Today’s football betting tips are pulled from a real mixed bag of competitions, just because it’s that time of the year.

We have a look at a game from the Copa America to start off with as Colombia faces Peru.

Then it is league action for football betting today from Iceland and Ireland.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Colombia v Peru

Football betting tips today start with the game that nobody ever wants to play or has an interest in.

That’s the fixture in a major international tournament between the two semi-final losers.

It’s Colombia v Peru for that in the early hours of Saturday.

Colombia took Argentina to a penalty shoot-out in their semi-final match.

It means that they have not won any of their last five games (90 minutes) with a D3 L2 record.

Not exactly stellar stuff.

Peru were downed in a valiant effort against Brazil in their semi-final. That was a 1-0 loss.

Their form in contrast over their last five matches is W2 D2 L1 (90 minutes).

It wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see a lot of personnel changes for both nations here.

Peru won the last meeting between the two teams. Perhaps they will have the edge again.

Peru to win at 7/2

Football Betting Picks Today: Fylkir v HK

We are in Iceland next for football betting for today as we look at Friday’s game from the top flight.

Fylkir are W2 D2 L1 at home this season and they are undefeated in four.

So that’s not bad form, winning two of their last three.

In each of those victories, Fylkir put at least three goals in the back of the net.

The match outright market for this contest on Friday is pretty tight, however.

They take on HK Kopavogur who are one of the three teams beneath them in the standings.

They two have met already this season, playing out a 2-2 draw in early May.

HK are second from bottom and have suffered a run of three straight defeats.

Their defence has been a bit of a mess this season.

All six of their league defeats for the season (W1 D3) they have conceded at least two goals in.

They are without a clean sheet in nine fixtures and even though they are scoring consistently, are probably going to be let down in defence.

Fylkir to win at 21/20

Football Betting Tips for Today: St Patricks v Derry

Today’s football betting tips round off for the day in the Irish Premier Division.

There should be a good contest here between St Patricks and Derry.

St Patricks are third in the table after 19 rounds of action and have pushed on to a great W7 L2 home record.

They are averaging 1.9 goals per home game, while they have conceded at well under a goal per home fixture.

Earlier this season they claimed a comfortable 2-0 home win over Derry, before being held to a draw in the second meeting towards the end of May.

Derry have a bit of form going with four wins in their last eight (D3 L1).

So they have been hard to knock over. The very interesting thing here is their away form.

Derry are W5 D1 L3 on the road and won three on the bounce on their travels before losing at Dundalk in their most recent one.

Granted they don’t look as defensively sound at St Patrick’s. But they seem to be confident enough to pose a threat.

Draw at 14/5
