Football betting picks today is looking at just three fixtures as it’s a quiet night across most of Europe.

We are going to be looking at games from Turkey, Portugal and Spain for our selection in a mix of league and cup action.

We will begin today’s football betting tips in the Copa del Rey.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Girona v Lugo

This is action from the Copa del Rey in Spain with a clash between these two second-tier teams.

Girona are the 10/11 favourites with Boylesports at the moment to get the victory on the board.

They have won their last two home fixtures against Lugo, both of those being by a 3-1 scoreline.

Girona have only suffered the one loss in their last seven league games now and that was an away loss in the league.

Girona are W2 D2 in their last four home games and in that sequence of games they have not conceded a single goal.

Given that there have been fairly unimpressive forms on the road from Lugo, it’s easy to see the favouritism for Girona.

Lugo have won only one of their last seven road games this season.

The lone win that sequence happened in the last round of the Copa del Rey against Pulpileno.

This is a much tougher ask for them and the 16/5 underdog odds on them highlights that.

Girona to win at 10/11

Football Betting Picks Today: Fenerbahce v Alanyaspor

Next in football betting for today is this action from the Turkish top flight.

This is a game hand over the four teams above them in the table for Fenerbahce.

They have hit back to back wins so are on the up at the moment and are currently the joint top-scorers in the division.

A win will move them up into second place and they are a quote of even money to get that.

In Alanyaspor they are facing one of the teams above them in the table currently.

Fenerbahce are undefeated in their last four home games against Alanyaspor, winning two of the last three to nil.

They collected a 4-1 home win over Basaksehir in their last home fixture, ending a three-match losing streak on home turf in the league.

Alanyaspor have only claimed two wins in their last seven league fixtures (D1 L4) so they have gone off the boil a little bit.

It is a four-match losing streak that they are struggling along on at the moment, scoring just two goals in that sequence.

It’s that lack of current road form which just leaves a question mark over them as 14/5 underdogs with Boylesports.

Fenerbahce to win at even money

We are rounding off today’s football betting tips with a look at this clash of Nacional v Sporting from the Portuguese top flight.

On home turf they have won two of their last three (L1) but those successes came against teams beaten them in the standings.

They are on a three match winning streak at the moment and on their travels have dropped only two points.

Sporting have scored at an average of more than two goals per game on their travels.

They have also taken a clean sheet in half of their road games.
