Bournemouth take on relegated Fulham at the Vitality Stadium still capable of finishing in the top 10 places. The Cherries are five points behind Watford in the 10th spot, but they have been very inconsistent in the second-half of the campaign. Meanwhile, Fulham are playing for pride in the last four games of the season as they prepare for life in the Championship once again. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Bournemouth picked up their biggest win of the campaign after beating Brighton 5-0 at the AMEX Stadium. This victory improved on the 4-0 success over Chelsea back in January, but Bournemouth were helped by Anthony Knockaert’s 68th minute red card.
Fulham ended a nine-game losing streak with a 2-0 success over Everton at Craven Cottage. This was the first victory for Scott Parker since coming in as the replacement for Claudio Ranieri.
Fulham lost 3-0 against Bournemouth earlier in the campaign and the Cottagers were reduced to 10 men late in the game. Meanwhile, the Cherries prepare to host Fulham in the Premier League for the first time as the last meeting between these two clubs at the Vitality Stadium was in the Championship. The hosts picked up a 2-0 victory in this game. Our betting tips and predictions would opt for a Bournemouth win.

Fulham may have picked up a crucial victory and kept a clean sheet for the first time this season only last weekend, but Bournemouth will be rubbing their hands at the prospect of another big win. The massive success over Brighton will provide confidence amongst the Cherries to go for a 13th win of the campaign. Bournemouth are also on a three-game winning sequence against Fulham, who do not travel well. The Cottagers have only managed two draws in 17 away games this season. Our preview would opt for a Bournemouth victory.

Bournemouth vs Fulham draw odds: 4.40
Fulham win odds: 5.25
Correct Score odds
Bournemouth registered five goals in a recent match against Brighton, but Fulham may not offer the Cherries with the same kind of time and space. After the clean sheet against Everton, Fulham may have built up a small amount of confidence at the back. Still, there is a large gap between the two teams and our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Bournemouth.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Fulham are looking to avoid an eighth consecutive defeat. Crucially, six out of these matches have produced over 2.5 goals but it should not be a surprise since Fulham are the worst defensive unit in the division by a significant margin after conceding 76 goals. Our total goals prediction would opt for over 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals over 2.5 at 1.53[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Callum Wilson came up with his 12th goal of the campaign in the big win over Brighton. It happens to be his first goal in four games for the Cherries. The England forward came up with a brace against Fulham in the reverse encounter and his physical presence will be hard to deal for Fulham, who could have conceded at the hands of Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the recent game. Our first goalscorer prediction would opt for Callum Wilson.
