Bournemouth v West Bromwich Albion Betting Predictions and Match Preview
Bournemouth host West Bromwich Albion in matchday 31 of the Premier League on Saturday 17th March, 3:00pm at Vitality Stadium. The hosts currently sit in 12th place in the table having lost against Tottenham Hotspur 1-4 last time out, while the visitors are in 20th after their 1-4 loss against Leicester City.
The Baggies’ away form would be best described as shocking, with no wins and a grand total of just four points from their previous 14 matches, so it comes as little surprise to see a Bournemouth side who have won three of their last five home games at this level installed as 65% favourites for victory by our KickOff predictive algorithm.
Last Season's Score
A single goal from Callum Wilson proved enough to settle this fixture in favour of the Cherries last season, with a repeat of that 1-0 result afforded a healthy 12% chance of happening in this encounter.

Team News For AFC Bournemouth
Having seen his team collect just two points from a possible 12 recently, conceding 11 goals along the way, Eddie Howe may choose to shuffle his pack, though Marc Pugh remains doubtful with a calf injury.
Team News For West Bromwich Albion
Jonny Evans missed the 4-1 home defeat at the hands of Leicester last weekend through illness, but the Northern Ireland international defender should be fit to return here.
First Goal Scorer Betting Predictions
The aforementioned Wilson is the Cherries’ top scorer in the Premier League this season with seven goals, so he starts as the 16% favourite to break the deadlock in this contest, though Jermain Defoe (15% chance) is also a contender as he continues his comeback from injury.
This clash will take place at the Vitality Stadium at 3:00pm on Saturday 17th March. Highlights will be shown on Match of the Day later that evening at 10:20pm.
