Today’s football betting picks are pulled in from a nice mix of competitions and on the domestic front, the focus is on the Championship.

The one fixture from the night from the English second tier is Blackburn v Preston.

For the rest of the selections for today’s football betting, we are going to mainland Europe for league fixtures.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Blackburn v Preston

So we kick off football betting tips today with a look at this Championship fixture.

Blackburn have the home soil advantage and they are 10/11 odds-on to win the match.

Rovers are six points outside of the top six as it stands, so have to win this to try and keep out the pressure on some of those above them.

Rovers are W6 D4 L3 at Ewood Park this season and are undefeated in their last four there (W2 D2).

Home and away Rovers have taken a clean sheet in three of their last five fixtures.

They look capable enough of holding their own in this one.

In this season’s earlier meeting with Preston, Blackburn took a 3-0 road win.

Preston have been struggling with their form recently, with four losses in their last six (W1 D1).

It hasn’t been a terrible away season from them, however, with a W7 D1 L6 record on the board.

But they have lost two of their last three away games and the latest of those was against relegation-threatened Sheffield Wednesday.

Preston are the 3/1 underdogs on the night. As it stands they look as if they are going to come up a little bit short.

Blackburn to win at 10/11

Football Betting Picks Today: Bologna v Benevento

Next for today’s football betting were looking at Bologna v Benevento from Serie A.

Bologna are the current 4/5 favourites in the match outright.

Bologna had a three-match unbeaten streak of home form snapped as they narrowly lost to AC Milan in their last home fixture.

That leaves them at W2 D2 L4 on home soil in Serie A this season.

A positive is that they have scored in each of their last six home games.

But all four of their home losses have been against teams currently in the top eight.

Friday’s night’s opponents Benevento are a place beneath them in the table.

There has been little in the way of form from then recently.

Benevento have taken two points from their last five league games only.

In four of those five games, they conceded at least two goals as well.

All but one of their away defeats though have been against top nine sides.

Benevento earned a 1-0 win at home against Bologna earlier this season.

They may hold out for a point in the return fixture.

Draw 13/5

Football Betting Tips for Today: Leipzig v Augsburg

This Bundesliga action next sees RB Leipzig as the strong 1/4 odds-on favourites on home soil to get the victory.

They are the nearest challengers to Bayern Munich in the title race and have won their last two league games.

The home form of Leipzig has been fantastic at W8 D1 L1 for this campaign.

They have only given up six goals in their home games.

When they went out on the road to face Augsburg earlier this season Leipzig collected a 2-0 win.

Bet at Boylesports

So the question is, are Augsburg good enough to turn the tables?

Probably not as they have lost six of their last eight Bundesliga fixtures (W2).

So it has been a bit of miserable form from them and they have recently lost against Dortmund and Bayern Munich.

Those are two of the current top six along with Leipzig.

Augsburg have only averaged a goal per away game this season and may not pack enough punch to go and breakthrough a superb Leipzig defence

RB Leipzig to win to nil at evens

Online Betting Football Tip: Celta Vigo v Elche

This is another of the night’s fixtures where the home side are the strong favourites.

Celta Vigo are 1/2 odds-on favourites to bag themselves three points out of this contest.

Interestingly they haven’t hit a win in any of their last six league games.

It has been one victory in their last eight altogether.

Other than a purple patch of form between the end of November and the end of December, they have been pretty poor.

To their credit, they battled to a great point league leaders Atletico Madrid win their last fixture.

Celta Vigo have taken a W4 D1 L1 record in their last six league home games.

That is partially where the favouritism comes from. The rest is from Elche being second from bottom in the league.

They have posted a D4 L4 record in their last eight league games.

There is a huge quote of 8/1 on Elche to win this game.

We don’t imagine that they can find three points out of this game.

But at home against Celta Vigo earlier this season they did battle to a good point.

A point may not be a far stretch for them.

Draw at 3/1
