Paul Robinson has picked out the two Championship matches and then a late kick off from Brazil as Tuesday's edition of the Daily Acca is a 4/1 treble. Here are his selections:

- Back BTTS in Nottingham Forest v WBA @ 5/6
- Back BTTS in Middlesbrough v Sheffield United @ 10/11
- Back Under 2.5 Goals in Paysandu v Ponte Preta @ 4/9

The Acca pays approximately 4/1

No clean sheets at the City Ground

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Nottingham Forest v WBA @ 5/6 - KO 19:45 BST

Neither of these teams made the best start to their season on Saturday as Forest could only draw 1-1 at Bristol City and the Baggies were beaten at home by Bolton.

Aitor Karanka's side were pretty dismal in the first half at Ashton Gate, but they did improve in the second period and while they would have been hoping for a win, a draw isn't the end of the world.

A 2-1 loss in front of your own fans to a club who only narrowly avoided relegation last year is quite though, and West Brom really need to bounce back this evening.

I am not convinced that Darren Moore's men will be able to do that however, but I do believe that they will at least get on the scoresheet, in a match that will hopefully have goals at both ends - making it two from two for BTTS backers in Forest and WBA games.

Blades to take advantage of leaky Boro defence

Bet 2: Back BTTS in Middlesbrough v Sheffield United @ 10/11 - KO 19:45 BST

More goals in the Championship tonight in the other fixture, that is being played at the Riverside between Middlesbrough and Sheffield United.

The hosts needed two late goals to rescue a point at Millwall on Saturday and it would appear that Tony Pulis hasn't been able to improve on the team's defending - which is usually the first thing he does when he is appointed as manager.

Under his guidance last year, the Boro only kept four clean sheets from their final 12 home matches, but they were generally pretty free-scoring themselves - two or more scored themselves on seven occasions during the same period.

The Blades were also involved in a BTTS affair at the weekend as they went down 2-1 at home to Swansea - in a game which they led.

Chris Wilder's side shouldn't be ruled out for promotion this year and I can definitely see some goals this evening between these two teams who should be in the Play-off picture.


Goals at a premium in Brazil

Bet 3: Back Under 2.5 Goals in Paysandu v Ponte Preta @ 4/9 - KO 01:30 BST (Wed)

We conclude in South America for a late-night, Brazilian Serie B clash that appears to be a nailed on, low-scoring affair.

Paysandu are 11th in the table at the halfway stage of the campaign and with only 19 goals scored in 19 games, a total of 13 of their fixtures have seen this selection land.

If we concentrate solely on their home matches then seven of their nine have had two goals or less, and they come into this game in good defensive shape on this ground. In their two latest outings, they kept clean sheets against the teams who are currently fifth and sixth, in 1-0 and 2-0 wins.

The visitors are 10th in the standings and they have managed only one goal more than their opponents here - and they have conceded four less.

Their matches this term are averaging dead on two goals per game, with 14 of their 19 going under 2.5 - including seven of their last eight on the road.
