Bookings Tips | West Ham v Astra Giurgiu | 25th August 2016 | BT Sport


THE ever-popular Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin) has found an angle on the bookings markets for Thursday’s Europa League match in London.

West Ham v Astra Giurgiu | Thursday 19.45 | BT Sport

Slaven Bilic’s West Ham host Romanian outfit Astra Giurgiu at the London Stadium tonight hoping to progress to the group stages of the Europa League.

The Hammers, despite a few injuries, will be buoyed by the 1-1 draw secured in the first leg and having a valuable away goal.

German whisteblower Manuel Grade is in charge of this fixture and I’ve noticed a pattern in his Europa League games over the past two years. Basically, he has given 2-3 first-half cards in 6/6 matches.

In 2015/16, two were shown in the games between Monaco and Anderlecht as well as Sporting Lisbon v Besiktas. Three were shown in the encounter between Qarabag and Twente.

In 2014/15, he brandished two first-half cards in all of the games involving Sevilla-Reijka, Copenhagen-Bruges and Tottenham-Besiktas.

In the first leg in Romania last week Portuguese referee Artur Dias also showed two cards before the interval.

With very supportive historical stats, I’m backing 2-3 First-Half Cards at 6/5 with William Hill

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!
