Bournemouth and Leicester City are almost a similar position as they meet for the Premier League encounter at the Vitality Stadium this weekend. The Cherries look to recover from the first defeat of the season, while Leicester City suffered a home defeat for the first time this season. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

Bournemouth were unable to come up with anything to take points off Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The team went on to suffer a 2-0 defeat against the blues.

Leicester City were unable to use home advantage to break Jurgen Klopp Liverpool, who ran out 2-1 winners at the King Power Stadium. This was the first defeat for Leicester since the loss against Manchester United on the opening day.

The recent meeting between Bournemouth and Leicester produced a 1-1 draw at the King Power Stadium. A goalless draw was the outcome when these two teams last met each other at the Vitality Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions would choose a draw.

Match odds

Leicester City and Bournemouth are almost closely placed to each other in terms of odds but a better option would be to choose a stalemate in this game. It is quite incredible that more than 80% of the meetings between these two teams in the last three years have finished as a draw. Both teams have reasons to go for a stalemate and this is especially true in the case of Leicester City, who have already suffered an away defeat this season. Our preview would pick a draw.

Bournemouth win odds: 2.37

Leicester City win odds: 3.00

Correct Score odds

The last six meetings between these two teams have produced an aggregate score of 4-3. Hence, this is a fixture that has not been about goals. There is little reason to expect the situation would change in the upcoming meeting, as both clubs have had the same figures from the opening four matches – six goals scored and five conceded. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

The last high-scoring game between Bournemouth and Leicester City took place in 2013 when the foxes were able to secure a narrow 2-1 win. This also happens to be the only high-scoring meeting between the two teams in recent memory. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Callum Wilson played the full 90 minutes against Chelsea without scoring a goal, but he has been able to find himself in good positions this season. The forward already has been able to help himself to two goals this season, and he is searching for his first goal against Leicester since 2015. Incidentally, this goal happened at the Vitality Stadium. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Wilson.
