Newly promoted Bournemouth has been in good form lately and they showed this as they managed to get points against sides such as Everton and Manchester United. This week they will have another chance to prove their worth as they head to Leicester where Jamie Vardy and his Leicester City side await. This is going to be an interesting game and there is a lot at stake.
Bournemouth are in good form and for a side like this one, it is important that they get the points while they can since it will be essential in their bid to stay up. This team has impressed but you feel that with their squad depth that once things will not stay this way. Sooner or later the wheels will fall of the wagon and in my opinion that happened after their loss to Arsenal. This week they should prove that as I think they will be well beaten by the former league leaders.
Leicester will be desperate to win here. They are even on points with the league leaders and they will want to be there if the Gunners slip up. This team has been playing some exceptional football and I think that will continue here since they are up against weak opponents and they are in form.
As betting goes in this match, there is no real value in this match. I think that betting on Leicester to win outright is the only safe bet but we are not getting a great price. Furthermore, the number of goals in this game is really hard to predict since it is hard to know what style of football the teams will be playing. If I had to take a bet I would take Leicester City at 1.90 and call it a safety bet but I think looking at other games is the better way to go.
