Bournemouth vs Newcastle 24 February 2018: EPL Soccer Preview and Predictions

Bournemouth will be at home this weekend as they host Newcastle United in the next game of the English Premier League season. Both sides will be desperate to get three points from this game since both teams are in a relegation battle.

Bournemouth have had a decent few weeks and they are currently sitting comfortably. That being said, a few losses and things will not be looking good anymore for the Cherries. This side has struggled to score goals and that is something they are going to need to change if relegation is to be avoided. The likes of Defoe and Wilson have many goals but they will need to hit some form soon.

On the other hand, Newcastle needs to win some games soon. The Magpies are struggling and it looks like they are going to get relegated. At home they are dangerous but away from home, they seem just as weak. This week they will be away from home. Newcastle United does not have a solid defense and they struggle to score goals. Shelvey is the only attacking threat the Magpies have but he is not good enough to win games on his own. This will be a big test for Newcastle United and I think they will fail by losing to Bournemouth.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good price on betting on the outright result and that means that betting on Bournemouth to win is the best shout. Other than that, the under 2.5 goals is also a good bet. Neither team can score goals so a 1-0 or 2-0 result is the most likely.  

 

Pick:
Bournemouth
