardiff City Stadium
Bournemouth are looking for a third straight Premier League victory after their brilliant 4-0 win against Chelsea, but how will they fare against Cardiff in the late kickoff. Also, who picked this game for the late kickoff?
Cardiff are pretty solid at home, and the Cherries struggle on their travels, so this is a pretty tough game to call. Bournemouth have lost their last six away matches in a row while conceding at least two goals in each match.
Meanwhile, Cardiff are winless in their last three home matches (L2 D1) with their last win coming in early December against Southampton. I am not really sure what to expect in this game, but if Bournemouth are as clinical as they were against Chelsea, they could be in for another three points.
Cardiff have only scored one goal in their last four matches while conceding eight goals. Meanwhile, Bournemouth have scored six goals in their last two matches keeping two clean sheets. It’s just whether they can bring that cracking home form to their away performances.
Firstly, Cardiff are 9/4 to win, the draw is 5/2 and a Bournemouth win is 7/5.
I know Bournemouth have been pretty poor on the road lately, but there is value in the away win at 7/5. The Cherries have had a number of tough away games, against Everton, Spurs, Man City, United and Wolves in their last five away losses.
They were always going to be tough games, but they should be able to turn that around with a win here. A Bournemouth win is best priced at 7/5 with Betfred. However, the Bournemouth defence is pretty leaky on the road, and I can see them conceding in this match.
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is best priced at 6/5 with William Hill. On that note, I see value in BTTS Bournemouth win, which is best priced at 7/2 with bet365.
