The Premier League action heads to the Vitality Stadium on Wednesday evening when relegation-threatened Bournemouth play host to Newcastle United.
The Cherries head into the contest in 18th position, only behind West Ham in 17th on goal difference, while the Magpies are 12 points clear of the bottom three and only need a draw to reach that magical 40-point mark.
Bournemouth's need for the win is far greater than Newcastle's, who are arguably safe already with seven games remaining, and Eddie Howe's men could climb as high as 16th if other results go their way midweek.
However, the Cherries are on a dreadful run of form as they head into the game without a win in their last six games, drawing one and losing five, and a big improvement is needed if they are going to retain their top-flight status.
The south-coast outfit have lost both matches since the restart, going down 2-0 to Crystal Palace and 1-0 to Wolverhampton Wanderers, but they could benefit from taking on a Newcastle side with little to play for.
Having been knocked out at the quarter-final stage of the FA Cup on Sunday, there is every chance the Magpies could down tools for the remainder of the campaign, while tiredness could also come into play.
Bournemouth are 7/5 to pick up all three points, while a draw is priced at odds of 11/5 and Newcastle are on offer at 23/20.
England international Callum Wilson picked up his 10th yellow card of the season last time out and will, therefore, be suspended for Wednesday's game, while Joshua King is doubtful after missing the Wolves loss because of a foot injury.
Simon Francis, who was also absent for the last match, is expected to miss out again with a knee issue, Charlie Daniels remains sidelined while Ryan Fraser will not play for the club again after rejecting a short-term contract extension.
Philip Billing picked up a dead leg against Wolves and, if he doesn't recover in time, it is likely Dan Gosling will be brought into the starting XI as his replacement.
Having played three games in a week, Newcastle boss Steve Bruce could decide to rotate his squad, with record-signing Joelinton expected to return after being replaced by Andy Carroll for the FA Cup clash.
Defensive pair Florian Lejeune and Ciaran Clark both remain on the sidelines with injury but Matt Ritchie, who missed the loss to City with a tight hamstring, could return to the fold.
Jonjo Shelvey was an unused substitute on Sunday and is expected to return to the middle of the park, alongside either Isaac Hayden, Sean Longstaff or Matty Longstaff.
Newcastle to win - BET NOW
A lot depends on team selection but, if Newcastle keep both Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron in the starting XI, there is every chance they can walk away with all three points.
Victory for the Magpies would all but secure their place in the top flight for another season and Bruce may see this game as the perfect opportunity to put any niggling relegation fears to bed.
Bournemouth struggled against the pace of Adama Traore in that Wolves defeat and the Cherries could be in for a tough evening if Saint-Maximin is on song, with his speed difficult to deal with.
The Magpies are unbeaten in the last four trips to the south coast, drawing three and winning one, and they look a good price at 23/10 to head back to Tyneside with the spoils.
Joelinton to score anytime - BET NOW
It is safe to say that Joelinton's debut season at Newcastle has not been one to remember, with just two Premier League goals to his name, but he can enjoy himself against a Bournemouth side that boasts the fifth-worst defensive record in the division.
The Brazilian, who joined for £40million from Hoffenheim last summer, did score in the 3-0 win over Sheffield United in the first game back and that strike will have done him the world of good.
Expected to lead the line again, Joelinton will be itching to keep the momentum going and, at 10/3, he looks worth a punt to find the back of the net anytime at the Vitality Stadium.
Over 2.5 goals - BET NOW
Both sides' have lacked that cutting edge in the final third this season, scoring 29 times each, but recent meetings in this fixture have been entertaining and I am expecting another exciting affair.
The last four meetings have produced an impressive 14 goals and the fact that Bournemouth need to start picking up wins in their survival bid should provide an open feel to this game.
Newcastle love to hit teams on the break, utilising the pace of Saint-Maximin and Almiron, and backing over 2.5 goals at 7/5 could be the right betting strategy in this one.
