Why you should back Newcastle
The Magpies are one of the highest-scoring teams in the Premier League. They have scored 27 goals, which ranks second in the league, behind only top-of-the-table Manchester City (28). Newcastle have scored 19 goals in their last six league matches. Callum Wilson leads the team and ranks fourth in the league with seven goals despite having started just five games this season.
The Magpies have a good matchup against the Bournemouth defense. The Cherries have conceded 27 goals this season, which is tied for the second most in the league, better than only bottom-of-the-table Sheffield United (30). Bournemouth are coming off their worst defensive performance of the season, allowing six goals to Manchester City. See which team to pick here.
Why you should back Bournemouth
The Cherries have played well at home this season. Five of the six points Bournemouth have earned this season have come at Vitality Stadium. In their last league home game, on Oct. 28 against Burnley, the Cherries rallied from a one-goal deficit to score a stunning 2-1 victory.
In addition, Bournemouth face a Newcastle side that will be missing a key player on Saturday. Midfielder Bruno Guimarães is suspended after he picked up his fifth yellow card of the season last weekend. His absence will be missed, as he is the Magpies’ enforcer in the midfield.
