The Cherries have been in solid form at the Vitality Stadium but Nuno Espirito Santo's side should have enough firepower to get on the scoresheet

There are only two 3pm kick-offs on Saturday's Premier League coupon but one of them looks to offer plenty of value.

Bournemouth lost back-to-back trips to Cardiff City and Liverpool but in front of their own fans the Cherries have won three of their last four games, including a 4-0 thumping of Chelsea.

Despite that, they're 9/5 (2.80) outsiders with 888Sport for this game.

Wolves are made marginal favourites at 8/5 (2.60) having won four of their last five games in all competitions. The draw is 47/20 (3.35) with the same firm.

As the odds suggest, this match is tough to call with any degree of certainty. Instead, punters should look to the both teams to score market in search of value.

Having netted in 11 of their 13 home Premier League games this season, Bournemouth rarely struggle to score at this ground, even in defeat.

The absence of Callum Wilson and David Brooks is a blow for Eddie Howe’s side but Joshua King, Ryan Fraser and recent arrival Dominic Solanke should pose plenty of threat going forward.

Wolves have been free-scoring of late too, hitting 11 goals in their last four league matches but the defence hasn’t been on top form. Both teams to score has been a regular winner in their matches this season, especially on the road.

Nuno Espirito Santo's men have seen goals at both ends in six of their previous seven Premier League away games. A repeat here is 41/50 (1.82) with 888Sport and that looks well worth backing given that both sides look much more comfortable going forward than they do at the back.

Over 2.5 goals is also worth consideration at the bigger price of 11/10 (2.10) with the same firm based on that logic. It’s paid out in five of the visitors’ last seven top-flight matches but the shorter odds available on BTTS on the south coast is the best option for punters.
