Today’s football betting tips kicks off yet another very busy week of action on the domestic front.

There is a flood of Premier League and Championship action to come throughout the week.

Today’s football betting tips start in the Premier League as Arsenal play hosts to Newcastle.

Over in Europe, we will be dipping into Serie A as Milan look to keep their title ambitions going and we will be rounding off things in Portugal.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Arsenal v Newcastle

The Gunners will be looking to jump up into the top half of the table on Monday night with three points.

Arsenal has started to find their form with a W3 D1 record having been produced in their last four league games.

It is only a W3 D2 L4 record that Arsenal have collected on home soil this season.

They were held to a 0-0 draw by Crystal Palace in their last league game at the Emirates.

Arsenal have won only one of their last four home games.

But they are a quote of 2/5 odds-on in today’s football betting to get the victory at bookmaker Bet365.

Arsenal have won their last four home games against Newcastle to nil.

So there’s a trend there and with the visiting Magpies going through a slump of form, the home win does look likely.

Newcastle have only gained two points from their last six league games and they have sunk into trouble with their away form.

The Magpies have lost their last three road games now, not having hit the back of the net in either of their last two.

Home and away combined Newcastle have scored once in their last four games only.

It is a W2 D2 L4 record that Newcastle have away from home and are big 7/1 underdogs for the win.

Arsenal to win to nil at 6/5

Football Betting Picks Today: Cagliari v Milan

It is off to Serie A next for football betting today. AC Milan have a chance to go back to the top of the table with a win.

They were knocked off the top spot on Sunday with Inter Milan beating Juventus in a high-profile clash.

Milan hold a strong W7 D1 L0 record away from the San Siro this season, a hugely impressive record.

Milan have been in great scoring shape this season averaging over two goals per game (home and away).

There is no surprise that they are going into Monday night’s game as the 4/7 favourites with bookmaker Bet365.

AC Milan have a W2 D1 record in their last three visits to Cagliari and they are facing a team who are struggling badly at the moment.

Cagliari have lost their last four league games and five in all competitions.

They are barely above the drop zone after a long ten-match winless streak of form on the board.

On home soil, they have lost three of their last four league outings (D1).

The big issue for them this season has been at the back. Cagliari have conceded an average of two goals per game this campaign.

There are only two teams in the league who have shipped more goals than Cagliari have done in this campaign.

It doesn’t look on paper as if they are going to have enough to hold Milan at bay and the visitors look a strong prospect.

AC Milan to win at 4/7

Football Betting Tips for Today: Portimonense v Belenenses

The final game of our selections for Monday’s football betting tips is this action from the Portuguese top flight.

Portimonense are the 5/4 favourites to win this one with bookmaker bet365.

They are sitting second from bottom in the league at the moment by goal difference only above bottom side Boavista.

It is only a W2 D2 L2 record that Portimonense have recorded their season.

But there has been an upward trend with their home form, taking 7 of their last 9 points there.

So that should pique some interest in them getting something out of this game.

Bet at Bet365

The two wins that they have taken at home came against Farense and Nacional who are above Monday’s opponents Belenenses in the league.

In fact, Belenenses are a place above Portimonense in the league.

They have collected only the one victory in their last dozen league fixtures. They are winless in five road games as well (D3 L2).

The best that they have come up with in games (home and away) against team currently in the bottom six have been four draws.

In that sequence of games, they have scored one goal.

Overall across the course of the season, Belensens have averaged 0.46 goals per game

They have scored one goal only in their six away games and may be picked off.

Portimonense to win at 5/4
