Bournemouth vs Arsenal 7 Feb 2016: EPL Preview and Predictions

Bournemouth will be taking on Arsenal in what will be a test for the Gunners. This is a game between a team filled with heart and a team filled with talent. Bournemouth are a good team and at home they will test even the best of sides so I am expecting a lot from this match not only for entertainment, but also an indication of how good the teams are.

Bournemouth have had a surprisingly good record and at home they have created a fortress. This is something quite amazing for a club of their size but nevertheless they have done it and this weekend they will truly be able to test themselves. The only problem with Bournemouth at the moment though is the fact that they are lacking goals and that is something that could cost them in the long run. That being said, it will be interesting to see how they handle the issue against Arsenal.

The Gunners on the other hand are slowly watching their title chances wash away and they need to start winning if they want to give themselves a chance at the Premier League title. For a league leading side, this should be a regulation win but I don’t think that they will get there. They are failing to win lately and I think they will only leave with 1 point here.

As far as betting is concerned, I think that taking the outright line is definitely the way to go. We are getting a good price like we always do for a draw and I think it should be pretty safe. That being said, I will be putting a smallish bet since this is probably not the easiest game of the weekend.
