The FA’s betting probe into an Arsenal player is said to revolve around a £55,000 gamble being placed on a booking.
Bookmakers have reported ‘suspicious betting patterns’ around a Star Gunner gets carded.
Bookmakers have flagged an ‘unusual amount of money placed on Arsenal players shown in yellow’, The Athletic reported for the first time.
And now follow Daily mail, The poll comes after a huge £55k bet was placed on the Gunners at the end of the match.
They say FA integrity and intelligence analysts are leading inquiries for Betradar.
Betradar is a sports data company that specializes in identifying ‘abnormal bets and match-fixing and match-fixing possibilities’.
The governing body has yet to officially open an investigation and is expected to speak with Arsenal and their players before doing so.
An industry expert who has studied trading patterns for the match told the Mail that while the betting is highly unusual, it is unlikely to be linked to any corruption.
“The ten-minute trade before that yellow was nothing like I’ve seen before,” he explains.
“It doesn’t look normal but what makes the most of it is that it’s the perfect storm of fighters fighting each other rather than fixing.
“I have to emphasize that people lose money as well as win.
“I don’t think Premier League footballers on £175,000-a-week are fixed, even with the slightly larger amounts you can win on the exchanges.”
Football has been rocked by gambling scandals in the past.
Star of England and Newcastle Kieran Trippier fined £70,000 and banned for 10 weeks for breach in December 2020.
And earlier that year, Former Three Lions and Liverpool goalkeeper Daniel Sturridge is also banned from playing for 4 months for the transfer information he provided to his family.
