The Daily Acca is a fourfold for Paul Robinson today and it pays a whopping 38/1. Here are his selections:

- Back Fulham @ 8/13
- Back Derby @ 10/11
- Back Burnley @ 6/1
- Back Juventus @ 4/5

The Acca pays approximately 38/1

Bet 1: Back Fulham @ 8/13 - KO 15:00 GMT

They may be underperforming this season but Fulham look like a good bet to beat Barnsley at home this afternoon.

The hosts have won three of their last five, including their two latest outings on this ground. They have drawn far too many matches at home this year, but they are only eight points from the Play-offs so all is not lost.

Barnsley have dropped to 20th following a run of two points from a possible 21 of late. Away from Oakwell it's two defeats from three and they conceded three goals in both of those losses.

Bet 2: Back Derby @ 10/11 - KO 15:00 GMT

The Rams are in excellent form and they produced a great performance to beat Aston Villa last weekend. That was their fifth win in six and they are now up to fourth in the Championship.

Derby have won their last two at Pride Park - both to nil - and they have only lost three of 11 there this season. Millwall won't be an easy team to brush past, but they should have too much strength for them over 90 minutes.

The visitors are yet to win on their travels this season, but they have drawn six of their 11 away fixtures. Scoring goals is their main issue and it's difficult to see them having much success against a defence that has conceded just one goal in their last four home games.

Bet 3: Back Burnley @ 6/1 - KO 17:30 GMT

This is just a pure value pick as Burnley should not be as big as 6/1 to beat Spurs at Turf Moor.

The Clarets have won four of their last five at home and they kept clean sheets in all of them. They have been doing the business away from home also this year and they are actually above Spurs, having collected one more point.

Tottenham were outclassed at Man City last weekend, but prior to that they had ended a poor run in the league by recording back to back victories over Stoke and Brighton.

Both of those successes were at Wembley though and on their travels they have taken just a single point from their last five Premier League matches.

Bet 4: Back Juventus @ 4/5 - KO 19:45 GMT

The Old Lady are back in the groove and hunting down Napoli at the top of Serie A.

After a slow start to the season that saw them lose their long undefeated home record, they have since gone on to win seven of their last nine, and they are now just one point behind the leaders.

Roma aren't much further behind as they sit in fourth with 38 points. That's three less than Juventus so if they can pull of an unlikely win this evening, they would be right in the title race.

I just can't see it though as despite the fact that they won their first five away games of the season, they were held at Genoa and Chievo most recently, and this is the sternest test in Italian football.
