Matt Holt and Paul King eye up some Boxing Day Bookie Bashing
Everyone knows Boxing Day and having a flutter go hand-in-hand so who best to trust with your hard-earned cash than two of the finest tipsters on Twitter?
That’s right, Matt Holt and Paul King are back and they’re both ready to take the bookies to the cleaners.
Ladbrokes are doing their bit to help the lads and their followers on their way, having produced a number of exciting Boxing Day specials.
And without much further ado, here’s how MH and PK are calling the Premier League action…

Despite being a relatively low price at 8/15, this could potentially be the best bet of the day.
In the Premier League, there has only been one 0-0 since November 19. That’s a run of 53 games and just a singular goalless game.
Southampton, who don’t play on Boxing Day, have been involved in both of the goalless games this season so I really fancy the chances of this one landing without them around to ruin it.
Paul’s been rather pessimistic with his prediction for the entertainment we’re going to get on Boxing Day, but I’m an optimist and I fancy a few more goals.
Based on the average goals scored and conceded by each team home and away, there should be 23.70 goals scored by the sides involved on Boxing Day.
If all stay true to form, 21-24 goals definitely sounds like the bet to back from Ladbrokes’ specials.

We’re still waiting for a repeat of that notorious 1963 Boxing Day when a mind-boggling 66 goals were scored. That included fixtures such as Fulham’s 10-1 win over Ipswich Town and an 8-2 away win for Blackburn Rovers at West Ham.
Alas, we’re unlikely to see such scorelines again any time soon. Last Boxing Day, only 23 goals were scored across ten fixtures, making 20 goals or less a fantastic punt considering there are only eight games being played this time around.
With all four of these players in fine form at the moment, 18/1 is fantastic value for all of them to net and hopefully provide us with that extra bit of festive cheer.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been Man United’s stand-out player since joining in the summer and is their top scorer on 11, bagging five in his last five.
Kevin De Bruyne always looks a threat for Man City and is a constant thorn in the side of opposing teams.
He’ll certainly fancy his chances against a struggling Hull City.
Alvaro Negredo has bagged four in four for Middlesbrough, while Alexis Sanchez has been phenomenal for Arsenal this season, as shown by the 12 goals he’s already netted in the league.
