After an ill-tempered start, dabblebet are offering a special price of 7/2 on three or more red cards being shown in the Premier League this weekend

It has been a feisty start to the Premier League season, with seven red cards having been shown by referees during the opening two weekends.

A couple of matches have already seen multiple dismissals, with champions Chelsea seeing Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas sent off in a shock 3-2 loss at home to Burnley.

The final game of last weekend's action saw a pair of red cards too, with Kyle Walker and Morgan Schneiderlin sent for early baths in Everton's 1-1 draw at Manchester City.

So red cards could be an angle to exploit for the coming weekend's action and dabblebet is offering a juicy 7/2 (4.50) on three or more red cards in Saturday and Sunday's schedule combined.

West Brom's home game with Stoke City on Sunday is a game to watch in terms of red cards, with the last four meetings between the sides seeing three red cards shown - all of which have been to Stoke players.

Chelsea v Everton is one of the top clashes on this weekend's schedule and there have been three red cards during the previous six matches played in this fixture too.

Liverpool and Arsenal round off the weekend action at Anfield and this is another game where there has been plenty of bad blood in the past, so a dismissal is certainly possible in this one, meaning it doesn't take a lot of imagination to see how at least three red cards is very possible in the Premier League this weekend.

With both weekends of the Premier League having seen at least three red cards already this season, it is clear referees are clamping down on certain behaviours on the pitch.

Raised arms in aerial challenges in particular are being punished harshly, with Kyle Walker and Hal Robson-Kanu - who was sent off after scoring the winner for West Brom at Burnley last weekend - among those dismissed for this sort of foul.

Until players take more care - or referees ease off with their punishments - it looks likely that there will be plenty more red cards shown in the coming weeks so a price of 7/2 (4.50) with dabblebet for three or more red cards to be shown in Saturday and Sunday's matches is therefore one of the best bets of the weekend.
