What Trueform says for Bournemouth vs Arsenal
Bournemouth would probably struggle to cope with Arsenal at their best, but they can match the Gunners when looking at an average Trueform rating.
With the Cherries unbeaten in three Premier League games and having picked up a point in this corresponding fixture last season, we fancy the hosts to secure a positive result.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth made eight changes when drawing 2-2 with Wigan in the FA Cup, but one player who did keep his place caught the eye.
Defender Steve Cook added to his growing list of important strikes by heading in a stoppage-time equaliser against the League One outfit.
The centre-half was also on target versus Newcastle and Brighton this season and now has nine goals to his credit over the past two and a half seasons.
Manager Howe commented: “He’s developed that knack again, the goal at Brighton, the goal at Newcastle, huge goals for us at important points.
“You do need goals from everywhere, so we’re delighted with our set-piece return in recent weeks and he’s been a big part of that.”
The Gunners can look a bit shaky in the air at the back, so 14/1 for Cook to strike again here is worth a speculative wager in our Bournemouth vs Arsenal betting tips.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal’s hopes of a fourth FA Cup triumph in five years were crushed by a 4-2 defeat at Nottingham Forest, when Arsene Wenger’s decision to make nine changes backfired.
However, the Frenchman will have been much happier with Wednesday’s 0-0 draw at Chelsea in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final.
In the league, the Gunners are unbeaten in seven matches but five of those fixtures ended with the scores level, leaving them facing an uphill battle to make the top four.
Arsenal haven’t lost to Bournemouth in five Premier League meetings but they did have to fight back from 3-0 down to pick up a point at this ground 12 months ago.
Looking at the Bournemouth vs Arsenal odds, we’re expecting another even contest and like 333/100 for a score draw.
