Football betting for today takes a look at the high-pressure stakes of the Championship play off semi finals.
We will also be heading over to Serie A for a look at a couple of games from a busy night of action from the Italian top flight for today’s football betting tips.
Rounding off our picks of the day will be some action from the Norwegian top flight.
Best Football Betting Tips Today: Udinese vs Lecce
Lecce’s top flight future is hanging by a thread in this one.
Unless they come up with a win in this one then they will be heading back down to the second tier.
They start this, their penultimate game of the season four points from safety.
So there is no margin for error now, but it may all still end badly for them if Genoa matches whatever they do on the night.
So all Lecce can do is go flat out for the win and they are 9/4 at Betvictor to get that on board.
The away record of Lecce is W4 D3 L11 this season and they have not won out on the road since a 3-2 success at Napoli in early February.
That’s D1 L5 on their travels since then and the odds are certainly stacked again them.
Udinese have hit a bit of form with back to back victories, the first of those a 2-1 success over Juventus.
That left them with a W6 D6 D6 home record for this campaign.
Nothing special at all and that success over Juventus snapped a seven match winless streak of home form they had been on.
Udinese are safe from relegation so don’t have anything to play for in this one.
Because Udinese have only failed to hit the back of the net once in their last nine games, the home win has to be favoured.
Football Betting Picks Today: Brentford v Swansea
This is the second leg of the Championship play off semi final that comes into focus here for football betting tips today.
It’s a big one and it’s all to play for with Swansea holding a narrow 1-0 lead from the first leg at the Liberty Stadium.
Brentford played the last 25 minutes of the first leg with ten men.
Bretnford are now on a three match losing streak after that loss in South Wales.
It’s been a tough end of the season for them, a dive in form which saw them miss out on automatic promotion.
But their home form was superb before losing at Griffin Park on the final day of the regular season to Barnsley.
So can they turn this time around?
They are odds-on favourites at 3/5 with Bet365 to collect the win on the night. But they are going to have to score at least two goals on the night.
When Brentford hosted Swansea earlier this season in the league they collected a 3-1 success over the Swans.
The Bees did take a superb W14 D5 L4 home record across the course of the season and were on a five match winning streak at Griffin Park before that misfire against Barnsley.
Brentford averaged 1.91 goals per home game this season.
So Swansea are in the driving seat and they only need a draw on the night to get through to the play off final.
On their travels they produced a W8 D11 L4 record during the regular season, which suggests that they may not be far from getting that precious draw.
They were in good spirits and played a superb counter attacking game against Brentford in the first leg.
The Swans will know that Brentford are going to come hard at them. Can they hold out?
Football Betting Tips for Today: Cagliari v Juventus
Another league title has been earned by Juventus so the pressure is all off them now as they head into their penultimate fixture.
On the weekend they collected a comfortable 2-0 home win over Sampdoria to continue their excellent home record for the season.
All of their blips (five losses) have happened on their travels and their away form is in the gutter a bit with just one point collected from their last three.
The big question here for today’s football betting is just how interested are they likely to be in this contest now the title issues have been settled.
Juventus took a 4-0 home win over Cagliari earlier this season and are 8/13 odds-on at Betfair to complete the double over them.
Cagliari are not in the kind of form that suggests that they can take an upset win against a disinterested Juventus however.
They are only D3 L3 in their last six fixtures now and they have failed to hit the back of the net in four of their last six.
This doesn’t look as if it is going to shape up a great contest.
In their last away game Cagliari suffered a 2-1 loss at fourth-placed Lazio.
Because of the situation, a draw doesn’t look to be a bad option to roll with in this contest.
Best Betting Sites Football Tip: Molde vs Valerenga
For the last look in today’s football betting tips we will head over to Norway where the season is still young, just ten rounds in.
Molde have had a good start to the campaign having posted a W8 D1 L1 record. They did however, lost their most recent fixture.
That was a 3-1 loss out at current leaders Bodo/Glimt.
Still on home soil Molde are P4 W4 and are odds-on favourites to the tune of 4/9 with Bet365 for this one.
It is worth looking at their goal scoring output ahead of this one because Molde have averaged 3 goals per home game this season, conceding just 2 in 4.
So there is a tough task ahead for Valerenga, who are sitting in third place in the league current, one spot behind Molde.
It is a W5 D4 L1 record that Valerenga have recorded this season and the part of that out on the road is W2 D2 L1.
Problematically for them in this one is that they can’t match the scoring power of Molde. Valerenga are averaging under a goal per away game.
