Today’s football betting tips are from a quieter day of action on Thursday night, which is a gap between the recent international scene in Europe and the return of domestic league action.

Filling in that space, we have three football betting tips for the day.

Those are all matches from the World Cup South American Qualifiers as the race for a top-four finish there hots up.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Uruguay v Ecuador

Football betting tips today start with Uruguay as they play host to Ecuador in a big duel inside the top four.

Uruguay have taken a W3 D3 L2 record so far, leaving them trailing Ecuador by a point in the standings.

In their most recent qualifier, Uruguay took a 4-2 home win over Bolivia.

Uruguay are undefeated in their last six matches and have lost only one of their last nine.

Nine of the last ten matches involving Uruguay have ended under 2.5 goals.

Ecuador lost 4-0 on their last trip to Uruguay and have won only one of their last nine fixtures.

Earlier in this World Cup qualification campaign, however, Ecuador thumped Uruguay 4-2.

Ecuador are W3 L2 in their last five against Uruguay.

Both Ecuador and Uruguay lost in the Quarter Finals of the summer’s Copa America and we don’t see a lot between them.

Each of the last five meetings have been won by the home side. But we think that the match draw is in play here.

It’s going to be to Ecuador’s advantage to dig out an away point.

Draw at 12/5

Football Betting Picks Today: Paraguay v Venezuela

On to the next selection for Football betting for today which is going to be another draw.

Paraguay did scrap their way to the Quarter Finals of this year’s Copa America.

On their recent return to the World Cup qualifiers, they have since lost against Ecuador and picked up a point against Colombia.

Paraguay are sitting sixth in the qualification table, four points outside of the top four.

This is just a big opportunity for them to improve on their W1 D5 L1 record earned so far.

Paraguay take on Venezuela who are bottom of the table with just four points on the board from eight matches.

Venezuela had a poor time of things at the Copa America, not making any impact.

They have lost their two World Cup qualifiers since then.

Venezuela have scored just four goals in their eight qualifiers.

Paraguay are stuttering in front of goal as well, averaging under a goal per qualifier.

Draw at 13/5

Football Betting Tips for Today: Colombia v Chile

The last three times that Colombia has played a host to Chile, there has been a 0-0 draw.

Will that change as we look at the latest fixture between them for today’s football betting tips?

Colombia are W2 D4 L2 in their World Cup qualification campaign so far.

They have gone undefeated in their last five matches, including their finish at the Copa America.

It was a third-place finish at the tournament.

Bet at Bet365

Colombia netted a late equaliser on their road trip to Chile earlier in this qualification campaign, after having taken the lead early in the match.

In their latest action, they played out a frustrating 1-1 draw with Bolivia, unable to close out the match.

It is a W1 D1 L1 record from their three home qualifiers on the road to the 2021 World Cup.

Chile have looked a little less convincing, stuck on just the one victory in their eight qualifiers and averaging just a goal per fixture.

They have not won any of their last five games, losing three on the spin in that sequence.

In defeat against Brazil and a draw against Ecuador in their latest qualifiers.

That’s four games in a row now in which Chile have failed to score.

Colombia to win at 3/4
