The UEFA Europa League match day one fixtures are going to be a large focus for Thursday’s football betting tips of the day.

There is a massive cluster of games happening and from the Premier League perspective, we have Arsenal, Leicester and Spurs all in action.

Scottish Champions Celtic meanwhile have a tough game on their hands as they face up to Zlatan Imbrahimovic’s AC Milan.

All of our picks for today’s football betting will be coming from the competition.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Celtic v Milan

This is no friendly draw for the opening fixture of a new Europa League campaign for Celtic as they face Milan.

Celtic dropped their first points of the new Premiership season on the weekend.

They were easily second best in an Old Firm Derby clash against Rangers.

So now they have to quickly turn their attention to Europe to try and get an early positive result on the board.

Celtic are underdogs for this one at Bet365 to the tune of 16/5.

They are meeting an AC Milan side who are in great form at the moment and they come in fresh off the back of a derby win against Inter on the weekend.

Also, back in 2013 Milan faced Celtic in the Group Stage and won 3-0 at Parkhead.

It is a three-match winning streak that Milan are on against Celitc at the moment and the Italians didn’t concede a single goal in that sequence.

We see a trend there and have to go with the away win for Thursday.

AC Milan to win to nil at 9/4

Football Betting Picks Today: Tottenham v LASK Linz

Spurs will have been massively disappointed at throwing away all three points in a draw with West Ham in Premier League Action on the weekend.

The Lilywhites had been 3-0 up with ten minutes to play. But still, the positives from that were that they looked fantastic in attack.

That’s something that they have done well with so far and Jose Mourinho’s men have tallied sixteen goals in their last three games in all competitions.

It’s been wonderful and they are blessed with an abundance of that attacking talent at the moment.

So even with changes to the starting eleven likely to come, they should be fine to pick up three points here.

Spurs are the 4/11 odds-on favourites to win this fixture.

LASK Linz are W2 D1 L1 in their four games played of the new Austrian Bundesliga.

It is hard to see where a really big threat is going to come from them in London and the visitors are 13/2 underdogs.

LASK Linz though did have a deep run in last season’s Europa League, getting eliminated in the round of sixteen by Manchester United, losing 7-1 on aggregate.

Tottenham to win & Over 2.5 goals at 21/10

Football Betting Tips for Today: Hoffenheim v Red Star Belgrade

This is an interesting fixture from the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night.

Germany’s Hoffenhiem come back into action having lost their last two games, both Bundesliga defeats by a one goal margin.

So they will be looking for a bit of a change of speed here and they are the 7/15 underdogs for this European action in midweek.

They had been on a decent bit of form before that, including a league win over Bayern Munich.

So they are good enough to come up with some kind of response and pick up a victory.

Red Star had to come through the Europa League qualifiers to get to the main draw and they are carrying form.

This has been a W4 D1 record in their last five games in all competitions.

However, the Serbians haven’t looked as sharp so far as they have done in the last couple of European seasons.

This is a tricky opener for them and they are hefty 6/1 underdogs with Bet365 to pick up a win in the game. We see them heading home empty handed.

Hoffenheim to win & BTTS to score at 15/8.

Online Betting Football Tip: PSV v Granda

PSV are leading the Eredivisie in the Netherlands and just look to be in great shape at the moment.

Their Thursday night game at home against Spanish side Granada looks to be one of the picks of the night between two decent teams.

Eindhoven are the 5/4 favourites for the win with bookmaker Bet365.

Across all competitions, PSV have won five of their last six games played (D1).

They did have to play their way through the qualification rounds to get to this stage, but have progressed comfortably.

In their play off round they eased past Rosenborg 2-0 away from home.

La Liga side Granda have shaped up well in the early stages of the new Spanish top flight.

It has been a W3 D1 L1 record that they have taken there, but all three of those successes happened at home.

But in the play off round of this season’s Europa League, they had to head out on the road to visit Malmo to play for a place in the group stage.

The Spaniards, who are 21/10 odds with Bet365 to win on Thursday, collected a good 3-1 win.

They may be good enough to avoid defeat in the Netherlands we are thinking.

Draw at 12/5
