Today’s football betting tips will start in the Championship with Coventry v Bournemouth duelling for three points.

But we will also be casting our net a little wider across Europe for some more football betting tips today.

There is action from the French, Italian and German top flights to size up. So let’s get straight down into football betting for today.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Coventry vs Bournemouth.

Following relegation from the top flight at the end of last season, Bournemouth will be fairly happy with their start in the second tier.

It is a W2 D1 record that the Cherries have produced. But the one game that they failed to win in that sequence was away from home.

In their one road game of the campaign, Bournemouth played out a 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough.

With Bournemouth having only taken the one clean sheet so far, they could be a little vulnerable on their travels.

But Bournemouth are the 11/10 favourites with Boylesports for the match win.

Coventry have produced a mixed bag of a W1 D1 L1 record. In that, they have scored four goals and conceding four.

In their one home fixture, the Sky Blues took a 3-2 win over QPR in an exciting battle. They are 11/4 to double up on Friday.

But then last weekend they were held to a goalless draw against the struggling Barnsley.

Coventry didn’t get a single shot on target in the game.

Bournemouth to win at 11/10

Football Betting Picks Today: PSG vs Angers

PSG seem to have finally gotten their title defence going in the French top flight after a stuttering start.

The reigning champions lost their opening two games against Lens and Marseille before finding their groove with a three-match winning streak.

Each of the three wins for PSG in that sequence have been with a clean sheet. So it is starting to look like business as usual for them.

Will that spell bad news for Angers who are level on points with PSG after five games of the new season having already passed?

Angers have alternated between a win and a loss in each of their five games played. So the sequence would follow for them losing this one.

The bookmakers are highly expecting that outcome as the visitors are 18/1 underdogs for Friday’s trip to the capital.

To back that up further, PSG are on a nine-match winning streak against Angers in all competitions.

The Parisians have won all but five of their last five Ligue 1 matches.

With the clean sheets coming, we would support PSG getting one on Friday along with the win.

PSG to win to nil at 4/5

Football Betting Tips for Today: Union Berlin v Mainz

The next stop for Friday’s football betting tips is the Bundesliga for this match between Union Berlin v Mainz.

It is the home side who are the 6/5 favourites on home soil for this contest but only at an odds-against quote with bookmaker Boylesports.

It has been just a one-point return from their two league games played so far. That point was collected in a 1-1 draw with Monchengladbach last weekend.

As for Mainz, they are even worse off after a couple of games, as they have dropped both of them.

It has been a total of seven goals that they have shipped in their two fixtures played as well and they are the 9/4 underdogs for Friday’s game.

In the two meetings last season in the Bundesliga, it was Union Berlin who did come out on top, collecting four points.

That included a 3-2 away win in this corresponding fixture.

Best Betting Sites Football Tip: Fiorentina v Sampdoria

Action from Serie A concludes our football betting tips today and Fiorentina are the 7/10 odds on favourites with Boylesports for the success.

It has been an opening return of a W1 L1 record for Fiorentina who will be looking to pick up the pieces of a 4-3 loss at Inter last weekend.

But that was a big effort from them and it suggests that back on home turf for Friday’s game, that they can produce three points.

In last season’s league meetings, Fiorentina were victorious in both, and that extended their unbeaten record against Sampdoria to four games in the league.

As for Sampdoria, they have lost their opening two games, conceding six goals in the process.

The visitors are 4/1 underdogs in a tough away game for them.

Given that they were beaten at home by the newly promoted Benevento last weekend, it’s hard to back them for success.

Fiorentina to win at 7/10
