Bournemouth v Arsenal Betting Predictions and Match Preview
The Gunners have work to do if they are to qualify for the Champions League next season, be that through winning the Europa League or by climbing back into the top-four, and slipping up at Bournemouth would not help with the second of those objectives.
Arsene Wenger’s men are actually unbeaten in seven top-flight matches, albeit that five of these have been drawn (26% chance), and the North London outfit start as 48% favourites to come out on top against opponents who have triumphed only once in ten league games of late.
Last season’s score
It is a clear sign of just how much the Cherries have blossomed in recent times that this will be only the seventh meeting between the clubs in their entire history, with Arsenal winning five and drawing one of the previous six.
Just two potential scorelines are given at least a 10% chance of happening by our KickOff predictive algorithm, with these being 0-1 (12% chance) and 1-1 (12% chance), though 0-2 (9% chance) cannot be discounted either.
Top betting tips and predictions
Although both sides are renowned for playing football that is pleasing on the eye, the visitors have not been involved in too many thrillers on their travels recently, with four of their last five games serving up under 2.5 goals (53% chance).
If Bournemouth are to get their noses in front, then five-goal Callum Wilson (10% chance) surely represents their biggest threat, though Alexis Sanchez (18% chance) and Alexandre Lacazette (18% chance) are more likely to break the deadlock for Arsenal.
