What are booking points? Booking points refer to how many red and yellow cards are shown in the match and can also be bet on separately, instead of part of a Build Your Bet.
Booking points are the points attached to yellow and red cards shown in a football match, you can bet on these at most bookies as well as adding them into different bets to enhance your odds. How do Booking points work and How much are yellow and red cards worth in booking points?
In a booking points market, you bet based upon how many yellow and red cards you think will be shown in a particular match. When you bet on this market at an online bookie, it works like this: If a yellow card is shown, 10 points are added to the total. If a red card is shown, 25 points are added to the total.
Now we understand the basics of what match booking points is, let’s move onto specifics. A yellow card is worth 10 points. A red card is worth 25 points. If two yellow cards are shown, and the player as a result gets a red card, this is worth 35 points, accounting for both cards.
We assign booking points for red and yellow cards and let you bet on how many points you think there'll be over the course of a match. What is each card worth? A yellow card earns 10 points and a red card earns 25 points.
When placing a bet on the total over bookings points markets at Sky Bet, you will strike a bet at an agreed number of points. If you choose to bet on there being over 20 points at 1/6, this is the price you will get whether the game produced over 20 points or over 90 points. For example, if you put a bet of £60 on at 1/6 and there are 25 points or more, you will win £10 and get your £60 stake back. Of course, if there’s less than 20 points you will lose your bet.
A point spread bet is also referred to as betting the spread or handicap betting. Point spread betting is a sports betting market in which a team either has to win by a specific number of points or goals, or not lose by a specific number of points or goals.
