Peterborough vs Bournemouth – Posh to return to winning ways

| 31.03.2011

Peterborough may have failed to find the target in their last game in front of the television cameras, but 5/6 seems a solid price in the League One betting that they will have no such problems against Bournemouth and take the three points.

Match Odds

Posh lost 1-0 at MK Dons recently when on Sky, but this was just because of some poor finishing rather than a lack of creativity in creating chances.

Back at London Road, Peterborough are far more prolific, scoring 33 goals in their last ten home games, which have resulted in eight wins and two draws.

A victory is also needed against Bournemouth to keep up the pressure on Huddersfield in the second League One automatic promotion place, as Peterborough’s failure to win of their last two games has seen them lose ground.

Bournemouth had sat in second for a long period earlier in the season, but three defeats in four fixtures has resulted in them just clinging on to a spot in the play-off places.

Bournemouth’s betting odds are 10/3 to beat Peterborough and they have already hammered the opposition 5-1 earlier this season.

Before this meeting at Bournemouth in August, the last five meetings between the pair had been won by the away side.

The draw can be backed at 12/5, but it has been 14 meetings since the pair witnessed a result end all square.

First Goalscorer

Although League One’s top goalscorer Craig Mackail-Smith is the obvious threat for Peterborough, Bournemouth may also have to be weary of George Boyd.

Boyd has scored five goals in Peterborough’s last three home games and is 11/2 to break the deadlock against Bournemouth.

Mackail-Smith is 4/1 in this market, while Lee Tomlin may be worth considering at the bigger odds of 6/1.

A £20 stake on the scorecast of Peterborough beating Bournemouth 3-1 and Boyd scoring first would return £. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of free bets totalling up to £60.
