Football betting picks today brings the top tips from the Premier League and beyond. It’s a relatively quiet night in terms of high-quality action.

But we are going to be looking at both of the Premier League fixtures that are happening on Monday night.

The third pick for today’s football betting tips is going to come from the Portuguese top flight.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Burnley v Wolves

The Clarets dropped back down into the relegation zone on the weekend on goal difference.

But this is one of two games that Burnley have in hand over the teams immediately above them.

The Clarets have banked a W1 D1 L3 record this season and this will be just their second game at Turf Moor this month.

Home and away Burnley are W1 D2 and they have vastly improved overall, having lost only one of their last six.

The four points that Burnley have picked up in this campaign have come from their last two, a win over Crystal Palace and a draw against Everton.

After so many problems defensively through the early part of the campaign, Burnley have taken four clean sheets in their last six.

Burnley are the 14/5 underdogs with bet365 for Monday’s game.

Wolves earned a late home win over Chelsea in their last league game, a result which saw them avoid falling to three straight losses.

They have dropped two of their last three away games, however, failing to score in defeat against Leicester and Liverpool.

There is a W3 L3 record that Wolves have earned on their top-flight travels this season and they are 23/20 for three points.

The three wins that Wolves have earned away from home have all been against teams who are currently in the bottom seven.

However, we think Burnley are in a bullish mood at the moment on the road to recovery and could grab a point.

Draw at 21/10

Football Betting Picks Today: Chelsea v West Ham

The Blues have hit a bit of a speed bump in their season having lost their last two games.

Those were both one-goal margin losses against Everton and Wolverhampton. Both were away games.

So they have lost some ground in the title race.

The Blues hold a W3 D2 L1 record at Stamford Bridge in the top flight this season and they are the 4/9 favourites with bookmaker Bet365.

A huge positive for the Blues is that they have averaged 2.3 goals per home game and they have scored at least three goals in four of six home fixtures.

None of Chelsea’s wins this season (home and away) have been by less than a two-goal margin.

It has been a five-match unbeaten streak at home that Chelsa have taken.

But they will have to tread carefully here as they lost last season’s home game against the Hammers.

The Irons have found some brilliant form lately having scored four wins in their last six league fixtures (D1 L1).

Their record on the road is W3 D1 L2 record and they have picked up back to back wins on their travels.

So they are a team in form at the moment and have taken a win against current second-placed Leicester on the road.

Adding more to the expectancy of goals at the Bridge, the Hammers have scored in all away games this season.

West Ham are W1 D1 L1 in their last three visits to Stamford Bridge.

They may give Chelsa an uncomfortable ride, but we do expect the Blues to bounce back to form on home turf.

Chelsea to win & BTTS at 15/8

Football Betting Tips for Today: Santa Clara v Guimares

Football betting for today moves on to the Portuguese top-flight next for Santa Clara v Guimaraes.

This is a top-seven clash in the league with Santa Clara looks to pull level on points with Gumarases with a home victory over them.

Santa Clara took a win at Nacional last weekend which was just their second win in their last seven league games.

Still, they have lost four of their last six, winning the other two, but the two victories in that sequence were away from home

For Monday’s game, they are at 17/10 with bookmaker bet365.

But is only a shaky W1 D1 L2 record at home that they have and they have banked just one point from their last three home fixtures.

There has been a slightly disappointing output in front of goal form them, as Santa Clara have scored 3 goals in their four 4 home games.

Bet at Bet365

Guimaraes have much better from behind them. They have won five of their last seven fixtures (L2).

Their away form has been great as well with an unbeaten W3 D1 record on their travels and they are 8/5 to collect the win on Monday.

They actually look a decent proposition having won their last three on their travels and have conceded just 1 goal in four away games in total.

Guimaraes to win at 8/5
