Today’s football tips take a good look over the top action that is coming up on Friday from the domestic front.

There is a game scheduled from each of the top four tiers and so we will be looking at each of those.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Everton v Tottenham

At this point of the season, neither of these look to have enough left to muscle their way into the Champions League spots.

Everton are winless in four league games, now, drawing their last two.

The Toffees are a quote of 23/10 for the home win in Premier League betting for Friday.

Everton have taken only one victory in their last eight league fixtures at Goodison Park, losing five of those.

So they are not looking all that reliable at the moment.

The last time that they scored more than one goal in a game was in this historic win at Liverpool back on February 20th.

Tottenham are completely hit and miss and lost a lead at home against Manchester United last weekend to end up 3-1 losers.

Jose Mourinho’s men have won only one of their last four games (D1 L2).

There is a quote of 23/20 on them getting a victory at Goodison Park on Friday.

Their away record recently has been a mixed bag, with a W2 D1 L2 record from that sequence.

Spurs haven’t performed well away from home against teams in the top half of the table.

Tottenham are W1 D1 L4 in away games against teams currently in the top ten.

We sense a stalemate coming up.

Draw at 5/2

Football Betting Picks Today: Blackburn v Derby

It is Championship action next for football betting for today. There is more pressure on the visitors if anything.

Blackburn are down in 17th place in the table and without a win in a long time.

The last victory that Rovers claimed was against Millwall on March 6th.

That’s a run of seven without one since (D4 L3).

At Ewood Park, they have earned a W6 D7 L7 record this season, but have claimed just two points from their last four there.

Another issue for them has been a lack of goals. Blackburn have failed to score in four of their last six Championship fixtures.

Derby are right above the drop zone, with a four-point cushion.

But Rotherham, who are third from the bottom, do have two games in hand over them.

So there’s pressure on Derby who have lost four of their last six, including their last two.

The away form of the Rams makes for some pretty shoddy reading, having taken one item from their last six away from Pride Park.

They failed to score in four of those.

Blackburn to win at 11/10

Football Betting Tips for Today: Peterborough v Northampton

It is League One action next as we move through the tiers for football betting tips today.

Peterborough are in good form at the moment with three wins in their last four (D1).

They are the 9/20 odds-on favourites to claim the home success on Friday.

The Posh have won three of their last four at home against Northampton, so the stats back them up.

Peterborough are second in the table and look well on course now for automatic promotion to the Championship.

It has been a powerful home record of W14 D3 L2 from them in this campaign.

They will be seeking their third straight home win.

Earlier this season they claimed a comfortable 2-0 away win at Northampton and we expect them to complete the double.

Bet at Bet365

Northampton have lost four of their last eight league games (W2 D2).

Their road record doesn’t give them too much hope.

It is just W3 D5 L12.

So far this season they have lost all six away games played at current top-eight sides in the division.

They roll back into action as massive 7/1 underdogs on the night.

Northampton have been really goal-shy on the road, averaging just 0.85 goals per road game.

They have failed to hit the back of the net in exactly half of their away games.

Peterborough to win to nil at 11/10

Online Betting Football Tip: Crawley v Cheltenham

We will round off the best football tips for today with the league two clash of Crawley v Cheltenham.

We expect Chltenham to pick up the points in this one.

The Robins are in pole position at the top of League Two, and comfortably heading towards automatic promotion.

Cheltenham have had a very good season on the road, but they’ve just been struggling a little with their away form.

They have gone W1 D1 L2 in their last four on the road.

But looking at the overall bigger picture, the Robins are W10 D5 L5 away from home this season and are a quote of 19/20 for the win in League Two football betting.

Crawley claimed a win last weekend over Bradford.

That is their only success in their last eight league games, losing half of those.

Crawley have failed to hit the back of the net in three of their last five league games and have gone winless in three at home, losing their last two.

We can’t see the home team standing up defensively to the league leaders.

Cheltenham to win at 19/20
