Bet Builder Tips
I’m hopeful of an exciting game on Merseyside as Marcelo Bielsa takes his Leeds side down the M62 to face Frank Lampard’s Everton. Two attacking managers and two teams in desperate need of points can hopefully deliver a game with plenty of goals and also plenty of cards.
I’ve taken a small punt on two players being carded, with the first of those being on Brazilian, Raphinha. Very much the stand-out player at Leeds this season and with interest from other clubs coming in it’s hard to see him at Elland Road in the longer term, but it’s easy to see why when you look at his stats this season with eight goals and two assists in the league.
Raphinha tops the ranks at Leeds for shots and goals this season but he also ranks highest of any of the squad when it comes to fouls - committing 26 since the start of the campaign. On top of that, the 25-year-old has picked up four yellow cards in his 20 appearances this season and I fancy him to pick up his fifth against the Toffees.
One player who will be eager to impress his manager after a difficult first half of the season will be Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin. After not coming off the bench against Newcastle I think we will see a start for the England and Everton striker who is another player who’s no stranger to a booking.
In the 2019/2020 season Calvert-Lewin was shown a staggering nine yellow cards in the Premier League, with only a handful of players collecting more in that campaign. (Luke Milivojevic had the most with 12).
A forward who’s not afraid to throw himself about it, and has blossomed under the guidance of Duncan Ferguson, Calvert-Lewin can be a handful for defenders but he’s also not afraid to leave the boot in. Booked on his last home appearance against Aston Villa, I think he’ll be right up for this one on Saturday.
Betfair and Paddy Power are round about top-price on both of these players being carded in this match. Combining them through the Bet Builder features pays 36/1, which certainly gives some appeal when you consider the same double pays just 18/1 on bet365.
