    Boxing Day 2017: Premier League Games, Odds, Picks on Christmas

    Try to take it easy on the Christmas cocktails, or at least get to bed early. Because Premier League Boxing day soccer kicks off at 1 pm in the UK, which is 9 am in Eastern Canada, 8 am in Ontario, and more and more sleepy as we work our way west in Canada. So, if you’re in Vancouver, you may be best off not going to bed at all and just push right through. Let’s take a look at the day’s matchups and where the smart bets are (all odds provided by Sports Interaction).

    Bournemouth vs West Ham United

    Coming off a tough loss to Arsenal where they could only manage a single shot, West Ham is looking to rebound. Meanwhile, Bournemouth hasn’t tasted victory since November 18th. They are winless in their last 6 matches, including a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Liverpool in their last outing.

    Prediction: Western Ham United (2.93)

    Chelsea FC vs Brighton and Hove Albion

    It’s been a rough go for Brighton recently. They have only found the net once in December. Sadly, in that game, they lost 5-1 to Liverpool. Since then they dropped a 2-0 game to Huddersfield, another 2-0 to Tottenham, and a 0-0 draw to Burnley. So someone needs to gift them some spark for the New Year

    Prediction: Chelsea FC (1.19)

    Crystal Palace vs Arsenal

    Arsenal has a tough match in Liverpool earlier that week, then back home to play Crystal Palace a few quick days later. So they will have the benefit of staying at home for Christmas and sleeping in their own beds.

    But it’s for that reason I’m betting against them. There’s a level of comfort and complacency that goes with all that. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace FC goes into the match pissed off they have to travel and as the underdog. I like their odds.

    Prediction: Crystal Palace (4.56)

    Huddersfield Town vs Stoke City

    After losing 4 tough matches in a row, Huddersfield looks like they’re starting to figure it out slightly and have won 2 of their last 3 games. Meanwhile, Stoke City has lost 5 of their last 6 matches and are bleeding pretty badly. Will they turn it around Boxing Day? Nah.

    Prediction: Huddersfield Town (2.59)

    Liverpool vs Swansea City

    Coming off a nice 4-0 win over Bournemouth and a big match against Arsenal this week, I like their odds going into a Boxing Day date with Swansea City. Meanwhile, Swansea has been outscored 7-1 in their last two matches again Man. City and Everton.

    Prediction: Liverpool FC (1.16)

    Manchester United vs Burnley

    Burnley FC is going into this one a predictably massive underdog. And for good reason. They won’t win. If you want to bet on a Christmas miracle, bet against Man U. But I’ll be playing it safe on this one.

    Prediction: Manchester United (1.20)

    Newcastle United vs Manchester City

    Meanwhile, Man City is also favored to win big over Newcastle

    Yes, this one is the day after Boxing Day, but we know you’ll be watching.

    Prediction: Manchester City (1.24)
