Friday's best football tips from the Championship, Bundesliga and La Liga

Today’s football betting tips for Friday are getting a lot busier and exciting now with the big leagues of Europe all back underway.

There is one Championship match in play between Bristol City and Swansea that we feature for this preview.

The other picks for today’s football betting come from Spain and Germany.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Bristol City v Swansea

Football betting tips today starts in the Championship where Bristol City will be looking to defend home turf.

They snapped a long winless streak in the division with a win over Reading in midweek.

The Robins had been underdogs for that trip to the Madejski.

That win leaves them on a W1 D1 L1 for this season. In their one home fixture, they earned a draw against the newly-promoted Blackpool.

Bristol City do, once again, find themselves in the position of being underdogs.

Swansea haven’t made the kind of start to the new season that was expected of them.

The Welsh club have returned only one point from their three games.

The losses in this campaign happened against Blackburn and then in midweek against Stoke.

So there are some clear vulnerabilities for them.

Considering that Swansea have missed out on a win in their last two games which were both at home, this suddenly becomes a tricky road match.

The Robins have lost only one of their last six Championship games against Swansea (W3 D1).

With them hitting their stride in midweek in front of goal, the home win may be worth a flutter

Bristol City to win at 13/8

Football Betting Picks Today: RB Leipzig v Stuttgart

We move over to Germany next for football betting for today.

This match starts the second round of action in the Bundesliga and it should be a good one.

Leipzig suffered a 1-0 loss at Mainz last weekend in an upset.

They could have their hands full on Friday as well against Stuttgart.

But the head to head form paints a positive for the home side.

Leipzig have won their last four games on the spin against Stuttgart. Three of those were by a two-goal margin.

It’s a six-match unbeaten run of form that Leipzig are on against Stuttgart.

Stuttgart came flying out of the gates last weekend.

They produced a 5-1 home win over Greuther Furth.

It was only a mid-table finish for Stuttgart last season in the Bundesliga and this naturally is a much tougher assignment.

We are simply leaning towards the trend of recent comfortable wins for Leipzig in this fixture.

Leipzig -1.5 Asian Handicap at 6/5

Football for Today: Real Betis v Cadiz

Today’s football betting tips round off the day’s picks with a visit to the Spanish top flight.

Real Betis are clear favourites for this one.

There was a point earned by them last weekend in a draw with Mallorca.

Betis were a top-six side last season, producing a very good home campaign.

Real Betis were W10 D5 L4 at home last season.

Home and away they are undefeated in their last 12 league matches following that draw with Mallorca last week (W4 D8).

Cadiz also took a point on the weekend. They fought back at home against Levante to take a share of the spoils.

The record away from home last season for Cadiz was W6 D6 L7.

Breaking that down a little further, their big away struggles happened against teams in the top half of the table.

Six of their seven away losses last season were against teams who finished in the top eight.

That included a 1-0 loss at Real Betis.

We don’t expect this to be a big, wide-open affair. But the home win certainly takes preference.

Betis to win by a 1 goal margin 11/4
