Boyle 19/10 On Merseyside Red Card
Bookmaker Boylesports are offering 19/10 that there’s a red card in this weekend’s Merseyside derby, a fixture that has seen four players sent off in the last four meetings.
With Liverpool making the headlines in the High Court rather than on the pitch this week, Boylesports are predicting another fiery encounter in the so-called “Friendly Derby” at Goodison Park on Saturday.
The Irish bookie is 13/2 that a player from both sides is given his marching orders, while it is 28/1 that either manager is sent to the stands.
Punters can also get 8/1 that any player bags a hat-trick and it’s the same price for anyone to miss a spot-kick.
Liverpool, despite their on and off field problems, are still 4/6 to finish above their city rivals against 11/10 that David Moyes’ side finish above the Reds.
“After all the problems that Liverpool have had to deal with, a feisty derby at Goodison Park is not an ideal fixture,” comments Boylesports Head of PR Leon Blanche. “This is one of the world’s greatest rivalries with not just bragging rights on the line, but valuable points too. Expect fireworks on Sunday.”
