Bournemouth were able to benefit immensely from the return of Callum Wilson, who scored the opener in the recent win over Huddersfield. The absence of the top scorer has been a major blow for Bournemouth over the last few months. Newcastle may have picked up three wins in the last five league matches but all these wins have been at home. Newcastle are winless in six away matches and it may take a while before the team starts to perform on the road. Our preview would take a win for Bournemouth.

Newcastle United win odds: 3.75
Correct Score odds
Bournemouth have had a disastrous run in which the team has lost four out of the last five matches. However, the team has always performed well at the Vitality Stadium which may be one of the few places left to get the club back into contention for a top-10 finish. Newcastle’s offence has struggled in away matches and has been able to score only three times in the last six trips. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-1 Bournemouth win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Eddie Howe has seen his Bournemouth team register a first clean sheet in six matches during the blank against Huddersfield, but the record for the team in terms of keeping out goals at the Vitality Stadium is pretty decent. Our total goals prediction would opt for over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
The return of Callum Wilson to first-team action had an instant impact with the striker scoring the opening goal in the win over Huddersfield. The 27-year-old has now taken his league tally to 11 goals and he did not seem to have any rustiness after missing more than a month. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Wilson for this match.
