Paul Robinson is hoping that Christmas is going to come early today as he has lined up an 80/1 Daily Acca that would have him feeling particularly festive if it came in. Here are his selections:

- Back Over 2.5 Goals in Rotherham v WBA @ 3/4
- Back Nottingham Forest @ 1/1
- Back Over 2.5 Goals in Blackburn v Norwich @ 20/23
- Back The Draw in Cardiff v Man United @ 3/1
- Back Juventus & BTTS @ 21/10

The Acca pays approximately 80/1

Entertainment on the cards at the New York Stadium

Bet 1: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Rotherham v WBA @ 3/4 - KO 15:00 GMT

This one is all about goals. The Baggies top the charts when it comes to how many goals their matches are averaging in the Championship this season.

A total of 14 of their 22 have seen this selection land, and that has led to their games averaging exactly 3.5 goals each time. Their last three away from the Hawthorns were all 2-1 wins.

Rotherham's games are averaging exactly one goal less, and while only nine of their 22 have gone over 2.5, three of them have come from their last four on this ground.

Rangers to be beaten by the Forest

Bet 2: Back Nottingham Forest @ 1/1 - KO 15:00 GMT

Aitor Karanka would have been relatively pleased with the point that his Forest team got at Derby on Monday, and they will be aiming to return to winning ways back at the City Ground, following their loss to Preston the weekend before.

The hosts have been pretty solid at home this season, and while QPR beat Middlebrough last time out, it was their first win in five, and they were at home. On the road it's two points from a possible 12 of late, and they have conceded twice in each of their last three.

Get on Overs at Ewood Park

Bet 3: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Blackburn v Norwich @ 20/23 - KO 15:00 GMT

Back to the goal stats now as I'm confident of the ball hitting the net on at least three occasions at Ewood Park.

The visitors are Norwich and they have only been outscored by West Brom and Aston Villa this season. They have banged in 40 goals in 22 appearances, and a dozen of them have come from their last five away games.

Blackburn have seen four of their last five end with over 2.5 backers collecting and the same can be said for three of their last five in front of their own fans.

Warnock to ruffle a few feathers

Bet 4: Back The Draw in Cardiff v Man United @ 3/1 - KO 17:30 GMT

All the talk ahead of this game has been about Manchester United and that will no doubt feature in Neil Warnock's team talk - if his players needed any extra motivation.

Cardiff shouldn't be written off here as they have won four of their last five on this ground, and the only team to beat them by more than a one goal margin this season was Manchester City.

United will surely improve from the abject display they put in at Anfield last Sunday, but Solskjaer isn't a miracle worker, and I'm far from convinced by his appointment.

Kevin Hatchard has previewed this match in full here.

Another win for Juve

Bet 5: Back Juventus & BTTS @ 21/10 - KO 19:30 GMT

It's almost been a perfect season for Juventus to date as they have won 15 of their 16 Serie A fixtures and drawn the other. They are already eight points clear of Napoli at the top, with a further six points back to Inter in third.

Roma aren't doing as well as many thought they would as they are down in seventh, but they did get a win on the board at home to Genoa last Sunday.

I really can't see the visitors taking anything from their trip to Turin, but they do rarely fail to find the net on their travels, and the Old Lady have conceded goals in four of their eight at home this year - despite their success.
