When we get into the holiday season, we know that there are going to be a heck of a lot of fixtures for teams to play all across the world. That gives us a lot of opportunities to cash in on some soccer bets, though of course, it becomes really hard to limit this down to just a couple games to highlight.
Juventus vs. AC Milan, Friday, 11:30 a.m. ET ( fuboTV )
We must admit that Supercoppa Italiana isn't necessarily the greatest competition on the face of the earth, but any time you can get two of the bluebloods of Italian soccer on the field together, it's can't miss viewing. The fact that this is the only great match of the day on Friday and is played in the middle of the morning makes it even more important.
What makes this match so interesting is that it's played in Doha in Qatar. It typically features the winner of the previous Serie A season against the winner of the Coppa Italia, but with Juve winning both competitions, AC Milan is going to be in the match instead as the runner-up of Coppa Italia.
Juventus enters this match at 14-0-3 in the regular season in Serie A, topping the table by seven points. AC Milan is in fifth, albeit just two points back of second place AS Roma.
Arsenal vs. West Brom, Monday, 10 a.m. ET ( NBC Sports Live Extra )
The traditional Boxing Day fixtures in the Premier League are always intense. Though Arsenal and West Brom aren't one of the NBCSN matchups, this might quietly be the best match of the day. WBA has overachieved tremendously thus far in the Premier League, coming in at eighth in the table. What are the odds the Baggies end up staying here by the end of the year? Probably not that good. But the fact that Tony Pulis has this team nine points clear of the relegation zone is a good start as we near the halfway point of the campaign.
Arsenal has been all over the place of late. The team is going to be happy to be back at home after a rough set of fixtures at Manchester City and Everton. The team though, is only 5-2-1 at the Emirates this season, and that isn't going to cut it to challenge for the Premier League title. If the Gunners are going to run down Chelsea, this is the type of match they have to win.
Hull City vs. Manchester City, Monday, 12:15 p.m. ET ( NBC Sports Network )
Teams don't come out of the foot of the table to survive in the Premier League heading into the new calendar year all that often, and that's a fate that seems to be ready to befell Hull City at this point. The Tigers have had a tough year for sure. They're the thinnest team in the EPL, and they just don't have the horses to run with the big boys, particularly on the road.
But here at home might be a bit of a different story. This is a big fixture against Manchester City at the KC, and at 2-2-4, it's hard to say that Hull City has underachieved at home.
That said, the Citizens are still in good form, and they'll get back the recently suspended Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho in this match. That should be a good shot in the arm for a team that needs to get back in the saddle in a hurry if it wants to run down the Blues.
