Wolverhampton Wanderers vs AFC Bournemouth Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Wolves were able to snatch a late winner over Newcastle United to make it a 2-1 success at St James’ Park last weekend. Matt Doherty came up with the injury time winner as Wolves made the most of playing against 10-men of Newcastle, who had Deandre Yedlin sent off in the 57th minute. Earlier in the match, Diogo Jota’s first-half goal was cancelled out quickly by Ayoze Perez. Bournemouth fell to another heavy defeat as Liverpool picked up a 4-0 victory at the Vitality Stadium. Mohamed Salah came up with a brilliant hat-trick while Steve Cook’s own goal for the complicated problems for Eddie Howe’s men.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bournemouth travel to the Molineux Stadium hoping for a miracle in terms of results given that the team has gone through a horrendous set of late. Wolves have not been at the best of late, but two consecutive victories will give them a great deal of confidence ahead of this match. Nuno has also seen players like Gibbs-White step up to the plate and contribute a lot of freshness to the squad. I would pick a victory for Wolves.

Eddie Howe’s team have been defensively poor with an alarming 14 goals conceded in the last six matches. Even though Wolves are not the best when it comes to scoring goals, this match features two teams that have enough potential to come up with goals. It makes me go with both teams to score.

Wolves win – 1/1

Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview

Nuno’s men have been the best-promoted team by a huge margin, but they have not been able to get results that have been deserving of their performances. This has changed in the last two matches with Wolves not at the best but still coming away with back-to-back 2-1 victories. The victories have placed them in a very strong position going into the festive run of matches, which sees the club take on the likes of Fulham and Crystal Palace. Wolves have been playing extremely well going forward, but a lack of defensive solidarity has let them down on several occasions. Raul Jimenez is the top scorer for Wolves in the league this season with four league goals.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News

Johny (ligament) is unavailable for Wolves.

AFC Bournemouth Preview

Eddie Howe has a serious problem on his hands with Bournemouth losing five out of the last six matches in the league. Bournemouth have gone from a team that was looking likely to finish in the European places to a team that is seriously fighting to stay in the top half of the table. Bournemouth success last season was down to a strong defence that conceded just 1.6 goals per game on an average. Over the last six matches, the Cherries have conceded 2.3 goals per match. At the top, there is a heavy dependence on Callum Wilson to come up with goals since Joshua King has nowhere been in consistent form this season.

AFC Bournemouth Team News

Callum Wilson (hamstring), Adam Smith (knee), Lewis Cook (cruciate ligament), and Dan Gosling (knee) are unavailable for Bournemouth.
