Fulham v Bournemouth predictions and free football betting tips for Friday night’s Championship clash from football tipsters.
Bournemouth got back to winning ways on Tuesday night with a 2—1 victory over Wolves, but it isn’t just the Cherries who are wobbling as all of the top 6 have been guilty of dropping points in the last fortnight. Norwich couldn’t take advantage of Ipswich and Derby slipping up by beating Wigan whilst Middlesbrough have gone top once again…the race is very much on.
This isn’t an easy fixture for Eddie Howe’s men, he wouldn’t have chosen to go to Craven Cottage given the choice as Fulham aren’t bad on home soil, it’s on their travels they are questionable.
The Cottagers deserved their 2-0 victory over then-leaders Derby County and they had plenty of chances against Watford in Midweek, but they haven’t been scoring enough. Whilst Ross McCormack has gone some way to pay back that £11m transfer fee, he has a long way to go to match his unassailable total he garnered at Leeds.
I can see it being a close match that neither side will want to lose. Fulham aren’t completely out of the woods yet, you’d have to say they’ll be fine, but just a few back-to back wins for Rotherham or Wigan and they’ll be tentatively peering over their shoulders once again.
Bournemouth have lost both of their last two away games and this will be difficult for them, so It might be best to back them on the Draw No Bet. The price looks a little short on that market, so a draw could also be worth backing for a greater return. It’s 11/4 with Betvictor for it to finish all square and I’d prefer to take that option. They haven’t been at their scintillating best and Fulham do have the habit of pulling a result out of the bag.
Our first free football tip for Fulham v Bournemouth is the match result to be a draw at 11/4 with Bet Victor.
The South Coast side may have lost their last 2 away games, but they managed to score in both games and they certainly have plenty of firepower. Callum Wilson is being coveted by clubs from the Premier League whilst when Yann Kermogant is on song, Bournemouth usually win.
Fulham also have goals in them and if they can get Hugo Rodellega fit and firing again, him and Ross McCormack can scare any Championship defence.
It looks like both sides should find the net here as neither have built their success on being defensively sound and look susceptible to pace at the back.
Bet on both teams to score at 4/6 with Bet365.
Bournemouth score plenty of goals from midfield and the contributions of Marc Pugh, Harry Arter and Matt Ritchie have lifted them to their elevated position in the higher echelons of the league. The latter is a creative hub, but also has an eye for the spectacular goal. He is skilful on the ball and shows plenty of poise and is worth taking a chance on to score in the 90th minute. Callum Wilson and Yann Kermogant are favourites in the market, but it might be worth taking on a midfielder at a slightly larger price.
Our third and final Fulham v Bournemouth prediction is for Matt Ritchie to score anytime at 10/3 Bet365.
