Today’s football betting will spotlight the big Premier League London derby of Tottenham v Chelsea.

That is the headline game of the night on a fairly quiet even on the domestic front in England.

So for the rest of today’s football betting tips we are going to be heading to mainland Europe for a look at things.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Tottenham v Chelsea

Back to back defeats in the top flight for Tottenham has kept them outside of the top five.

So there is a little icreased pressure on them as they host Chelsea in this London derby on Thursday.

Tottenham have lost against Liverpool and Brighton in their last two.

Their home record now stands at W4 D3 L3 with just one win in their last four.

In the match outright for Premier League betting, Tottenham are the 13/5 underdogs with Marathonbet.

The home record of Spurs is interesting this season.

They are only W1 D1 L3 on home turf against teams currently in the top eight.

So there have been clear struggles against the stronger teams.

When the two met at Stamford Bridge in November, there was a dour 0-0 draw.

Things have changed since then with Tomas Tuchel taking over at Chelsea from Frank Lampard.

So far in charge, he has seen the Blues take a draw against Wolves and a win over Burnley.

But that’s been back to back clean sheets for the Blues, a positive.

Out on the road for this derby match, Chelsea are 21/20 for the win.

Chelsea remain undefeated in their last six games against Tottenham in all competitions (W4 D2).

But as we’ve seen with a lot of big games this season, the draw should firmly be on the mind.

Draw at 12/5

Football Betting Picks Today: Braga v Portimonense

We are going to the Portuguese top-flight next for our football betting tips today.

Braga will be aiming to make the most of one advantage in this one.

It has been an excellent home return of W6 L1 from Braga this season in the division.

It’s a six-match winning streak that they have recorded there as well, so they are strong 2/5 odds-on favourites in the match outright.

Sporting Braga have only given up three goals in their seven home games remarkably.

So that has been a tremendous output from them.

Portimonense are down in the bottom half of the table with only a W1 D1 L6 away record.

It has been one point only in their last six road games, so it’s hard to see them offering up much resistance.

Portimonense are averaging under a goal per away game this season, which leaves us with a clear picture for football betting tips.

Braga to win to nil at 13/10

Football Betting Tips for Today: Famalicao v Moreirense

The struggling Famalicao badly need a boost of form having lost five of their last six.

For this Portuguese top-flight fixture, they are actually the even-money favourites.

It is only a W1 D3 L4 record on home turf that they have taken this season.

They have lost their three league home fixtures as well.

There has been no clean sheet at home for Famalicao this season, but home and away they have at least scored in three of their last four games.

Bet at Marathonbet

There have only been the two games between these two clubs and they both ended in draws in the 2019/20 season.

Moreirense are only W1 D2 L4 on their league travels this season.

That lone road victory did happen in their last away game, a 1-0 win at Nacional.

Shockingly that was only their second away goal of the entire campaign and a reason why they are underdogs at 11/4 with Marathonbet.

But then it looks really hard to separate these two and it appears to be a big risk backing either to come up with enough for a victory.

Draw at 23/10

Online Betting Football Tip: Real Betis v Athletic Bilbao

The final game for today’s football betting tips is coming from the Copa del Rey in Spain.

Both Real Betis and Athletic Bilbao are in decent form at the moment, so this should be a fascinating contest.

Betis are undefeated their last eight games in all competitions, winning five of those.

In the match outright for this quarter-final tie, Betis are the 11/8 favourites.

In the last round of the Copa del Rey, they collected a 3-1 win over Sociedad.

There has been a six-match unbeaten run of home form from Real Betis in all competitions.

They won their last home game against Bilbao 3-2 in last season’s La Liga.

There was a big 4-0 win for Betis when they went to Bilbao in this season’s league meeting.

Athletic Bilbao have won four of their last six games in all competitions.

One of those was the big one in lifting the Spanish Super Cup against the odds. They beat Real Madrid in the semi-final before beating Barcelona in that mini-event.

So they are in great spirits at the moment and are 2/1 to win this tie.

It has been one defeat in their last six away games for Bilbao, but with only three wins their last 12 on the road in all competitions (including the Super Cup) that’s a very different bigger picture.

Bilbao have no clean sheet on the road in any competition this season.

They may be where their challenge falls down.

Real Betis to win at 11/8
