The Line: Bournemouth Draw Leicester City See the Latest Odds

One of the best match ups of the weekend comes from the Vitality Stadium where Bournemouth will host high flying Leicester City. Bournemouth finally got off the mark in the Premier League with a crazy 4-3 win over West Ham at Upton Park. Eddie Howe's side were tremendous in what was probabaly the game of the young season thus far. With Callum Wilson firing his first, second and third Premier League goals the Bournemouth traveling support went crazy and the Cherries got their first win of their first Premier League season. Can Bournemouth build on that success when they face a really tough Leicester City on Saturday?
Leicester come into this game second in the league table with two wins and a draw from three games. Claudio Ranieri has come in and done an excellent job with the Foxes starting the season strongly and getting two impressive wins before holding on for a point against Tottenham last time out in a game that they also easily could have won. Leicester have some strength in depth this season with Okazaki and Mahrez forming an excellent partnership up front and last season top scorer Ulloa getting it hard to break into the first eleven. During the midweek League Cup game exciting english youngster Joseph Dodoo netted a hat trick and let his boss know that he could be ready for the step up to the Premier League, it will be interesting to see if he gets some game time this weekend.
This one should be a cracker of a game, we have two sides well capable of scoring goals and both will feel that this is a good opportunity to pick up three points. I am predicting both teams to get a couple and for this one to have lots of drama, although Bournemouth did struggle to find the net in their opening two league games they have now scored eight goals in their last two outtings and Leicester have been goal machines all season. Taking both teams to score and going to sit down and watch what should be a really good game!
