Is Bournemouth v QPR on TV?
Bournemouth have made a flying start upon their return to the second-tier, winning three and drawing one of their opening four league games under new manager Jason Tindall.
QPR, meanwhile, sit in ninth on five points, as Mark Wurburton’s side adjust to life without last season’s talisman Eberechi Eze.
Bournemouth are odds-on favourites at 8/11 to win the match. The draw is 14/5, with a QPR win 15/4.
With Friday representing English football’s domestic transfer deadline day, it remains to be seen whether Joshua King will still be a Bournemouth player when QPR travel to Dorset on Saturday.
The Norway striker has featured just once from the bench for the Cherries this season, with West Ham United reportedly having a £13m bid rejected earlier this week.
Warburton, it seems, meanwhile, is still keen to bolster the Hoops’ ranks, with Aden Flint and Wato Kuate linked with a move to Loftus Road. Albert Adomah, Chris Willock and Charlie Kelman have already joined during the international break.
While QPR have impressed in spells, retaining more possession than their opponents in three of their four matches, they have remained defensively naive at times.
With that in mind, Bournemouth look fairly priced favourites to me. Having switched to a 5-3-2 formation under Tindall, they’ve looked more defensively savvy while retaining the goal threat which characterised the Eddie Howe era.
Jefferson Lerma in particular looks a Rolls Royce of a midfielder at this level. The Colombia international has generally been most known for picking up an astonishing amount of yellow cards throughout his career, and may be worth backing to pick up another here with referee John Brooks in charge.
However, with two goals and an assist in four league games, Lerma may be on the track to changing the general perception of him as a footballer. There’s no doubting his talent.
Both teams to score, meanwhile, has landed in six of the combined eight matches these sides have competed in so far this season, making 17/20 (William Hill) for it to happen here look a good price.
Bournemouth to win and both teams to score, then, may well be very good value at 11/4 (bet365).
