Heading up today’s best football betting tips for Friday is the sole Premier League clash between Aston Villa and Leeds.

Because this has been a week of Champions League and Europa League action, things are a little bit quieter on Friday.

But there is enough around Europe for us to collect four football betting tips today, as well visit the Bundesliga, La Liga and Serie A.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Aston Villa v Leeds

It has been a cracking start to the new Premier League season for Ason Villa.

They are the only team left standing with a perfect record. It has been four wins from four from the Villains.

That run included their incredible 7-2 home success over Liverpool. Impressively they didn’t take their eye off their ball in their next match.

In their first fixture back after the international break, Villa claimed a 1-0 win at Leicester.

So they are in ripe form at the moment and have taken a clean sheet in three of their four fixtures too.

Villa will have a chance to go top of the table on Friday night with at least a point.

The Villains are 13/10 favourites to pick up three points in this clash with Leeds.

Leeds will be relatively happy with their mid-table status after five games.

It has been a W2 D1 L2 record from them so far, but are winless in their last two.

Leeds had a three-match unbeaten streak snapped in a 1-0 loss against Wolves on Monday night.

So far on the road, they have lost 3-4 at Liverpool and then claimed a 1-0 win at Sheffield United.

This could be a close tussle with Leeds at 2/1 for the win at bookmaker Beway.

Leeds took four points against Villa in last season’s Championship and have lost only one of their last six games against them.

Draw at 12/5

Football Betting Picks Today: Sassuolo v Torino

Today’s football betting continues with a look at Serie A for Sassuolo v Tornino on Friday.

Sassuolo are the 8/15 favourites for this fixture on home turf. It has, after all, been a cracking start to the season for them.

They have taken a W3 D1 Lo record for the campaign and they are on a three-match winning streak.

Granted they haven’t met anyone from the top half of the table in that winning streak.

But they are in good spirits and with Torino struggling right at the foot of the Serie A table, then the home win has plenty of appeal.

Torino have yet to collect a single point from the three matches played. They have also conceded at over two goals per game on average.

But they have scored four goals in their last two.

It’s hard seeing them come up with a win, and they are also winless in their last four visits to Sasuolo as well.

This has to represent something of a banker for today’s football betting.

Sassuoloa To win & BTTS at 7/4

Football Betting Tips for Today: Stuttgar v Cologne

Stuttgart have picked up a W2 D1 L1 record from their opening foray in the Bundesliga this season.

The loss of them happened on the first weekend of action, so they are unbeaten in three.

It has been an average of over two goals per game from Stuttgart in this campaign.

A 2-0 win for them on the weekend over Hertha Berlin saw them take their first clean sheet.

Stuttgart are 21/20 in the match outright with Betway.

This will be the first meeting between the two clubs since a 2018 Bundesliga clash, won by Stuttgart away from home.

Stuttgart are on a three-match winning streak over Friday’s opponents.

Cologne have managed to collect only one point so far in this season’s top flight.

That did come in their last fixture however as they dug out a very good point at home against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Cologne have managed to at least he’s the back of the net in each of their four games played.

But this will be just their second round game, the other ended in defeat at Bielefeld. Cologne are the 23/10 outright underdogs.

Stuttgart to win at 21/20

Online Betting Football Tip: Elche v Valencia

It’s action from the Spanish top flight next for today’s football betting tips.

Home side Elche have secured a W2 D1 L1 record so far in their campaign. Goals have been a premium in their fixtures however.

With just three goal scored, they have managed to put together a W2 D1 record in their last three fixtures.

So that says a lot about their defensive output. However, putting that positive into context, those games were against teams down in the bottom six with them.

But that’s been three straight clean sheets from Elche and we have to imagine that this is going to be a low-scoring fixture.

Elche are 12/5 underdogs to win it with Betway.

Valencia are W2 D1 L3 having played six games for the campaign and they are therefore, level on points with Friday’s opponents.

Valencia have lost their last two fixtures however and have won only one of their last five.

Not since the opening weekend of the season have Valencia managed to score more than one goal in a league game.

They are turning up at Elche as the 5/4 favourites however. They have won their last three on the spin against them.

Valencia to win at 5/4

Online Betting Football Tip: Rennes v Angers

We are going to throw in a game from the French top flight for today’s football betting as well.

Rennes have drawn their last three games on the bounce, which included a Champions League effort against Krasnodar.

They are undefeated in the new campaign of Ligue 1 with a W4 D3 record on the board. They have been scoring well at over two goals per game on average as well.

So they do appear to be in a very good position at the moment and they are the 3/4 odds-on favourites with Betway to win this.

Rennes are on a three match winning streak at home against Angers.

Angers have taken a W3 D1 L3 record from the star to their French top flight campaign.

The worry for them will be the number of goals that they have shipped.

With 15 against them in their seven games,that’s the current joint-second highest tally in the division.

Angers kick off on Friday as the 10/3 underdogs.

It has only been the two away games for Angers so far this season. They have lost both of them.

But those were, to be fair, difficult games at Montpellier and PSG.

Rennes to win at 3/4
