Premier League Betting: Get Ready for a Boxing Day Bonanza
If we concede that the Premier League is, by some distance, the most popular sports league in the world then arguably the most anticipated gameweek of the English top tier comes the day after Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and there are already some very interesting fixtures to keep your eyes on.
Liverpool are currently running away with the Premier League title race having picked up eight wins from eight thus far, but on Boxing Day it’s likely Jurgen Klopp’s men will have a big fight on their hands.
In a recent fixture Leicester City fought back from a goal down to level with the Anfield side but then saw a harsh penalty handed to the Merseyside outfit in injury time. A spot-kick from James Milner was duly converted and the Foxes went home with nothing.
On Boxing Day Liverpool travel to Leicester City for the return fixture and Brendan Rodgers’ side will be looking for revenge.
Others sides looking for revenge, and well worth backing in the Premier League Boxing Day betting, include Tottenham and Manchester United, both of whom fell to surprise defeats against supposedly weaker opposition.
Tottenham slumped to a 3-0 reverse at Brighton while Man United slipped up against Newcastle United, both Maurico Pochettino and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hope to pick up three points from their respective fixtures.
Remember that not only is the English league one of the few European leagues to not take a winter break, they actually play frequently across the whole period and therefore there are many chances to pick up a great value Premier League bet.
