AFC Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest betting tips: Preview, predictions & odds


Bournemouth to win and over 2.5 goals (15/8)

Bournemouth have a great defensive record this season, conceding less than a goal per game on average,  but are prone to conceding goals at home.

The Cherries have failed to keep a clean sheet at the Vitality in 75 percent of their games there.

Scott Parker's side are also full of goals averaging 1.63 goals per game, therefore, plenty of goals are expected on Friday evening.

Dominic Solanke to score anytime (5/4)

Solakne is once again enjoying a fruitful season in front of goal.

The striker has netted 19 times in the Championship this term.

He is Bournemouth's leading scorer and he will be hoping to find the back of net again on Friday.

The Cherries are firmly placed 2nd in the Championship and lead Blackburn by four points and two games in hand.

Nottingham Forest held by Stoke

Nottingham Forest were held to a frustrating draw with Stoke on Saturday.

Forest took the lead through Brennan Johnson only to be pegged back by a Josh Maja goal.

Brice Samba then produced a moment of madness as he hit out at Phil Jagikela.

However, Steve Cooper's side found another gear and Ryan Yates equalised in stoppage time.

The point leaves Forest 7th in the Championship and two points off the playoffs.
