Today’s football betting tips have a big highlight in what is the League Two Promotion Playoff Final.

That’s between Morecambe and Newport and it rounds off all the promotion excitement in the top tiers of England.

We have more tips for today’s football betting on top of that.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Morecambe v Newport

Football betting tips today start with the big game of the day.

Morecambe and Newport will meet for a place in League One next season.

In the playoff semi-finals, Morecambe were pushed hard all the way by Tranmere.

After a 2-1 home win in the first leg, they were pegged back on the road and needed extra time to win the tie.

The Shrimpers finished fourth in League Two this season, missing out on automatic promotion by one point.

Interestingly they lost both games this season against Newport in the division.

They are winless in three against the Welsh Club.

Newport, who finished fifth in league two, five points behind the Shrimpers, faced Forest Green in the semi-finals.

They won the first leg of the contest 2-0 but were also taken to extra time at the end of the second leg.

Newport lost the second leg 4-3 after extra time.

There is not likely to be much between them. But we think that Newport could just have enough to shade this.

They had the free-scoring Morecambe figured out during the regular season.

Football Betting Picks Today: Vasteras v Brage

Football betting for today moves on to the second tier in Sweden for a pick.

We think there is a reasonable chance at a home success cropping up in his one.

Vasteras are undefeated in their last five league fixtures, winning three of those.

They have taken 7 points from the last 9 available on home turf.

So they should be able to handle themselves against Brage who have not had a great start to the new campaign.

Brage are W1 D2 L4 so far.

Their first win of the campaign happened in their last game, which was against the out of form Oster.

Vasteras should prove a much tougher hurdle to overcome.

Vasteras to win at 11/10

Football Betting Tips for Today: Portugal U21 v Italy U211

Today’s football betting tips are looking at a game from Monday’s U21 European Championships.

The competition has hit the quarter-final stage and we have a good one between Portugal and Italy.

Portugal U21 won all three of their group stage games.

In that, they scored six goals and didn’t concede once. So they are arriving in great shape.

For the first knockout stage, they go up against Italy U21.

The Italians came through the group stage undefeated with a W1 D2 record.

It was drawn matches against the Czech Republic and Spain that Italy opened the group with, before easing past Slovenia in their final match.

That big 4-0 win over Slovenia will have lifted them, but it is the Portuguese who look the more capable of the two.

Portugal U21 to win at 11/10
