Bournemouth vs Luton: Top free betting tips

A relegation six-pointer is set to take place on Saturday afternoon when Bournemouth welcome Luton to the Vitality Stadium, but who is going to come out on top? Our Bournemouth vs Luton prediction is for Bournemouth to record a narrow victory and to start thinking about a top-half finish rather than relegation.

Match result prediction: Bournemouth to win

Bournemouth got off to a terrible start to the season under Andoni Iraola and there were even calls for him to be sacked after the Cherries were winless after nine Premier League games. However, after beating Burnley they haven't looked back and they are now unbeaten in five games with four wins and a draw. Luton at home is a friendly-enough fixture for a team in form so we expect Bournemouth to get the job done.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Luton Town have surprised a few people already this season with how potent they are on the counterattack. That threat has seen them score at least one goal in seven of their last eight matches and they are yet to blank against a team in the bottom half of the Premier League table. Therefore, it would be somewhat of a surprise if they failed to score on Saturday.

Correct score prediction: Bournemouth 3-1 Luton

Bournemouth scored three goals away at Manchester United last time out and as a result, they will be full of confidence coming into this match. We are backing Iraola's men to match that feat at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday afternoon but for Luton to be in the match for long periods and to get a goal for themselves, too.

Bournemouth vs Luton team news

Bournemouth predicted lineup vs Luton

Although winning at Old Trafford isn't the scalp it once was, you would still be foolish to change a team that has just recorded a 3-0 away from home. Iraola doesn't appear to have any fresh injury concerns after the win against United while the likes of Tyler Adams, Alex Scott, Llloyd Kelly are Max Aaarons are all no closer to being fit again. Dominic Solanke had an excellent game at Old Trafford and he will be the Cherries' main threat again here.

Neto – Smith, Zabarnyi, Senesi, Kerkez – Cook, Christie – Semenyo, Kluivert, Tavernier – Solanke

Luton predicted lineup vs Bournemouth

Luton came close to beating both Arsenal and Man City last week but ultimately came away with nothing despite having the lead in both matches. Issa Kabore is expected to come back into the starting eleven after missing the game against Man City due to ineligibility but Marvelous Nakamba is unavailable due to suspension. Sambi Lokonga is the most likely replacement for Nakamba as Luton look to bridge the gap on the teams above them.

Kaminshi – Kabore, Osho, Mengi, Lockyer, Doughty – Nakamba, Barkley – Townsend, Adebayo, Brown

How far will Luton fans travel to Bournemouth?

The trip to the Vitality Stadium is often the longest for many teams in the Premier League but that isn't the case for Luton supporters. The distance between Luton and Bournemouth is around 120 miles and will take the travelling Hatters around two hours if they drive or get on the coach. The route via train is more complex as Luton fans will have to find their way to Waterloo station before they are able to board a direct train to Bournemouth.
