Bournemouth vs Manchester United Betting Tips

Here are our best tips for Saturday's match for which we have a range of other markets available:

The lowdown

Bournemouth have already picked up 20 points from their first 10 games and have not conceded in their last three matches against Watford, Southampton and Fulham.

Their excellent start to the campaign can be partly explained by the fact they have played just one top-six side, Chelsea in a 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge, but they can take confidence from their unbeaten home run and that prior to the weekend they had the second best attack in the expected goals table.

With a defence that has kept four clean sheets and was fifth for chances allowed in xG terms before Saturday, they have realistic expectations they can cause an upset at 49/20.

However, United are starting to gather some momentum so the first of our football tips for the weekend is Bournemouth to win draw no bet at 29/20.

Eddie Howe's side have lost this fixture in the last two years but they have been impressive against mediocre opposition - and United have certainly looked that for most of their games this season despite their upturn in fortunes.

Feature previews for this weekend

If you're interested in tips on our feature matches for the weekend, check out our in-depth previews below:

First goalscorer tips

Callum Wilson is now just two goals off the Premier League's top scorers Eden Hazard and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang following his double against Fulham.

Wilson has five goals to his name and last season scored against top-six sides Chelsea and Arsenal, opening the scoring against the Blues and bagging his side's equaliser in a 2-1 victory over the Gunners, so he has a history of scoring against quality teams.

Anytime goalscorer tips

Anthony Martial came good at 19/10 in the anytime scorer market and we fancy him to be on target again at 7/4.

The French attacker made it four goals in his last three Premier League games with a brilliant curling effort against Everton and also won the penalty from which Paul Pogba put United ahead at the second attempt.

Where the game will be won or lost

Bournemouth would have been content to soak up pressure against the big teams in previous seasons but they have emerged as one of the best attacking sides in the Premier League.

Ryan Fraser and David Brooks are dangerous and full of energy, and Callum Wilson already has five goals for the season and one in the League Cup.

With the Cherries expected to be on the front foot against a United side that is also becoming more threatening despite Alexis Sanchez being out of the side and Romelu Lukaku low on confidence, the next of our free football tips is for a penalty to be awarded at 13/5.

The ref has pointed to the spot in three of the Cherries' last four Premier League games and there were two penalties in United's 2-1 win against Everton, one of which was awarded controversially for a foul on Anthony Martial.

The last of our Bournemouth vs Manchester United predictions is for both teams to score in the second half at 13/8.

The Cherries have scored after the break in three from four, while United are on a four-match run for goals in the second half.

Both teams have scored in United's last three matches and goals are expected at both ends on Saturday, hopefully in the second half.

Team news

Bournemouth captain Simon Francis is a doubt after sustaining a slight groin problem following the Carabao Cup win over Norwich in midweek.

Norway forward Joshua King has missed the last two games with an ankle injury and will not be ready to return against his former club.

Antonio Valencia, Marouane Fellaini and Diogo Dalot are still absent for Manchester United but Jesse Lingard and Alexis Sanchez are back to full fitness.

Traders' Tips - View from the trading floor

Prior to the win against Everton, Marcus Rashford was the third most dangerous player for chances over the course of the last 10 games and he looks a good shout at 5/1 to open the scoring as he did twice for England in September.
