Tip Reasoning

  • The hosts home games are averaging 3.3 goals per game so far this season.
  • The visitors away games are averaging 3.4 goals per game so far this campaign.
  • Five of Cardiff City’s last six games have witnessed at least three goals.

Table-topping Cherries inconsistencies

Bournemouth comes into this one with an opportunity to enter the new year four points clear at the top of the Championship table, but to do that they’ll need to complete the double over strugglers Cardiff City. The Cherries were victorious via a 1-0 scoreline in the reverse fixture and are coming off the back of a win over QPR, a result that saw them put an end to their six-game winless run where they failed to keep a clean sheet. The hosts have a knack for ending the year well as they’ve secured wins in three of their last four home games of a calendar year, drawing the other.

It’s a completely different story for Cardiff City who sit just three points off of the relegation zone. It’s largely due to their inability to keep clean sheets – only one other side in the division has conceded more goals than The Bluebirds this campaign (39). They’ve been struggling but their road form is oddly impressive, they travel south boasting a four-match unbeaten away run, despite conceding first in three of those.

Bournemouth to emerge victorious

We think that Bournemouth will edge this one, despite a patchy home form, but we also think there will be plenty of chances. These two sides are frequently involved in high scoring matches and both possess defences that are often penetrated far too easily. Goals are the play here.
