Bournemouth 19/20 to beat Peterborough United in Wednesday’s Championship contest

Competition: Championship

Market: Bournemouth win

Odds: 19/20 @ 888sport

Two sides who will find the moods in their camp at a polar opposite, Bournemouth will make the trip to Peterborough United on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Peterborough might have managed to shock many with their 3-0 win against Birmingham earlier in the month, it appears that was just a minor boost for the Posh. Already battling it out at the foot of the Championship table and with many tipping them to be hit with an immediate League One return, Darren Ferguson’s men were last seen over the weekend getting hit with a drumming on the road. Suffering a 3-0 loss away at a high-flying Coventry after a nightmare second-half display, Peterborough will know that they face a stern test at London Road in midweek. Gaining a reputation for their issues at the back, a run highlighted by a 6-2 defeat against Sheffield United, it should be noted that Wednesday’s hosts have lost five of their last six Championship matchups on either side of the international break.

As for the visitors, while Peterborough might be in the midst of a real nightmare, the same cannot be said for a high-flying Bournemouth. With their sights set on securing an immediate Premier League return, the Cherries have really managed to find their feet under new boss Scott Parker. Last seen over the weekend when putting in a gritty display, the south coast outfit landed a 2-1 win against Luton on home soil and they have now won each of their last four matchups on the spin. Storming their way to top spot in the Championship and riding a real high, the former Fulham manager should be smelling a golden chance on their travels in midweek. Given the huge recent gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing an away win on Wednesday night.
