THE ever-popular Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin) has found an angle on the bookings markets for Wednesday night’s friendly in Germany.
Germany v Finland | Wednesday 19.45 | BT Sport 2
If transfer deadline day doesn’t float your boat then you might want to avert your attention to Germany tonight as they host Finland in an international friendly.
Finland have played plenty of friendly matches lately in the build-up to the recent European Championship. The past five games have featured total card counts of 0-0-2-2-0 at an average of 0.80 cards-per-game.
Germany played friendly matches too. of course. but generally they do not pick up too many cards.
Thirty-six year-old Belarusian Aleksey Kulbakov is the man in charge tonight. He averages 1.50 cards-per-game in international friendly matches having given nine cautions in six games.
More recently he has given just one card though in his past four non-competitive matches – that’s just 0.25 cards-per-game.
The obvious threat is that he gives two cards but I’m prepared to take my chances. Therefore, I’m backing Under 15 Bookings Points at 11/8 with SkyBet.
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 Bookings Points.
