Fulham v Bournemouth betting tips: Top two hard to split
Preview and odds for Friday’s match
The top two in the Championship go head-to-head and we take a look at the odds to pick out some Fulham v Bournemouth betting tips.
These two have pulled clear of the chasing pack and top spot is on the line with the hosts holding a slender one-point advantage over Scott Parker’s Cherries.
Friday’s match at Craven Cottage kicks off at 7.45pm and is live on Sky Sports.
Fulham v Bournemouth match odds
These are the two stand-out sides in the second tier this season and this promises to be an enthralling contest between the top two in our Championship winner odds to claim the title in May.
Table-toppers Fulham arrive here unbeaten in nine and have been powered to top spot by Aleksandar Mitrovic’s 21 goals in 19 appearances, while the Cherries marked themselves out as one of the teams to beat in the Championship when unbeaten in their first 15 games.
However, both sides have seen their progress stall a little of late. Both have drawn their last two, while Bournemouth have won just one of their last five, which has seen Fulham climb above them in the table.
The table doesn’t lie and these are the two highest scoring sides in the division but also two of the best defences in the league, both conceding only 16 goals in their 20 games so far.
Fulham drew 1-1 away at Preston last weekend and that scoreline is 6/1 this time, but before that they had kept six clean sheets in seven and another successful afternoon for the Cottagers back-line is 9/5.
Fulham v Bournemouth head-to-head
Bournemouth have won three of the four most recent contests between the two, but the best guide could be the two fixtures they played in the Premier League in 2018/19.
It was one victory apiece in that season, with Bournemouth running out 3-0 winners when they visited Craven Cottage.
Fulham v Bournemouth key battles
This could come down to which of Mitrovic or Bournemouth’s Dominic Solanke has their scoring boots packed, with the duo responsible for a combined 36 league goals.
For both Mitrovic and Solanke to find the net and the match to end all-square, it is 14/1 as a #YourCall special in Fulham v Bournemouth betting tips.
