The Acca pays approximately 10/1

Goals to flow in League Two

Bet 1: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Mansfield v Lincoln @ 11/10 - KO 19:45 GMT

This is a top of the table League Two clash that sees leaders, Lincoln, travel to fourth placed, Mansfield. The visitors are five points clear at the top, and with three earning automatic promotion, they look set to be playing in the third tier next season.

The hosts can move into third with a draw this evening, and this is their game in hand over the MK Dons. They couldn't have asked for a much tougher fixture, but at least they are at home.

I'm going for plenty of goals in this match tonight as Mansfield have seen three of their last five on this ground see over 2.5 backers collect. They have been in great form in front of their own fans as it's five wins in a row at the One Call Stadium.

Lincoln are unbeaten in seven on their travels, and five of their last eight away from home have seen this selection land. They scored two goals or more themselves in six of their last seven, and they will be aiming for another win here to solidify their place at the top.

Lens to pick-up rare away win

Bet 2: Lens @ 19/20 - KO 19:45 GMT

Lens don't have the greatest of away records but they have a great opportunity to turn that around tonight as they travel to Ajaccio.

The hosts are down in 16th place in Ligue Two and haven't won a game since a 1-0 win at Lorient on January 18th. They haven't been victorious at home since November 9th, and their previous win to that was at the end of August. This season they are operating at a 50% loss rate at home.

Lens are fifth, but as mentioned, their record on the road isn't great. They have won five times away from home this term, but it's just one in their last eight. Their overall recent form has been good though, taking 13 points from a possible 18, and I fancy them to move into third place thig evening with a win.

Goals at a premium in Argentina

Bet 3: Back Under 1.5 Goals in Banfield v Godoy Cruz @ 7/4 - KO 22:00 GMT

We conclude in Argentina for a Superliga clash between 15th and 14th that I think will have very few goals.

Banfield's matches may well be averaging 2.27 goals each time this season, but eight of their 22 have still ended with one goal or fewer, and in their last 10 home outings, they have only netted more than once on one occasion. At the other end they did keep four clean sheets during that period, and they only conceded more than once on two occasions.

Godoy Cruz come into this fixture having had three 0-0's from their last four games in all competitions. Their last two in this division were goalless, and nine of their 22 this year have seen this selection land. Away from home they have failed to find the net in their last three in the league.
