Best 3 football bets today – August 2nd 20201st August 2020 / lee
Football betting tips today take in some of the domestic action from the UK and Ireland.
This weekend has signalled the start of the new Scottish top-flight campaign and we will be dipping into that.
Also there is some play off action from England’s National League while the Irish Premier League is back underway as well.
So we are going to pull out our top football betting picks today. It’s conservative picks that we are looking at for the day’s action.
Best Football Betting Tips Today: Celtic v Hamilton
Will Celtic get another title defence off to a cracking start by picking up three points?
They are massive odds-on favourites at Bet365 to do just that.
When last season was prematurely ended, Celtic already had a 13 point lead going at the top of the table over Rangers.
The numbers stack up for them earning a win.
Celtic have won all but two of their last 22 Premiership games and they are currently on a 12 match winning streak against Hamilton as well.
So the home win is the obvious pick and it’s worth having a look at Celtic strolling to victory.
They have scored at least three goals in 8 of their last 10 league games and have netted at least two in 9 of their last 11 against Hamilton.
Hamilton were second from bottom in the top flight when things were stopped last season, but were on an upwards swing having climate back to back wins.
Still, this should be a routine home win for Celtic.
Football Betting Picks Today: Harrogate Town vs Notts County
It is off the National League play offs next for football betting tips today. This one is for all the beans, a place up in League Two next season.
Both Harrogate Town and Notts County entered the play off situation for this re-shuffled season in the semi finals.
They both claimed clean-sheet victories there as well to keep their promotion hopes alive.
This all seems about right as Harrogate were second in the table when the season ended early, with Notts county right behind them.
The two clubs were both bang in form as well, so this is going to be a very interesting tussle now on Sunday.
Notts County are the narrow 23/20 favourite with William Hill.
There was only the one match played between the two clubs this season and that ended in a 2-0 away win for Notts County.
There really is not much more to go on than that. They both will be better for having had a competitive run out in the semi final.
Given the pressure situation that this is, it may just be worth leaning towards a low scoring game.
Football Betting Tips for Today: Cork vs Bohemians
Cork and Bohemians will continue their respective campaigns in the Irish Premier League.
Cork need to start finding some improvement after having gone W1 L4 in their opening five games.
They have conceded at over two goals per game on average as well and their lone success happened by a 1-0 scoreline over Finn Harps.
In contrast, Bohemians had a steady start to their campaign, posting a W3 L2 record.
Interestingly in that record each of their three wins were by a 2-0 scoreline and that is an 11/2 correct score option at Betvictor.
But that having been said, they are unbeaten in their last three home games against Bohemians (W2 D1).
Another trend from the recent head to head between the two is that both teams have scored in just one of the last six meetings.
