Saturday's Premier League Bet Builder tips: Bournemouth must beware Villans' quick getaways
- Bournemouth have scored in last five games, including against Man City and Arsenal
- Aston Villa have led at half-time in three of their last four matches
- Wolves and Leeds have each scored only once before half-time in their last six games
Bournemouth aim to build on the morale-boosting win they achieved against Liverpool last weekend when they travel to Villa Park on Saturday.
In another of the day's four Premier League games at 3pm, Wolves host a Leeds side that still appear to be finding their feet under new boss Javi Gracia.
They are the focus of our latest Saturday Bet Builder.
Cherries are good enough to peg back fast-starting Villans
Bet 1: Aston Villa to win the first half
Unai Emery's men continue to make fast starts to matches and have now scored the opening goal in seven of their last eight Premier League games.
During this span of games, Villa have been ahead at half-time four times — including three of their last four outings.
Bournemouth have scored only 12 away goals all season, but the majority of those have come after the break, thus making the hosts to lead at the interval a tempting selection here.
Bet 2: Both teams to score
The Cherries are an improving force at the moment, however, and could find the back of Villa's net at some stage in Saturday's game.
Gary O'Neil's men created several high-quality opportunities against Liverpool last weekend and scored twice in the previous weekend's dramatic defeat to Arsenal.
Both teams to score is a useful addition to the Bet Builder given it has landed in four of the Cherries' last seven Premier League games and seven of Villa's last eight at home in all competitions.
Bet 3: Douglas Luiz to receive a card in the match
With fellow midfielder Boubacar Kamara out injured, there will be more onus on Douglas Luiz to break up Bournemouth's attacks.
The Brazilian has been no stranger to the referee's notebook during his time at Villa Park, collecting an average of eight yellow cards per season in the Premier League.
He only has four to his name so far this term, plus a red card, but three have been issued in Villa's last seven games and the other came during a 12-minute cameo as a substitute in his team's 2-0 defeat to the Cherries on the opening weekend of the season.
Wolves can push Leeds closer to trapdoor
Bet 1: The first half will be a draw
Julen Lopetegui's side mustered just two attempts on goal in the first half of their 2-1 defeat at Newcastle last weekend — to the hosts' 13.
However, they came alive after the break as they sent five efforts towards Nick Pope's goal and completed more than twice the amount of passes as the Magpies.
This was no isolated example as, against Tottenham the week before, they went from taking zero attempts in the first half to producing eight, of which five were on target, after the interval.
Leeds have scored only one first-half goal in their last six matches, of which five have been even after 45 minutes, so this looks like a good start to the Bet Builder.
Bet 2: Under four goals in the match
Fewer than four goals have been scored in 17 of Wolves' last 18 games and seven of Leeds' last 10 in all competitions.
Bet 3: Nelson Semedo to receive a card in the match
The Portuguese defender, who will be tasked with stopping Willy Gnonto on Saturday, has been carded in three of his last seven appearances for Wolves.
Gnonto is an ace at drawing fouls and winning free kicks, which could make Semedo a focus of attention for the referee again.
