West Brom vs Bournemouth 12 August 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Tony Pullis and West Brom take on Bournemouth in the first game of the English Premier League for both sides. This is a game that both teams will want to win since getting early points will be vital for the two teams. I think we can expect a good game from these two middle of the pack teams.

Bournemouth has established themselves well in the Premier League but this year will be another test for them. This side relies a lot on their home fans whom they will be without in this fixture so that will make life hard for them. I think they will be in with a shot for the entire game since they are unlikely to be blown away by West Brom but they will need to continuously play well.

West Brom has a habit of parking the bus and on the opening day of the season, I expect a very similar approach from this side. The Hawthorns will be packed for this game and that should give this side a massive boost. I think they will probably be good enough to get the win, especially since they are playing at home.

All in all, I am going to predict that West Brom will win this game. This team is better and at home, so it makes sense. We are getting a pretty good price on this bet so I think it is the way to go. I am also going to predict that this will be a low scoring game so the under 2.5 goals is another bet that I am going to go for.

 

Pick:
West Brom
