The big highlight of the best betting tips for Wednesday evening is the Europa League Final.

Manchester United will be eyeing up success in Gdansk, Poland as they face Villarreal for the silverware.

There’s not a great deal going on otherwise across Europe.

So we have broken it down to the three best football betting tips for the day.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Villarreal v Manchester United

Football betting tips today start with the big Europa League final between Villarreal and Manchester United.

This is a very interesting fixture.

Villarreal are undefeated in Europe this season as they hunt their club’s biggest title.

The Spaniards are the underdogs however and in their last six fixtures in all competitions have posted a W3 D1 L2 record.

In the last round they knocked out Arsenal, so have seen off Premier League opposition already.

All four of the previous matches between Villarreal and Manchester United have ended in a 0-0 draw.

Those were all Champions League matches.

Manchester United’s form has gone off the boil, having lost three of their last six in all competitions (W2 D1).

That has partly coincided with an injury to key centre half Harry Maguire.

The Red Devils though have been largely untroubled on a smooth run through the Europa League this season.

There may not be too much between the two clubs on the night, but the extra bit of quality and strength is on the side of Manchester United.

Manchester United to win at 5/6

Football Betting Picks Today: Cologne v Holstein Kiel

Next for football betting for today, we have a duel between Cologne and Holstein Kiel from Germany.

Cologne finished third from bottom in the Bundesliga this season, meaning that they go into this relegation playoff.

In it, they will face promotion-hopeful Holstein Kiel from the second tier.

The winner of the tie gets to play in the top flight next season.

Cologne did win three of their final five league games of the season, so that should at least give them a bit of momentum.

In their two previous matches against Holstein Kiel, Cologne are W1 D1.

Holstein Keil were steaming towards the end of the league season in fine form, winning four on the bounce.

But then they crashed to back to back losses in their final two games.

One thing that Holstein Kiel have, is goals in them. They have scored at least two goals in five of their last six fixtures.

They are going to put pressure on the hosts in this first leg. The second leg is on Saturday.

Draw at 12/5

Football Betting Tips for Today: Esbjerg v Helsingor

Today’s football betting tips, on a really quiet night, next pull a pick from the Danish Division 1.

Not the most glamorous of matches to get stuck into at all, but there is a reasonably-priced away pick here.

This is a top-four clash and Esbjerg have been struggling for form recently.

They have lost five of their last seven league games (W2), claiming two wins only in their last eight.

So they are struggling, especially with back to back home defeats.

Interestingly those two home losses were against teams currently in the top five with them.

So the visiting Helsingor, who are fourth, should have a chance here.

They have won four of their last six league games (D1 L1) and therefore in much better shape.

Helsingor have won five of their last eight road games and just at the end of last month claimed a 3-0 success at Viborg who are the league leaders.

Helsingor to win at 5/2
