Bournemouth vs Aston Villa: Top free betting tips
Bournemouth face Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon with both teams coming into the game in decent form. Despite their impressive start to the season, our Bournemouth vs Aston Villa prediction is for the Villains to drop points away from home. Andoni Iraola has got Bournemouth playing much better in recent weeks, which makes the Vitality Stadium a tricky fixture.
Match result prediction: Draw
Bournemouth have won their last two Premier League fixtures after a poor start to the season while Aston Villa have only lost one of their last eleven matches in all competitions. Unai Emery's men have struggled more away from home, however, which makes us believe there is a result here for Bournemouth.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Aston Villa have been one of the most entertaining teams in the Premier League season with only Manchester City scoring more goals than them. They have, however, also been leaky at the back, conceding more goals than any other club in the top seven. Bournemouth, meanwhile, have scored at least one goal in their last six matches in all competitions.
Correct score prediction: 1-1
Both teams will go into the game full of confidence after recent results but Bournemouth have a couple of advantages. Firstly, they are playing in front of their home fans and secondly, they have had a full week to prepare for the fixture while Aston Villa were in Europa Conference League action on Thursday night so will have some tired legs in their ranks.

Bournemouth vs Aston Villa: What the fans think
Cherries want to see pace in the team
With that high line Villa play I wouldn’t mind a bit of Sinisterra a little earlier at the weekend. We will be forced back and perhaps a little uncomfortably at times but those precision balls over the top with well timed runs could be diamond! #afcb pic.twitter.com/TrDVmDHPHI

Villa fans exercising caution
They've picked up recently. Sunday's game will be tough. Would be happy with a point & no injuries before we play City & Arsenal.
