Better Late Than Never

It appears that an end to the 149 day NBA Lockout is finally in sight, with a shortened 66 game season starting on Xmas Day, rather then the usual 82 game season. There are still a few legal hoops for the two sides to jump through, but the news is looking better than it has for a long time.

No winners from the two XX Draw selections this weekend, with Koln v Borussia Moenchengladbach finishing with a lopsided 3-0 for the visitors (I say visitors because I really can't be arsed to write out Borussia Moenchengladbach in full all over again), and today's selection of Bolton Wanderers v Everton was somewhat messed up with a 19' sending-off. It happens, and the ROI on the draw selections drops to 26.5% on the season with the only crumb of comfort this weekend coming from the Under 2.5 goals in this game, which was a winner at 2.16. The ROI on backing this option is now at 14.1%.

After 262 matches that have qualified as XX Draw Selections, I have had just two that finished as 3-3 draws. Geoff makes his debut in the Friendly Tipster League today, and in his first six selections, flukes not just one 3-3 draw, but two. First he picks Hertha Berlin v Bayer Leverkusen, and then the Airdrie v Arbroath match finished the same way.

Griff's Draw picking woes continue, with another two losses in the Norwich City v QPR and WBA v Tottenham Hotspur.

More matches still to come this weekend, and complete updates once the results are all in.

The imminent games at West Ham United (v Derby County) and Arsenal (v Fulham) are FTS selections (Lay The Draw) from the recuperating Ian Erskine.

Seems my earlier post about technical problems not happening only to Betfair was prescient, as Betfair had some issues themselves this afternoon.

You could include the FTS selections in your Friendly Tipster League as backing the draw?
