For today’s football betting tips there is no Premier League action, so the pick of the day is going to be from the Championship where Preston host Bristol City.

We will also be taking in some League One action before heading a little further afield to make some selections from La Liga and the Bundesliga.

So let’s dig straight into football betting for today with that game at Preston.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Preston v Bristol City

Preston will be looking to arrest a slump in form on Friday night as they have lost their last two games in the Championship.

Those were both out on the road and their recent home form hasn’t been all that bad.

At least that is something to give them hope at getting three points.

Preston are W2 D1 L1 in their last four home league games and overall they are W2 D1 L6 there.

One of those victories happened against current bottom side Sheffield Wednesday the other against top-seven side Middlesbrough.

The overall picture for Preston though is a lack of goalscoring threat.

They have tallied 7 goals in 9 home games and are the 23/20 for the win with Betvictor.

Bristol City haven’t been in the greatest form recently, having lost four of their last six and they are at 5/2 for three points.

But on their travels, they have taken a W5 D1 L3 on the road this season, which has been a good return.

The Robins, however, have dropped two of their last three road games.

But two of the three losses that they have suffered away from home have been against current top-five sides.

The last two meetings at Deepdale have ended in a draw. That may be a decent option to roll with.

Draw at 12/5

Football Betting Picks Today: Hull v Portsmouth

The next game in football betting today is the League One action of Hull v Portsmouth.

This is a big top-two clash in League One.

There is an extra bit of pressure on Hull here as they have taken only one point from their last three games.

They are at 29/20 to pick up the home win here which would move them five points clear of Pompey at the top of the league.

The home form that the Tigers have put on the table in this campaign reads W5 L2.

They dropped their last home fixture against Shrewsbury 0-1.

That was only the fourth goal that Hull have conceded in this campaign.

So will the visiting Portsmouth have enough to topple them? Pompey are in good form.

They have taken a W2 D1 record in their last three and have lost only one of their last eight fixtures.

Pompey have produced some great away form as well with a W5 D2 L1 record on the road.

Impressively they have won all three road games played against current top-nine opposition and each of those wins were by a 2-goal margin.

Portsmouth to win at 9/5

Football Betting Tips for Today: Union Berlin v Borussia Dortmund

Next for today’s football betting tips, we are looking at the Bundesliga where Borussia Dortmund who are under the guidance of assistant coach Edin Terzic following the sacking of Lucien Favre.

Favre got the push after a 5-1 hammering against the newly promoted Stuttgart last weekend.

Under Terzic, Dortmund got back on track in midweek as they collected a midweek victory away at Werder Bremen.

Dortmund are currently fourth in the Bundesliga and hold a W4 D1 L1 record on their league travels.

It has been an average of 1.8 goals per away game by Dortmund but all four wins have been against teams currently in the bottom seven.

Regardless of that, Borussia Dortmund are the 4/5 favourites with Betvictor.

Union Berlin are no pushover however as they are up in the top six in the table as well.

They have failed to take a win in any of their last four games, however (D3 L1).

It has been only one league defeat in their last eleven league games now and they are undefeated in their last five on home turf (W2 D3).

In last season’s league meeting Union Berlin took a 3-1 home win over Dortmund but are 3/1 to get a home win on Friday.

They have already held Bayern Munich to a home draw.

Draw at 3/1

Online Betting Football Tip:Athletic Bilbao v Huesca

La Liga is the final stop for football betting today as we look at Athletic Bilbao v Huesca.

Neither team has been in the greatest of form lately. Athletic Bilbao are 21/20 on home soil for the win on Friday.

It has been just the two points that they have collected in their last four games.

Troublingly they have conceded at least two goals in their last three league fixtures.

The home form that they have picked up is W3 L2 this season.

It has been just the four goals that they have conceded in those five fixtures for the season earning a clean sheet in 40% of those games.

The only previous time that these two have met in the league was in the 2018/19 season with a 2-2 draw being played out.

Three of the four previous meetings in all competitions have made it over 2.5 goals.

Huesca are second from bottom in La Liga. They got their first win of the season in their last game, a 1-0 home success over Alaves.

It has only been a D5 L2 record that they have taken out on the road last season and they are 3/1 underdogs to pick up the win.

They have hit the back of the net in each of their last four road games but we think they come up short.

Athletic Bilbao to win at 21/20
