Some of Europe’s big leagues are starting back up this weekend, which gives us some good fixtures for today’s football betting tips.

The opening game of the new Championship season sees Bournemouth take on West Brom.

We will feature that game as well as action from the French top flight and round off with a trip to Portugal.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Bournemouth v West Brom

The Championship kicks off on Friday night and this is a good one.

Bournemouth missed out on their chance of top-flight football for this campaign, as they were beaten in the Championship playoffs by Brentford.

So it’s another season in the second tier for them and the Cherries are odds-against favourites for Fridays’ game.

A positive for Bournemouth is that they are undefeated in their last four against West Brom at the Vitality, playing out a W3 D1 record in that sequence in all competition.

West Brom took a tumble from the Premier League last season.

So they have to pick up the pieces of a long, arduous and unsuccessful season.

This is a tough opener that Albion get for starters and the Baggies, who lost their last four games of last season in the Premier League, may have a hard time here.

Their opponents Bournemouth thumped MK Dons 5-0 in midweek EFL Cup action, so with a little match sharpness, the home win for the Cherries gets the nod.

Bournemouth to win at 6/5

Football Betting Picks Today: Monaco v Nantes

Football betting for today switches over to the French top flight for a look at Monaco’s opening game.

Monaco finished third in last season’s Ligue 1, only five points back from winners Lille.

It was a fine home record that Monaco earned last season, losing only twice and those were against teams who finished in the top seven with them.

Monaco averaged over two goals per home game in the last campaign.

This looks like being a winnable fixture for them to get their new campaign going.

Last season Monaco won both games against Nantes 2-1.

Nantes get another season in the top flight after surviving a relegation playoff.

They did put on a boost of form at the end of the season, winning four of their last five.

All five of their road wins last season happened against teams who finished 13th or lower.

It’s unlikely that they are going to pick off a stronger team.

Monaco to win at 4/9

Football for Today: Sporting v Vizela

Today’s football betting tips next look at reigning Portuguese champions Sporting.

They went undefined in last season’s successful league campaign, posting a W13 D4 record.

It was an average of two goals per home game from Sporting last season, while they shipped only 10 goals in their 17 home games.

They are running as the current odds-on favourites to pick up three points from this game.

They are, after all, taking on a newly promoted side.

Vizela will begin their first-ever season in the Portuguese top flight on Friday night.

So this is a huge night for the club, but naturally, they are 11/1 underdogs for the win against the champions.

They were runners up in the second tier last season to get this chance in the top flight.

From their ninth game of the season, Vizela went undefeated last season in the league.

This is obviously going to be a much tougher season ahead for them.

Sporting to win at 10/11
