Brighton & Hove Albion vs AFC Bournemouth
The first Premier League game of 2018 (UK time) sees the recently promoted Brighton ready to take on Bournemouth. The Seagulls have won both times these teams met this season and have been able to get points at home in eight of the ten matches. Bournemouth have lost six of ten on the road and with that in mind, take Brighton here.
Leicester vs Huddersfield
Leicester are a solid home side with 14 points from 8 games making for a good if not great return so far. Huddersfield are struggling on the road this season with 8 points in their games. In the midst of a busy period, you have to back the side that has been there and done it before with Leicester.
Michigan Wolverines vs South Carolina Gamecocks
The College Football Bowl games are a New Years Day staple in the US and these two sides will want to end their season on a high note in the outback bowl in Tampa. Things are getting a bit testy in the build up to this game and I like Jim Harbaugh’s ability to get his side going for a one off game.
