CARD KING Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin) heads Down Under on Saturday morning for the big Melbourne derby.
Melbourne Victory v Melbourne City | Saturday 09.50 | BT Sport 1
Last week we had the Sydney derby in Australia’s A-League – now it’s the turn of Melbourne.
This is a deliberately short piece as I want you to get on the incredible price available!
There were 10 cards in the last meeting between these two and the same official who took charge of that is in charge this time around.
Chris Beath is his name. He is in decent form too having given out five cards in the 3-3 draw between Perth and Gold Coast Mariners.
Beath averages 2.73 cards per-game to both Melbourne teams, implying 5.46 might be his average when they lock horns. Of course that stat wouldn’t factor in that this is a derby.
Melbourne City had three yellows and a red in their opening weekend win at Wellington. Melbourne Victory received three yellows in a 1-1 draw at Brisbane.
Bet365 opened up at 11/10 at Over 4.5 Cards for this weekend’s derby. My eyes nearly fell out of my head!
That price has gone but 10/11 is still available. It looks a major, major bet.
