Christmas Period Fixtures  

For many the Christmas break begins on the 21st and we’re straight into the football with Wolves v Liverpool.

The weekend provides some interesting games at the foot of the table, with the Premier League relegation odds likely to change a number of times over the period.

Newcastle take on Fulham which will be a real six pointer for new boss Claudio Ranieri, while the new Southampton boss takes on a Huddersfield side struggling in the second season in the top flight. That’ll be a big one and our tipsters are seeing the Saints getting their season underway over the Christmas period.

The big six all have winnable fixtures with Spurs having perhaps the most difficult tie away at Goodison Park.


Below you’ll find the full Premier League fixtures for December 21 to December 23:

Again, it’s another battle at the bottom with Crystal Palace taking on Cardiff, two of the favourites to go down according to the bookmakers .

Premier League New Year's Day Betting  

The New Year fixtures are split across both the 1st, 2nd and 3rd this Christmas with a real cracker saved for Thursday night.

January 3rd sees Manchester City welcome Liverpool in a game which will undoubtedly prove pivotal in the title race.

It’s split the office here at Bet and Skill with the majority just about pipping Jurgen Klopp’s men purely on the basis that they’ll still be hurting after last season’s defeats.

Elsewhere Everton v Leicester should be a fantastic game in the first game of the New Year, with the East Midlands side enjoying a bit of a run at the moment.

Aside from the big game at the Etihad, comfortable wins are expected for the top six, all of whom face teams towards the foot of the table, while Burnley v Huddersfield is a big relegation six pointer.

Sean Dyche needs some good wins if he’s to prevent the good work he did last term completely unravelling with pressure surely starting to grow on the Turf Moor man.


Split across three days, there are some incredible fixtures in the Premier League on New Year's Day, January 2nd and 3rd.

Tuesday January 1, 2019:


  • Everton v Leicester City (Live on Sky Sports)


  • Arsenal v Fulham


  • Cardiff City v Tottenham Hotspur (Live on Sky Sports)

Wednesday January 2, 2019:


  • Bournemouth v Watford
  • Chelsea v Southampton
  • Huddersfield Town v Burnley
  • West Ham United v Brighton
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers v Crystal Palace


  • Newcastle United v Manchester United (Live on Sky Sports)

Thursday January 3, 2019:
