Bitesize Prediction: Bournemouth vs Luton – 16/12/23

Competition: Premier League

Market: Bournemouth win

Odds: 8/15 @ Pribet

Looking to extend on their remarkable Premier League purple patch this weekend, Bournemouth will welcome Luton to the Vitality on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Bournemouth might have opened up the 2023/24 campaign in the midst of a public struggle, the Cherries have come roaring back in some style. Last seen putting in a famous performance as they stormed their way to a stunning 3-0 romp away at Manchester United, Andoni Iraola’s side are riding a remarkable wave of momentum. Skyrocketing their way up the Premier League standings and with the mood around the Vitality at a red-hot high, the former Rayo Vallecano boss will simply be calling on his squad to make another top-flight statement here. Heading into November’s international break with a deserved 2-0 victory against Champions League outfit Newcastle, Bournemouth have now collected 13 points from their previous five Premier League appearances. Finding a major clinical edge in the final third and notching 12 strikes on their five-match unbeaten run, the Cherries should be smelling another real opportunity when they return to the south coast this weekend.

As for the visitors, while Luton might have continued to gain a string of praise since securing a famous Premier League return, the Hatters are facing a real uphill battle in their bid to avoid the drop. Suffering major heartbreak last weekend as they eventually collapsed to a 2-1 defeat at home against defending champions Manchester City, Rob Edwards’ side have collected just a single win from any of their previous 10 appearances – a run that stems all the way back to September 30th. In fact, losing their last three Premier League showdowns on the bounce, Luton have also continued to show some worrying defensive issues. Including a remarkable 4-3 loss at the hands of title contenders Arsenal earlier in the month, the former Watford boss has seen his squad ship 32 goals in their first 16 top-flight contests. Dropping back into the relegation zone and with just a single away victory to their name so far this season, the Hatters will certainly face a stern examination this weekend.
