Best 3 football bets today – July 30th 202030th July 2020 / lee
Football betting picks today kicks things off with a look at the Championship play off semi final between Fulham and Cardiff.
The winner of that will be meeting Brentford in the final to see who gets a place in the Premier League next season.
To round out the football betting tips today we will focus on some action from Norway as we look around for some valuable picks.
Best Football Betting Tips Today: Fulham vs Cardiff
Fulham have one foot in the door of the Championship play off final. That is because they secured a 2-0 win at Cardiff in the first leg of this semi final.
So that’s a huge advantage and with the Cottagers having produced a fine record on home turf during the regular season, it’s likely that they will push on and collect the win.
Fulham produced a W15 D2 L6 home record in the campaign and they closed out the season on a three match winning streak at Craven Cottage.
They won all but two of their final nine home games during the campaign (L2).
Fulham averaged 1.74 goals per home game and across the course of the season they collected a fine tally of clean sheets in 43% of games.
Fulham are 21/20 at Betvictor to finish the job here by beating Cardiff for a second time.
Cardiff lost 2-0 on their travels to the Craven Cottage during the regular season.
They were picked off relatively easily in the first leg of this tie, going down 3-1 and Fulham were on top of them all the way.
So they need a huge fightback here. Cardiff took a W8 D7 L8 record on their travels in the season and won four of their last five road games to boot.
In three of their last five away games, the Bluebirds scored at least two goals in those fixtures.
They need that minimum to get level but we can see the Cottagers picking them off.
Football Betting Picks Today: Stabaek v Bodo/Glimt
What does Norway have in store for today’s football betting tips?
Well we are looking at Stabaek v Bodo/Glimt, basically to see if we can see a hint of an upset.
Bodo/Glimt are the league leaders having recorded 10 wins from 10 played this season, so they are bang in form.
They have averaged almost four goals per away fixture as well which is just a phenomenal rate of scoring.
So no, we don’t see an upset happening and Stabek are 5/1 underdogs with Bet365.
So instead we have to consider how big of a win the favourites may get.
Bodo/Glimt are averaging exactly four goals per away game this season and three of their five road successes have been by at least a two goal margin.
Stabaek aren’t in bad shape actually and are W2 D2 L1 at home, the one slip up happening against second-place Molde.
But there’s the rub, that loss was a 4-1 loss and as Bodo/Glimt have outscored Model this season then we only see a heavy away win happening.
Football Betting Tips for Today: Rosenborg vs Viking FK
Next up for today’s football betting tips is Rosenborg vs Viking FK staying in the Norwegian top flight.
Rosenborg have taken a W2 D2 L1 record on home soil this season in the league, the only loss in that sequence happening against current leaders Bodo/Glimt.
So it’s not been a bad campaign from them and Rosenborg have taken back to back home wins.
It’s worth noting that they have taken three clean sheets in their last five games (home and away combined) as well.
In their two games played at home this season against teams who are currently beneath them in the league, Rosenborg have been successful.
So that should bode well for them in the contest against Viking who are 12th of 16. Rosenborg are 4/5 at WIlliam Hill to get the win.
They snapped their winless away streak with a 2-0 win at Haugesund who are currently in 10th, a couple of spots higher than Viking.
At the end of the day, Viking have averaged under a goal per away game in this campaign so far, and have conceded at an average of over two per game.
That doesn’t stack up enough for us as an away win and the home success looks slightly favourable in this one.
