Listen up, folks. We’re about to make watching football that little bit better.
If, like us, you like to stick a couple of quid on the weekend’s action then we’ve got just the thing for you.
For any game that’s live on television, you should get involved with a tasty match treble.
A match treble comprises of the three components (shockingly) — the result, the number of cards and the number of corners.
⚽Chelsea v Arsenal: The connoisseur's treble⚽
- Chelsea to win
- 12+ corners
- 6+ cards
So, let’s take this Sunday’s delectable offering of Chelsea v Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.
Say you fancied the Blues to win a feisty, end-to-end game, you could bet on Chelsea to win, over six cards and over twelve corners.
Or if you think it’ll be a stalemate, how about a draw, between four and six cards and under ten corners?
Whatever the case, it’s a the kind of bet that enhances the viewing experience no end and here’s why…
You find yourself cheering for seemingly innocuous passages of play.
If you go low on corners then every goal-kick is a reason to celebrate.
If you opt for under four cards then a lenient referee suddenly becomes a legend of the game.
And if you bet on a game with few cards and corners then you’ll find yourself passionately applauding sedate passes along the back four.
The best thing about this bet is it often goes the distance…
⚽Chelsea v Arsenal: The Analyst's best bet⚽
MY GRAPHIC shows exactly where Arsenal are vulnerable, writes DANNY HIGGINBOTHAM.
Their wing-backs play extremely high and so there will be acres of space for Alonso and Moses.
With his brilliant movement and ability in the air, I’m going for Morata to score a header.
Add it to your betslip: Morata to score from a header, 4/1
If you bet on between four and six cards as well as ten and twelve corners it’s common that both will be possible as the game reaches its climax.
Nothing gets the blood pumping like two corners in quick succession.
Every foul and deflected shot becomes a moment of drama.
Here at Dream Team we like to keep track with a homemade tally chart — ticking off each card and corner is oddly satisfying.
Although it’s wise to consult the official stats as you can often miss a corner here and then in all the excitement.
Match trebles are particularly advisable if you’re a neutral.
You’ll often find yourself more emotionally invested than fans of the teams involved.
So, join the fun this weekend with a match treble and get that tally chart ready.
Alvaro Morata or Alexandre Lacazette? Why not both in this weekend’s big game?
