Friday is a really quiet night for action, so we have three selections for football betting tips today.

This is that little down spot between the opening fixtures of the 2021 World Cup qualifier in midweek and on the weekend.

So we have three tips for football betting today and the highlight of those is going to be Oxford v Lincoln from League One.

For the other two, we are going to visit continental Europe to look at matches from the Spanish second tier.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Oxford v Lincoln

Football betting tips today starts with the game from League One on Friday evening.

The home victory for Oxford in this fixture is trading at a quote of 23/20

They have lost three of their last four games played now, including their last home game which was against Blackpool.

That has left the U’s with a W8 D4 L5 record on home turf in League One.

They have claimed one win in their last five home league games.

Earlier this season when they went on the road to face Lincoln, Oxford lost 2-0. that was on the opening day of the new campaign.

So far at home this season Oxford have won only one of eight fixtures against teams currently in the top ten.

Lincoln are in fourth place in their promotion push but they have been struggling for recent form.

The Imps have won only one of their last eight league games (D3 L4).

They have, however, posted a very good W10 D5 L2 away record this season.

It has been extremely good for them on the road and Lincoln have conceded on average, less than a goal per away game.

That could help them secure the points.

Lincoln to win at 12/5

Football Betting Picks Today: Gijon v Alcorcon

Gijon are well positioned in the promotion race in the Spanish second tier which is where we are going next for football betting tips today.

They are in fifth place and they are on a good run of unbeaten league form as well.

It ha been an undefeated W4 D4 run of matches for them and it’s even better when just looking solely at their home games.

Gijon are unbeaten in all fifteen home league games this season, posting a W9 D6 L0 record there.

They roll back into action on Friday night as the 11/10 favourites for the win.

There was a 2-1 win for Gijon when they visited Alcorcon earlier this season.

So on the back of their impressive home record, in which they have conceded just 7 goals in 15 games, Gijon look a very sound football betting tip here.

Alcorcon are in the relegation zone, by goal difference only.

So there is still a lot to play for and they have taken three wins in their last six league fixtures (D1 L2).

So that hasn’t been a bad response by a team in a difficult position. However, their away record is worth looking at.

It’s not good at W2 D6 L7 this season. Alcorcon are the 3/1 underdogs for the win.

They have managed to score only seven goals on their travels in this campaign. It has not been a bad defensive output from them at all, however.

But quite where the scoring threat is going to come from to see them take the victory is a different matter.

Gijon to win at 11/10

Football Betting Tips for Today: Castellon v Espanyol

Castellon have a survival fight on their hands, but they have been making a decent fist of it lately.

It ha been a total of eight points from the last possible twelve.

They have given up only the one goal in that run of fixtures as well.

It is a quote of 9/2 on them collecting the win on Friday night, leaving them as underdogs.

Castellon will be looking for their third straight home win however o they have hit a bit of form.

Bet at Betfair

Defensively they have been pretty sound on home turf, conceding at less than a goal per game in the campaign.

Earlier this season when they met Espanyol, Castellon suffered a defeat.

Espanyol are undefeated in their last even league games.

They are understandably the 8/11 favourite to in this fixture.

Espanyol are in second place in the Spanish second tier and are unbeaten in their last four on the road (W1 D3).

Home and away they have on all nine games played against teams currently 16th or lower in the league.

They conceded in just two of those nine such fixtures.
