TODAY'S BEST BET | MARCH 8
We’re heading to the English Championship for today’s best bet as automatic promotion candidates Bournemouth look to return to winning ways when they host bottom of the ladder Peterborough.
Bournemouth currently occupy third spot on the table, and just one point behind Huddersfield despite playing four fewer league matches.
They succumbed to a 2-1 away defeat at the hands of Preston North End in their last outing to break a run of four consecutive league triumphs. Scott Parker’s side have been fantastic at home this season, losing just two of their home matches in the campaign thus far.
Meanwhile, Peterborough looked destined to be relegated back down to League One, sitting rock bottom of the ladder, and eight points away from the safety of not being in the relegation zone with just under a quarter of the season left to play out.
A big problem for the newly promoted side has been their lack of goal-scoring prowess. They have scored just 24 goals in 34 games this season, and have failed to score in seven of their last eight league matches.
16 of their 23 losses in this campaign have been to nil.
The meeting earlier in the season finished in a goalless stalemate at the Weston Homes Stadium. In fact, Peterborough last defeated Bournemouth in a league match in 2005.
All signs are pointing towards Bournemouth cruising to a win, with Peterborough failing to score.
- Bournemouth have won four of their last five league matches
- Peterborough have scored the least number of goals of any side in the Championship
- 16 of Peterborough’s 23 losses this season have been to nil
- Peterborough have failed to score in seven of their last eight league matches
- Bournemouth have lost only two home matches this season
