    Bournemouth v Newcastle United Betting Predictions and Match Preview

    Bournemouth host Newcastle United in matchday 28 of the Premier League on Saturday 24th February, 3:00pm at Vitality Stadium. The hosts currently sit in 10th place in the table having lost against Huddersfield Town 4-1 last time out, while the visitors are in 13th after their 1-0 win against Manchester United.

    Despite occupying a mid-table position, Bournemouth remain far too close to the relegation zone for comfort, though a run of three consecutive 2-1 victories on their own patch in the top-flight ensures that they begin as 60% favourites to come out on top against a Newcastle side who have lost nine times in 16 league trips of late.

    Last Season's Score
    Ayoze Perez was the Magpies’ hero on their most recent visit to this ground back in November 2015, scoring the only goal of the game, and a repeat of that 0-1 scoreline is afforded a 6% chance of happening this time around by our Kickoff predictive algorithm.

    Team News For AFC Bournemouth
    The Cherries were brought crashing down to earth at Huddersfield last time out, so it will be interesting to see whether or not the likes of Adam Smith and Josh King are recalled to the starting XI.

    Team News For Newcastle United
    Having beaten Manchester United in their previous match, it is hard to see Rafael Benitez making too many changes to that winning team, though the Spaniard will be hoping to have Islam Slimani fit and available for the first time following his loan move from Leicester.

    First Goal Scorer Betting Predictions
    Callum Wilson is the Cherries’ top scorer this season with seven Premier League goals, four of which have come in his last eight appearances, so the striker is afforded a 17% chance of breaking the deadlock in this vital encounter.

    This clash will take place at the Vitality Stadium at 3:00pm on Saturday 24th February. Highlights will be shown on Match of the Day later that evening at 10:30pm.
