Bournemouth vs. Manchester United
It's a clash of football styles in the live Premier League match on Saturday night when Bournemouth host Manchester United at the Goldstands Stadium in the biggest match in the clubs history.

When the sea-siders where promoted last season from the Championship this is the kind of match they dreamt about and at the time nobody would've given them any chance of a win, but let me tell you this, I think they have a great chance of upsetting the odds and the 3.60 with Coral for a home win is very tempting indeed.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is a fantastic young coach and a possible future England manager and what has impressed me is the way he's got his side to bounce back after a bad run of form, many predicted that the Cherries would plummet down the table after a run of 10 without a win, but in their last two matches, well they've been fantastic starting with a 3-3 draw at home Everton, scoring great character to score twice in injury time and then last weekend they produced their best performance of the season with a 1-0 success against champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

With just one home win all season many will think that Bournemouth are a better side and better equipped to get results away from home, I don't disagree, but they will be a very confident bunch ahead of this one and the same can't be said for the visitors.

I'm certain that many punters will see the 2.25 soccer odds with Bet365 on the 20 times champions of England up against a newly promoted Premier League side and think it's to good to be true, I'm not so sure.

Manchester United are a very poor side.Louis van Gaal is under a lot of pressure at Old Trafford and they must be low of confidence after being dumped out of the Champions League against Wolfsburg in midweek, in what looked on paper the easiest group of them all.

We all know that United have big problems scoring goals with just seven scored in their last 10 before the Wolfsburg defeat, but in Germany they defended shockingly and I just can't see them bouncing back with a win on the south coast.

Wayne Rooney is still expected to be absent for the weekend and that is the only positive I can see for visitors and if they defend anything like they did in midweek, well it's just impossible to see Bournemouth not scoring and with  United only managing to score more than one goal just three times in their last 11 matches, if they conceded the likelihood is they don't win.

I think the soccer pick is to get with the home side and take the 2.50 on Bournemouth with Coral and William Hill in the draw no bet market as United have drawn seven of their last 11 matches and that is a danger if taking the bigger price on the home side just to win the match.
