THERE are two massive relegation battles in England and Scotland tonight.
I expect Blackburn's fate to be sealed by Wigan while Dunfermline could take the SPL drop fight to the last day with a win at Hibs.
So let's start with Blackburn v Wigan. Yesterday's results just about sealed Rovers' fate and they need two big wins tonight and away to Chelsea at the weekend to have any chance of staying up.
The Chelsea game is tough but they won't be relishing trying to match up to a Wigan side heading for a great escape.
Wigan's transformation has been amazing with wins over Man Utd, Arsenal, Liverpool and Newcastle. Roberto Martinez's men deserve to stay up and they are just about there.
I don't see them losing at Ewood Park and I'm willing to risk them at a biggest 19-10 at BetVictor and William Hill. Blackburn are 6-4 (various) with the draw 13-5 at Betfred. A safer punt is Wigan draw no bet at 10-11 with Ladbrokes.
Yakubu (5-1, various) is the first score favourite but I'm going with Victor Moses (9-1, BetVictor) or Shaun Maloney (9-1, various).
In the SPL the bottom two, Hibs and Dunfermline meet at Easter Road with the Hibees three points ahead and a better goal difference. So the Pars really need a win and could get it against an outfit with just one victory and 13 goals in front of their suffering home fans all season.
Hibs will want to get the job done tonight so they can start preparing for the Scottish Cup Final but Pars boss Jim Jefferies, who was in charge of Hearts for so long, won't make it easy.
His men have kept the race alive with a win against Aberdeen and draw at Inverness, keeping two clean sheets.
For two low scorers it's surprising there have been 10 goals in the three previous meetings this season – although nine of those strikes came at East End Park while the Pars won 1-0 at Easter Road. This looks an under 2.5 game at 1-1 with Skybet and you can have 5-4 with William Hill for the first strike in a tense affair coming after31 minutes.
No scorer wouldn't be the biggest surprise and that pays 12-1 at Skybet. If you fancy the Pars the man to back for the opener is Andy Kirk who has hit three in three games. The Irish ace is 8-1 at bet365.
West Ham host Cardiff in the second leg of their Championship play-off defending a 2-0 lead. They lost 1-0 at home to Cardiff in the league but I can't see them messing up now.
The Hammers won comfortably in Wales and I can see them repeating the feat, especially if they grab that all-important first goal.
There are several games in the French top flight with the big one at Rennes where title challengers Montpellier head.
PSG moved ahead of Montpellier on goals scored last night so Montpellier will be keen to restore their advantage but face a tough test at hope fifth-placed Rennes.
Rennes have won three of their last four and are competing with Lyon for fourth spot and will make it difficult for an outfit held at home to Evian in midweek.
Montpellier missed an injury-time penalty against Evian amidst scenes of mayhem and key man Younes Belhanda is banned after being set off during the chaotic scenes. That's a concern but maybe top scorer Olivier Giroud will step up to the plate after being criticised for not taking the pressure-pot spot-kick.
However, Montpellier have been in and around the top two all season and can grab at least a point that puts them back in the driving seat. Surprisingly Rennes are favourites at 8-5 with Coral while Montpellier are 2-1 (various).
At that price you can have Montpellier draw no bet at 23-20 with William Hill and they are 8-15 with Coral on the double chance.
So in three big games I'm favouring the away sides and could put on a small stake on the treble at odds of around 40-1 or more. It's a big ask of course to the double chance treble that pays £44.29 to a £10 stake at Coral might be the way to go.
Elsewhere you have to fancy third-place Lille at home to Caen, who are almost safe from the drop. Defending champions Lille have slim hopes of retaining their title and no bigger than 1-3 to win so look at them minus one goal instead. That pays better at 5-6 with Paddy Power.
For anyone looking at a game with goals consider Elfsborg v Gothenburg in Sweden. It's a game leaders Elfsborg should win as they attempt to make it six wins in a row and they are 9-10 at unibet. But Gothenburg have won three in a row after a terrible start so look at both to score (8-11, Coral).
Wigan draw no bet (8pm)
Montpellier draw no bet (8pm)
(23-20, William Hill)
Lille -1 (6pm)
