It was only a late penalty for West Brom that denied Paul Robinson a 29/1 Daily Acca winner yesterday, and he's aiming for compensation today with a massive 43/1 shot. Here are his selections:

- Back The Draw & BTTS in Crystal Palace v Bournemouth @ 10/3
- Back Lyon & BTTS @ 11/4
- Back Man City & BTTS @ 17/10

The Acca pays approximately 43/1

Entertaining draw at Selhurst Park

Bet 1: Back The Draw & BTTS in Crystal Palace v Bournemouth @ 10/3 - KO 19:30 GMT

The Eagles returned to winning ways on Saturday as they went to Burnley and won 2-0. Wilfried Zaha scored for the second successive game, and while the cynic in me might say that his form is improving just before the transfer window, it bodes well for Palace in the short-term anyway.

Bournemouth fell to a third straight defeat at the weekend, as they went down 3-2 at Tottenham. They also found the net in their two previous defeats, so scoring goals hasn't been the issue.

I can't see either of these sides keeping a clean sheet this evening, but I doubt that there will be much between the teams.

Lyon to edge out Lille

Bet 2: Back Lyon & BTTS @ 11/4 - KO 20:00 GMT

Lyon and Lille both won at the weekend, and they are locked together on 22 points in seventh and eighth in Ligue One.

The visitors have a pretty terrible away record this year though, as they have played seven, drawn two and lost five. Interestingly however, they have scored in four of their last five on their travels.

The hosts had been going through a bit of a rough patch at home, but back to back wins over Metz and Nice have them back on an even keel, and while I can't see them keeping a clean sheet tonight, they should take the all-important three points.

City to do enough at Turf Moor

Bet 3: Back Man City & BTTS @ 17/10 - KO 20:15 GMT

Manchester City dropped more points on Saturday, as they could only draw at Newcastle. They have now won just one of their last five in all competitions, and they will again be without Sergio Aguero tonight.

I still expect them to get the win at Turf Moor though, as Burnley's good run came to an end on this ground at the weekend. They were pretty poor in their 2-0 loss to Crystal Palace, but they do at least usually find the net in front of their own fans.
