Premier League Picks Bournemouth vs. Wolverhampton
Bournemouth hosts Wolverhampton at the Vitality Stadium in one of Saturday’s 3:00PM kick-off. The Cherries have been very inconsistent this season. Indeed, they boast the best home-record of the league, aside from the “Big Six”. However, they have also struggled away from home, losing ten of thirteen matches on other grounds. Luckily for them, they play in front of their fans on Saturday. Indeed, the Cherries score around two goals per match at home and concede only one. The lift from their fans have allowed players like Wilson or King to shine. For example, Joshua King has scored three goals and assisted one in Bournemouth’s last two home games. That being said, Bournemouth are on a negative dynamic. They have lost their last two games and conceded six goals against Liverpool and Cardiff. Their defence has shown signs of permeability that the Wolves will hope to exploit.
Indeed, Wolverhampton are in a better dynamic than their opponents. They qualified for the quarter finals of the FA Cup last week and haven’t lost in seven games. Offensively, this team has finally found its mark after an active summer transfer market. They have scored eleven goals in their last four matches in the Premier League while proposing attractive football. The Dendoncker-Moutinho-Neves trio in midfield has been distributing play very effectively. Additionally, Nuno Espirito Santo‘s system seems to have been successfully assimilated by the players. As a result, the promoted side is exceeding expectations and poses serious difficulties to any team in the Prem’. Unlike their opponents, Wolverhampton have been very consistent this season and are as much of an away threat as they are a strong home side. Indeed, 18 of the Wolves‘ 39 points have come from away matches.
Premier League Schedule Wolverhampton vs. Bournemouth
This match seems to be quite well-balanced. Both sides have strong offensive principles which promises a great show. Additionally, Bournemouth will be keen on kick-starting a new run of wins while Wolves will hope to keep their unbeaten streak alive. While Wolverhampton are slightly favourites, I still think that a draw could be a logical result.
PICK: Bournemouth 2-2 Wolverhampton
