What Trueform says for Bournemouth vs Leicester
Bournemouth and Leicester are hard to split on this season’s Trueform ratings, with both teams getting off to a solid start.
That ties in with past head-to-head meetings, as five of their six Premier League encounters have ended in stalemate, with the other being a narrow 1-0 win for the Cherries.
Everything points towards this being an even contest again, so 23/10 for yet another draw is hard to resist as our first Bournemouth vs Leicester prediction.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth suffered their first defeat of the new campaign when going down 2-0 at Chelsea prior to the international break, with Eddie Howe’s side restricted to just 27 per cent of possession.
However, they did show plenty of courage in defence at Stamford Bridge, while Callum Wilson and Nathan Ake missed great chances when the game was still goalless.
The Cherries had previously beaten Cardiff and West Ham before drawing with Everton, with seven points enough to keep them in sixth place.
A strong spirit within the club was highlighted by midfielder Junior Stanislas recently being handed a new three-year deal, despite being out since March because of a knee injury.
Last Bournemouth line-up: Begovic, Francis, Cook, Ake, Smith, Rico, Gosling, Lerma, Fraser, Wilson, King.
Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser is a doubt because of a hamstring problem picked up on international duty with Scotland.
Left-back Charlie Daniels (knee) missed the defeat at Chelsea and remains unavailable.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester also went into the international break on the back of a loss after going down 2-1 at home to Liverpool.
Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino put the Reds in control, but Rachid Ghezzal pounced on a mistake by Alisson to set up a tense finish.
That was a decent effort without suspended striker Jamie Vardy and Claude Puel said: “The second half was fantastic, we showed good quality and had a lot of chances.
“We had good tempo, good aggression. We played with confidence and we had the chances to come back. It is encouraging.”
The Foxes had previously secured top-flight victories over Wolves and Southampton, as well as thrashing Fleetwood 4-0 in the EFL Cup.
Tying England defender Harry Maguire down to a long-term deal was another boost and we like 23/4 for a 1-1 draw to complete our Bournemouth vs Leicester betting tips.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Morgan, Pereira, Maguire, Gray, Maddison, Albrighton, Mendy, Ndidi, Ghezzal.
Leicester will have Vardy available again after completing his ban, while Caglar Soyuncu, a £19million signing on the final day of the summer transfer window, is “fit and ready” to make his debut.
Midfielder Matty James requires further surgery as he battles to return from an Achilles problem.
