West Brom vs Bournemouth 19 Dec 2015: EPL Preview and Predictions
19 December 2015/ 1000ET
West Brom play Bournemouth this weekend in what should be a good match. Both teams have had a good few weeks and they will want to continue their good form. This match is an important match for both sides since they are both still in risk of getting relegated and winning matches is a good way to get out of the danger zone.
West Brom will be at home this weekend and they will look to use full advantage of the home crowd. This team are coming of an away draw against Liverpool so that will give them a lot of confidence coming into this encounter. West Brom have played well this season and although the result don’t show it, they are a team that is improving. This match will be a test for them since it is a game they are expected to win and handling the pressure is not always easy. Having said that I believe that they will be good enough to win this encounter.
Bournemouth will also have a lot of confidence heading into this match since they are coming of a home win against Manchester United. This game showed that this side has talent and even though Manchester United were poor, it still took some doing to win that match. I like Bournemouth but I don’t think they can win this match. A large portion of Bournemouth’s success comes from home games and their away record is significantly poorer so I think away from home this match will be too much for them.
This match is going to be a close one in my opinion and the bookmakers agree with me. As a result, I think that betting on the outright result is the most profitable play here. West Brom are favorites in this match and I think they will win so that is the best bet in my opinion. The bookmakers are paying over 2.00 for this bet as well so I think that in addition to it being relatively safe, it has a lot of value.
