More big SCOTUS crimnal law doings this week?

Last Monday brought a lot of fascinating sentencing developments from the Supreme Court (basics here, commentary linked here), and I am gearing up for another big decision day.  We are still awaiting decisions in the four Blakely-tinged cases noted here, and there are a half dozen other major criminal law cases still on the SCOTUS docket. 

Since this month has already been marked by SCOTUS sentencing surprises — a cert grant in Burton on Blakely retroactivity (basics here, commentary here), sparring over the fate of the prior conviction exception (details here) — I wonder what might be in store for this week.
