Bookings Tips | Lyon v Gent | 24th November 2015 | BT Sport Extra


CARD king Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin) showered us with another winner on Monday night. Next on his hit-list is the Champions League.

Lyon v Gent | Tuesday 19.45 | BT Sport Extra

The Stade de Gerland will host European football for the final time on Champions League Matchday 5 when Lyon host Gent.

Bottom of Group H, Lyon will be desperate to mark the occasion with their first victory of the campaign against a Gent side three points better off in third.

Gent can secure themselves at least a Europa League palce, and condemn Lyon to fourth, if they win or draw thanks to their superior head-to-head record.

In their previous meeting on Matchday 1, it was a fiery affair with Scottish whisteblower William Collum flashing four yellow cards and sending off two in Belgium.

Russian official Sergei Karasev gets the gig for the reverse fixture and he doesn’t tend to mess about. His last seven games have featured card totals of 3-5-8-11-4-0-6.

Champions League games this season involving Gent have accumulated 8-4-8-5 cards with total cards in Lyon’s matches reading 8-6-5-11.

On a tricky night for cards punters, I’m taking the 7/10 with William Hill on Over 45 bookings points.

If you’re new to Bookings Points – a yellow card earns 10 points and a red card earns 25 points. If a player receives two yellow cards and is consequently shown a red card, he receives a total of 35 booking points.

I first got interested in gambling through my cousin. He's a professional gambler and got me hooked as a teenager when you had to pay the 9% tax. Who remembers that?! These days I prefer to specialise on one market rather than spread myself too thinly. Hence my love of cards! Hopefully I can make others a few bob in the process of sharing my bets on WeLoveBetting. On a personal note I love most sports especially cricket, rugby and NFL. I support Tottenham and all things Welsh and outside of sport I enjoy reading autobiographies particularly with a glass of good wine!
