CARD KING Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin) is back to attack Thursday night’s Serie A action with another bookings-based bet.
Lazio v Verona | Thursday 19.45 | BT Sport Europe
I’ve another quirky bet for you this midweek as resuscitated Verona travel to Lazio.
Don’t mention it to Mark O’Haire but referee Andrea Gervasoni makes his reappearance here. He dished out cards for fun in the recent Frosinone v Bologna encounter when we successfully tipped the overs, scuppering Mark’s Bologna-based punt.
Gervasoni has given at least six cards in 11/12 games this season and is 4/6 with Bet365 to do so again in this fixture. However, I believe there is better value in the ‘time of first card market’.
Bet365 price this up as before or after 24.00 minutes. I’ve researched this referee and he has given a card before the 24th minute in eight straight games. It appears he likes to stamp his authority early on in matches.
Furthermore, in 4/5 previous encounters between these two teams, a card has been shown before 24th minute.
At a very fair price of 5/6, I’m getting involved with a ‘card before 24.00 minutes’ with Bet365.
Lazio v Verona – Card before 24.00 minutes (5/6 Bet365)
