Sunderland might have one last chance as they take on Bournemouth in what will be a do or die clash at the Stadium of Light. Both teams need a win. For Sunderland a win will keep up their fight while for Bournemouth it will mean that they can rest easy as they will be all but sure to keep a place in the Premier League next season.

Sunderland have a ton of issues and at the moment it looks like a lost cause. This team is weak at the back and have not attacking prowess minus Jermaine Defoe who also seems to be on vacation at the moment. This team is poor and I see this as a game that will sum up their season.

For Bournemouth on the other hand, this will be their best chance of securing their place in safety. This team has a lot of fight in them but in addition to that, they seem to be simply better than the other team that they will be playing.

All in all I see this as a game that will go only one way and that is in the direction of the visitors. Bournemouth are not exceptional but are solid while Sunderland are simply awful. We are getting a good price on the away team winning and as a result I think it will be a good bet.

Pick:
Bournemouth
