Chelsea (33 points) , Manchester City (32 points), and Liverpool (31 points) are the top three heading into Match Week 15 action, and it would be tough to call the race between them right now. I do think Chelsea and City have a better chance to go the distance due to their better squad depth than Liverpool (see last season), with the festive fixtures' list.
Chelsea kicks off the weekend with a tough away match in London against fourth place West Ham, and you are going to get good odds on any of the three match results you play.
Liverpool and City are both big favorites away from home as well, with Watford trying to stay out of the relegation zone against the Cityzens.
Sunday, I will be at the Manchester United Crystal Palace contest, once again willing the Red Devils to victory under Ragnick.
Monday is the final match of the weekend, before the UEFA Champions League, Europa League, and Europa Conference League all finish their group stages with what could be an epic Match Day 6. Arsenal will visit Everton to end the Premier League docket, and the Toffees are in danger of falling into the relegation scrap under Liverpool legend Rafa Benitez.
