What Trueform says for Bournemouth vs Southampton
Bournemouth were in much better form than Southampton, but their ratings have slipped again over the last week and that makes things pretty even on our Trueform chart.
Saints stormed to an impressive victory over Everton and would have picked up another high mark at Manchester City but for Raheem Sterling’s 96th-minute sickener.
With this derby clash sure to be a tense affair, we’re now tempted to take 21/10 for a draw in our Bournemouth vs Southampton betting predictions.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
After climbing out of the relegation zone with three wins in four Premier League games, Bournemouth will have been frustrated to only draw 0-0 at Swansea and then lose 2-1 at home to Burnley.
Josh King’s late strike against the Clarets was nothing more than a consolation goal in a match where Eddie Howe’s side offered little going forward.
“It’s a tough one to take in terms of our performance,” said Howe. “I’m very disappointed with how we played, I don’t think we truly got going at any stage in the game.”
Looking ahead to the next fixture, he added: “I hope that there will be a really good atmosphere and a full house and we can really get going.
“You’ve got to set your stall out in the game and really give your fans a platform to get involved as a home team.”
At least King’s first goal since September was a boost and he is hopefully now back in the same mood as when ending last season with a run of 14 goals in 19 league games.

A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton have struggled to string good performances together this term, but they followed up an emphatic 4-1 triumph over Everton with another fine effort in defeat at Manchester City.
Saints had to survive quite a few scares at the back but also created a number of chances themselves and looked set to earn a surprise point when Oriol Romeu equalised on 75 minutes.
A draw would have been well deserved after such a determined display, but Sterling broke their hearts when curling in the last-gasp winner.
Mauricio Pellegrino was unhappy with the amount of time added on, but said: “Obviously it is painful for us to concede one goal at the end, but I think we have to learn how to approach this type of moment for the next time.”
Looking at the Bournemouth vs Southampton odds, 5/1 for a 1-1 stalemate catches the eye.
BOURNEMOUTH 1-2 Burnley – Josh King
Man City 2-1 SOUTHAMPTON – Oriol Romeu
Head-to-head: Southampton 0-0 Bournemouth, Bournemouth 1-3 Southampton, Bournemouth 2-0 Southampton, Southampton 2-0 Bournemouth
