Today’s football betting tips all come from the UEFA Europa Conference League qualifying that is happening on the night.

The qualification rounds are quickly rolling along and there are three selections that we have for the night.

A few familiar names are creeping into the action.

We look at three games for football betting today which is all about looking for those likely match winners.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Gent v Valerenga

Football betting tips today starts with a look at Belgian side Gent whose end of season flourish got them to Europe.

They closed out their last league campaign with a four-match winning streak.

As for last season’s European action, they started in the Champions League qualifiers and fell from there to the Europa League Group stage.

That didn’t go well for Gent as they lost all group stage matches. So that leaves their European record at W1 L8 in their last nine such fixtures.

Valerenga had never met Gent before.

The Norwegian side do have a little bit of an advantage because they are match fit.

Their new domestic season started in early May so they are up and running.

Valerenga haven’t been a goal-shy team this season either and this is an interesting fixture as they enter qualification.

This Europa Conference League has opened up a spot for Valerenga in Europe for the first time since the 2011/12 Europa League.

They could hold their own.

Draw at 14/5

Football Betting Picks Today: Hammarby v Maribor

Next up for football betting for today is this qualifying tie between Hammarby and Maribor in the UEFA Europa Conference League.

Swedish side Hammarby are already eleven games into their new domestic season.

So they have home advantage and are match fit. They have yet to lose at home this season.

They enter the Europa Conference League qualification and face Maribor for the first time.

The one concern for Hammarby perhaps is the lack of clean sheets.

They have managed one only in their last eight fixtures.

But can Mairbor do enough to cause an upset on the night and grab a first-leg advantage?

Their new domestic season started last weekend and they claimed a narrow away win.

The Slovenians have been in European action, taking a 2-0 aggregate win over Uralan in the previous round of Europa Conference League qualification.

Last season they couldn’t get past Coleraine in Europa League qualification. They may well find Hammarby too much.

Hammarby to win at 4/5

Football for Today: Molde v Servette

The final selection for today’s football betting tips is going to be a home win for Molde in this tie.

Norwegian side Molde have played a good chunk of their new domestic season.

So that’s match fitness on their side. The form is there as well as they have won six of their last eight games (D1 L1).

This is their opening foray into the Conference League as they meet Servette for the first time.

There’s not too much to go on, therefore, but Molde are W6 L1 at home this season and have scored at least two goals in all home fixtures.

Bet at Bet365

Swiss side Servette are coming in cold as they also enter this round of qualification.

They tried the Europa League qualifiers last season and didn’t get very far in that.

Servette lost out to French side Reims on home turf, dashing their qualification hopes.

Molde looked at the sensible way to go for today’s football betting.

Molde to win at 10/11
