Boxing Day odds, schedule, matchups


Will only two Boxing Day games be cancelled?

Wolves v Watford and Liverpool v Leeds were canceled on Thursday morning due to COVID-19 cases. So far, every other game is scheduled for December 26th (and December 27th). Hopefully none of those games will be canceled either.

As COVID-19 spreads across the Premier League, our advice from last week remains the same. Wait until you see the team sheets to bet. They have an idea of ​​who’s available and, more importantly, know the game is happening.

Here’s what you need to know for the latest round of EPL games. We hope you are having a great holiday season and as always the odds are from BetMGM. Games are on Sundays unless otherwise noted.

Burnley vs Everton (over/under 2.5)

  • Burnley (+135)

  • Everton (+200)

  • tie (+225)

Burnley have played the fewest games in the Premier League (15) after three of their games were postponed in recent weeks. Thanks to those postponements and a run of three games without a goal, Burnley have not scored since 20 November. Everton have drawn and lost in their last two games. We wouldn’t be surprised if either team wins and we wonder if the draw is the best game.

Norwich City vs Arsenal (2.5)

  • Norwich City (+575)

  • Armory (-225)

  • tie (+375)

Arsenal sit fourth in the table after winning three straight league games since losing to Everton. Norwich play better under Dean Smith and therefore don’t have astronomical chances. Arsenal’s form makes the Gunners a smart pick, although an upset wouldn’t come as a huge shock.

Manchester City vs Leicester City (3.5)

  • Manchester City (-500)

  • Leicester City (+1150)

  • Tie (+600)

City are three points clear at the top of the table after beating Newcastle at the weekend. Man City have won their last two games by an aggregate score of 11-0 – that’s why the over/under is 3.5. Every Leicester game since November 7 has included at least three goals. And I’ll be counterintuitive. Below 3.5 (-135) is delicious.

Tottenham vs Crystal Palace (2.5)

  • Tottenham (-145)

  • Crystal Palace (+375)

  • tie (+290)

Tottenham are finding their way under Antonio Conte and have not lost a league game since a 3-0 defeat by Manchester United in late October when Nuno Espirito Santo was still in charge. Palace have established themselves as a very solid midfielder and there’s no reason to expect that to change in the second half of the season. We like Tottenham and the Under.

West Ham v Southampton (2.5)

  • West Ham (-120)

  • Southampton (+340)

  • tie (+260)

West Ham are still fifth in the table despite just one point from their last two league games. Southampton are having the perfectly nondescript EPL season. The Saints sit a comfortable six points above the relegation zone and have won just three times in 17 games. Go with West Ham.

Aston Villa v Chelsea (2.5)

  • Aston Mansion (+450)

  • Chelsea (-155)

  • tie (+275)

Chelsea were short-handed against Wolves last week while Villa’s game was postponed. Chelsea have been dropping points lately. The Blues have just five points in their last four games and are now six behind Man City. Villa have been much better under Steven Gerrard although Chelsea should have the upper hand.

Brighton & Hove Albion v Brentford (2.5)

  • Brighton & Hove (-110)

  • Brentford (+300)

  • Tie (+250)

Brighton have fallen down the table with both teams having 20 points in 16 games. With this game taking place at the AmEx we are leaning towards Brighton although a win here would be their first in the league since September 19th.

Newcastle vs Manchester United (2.5) [Monday]

  • Newcastle (+500)

  • Male U (-225)

  • Tie (+360)

Newcastle is a mess. This one is an easy choice.
