Things are a little quiet on the domestic front for Wednesday. But for today’s football betting tips we are looking at the two EFL Cup qualifier final matches that are happening.

We will also be heading to continental Europe to pull some predictions together.

There are games from Serie A and La Liga that we are going to be focusing on for football betting tips today.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Stoke v Tottenham

We will start in the EFL Cup for football betting for today. This quarter-final features Championship side Stoke taking on Premier League opposition.

Stoke are in good shape at the moment. They are knocking on the top six and are currently well in the promotion-push picture.

But the Potters are naturally the underdogs for this cup tie, to the tune of 11/2.

Stoke have won five of their last even home games. They have hit the back of the net in each of their last 10 home fixtures across all competitions.

Stoke have already seen off Premier League opposition in Wolves and Aston Villa during this cup run.

The Potters have not conceded in any of their four games in this season’s competition.

Spurs have won their last three trips to Stoke but their current form has just taken a little dive.

Tottenham have won two of their last seven games and are winless in three across all competitions.

It is a four-match winless streak away from home that they are currently on (D3 L1).

They need a bit of a boost, but they have the resources which should get them through this tie.

Tottenham to win by a 1 goal margin at 13/5

Football Betting Picks Today: Everton v Man Utd

This should be a cracker at Goodison Park as we look at Everton v Man Utd for football betting for today.

The Toffees appear to have hit their stride a bit with a three-match winning streak going at the moment.

Everton have knocked off Chelsea, Leicester and Arsenal in that run.

So they are in high spirits at the moment and are 23/10 to book a place in the EFL Cup semi-finals with a win.

The overall record that Everton have taken at home this season in all competitions is W6 D1 L2. So they look to have a good chance here.

In this season’s EFL Cup they cruised past West Ham 4-1 in the last round at Goodison Park.

Manchester United have had their critics this season, but their overall current form hasn’t been bad.

They crushed Leeds 6-2 at Old Trafford in league action on Sunday and that’s seven wins in their last ten in all competitions.

The Red Devils have been better away from home this season than at Old Trafford.

United have scored at least two goals in each of their last five road games.

They may have enough to squeeze out a win.

Manchester United to win at 11/10

Football Betting Tips for Today: Milan v Lazio

We are off to the Italian top flight next for today’s football betting tips for Milan’s hosting of Lazio.

Milan are sitting at the top of the table with a fantastic unbeaten return of W9 D4 for this campaign.

They earned a win at top-six side Sassuolo on the weekend. It continued their record of having scored at least two goals in all league games played this season.

Milan are 11/10 to get a home win over Lazio on the weekend but have lost their last two on home turf against them.

Their form at the San Siro hasn’t been the hottest though as they have drawn three of their last four league games there (W1).

Home and away, Milan have only taken one clean sheet in their last ten league games.

Bet at Betfair

So will that give Lazio a chance in this one at 11/5 underdogs?

Lazio have taken a W2 D1 L2 record in their last five league games and they have produced more away than at home in this campaign.

It is a W4 D1 L1 record that Lazio have taken on their travels going undefeated in their last four on the road.

The interesting thing here is that they have not faced anyone away who is currently inside the top nine.

Milan to win at 11/10

Online Betting Football Tip: Alaves v Eibar

Next is this Alaves v Eibar game from the Spanish top flight and it does not look to be a cut and dry affair either.

Alaves are just above the drop zone having lost their last two games in the league.

They are struggling badly to put the ball in the back of the net having failed to score in their last three.

So that leaves them at 13/8 to come up with three points in this home game.

The home record that they have taken is W1 D4 L2 and have drawn their last three, including holding out against Barcelona.

Eibar lost at home against Real Madrid on the weekend, snapping a five-match undefeated streak of form (W1 D4).

So there has been a lot of draws on their side as well, which does perhaps make their 21/10 odds on the road susceptible.

That loss against Real Madrid means that they have lost only one of their last seven in all competitions.

Draw at 15/8

Online Betting Football Tip: Real Madrid v Granada

We will round off football betting for today with a look at Real Madrid v Granada which looks interesting.

That’s because both teams are carrying good form at the moment.

Real Madrid have won their last five games in all competitions and it’s three straight wins at home for them.

Real Madrid have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven home games.

Each of their last three wins have been by a margin of at least two goals.

They have won their last four home games against Granada and in those four games, they have tallied 19 goals.

Real Madrid are 1/3 are odds-on to win.

Granada have won their last three games in all competitions.

From their six away games this season in La Liga, Granada have taken two wins (D1 L3).

It has only been 5 goals that they have scored on their travels which is where they are likely to fall down.

They have also failed to win any of their games against teams currently in the top half of the table.

Real Madrid to win to nil at 11/10
