What Did He Say?


Recommended Posts

Bookies are generally offering around 5-2 that there will be a red card in today's Mersey derby - in its own right a decent bet because in the last seven Scouse set-tos there have been seven sendings-off, the majority for dirty Evertonian gits.


But Gamebookers are out on a limb by offering 10-1 for a red card for Rafa Benitez's (above) Liverpool, and 10-1 for an Everton one.


Back them both and you are in effect getting 9-2 for a red card in the game. That's the good news. The better news is that on Betfair you can get 2-5 that there is NO sending-off.


Let me explain what that means for the hard of understanding (Evertonians).


By taking 9-2 that there is a red card and 2-5 that there is not, you cannot fail to make a profit, unless you're an imbecile (Evertonian).


Lob £18.18 on the longer price and £71.43 on the smaller and you get a return of £100 for an outlay of just short of £90, no matter what happens.



The danger of course is in getting only one side of the bet covered. You're on yer own then, pal.
