Football Betting Tips

In this section you'll find our free football betting tips which cover a selection of the best matches from today, tomorrow and this weekend. The predictions made by our tipsters focus on value and can easily be combined into accumulators. The predictions & tips mainly focus on domestic games with a heavy slant towards the Premier League and Championship, plus major international fixtures.

UPDATE: Football Postponments & Cancellations

Football Match Cancellations

Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, all major football leagues in Europe have been postponed. The Premier League and EFL have both been called off until early April at the earliest, while several other top leagues have been postponed until further notice.

English Leagues

With nine rounds of fixtures left to play, the Premier League has had to step aside for the ongoing virus. The initial return date is April 4th, but many believe the postponement will be extended. Similar applies to the Championship, League One, League Two and the National League, with the 3rd April their earliest return date. Football chiefs in England are due to meet on Thursday 19th March to discuss plans for the remainder of the season at which point we might have a clearer idea.

Other Leagues

Italy, who have been hit hard by the virus, are hoping to return to some kind of action in May, although nothing has been confirmed yet. The Bundesliga, La Liga and Ligue 1 are all suspended. La Liga said there would be no football for at least two rounds but that again seems very likely to be extended.

In general most leagues, including in Scotland and the Champions and Europa Leagues, are suspended “until further notice”. Whilst some have talked about not playing until at least the start of April the reality is that we are unlikely to see any major football played, even behind closed doors, until much later.

There is the odd exception to that, with some matches in Australia, Nigeria, Belarus and one or two other nations still set to go ahead. Some of those will be played without spectators so all in all it really is very slim pickings for football fans over the coming weeks and months.

Euro 2020 Delayed to 2021

In addition to all that, UEFA Euro 2020 has been postponed until 2021 in the hope that this will allow the European leagues to finish their domestic seasons over the now-free summer. The semi-finals of the play-offs (to decide the final four teams at the Euros), which were due to take place in March, have also been postponed, with those now pencilled in for June and the four finals to follow at some stage after that.

Other International Matches & Cups

The 2020 Copa America has also been delayed for 12 months and various international friendly games that were scheduled to take place have been cancelled. That includes the likes of England v Italy (March 27) and England v Romania, which wasn’t due to be played until the 7th June.

Football Bets

Our tips and predictions mainly focus on a few core bets. Chances are you're already familiar with these, but here's a quick run down just in case:

  • Win/Draw/Win - The simplest bet you can make... who will win the match?
  • HT/FT - The odds for the WDW markets are often quite low, especially when one team is heavily favoured. The halft-time/full-time market offers an opportunity to boost the odds by selecitng the result for both half time and the final whistle.
  • Handicap Betting - Another way to increase the odds on the match result is to add a handicap. For example, Arsenal -2 means that they effectively start the match at -2, meaning they need two goals more than the other team to draw and three more to win. 
  • Both Teams to Score - Originating in the Goals Galore market from Betfred, both teams to score has become incredibly popular. They frequently show up in accumulators and with odds usually below evens it's easy to see why. Other variations you may see in our tips are both teams not to score (BTTS No - where one or both teams won't score) and BTTS + Win, where the winner of the match is picked alongside the BTTS bet.
  • Over/Under - Another bet that's along the same lines as BTTS are over/under bets. Except here you're predicting whether the totaly number of goals will be above or below a target figure. The most comon example is 2.5 goals, although you can place these bets on a wide range of numbers. You can even bet on over 0.5 goals if you think it's going to be anything other than a 0-0 draw.
  • Correct Score - To really boost the odds, head to the correct score market. It's a hard bet to predict but it sometimes has value.
  • Goalscorer - You wont see these bets too frequently in our tips, but they do crop up from time to time if the value offered is good. Here we're picking who will score, either first, last or at any point in the match. For matches with a heavy favourite and a strong striker you may even see something along the lines of "Ronaldo to score two or more goals".
