Today’s football betting tips all come from the UEFA Europa League qualifiers and there is some British interest.

Both Celtic and St Johnstone will be looking to secure a place in the next round of the competition.

We will take a look at both of those games involving the Scottish clubs as well as one other pick for the night in today’s football betting.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Celtic v Jablonec

So all the picks for football betting tips today come from the second legs of the Third Qualifying Round of the Europa League

Celtic are in the driving seat in this tie, having picked up a slightly nervy 4-2 away win in the first leg.

With a thumping of Dundee in the league on the weekend, things are looking up for them.

The Bhoys fell down from the Champions League qualifiers, getting eliminated by Midtjylland there.

After failing to win any of their first three games of the season in all competitions, it’s back to back wins in which Celtic have scored 10 goals total.

With home advantage on Thursday, the Scottish side will be expected to wrap this up.

This is the first time hosting the Czech side Jablonec.

Jablonec started their European campaign this season in this Third Qualifying Round of the Europa League.

The new season of the Czech top flight has started and in all competitions so far, Jablonec are W1 D1 L2.

They have shipped at least two goals in each of their last three fixtures played.

We don’t see Celtic having too much trouble.

Football Betting Picks Today: St Johnstone v Galatasaray

Football betting for today’s moves on to look at whether or not St Johnstone could pull off an upset.

This always looked to be a tough draw for them in the qualifiers.

But they acquitted themselves pretty well in the first leg to earn a credible 1-1 draw at Galatasaray.

Can the Scottish side build on that to claim a famous success?

St Johnstone are the heavy underdogs in the match outright for this game.

They have been in a resilient mood so far, drawing all three matches in all competitions.

Galatasaray slipped out of the Europa League qualifiers last season against a Scottish club.

That was at Rangers.

The Turkish side have played three matches this season in all competitions and are yet to win (D1 L2).

They are here because of having dropped out of the Champions League qualifiers after getting thumped by PSV Eindhoven.

This may well be another tight match between these two.

Football for Today: Anorthosis Famagusta v Rapid Vienna

Cypriot side Anorthosis Famagusta have a massive uphill battle on their hands.

They are big underdogs in the match outright, so we are passing them up for today’s football betting tips.

In the first leg, Anorthosis lost 3-0 in Austria and that should be about that for this as a contest.

Or is it?

Interestingly on the one previous occasion that why hosted Rapid Vienna, the Cypriots banked a 3-0 win.

That was the 2008/09 Champions League Qualifiers in which they managed to eliminate Rapid Vienna.

Bet at Boylesports

All three previous meetings between these two clubs have ended in a home win, with the winning team scoring exactly three goals.

Rapid Vienna were eliminated from the Champions League qualifiers this season against Sparta Prague.

That sent them down to the Europa League for a second chance of European football.

They are now seven games into their season, earning a W4 D1 L2 record in all competitions.

While there hasn’t been an away win from them yet this season, we are rolling with the Austrians to pick one up on Thursday.
