Today’s football betting tips take a look across a fairly quiet night of action in Europe. There’s not a great deal going on.

For today’s football betting we will be featuring some matches from the German and Portuguese top flights.

We have three tips for today.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Hertha Berlin v Freiburg

First for today’s football betting tips we are looking at Hertha Berlin v Freiburg.

All of the pressure in this game is on the home side who are three points from safety.

So they need to come up with a big win here to try and get themselves safe and this is one of two games in hand that they have.

Does the current form support a home win?

Maybe, as they have gone W2 D1 in their last three home fixtures, scoring at least two goals in each.

Mid-table Freiburg have nothing at stake in this one except trying to snap some poor road form.

Freiburg are on a three-match losing streak on the road. We have to swing towards the home victory.

Hertha Berlin to win at 21/20

Football Betting Picks Today: Benfica v Porto

We have a top clash in Portugal next for today’s football betting tips.

This is a two-three clash with Porto holding a four-point advantage over Benfica in the race for the second Champions League spot.

Benfica are in great shape at the moment having won seven of their last eight games (L1).

They have moved on to a W11 D2 L2 record at home this season in league action.

It has been five wins in their last six home fixtures. One question mark over them will be a lack of form this season against the other top-four teams.

Benfica are W1 D1 L2 from such fixtures, home and away. They played out a 1-1 away draw at Porto earlier this season.

The visiting Porto are in red hot form as well though having dropped just two points in their last nine league fixtures.

They have dropped only two points in their last six away games as well.

But the strange same story is there for them. They have struggled to get wins against the current top four as well this season (W1 D4).

But their unbeaten form against the other top side leads us to think that they aren’t going to get beaten on Thursday night.

Draw at 12/5

Football Betting Tips for Today: Farense v Guimaraes

The final game for football betting tips today is Farense v Guimaraes, still from the Portuguese top flight.

Farense find themselves in relegation problems, two points from safety with four to play.

But there has been a bit of a late-season surge from them.

Farense are W1 D2 in their last three league fixtures. Even a point out of this one could be precious.

A home success in the fixture doesn’t look too likely as Farense are winless in eight home games.

They have failed to score in three of their last five.

Bet at Betfair

Guimaraes only have a very slim outside shot at making the top five and getting into Europe next season.

They have to make up a seven-point gap in four matches to achieve that.

Guimaraes have been struggling for form as well with four defeats in their last six fixtures.

It’s been three straight road defeats for them and the latest of those was at the bottom side Nacional.

Maybe there is a small chance for the home side to timely end their winless home streak.

Farense to win at 21/20
