There is another round of midweek Premier League action that we are looking at for today’s football betting tips.

The highlight of the night is going to be Chelsea v Leicester. That’s a huge clash at Stamford Bridge to try and lock in a top-four finish.

We will take a look at all four fixtures to come from the Premiership as well as action from mainland Europe.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Chelsea v Leicester

Football betting tips today start with the big game of the night.

There are a huge three points up for grabs here in the Premier League top-four finish battle.

The loser in this fixture is going to be under huge pressure with the in-form Liverpool waiting behind them to pounce.

Leicester beat Chelsea 1-0 in the FA Cup Final on the weekend, so this is a quick rematch.

Chelsea lost their last home league game as well, a big misfire against Arsenal which put pressure on them.

Are they starting to crack? We think that the Blues are actually worth rolling with in this one.

They have something big to prove and there is potentially an FA Cup hangover to come from Leicester after hitting such a high on the weekend.

This feels like another final as well. There has been one win for Chelsea in their last four at home.

But Leicester are without a clean sheet in any of their last six away games.

Their only win in their last three on the road was against a much-changed Manchester United.

Chelsea to win at 4/6

Football Betting Picks Today: Southampton v Leeds

Football betting for today stays in the Premiership for Southampton v Leeds.

This is a dead rubber with nothing at stake. The Saints have suddenly found a little bit of form.

It has been back to back league successes for them, both at St Marys.

They were both 3-1 wins as well, coming against Crystal Palace and Fulham.

This does look like being a slightly more difficult assignment for the Saints.

Leeds are in great form at the moment and have also won their last two league games.

The Yorkshire club have only suffered one loss in their last nine fixtures now and there were some extremely difficult fixtures in that run.

Leeds have tallied seven goals in their last two games, victories over Spurs and Burnley.

They can leave the south coast with three points.

Leeds to win at 11/8

Football Betting Tips for Today: Brighton v Man City

Brighton will be happy that they have avoided relegation and that they didn’t have to come up with points to survive from this late-season fixture.

The Seagulls can relax and enjoy their evening without any pressure.

It’s no great surprise that they are the underdogs in the match outright for today’s football betting tips as they face the newly crowned champions.

Brighton have conceded nine goals in total in their last two home games against the Citizens.

Man City won a seven-goal thriller against Newcastle in their last game, their first since winning the league.

Even if they aren’t at full strength they appear to have so much strength in depth that they remain firm favourites for this.

We can’t argue with that and the Citizens have to be potential acca banker more than anything.

Man City to win at 1/2

Online Betting Football Tip: Man Utd v Fulham

Football betting tips today moves on to Old Trafford to look at Man Utd v Fulham.

The Red Devils are heading to the Champions League next season, while Fulham are going back to the Championship.

This game has no meaning to either of them, but it still looks like a good banker of a home win.

Manchester United have lost back to back league fixtures.

Those were against Leicester and then a massive blowout against Liverpool.

They should find the going a little easier one would imagine as they host the Cottagers

Fulham are down and out and have just totally run out of any hint of form.

They have lost five of their last six (D1) and don’t look as if they are going to pose much threat at all.

Fulham have lost three of their last four at Old Trafford (D1) conceding at least three goals in each of the defeats in that sequence.

Man Utd/Man Utd HT/FT at 11/10

Online Betting Football Tip: F CpOpenhagen v Midtjylland

We are going to the Danish top-flight next for today’s football betting tips as well look for a home selection.

Copenhagen have won three of their last four league games (D1) so are in good shape at the moment.

They are sitting five points behind leaders Midtjylland but this looks like being a good opportunity for them to close that gap.

It has been back to back home wins for them.

The most recent of those was over Brondby who are sitting in second place.

With Copenhagen having scored at least two goals in each of their last four games, we think they are worth considering.

Midtjylland have won only one of their last four league games, losing two of those.

So they are just losing their way a little bit. The two defeats in that recent sequence were both away from home.

The telling one there was at second-placed Brondby in their last road game.

Midtjylland did claim a comfortable 4-1 home win over Copenhagen back in April. But we think the tables are turned on them.

FC Copenhagen to win at 7/5
