William Hill makes FIFA 15 the favourite for Christmas No.1

FIFA 15 is the early favourite to claim the Christmas No.1 crown, as per bookie William Hill.

Videogamer reports that EA’s football game is 1/4 on, followed by Destiny (7/2) and Assassin’s Creed: Unity (7/1). It’s at that point that things get a little stranger with Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris (9/1) and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (9/1) coming next.

LEGO Batman 3 (16/1) is a better choice although we’d be pretty surprised to see F1 2014 (16/1) standing that big a chance. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare doesn’t even figure.

That’s actually an amended selection, too, with the initial listing placing Konami’s Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain in third with odds of 6/1. That game’s not out until 2015.

William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said: "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."
