Jamie Vardy's injury time consolation cost Paul Robinson a 13/2 Daily Acca yesterday, but he's looking to make amends with a 13/1 shot that starts in the Premier League. Here are his selections:

- Back Wolves @ 7/5
- Back Over 2.5 Goals in Derby v Leeds @ 1/1
- Back Rennes @ 19/10

The Acca pays approximately 13/1

Dance with Wolves on Premier League return

Bet 1: Back Wolves @ 7/5 - KO 17:30 BST

Both Wolves and Everton have made plenty of new-signings over the summer and the pair of them are tipped to challenge for the top seven.

It is Wolves who have had the better pre-season on the field though as the Toffees have lost their last four friendlies - conceding plenty of goals in the process.

The hosts dominated the Championship last term and manager, Nuno Espírito Santo, has added plenty of quality to his squad. I can see them making a bright start to their campaign and I expect them to take the three points this evening.

Steve Rawlings is also keen on a Wolves win.

Goals all the way with Bielsa in town

Bet 2: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Derby v Leeds @ 1/1 - KO 17:30 BST

Derby and Leeds got off to winning starts last weekend as the Rams won 2-1 at Reading and United beat Stoke 3-1 at Elland Road.

Frank Lampard and Marcelo Bielsa could have exciting seasons ahead of them at their respective new clubs and the takeaway from their openers is that attacking football will be the way forward.

The visitors won't be scared of taking the game to Derby at Pride Park, as that's all Bielsa knows. That should give Lampard's side the opportunity to have some creative freedom themselves, and I think Over 2.5 Goals is too big at even money.

Rennes to take advantage of Lille's problems

Bet 3: Back Rennes @ 19/10 - KO 19:00 BST

Lille narrowly survived in Ligue One last term and due to the state of the club's finances, they have had a turbulent summer. Player sales have decimated their first team and although Jose Fonte and Loic Remy have come in the other way, the pair of them are both well past their prime.

The selection finished fifth last year and they ended the campaign with a seven match unbeaten run away from home. Four victories and three draws helped them climb the table, and they even beat PSG in their own backyard.

Sabri Lamouchi has strengthened his squad during the close-season, with Jordan Siebatcheu coming in from Reims for around £8m. The striker was Reims' top scorer last year in their Ligue Two winning campaign.

A final point is that Rennes did the double over Lille last season - winning 2-1 here and 1-0 at home.
