Today’s football betting tips moves onto a quieter Monday night of action after all the excitement of the opening weekend of the new English domestic season.

We are in mainland Europe for all of Monday’s picks in today’s football betting tips.

There are three picks that we have today, from Denmark, Portugal and Sweden.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Gil Vicente v Boavista

Football betting tips today looks at a game from the first round of action of the new Portuguese top flight.

Gil Vicente finished just one place above Monday’s opponent Boavista in last season’s campaign.

They were both in the bottom half of the table.

We are going straight to the head to head to see what that suggests.

Gil Vicente are winless in their last four home games against Boavista.

It’s a D2 L2 record in that sequence.

In last season’s top flight, they traded 2-1 away wins with Boavista and there were big struggles on home turf from Gil Vicente.

They only won four home matches throughout the campaign.

But then Boavista won only three times on the road (D8 L6).

The visitors are current heavy underdogs in the match outright for Monday night’s league fixture.

But looking back at their away record last season, they only lost twice against teams who finished in the bottom half of the table with them.

They could be worth a punt for an away win.

Boavista to win at 7/2

Football Betting Picks Today: Varbergs v Sirius

Football betting for today moves over to the Swedish top flight, which is in the 14th round of action.

So there is a current form to look at for football betting.

Varbergs have suffered only one defeat in their last five league games (W1 D3).

They are currently fourth from bottom, trailing Monday’s opponents Sirius by two points.

So far on home soil for this campaign, Varbergs are W2 D1 L2, but they are undefeated in their last three such games.

The two wins in that sequence happened against teams who are above them in the table.

Home and away against teams in the bottom half of the table currently, Varbergs are W2 D3.

Sirius have been having some struggles on the road in this campaign.

They are W1 D2 L4 away from home.

It’s been a three-match losing streak on their travels as well, conceding at least three goals in each of those losses.

So they most certainly don’t look to be the way to go. Sirius lost their one previous trip to Varbergs as well.

Football for Today: Nordsjaelland v Odense

We round off today’s football betting tips with a look at a match from Denmark.

So far in this campaign, Nordsjaelland are W1 D1 L1 in their three matches this season.

They got their first win of the season in their most recent match.

That was out on the road at SonderjyskE last weekend.

It is one point from two home matches that they have earned this season.

One positive for them is that they have not conceded a league goal in their last two games.

But this is a tough fixture for them and Nordsjaelland are the underdogs in the match outright.

In their last four home games against Odense, Nordsjaelland are W1 D1 L2.

Bet at Marathonbet

Odense hold the same record as Nordsjaelland from their three matches as well.

Their lone success happened on the opening weekend of the new campaign.

They have had tougher matches to deal with so far, having already faced the current top three this season.

So this should be a slightly easier fixture for them.

In last season’s league standings Odense and Nordsjaelland finished level on points in the middle of the table.

Odense won at Nordsjaelland 2-0 last season and they may have a shot here.

Odense to win at 6/4
