Can Arsenal continue their title push with a win at Bournemouth? The Cherries have a strong home record this season, they’ve already taken a couple of big scalps this year. Will that continue against the Gunners on Tuesday night?
Bournemouth vs Arsenal Predictions
Arsenal remain nine points behind the league leaders going in to this game, it’s fair to say they’re walking a tightrope. With Chelsea steaming through opposition, and Liverpool putting up a stern test, the Gunners risk being cut adrift. Can they take three points here and continue their title push?
Arsenal have won over half of their away league games this term, but they’ve also won 100% of their clashes with Bournemouth. They will find things a little tougher here, given that the Cherries have a strong record at the Vitality this term, scoring 1.78 goals per match here. The Gunners have conceded a goal per game, scoring two in return. That’s why we’re backing them to win here with both sides scoring for our first Bournemouth vs Arsenal betting tip, which is priced at 13/5 with William Hill.
Olivier Giroud made a fantastic start to the year, scoring twice against Crystal Palace on Sunday. He should keep his place in the team, especially after his fantastic first goal. We’re backing him to build on his New Year’s Day display, with the French striker priced at 23/17 with 888Sport to score any time tonight and that’s our second Bournemouth vs Arsenal prediction.
