Betting Tip: Leeds United to Score Two or More Goals

The Whites come into this one off an incredible victory away to Liverpool after 21-year-old, and possibly one of the greatest names in world football, Crysencio Summerville slotted an 89th minute winner to seal a 2-1 victory and hand Liverpool their first home league loss in 30 games.

It eased some pressure on Jesse Marsch but whilst he will have joined in the celebrations, he will be keen for his side to keep their foot on the pedal and showcase that kind of performance once again when they welcome Bournemouth to Elland Road.

Whilst Leeds were over the moon come Saturday night, Bournemouth were no doubt still reeling over surrendering a two goal lead and losing 3-2 to Tottenham Hotspur on home soil. It was a devastating loss and interim boss Gary O’Neil felt sorry for his players stating that "The nature of that (defeat) is tough to take for them, of course. I’m really disappointed for them, because they gave absolutely everything again.

It remains to be seen if there is any hangover from that, but even if they’re back and fully motivated, this Bournemouth side have conceded the joint-most goals in the division and are allowing the third highest shots per away game. They’re also yet to keep a single clean sheet on the road and so a trip to a buoyed Leeds United could prove to be a tricky test. The south-coast outfit have conceded at least twice in five of their six away Premier League matches and there is value in that happening once again in this clash.

Bournemouth struggle to deal with opponents who come at them with pace and intensity and that’s exactly what we’ll see from Leeds. On top of that, no side has conceded more penalties this season than Bournemouth (4) and the hosts like to drive into the box, having taken over half of their shots this season inside of the penalty area.

Leeds United have their tails up and given they’re priced up at around 7/10 at various bookmakers to score twice or more against Bournemouth, the 4/5 available for the exact same pick makes plenty of appeal.
