Today's edition of the Daily Acca is a 14/1 shot that takes in a Premier League fixture and two from the Championship. Here are Paul Robinson's selections:

- Back West Ham @ 2/1
- Back BTTS in Millwall v Derby @ 4/5
- Back Nottingham Forest @ 7/4

The Acca pays approximately 14/1

Bet 1: Back West Ham @ 2/1 - KO 19:45 GMT

The Hammers are in need of a victory this evening as they were dumped out of the FA Cup by Wigan at the weekend and could only draw with Bournemouth in the league prior to that.

It's not all doom and gloom for David Moyes' side however though as they are actually five unbeaten in the Premier League and have lost just one of their last nine. A total of four of those were victories, but at the London Stadium it's just two wins in five.

Their opponents are Crystal Palace and after being written off by many following a disastrous start, Roy Hodgson has managed to turn things around. The Eagles are now up to 13th in the table, but with a mere six points covering 10th to 20th, they are far from safe.

In their latest away game they were blown away by an inspired Arsenal, but prior to that it had been three draws and two wins. I just feel that the hosts are the value at 2/1 though, as there really isn't much between the pair and they have home advantage.

Bet 2: Back BTTS in Millwall v Derby @ 4/5 - KO 19:45 GMT

Into the Championship now for a clash between Millwall and Derby that should see goals at both ends.

Millwall are unbeaten in four in all competitions as they have recorded 4-1 and 4-3 victories, and drawn 1-1 and 2-2 with Barnsley and Leeds. This selection would have landed on their five latest outings and six of their last seven on this ground have followed suit.

The Rams have fought their way into the automatic promotion places and are looking stronger and stronger as the season continues. They haven't lost in 10 in the Championship - six wins and four draws - and they scored 11 goals over the course of their last five.

Bet 3: Back Nottingham Forest @ 7/4 - KO 19:45 GMT

My final pick is a bit of a punt as Nottingham Forest have lost their last three in the league at the City Ground. What's surprising though is in the middle of that run, they beat Arsenal 4-2 there in the FA Cup.

The visitors tonight are Preston North End and although they were knocked out of the cup by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane, prior to that they had lost just one in 12 in the league - although six of them were draws.

Their record on the road this season is good as they have picked up positive results in 11 of their 14 fixtures. It's worth noting though that despite Forest's recent slump, they still have a win percentage of 50% at home this year, and if they play near their best this evening, they should be good enough for the three points.
