This is the last round of Premier League matches taking place before Christmas and is, as such, our final opportunity to boost the betting balance in time for the big day. A few wise selections at this stage of the month in an accumulator could help repair the plastic that has taken a beating over the course of the last few weeks.
A Closer Look
A full round of Premier League matches is scheduled to take place over the weekend and that’s great news for both armchair fans and those looking to profit from the occasion. Bookmakers price up several markets, including match winner, both teams to score, total goals, first goal scorer, handicap and plenty more besides. You’ll even notice many remain live in-play.
Man City’s chances of defending their title were knocked off course by rivals Man Utd recently when suffering a derby defeat at the Etihad Stadium. The light blues do have a chance to close the gap, however, with Liverpool kept busy on football World Cup duty. Will the defending champions take full advantage and, at least, ask a few questions of the pace setters? Bookies believe so and you’ll get 4/9 at bet365 on the hosts claiming all three points. That looks to be a little on the tight side, however, given just how good Leicester have been recently.
Another Saturday Surprise?
Leicester are priced like winning isn’t an option here but Man Utd did it and there’s no reason why The Foxes can’t go and do something similar in this live match shown on Sky Sports from 5.30pm on Saturday night. Brendan Rodgers has improved their fortunes and we are happy to give them the benefit of the doubt and back a draw at 22/5 with 22bet. Leicester are 6/1 at William Hill.
