Today’s football betting tips focus on league action from a couple of divisions from continental Europe.

It’s Norway and Sweden that we are visiting for Sunday’s action.

For football betting today we have one selection from the Norwegian top flight and the other two from Sweden.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Lillestrom v Molde

League leaders Molde could face a tricky game out on the road on Sunday in the Norwegian top flight.

Molde collected a 5-0 home win over Odd last time out, improving a superb record for the season.

Molde are W3 D2 L1 on their travels so far. That defeat happened in their last away game.

It was a 1-0 loss at Sarpsborg in a surprise result.

Strangely the three away games that I have failed to win have come against teams in the bottom five.

Molde are averaging 2.5 goals per game this season, so they carry the scoring threat to bounce back.

They are undefeated in their last three visits to Lillestrom, winning two of those.

But they are facing Lillestrom who are in good shape at the moment.

Lillestrom moved on to a six-match undefeated streak with a good point away at third-placed Valerenga last time out.

They carry a positive W4 L1 record at home this season so they may be able to hold out and avoid defeat.

Our first pick for football betting tips today leans towards a share of the points.

Draw at 13/5

Football Betting Picks Today: AIK Stockholm v Kalmar

We jump over to Sweden next for football betting for today.

There has not been much consistency in the results from Stockholm recently as they are W2 D2 L2 in their last six.

They did win a great win in their last fixture which was on home soil. That was a 2-1 win over Varberg who are second from the bottom.

It wasn’t the most convincing of results but it left AIK on a W4 D2 record at home this season.

So that’s the kind of form that you would expect to see them pull through this fixture.

Three of the four home wins that AIK have picked up this season have been with a clean sheet as well.

Kalmar are in mid-table in the Swedish top flight and they have been finding wins hard to come by this season.

They have only taken one in their last seven (D4 L2).

Kalmar have lost one of five on the road, which is credible (W1 D3) but recently they have looked a bit rocking defence.

Twice in their last four games, they have conceded three goals in a match.

With only one clean sheet in their last seven, we think that the visitors fall to a narrow defeat.

AIK to win at 5/6

Football Betting Tips for Today: Halmstads v Varbergs Bois

Today’s football betting tips finish up for Sunday’s action with another fixture from the Swedish top flight.

This is an interesting one as well with Halmstads arriving back into action on a five-match undefeated streak.

They have drawn four of the games in that sequence so have just been lacking a winning touch.

It’s only two victories that they have recorded this season.

They have drawn their last four home games on the spin, moving them to a W1 D4 home record for the campaign.

That undefeated record is a big positive for them and they have taken a clean sheet in three of their five home games, including a 0-0 draw against Djurgarden who are currently second in the table.

Bet at Sportingbet

Varberg are second from the bottom in the table because of a very leaky defence.

They lost 2-1 at AIK Stockholm in their last fixture, leaving them with only two wins for the campaign as well.

There hasn’t been a clean sheet recorded by Varbergs since the opening game of the season.

They are carrying a W1 D1 L3 record on the road this season and those defeats have all happened in their last three.

In four of their last six league games (home and away) Varberg have conceded three goals in a match.

It’s those issues at the back that are likely to trip them up once again.

Halmstads to win at 19/20
