Today’s football betting tips are another mix from the Champions League and the Championship.

Those are the big two competitions in focus for Wednesday night’s action.

But we will also be heading to League One for the one fixture of the evening from there.

We have five tips for football betting today and we start in the Champions League where Chelsea will be looking to seal the deal against Atletico Madrid.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Chelsea v Atletico Madrid

The Blues earned a fantastic 1-0 away win in the first leg of this contest.

That was something of an unexpected result.

But it now gives them a huge advantage as they get back home for the second leg.

Chelsea are 13/10 for the win on Wednesday to put this contest to bed.

The last time that they hosted the Spaniards, there was a 1-1 draw and that will be enough for them.

The Blues are rock-solid in defence and are still undefeated since Thomas Tuchel took over.

So they have some claims here and it will take a bit of game management to pull them through.

This could be a decent time to be meeting Atletico again.

Diego Simeone’s men have taken two wins in their last six games in all competitions.

So they are not running as hot as they were (D2 L2).

So that should give Chelsea a helping hand in this contest potentially.

Atletico are only W1 D1 L1 on their travels in this season’s Championship League.

So that shouldn’t be anything for Chelsea to fear too much.

But it is the draw on the night that has the most appeal as Chelsea just look to close this out.

Draw at 21/10

Football Betting Picks Today: Nottingham Forest v Norwich

Forest are big 3/1 underdogs on home turf on Wednesday night.

They are looking for an upturn in form having only taken two points from their last four league games.

That’s not going to be easy taking on the leader leaders in midweek.

Forest have taken one win in their last six home games in the Championship (D3 L2).

So there isn’t any kind of form there and in none of their last eight league games have they managed to score more than one goal in a game.

Forest are averaging under a goal per home game this season.

With Norwich flying along on an eight-match winning streak, the away win has more appeal at 10/11.

The Canaries are just soaring towards the top flight at this point.

They have won their last four on the road, scoring at least two goals in each of those.

Home and away they have taken five clean sheets in their last seven.

So they appear to have a good chance of keeping Forest at arm’s length.

Norwich to win at 10/11

Football Betting Tips for Today: QPR v Millwall

This is one of the tighter-looking fixtures from the Championship on Wednesday night.

QPR are 6/5 to get the home win and they have been in decent shape at Loftus Road recently.

QPR have won four of their last six league home games (L2).

Each of the wins in that sequence were by a one-goal margin.

Only a third of league matches at Loftus Road this season have made it over 2.5 goals.

Bet at Bet365

So we expect a tight midweek tussle.

Millwall won away at Derby on the weekend to improve their away record to W7 D6 L5.

The Lions have lost only one of their last six away games in the Championship (W3 D2).

Impressively they have conceded at under a goal per away game in this campaign.

Millwall have taken a clean sheet in 44% of their road games.

They look as if they are good enough to league Loftus Road undefeated.

Draw at 21/10

Online Betting Football Tip: Blackburn v Bristol City

This is pretty much a mid-table clash in the Championship with little at stake.

Blackburn lost at Brentford on the weekend, their fifth loss in their last eight league games.

They haven’t won at Ewood Park since the end of January.

That’s a run of five games with no victory there.

But Rovers are the 4/5 odds-on favourites for this midweek home game against Bristol City.

Thee Robins earned an away win at Birmingham on the weekend, making it three straight road wins.

So they could offer punters a little bit of value for road success.

The away win in the match outright is at 15/4.

This will be the first meeting between the two clubs this season.

Given that City have scored exactly three goals in each of their last three away games, we are rolling with them.

Bristol City to win at 15/4

Online Betting Football Tip: Accrington v Sunderland

Lastly, for today’s football betting tips, we are heading to League One.

Accrington are the 14/5 underdogs for the win home turf.

They have been struggling for recent form and head into this having suffered back to back losses.

Accrington have picked up one victory in the last seven league games now, losing four of their last six.

So they are struggling, especially in defence where they have conceded at least two goals in four of their last six.

There are no issues with the form of Sunderland.

The Black Cats have dropped just two points in their last seven league games.

It’s been three straight clean-sheet victories in League One for them.

so they are hot right now and have earned a clean sheet in five of their last six games, home and away combined.

They have been defeated once on their league travels this season as well.

They look the more likely of the two.
