It is three fixtures from the domestic scene in England that we are looking at for today’s football betting tips.

Taking top billing is the clash at Craven Cottage between Fulham and Wolves.

The other selections for today’s football betting come from the Championship and League Two.

Let’s kick things off with a look at the top-flight action.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: .Fulham v Wolves

Fulham are 6/4 for a home win on Friday night and it would be a much-needed win for them as well.

They are still fighting for survival in the Premier League and have slumped to a three-match losing streak.

It has been four defeats in their last five (W1). A win would see Fulham move out of the drop zone, however.

That will put them level on points with Necastle, but having played two matches more than the Magpies.

At Craven Cottage recently, Fulham have lost their last three, most recently against Leeds on March 19th.

That leaves Fulham with only a W2 D4 L10 home record this season.

Last weekend they took the lead at Aston Villa but collapsed to concede three goals in the final 12 minutes.

Wolves took a 1-0 win over Fulham earlier this season and are 21/10 to double up for the season against the Cottagers.

They haven’t had a taste of victory in any of their last five league games.

Wolves have suffered one defeat only in their last four away games, however (W1 D2).

That lone defeat in the sequence was against Man City.

It is a W4 D4 L7 record that Wolves have away from home in this campaign.

They have won only one of their four away games played against teams currently beneath them in the table.

Draw at 2/1

Football Betting Picks Today: Watford v Reading

We are going to the Championship next for football betting tips today to look at Watford v Reading.

The Hornets are in a strong second place in the Championship table, still eight points behind leaders Norwich.

Watford had a six-match winning streak of league form snapped last weekend as they were held by Middlesbrough.

At Vicarage Road Watford have posted a tremendous W16 D2 L2 record this season.

They have won their last six on the bounce there, scoring at least two goals in four of those six wins.

It’s been just a phenomenal home record from them and they are a quote of 5/6 to add another win to the board on Friday.

The last time they hosted Reading, Watford ran out 4-1 winners.

Reading have not put too much form together recently, posting a W1 D3 L1 record in their last five.

The Royals have managed two points from their last three away games, drawing at Barnsley in their last one.

It’s not been a bad overall away record by Reading at W7 D8 L5.

But they are 15/4 underdogs because no one wants a trip to Vicarage Road right now.

Watford to win at 5/6

Football Betting Tips for Today: Mansfield v Newport

The last stop for today’s football betting tips is Mansfield v Newport from League Two on Friday.

The Stags are down in the bottom half of the table, but safe enough above the drop zone.

They have taken a D5 L2 record in their last seven fixtures, a long winless streak.

They have taken only the four home wins this season as well.

So there’s not a great deal of confidence around in them at the 11/8 quote for the victory.

Mansfield do, however, have a good home record going against Newport, winning three of the last four such fixtures (D1).

Newport are in the play off places but have just been hanging on a little bit.

The Exiles took a win over Bolton last weekend on home turf.

They needed that boost as well having lost their previous three.

It has been slightly shaky away form from Newport, losing their last two on the road.

They did claim a win over Mansfield earlier this season. We think that they have enough to take the victory.

The Exiles have won three of their four away games against teams currently 20th or lower and Mansfield are 19th.

Newport to win at 23/10
