Today’s football betting tips for Friday come from the World Cup 2022 Qualifiers, but not from the UEFA zone which takes a night off.

For today’s football betting we turn attention to Africa where there is a round of matches happening.

We dive into three of the more even-looking contests for our football tips.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Zimbabwe v South Africa

Football betting tips today start with what will be expected to end up being a win for South Africa.

This is the first action of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, so there’s no recent form in that regard to look at.

South Africa have won three of their last four matches played against Zimbabwe, so the head to head form is with them.

It has been a W7 D2 record from South Africa in their last nine matches.

That includes their title in the COSAFA Cup in July.

They haven’t conceded in any of their last six matches, so we think that they will get the win.

Zimbabwe simply can’t match that kind of form.

They have won only one match played since October last year and didn’t win any group stage match at the recent COSAFA Cup (W2 D2).

South Africa to win at 13/10

Football Betting Picks Today: Mauritania v Zambia

Mauritania have won three of their last four matches (L1) but they have a tricky home opener in the World Cup 2022 Qualifiers.

Football betting for today looks at their game against Zambia on Friday.

Mauritania’s latest action was a 2-0 success over Yemen in June’s Arab Cup.

More relevant perhaps is their W1 D2 L1 record from their last four Africa Cup Of Nations qualifiers.

The latest of those was in March.

Zambia were in great form with a run of friendly successes in October last year.

But they went to the COSAFA Cup in July and lost some momentum with a W1 D1 L2 record from their four matches played.

So it wasn’t the most convincing of stuff from them.

Neither was their W2 D1 L3 record in the 2021 Africa Cup Of Nations qualifiers.

It meant that they missed out on a spot at the tournament.

There’s not likely to be much to split these two, but Zambia look slightly the bigger threat.

Zambia to win at 7/4

Football Tips for Today: Cameroon v Malawi

Today’s football betting tips round off with a strong home pick of Cameroon in the qualifiers.

They should have the beating of Malawi and won’t want to slip up.

That’s because they do have to compete against Ivory Coast in Group D.

Cameron took the top spot in their 2021 Africa Cup Of Nations qualifier group but ended the campaign disappointingly.

They lost against Cape Verde before playing out a home draw with Rwanda.

The previous time that they met Malawi was in the 2018 African Nations Cup qualifiers and earned a W1 D1 record against this opponent.

Cameroon took a clean sheet in both meetings.

Despite a lapse at the end of those AFCON qualifiers, there has been enough in their form since October to suggest that they can win this.

Malawi have failed to win any of their last five games (D2 L3).

They were involved in the recent COSAFA Cup in which they played out a D2 L2 record.

They conceded two goals in three of those four matches.

There were somewhat credible draws against Zimbabwe and Namibia in that run.

The more relevant form from Malawi was their W3 D1 L2 record in the AFCON 2021 qualifiers, finishing second in their group to Burkina Faso.

We expect Cameroon to win this, but it doesn’t look all that cut in dry in terms of them strolling to a win.

Cameron to win to nil at 11/10
