THE festive fixture list is well underway and we've some late Christmas crackers on the cards.
With every Premier League team in action over the coming days, we've got betting tips for you from tonight's final top-flight match – Man Utd hosting Wolves – and for Wednesday's action between Newcastle and Liverpool.
Man Utd vs Wolves, Tuesday 8pm
It's never an easy game when Wolves are in town.
Man Utd are enjoying a winter up-turn, currently five unbeaten and crashing in 14 goals during that period.
Sadly for the visitors, the story is slightly bleaker after four defeats in their last five.
In between those losses was a superb win over Chelsea though, proving that the bite hasn't gone despite the loss of talisman Raul Jimenez to a horrific head injury.
Scoring goals is proving to be Wolves' main problem this term, with just 14 in fifteen games.
United have scored more than double that – but Old Trafford has proved a tough place to play without any fans on the terraces.
Ole's men are unbeaten in three at the Theatre of Dreams though and their form is definitely on the turn.
But 4/7 on them winning? We're looking for more value than that.
Games between these sides rarely feature many goals, with four of the last H2H's featuring less than three.
But with United carving teams open at will – plus Wolves' matches seeing four of the last six feature over 2.5 goals – that's the way to play.
Three goals or more is 10/11, while we also like the Red Devils to score in both halves at 31/20.
That's been a winner in each of their last three Premier League matches.
Marcus Rashford continues to impress with 14 goals from 25 games for club and country this season.
He looks to have a fire in his belly at the moment and netted in the 2-2 draw with Leicester at the weekend.
At 9/5, he's the value pick in the goalscorer market.

Newcastle vs Liverpool, Wednesday, 8pm
It felt like the Liverpool title defence was finally clicking through the gears – then West Brom and Big Sam rolled into town.
After a bumpy start – and the loss of arguably their best player – Jurgen Klopp's men are back at the summit though and were ruthless in the 7-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace last time they were out on the road.
Newcastle meanwhile continue to plod about in mid-table, with Steve Bruce keeping the Toon safely away from any relegation danger.
But does mediocrity keep him in the job?
They went down 2-0 to Man City at the Etihad last time out, and also crashed out of the Carabao Cup to Championship side Brentford at the last-eight stage.
Historically this is a fixture which promises goals and five of the last seven meetings have featured three or more.
Expect Klopp's men to arrive fresh and fired-up to St James Park after that disappointing draw with the Baggies, where they had enough chances to be out of sight.
The home side are 10/1 to win but we won't be going anywhere near that, despite the big price.
Liverpool have scored three on their last two visits to Tyneside and we're instead backing them to do the same again.
After a run of three straight away draws at Brighton, Fulham and Man City, the shackles came off against Palace and the confidence returned.
The Reds to net three or more is evens, while we'd also recommend a play on Liverpool winning both halves at 17/10.
Mo Salah is an odds-on favourite to net in this game but we often shy away from those sort of prices when it comes to a goalscorer.
Leave the Egyptian well alone and instead back Sadio Mane at evens.
He's got two in his last two after ending a lengthy drought – he's the man to be on.
SunSport's best bets

- Reds to win both halves: 17/10 (BET HERE)
- Sadio Mane on scoresheet: evens (BET HERE)
