PREM CITY AIM FOR TOP TWO

CITY AIM FOR TOP TWO

13th February 2017

Whizz the clock back to December and Bournemouth were a top-half Premier League side who were fearful of no side.

Their decent home record was supplemented by a couple of good away wins, but all that seems an age ago now.

Eddie Howe's men are winless in the league in 2017 and the loss of key players like Callum Wilson out for the season and Simon Francis and Charlie Daniels both big doubts is not helping.

Bournemouth have won 18 of 26 points at home but recent defeats to Palace and Hull have seen them firmly in the relegation scrap.

Bournemouth were relying on outscoring their opponents and have netted 21 to 19 conceded at home. They have let three goals in no less than 12 times this season and no shock that over 2.5 goals is a 1/2 shot - under normal circumstances a very short price.

City are fairly prolific on the road with 26 goals in 12 games - almost two a game.

But, sometimes needs must and Bournemouth may have to strat playing ugly to survive. Expect Josh King to sit alone up front. The unders price of 6/4 looks worth punting in a game that may not follow the script.
