Tip Reasoning

  • Bournemouth have won three of their last five Championship away games.
  • Huddersfield are winless in three in all competitions.
  • The Cherries have had an extra 24 hours rest and have played four fewer fixtures than the Terriers in 2022.

Cherries fresher than dog-tired Terriers right now

Anyone who saw Huddersfield surrender their 17-match unbeaten league run in a 2-0 defeat at the New Den on Wednesday can see that Carlos Corberan’s side are running on empty. Millwall could have scored five with two-goal hero Benik Afobe hitting both post and crossbar while Town keeper Lee Nicholls also denied him a hat-trick.

The Terriers have played 16 times already in 2022 and are probably desperate for the upcoming international break so that some of their shattered players can put their feet up.  By comparison, Bournemouth have only played twelve games since the turn of the year. Scott Parker’s squad are also on average younger by two years and have had an extra 24 hours to prepare for their trip to John Smith’s Stadium.

The Cherries were denied victory at home to relegation-threatened Reading in midweek by Tom Ince’s late leveller. Bournemouth had dominated up to that point, but some nervy play near the end allowed the visitors back into it.

Time is right for Cherries to play away

Despite their solid promotion push this term, Parker’s team is relatively inexperienced – certainly by comparison to the other main promotion contenders – and they perhaps still carry some scars from being booed off after a recent 1-1 home draw with Peterborough.

They might welcome an away game at this point in the season and it would seem the oddsmakers also believe the Cherries can pick up a win in west Yorkshire this weekend. Admittedly, Huddersfield probably shouldn’t be as big as nearly 2/1 at home to a side just three points above them, but this is not the time to be backing the Terriers.

In the belief that Bournemouth ought not to lose as long as they keep their heads, there is merit in supporting the visitors in the draw no bet market. The Cherries have lost only four of 17 away league games to date and all four were by just one goal. Similarly six of Bournemouth’s nine away wins have been by one goal, so the correct score recommendation here is for a fifth 1-0 away victory.
