Fulham vs Bournemouth: Top free betting tips

Fulham will go head to head with Bournemouth on Saturday, 10 February in a match between two teams who have only won one in their last five respective matches. Fulham's season as unraveled after double cup disappointment while Bournemouth are struggling to recover after being thrashed 4-0 by Liverpool. Our Fulham v Bournemouth prediction is for a cagey affair between two out-of-form teams but for the Cherries to nick a win by a solitary goal.

Match result prediction: Bournemouth to win

The form guide tells us that both of these teams have been struggling in recent weeks and while that may be true, Bournemouth have still been showing more signs of life than Fulham. The Cherries should have been out of sight against West Ham in their last league away match before they ended up drawing while they were also the better team against Forest last time out. The result may not be there at the moment but they have shown enough on the road this season to make us believe they'll win on Saturday.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5

Marco Silva has been trying to make Fulham more defensively solid in recent weeks in a bid to turn their poor form around. It has resulted in the Cottagers playing in some dull matches and five of their last seven in all competitions have seen fewer than three goals scored. Bournemouth have been involved in more high-scoring matches over the course of the season but their last two matches have both finished 1-1.

Correct score prediction: Fulham 0-1 Bournemouth

There's a reason this game hasn't been selected for television coverage and we don't expect any broadcasters to be regretting the decision by 5pm on Saturday. This has all the hallmarks of a nervy, low-scoring match but we expect Bournemouth to just edge it due to the fact they are showing more promise in an attacking sense than Fulham at this moment in time.
