Christmas Coupon Busters


Boxing Day's a traditional time for coupon busters but who should we have in our sights as potential big-priced winners this year?

We looked over the odds, winners and losers from the past 10 years of Boxing Day football and discovered 11 teams had won at 5/1 or bigger on the day after Christmas.

Ten of those 11 winners were playing away with only one Premier League side (Sunderland last year) upsetting the odds on their travels in those 10 examples.

With only two Football League teams playing away from home at odds of 5/1 this year, is it worth a bet to back both Millwall (5/1 BetVictor) at Norwich and/or Barnsley (5/1 Bet365) at Preston this Boxing Day?
