Bookings Tips | Espanyol v Rayo Vallecano | 7th March 2016 | Sky Sports 1


BOOKINGS boff Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin) has spied a spot of value in Monday night’s La Liga contest from Barcelona.

Espanyol v Rayo Vallecano | Monday 19.30 | Sky Sports 1

Fifteenth-placed Espanyol host 17th-placed Rayo Vallecano in Barcelona with both teams struggling and in real danger of relegation.

These teams are traditionally two of Spain's dirtiest clubs. Espanyol collect plenty of cards whereas Rayo tend to collect more reds than virtually all other clubs.

David Fernandez Borbalan gets the whistle for this one and we have a 100% success rate with him this season. In career games officiating Espanyol, he dishes out 3.30 cards-per-game to the Parakeets with 3.25 cards-per-game heading Rayo Vallecano’s way,

The line of under or over 6.5 cards looks about right. However, I just feel with both clubs understanding the importance of this fixture, it’s worth going over.

The most recent five meetings between these two teams have seen total card numbers of 10-7-9-4-8 – that’s an 80% success rate in favour of Overs.

All things considered, I like the look of Over 65 Bookings Points with William Hill at 19/20. Hopefully we can get the week off to a profitable start!

If you’re new to Bookings Points, a yellow card earns 10 points and a red card earns 25 points. If a player receives 2 yellow cards and is consequently shown a red card, he receives a total of 35 booking points.

About Author

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!
