Bournemouth welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to the Vitality Stadium on Saturday afternoon (15:00), still searching for their first win of the Premier League campaign.

The Cherries come into this match occupying a place in the relegation zone, while Wolves are currently four points clear of the bottom three in 14th.

Bournemouth vs Wolves Prediction

  • Draw and both teams to score (yes) @ 3/1
  • Dominic Solanke to score anytime @ 7/4

Team News

The Cherries have a lengthy injury list to contend with coming into this game, as Tyler Adams, Ryan Fredericks, Lloyd Kelly, Emiliano Marcondes and Alex Scott will all be absent.

As for Wolves, Hugo Bueno continues to recover from a hamstring problem, while Mario Lemina will be suspended this weekend after his dismissal against Aston Villa.

Match Odds

Bournemouth are 13/10 to claim their first victory of the season, while Wolves are 15/8 to take the three points back to the West Midlands and the draw can be backed at 23/10.

Draw and both teams to score (yes) @ 3/1

Bournemouth come into this game off the back of two thumpings, losing 3-0 and 4-0 to Everton and Arsenal, respectively. The Cherries have also conceded the highest amount of first-half goals in the league this term, which will surely encourage a bright, energetic start from their opponents on Saturday.

The problem is I still haven’t figured out Wolves, who appear more unpredictable than the weather at the moment, as their 2-1 victory over Manchester City is sandwiched between 1-1 draws with Luton Town and Aston Villa.

Both defences have struggled for clean sheets so far, as the Cherries have shipped 18 goals, while Wolves have conceded 14 themselves, so backing both sides to score certainly appeals. The visitors have also only won one of their last 12 matches away from home, so I’m backing the draw here also.

Dominic Solanke to score anytime @ 7/4

Solanke has been Bournemouth’s primary source of goals so far this season, netting on three occasions, and he’ll fancy his chances of getting on the scoresheet once more here, against a Wolves side that have only kept one clean sheet this term.

Perhaps there is an over-reliance on the former Liverpool striker, as the Cherries have only scored five goals in total across their eight games, but I certainly think he’s one to watch here.
