AFC Bournemouth vs Luton Town

Vitality Stadium will host a postponed Premier League game between Bournemouth and Luton Town, the two bottom-table sides. The Cherries came from two goals behind to share the spoils with Sheffield United at the weekend and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. All Fredericks, Hill, Aarons, Kelly, and Senesi are sidelined with injuries, while both Dango Ouattara and Enes Unal are pushing for a start after the duo got their names on the scoresheet against the Blades.

The Hatters, on the other hand, are fighting tooth and nail to avoid relegation to the Championship. Luton Town showed character in a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace, with substitute Cauley Woodrow scoring the equalizer in the stoppage time. The 29-year-old should be recalled to the starting XI, while Gabriel Osho has overcome a minor muscle injury. Anyhow, over 2.5 goals betting option should be considered as both sides are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the midweek clash.

How the bookies view it

Despite their recent poor run, Bournemouth are still considered overwhelming favourites among the bookies at 11/20 with YYslot. A victory for Luton Town is valued at 9/2 by BetVictor while a draw is set at odds of 7/2.

AFC Bournemouth x Luton Town

Head to head

Bournemouth have an 11-6 advantage with six draws from 23 previous matches against Luton Town. The Cherries claimed a 2-1 victory the last time they hosted Luton in a Championship clash back in 2021.

Players to watch

Dominic Solanke will have a few things to make up for after missing a penalty and seeing a goal chalked off by VAR last time out against Sheffield United. The striker is Bournemouth’s leading scorer with 14 goals and is priced at evens by YYslot to get on the score sheet.

Carlton Morris remains the biggest attacking threat for Luton Town and will be looking to add to his eight goals this season. The striker has found the net five times in his last eight matches and is priced at 9/4 by Unibet to maintain his scoring run.

Recent Meetings

  • Bournemouth have a great home record in this matchup. They won 8, drew 2, and lost only 2 of the previous 12 home outings against the Hatters.
  • We’ve seen two home wins in the head-to-head clashes between these rivals in the 2021/22 Championship campaign.
  • Six of the last nine head-to-head matches provided three or more goals.

Bournemouth vs Luton Prediction

This match has goals in it. Neither team have done well defensively of late. Bournemouth kept just one clean sheet in the last nine games across competitions. They allowed nine shots on target in the home match against Sheffield United on Saturday.

That being said, we see the Cherries as firm favourites in this tie. Luton’s back line has been all over the place of late. The Hatters allowed at least three goals in five of the previous seven matches across competitions. They left top much space at the back at the weekend as well away at Crystal Palace.

Bournemouth also own a great home record in this matchup. We have to take the Home win & Both Teams To Score pick at the 2.62 odds.

Bournemouth’s top scorer Dominic Solanke missed a penalty and had a goal disallowed at the weekend against Sheffield United. He will have a great opportunity to make amends just four days later against the leaky Luton defence.

Big Dom has 14 goals to his name in this term of the Premier League. We see the value in backing him to score anytime against Luton at the 2.00 odds.
