Tuesday's edition of the Daily Acca sees Paul Robinson oppose three heavy favourites and it combines to pay over 24/1. Here are his selections:

- Back Cagliari and Draw @ 10/3
- Back Brighton and Draw @ 9/5
- Back Celta Vigo and Draw @ 11/10

The Acca pays approximately 24/1

Have faith in Inter's untrustworthiness

Bet 1: Back Cagliari and Draw @ 10/3 - KO 19:45 BST

It's been a strange old season for Inter as after flying out of the traps, they had a run of eight games in December to February where they failed to record a Serie A victory.

Things have picked up a bit since then but it's still only four wins from their last nine, and their three latest results have been a pair of 0-0 draws and a 1-0 loss at Torino.

Luciano Spalletti's side are the heavy favourites to win at the San Siro this evening and if they want to qualify for next year's Champions League, they could really do with justifying their short price.

Even though they are facing the 14th placed, Cagliari, I just can't trust Inter to get the job done at present, and they didn't even score in their last three games.

The visitors will be buoyed by their 2-1 win over Udinese at the weekend, and they have picked up positive results in four of their last seven on the road.


Tottenham to drop points on the South Coast

Bet 2: Back Brighton and Draw @ 9/5 - KO 19:45 BST

The Seagulls aren't exactly flying their way to another season in the Premier League but their good work up until March appears to have been enough as they have 35 points with five games still to go.

I am sure that most people are expecting a comfortable Spurs victory at the Amex this evening but I have some slight reservations and 9/5 for a home win or draw seems fair.

Chris Hughton's side have only lost four of 17 in front of their own fans this term, and three of the last five have been wins.

Tottenham had their six match Premier League winning run emphatically ended by a wounded, Manchester City, on Saturday, but they still have a seven point advantage over Chelsea in the battle for next season's Champions League.


Barcelona to fail to win again on bogey ground

Bet 3: Back Celta Vigo and Draw @ 11/10 - KO 20:00 BST

An interesting fixture to finish as Celta Vigo could prove a bit of value to make it four without defeat at home to Barcelona - with two of the previous three being wins.

There may be a whopping 39 points between these two teams in La Liga but the hosts have only lost three times at home this season, and they come into the game on a run of seven unbeaten, which is bookended with a draw against Real Madrid and a 4-0 thrashing of Sevilla.

Barcelona managed to put their Champions League disappointment behind them by beating Valencia 2-1 on Saturday and although they are going to stroll to the title, I still don't rate them as highly as their domestic dominance suggests.

It's also worth noting that Ernesto Valverde's men have won just won of their last five away from the Nou Camp in all competitions, and two of their last five purely in La Liga.
