The Home Banker
Southampton's survival hopes suffered a hammer blow at the weekend as they lost 3-2 against Chelsea. They are now five points from safety with just five games to play and face a really tough assignment on Thursday as they travel to Leicester. The Foxes have been pretty consistent at the King Power this season and look tempting here at 5/4 against a struggling Saints side. Defensively Southampton have looked all over the place in recent weeks and may struggle to cope with the trickery of Riyad Mahrez or the pace of Jamie Vardy.
The Tasty Treble
Tottenham (1/2) travel to the AMEX on Tuesday night and look worthy favourites against Brighton. Spurs were outplayed by a ruthless Manchester City side at the weekend but know a win would all but seal a top four finish and should be too strong for a Brighton side who have been leaking a few goals recently. On Thursday it could pay to back the draw at 12/5 when Chelsea travel to Burnley. The Clarets are enjoying a remarkable season and are such a tough side to beat, especially at Turf Moor. Throw in Leicester at 5/4 to see off Southampton and there's a treble paying better than 10/1 with bet365.
The Euro Wager
Barcelona travel to Celta Vigo on Tuesday evening where Luis Suarez can be backed at 3/1 to score first. The Uruguayan has scored 30 goals in all competitions this season and was on target as Barca beat Valencia 2-1 last time out.

The Wildcard Tip
Manchester United suffered a shock 1-0 reverse against West Brom at the weekend out but are still fancied to beat Bournemouth on Tuesday. The Red Devils were heavy odds on shots to beat the Baggies but slipped to an improbable defeat to hand Manchester City the title. Despite this they still on course to finish second and might be worth a flutter to win 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium.
The Bookie Basher
Jamie Vardy has been brilliant again for Leicester this season and looks the logical choice to score first for the Foxes against Southampton. The England man could be worth doubling with Alexis Sanchez to score first for Manchester United against Bournemouth for a first goalscorer bet that pays better than 26/1. The Chilean has endured a mixed start to his United career but remains a class act and could trouble Bournemouth with his pace.
