Today’s football betting tips casts an eye over some of the Premier League action that is happening on the night.

For further selections, we will also be going to the Championship where there is another big night of action happening.

It’s five picks that we have in football betting tips today.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Burnley v Leicester

The Clarets suffered a heavy loss against Tottenham in their last league fixture.

That leaves them with just the one success in their last seven league fixtures. The lone win in that sequence happened away from Turf Moor.

Burnley have drawn their last three Premier League home games, but this is stiffer opposition that they face in this one.

The home form of the Clarets is W4 D4 L3 this season in the top flight, so nothing spectacular.

In the match outright for Wednesday’s game against Leicester, Burnley are a 3/1 quote.

That having been said, they have won three of their last four home games against the Foxes.

Leicester are the even-money favourites for all three points out of this game.

They had a setback on the weekend as they blew a lead at home against Arsenal to lose 3-1.

Leicester are still very well positioned for a top-four finish this season.

They have been impressive on the road taking a W9 D3 L1 record away from home this season and they are looking for their third straight league win.

Football Betting Picks Today: Sheffield United v Aston Villa

Bottom side Sheffield United fell to their fourth straight league loss on the weekend.

They were beaten by Liverpool and that left them fifteen points from safety and without much hope.

The last win that Sheffield United did record in the top flight happened at Bramall Lane.

That against West Brom who are second from the bottom. The overall home form of the Blades this season is W2 D1 L10.

It has been back to back home losses for them now.

The only three games in which they have avoided defeat have come against teams sat currently in the bottom four with them.

The Blades have an average of 0.7 goals per home game and they are 11/4 underdogs for the win in this midweek fixture.

Aston Villa are 21/20 and the more appealing proposition of the two.

There was a good away win at Leeds by Villa on the weekend, which was their seventh road success of this campaign.

The Villains have taken 7 of the last possible 9 away points available to them.

Earlier this season they claimed a 1-0 home win over Sheffield United.

Aston Villa have won all four games this season (home and away combined) against teams currently in the bottom four and all to nil.

The Villains have conceded at just an average of 0.7 goals per away game.

Aston Villa to win at 21/20

Football Betting Tips for Today: Norwich v Brentford

The Canaries made it five wins on the bounce on the weekend with an away success at bottom side Wycombe.

It is back to Carrow Road for them on Wednesday night for this top-two clash with Brentford.

Norwich holds a six-point lead over the Bees going into the match, so Norwich will be well on course for the title if they collect maximum points from this fixture.

On home soil in the second tier this season, Norwich have earned a W10 D5 L1 record.

It has been a run of fourteen straight league games at Carrow Road for them without defeat.

Seven of their nine home wins have been by a margin of just one goal and Norwich have earned a clean sheet in half of their home fixtures.

Norwich e a quote of 23/20 to get the home win on Wednesday in this big clash.

Brentford have rediscovered their footing after having spun out to a three-match losing streak.

It’s been back to back wins for them since then against Sheffield Wednesday and Stoke.

The pressure for them is from the teams who are scrapping right behind them to try and wrestle second place away from them.

So they really need to keep their form going.

Away from home this season Brentford are W8 D4 L4 but have dropped their last two on the road.

The Bees, who had that fantastic 21 match unbeaten streak of league form earlier this season, are the 12/5 underdogs.

That dip in away form could just be a difference-maker on the night

Norwich to win at 23/20

Online Betting Football Tip: Bristol City v Bournemouth

Bristol City have turned the corner, shaking off some terrible form to win their last two.

Will they be able to keep their momentum going on home soil in midweek as they play host to the promotion-chasing Bournemouth?

Bristol City are the 10/3 underdogs for the win on the night and that’s understandable.

The Robins have lost their last three home games on the spin, failing to score in any of those.

They had been on a six-match losing streak in the league recently, failing to score in five of those games.

Their little recovery has been in back to back away wins, so they still have to prove home form again.

Bournemouth claimed a 1-0 home win over Bristol City earlier this season.

Their form has gone very inconsistent but on the weekend they claimed a monumental three points by beating Watford 1-0 at the Vitality.

That kept them in the top six and the victory came against a team who were in third place and were on a four-match winning streak.

Bournemouth have only won four times on the road this season but they are 17/20 odds-on to claim all three points from this fixture.

With a little more enterprise having been shown by the Robins recently, we think this ends in a stalemate.

Draw at 5/2

Online Betting Football Tip: Sheffield Wednesday v Rotherham

The final game of football betting for today is from the Championship also as we look at a basement battle between Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham.

The Owls have fallen to a four-match losing streak in the league and they are sitting second from bottom.

Rotherham are in their sights, just one place and one point above.

But this really must win the game for Sheffield Wednesday as the Millers do have a game in hand over them.

In the match outright market, the win for Sheffield Wednesday is at 13/10.

Their home form has not been bad at all. In their last six league home games, the Owls are W5 L1.

Even though they are in a current slump of four straight defeats, three of those have been away from home.

Rotherham have lost their last five in a row and they have failed to score in any of their last four.

Away from home, they have lost their last two games, but those were 1-0 defeats against strong opposition in Norwich and Bournemouth.

This just looks like being tight all the way and Rotherham are 11/5 underdogs to sneak a win.

We don’t expect the goals to fly around at Hillsborough. But we expected Sheffield Wednesday to just nab the three points given their home form.

Sheffield Wednesday to win at 13/10
