Make Yourself At Home By The Seaside

Bournemouth are ranking as a top five side at home with 20pts accrued at the Vitality Stadium. The Saints have taken just 6pts on their travels.

It’s tough to win on the road in the Premier League. Following Saturday’s matches only five teams have won more more than twice away in 2016-17 even as we approach Christmas.

On Sunday Bournemouth have home advantage against south coast rivals with whom they are locked in mid-table on 21 points each. They should never be as long as a best price 23/10 (Skybet) to take the spoils.

The Cherries boast the fifth best home record in the top flight (W5 D1 L2) and have already beaten Liverpool and Leicester at the Vitality Stadium in December.

In contrast, Southampton are one of the many sides who have only won once on their travels and have taken just six points away. Even if Charlie Austin was available they couldn’t justify favouritism at this venue.
