Away treble (Tottenham, Wigan, Swansea to win) 23/1

It's rare that the Premier League fixture list throws up a chance for an away treble against home teams that are either inferior or out of form.

Spurs were somehow behind against Sunderland at half-time but recovered to win comfortably. A few hours later, the treble was completed easily as Wigan heaped more misery on Aston Villa who have now lost 15-0 in their last 270 minutes of football.

Swansea's win against Fulham was the longest odds of the three but, as they began four points ahead of the Londoners, they were worth the risk.
