Burnley vs. AFC Bournemouth Predictions
‘The Clarets’ are yet to win in the Premier League this season but most of this is due to the disappointing performance at the back. So far Burnley concedes a huge number of chances which would benefit Bournemouth’s attack. The visitors are sharp in front of goals managing to score 10 goals in 5 games. However, ‘The Cherries’ also have problems with defence so Both Teams to Score looks like a decent value bet.
If you fancy higher odds, we recommend a AFC Bournemouth Win by 1 Goal Margin bet. Bournemouth should keep the momentum going and could leave Turf Moor as the heroes in a narrow win.
Both Teams to Score – 1.75
AFC Bournemouth Win by 1 Goal Margin – 4.33
