Today’s football betting tips are all from the Europa League as that takes centre stage for Thursday night’s football action.

Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United and Rangers are all back in action. But we are not looking all of their respective matches for our football tips.

For football betting today we are going to be solely focusing on what appear to be some fair-priced winners in matches.

We kick if all off in Scotland as Rangers host Slavia Prague.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Rangers v Slavia Prague

Newly crowned Scottish Champions Rangers gave themselves a good foothold in this tie with a 1-1 away result.

So they have an away goal in the bag and home advantage to try and make the most of.

Rangers are 11/8 in the match outright to get the victory.

This is their first game played in any competition since the first leg of that contest.

They are just in great spirits at the moment and are unbeaten in Europe this season.

It’s been a W9 D3 record from their Europa League campaign.

That’s W4 D1 from their five played at Ibrox.

Slavia Prague are a threat as they are also carrying some very good form.

They haven’t lost in any competition since December 10th at Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League.

In the last round of the Europa, they took a 2-0 win at Leicester in the second leg of their tie to knock out the Premier League side.

They are a threat, but Rangers may well be able to hold themselves as Prague are only W2 L2 in their four away games played in this season’s Europa League.

Rangers to win at 11/8

Football Betting Picks Today: Villarreal v Dynamo Kiev

Spanish side Villarreal are well in control of this tie now after a 2-0 win in the first leg.

We are looking at them as a solid home win option in football betting tips today at 8/15.

They have hosted Dynamo Kiev once before and that ended in a 2-0 win for Villarreal.

It has been such a strong Europa League campaign from Villarreal who are undefeated in this season’s tournament.

They are P4 W4 at home in this season’s Europa League, scoring at least two goals in each of those wins.

So this looks like being an uphill struggle for Dynamo Kiev.

We are not sure how the Ukrainians play their way back into contention here.

They are the 11/2 underdogs for the match win on Thursday.

They fell out of the Champions League group stage to end up here thanks to four points earned by giants Ferencvaros.

Dynamo Kiev are W1 D1 L2 in their last four European fixtures. We don’t see them turning this around.

Football Betting Tips for Today: Molde v Granada

It’s another Spanish winner that we are looking towards next in today’s football betting tips.

Granada are 6/5 for an away win as they look to close out this comfortable tie against Molde.

It was a 2-0 win in the first leg for Granada.

They have taken a good road record in Europe this season with a W4 D1 L1 return.

The one loss in that sequence was at Napoli in the last round, but Granada held out to win 3-2 on aggregate in the tie.

Bet at Sportingbet

We don’t see any upset happening for them on Thursday at all.

Molde have played just three matches since December, those all being in the Europa League.

To their credit, they pulled off a shock 5-3 aggregate win over Hoffenheim in the last round.

That included a 2-0 road win in the second leg, pulling off the win as massive underdogs.

But we are having a hard time seeing them as picking up a win as the 11/5 underdogs in this match.

Granada had them in their pocket in the first leg.

Granada to win at 6/5

Online Betting Football Tip: Young Boys v Ajax

Ajax are well in control of this tie against Swiss side Young Boys. It was a 3-0 win for Ajax in the first leg.

So they can head into the second leg, in a relaxed fashion. But they still look a viable option at 11/10 to get the win.

The Dutch side haven’t lost a game in any competition since December 9th last year.

They were in the Champions League group stage and dropped down to the Europa league from there.

It was a 4-2 win over Lille that they took on aggregate in the last round of the Europa League.

We expect them to be comfortable.

Young Boys are winless in their last five games in all competitions (D4 L1).

Clearly, Ajax is a step up in the level of opposition for them as well at the moment.

The quote on the home win in this match on Thursday is at 2/1.

In the last round of the Europa league, Young Boys pulled off a tremendous 6-3 aggregate win over Bayer Leverkusen.

They have won their last three home games in the Europa League. But this is a much tougher assignment.

Ajax to win at 10/11
