Bournemouth vs Southampton Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
First of two Sunday matches, Bournemouth vs Southampton will not be as interesting to watch as it will be for betting.

Even more, major bookmakers offered plenty of different games to play for this match and combined them with surprisingly high betting odds which are the reason why this match should find its place on your betting tickets.
Bournemouth are at the sixteenth place at the table, only four points away from the relegation zone. They need points to secure their position away from the relegation zone and that’s why they are entering this match without calculations and why will head for the victory from the first minute. They however lost in their last league match and failed to win in a match before. This for sure affected to the team confidence, but they hope that the opponents bad form is their key to success.
Southampton on the other side are at the twelfth place at the table, however with only two points more than Bournemouth. They are also in a very bad run, losing in three and failing to win in four of their last five league matches. In this match they will enter very cautious, focusing mostly on defense patiently waiting for a chance to score after a counterattack.
When it comes to their mutual encounters, two teams played draw in their last match, but Southampton won in four out of five matches before in all competitions. They are statistically favorites to win in this match but in reality anything can happen in this match.
