TL;DR Red cards are difficult to predict and they can turn the tables in a match very quickly, but sports betting sites wouldn’t be what they are if they didn’t use this opportunity to offer some betting options related to bookings. Take a look at how the red card odds pay World Cup by visiting some of the top bookmakers listed above.

You can think of teams to win a certain group or players to become the top scorers in the World Cup 2018 all you want, but there are factors that make these guesses impossible to agree upon for certain.

One of such factors is that players often commit fouls and earn bookings — red cards or yellow cards as a result. Red cards disqualify the players from the match and even some upcoming matches, which often puts the team into a slight disarray and ends the player’s hopes to help their team or score goals.

While it’s difficult to predict when these cards will be used by the referees, there some general tendencies which we’ll share in case you want to make some money by betting in the bookings market of 2018 World Cup. Furthermore, we can also look at the past number of red cards in World Cups (as well as the number of yellow cards in World Cup), which teams have collected most red cards in World Cups, and which players have received the most World Cup red cards to help inform our betting.




Bookings Odds at Football

It is not uncommon to see one or two yellow cards during every match, but red cards are much rarer. If you want to predict which players or teams will earn one, and therefore predict the World Cup red card odds, there are several things to consider:

1. Underdogs earn more red cards

If the teams playing against one another aren’t of equal strength, it’s much more likely that the weaker team will earn more bookings. Why? Because they are forced to play more carelessly in order to outweigh their disadvantage.

2. Defenders earn more red cards

Defenders are also more likely to earn a red cards in the World Cup than attackers. When you’re defending, playing roughly is much more reasonable that when you’re attacking. So, if you know that one of the two teams focuses on attacking, you’ll want to bet on the other team as the one to earn more bookings.

3. It all boils down to the referee

On the other hand, a lot depends on the referee as it’s only his judgement that makes the difference between a simple foul and a foul that deserves a yellow or red card. This opens up plenty of other betting options too, as you can bet on many different referee odds, including world cup final referee odds.

World Cup Red Cards Odds

  • And several others…
