Betting on yellow cards
The number of yellow cards in soccer is one of the most underestimated indicators on which you can bet in the bookmakers' offices. All soccer fans know that if a player acts rudely, he gets a yellow card, that is, a warning. If he does it one more time, or the offense is initially very serious, the card becomes a red card. So, you can bet on all this and earn good money, of course, with quality analysis.
What is a yellow card and what is it for
According to the rules of the game of football, the judge should show a yellow card for hitting the opponent, kicking before the whistle, unsportsmanlike conduct, foul play, arguing with the judge and a number of other violations. In this case the player is not removed from the field. The same disciplinary measure is used in rugby, but there the athlete leaves the field for 10 minutes, then returns. And yet, when we talk about yellow cards, we mean soccer (aka soccer).
Yellow cards have special betting principles. One other thing to be aware of is that there are a lot of parameters you can bet on, not only the number of yellow cards, but also the number of cautions. Therefore, we will look at how betting companies accept such deals and which indicators are taken into account.
How to bet on a yellow card in a bookmaker's office
It is necessary to understand that such statistics bookmakers are trying to attract the attention of new bettors. They see a wide coverage and immediately rush to make a bet. But before that, it is important to see the peculiarities of accepting such deals. We will not cite all the provisions that relate to the topic at hand, but here's what you should pay special attention to:
- if the bet concerned a particular player and he is not on the field (including as a substitute in the course of the match), a return will occur;
- if the referee's decision changes (for example, first he showed the "mustard" and then the assistant VAR (video-recording system) told him in a headset that it was a mistake - the penalty was given to the wrong player), the final decision is taken into account, which is recorded in the protocol;
- Betting on extra time is always submitted separately, so if you bet, for example, that there will be one "mustard" in the match (regular time), and it is given already in overtime, the bet will lose;
- in most BKs at least 60 minutes must pass for the match to be valid, otherwise it will be considered invalid, and all bets will be returned to customers.
- mostly bookmakers do not count the second yellow card resulting in a suspension (if two "mustard" cards become red), but there are those who count absolutely all yellow cards - both first and second (for example, the pari match official site).
