Betting on football bookings has become the newest hype in the betting industry, however, people would like to know the art of betting on bookings and how to come out profitable. We’ll be looking at the strategies for betting on bookings and how to bet on how many cards will be issued in a match.

The football cards market, as it is so called, is a type of bet where a bettor needs to use their skill, ability, and judgement to correctly cypher the relevant information, then make financial gain by foretelling how many yellow or red cards will be shown in any given match, which player or players will get put in the ref’s pocket or which side will collect the most bookings.

There are 5 basic factors to take into account before placing any cards market bets.

Five Factors of Betting on Football Bookings

#1 - The Referee

#2 - The Diver

#3 - The Niggler

#4 - The Local Derby

#5 - The Strong Centre Half

#1 - The Referee

It is the norm to lambast referees and get on their back about how much technological help they need, be it in the form of goal-line technology, vanishing spray or even sideline communicators, however, the more one knows about each ref and assessing how strict or lenient they can be. If you don’t know how to assess these factors, there are resources that determine a ref’s severity, such as stat bunker.com, guardian.touch-line.com and so on. These resources provide everything on a ref from how many cards he has given which could assist a bettor in predicting the rate that yellow or red cards are given.

#2 - The Diver

The same as having knowledge of the ref, it’s always good to know if there are one or more of those players who tend to spend more time on the stage rehearsing their falls than on the field. Having more divers picked for a match will most likely result in there being more cards. In other words, if a diver is successful, he will get his opponent booked. If he was unsuccessful, it is most likely he will receive a card for his dramatical performance.

#3 - The Niggler

Like the diver, all professional teams have a player that is known as the niggler. He is the one who always tends to pull on shirts, trip opponents and always wants to have the last say with the ref as if he trying to compete for the most bookings in a season. Identifying the niggler before you place you cards market bet and you are bound to be the counting your profits if there are several nigglers on the field in a single match.

#4 - The Local Derby

Derby matches turn even the most peaceful player on the field into a bloodthirsty animal for the 90 plus minutes on match day. Automatically, cards are common in derby matches and although the odds are often lower than usual it is an easy bet. Even though a ref will try their hardest not to reach for his pocket in these encounters, he eventually reaches into his pocket before the field turns into a battlefield. Once this has happened, sit back and watch the cards tick over.

#5 - The Strong Centre Half

That strong centre half has undoubtedly got to sacrifice themselves from time to time in order to stop the opposite striker from having a clear run on goal. Take one striker with a reputation for making fast starts, and add a no-nonsense centre half and carnage will surely follow.
