Football Cards & Booking Points Accumulator Predictions & Betting Tips


What is Cards & Booking Points betting?


Cards & Booking Points is an often overlooked football betting market that can offer fantastic value if you know what to look for. It provides an interesting way to watch a football match as goals and corners become irrelevant, the only thing that matters is players getting yellow and red cards.

Betting on cards & booking points in-play offers massive potential if you are able the judge the mood and temperament of teams and players as the action unfolds.

Booking Points are usually calculated the following way:

  • Yellow Card = 10 Booking Points
  • Two Yellow Cards (Red Card) = 25 Booking Points
  • Red Card = 25 Booking Points

The maximum number of booking points that can be accumulated by one player is therefore 35 points.

Another way to bet on cards is selecting the first player to be booked, and betting on any particular player to pick up a booking during the match. You can also bet on a player to be sent off during a football match.

In football matches where extra time is possible, both teams to score & win bets are settled at the end of 90 minutes plus injury time. Extra time isn’t factored into the equation and is often located in a different market (check bookmaker T&Cs).

How do we pick Cards & Booking Points tips?


We are constantly up-to-date with the latest football news and developments that might affect our predictions such as injuries, suspensions and managerial changes. Our Free Tips football experts use many different methods and techniques to pick cards and booking points tips. 

Derbies are a great starting point when looking at a lot of cards to be produced in a football match. Liverpool vs Everton in the Merseyside derby, Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid, Internazionale vs AC Milan, Manchester United vs Manchester City and Sporting Clube de Portugal vs Benfica are just some of the most hotly contested derbies in world football.

Studying the history of these matches is often a good starting point when we look at the cards and booking points markets. We also look at particular players that are susceptible of picking up cards, usually players in defensive positions and players with hot fuses who are find it difficult to control their emotions.

Let’s take a look at the 2017/18 Bundesliga season for some examples. Eintracht Frankfurt picked up 72 yellow and two red cards to be the most booked team in the competition. At the other end of the spectrum, Borussia Dortmund players earned 39 yellow and three red cards. 

Bayern Munich were the team with the lowest amount of cards & booking points with 42 yellow cards and no player sent off all season. What that immediately suggests is that the teams at the top of the table who are dominating and winning most games are unlikely to pick up a lot of cards & booking points.

Another important factor when looking at cards & booking points in football matches are referees. It’s common knowledge that many referees like to be the star of the show and fail to let the game flow. 

If we switch to the 2017/18 English Premier League season, referee Michael Oliver was one of the most card happy with 100 yellow and five red cards awarded in 30 matches. Jonathan Moss was close behind with 107 yellow and three red cards awarded in 29 matches, Martin Atkinson dishing out 102 yellow and five red cards awarded in 28 matches.

When we break that down into booking points per game, Martin Atkinson
Came out on top with 40.89. Mike Dean wasn’t far behind with 40.20 points per game and Jonathan Moss right behind at 39.14.

At the other end of the scale in the 2017/18 English Premier League season, referee Lee Probert kept his cards in his pocket for the most part with 17.86 booking points per game in the 14 matches he presided over. Kevin Friend was the next lenient with 21.90 booking points per game in 21 matches.

When looking at the first player to be booked, it’s useful to have an idea which team will start on the front foot and where they are likely to attack the opposition. A team might be starting a rookie at left-back who will be targeted by a tricky winger. This would increase his probability of picking up the first booking and one during the match.

Some players are so reckless and conducive to getting sent off that they become attractive propositions for a red card during a football match.
