The best leagues in the world are back underway following the international break and Paul Robinson has a 7/2 Daily Acca from the SPL and the Championship. Here are his selections:

- Back BTTS in St Johnstone v Rangers @ 8/11
- Back Under 2.5 Goals in Birmingham v Cardiff @ 4/5
- Back Bristol City @ 40/85

The Acca pays approximately 7/2

Bet 1: Back BTTS in St Johnstone v Rangers @ 8/11 - KO 19:45 BST

St Johnstone went into the international break on a 2-0 defeat at Aberdeen. While disappointing, it's not the worst result in the world and prior to that they had beaten Hamilton 2-1 on this ground.

Hamilton also play a part in Rangers' recent form as their last game saw them thrash the Accies by four goals to one. That result enabled them to get level on points with today's opponents, as they sit in third and fourth respectively - six points behind Aberdeen and Celtic.

It's the goal-side of things that interests me though and this selection would have landed in three of the host's four at home this term. Things look even better when we look at the visitor's as both teams have found the net in all four of their away fixtures - and they have scored at least twice each time themselves.


Bet 2: Back Under 2.5 Goals in Birmingham v Cardiff @ 4/5 - KO 19:45 BST

This Championship fixture features two teams who have endured contrasting fortunes this year. The Blues have had a miserable time of things and have recently replaced manager, Harry Redknapp, with first team coach, Steve Cotterill, but they were still beaten by Hull on their last outing and are 22nd in the table.

Cardiff are right at the other end as they lead the way with 24 points from their 11 matches to date. Neil Warnock is an expert at getting teams out of this division and he appears to be working his magic at the Welsh club.

One of the keys his side's success has been keeping things tight at the back. They have conceded just nine goals thus far and their opponents have only scored more than once against them in one out of five away games.

Birmingham have a miserable attacking record as they have registered just seven goals in 11 matches and that has contributed to three of their last four at St Andrews ending with under 2.5 backers collecting.


Bet 3: Back Bristol City @ 40/85 - KO 19:45 BST

We conclude at Ashton Gate for what should be a relatively straightforward home win for Bristol City against Burton.

The Robins are flying this year and they come into the game sitting in fourth place - just four points behind the leaders. They are also progressing nicely though the EFL Cup and they haven't lost a match of any description since a 2-1 defeat at St Andrews back in the second week of August.

Burton on the other hand have lost three of their last four in all competitions, with the latest pair both being 4-0 home defeats. That really must be a concern for Nigel Clough and a trip to Ashton Gate is hardly the tonic they would be after.

This one might be a short price, but I really wouldn't be surprised if Lee Johnson's side won by two or three tonight.
