Vitality Stadium – Premier League
Bournemouth welcome Huddersfield Town to the Vitality Stadium in this Premier League preview, looking to end their slump. The Cherries have lost their last four games, while the Terriers lost their first game in four at the weekend.
Huddersfield have only scored nine goals in 14 Premier League matches so far this term. With that in mind, you can bet against both teams scoring in this football prediction at evens. Bournemouth are 19/10 with 888sport to win to nil, and 15/2 to win 2-0 in your free football betting tips.
Bournemouth to win to nil
Callum Wilson drew the Cherries level at Manchester City on Saturday with his seventh Premier League goal of the season. The England international is the 4/1 favourite to score first with Betfred in your Bournemouth vs Huddersfield predictions. He is 7/5 in the anytime market, and 21/1 to net first in a 2-0 home win.
Callum Wilson to score first
Huddersfield haven’t exactly been watertight at the back this season, conceding 24 goals in 14 games. Bournemouth have won 4-0 in two of their last four games against the Terriers. They are 35/1 to do so again in your football score predictions, rising to 83/1 with Wilson scoring first. You can get 200/1 with bet365 with him going on to score a hat-trick just like last season.

Team news and form
Last six: WWLLLL
Eddie Howe will be without two players for this game. Adam Smith has been ruled out for around three months after knee surgery, while Dan Gosling also has a knee problem. Apart from that, the Cherries boss has a full set of players as he bids to return to winning ways.
Last six: LLWDWL
Steve Mounie is suspended for this Bournemouth vs Huddersfield prediction, after a slightly harsh red card against Brighton on Saturday. Alex Pritchard felt he should’ve had a penalty in that game but faces a late fitness test for this one. Chris Lowe is definitely out though.
Bournemouth vs Huddersfield prediction, preview and betting tips
On the face of it, this one should be a comfortable home win. Bournemouth have generally impressed this season, while Huddersfield are only a point above the relegation zone. However, it’s the visitors who are in the better form ahead of this midweek Premier League fixture. Having said that, Eddie Howe’s side should have enough to get the win.
Bournemouth are 3/4 in your football predictions, as they look forward to a more favourable fixture. The Cherries have played Manchester United and Arsenal in their last two home games, while their last two on the road have been at Manchester City and Newcastle United. It’s been a tough run that’s yielded no points, but Howe can take encouragement from his team’s performances against each of the big boys.
The visitors are 91/20 in your Bournemouth v Huddersfield betting tips, and those odds are certainly influenced by the Terriers’ recent form. They beat Wolves 2-0 in their last away game, although they fell to a 2-1 home defeat to Brighton on Saturday. However, David Wagner’s side were fully in control before Mounie’s sending off. This is a tough place to come, but the Terriers won’t roll over.
The draw is 14/5. That Bournemouth v Huddersfield prediction would have to be seen as a positive result for the away team. Only Southampton have drawn more games than the Terriers this season, although there’s only been one stalemate in the last eight matches between these sides.
Joshua King is 11/2 for the first goal on Tuesday. The Norway international has five goals so far this term, with three of those coming from the penalty spot. No Huddersfield striker has managed to score once yet this season, so it could be worth looking to other areas of their team in your first goalscorer predictions. Mathias Jorgensen scored his second goal of the season in the first minute at the weekend, and the Danish defender is 40/1 to net first here.
