Bournemouth are at a substantially shorter price to win this match, but Eddie Howe’s men have not been playing well in recent games – despite the recent win over Huddersfield. The Reds are emerging as the real title contenders alongside Manchester City and just two points separate them from the defending champions going into the festive fixtures. Liverpool have had some huge wins over Bournemouth in recent years and our preview would go with a win for the visitors.

Bournemouth vs Liverpool draw odds: 4.20
Bournemouth win odds: 5.50
Correct Score odds
Liverpool have been able to score three goals in the last two league outings, but the Reds have certainly not been at their best in both matches. However, they may be quietly confident about taking on a Bournemouth outfit that has lost four out of the recent five games. This run has severely dented Bournemouth’s confidence and they came close to dropping points against Huddersfield in the midweek match. Our first goalscorer prediction would back a 2-1 win for Liverpool.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Bournemouth have been involved in a 2-1 score in four out of the last five matches. Only Manchester City have been able to score more than two goals past the Cherries in recent times. Even though Liverpool are not the best team going forward in away matches, Callum Wilson and other Bournemouth players have enjoyed a good run of form in front of goal. Our total goals prediction sees value in backing over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Callum Wilson extended his wonderful scoring streak by coming up with the opener against Huddersfield. He has now scored in five out of the last nine games for Bournemouth. However, Mohamed Salah may be a better choice to open the scoring after being rested for the midweek match against Burnley. The Egyptian has seven league goals this season. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Salah.
