There was a big winner for Paul Robinson last week as his multi landed at odds of 9.78 (9/1). Can he follow it up with another? Here are his selections...

"Back Fulham @ 2.15 (23/20);

Back Bayern Munich @ 1.8 (4/5);

Back Over 2.5 Goals in Notts Forest v Watford @ 1.6 (3/5);

Back Under 2.5 Goals in PSG v Barcelona @ 2.05 (21/20);

The Multiple pays approximately 12.69 (12/1)"

Bet 1: Fulham (HOME) @ 2.15 (23/20)

This is a Championship relegation scrap and Fulham know that a win will all but secure their safety. The Cottagers have really struggled this term and they've only won two of their last 17 fixtures in all competitions but they've been playing better of late and have been unlucky not to pick up more victories.

Rotherham are one place above the relegation zone but they do have a four point cushion to Millwall behind them. There is a murky cloud hanging over them though as they are still to hear their fate for fielding an ineligible player earlier on in the campaign.

Steve Evans' men have lost five of their last six matches, and on the road it's six in seven. A trip to Craven Cottage won't be easy and they couldn't even beat them in front of their own fans earlier on in the year.


Bet 2: Bayern Munich (AWAY) @ 1.8 (4/5) - Live on Sky Sports 5 at 19:45 BST

This is a Champions League quarter-final and 2013 winners, Bayern Munich, should have enough quality to take a first leg lead at Porto.

The Germans have the Bundesliga in their control once again so they can concentrate on this competition. They have a huge amount of quality within their ranks and I can see them atoning for last season's debacle against Real Madrid and going all the way.

Porto on the other hand are a solid but not spectacular team. They lack the scope of their Champions League rivals and while they have a decent record at The Dragão, they failed to beat Shakhtar here in December and have generally lost when they've faced the better teams.


Bet 3: Notts Forest v Watford (Over 2.5 goals) @ 1.6 (3/5)

More Championship action now and I expect the goals to flow at the City Ground with Watford in town.

The visitors are chasing automatic promotion to the Premier League and victory this evening would see them move level on points with Norwich in second. That gives them huge incentive to win so don't expect a negative away performance playing for a draw.

Slaviša Jokanović's men have netted 84 times so far this season and with 48 conceded at the other end, their matches this term are averaging 3.14 goals each time. A whopping 25 of their 42 fixtures have gone over 2.5 and that includes four of their last seven away from Vicarage Road.

Opponents, Nottingham Forest, have little to play for but Dougie Freedman will be keen to see a reaction from his players following a spell of one point from a possible 12 on offer.

As far as the goals go, their games are averaging 2.95 goals per 90 minutes and 28 of their 42 have seen at least three being scored.


Bet 4: PSG v Barcelona (Under 2.5 goals) @ 2.05 (21/20) - Live on Sky Sports 1 at 19:45 BST

Another Champions League quarter-final now and despite it being odds-against, there are plenty of reasons to believe that the first leg clash between PSG and Barcelona will be low-scoring.

The hosts are without their main man, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and he is their only player to hit double figures for goals scored this season. Keeping a clean sheet will likely be their priority and I can't see them playing as open as they did during the two group games against them.

Barcelona seem to have regained their magic and the front three of Messi, Suarez and Neymar are really beginning to click. This is the big stage though and Luis Enrique will be aware that PSG could hurt them badly if they are too gung-ho.
