Premier League preview 30 Dec – 1 Jan
Hull City are staring into the abyss as the New Year approaches, with the Tigers sitting bottom of the Premier League table and facing the possibility of being cut adrift well before the season ends.
They are a 4.75 chance with Unibet to beat an improving Everton side who enjoyed a 2-0 victory at Leicester on Boxing Day, with the Toffees 1.85 (BetVictor ) to build on this win with another triumph at the KCom Stadium.
Burnley and Sunderland meet the next day at Turf Moor, with the Clarets continuing to boast excellent home form and they are 2.40 (William Hill ) to beat a Sunderland side who have been struggling on the road this term.
Chelsea meet Stoke City and the Blues are in danger of running away with the Premier League title. Bet365 offer up 1.25 about a home win and Diego Costa will return to the team, with the striker likely to be popular at 4.00 (Ladbrokes ) to score first.
Leicester City badly need a win and they are 2.18 with Unibet to beat a West Ham side fresh from a 4-1 victory at Swansea, with Slaven Bilic’s side 3.60 (BetVictor ) to repeat the act and land a fourth consecutive victory.
Manchester United will be all the rage at 1.30 (Unibet ) to win against Middlesbrough, with Southampton 1.66 (Unibet ) to beat West Brom although the Baggies were close to landing a point at the Emirates and some will feel the 6.25 (BetVictor ) about the visitors is a big price.
Swansea City are struggling badly and Bob Bradley’s future is surely on the line. The Welsh side are a 2.80 chance with Unibet to claim the spoils although it’s surely better to grab the 2.60 (William Hill ) about the Cherries considering how toxic the atmosphere has become at the Liberty Stadium.
Liverpool clash with Manchester City on Saturday night and it should be a Christmas cracker, with Unibet offering 2.42 about a win for the Reds, while Manchester City are a 2.90 chance to haul themselves well into the title running by taking three points at Anfield.
On Sunday, Watford clash with Tottenham and the bookies make the visitors strong favourites at 1.75 (William Hill ) to get the job done at Vicarage Road, while the Hornets are as big as 5.50 (BetVictor ) to beat Spurs.
Finally, Sam Allardyce makes another short journey with his Crystal Palace side as they come up against an Arsenal side who are still in with a chance of winning the league this term.
The Eagles should really have beaten Watford on Boxing Day and they are 11.00 (BetVictor ) to stun the Gunners with three points, although Arsene Wenger’s side could be hard to stop and bet365 go 1.29 about the home win.
