Bournemouth vs Sheffield United: prediction for the Premier League Week 28

The Cherries can right the ship at home on Saturday!

It will take a minor miracle for Sheffield United to keep their spot in the Premier League, as they will visit Bournemouth in Week 28. Match will begin on Saturday, March 9, at 4pm CET.

Bournemouth

The Cherries do not have much to cheer for in 2024, as the only two victories this year were the win against a hopeless Burnley last week and a “5-0” evisceration of Swansea City in FA Cup. The latter did not bring much success to the table, as Bournemouth got bounced by Leicester City in the very next round, the former gave some space in the bottom half of the standings.

Eleven points clear of the relegation zone, Bournemouth should be safe, even if they do not reach the coveted 40 points mark, but with 12 games to play, earning more than nine should be more than achievable.

Sheffield United

Especially, considering that the upcoming game is against Sheffield United, another outmatched team during this Premier League season.

While Burnley struggled on the defensive end, allowing 60 goals in a span of 27 games, the Blades took that challenge to the next level. 72 goals allowed in league, “2-5” loss to Brighton in the FA Cup, a depressing “0-6” to Arsenal last week - Derby County’s record of 89 is not going to last long.

At least, if Sheffield Wednesday keep their spot in the EFL Championship, there will be a Sheffield derby on the menu in a few months.

Prediction ⚽️

While Bournemouth is not playing particularly well in 2024, they will still be a favorite to sweep the season series, after their visit to Bramall Lane in November ended up with a “3-1” victory.

Barring a surprise, the hosts should be winning this game to solidify their spot in the table. We will go further and bet on AFC Bournemouth to cover the (-2) spread against an outmatched Sheffield United defense with hefty 2.70 odds 🔥.
