Bookings Tips | Sporting Lisbon v Besiktas | 10th December 2015 | BT Sport 2


CARD king Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin) has unearthed a bookings angle from the Europa League on Thursday night.

Sporting Lisbon v Besiktas | Thursday 20.05 | BT Sport 2

Sporting Lisbon and Besiktas look to be facing a straight battle for a Europa League Round of 32 place as they come together in Group H on Matchday 6.

Sporting will qualify with a win or with a draw, on head-to-head record at Lokomotiv Moscow’s expense, if the Russian outfit lose to Skenderbeu.

Besiktas need only avoid defeat to make it through. They will miss out if they lose and Lokomotiv win.

Regular readers will know I’m a big fan of cards with Sporting, given the passion of their fans and manager Jorge Jesus.

The referee for this one is Manuel Grafe. He only averages 3.14 cards-per-game but that is in Germany, which is notoriously low for cards.

In European games though he’s dished out five or more cards in all bar one of his nine appearances.

It’s not a huge price but the Over 4.5 cards at 8/13 (Bet365) looks good to me as we move towards the weekend games.

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!
