Get Yourself a Late Christmas Present and Place These Three Premier League Bets On December 26th
Well, there’s no avoiding the fact now: the holidays are upon us. While some people are taking off from work now in preparation for the holiday weekend, we here at OddsSeeker are still burning the midnight tequila to make sure you have the best bets coming into the weekend. For those lucky enough to get the day after Christmas off from work as well, these ones are especially for you–because nothing is better than watching some Premier League action the day after Christmas.
On Monday, December 26th, there are eight Premier League matches taking place, and I have three best bets for you from those games that will (hopefully) keep you feeling jolly. The odds I am using are provided by DraftKings Sportsbook. DraftKings is one of the best sportsbooks in the country, and often offers a myriad of free bets that you can pick and choose from at will. If DraftKings is not available in your state/country, be sure to check out these other online casinos.
Best Bet #1: Arsenal (-1.5) vs West Ham (+135)
Arsenal has one of the most prolific attacking fronts that you can find in all of European soccer, and I expect that to be on full display this Monday against West Ham. West Ham has had a season to forget so far, currently sitting in 16th place, having won just one of their last six contests. While their defense is decent, their attacking players just haven’t woken up yet, scoring only 12 times in their 15 premier league games so far this season. To put that in perspective, Arsenal has scored 33 goals so far.
Seeing as how this game is being played in the Emirates too, I expect the Gunnars to come out firing on Monday and win by at least two goals.
Best Bet #2: Crystal Palace (+105) over Fulham
It won't be the prettiest game, but it is a solid match between two middle-of-the-table teams, so why not sprinkle a little action onto it? While Fulham is currently ahead of Crystal Palace in the standings, I think it will be Palace that comes out of this match on top. During the break in play due to the World Cup, Crystal Palace has done everything in their power to stay fresh and on their A games, playing in four club friendlies in less than a month. Fulham, on the other hand, only played in one.
Also, Fulham’s defense is just in a shambles right now. They’ve conceded 26 goals so far this season, and six in their last four games alone (which includes a shutout to put things in perspective). So, if you want a little bonus bet here, too, I’d definitely keep an eye on Wilfried Zaha to score a goal, which is currently at +110.
Best Bet #3: New Castle (+120) over Leicester City
Through all competitions, New Castle hasn’t lost a match since August 31st–that’s about as hot as hot gets. While Leicester is also on a bit of a run of their own, winning four of their last five, I think New Castle’s body of work just speaks for itself. They’ve only conceded 11 goals all season, scoring 29 in the process. Leicester, on the other hand, has a goal differential of zero, as they have allowed and scored 25 goals a piece. I think New Castle gets it done, especially since they are home.
