The Line: Liverpool -150 / Draw +295 / Bournemouth +375 -- Over/Under: 2.5
In the English Premier League, Bournemouth will host Liverpool at the Vitality Stadium.
Bournemouth won midweek as they beat Huddersfield at home. It was an interesting win for Bournemouth as they only had 32% of the possession and 2 shots on goal but were very efficient in front of goal as they managed to get a 2-1 win. It has been a very good season for Bournemouth as they have been very strong at home which has allowed this team to remain in the top half of the ladder. That being said, Bournemouth will be the big underdogs for this fixture as they are playing one of the top teams in the world.
Liverpool were dominant in the previous match as beat Burnley 3-1 away from home. It was a very good game for the Reds as they maintained 75% of the possession. Roberto Firmino played very well as he managed to score the opening goal for Liverpool. The midfield has been very good for Liverpool as the team always dominated possession and that has been the biggest asset for this team. This is a big game for Liverpool as Manchester City have a tough fixture against Chelsea so there is a very realistic chance for the Reds to move into top spot on the ladder. Playing against Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium has not been easy this season but considering the talent available to Liverpool, the Reds will expect to get all 3 points from this fixture.
While Bournemouth have been exceptional at home this season, I think Liverpool will be too strong. The Reds have some of the best players in the world and with a possibility of top spot available, I see a very determined Liverpool taking the pitch this weekend. With much at stake, I see Liverpool winning this match.
