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'sCall of Duty: Black Ops 2 is the heavy favorite.

On Paddy Power, Black Ops 2 is so heavily the favorite that the site has nowadded 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 isFIFA 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 BrosU
14/1 – Halo 4
16/1 -Assassin's Creed 3
16/1 – FIFA 13
25/1 – LEGO Lord of the Rings
