The Premier League is back for today’s football betting tips as the new season of the English top-flight starts on Friday.

The curtain-raiser sees the newly promoted Brentford taking on Arsenal.

We will be diving into that fixture for today’s football betting and also taking a look at a couple of fixtures from mainland Europe.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Brentford v Arsenal

What can Brentford do in their opening game of the new Premier League season?

Can they take all three points? Hang in there for a draw maybe?

For football betting tips today we start at Griffin Park as the Bees host Arsenal.

The last time that Brentford hosted the Gunners was in 1947 in the old English Division 1.

The one meeting that they have had since then was in a 3-1 away loss at Arsenal in the 2018 EFL Cup.

Brentford reached the top flight by winning the Championship Playoff last season after finishing third in the table.

It was a W12 D9 L2 record that they earned on home turf.

For their Premier League debut, Brentford are underdogs, but they look as if they are going to take a positive approach to life in the top flight.

Arsenal ended up with an 8th place finish in the Premier League last season.

There were a lot of inconsistencies there, but they did take a W10 D3 L6 road record.

Last season Arsenal opened their campaign with an away win at the newly-promoted Fulham.

They may do the same on Friday night, but both teams scoring looks like a good approach for football betting.

Football Betting Picks Today: Borussia Monchengladbach v Bayern Munich

Football betting for today turns attention to Germany for Bayern Munich’s opener.

They haven’t won a single game during pre-season under new manager Julian Nagelsman.

Will they get their title defence in the Bundesliga off to a positive start?

Bayern are odds-on to collect the win on Friday night.

However, the head to head is fascinating because they have lost three of their last four visits to Monchengladbach.

Last season they went down 3-2 in their league encounter there.

So that does throw a very interesting spin on things.

Borussia Monchengladbach finished 8th in last season’s Bundesliga, and they were the fourth top-scorers in the division.

It’s notable that in their home matches against the top-five finishers last season, Monchengladbach posted a W4 D1 record.

The underdogs may be worth a shout.

Football for Today: Valencia v Getafe

Today’s football betting tips switch over to the big kick-off in Spain as the new La Liga season starts.

Valencia have drawn their last three home games against Getafe.

So this may be a tight scrap on Friday night.

They both finished down in the bottom half of the table last season.

Valencia finished in 13th, two places and five points ahead of Getafe.

On home turf in La Liga last season, Valencia took a W8 D7 L4 home record which was pretty reasonable.

Each of those losses were against teams who finished in the top six.

Bet at Marathonbet

Getafe only won three times away from home in La Liga last season (D5 L11).

There was a drastic lack of goals from them as well as they averaged only 0.68 goals per road game.

Overall last season in their league campaign, Getafe averaged under a goal per game.

Strangely enough, though they have scored at least two goals in each of their last four games against Valencia home and away (W2 D2).

So while it doesn’t appear to be an immediate threat, the visitors may be worth banking on to scrap out a point.

Draw at 13/5
