Bournemouth enjoy home advantage, when visitors Brentford swing by this coming Saturday for a Premier League clash. Having never met before in the Premier League in the 21st century, this is a first for both Bournemouth and Brentford. Any eventual head-to-head stats come from playing each other in the cup or friendlies.

Bournemouth are number 12 in the table on eight points after seven matches. Brentford rank as number nine with nine points after seven matches played.

Bournemouth can actually leapfrog Brentford in the table with a win this coming Saturday. However, judging by the prices we get from the bookmakers, this seems rather unlikely to happen.

Bournemouth go into their next Premier League match, averaging a humble one goals per game in their last ten matches, in which they scored a mundane ten times, while conceding 24 goals. That amounts to an average of 2.4 per game, where they kept their opponents from scoring two times.

Brentford enter their next Premier League match, averaging a highly satisfactory 2.2 goals per game in their last ten matches, in which they scored a presentable total of 22 goals, while also conceding 16 times. That is a total average of 1.6 per game, in which they kept their opponents from scoring two times.

Bournemouth vs Brentford Prediction

Bournemouth go into their upcoming match unbeaten in their previous three matches, which started off with a 0-0 draw against Wolverhampton. They went on to beat Nottingham F. 2-3, before sharing the spoils with Newcastle in a 1-1 draw. Bournemouth claimed a modest two wins in their past six home matches in the Premier League. They also drew two and lost two, scored six goals and conceded six.

Few people had high hopes on behalf of Bournemouth before the season, but current form sees them punching above expectations.

Brentford added four points to their collection in their last three matches, which began with a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace. A 5-2 win against Leeds followed, before a 0-3 defeat against Arsenal in their most recent match. Brentford claimed two wins against two draws and two defeats in their last six away matches in the Premier League. The scoreline from these matches reads 12 goals conceded and ten scored.

Few people had high hopes on behalf of Brentford before the season, but current form sees them punching above expectations.

Are Brentford strong enough presently to justify the prices with the bookies, even when travelling to face Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium? It could be tight, but considering form and match history, we believe the visitors represents the best betting option.
