Bournemouth suffered a shock FAC loss which could go either of two ways. Either they respond or it suggests a more serious malaise since they lost their first game late on in the season. Since then, they have 4W 3D & 6L. Birmingham's form is arguably worse since they won 3 in a row in Oct & Nov: 2W 5D 7L. Their record against the top six doesn't bode well with 7L in 8 (1D) & failing to score in 5. They haven't won in 7 on the road. Shocks do happen & the value is probably on the away side, Bournemouth need to respond here.
Norwich have won four of their last five league or cup games, so they are going to be in good confidence, enjoying by some distance their best run of the season. Palace have been tough to beat though, losing just three of their last nine matches in all competitions. Palace have drawn four of their last nine away league games.
Hearts are currently 3rd in the table on 43 points behind second placed Rangers and 1st place Celtic. Dundee sit bottom of the table with just 18 points. Hearts have won 2 of the last meetings between the teams.
