New Coral customers get fab 5/1 on a yellow card in Tyne-Wear derby

| 20.12.2014

Looking forward to the Tyne-Wear derby and fancy a flutter on it, but new to betting? Coral can oblige with a sensational introductory offer.

If you sign up and register for an online betting account with us now, we will hand you a 5/1 price on there being a yellow card issued in the Tyne-Wear derby between Newcastle United and Sunderland. That’s right, just a single player has to pick up a booking here, and you will be quids in.

Please note there is a maximum stake of £5 on this amazing offer but, even so, there’s a return of £30 and £25 pure profit. If you need any more persuading to sign up to Coral, then read on to discover why this bet is a sure-fire one.

From 14 derby days in the last decade, there have been 67 bookings and five red cards brandished. Over the last four seasons, 43 yellows have been shown by officials in the last eight encounters, which is an average of just under 5.5 per game.

The stats are certainly on the side of this bet coming off, with none of these matches going by without a referee reaching for his pocket. What only confirms the certainty of this happening is the combative personnel in Magpies and Black Cats ranks.

Sunderland’s midfield is anchored by Lee Cattermole, who is known to have an appalling disciplinary record. He has been booked 75 times in the Premier League, with four of those being second cautions. Seven of those yellows have come this season.

Opposite number in the Newcastle engine room Cheick Tiote has cultivated a similar reputation for being in the referee’s book. In just 115 Premier League outings, he has been cautioned 46 times, which is an average of almost one yellow for every two matches played.

With such combustible elements set to collide on the pitch, there’s no doubt that someone will be booked at St James’ Park. So, what are you waiting for? Sign up now and turn £5 into £30 with our craziest Christmas offer yet.
