The value looks with the visitors in Saturday's Premier League clash at Dean Court.
Bournemouth v Hull - Saturday 15:00
Bournemouth have been steadily improving of late and their only defeat in their last five matches came against Pep Guardiola’s Man City. Jack Wilshere has been getting slightly better with each game and having had the international break to work on his fitness, Cherries fans will hope there is much more to come. Against Hull, he will be the most talented player on the pitch and should be expected to pull the strings, especially in the absence of major injury doubt Harry Arter.
Hull have failed to win in their last five matches, losing four of these games, and it feels like the excellent start they made to the season was a long time ago. However, it should be noted that these defeats came against Man Utd, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea. Mike Phelan will know his side needs to put some points on the board in their upcoming fixtures, all of which look winnable.
Whilst Bournemouth deservedly start this game as favourites we think Hull’s difficult run of recent games has clouded the bookies’ judgement somewhat and as such the value lies in backing the away side. The international break came at a good time for Hull and though they had 10 players away on duty, the same was true for Bournemouth with 11. At 7.0, we’re backing Hull to win by a solitary goal, and with six goals in nine matches for club and country, Robert Snodgrass to score anytime looks an attractive price at 6.5. The Scot is in charge of set pieces and almost all of Hull’s attacks go through him so if they do win he’ll probably have played a large part.
