The highlight of today’s football betting tips is going to the one Championship game that is in play.

That one sees Watford playing host to QPR as the Hornets look to keep up their push for promotion back to the top flight.

It is actually a quiet night around both on the domestic front and in the European big leagues.

So for the rest of today’s football betting tips, we will be pulling selections from the Portuguese top flight and Spain’s La Liga.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Watford v QPR

The Hornets are in a good position in the top four of the Championship at the moment.

They have dropped just two points in their last four games, so are running well.

Their campaign has largely been built on their excellent output at Vicarage Road.

Watford are W10 D2 L1 at home this season in league action and have put together a three-match winning streak there.

In the match outright for Monday night’s fixture, a win for Watford is at 3/4 with bookmaker Bet365.

Watford are unbeaten in their last five home games and their last six have ended under 2.5 goals.

That’s partly because Watford have three straight home clean sheets.

So this is a difficult game ahead for QPR and they are 15/4 underdogs for the win.

They hold a W3 D5 L5 away record this season but are undefeated in five away games (W2 D3).

Across the course of the season QPR have averaged under a goal per game, so that is where their challenge looks like it will fall down.

There was a 1-1 draw between the two of them at Loftus Road earlier this season, but we think the R’s leave Vicarage Road empty-handed.

Watford to win at 3/4

Football Betting Picks Today: Sporting Lisbon v Benfica

We are heading to Portugal next for today’s football betting tips. This is a big top-three clash.

Sporting are topping the table at the moment with a six-point lead held over third-placed Benfica.

Sporting remains undefeated for the campaign with a W12 D3 record.

In the match outright for football betting, they are at 8/5 with bookmaker Bet365 for the win.

So it has been a brilliant campaign and Sporting are W5D2 at home.

They have averaged over two goals per game, while only conceding 5 goals in their 7 home fixtures.

Facing Benfica is one of the tougher challenges that they get.

Benfica are undefeated in their last eight league games but have drawn three of their last four (W1).

So their form isn’t quite where it may need to be to get the better of Sporting.

Benfica are at 13/8 for the match win.

But they have averaged two goals per game on the road, so we expect this to be close.

Benfica have won their last three at Sporting. We think the tables turn in this one.

Sporting to win at 8/5

Football Betting Tips for Today: Santa clara v Belenenses

We stayed in the Portuguese top flight for Santa Clara v Belenenses.

It is the home side who are the 11/10 favourites for the contest.

They snapped a five-match winless streak with a win in their last league fixture.

Their away form though has been much better than their home form.

Santa Clara have taken only one point from their last four home league games.

Bet at Bet365

So is that likely to give Belenenses a chance in this one?

Well, they haven’t been doing a whole lot better.

After a run which saw them take one point from five games, they collected a win in their last fixture.

But their overall away form is only W1 D3 L3 for the campaign and they are the 11/4 underdogs with Bet365.

They have won two of their last three visits to Santa Clara (L1) but we just can’t split these.

Draw at 21/10

Online Betting Football Tip: Moreirense v Braga

One more game for football betting tips today from Portugal.

Braga are the 11/20 favourites to get the away win in this fixture.

They are a top-four side at the moment but have only alternated between a loss and a win in their last four games.

Out on their league travels this season they are W4 L4 and have dropped three of their last four road games (W1).

So is there a chance here for Moreirense?

They are undefeated in six of their last seven league games (W2 D4) so they do have a little bit of form behind them.

They are without defeat in four at home as well. The home record for Moreirense this season is W3 D4 L1.

So it’s not an easy place for visitors.

So while Braga’s form is shaky on the road at the moment an underdog home win may pique some interest.

Moreirense to win at 17/4

Online Betting Football Tip: Real Betis v Osasuna

We round off football betting tips today with a visit to the Spanish top flight.

Real Betis are in good shape at the moment with a four-match unbeaten streak of form going (W2 D2).

They have avoided defeat in each of their last four league home games, winning two of those.

Heading into this Monday night fixture against Osasuna who are just above the drop zone, Betis are 17/20 for the win.

Across all competitions, Real Betis have won four of their last six (D2).

Osasuna lifted themselves out of the drop zone with a victory in their last league game.

That was a precious three points at home against Granada.

They are a quote of 16/5 with bet365 to get a follow-up success.

Osasuna have lost only one of their last seven league games, which isn’t bad for a team in theirpposition.

But they struggle to turn positions into wins and only have a W1 D4 L5 away record in this campaign.

Real Betis to win at 17/20
