AFC Bournemouth, based out of Dorset in southern England, had not played in England's top flight before the 2015/16 season. They have, however, enjoyed some success in the lower divisions. Bournemouth, also known as the Cherries, have been crowned champions of the second and third tiers of English soccer as well as winning the fourth tier on two occasions. Crowned champions of the football Championship in 2014/15, Bournemouth secured top-flight soccer and haven't looked back since.

Bournemouth have come a long way since debuting in the Premier League, and are now expected to finish near - or in - the top half of the table. Find out if that's the case this season.
How To Make Money Betting On Bournemouth
Bournemouth scored goals for fun in the Championship during their promotion season, a trend that continued in the Premier League, the team managing to bag over one goal per game for a total of 45 goals in the 2015-16 campaign.
With good often comes some bad. Bournemouth's defense struggled dearly, conceding 67 times, almost two goals a game in 2015-16. Things didn't change much in 2016-17, as Eddie Howe likes to play an pleasing style of expansive soccer. It's an entertaining brand of soccer rarely seen played by middle-of-the-road teams.
In 2016-17, Bournemouth scored 55 goals in 28 matches, the seventh most in the top flight. It's a brilliant return from a team expected to struggle in the bottom half of the table. Bournemouth, though, didn't enjoy playing on the road, the Cherries finishing with the league's fifth worst road record.
Expect, with the addition of Jermain Defoe, for Bournemouth's goal tally to increase. Already led by proficient scorers - Joshua King and Callum Wilson - the Cherries will be an offensive force to be reckoned with.
Many question marks remain on the defensive side of the ball, though. Bournemouth conceded 67 goals in 38 matches, the fifth most in England's top division. If they don't manage to shore up their porous defense, Bourenmouth are likely to concede almost as many goals in future seasons.
For the first time, Bournemouth managed to finish in the top half of the table. Bettors should expect much of the same in coming seasons, as this team is ready to become a Premier League mainstay.
Steadfast in his approach, Howe has no intention of changing styles so bettors can once again expect lots of goals in Bournemouth matches. Bet the over in most Cherries' matches, particularly those played at Dean Court.
