Bournemouth v Chelsea Betting: Free-scoring hosts can ensure goals galore once more

With the Cherries still more comfortable going forward than at the back, Al Hain-Cole is expecting plenty of action when they take on Conte's men

After scoring late to earn a point at Liverpool, Bournemouth will be hoping to pull off another shock result when they welcome Chelsea to the Vitality Stadium.

That 2-2 draw means the Cherries have not lost in five league matches for the first time since December 2015, and they're available at 5/1 (6.00) with dabblebet to match their best ever Premier League unbeaten streak by coming out on top against the leaders.

However, Antonio Conte’s men have won six of the eight previous encounters between these sides, and are clear 6/10 (1.60) favourites to emerge victorious once again here.

None of those eight previous meetings have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 3/1 (4.00) on them cancelling each other out on this occasion.

While they were not able to maintain their improved defensive resilience enough to keep a third consecutive clean sheet in the draw on Merseyside, Eddie Howe's side struck twice for the third time in four matches to come away with a highly creditable point.

With more goals to their name than Manchester United so far, attack has rarely been an issue for Howe’s team this season. However, it is at the other end of the pitch where they have often been found wanting.

Although they may fancy their chances of having some joy against a Blues team that has now gone eight league games without a clean sheet, the fact they have conceded two goals or more in six of their last seven home games suggests the hosts will do well to keep things together at the back.

Considering there have been eight goals scored in just the previous two meetings between the teams, odds of 5/6 (1.83) appear more than fair on over 2.5 going in here, in a bet that would have paid out in each of Chelsea’s last five league games.

Over 2.5 goals for a 2.5pt stake at 5/6 (1.83) with dabblebet
