Betting Tips for the game
Bournemouth were thrashed 5-1 by an Arsenal team at the Emirates Stadium as the Cherries extended their poor sequence of results on this ground. Bournemouth have also lost six out of the last 10 league matches.
A penalty from Sergio Aguero was the only difference between Manchester City and West Ham when the two teams took on each other at the Etihad Stadium. This game may have been too close to comfort, but Guardiola’s team have now picked up seven consecutive wins in all competitions.
City were able to register a 3-1 success over Bournemouth in the reverse fixture at the Etihad Stadium. Manchester City had to work much harder in order to pick up a 2-1 victory in their last visit to the Vitality Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Manchester City.

Bournemouth have been disastrous over the last few months. Apart from the odd victories, it has been a sea of defeats for Eddie Howe and his team. If not for a brilliant start to the season, the Cherries may be finding themselves in the relegation battle and Howe would also be struggling to keep himself in the job. Manchester City remain in pursuit of Liverpool, who are just one point ahead. The midweek win over West Ham may have been very close, but City have been able to destroy most of the opponents who have come their way. Our preview would go with a win for the hosts.

Correct Score odds
Manchester City have claimed six consecutive wins against Bournemouth and City have conceded just two goals in all of the meetings against this opponent in this decade. It is quite an impressive record that can only extend further given Bournemouth’s struggles. City have kept three consecutive clean sheets in the league but a home game gives a reason to expect goals from Bournemouth. Our correct score prediction would go with a 3-1 win for Manchester City.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
It is quite a surprise that Manchester City have witnessed under 2.5 goals over the last two matches in all competitions, but this trend is unlikely to pursue any further considering the defensive struggles faced by Bournemouth this season. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Sergio Aguero is in a remarkable form that has now seen him get 18 league goals. The Argentine has come up with at least a goal in seven out of his last nine appearances in all competitions. Aguero missed the reverse fixture against Bournemouth, but he did score a brace in the last game against this club. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Sergio Aguero.
