We start diving into the domestic action from England on the weekend, so it’s good Friday night stuff for today’s football betting tips.

There is a fixture from the Championship and from League One that are in the spotlight for the day.

Along with that for football betting today, we pull in a further selection from mainland Europe.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: West Brom v Birmingham

Football betting tips today start at the Hawthorns as West Brom look to hold off Midlands arrivals Birmingham.

The Baggies are undefeated in their last four home games against the Blues, winning two of those.

West Brom suffered their first loss of this campaign in their final match before the recent international break.

That was an away defeat at Stoke.

It has been a W3 D2 L0 record that they have earned on home turf, with Albion averaging two goals per home game.

The break couldn’t have come quickly enough for Birmingham who have seen their form in the league tank badly.

They had a decent start to the new season, but have earned only one point in their last five league fixtures.

The goals have totally dried up for the Blues.

Birmingham have not scored in any of their last four and just once in total across their last five league games.

With back to back away defeats, they are vulnerable at the Hawthorns on Friday.

West Brom to win to nil at 11/10

Football Betting Picks Today: Burton v Morecambe

Football betting for today slips down a division to look at this League One fixture between Burton and Morecambe.

This is a mid-table clash with Burton having taken two points more than Morecambe, but from having played a game more.

The Brewers have earned only one win in their last six league games (D2 L3).

So they are having their struggles at the moment.

Burton have managed to return a decent enough W3 D2 L1 home record and beat Portsmouth in their last home fixture.

Portsmouth are currently one place above Friday night’s opponents Morecambe in the table.

The visiting Shrimpers have not managed to get much going away from home this season.

Their away record is W1 D1 L3.

They got their first road win in their most recent away game, which was a 3-1 score at Crewe.

Morecambe have done well in front of goal this season, as they are averaging 1.8 goals per game.

However, they have conceded at an average of two goals per away game.

That may be where their challenge just falls down in a tight match.

Burton to win at 10/11

Football Betting Tips for Today: Hoffenheim v Cologne

It’s off to the German Bundesliga for the final pick of Today’s football betting tips.

If we look at the home form of Hoffenheim against Cologne, then this should be a straightforward outcome.

Hoffenheim have won their last four home fixtures against this openent scoring at least three goals in each.

Home and away they are unbeaten in 10 Bundesliga matches against FK Koln.

The current overall form of Hoffenheim in the league, however, isn’t spectacular.

They have taken one victory in their last six league fixtures.

The one positive out of that is that the one win did happen on home turf when they beat top-five side Wolfsburg in late September.

Bet at 888sport

Cologne are up in sixth place in the table at the moment. But their successes have been built on home form.

It has been a W0 D2 L1 away record that they have put on the board.

Looking a little closer into things, all three wins that Cologne have recorded this season have been against teams in the bottom five.

There has not been a clean sheet all season by Cologne either.

They are undefeated in five league matches, so probably won’t go down without a fight.

Hoffenheim to win at 19/20
