Looking to make weird, novelty bets this year? UK bookie sites Paddy Power and Ladbrokes have revealed their contenders for the best-selling video game this Christmas. Unsurprisingly, Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is the heavy favorite.

On Paddy Power, Black Ops 2 is so heavily the favorite that the site has now added a second betting option for the Christmas number 1 without Call of Duty included. In essence, what do you think the number two best seller will be? My sleeper pick is FIFA 13, although considering its popularity, I don't know if it can be considered a sleeper anymore.

Below are the bets and odds for each of the top contenders this Christmas, according to Paddy Power:

1/20 - Call Of Duty: Black Ops II
8/1 - FIFA 13
20/1 - Medal of Honor: Warfighter
28/1 - Borderlands 2
33/1 - World Of Warcraft: Mists Of Pandaria
33/1 - Assassin's Creed 3
33/1 - New Super Mario Bros. U

Christmas number one without Call of Duty:

4/9 - FIFA 13
6/1 - Medal of Honor: Warfighter
8/1 - Assassin's Creed 3
16/1 - World Of Warcraft: Mists Of Pandaria
16/1 - Borderlands 2
16/1 - New Super Mario Bros.

Here are the odds according to Ladbrokes:

1/8 - Call of Duty: Black Ops II
12/1 - New Super Mario Bros U
14/1 - Halo 4
16/1 - Assassin's Creed 3
16/1 - FIFA 13
25/1 - LEGO Lord of the Rings
25/1 - Hitman Absolution
33/1 - Medal of Honor: Warfighter
33/1 - WWE '13
50/1 - Just Dance 4
50/1 - Football Manager 2013
50/1 - Need for Speed Most Wanted
66/1 - Far Cry 3
100/1 - Madden NFL 13
100/1 - Forza Horizon
100/1 - Diablo 3
100/1 - Resident Evil 6
100/1 - Dishonored

Merry Christmas, everyone. And may the odds be ever in your favor!
