Howard Webb 50/1 To NOT Award a Penalty this season
Under fire ref, Howard Webb is the subject of a new sportsbook opened by Betvictor with regard to what will happen next in the Premier League for the 2010 World Cup Final referee.
After refusing to award a couple of penalties at Old Trafford on New Year’s Day, Webb’s recent performances seem to have come under increased scrutiny, as it has emerged that Webb hasn’t awarded a penalty or a red card in 17 Premier League matches this season.
Accusations are now being thrown at Webb that he isn’t making any big calls in a World Cup year, for fear of making a clanger and ruining his chances of refereeing big games in the 2014 World Cup.
All this has prompted Betvictor to offer odds on ‘what will happen first in the Premier League this season’ with Howard Webb? Betvictor are offering 11/10 that Webb will award a red card first. They go 4/6 that it will be a penalty, and you can get a massive 50/1 that he awards neither a red card or a penalty for the remainder of the Premier League season.
Don’t forget, new account sign ups with Betvictor will receive a £25.00 Free Matched Bet, based on the amount of your first bet (ie, bet £25.00, and receive a £25.00 free bet).
