The top game for today’s best football betting tips is the League two Playoff clash between Tranmere and Morecambe.

The big build-up towards the final weekend of the Premier League season is on. The waters are a little calmer on Thursday night.

There is no top-flight action to look forward to, so along with the League Two playoff match, for today’s football betting we scour the rest of Europe for tips.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Tranmere v Morecambe

Football betting tips today opens up with a look at Tranmere v Morecambe, a League Two playoff match.

Of the four teams in the playoffs, these are the two most in form.

Tranmere have posted a W2 D2 L2 record in their last six games, so haven’t quite been firing on all cylinders.

It has been just two victories for them in their last eleven league fixtures.

But as a positive they are undefeated in their last six league fixtures, winning two of those.

That form doesn’t match the output from Morecambe recently.

The Shrimpers finely closed the season, winning five of their last six games.

The only defeat in the sequence was against Bolton, who just pipped them to the final automatic promotion spot.

Morecambe have won their last two on the road. They have scored at least two goals in all but one of their last six games.

They look to have the bigger momentum and did win 1-0 at Tranmere earlier this season as well.

Morecambe to win at 11/5

Football Betting Picks Today: Malaga v Girona

Football betting for today continues as we move over to the Spanish second division.

We are pulling towards an away win in this fixture.

Girona are in the mix for a top-six finish, looking in good shape for the playoffs. They earned a 1-0 win over Sporting Gijon in a big clash on Monday.

So that has given them a great further boost of confidence. It moved Girona on to a five-match winning streak of from.

It has been a wonderful five-match winnings streak from Girona on home soil and they are undefeated in seven there as well.

It’s been back to back road wins for them as well. Home and away Girona have taken a clean sheet in four of their last five games.

Malaga are down in the bottom half of the table and without a win in five (D2 L3).

They have collected one victory in their last five on home soil (D2 L2).

There was an away victory for Malaga over Girona earlier this season.

But given that their visitors have a lot more to play for we are expecting Girona to turn the tables on them.

Girona to win at 21/02

Football Betting Tips for Today: Zaragoza v Castellon

The third and final pick for today’s football betting tips is going to be a home win for Zaragoza, still in the Spanish second tier.

Zaragoza are undefeated in their last four games, drawing three of those.

They have lost only one league game since mid-March, posting a W4 D5 L1 in their last ten.

That’s been an excellent return.

They are down in the bottom half of the table and mathematically not safe, sitting six points clear of the drop zone with three to play.

But this is a good chance for them to potentially book safety.

Zaragoza are facing Castellon who are in bigger relegation danger.

They have lost their last two and are winless in four. Castellon are just out of the drop zone on goal difference only.

The away form of Castellon this season is pretty dire at W2 D7 L10.

They have taken one point from their last three road games. We think they leave Zaragoza empty-handed.

Zaragoza to win at 17/20
