Dale Tempest is backing plenty of bookings in the Man Utd v Everton game on Sunday, with some players in particular faniced to see yellow.


Well done to Big Dunc

It’s amazing what a change of manager can do to a group of players. When Jose Mourinho left Manchester United, so deep were the hostilities between the players I think any new face would have had a positive reaction, but that certainly wasn’t the case at Everton. Step forward Big Dunc.

He’s held in such high esteem, especially by the young players, that the reaction against Chelsea was quite incredible. A simple 4-4-2 and 11 players sweating blood for the cause. 37 tackles (most of the season) but also three yellow cards and chance for a bet.

I’ve already played over cards in the game this weekend but one player who was like a man possessed at Goodison was young striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who is around 9/2 to be carded at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Four of the 14 Everton fouls were his. I'll be playing Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison for a card at nice prices.

Man Utd v Everton bets

1pt 4+ cards in the Manchester United v Everton game at 4/6

0.5pts Dominic Calvert-Lewin to be carded at 3/1

0.5pts Richarlison to be carded at 14/5


Bet of the weekend: Preston

Managers, coaches and punters have forever been trying to work out just why teams are better at home than away. Of course there are one or two exceptions, but generally the comfort blanket of home fans the familiarity of surroundings and warmth of a home team dressing room simply brings out a generally better performance from players.

It really makes little sense especially when the extremes of home and away form become detached from any sense of just a statistical quirk. Say hello to Preston North End.

As the 11 point gap suggests, Leeds and West Brom are the best two teams in the Sky Bet Championship, however they do not own the best home record as that honour goes to Alex Neil's sixth-placed side. Preston have an impressive 8-2-1 home record with an incredible 27 goals scored and their only defeat coming to a high-flying West Brom.

However, I’m sure the manager is scratching his head working out just how away from home his side have only managed six goals in 10 games, with a 2-2-6 record. Just last week, after two awful away performances at Hull and QPR (4-0 and 2-0 defeats), they bounced back in midweek to record an eighth home victory - a 2-1 win over third-placed Fulham. Deepdale is the proverbial fortress.

On Saturday they play 21st-placed Luton, who have a 2-0-9 away record with 11 scored and 28 conceded - 10 of those goals in the last two games. You can back the Preston win at around 4/6 or on -0.75 on the Asian Line which a one-goal margin of victory will give you half your stake as a win and half void or hopefully for us Preston backers a 2+ goal margin for the full win.

Best bets

1pt Preston to beat Luton at 4/6

1pt Preston (-1 on the handicap) to beat Luton at 13/8
