Bookie backs FIFA 15 for UK Christmas #1

William Hill gives it solid 1/4 odds

British bookmaker William Hill has revealed its odds on favourite for the Christmas number one and it's FIFA 15.

"Destiny is no doubt going straight to the top of the charts this week but its sales look likely to tail off to make way for FIFA come Christmas," explained William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Destiny takes second place and Assassin's Creed: Unity is just behind that.

  • FIFA 15 - 1/4
  • Destiny - 7/2
  • Assassin's Creed: Unity - 7/1
  • Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris - 9/1
  • Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel - 9/1
  • Lego Batman 3 - 16/1
  • F1 2014 - 16/1

FIFA 14 is always a massive seller at Christmas and FIFA 14 secured the festive number one last year. Christmas 2012 saw Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 take the honour.

William Hill's original list included Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain but this was revised when they realised it wasn't due for release until next year.
