The Premier League weekend kicks off at Vicarage Road, with Watford a 2/1 shot with Paddy Power to continue heaping misery upon an Everton side who are missing Yannick Bolasie for the rest of the season.
The Toffees need a pick-me-up and BetVictor go 7/5 that they land the points at Vicarage Road, although perhaps they should be the outsiders for this particular clash.
Arsenal should certainly be favourites when they entertain Stoke, with the Gunners no bigger than 4/11 (William Hill) to claim the points although they have been more stifled at home than away.
The Potters are in decent nick and BetVictor go 17/2 that they inflict a first Premier League defeat on Arsene Wenger’s team since the opening game of the season, while they are more than capable of landing the draw (17/4 Ladbrokes).
Burnley also look a big price at home to Bournemouth, with the Clarets chalked up at 5/2 (BetVictor) and Sean Dyche will be confident of getting some joy against a Cherries side who have defensive frailties.
Eddie Howe’s team did beat Liverpool in their previous match and the visitors are 6/5 (Stan James) to win this one although preference is for the home side.
Hull City head into Christmas with a low points count and they are 9/4 (Paddy Power) to claim a precious three against a Crystal Palace who made light work of Southampton but aren’t out of the woods yet. The Eagles are 7/5 with bet365 to win at the KCom Stadium though.
Swansea meet a Sunderland side on the rise and the Black Cats look a decent shout at 13/5 (Paddy Power) considering how porous the Swans are at the back. The Welsh side are 11/10 (bet365) to win the game but they could be out of their depth.
Finally on Saturday, Leicester City meet a Manchester City side without Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho. They also had a Champions League obligation against Celtic during the week although bet365 go 8/11 that they win at the King Power.
The Foxes are stumbling as we head towards Christmas and Stan James offer 7/2 about a win for the home side, with Claudio Ranieri needing to pull a rabbit out of the hat.
Chelsea are setting a fierce pace at the top of the table and Stan James go 3/10 about the London side winning against West Brom, while the Baggies are as big as 14/1 (BetVictor) to claim the three points.
Southampton meet a Middlesbrough side keeping things tight and the visitors look worth backing at 21/4 (BetVictor) to win this clash, while the Saints look a touch on the short side at odds-on.
Finally, Liverpool are 1/3 pokes (bet365) to claim three points against a West Ham side who are floundering near the foot of the Premier League. The Hammers are 10/1 (BetVictor) to repeat last season’s victory at Anfield.
