During a Premier League match held this season, an Arsenal player was given a yellow card which arose a great deal of suspicion among the Football Association, causing the FA to move in to investigate the accusations.

According to the Atlantic, the FA was alerted by the bookmakers regarding the situation but a formal investigation has still not in play, though the FA keeps the allegations under secrecy the FA spokesperson said: “The FA is aware of the matter in question and is looking into it.”

However, Arsenal has decided not to comment regarding the suspicious yellow carding, during the match.

Just like the famous movie, “Focus”, spot betting is when gamblers place bets on little things, little details of a match, something like, which player will score a goal, or whether an individual will be getting a yellow card, but bets aren’t done, before the game, as most may think, the best bets happen when the game is in motion. Bigger the stake, the bigger the reward. This is also why Sportradar reported that up to 90% of suspicious activity around sports gambling happens during the game.

The most famous incidents had placed spot-fixing as a huge concern in British sport, one scene took place in 2012, when the Essex cricketer Mervyn Westfield, was jailed for four months after he admitted to bowling in a specific way in which he could score a certain number of runs during a Natwest Pro40 Match.

And here’s another, professional footballer, Bradley Wood was banned from playing for six years in the April of 2018, when text messages between him and seven of his friends made a deal with an acquaintance, who stood to win £10,000 collectively, unfortunately, for the athlete, the sum was never paid in full.
