Luton v Bournemouth: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Luton will be eyeing a crucial three points when they welcome Bournemouth to Kenilworth Road for a vital Premier League fixture on Saturday.

The Hatters find themselves 18th in the table, three points adrift of Nottingham Forest, while Bournemouth's five-game unbeaten run has lifted them into contention for a European finish.

Luton v Bournemouth betting tips and predictions

Luton to win - 11/4

Despite failing to win any of their last 10 Premier League games, Luton are just three points from safety and they can pile the pressure on 17th-place Nottingham Forest, who travel to Tottenham on Sunday, with a welcome success over Bournemouth.

The Hatters have been hit by injuries in recent weeks, notably in defence, but they have still managed to put in good accounts of themselves in defeats to Spurs and Arsenal.

Rob Edwards' side have been slightly better at home this season, collecting 12 of their 22 points at Kenilworth Road, and they drew 1-1 with Forest in their most recent outing at Kenilworth Road.

Luton will also have revenge on their mind against Bournemouth, who recovered from 3-0 down at half-time in March's reverse fixture at the Vitality Stadium to triumph 4-3.

The Cherries have racked up two more victories since that comeback success, extending their unbeaten run to five matches to put them in the mix for a possible European finish.

However, Andoni Iraola's side have won just one of their last five away fixtures in the league and may be ground down at a hostile Kenilworth Road.

Over 3.5 goals - 6/5

Luton have provided plenty of entertainment this season, scoring 43 goals and conceding 64 in the league, and another high-scoring affair could be on the cards in Bedfordshire.

Over 3.5 goals has been a winning bet in four of the Hatters' last six home league assignments, while the same bet has been successful in five of Bournemouth's last seven away outings in all competitions.

With Luton desperate for the points and the Cherries needing the win to boost their European hopes, expect another attacking game similar to the one on the south coast less than a month ago.

Tahith Chong anytime goalscorer - 7/2

Luton have shared the goals around this season, with no player reaching double figures in the league yet, and one Hatter who has found his shooting boots of late is Tahith Chong.

The 24-year-old has really grown into Edwards' side since his summer arrival from Birmingham and he has netted three times in his last six appearances, most recently in the 2-1 loss at Spurs.

Chong came on as a second-half substitute in Wednesday's defeat against Arsenal at the Emirates and that could be because Edwards wanted him to be as fresh as possible for Saturday's meeting with Bournemouth.

Available at 7/2 to score at any time, the Dutch ace looks capable of adding to his goal tally as Luton seek a vital three points in their survival fight.
