The most common player betting markets are Anytime Scorer and First Scorer bets...
Bookmakers will allow you to bet on any player from either team to score either:
the First Goal in the game
the Last Goal in the game
to score at Anytime during the game
The First and Last scorer bets are more difficult to predict, but offer bigger odds. Some bookmakers will offer Each-Way odds on First Goalscorer bets, paying out a fraction (usually 1/3 or 1/4 of the odds) if your pick is the second or third scorer.
A few bookmakers will allow you to bet on a player from either team to receive a Card (Yellow or Red) at anytime during the game.
Here you're betting on which player from either team will receive the First Card (Yellow or Red) of the match. This market is more difficult to predict than a player to receive a Card at anytime, but offers much bigger odds.
