Premier League Betting: Expect Plenty of Fireworks in the Boxing Day Bonanza!
As the Premier League season nears its halfway point you can expect a great deal of exciting action in the traditional Boxing Day gameweek, where a crowd of great fixtures are set to take place, offering soccer fans a great deal of betting opportunities.
Liverpool are running away with the title chase and now sit ten points clear of the chasing pack and will come up against second-placed Leicester CIty in the big game of the Boxing Day bonanza.
Bovada are offering very tasty odds on the Foxes causing an upset at the King Power Stadium with the US Sportsbook giving +230 on Brendan Rodgers triumphing over his former side in the late kick-off match.
Though Liverpool have won 16 of their 17 fixtures this season, drawing the other game, their unbeaten run could come to an end given just how much action Jurgen Klopp’s side have had to endure in recent weeks.
The Anfield side have completed the FIFA World Club Cup, emerging victorious, but must be very tired after their efforts and this could play into Leicester’s hands. If Liverpool beat their rivals then it’s a fair bet to say the Premier League title race is done and dusted.
Newly appointed boss Mikel Arteta takes Arsenal away to Bournemouth in a game that the Gunners simply must win in order to stop their alarming slide down the table.
Back Arteta to hit the ground running with a win from their trip to the south coast and it may well be worth looking to take a big gamble on the North London side pushing onward towards that much desired top four spot.
When it comes to great Boxing Day Premier League bets then we heartily back SkyBook’s awesome +815 on Newcastle United to beat Manchester United. While traditionally the Red Devils would be a big favorite for this game, especially as the game is at Old Trafford, now is the time to back an upset.
Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United have won three of their last four matches and they beat United when they went into battle back in October. So it’s well worth a cheeky punt on a big surprise in this festive fixture.
Also worth backing are a succession of likely draws with Aston Villa hosting fellow strugglers Norwich City, Crystal Palace playing West Ham and Everton taking on Burnley, all three of these games have a very high likelihood of ending in a stalemate.
The final game of the Boxing Day gameweek actually takes place on the 27th and promises to be a really tight match-up with in-form Wolves hosting big money Manchester City.
Wolves are riding high in the top six and have lost just once in their last 13 Premier League matches and could offer a real challenge for Pep Guardiola’s side.
Enjoy your festive betting and we hope your punts are successful over the holiday period.
