Bitesize Prediction: Bournemouth vs Wolves – 31/08/22

Competition: Premier League

Market: Wolves win

Odds: 11/10 @ 888sport

Hoping to pick up their first Premier League win of the season on Wednesday night, Wolves will make the trip to Bournemouth.

Starting with the hosts, while Bournemouth might have marked their Premier League return with a stellar display on the south coast, the Cherries have really failed to keep up that momentum. Despite extending on their EFL Cup run thanks to a penalties victory away at Championship outfit Norwich last week, Scott Parker’s side immediately came crashing back down to earth. Now tipped as a standout pick to be hit with an immediate second-tier return this season, the former Fulham boss saw his side put in a woeful performance over the weekend. Hit with an embarrassing 9-0 drumming away at Premier League giants Liverpool on Saturday afternoon, Bournemouth have now lost each of their last three top-flight outings. Likewise, it should also be noted, Parker’s side have shipped 16 goals on that three-match losing run.

As for the visitors, after being left heartbroken on home soil over the weekend as they had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Newcastle, Wolves are really seeking a boost here. While Bruno Lage’s men might have come past Championship side Preston thanks to a 2-1 victory on August 23rd, the ex-Benfica boss is still waiting for his first Premier League victory. However, despite battling it out at the foot of the table, there is no doubt that the Midlands-based outfit should be smelling a golden chance on Wednesday night. Likewise, claiming a 1-0 victory when they last faced off against Bournemouth at Molineux, it should be highlighted that Wolves are unbeaten in each of their last four meetings against the Cherries. Given that eye-catching record, we’re backing an away win at the Vitality in midweek.
