It's one from the Premier League and two from the Scottish Premiership for Paul Robinson this evening as he's expecting the goals to flow in the huge relegation clash at the Liberty. Here are his selections:

- Back Over 2.5 Goals in Swansea v Southampton @ 13/10
- Back Aberdeen @ 6/4
- Back Partick @ 23/20

The Acca pays approximately 11/1

Go for goals at the Liberty Stadium

Bet 1: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Swansea v Southampton @ 13/10 - KO 19:45 BST

Desperate times call for desperate measures and that's why I'm thinking that this match will have far more goals than what the stats of the two teams involved suggest.

I have written about this game in full here but I couldn't leave Over 2.5 Goals out of today's edition of the Daily Acca. Please click the link for all of the reasoning behind it.

Aberdeen to move clear in second

Bet 2: Back Aberdeen @ 6/4 - KO 19:45 BST

There is a three-way battle in the Scottish Premiership for the two Europa League places and also the runners-up spot behind Celtic. This match tonight between Aberdeen and Rangers will go a long way to deciding that, and I have to feel that the Dons are a bit of value at 6/4.

The hosts hold a one point advantage over the Gers, so a victory here would put Rangers out of the race for second, and it would also mean that Hibs will have to win at Hearts tomorrow to stand any chance of catching them as well.

Derek McInnes' side have lost just one of their last 10 at Pittodrie, and that was against Celtic. Seven of the 10 were wins and they have kept three clean sheets in their last four outings in front of their own fans.

Rangers are in somewhat of a holding pattern now until Steven Gerrard takes charge at the end of the campaign, but they did bounce back well from their 5-0 humiliation at Celtic by beating Kilmarnock 1-0 at Ibrox. They haven't won any of their last two on their travels though and while they do have a good overall away record this term, there is a feeling that they are beginning to run out of steam.

Thistle to get a much needed three points

Bet 3: Back Partick @ 23/20 - KO 19:45 BST

Down at the bottom of the Scottish Premiership, Partick are desperately trying to avoid relegation. They are two points clear of Ross County at the bottom, but even a second from bottom finish will see them have to play in the relegation play-off.

The aim surely has to be to move up one more place, and that means that they have to catch Hamilton above them. The gap is at three points with two games to play, so they absolutely have to win tonight.

Standing in their way are a Motherwell side who haven't really got much to play for. Since the splitting of the division, they currently top the bottom half and they can't go down.

Stephen Robinson's men were stuffed 5-1 at home by St Johnstone last time out and they have won just one off 11 on the road. Obviously the hosts aren't world beaters given their current predicament, but they are unbeaten in three and have taken four points from a possible six of late on this ground.
