Bournemouth will open this weekend's English Premier League games as they take on Brighton at home. This is an important game since both of these teams look like they will be fighting for relegation come the end of the season. As a result of that, ti will be detrimental that they get points where they can if they want to survive.
Bournemouth is a team that has a lot of heart and they have shown this is the way that they have been playing all season and in the past few season. This year, it seems like their side is just not up to the level it should be. That being said, they are facing a team that are around their level and they will know that with the home crowd behind them, they should be getting all three points.
Brighton, on the other hand, are starting to build up some momentum in the league. This is a side that has been playing really well in the Championship for the past few seasons and they will hope that this squad is good enough this season with the big step up. While Bournemouth are not a really high quality side, they are at home and I think the pressure of being away from home will make this too much for Brighton.
All in all, we are getting a pretty good price on Bournemouth to win this game and as a result I am going suggest that betting on the outright result as the best option. Furthermore, we are getting a good price on the over 2.5 goals and considering the state of these two defensive units, I am expecting a high scoring game.
