Today’s football betting tips pulls into focus some European League action as new season’s start to gain traction.

The three picks that we have for today’s football betting come from Austria, Germany and Belgium.

There are some good contests to dig into and the big one of the night is Schalke v Hamburg from the Bundesliga 2.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Schalke v Hamburg

Football betting tips today starts in Germany with Schalke looking to begin a recovery.

They finished bottom of the Bundesliga last season, suffering a harsh relegation.

It was just a season to forget for many reasons and now they have to try and pick up the pieces.

A positive for Schalke is that they are undefeated in their last four home games against Hamburg (W2 D2).

This will be the first meeting between the two clubs since the 2017/18 Bundesliga when they traded home wins.

None of the last five clashes have produced an away win between them.

Hamburg missed out on promotion, finishing fourth last season in the second tier.

Their away record in the campaign was really nothing spectacular at W6 D6 L5.

Because of a substantial fall from Schalke, Hamburg are the favourite in the match outright for football betting.

The draw in the match outright has a little more appeal however as Schalke will be keen not to let anything slip at home.

Draw at 12/5

Football Betting Picks Today: St Liege v Genk

It is a look at the start of the new top-flight season in Belgium next for football betting for today.

St Liege v Genk starts the new campaign

Both Standard Liege and Genk were top-six finishers in last season’s top flight.

Genk earned themselves a fourth-place finish and they ended the season as the second-highest scorers in the division.

They posted a W7 D3 L7 road record and included in that was a 0-0 draw at Standard Liege.

The away record that Genk took in last season’s top-flight was poor against the other top six (D1 L4).

Liege saw their form fall away at the end of last season, losing five of their final six matches of the campaign.

They have picked up just one victory in their last four home games against Genk.

In the last eight meetings between the two teams, Standard Liege have claimed just one victory (D4 L3).

As both teams try and feel their way into the new season this is probably going to be a tight affair.

In the match outright for it, the away win has more appeal for football betting.

Genk to win at 13/10

Football Betting Tips for Today: Sturm Graz v RB Salzburg

Today’s football betting tips move on over to Austria as the new Bundesliga season starts there on Friday night.

Sturm Graz were third-place finishers last season, ending the campaign with a four-match winning streak.

It was a good return from them but they were still a long way behind title winners RB Salzburg in points.

The home form last season of Sturm Graz read W11 D1 L4 and they averaged two goals per game in those.

Their home fixture against Salzburg was lost though, with Sturm Graz going down 3-1.

It is a W1 D1 L2 record that Sturm Graz have taken in their last four home fixtures against RB Salzburg.

Salzburg ran away with the league title last season in the Austrian Bundesliga.

They posted a W25 D2 L5 record, finishing 15 points clear of second-placed Rapid Vienna.

The home record in the last campaign from them was W13 D1 L2.

RB Salzburg averaged over three goals per home game. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see them pick up where they left off.
