Bournemouth vs Sunderland Predictions

Bournemouth’s resurgence took a blow last weekend as Middlesbrough deservedly beat them 2-0 at the Riverside Stadium, but now the southerners are hoping to take advantage of a different north east club.

Overall the hosts are in decent form, with two wins, two draws, and that single defeat making up their last five results. This includes an emphatic 6-1 hammering of Hull and a win against Everton. Both of these victories came at the Vitality Stadium, as did their draw against Spurs. In fact, they have won three, drawn one, and lost one of their five home league games this season, and they are currently unbeaten in four there.

Bournemouth’s play has largely been based around keeping a tight ship at the back, as three clean sheets in their last four home games suggests. However, they have needed someone to do the business at the other end of the pitch, and Junior Stanislas is doing the best job so far. He has netted all three of his Premier League goals at home this season, with them all coming in his last three outings. Odds of 7/4 for him to find the net again look very good value.

His chances of scoring again are dramatically increased thanks to the quality of the opposition. Sunderland look absolutely dreadful this season. Ten games in and they are rock bottom in the table having not won a single game yet. They have picked up just two points so far, scoring seven goals and conceding 20 to make it the worst start to the Premier League in their history.

Last weekend saw them lose 4-1 at home to Arsenal to make it four losses on the bounce in all competitions and six games without a win since their League Cup victory at QPR. They have scored just four goals in these six games, conceding 12 at the other end.

The last time Bournemouth faced an out of form side at home they absolutely destroyed Hull, and I think another comprehensive win could be on the cards here. Odds of 2.050 for a Bournemouth -1.0 Asian Handicap look very good value to me, so that’s what I’m backing alongside a 2-0 correct score prediction at 15/2.
