The upcoming set of mid-week games will be looked back on as the round of matches that blew the Premier League title race wide open.
Two of the teams gunning for league glory are facing tricky tasks, while another of the in-form trio are in for a bad evening in a treble of bets priced at just north of the 52/1 mark.
The largest spanner in the works will be thrown by Tony Pulis when his West Bromwich Albion side visit Leicester.
In the last two meetings between the pair, the Foxes emerged victorious 3-2 on both outings.
However, these results came during some of Leicester’s best form, the start of this season and the end of last term, with the fact that the Baggies made the game so close suggesting they know how to worry their fellow Midlanders.
Claudio Ranieri’s task will not be made any easier easier by N’Golo Kante’s injury absence and this will help West Brom come good on their 17/4 odds of victory.
The next spanner comes courtesy of Bournemouth who come up against their in-form south coast rivals Southampton.
Since the start of 2016, the Saints have only lost twice in the Premier League and have won five of their eight matches.
However, their run of six games unbeaten was brought to an abrupt end at the hands of Chelsea when the Blues beat them 2-1 in their latest outing.
History has shown that when a run ends, the team capsizes, as shown with Jamie Vardy’s consecutive goalscoring record and the 11 goals Edwin van der Sar leaked after he broke the Premier League record for successive clean sheets in 2008/09, meaning the Cherries should be backed at 7/4.
Finally, on Wednesday Tottenham Hotspur will make the short trip to West Ham looking to pile the pressure on Leicester.
However, they need to be wary against their London rivals given how difficult they made what should of been a routine win over Swansea.
Furthermore, the Hammers haven’t lost at home in 2016 and have won their last three home outings across all competitions, a price of 27/10 says they’ll make it four on the spin.
