Happy New Year...

The first weekend of the year centres around the FA Cup 3rd Round, and the action kicks off with a Big One on BBC One this evening...

Liverpool v Everton – derby-day stats...

Liverpool v Everton is a classic FA Cup fixture, not to mention being one of the biggest derby matches in English football.

When these two met in the Premier League at Anfield last month we successfully used the stats to latch onto a key trend: Everton for the Most Cards.

The Toffees got 3 Yellows to Liverpool’s one that day, and recent history points to more of the same this evening:

  • Everton have received the Most Cards in 11 of the last 14 Merseyside derbies in all comps since the start of the 2011/12 season (79%)

That run includes Everton getting more players in the Ref’s notebook in 6 out of 7 meetings at Anfield.

A handful of bookies have markets available for the blue half of Merseyside to get the Most Cards or Most Booking Points again this evening.

At the time of writing the best price is ‘Most Booking Points – Everton’ at 8/13 (1.62) with Skybet. You’ll also find Booking Points markets with William Hill and Stan James, as well as Most Cards options with 888 Sport, Unibet and Marathonbet.

Booking Points bets explained (eg. Skybet, William Hill):

  • Yellow Card = 10 pts
  • Red Card = 25 pts
  • Max. for one player in a game = 35 pts (eg. 2 Yellows resulting in a Red)

Cards bets explained (eg. 888 Sport, Unibet):

  • Yellow Card = 1 Card
  • Red Card = 2 Cards
  • Max. for one player in a game = 3 Cards (eg. 2 Yellows resulting in a Red)
