Bournemouth (7-4-8) vs. Liverpool (13-6-1)
Bournemouth vs. Liverpool 1/21/24 – Bournemouth take on Liverpool in an intriguing English Premier League clash that promises to excite soccer enthusiasts, attracting a large viewing audience eager to witness this epic showdown between these two clubs. As soccer analysts and enthusiasts pick their multi-expert predictions for this matchup, excitement builds exponentially as it underlines why so many watch this league year after year.
Bournemouth’s offensive gameplay this season has been anything but consistent. Dominic Solanke led their attack with 12 goals and 1 assist from 19 starts – an impressive stat which speaks for itself! 22 out of his 66 shots on target converted is also indicative of Dominic Solanke’s finishing skills. Additionally, Antoine Semenyo and Philip Billing played key roles for Bournemouth; however they face Liverpool’s formidable defense led by goalkeeper Alisson Becker who boasts 51 saves in 18 starts with 6 clean sheets – something Alisson has done time after time during 18 starts to prove formidable.
Liverpool boasts an intimidating offensive lineup. Mohamed Salah stands out as a constant threat with 14 goals and 9 assists from 20 starts, while Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota, with their combined 10 goals and 8 assists, make Liverpool one of the league’s premier attacks. These formidable attacking forces will challenge Bournemouth’s defensive setup heavily reliant upon goalkeeper Andrei Radu who, while resilient overall this season, appears vulnerable when facing high-calibre attacks.

Andrei Radu GK vs. Alisson Becker GK
Bournemouth sends out Andrei Radu with just two Premier League starts under his belt this season. In his limited action, he’s already been exposed, conceding seven times while making only five saves. His lack of experience shows vulnerability against prolific attacking sides. He’ll face one of the more clinical offenses in Liverpool, who lead the league in scoring this season. Liverpool’s attack features ruthless finishers who thrive on opportunities like a shaky opposing keeper. Just one clean sheet for this young goalkeeper suggests Liverpool’s scorers should have plenty of chances on Sunday.
In the other net stands Alisson Becker. Liverpool’s goalie has started every match this season, conceding 14 times across over 1600 minutes. His 51 saves and six clean sheets show the high-level consistency he provides Liverpool each match. However, his stats have dipped recently. Over his last five games, he’s allowed multiple goals three times after allowing more than one just twice in his previous 13 starts. His vulnerability of late means if Bournemouth can send numbers forward and test him from inside the box, they could notch a couple goals.
Soccer Odds/Point Spread: Liverpool -169, Total Odds: 3.5
The betting odds indicate Liverpool as the clear favorites with a moneyline of -169, and the point spread sets Liverpool at -1 (-104). The total for the game is pegged at 3.5, reflecting expectations of a high-scoring affair. Bettors leaning towards Liverpool would find value in their consistent performance and strong offensive capabilities. However, the unpredictability of the Premier League often springs surprises, and this game could be no different.
Bournemouth Betting Trends
Bournemouth is 1-2 straight up in their last five but 3-2 against the spread. They score and allow goals in bunches at home, going over the total in five of nine home matches this year. In their last encounter with Liverpool, Bournemouth conceded nine times. But with two weeks to prepare, don’t expect a similar result.
Liverpool Betting Trends
Liverpool is 3-2 straight up but just 2-3 ATS over their last five games. Their high-powered attack has led to four overs during this stretch, but they have conceded eight goals in their last three road games. The trends point to an open, back-and-forth contest on Sunday.
Bournemouth vs. Liverpool 01/21/24 Betting Picks
Considering the statistical analysis and betting trends, Liverpool seems to have the upper hand in this matchup. Their offensive firepower and defensive resilience, combined with Bournemouth’s struggles against high-quality opposition, tilt the odds in their favor. However, the unpredictable nature of the Premier League always leaves room for surprises. As a pick, I lean towards Liverpool to win, but I also anticipate a closely contested match, possibly with both teams scoring.
For those looking at prop bets or over/under, the likelihood of a high-scoring game seems plausible, given both teams’ offensive capabilities and recent trends. Therefore, betting on the over might be a worthwhile consideration. Overall, in this EPL no-cost picks scenario, we would predict a scoreline favoring Liverpool, possibly a 3-1 victory.
