What Trueform says for Arsenal vs Bournemouth
Arsenal continued their excellent home form when seeing off Southampton on Sunday and are also fancied to take care of Bournemouth at Emirates Stadium.
The Cherries have lost on all three visits to this venue since being promoted to the Premier League and were beaten 2-1 by the Gunners at Vitality Stadium three months ago.
Matches between these teams are usually entertaining, though, so 17/20 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game gets the nod for our first Arsenal vs Bournemouth prediction.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal climbed back into the top four thanks to a 2-0 triumph over the Saints, with Alexandre Lacazette and Henrikh Mkhitaryan hitting the target in a smooth success.
The Gunners should really have increased their advantage, but Unai Emery was still happy to make it 11 wins from 14 home games in this competition.
He said: “We have a lot of matches and it’s important to have big performances like this.
“Our first competition for us is the Premier League. It gives us the possibility to be consistent. At home, we are feeling strong.”
The Gunners have now won by more than one goal nine times at Emirates Stadium and 21/20 for that to happen again here stands out from the Arsenal vs Bournemouth odds.
Last Arsenal line-up: Leno, Papastathopoulos, Lichtsteiner, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Mkhitaryan, Ramsey, Torreira, Iwobi, Xhaka, Lacazette.
Arsenal could be without Alex Iwobi (ankle) and Stephan Lichtsteiner (back), while Danny Welbeck, Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding remain sidelined.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth will have been left frustrated by Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Wolves, even if that was a decent effort without injured attacking trio Callum Wilson, David Brooks and Junior Stanislas.
Josh King, who opened the scoring from 12 yards, missed another late spot-kick, minutes after Wolves striker Raul Jimenez had converted a penalty to level.
The Cherries must now cope without combative midfielder Jefferson Lerma, who picked up his 10th booking of the season and starts a two-match ban.
That will hurt a team which has been struggling badly on the road, losing eight straight Premier League away games, with 23 goals conceded in those matches.
Let’s finish off our Arsenal vs Bournemouth betting tips by taking 10/1 for a 3-1 home victory.
Last Bournemouth line-up: Boruc, Ake, Smith, Clyne, Mepham, Gosling, Lerma, Ibe, Fraser, King, Solanke.
Eddie Howe remains without Steve Cook (groin), Stanislas (hip), Brooks (ankle) and Wilson (knee), as well as long-term absentees Simon Francis and Lewis Cook (both knee).
