Bookings Tips | 3rd January 2016


TWO bookings bets from La Liga this weekend for Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin). What do you think?

Rayo Vallecano v Real Sociedad | Sunday 11:00 | Sky Sports 5

There is a real relegation dogfight expected on Sunday morning as Real Sociedad travel to the capital to play Rayo Vallecano. Both sides will understand the importance of this battle. Rayo Vallecano are in the bottom three and Sociedad just outside. This match is key.

Mateu Lahoz gets the whistle for this one. He is a very experienced referee who averages 4.87 cards per game. However, he is an official I have followed for many years now and I think that is a misleading stat as he has officiated a lot of the big clubs where cards are less much less often.

No team collects more red cards than Rayo. The hosts have picked up seven already this term. Overall, they average cards 3.76 per game this season. The visitors from the Basque country average 3.46 per game.

Bet365 price this up at 6.5 cards but we can back over 55pts with William Hill at a very reasonable 4/5. With a lot at stake, that gets my recommendation.

Real Betis v Eibar | Sunday 15:00 | Sky Interactive

A mid-table battle lays ahead in Seville on Sunday afternoon as Eibar travel to take on Real Betis. Eibar have been the surprise package of La Liga so far but are just starting to slip down the table.

They are the second most ill disciplined team averaging 3.65 cards per game. Betis average 3.47 cards per game and their average has been steadily increasing lately.

The referee for this battle is Prieto Iglesias. He averages 5.5 cards per game. He has officiated both teams already this season. He gave Betis five cards and Eibar three in those encounters.

William Hill price over 55pts as a 1/2 shot but Bet365 are being far more generous offering 5/6 on over 5.5 cards. With compelling stats I’m backing exactly that.

Best Bets

Rayo Vallecano v Real Soicedad – Over 55 Booking Points (4/5 William Hill)

Real Betis v Eibar – Over 5.5 Cards (5/6 Bet365)

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!
