Bournemouth v Luton: Predictions, Tips and Odds

Luton have shown they are up for the battle as they look to avoid relegation from the Premier League and they would receive a big lift on Wednesday if they could gain a victory at Bournemouth.

Three points would be enough to lift Rob Edwards’ Hatters out of the bottom three as they head to the south coast for a fixture which was originally abandoned in December when Luton skipper Tom Lockyer suffered a cardiac arrest.

The Cherries were on a roll then, but their form towards the end of 2023 is becoming a bit of a distant memory.

Andoni Iraola’s team will be anxious to get back to winning ways after claiming a victory in just one of their last six league matches at the Vitality Stadium. They also needed a late goal to earn a 2-2 home draw with bottom-of-the-table Sheffield United on Saturday.

Bournemouth v Luton betting tips and predictions

Luton or draw double chance - 6/4

Luton head to Bournemouth having won just one of their last nine league games, but the Cherries’ own indifferent record should provide the Bedfordshire outfit with some confidence.

While victories have been hard to come by for the Hatters, they have gone toe-to-toe with some of the best teams in the Premier League and shown they are up for the fight and they can be expected to take the game to Bournemouth on Wednesday night.

A string of fine results in the last few weeks of 2023 lifted the Cherries out of danger, but they have been unable to build on that and could slip back into trouble if their slide continues much longer.

They had to come from two-goals behind to earn a 2-2 draw with Sheffield United on Saturday and this could prove to be a tougher assignment against a team who have scored in nine of their last 10 league games on the road.

Luton’s only defeat in their last five away matches came at Liverpool while the Cherries have won just one of their last six home outings, so it could be worth chancing the visitors in the double-chance market where a win for the Hatters or a draw would be a winning bet.

Over 3.5 goals - 11/10

Luton have earned many friends with their positivity, especially in games against the big boys - Arsenal needed an injury-time winner to beat them and Liverpool required a late goal to earn a point on their visit to Kenilworth Road.

And they have not sat back when they have been on their travels either, so that points to a high-scoring game at the Vitality on Wednesday.

Seven of Luton’s last 10 league outings have featured at least four goals and they should still be buzzing after Cauley Woodrow earned them what could be a crucial point with a last-gasp goal at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Cherries have found home clean sheets hard to come by - they have kept just two in their last 10 league games on their own patch, but they still have the ability to make their presence felt at the other end.

Expect Wednesday’s match to feature over 3.5 goals, just as Bournemouth’s clash with Sheffield United did at the weekend.

Dominic Solanke over 1.5 shots on target - 5/6

The Cherries could have had more than a point to show for their efforts against the Blades had Dominic Solanke not ballooned a penalty over the bar, but the former Liverpool striker should still play a prominent role in Wednesday’s match.

In fairness to the striker, he did slip when he took the kick and he did have another effort disallowed when the score was 2-0, so despite failing to find the net in his last three matches, the forward who has scored 14 times in the league this season still knows where the goal is.

He has had a total of 28 shots on target this season and in a game which looks set to be an open encounter - he scored in the original abandoned fixture - he should muster at least a couple of goal-bound efforts.
