CARD KING Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin) was in outstanding form again at the weekend. Next he’s highlighted a bit of bookings value from Tuesday night’s Premier League.
Aston Villa v Crystal Palace | Tuesday 19.45
There is bonus Premier League action on the menu this midweek with a few crunch encounters on the way. The first that caught my eye was Crystal Palace’s trip to downright awful Aston Villa…
You will have probably seen angry Villa fans confronting the players after the latest debacle against Wycombe. Amongst other things, fans were accusing the players of a lack of passion.
Villa look doomed but perhaps this rollicking and public embarrassment will stir them into a more solid performance with at least some heart and pride in the jersey?
Let’s hope so as I’m advising a bit on them. They are one of the Premier League’s most ill-disciplined teams, averaging 2.10 cards-per-game.
In previous matches against Tuesday’s visitors Crystal Palace, the Villans have collected total card figures of 3-1-2-2-2.
Mark Clattenburg is the man with the whistle and he’s averaging 3.25 cards-per-game. However, in his two previous games officiating Villa he dished out four cards in their opening day win at Bournemouth and, prior to that, two in a end of season victory over Everton.
I’m backing Villa to collect Over 1.5 Cards at 8/11 with Bet365.
