Today’s football betting tips will take a look at the two outstanding FA Cup fixtures for this round.

That’s Wolves v Southampton and Barnsley v Chelsea.

For the rest of the picks for football betting today we are taking trips to Spain and France for some cup action as well.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Wolves v Southampton

We have a very interesting FA Cup tie here as neither Wolves or Southampton have been in great shape.

But a place in the quarterfinals of the famous trophy is at stake.

Wolves are 11/8 to get the win on the board and have shown signs of recovery a little bit.

A home win over Arsenal in the league and a draw against Leicester has seen better fortunes from Wolves.

But that is only a W2 D2 L3 return in their last seven games in all competitions.

At Molineux, they have taken two wins in their last six fixtures, including a third-round win over Crystal Palace.

Southampton have slumped to a four-match losing streak and are the 21/10 underdogs.

Their defence has fallen apart having conceded at least three goals in three of their last four games.

It’s not been good enough at all from them recently and we would have plump for the home win.

Wolves to win at 11/8

Football Betting Picks Today: Barnsley v Chelsea

This FA Cup tie in today’s football betting tips does look to be a bit of a foregone conclusion really.

Chelsea have been rock solid under new manager Tomas Tuchal, posting a W1 D3 record under him.

The Blues have conceded just the one goal in that sequence as well.

With the Premier League side at 3/10 odds-on, there’s little value in the match outright on them.

Do Barnsley pose enough of a threat to hint at a “Cupset”?

The Tyke are only W2 D2 L2 in their last six games in all competitions

Those two wins were home successes in the FA Cup against Tranmere and then an upset against Norwich.

The Championship side have won five of their last seven at Oakwell (D1 L1) this, of course, represents a big step up in quality of opposition.

Barnsley have scored at least two goals in five of tier last seven league games.

In case Tuchel shuffles his side, we are going for a bold punt of both teams getting on the scoresheet.

Football Betting Tips for Today: Athletic Bilbao v Levante

We are heading to Spain next for football betting tips for today as we look at the Copa del Rey.

This is the first leg of this semi-final tussle.

Athletic Bilbao are the 17/20 odds-on favourites to win this first leg on home soil.

They are on a three-match winning streak at home against Levante and won away against them this season in the league already.

Bilbao’s home form is a little patchy, failing to find consistency.

But they have dropped only one of their last eight games in all competitions.

That’s home and away and it includes their surprise Spanish Super Cup title.

But Levante are no pushovers. Even though they have been pegged as the 3/1 underdogs.

They are undefeated in their last nine games in all competitions (W4 D5).

So they are stubborn and in the sequence took an away league success at Real Madrid.

With an undefeated five-match streak on the road, they aren’t going to go down lightly.

Draw at 5/2

Online Betting Football Tip: Angers v Rennes

This is French Cup action to round off our football betting tips for today.

Angers are 9/5 to get the win in this one, which is being played on neutral territory.

They have dropped four of their last five games though (W1 D1). So they aren’t arriving in French Cup action in top form.

But then neither are their opponents, which should make this an engrossing contest.

Earlier this season in Ligue 1 Angers did take a 2-1 road success over Rennes.

Rennes have the better form of the two. After a terrible patch of form when they lost 9 of 11 games, they have recovered well.

They have lost only one of their last ten games in all competitions, winning half of those.

So that has been some response from them.

This is an evenly matched tie but Rennes currently look the more confident of the two.

Rennes to win at 11/8
