Today’s best football betting tips UK – Thursday, 17th September 202016th September 2020 / lee
Today’s football betting tips will be focusing on the EFL CUP and the Europa League qualifiers for Thursday.
There are three remaining fixtures left in the EFL Cup so we will be taking a look at each of those in our football betting for today.
We will also be sizing up Motherwell and Aberdeen’s chances in the UEFA Europa League.
Best Football Betting Tips Today: Burnley v Sheffield United
This is an all-Premier League clash in the EFL Cup. Both sides lost their opening Premier League fixtures last weekend.
Burnley went down at home against Brighton but the Clarets are the 13/8 odds-against favourites with Betvictor for this game.
It is, after all, a midweek home tie for which neither is likely to be at full strength, so siding with the home team may be the way to swing.
The Clarets are W2 D1 in their last three home games against the Blades.
Stretching back to the end of last season Sheffield United are on a four-match losing streak and were beaten 2-0 by Wolves at Bramall Lane in their Premier League opener.
Sheffield United have won only one of their last seven games against Burnley in all competitions.
Football Betting Picks Today: Wolves v Stoke
This is a home match for Wolves in the EFL Cup, who are the 8/13 odds-on favourites with Betvictor to beat Stoke.
Wolves produced a great performance last weekend to open their Premier League account with a 2-0 win away at Sheffield United.
This will be the first meeting between Wolves and Stoke since an FA Cup meeting in January 2017, which Wolves won 2-0.
Stoke played out a 0-0 draw with Millwall on the weekend in their Championship opener.
That was after having had a battle against Blackpool in the last round of the EFL Cup. The Potters were held to a 0-0 draw at home in that one.
They got through on a tight penalty shootout 5-4. We can’t see them taking the game at Molineux.
Football Betting Tips for Today: Brighton v Portsmouth
Premier League side Brighton make their entrance in the EFL Cup on Thursday as they take on League One side Portsmouth.
Brighton suffered a 3-1 loss at home against Chelsea on the opening weekend of the new Premier League season.
They have remained unbeaten in their last four home fixtures against Portsmouth but this will be the first such match since 2012.
Pompey were up against Stevenage on the road and played out a 3-3 draw there over the 90 minutes.
On the weekend they played out a 0-0 draw in their League One opener against Shrewsbury on the weekend.
Best Betting Sites Football Tip: Viking FK v Aberdeen
Next for our football betting tips today is this Europa League qualification action between Viking FK and Aberdeen.
The Dons have a tricky away game here and they are the 19/10 underdogs in the match outright for this qualifier.
It has been a good start to the new season for Aberdeen who have won their last five games, including a 6-0 win over NSI Runavik in the last qualifying round of the competition.
The Dons have only conceded once in their last five games in total.
Norwegian side FK Viking are deep into their current season and they are showing a bit of form lately, winning three top-flight games in a row.
They are the 5/4 favourites for the game, which should be an interesting one between two in-form teams.
Home favouritism swings it though and Viking have scored 10 goals in their last three games.
Best Football Betting Tips Today: COleraine v Motherwell
Northern Ireland side Coleraine are the 15/4 underdogs for this Europa League qualifier.
They started back in the first qualifying round with a 1-0 win over La Fiorita after extra time.
Then it was a penalty shoot out success for them away at Maribor in the last round.
Motherwell beat Glentoran 5-1 in the last round of the Europa League and will be expected to get the job done away from home on Thursday.
The Well are 8/13 odds-on to get the away win but we’d have to go with the HT/FT option for longer value.
