Another busy weekend of Premier League action kicks off in North London Friday night, so that’s where we are starting today’s football betting tips.

It is Arsenal v Everton that is the big game of the night around Europe. That is also the only game from the top four tiers in the domestic game.

It’s a strange night across Europe too, as there is usually action on the night from each of the other top European leagues.

But only the Bundesliga and the French Ligue 1 are in play in that regard.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Arsenal v Everton

These two are both limping towards the end of the Premier League season in terms of form.

Neither look likely to reach the top six.

Arsenal have been very inconsistent recently, posting a W3 D3 L2 record in their last eight league games.

It has been a poor W6 D4 L6 home record from them this season in the top flight.

In their last home fixture, they were held to a draw by the relegation-threatened Fulham.

But Arsenal are 10/11 odds-on favourites to win this game in Premier League betting.

It’s a four-match winning streak at home that they have going over the Toffees.

The Gunners will be looking to redress the balance after losing 2-1 at Everton earlier this season.

One thing that will give them hope is that they have won 4 of 7 home games against teams in the top half of the table (D1 L3).

With two wins in their last six league home games and no clean sheet there in five, they look a little risky.

Everton are without a win in five, drawing their last three on the spin.

They have produced a decent away record of W9 D3 L3 this season in the top flight.

A 0-0 draw at Brighton in their last road game, maybe was made to look a decent point with Brighton drawing at Chelsea on Tuesday night.

Looking at the away form of Everton this season, they have won six of eight road games played against teams currently 13th or higher in the table (D1 L1).

There’s no reason why the visitors can’t spring a surprise.

Everton to win at 3/1

Football Betting Picks Today: Reims v Marseille

We are off to the French top-flight next for football betting tips today to look at Reims v Marseille.

Reims are mid-table in the division and they are on a nine-match unbeaten streak of form.

That’s strong, but 7 of those 9 games have ended in a draw.

It’s been a remarkable run of six straight home draws in league action by Reims.

But then again, they boast an impressive run of 11 games at home undefeated, part of an overall W4 D8 L4 home record this season.

Goals have been hard to come by from them, as they have averaged 0.9 goals per home game.

Reims are 13/5 to pick up the home win in this one.

Marseille lost at Reims last season, but they are the 11/10 favourites to score three points on Friday.

There is a big incentive for them too as they are duelling with Lens for a top-five finish.

Marseille have won four of their last six league games (D1 L1) so aren’t in bad shape at all.

But those wins were all home soil.

There has not been a tremendous amount of form from them on the road recently.

Marseille are winless in 10 away games now, with no clean sheet in their last four.

Draw at 23/10

Football Betting Tips for Today: Augsburg v Cologne

Augsburg are 15/8 on home soil to get the victory on the board on Friday night.

They are undefeated in their last four home games against Cologne, so that’s a positive start.

Augsburg are safe in the middle of the table but they have won only one of their last five league games (D1 L4).

It has been a W5 D4 L6 home record that they have earned this season.

They are undefeated in their last four at home as well, winning two of those.

So they are well worth looking at in today’s football betting tips to get the win.

They are facing second-from-bottom Cologne after all, a team that Augsburg beat 1-0 earlier this season away from home.

Bet at Boylesports

Cologne are in the relegation zone but still have a fighting chance. They are in the drop zone on goal difference only, three points away from absolute safety.

There was a shock win for them last weekend as they collected three points against second-placed RB Leipzig out of the blue.

That snapped a three-match losing track and it remains their only win in their last ten league fixtures (D2 L7).

Cologne have lost their last five away from home, failing to score in three of those.

At 6/4 in Bundesliga betting odds, they have a lot more at stake than Augsburg certainly.

But seeing them suddenly win back to back games is a stretch.

Augsburg to win at 15/8
