The lower tiers of England come into focus for today’s football betting tips as we have a selection from League One and League Two.

Along with those two domestic football betting tips, we head over to mainland Europe for more Friday league action.

There are selections from Serie A and La Liga for today’s football betting as well.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Burton v Cheltenham

Football betting tips today start in League One with Burton looking to bounce straight back to winning ways.

They had come out of the blocks firing on all cylinders, winning their first three league games of the season.

But they were tripped up in their last game, an away defeat at Cambridge.

All three of the victories that Burton have recorded this season have been by a one-goal margin.

A quick look at the head to head shows that the Brewers have won their last three home games against Friday’s opponent Cheltenham.

The Robins earned a promotion to League One for this season.

Cheltenham have produced four points from their four games so far, finding the going a little tough at the back.

Their one success happened at home against Ipswich.

The Robins are winless in two road games (D1 L1).

Those were both fixtures against teams beneath them in the table.

Burton to win at 11/10

Football Betting Picks Today: Rochdale v Colchester

Football betting for today moves on to League Two for Friday night

Rochdale have produced a W1 D1 L2 record so far, getting their first win last weekend.

That was a 3-1 win at Northampton.

From their two home fixtures played this season Rochdale have taken one point from a 0-0 draw against Scunthorpe.

This looks like being a tight contest and a tricky one for the home side.

Colchester are W1 D2 L1 this season so haven’t been easy to knock over.

They have taken four points from their two games on the road, winning at Oldham last weekend.

Rochdale have been the better of the two in front of goal, but that’s balanced out by Colcehtser having the better defence.

The Dale have won their last home games against Colchester but may struggle to record one on Friday.

Draw at 12/5

Football Betting Tips for Today: Verona v Inter

Today’s football betting tips switch over to Italy and a strong road pick.

Inter are the reigning champions of Italy and opened their account for the new season impressively last weekend.

They banked a 4-0 win over Genoa

.Inter are odds-on favourites for this away game on Friday night.

They look a decent banker for a football acca wager.

Verona were left empty-handed from their opening game of the season, losing 2-3 at home against Sassuolo.

So those defensive issues could be a huge concern for them.

They are facing a much more powerful attack on Friday night.

In their last four games against Inter, Verona are D2 L2 and suffered defeats against Inter in both home and away fixtures last season.

Inter to win at 3/5

Online Betting Football Tip: Mallorca v Espanyol

We head to Spain next for one of two football betting tips today from La Liga.

Mallorca, who were promoted from the second tier last season, have had a steady start to the new season.

They have taken four points from their two games.

After an opening draw against Real Betis, they earned a 1-0 win at Alaves.

Extending back to last season as well, that is now an eight-match undefeated streak of league form from Mallorca.

That’s nine league matches unbeaten on home turf as well from that.

Interestingly that run started after a 1-2 home loss against Espanyol.

So this is a battle between two newly-promoted teams and both should be targeting this kind of fixture hard.

Espanyol are undefeated in their opening two matches of this season’s La Liga campaign.t

Those were both 0-0 draws against Osasuna and then Villarreal.

Just because Mallorca have done slightly better in front of goal, the home win takes precedence.

Mallorca to win at 31/20

Online Betting Football Tip: Valencia v Alaves

Valencia look to continue their undefeated start to the new season after picking up four points from their first two games.

Their win came in their home game against Getafe. They followed that up with a draw at Granada.

In their last four home games against Alaves, Valencia are W3 D1.

Valencia have lost one of their last twelve home league games only, so look like a strong selection.

Alaves have had some early struggles in the top flight.

They have lost both games played so far, the defeats happening at home against Real Madrid and the newly-promoted Mallorca.

Alaves finished down in the bottom five of last season’s league campaign.

They produced a poor W3 D5 L11 record on the road last season.

More struggles could be coming their way on the weekend.

Valencia to win at 17/20
