Wolves vs Bournemouth Prediction & Betting tips
Last season, the Wolverhampton Wanderers landed surprisingly in seventh place as promoted and then played their way through the qualification rounds into the Europa League. Although many experts suspected that Nuno Espírito Santo’s team would not be able to repeat this surprise success, the team from the West Midlands is currently playing for the international starting positions again.
A 2-0 win at West Ham cemented Wanderers sixth. A starting position for the Champions League is just five points away. At home against the Cherries threatened by the descent, it is necessary to refill. Which bookmaker at Wolverhampton vs Bournemouth offers the best odds is revealed by the odds comparison of the betting base.
However, Wolverhampton vs. Bournemouth must take into account in the forecast that the Wanderers won only five of their 15 league home games at Molineux Stadium. The Europa League round of 16 left the points mostly at home. Conversely, the Cherries do not have a good away record. The 18th of the current table lost eleven of the 15 games in foreign places.
Although the home side are not a home power, it is largely without alternative to play tip 1 at Wolverhampton against Bournemouth. Further betting recommendations for matchday 31 of the top English division are also available in the Premier League betting tips category.
The Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club, which had already celebrated three national championships in England in the 1950s, has increasingly become a house number in English and international football in the past two years. The Wolves still played in the third-rate League One in the 2013/14 season.
Since Nuno Espírito Santo took over the club in the summer of 2017 in the championship, the traditional club, which was once one of twelve founding members of the Football League in 1888, has risen like a phoenix from the ashes. The promotion in the first year under the new coach was followed by an immediate move into the Europa League.
Fields in which the West Midlands team is stuck in shape. The re-start into league operations went off well on Saturday with the 2-0 away win at West Ham United. This left the Wanderers unbeaten in the sixth league game in a row and consolidated sixth place.
The task now is to defend sixth place against the pursuers Sheffield United and Tottenham Hotspur on the remaining eight game days. On the other hand, with just five points behind a starting spot for the UEFA Champions League, something could still go up if the team’s winning streak continues.
In terms of qualification for the premier class, the Europa League could also become a springboard. There it goes for the Wolves in August against Olympiacos Piraeus. After the 1-1 draw in Greece, the gate to the Final 8 tournament in Germany is wide open.
Before that, of course, the focus is on the Premier League, in which Bournemouth is a largely grateful opponent at the Molineux Stadium. Here, the Wanderers could only win five of their 15 matches, but lost only three times in seven draws.
Accordingly, at Wolverhampton against Bournemouth tip 1 is quite sustainable. After all, the relegated Cherries are by no means considered strong abroad. Success coach Nuno Espírito Santo plays all the more into the cards that his squad is fully operational.
AFC Bournemouth was founded in 1899. However, it took 116 years before the club known as Boscombe rose to the top division in the country for the first time. The Cherries have been an integral part of the English Premier League since the 2015/16 season.
Under the long-time trainer Eddie Howe, who has been in office since October 2012, the men from the English south coast held the class year after year without ever having attacked significantly. Only in summer 2017 was a final placement in the top half of the table when the Cherries finished ninth.
Currently staying in England’s top division is at acute risk. After the 0-2 home defeat to re-start against Crystal Palace, Boscombe finally remained in a direct relegation zone and missed the chance to pass West Ham and Watford.
The big drawback of the Cherries is undoubtedly the weak offensive. Bournemouth has only scored 29 goals in the previous 30 games in the Premier League. Practically half of all goals are for Callum Wilson (eight goals) and Liverpool loan Harry Wilson (seven goals). Only Newcastle, Norwich and Watford were even less efficient before the opposing goal.
Conversely, Boscombe has already conceded 49 goals, which is why the odds at Wolverhampton against Bournemouth are also clearly towards the home side. Finally, there are two more negative values.
For one thing, there have been eleven defeats away from 15 league games, which, together with Aston Villa and Norwich, is the worst value of the entire Premier League. Secondly, the men from the English south coast only scored seven points in eleven games in the second half of the season, which earned them the Red Lantern in the second half of the season.
The first relegation from the top English division can still be averted with 24 points to be awarded. The fact that two defenders, Lloyd Kelly and Charlie Daniels, are currently injured does not make the task of taking something countable away with strong Wolves in the away game, certainly not easier.
