For today’s football betting the big fixture from the domestic front is the EFL Cup semi-final match between Man Utd and Man City.

For the rest of the selections in today’s football betting, we are going to be visiting mainland Europe.

Serie A and Ligue 1 both have full night’s of action, while we will also be looking at the one game from Spain on a busy night of football.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Man Utd v Man City

The winner of this EFL Cup semi-final will face Tottenham for the trophy.

This should be a great clash between the two rivals as they square off at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening.

The Red Devils are 5/2 underdogs on home soil for success with bookmaker Bet365.

Manchester United have put together a seven-match undefeated streak of form in all competitions, winning five of those.

There was a 2-0 success away at Everton for them in the last round of the cup.

Back in mid-December United hosted City in the league and there was a dour 0-0 draw played out.

Man City are undefeated in their last eleven games in all competitions, winning their last four.

They were at their brilliant best on the weekend, taking a comprehensive away win in the league at Chelsea.

If they are anywhere near that, they could sneak it.

Football Betting Picks Today: Milan v Juventus

AC Milan will look to at the very least maintain their position at the top of Serie A on Wednesday night.

This is a big one for them as they face third-placed Juventus who really need to make a move.

Milan are on a three-match winning streak in Serie A as they remain undefeated for the campaign.

They have posted a W4 D3 record on home soil.

The scoring output of AC Milan has been superb, having hit at least two goals in all league fixtures played this season.

AC Milan are 15/8 to get a precious home win over Juve in midweek.

Juventus are trailing the Rossoneri by seven points in the league, so they really need to churn out a win.

They are 7/5 to do just that on the night with bookmaker Bet365.

The Old Lady has been in patchy form, however, having gone W2 D1 L1 in their last four games.

They are undefeated on their league travels this season, averaging over 2 goals per away game.

But with only one away clean sheet all season, that could be their undoing against the free-scoring Milan.

Milan to win at 15/8

Football Betting Tips for Today: Lazio v Fiorentina

This is a very interesting game up next for today’s football betting tips.

Lazio have won their last three home games against Fiorentina, but like their midweek opponents, are not in top form.

It has been one win for Lazio in their last five games and they have managed only two wins in seven home fixtures this season.

Lazio are currently quoted at 10/11 for the win.

So they have been far from sharp and have, in fact, been losing at the half time break in 5 of 7 home games this season.

Bet at bet365

All but one of their nine home goals has come in the second half of games.

Fiorentina are the 11/4 underdogs for a victory on the night.

They have claimed only the one league win in their last eleven league games, so the away win doesn’t have a lot of appeal.

But they have drawn three of their last four league fixtures (W1) and claimed a win at Juventus in their last road game.

The Viola could have enough for a draw.

Draw at 13/5

Online Betting Football Tip: Athletic Bilbao v Barcelona

Next is league action from Spain for today’s football betting.

Athletic Bilbao will kick off from 9th spot in the top flight, seven points behind Barcelona.

Bilbao have taken a W2 D2 L2 record in their last six league games and picked up a home win over Elche on the weekend.

That pushed their home record to W5 L3 for the campaign.

Four of those five home successes which they have collected have been against teams currently in the bottom half of the table.

The quote at Bet365 on them getting a home win in this fixture is 15/4, and Bilbao have won their last two home games 1-0 against Barca.

Barcelona returned to action this year with a 1-0 win at bottom side Huesca.

That moved them on to a six-match undefeated streak of form, winning four of those league fixtures.

It has been back to back away wins for them, both to nil as well.

The three home defeats that Athletic Bilbao have come without them having scored.

Barcelona to win to nil at 2/1

Online Betting Football Tip: Stade Brest v Nice

This isn’t one of the top fixtures from Ligue 1 on Wednesday night, but we like the look of the home win.

Home side Brest are in great shape on home soil at the moment. They have dropped just two points from their last four home fixtures.

It has been a W5 D1 L2 record overall on home turf that they have recorded.

Stade Brest have averaged over two goals per game as well on home turf, with four of their five home successes being by a 1 goal margin.

The quote on a home win in this fixture for Wednesday is 11/10 with bookie Bet365.

Nice are only a point behind Stade Brest in the league standings at the moment.

Away from home, they have claimed a W4 D2 L1 record.

But overall home and away, it has been four losses in their last seven league fixtures (W1 D2).

While their away form remains intact, we think that they are just a little vulnerable.

Stade Brest to win at 11/10
