FIFA 16 is favourite finish 2015 as the UK's top selling game, according to Betway.

EA's football title currently has odds of 2/5, ahead of second place Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 at 7/2. Third favourite is Fallout 4 (8/1) followed by Assassin's Creed: Syndicate (9/1) and Halo 5: Guardians (10/1).

Outside bets include Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 and, amazingly, Spike Lee joint NBA 2K16 and NBA Live 16 all at 50/1. Slightly more generous are the odds for PES 2016, Just Cause 3 and Hitman, which stand at 33/1. The latter seems unlikely, though, thanks to its 2016 release date.

FIFA 16 is sure to be at the top of a lot of Christmas lists and we think there's a good chance this latest version can trump Call of Duty for a second year running,” Betway's Alan Alger said.

PES has been in FIFA's shadow for the last decade and, although this latest release is touted to be the best for some time, we don't think there will be a drastic popularity shift just yet.”

Star Wars: Battlefront doesn't look like a terrible bet at 14/1.
