Meanwhile, Fulham are looking to bounce back from a disappointing defeat at home to Burnley, after back-to-back 5-0 victories at Craven Cottage.

Bournemouth vs Fulham Prediction

  • Bournemouth to win @ 23/20
  • Dominic Solanke to score anytime @ 8/5

Team News

Tyler Adams, Lloyd Kelly and Max Aarons all missed Bournemouth's win over Nottingham Forest at the weekend, and it remains to be seen whether they'll feature here.

Fulham’s Adama Traore is out with a hamstring injury, while Tim Ream was absent for the defeat against Burnley with a calf problem and he's expected to miss out again here.

However, Raul Jimenez will be welcome back into the fold, after serving a suspension for his red card in the defeat to Newcastle United.

Match Odds

The hosts are 23/20 to win their fourth consecutive outing, while the visitors are 11/5 to get back in the win column, and the draw is 5/2.

Dominic Solanke is favourite to score anytime at 13/8, while both teams to score is odds-on at 8/13.

Bournemouth to win @ 23/20

Bournemouth’s 3-2 victory at Nottingham Forest on Saturday was their fifth win in six and third in a row. After a slow start to the campaign, the Cherries have hit top gear and they’ve scored 15 times across their last six outings.

The Cottagers enjoyed back-to-back 5-0 wins at Craven Cottage before their defeat to Burnley on Saturday, but their away form paints a different picture. Marco Silva's men have lost their past three away games, conceding 10 times during that stretch.

The Cherries are in excellent form, and it's difficult to see any other outcome than a Bournemouth win.

Dominic Solanke to score anytime @ 8/5

The former Liverpool striker netted a hat-trick in the 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest at the weekend, to spoil Nuno Espirito Santo's first game in charge of the Tricky Trees.

Solanke has scored 11 goals so far this term, and has played a huge part in the Cherries' recent upturn in form. He looks a good bet to score again, with the Cherries aiming to extend a three-game winning streak.
