Triplex Yellow Cards: Betting On Number Of Yellow Cards In 90 minutes

When watching football matches, we often see yellow cards. Are you aware that you can bet on yellow cards and win? Betting on football players to be booked with a yellow card may sound bizarre. Nevertheless, it has proven to be quite profitable to the average bettor. A critical aspect of betting on yellow cards is the triplex yellow cards.

What is Triplex Yellow Cards betting?

 When venturing into triplex yellow cards, you are basically betting on the number of cards that will be shown within 90 minutes of the football match. Predict if the total number of yellow cards awarded during the three chosen games will be over or under the spread offered.

The concept is quite simple. It would be best if you bet on the number of cards and/or corners in a football match instead of going for a typical final result.

Types of bookings

There are two types of booking bets:
  • Individual players;
  • Team bets.

Various bookmakers offer different markets for betting on cards in soccer. However, most bookmakers use the same points system for bookings. A yellow card can be worth 1 or 10 points, while a red card is worth 2 or 25 points. Therefore, two yellow cards result in a red, and this is worth 3 points.

The marker will usually be set around 3.5 – 5.5 cards, and you can bet Under or Over that marker.

What dictates booking odds?

Various odds vary for a player to be shown a yellow card, such as the playing position and the past attitude. So, if a second yellow card is shown to the same player, it will count. However, a red card doesn't count.

Alternatively, if a player receives two yellow cards and a subsequent red card, it will count as the player receiving two cards – one yellow and one red. Besides, in case your selected player does not participate in the match or comes off the bench after the following first card has already been granted, it will be deemed void, and your bet is lost. 

On the other hand, it is realizable to bet on which team will receive the most yellow cards, taking into account a plus or minus handicap. When looking at team bets, you may want to consider multiple things.

 You may want to consider the Number of bookings, Team/Total booking points, Minute of first booking, and First/Next/Last booking. This bet is sorted out by whichever team gets the highest number of cards in 90 minutes. Once more, a sending off as a result of two yellow cards will count as two cards.

Other than that, while looking at triplex yellow cards, you should check out which player or team in a match receives the first yellow or red card. You should note that this will only count for 90 minutes. The extra time does not count unless it is expressly stated. 

In conclusion, Cards and Bookings Point betting can be a reliable moneymaker - because success often relies on the 'character' of a team, which often remains constant whether they win or lose.
