It's all about the goals for Paul Robinson's Daily Acca today as he is wanting the net to burst in France, England and Spain. Here are his selections:

- Back BTTS in Auxerre v Nimes @ 4/5
- Back BTTS in Chelsea v West Brom @ 11/10
- Back Over 3.5 Goals in Deportivo v Betis @ 6/4

The Acca pays approximately 17/2

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Auxerre v Nimes @ 4/5 - KO 19:45 GMT

The hosts are 12th in Ligue Two but their recent form is good with three wins and two draws from their last five fixtures. Their chances of promotion are pretty much gone though and that was largely down to a run of results that saw them lose five and draw two of their seven matches before their upturn in form.

Nimes are in a bit of an opposite situation as they are in fourth - and would move into second with a win this evening - but they have taken just one point from their last three games and won just two of their last six.

It's all about the goals as far as I'm concerned though and as this selection would have landed in four of Auxerre's last five at home and five of Nimes' last seven on their travels, I have to think that the 4/5 is an excellent price for both teams to score.

Bet 2: Back BTTS in Chelsea v West Brom @ 11/10 - KO 20:00 GMT

All eyes will be on Stamford Bridge this evening as Chelsea aim to bounce back from two embarrassing defeats against a West Brom team who are in desperate need of points.

The Blues were beaten 3-0 by Bournemouth when they were last in action at home and they followed it up with a 4-1 loss at Watford the following Monday. Conceding seven goals in two matches must be a concern for Antonio Conte and as West Brom can't really afford to play for a 0-0, the Chelsea defence should come under pressure again tonight.

Alan Pardew's men have netted in three of their last four on the road and they have only kept two away clean sheets all season - one of which was way back in August. I appreciate that the hosts hadn't been conceding many goals at home prior to the Bournemouth game, but their defence looks especially shaky at present.

Bet 3: Back Over 3.5 Goals in Deportivo v Betis @ 6/4 - KO 20:00 GMT

Deportivo La Coruna are in miserable form and they are in danger of being relegated from La Liga. They are second from bottom - three points adrift of safety - and while they have a game in hand, I wouldn't back them to get the victory.

Real Betis have had a strange season as they have either looked brilliant or total rubbish. Their inconsistency is highlighted by the fact that they have only drawn three of their 22 matches this term and their last seven results were four wins and three defeats.

As far as the goals go, three of Deportivo's last five at home have had at least four goals and their matches this term are averaging 3.41 goals each time - the third highest in the entire division.

The team with the second highest average at the 3.73 mark is Betis and 11 of their 22 outings have gone Over 3.5 - which is the same for their opponents today. It's also worth noting that four of those 11 have come from their seven latest away games.
