Betting on cards to be given out in football always seems like a complete gamble rather than logical thinking or statistical analysis, when in fact quite the opposite can be true and profits can be gained when looking at card stats from certain teams.

Looking at trends within certain teams play styles and the number of cards they pick up can lead to you finding great selections at profitable prices.

When you think of teams in the Premier League who pick up the most cards your mind is probably instantly drawn to the Burnley’s and the Cardiff’s of the world, teams with a rough and tumble style which leads to them giving away the most fouls picking up lots of bookings along the way. You would expect this to be doubled down when the teams are playing away from home whilst they are completely dominated and see very little of the ball.

But in reality quite the opposite is the case. Cardiff for instance only pick up 1.64 cards per game when playing away from home. Less than teams who are praised for their expansive styles of play; Wolves, West Ham and even Manchester City.

The league leaders for cards picked up in games away from home is Manchester United with a staggering 2.44 cards per away game. Defensive minded teams aren’t always the ones to back in terms of receiving cards in games where they are expected to be dominated. Contrary to popular opinion around the likes of Neil Warnock and Sean Dyche are like as managers and the lengths their teams go to in order to grind out results, Pep Guardiola and Manuel Pellegrini have still seen their teams pick up more cautions in away games so far this season.

So what does that tell you? Stats are everything and if you want to make money on card betting that is where you have to be looking. Misconceptions are wry in football and beliefs that the top teams don’t have to resort to playing dirty to get a result can cost you money on a weekly basis. This trend is all over Europe. Juventus are a brilliant example of this with the Max Allegri’s side averaging 2.5 cards per game when they play away from home, ranking amongst the highest in Serie A.
