Weekend Jiggle

Not really a stellar weekend overall for the FTL entrants. With three of the five selections finishing with one goal or less, the Classic U1.5 selections moved up into profit and second place, but the Extended selections fell from 1st to 7th after finding seven non-draws and 'extending' their losing run to 19.  The other profitable entries jiggled around a little, but no major changes.

For the Pros, Pete Nordsted's Drawmaster slid a little with three more losers, and his Premier Betting dropped into the red, but Football Elite found two winners and moves up to 18th.

Al found the winning draw at Everton v Swansea City, and has another draw selection in midweek - the Chelsea v Southampton game.

The Bundesliga is back this weekend, with the games at Schalke '04 and Bayer Leverkusen again qualifiers for the Bundeslayga.

The football might not have been great, but there was an exciting weekend of NFL play-off games this weekend, with plenty of trading opportunities. The best result for me was the Denver Broncos home loss v the Baltimore Ravens, but the Atlanta Falcons v Seattle Seahawks also added to the bottom line when the visitors came from 20 points down to take a very late one point lead, only to lose to a field goal. Even the New England Patriots, who I have backed to win the whole thing next month, started off slowly and drifted. I've said it before, and I'll probably say it again, but laying low in the NFL is a very sound strategy. Conference championship games coming up next weekend, and then the Superbowl.

Another sport where "laying low, is the way to go" (nice rhyme, I may have to copyright that) is the NBA, which comes to London this Thursday for a proper game, with the New York Knicks 'visiting' the Detroit Pistons at the O2 Arena.

Nice set up with the league!

do you post all of the selections before the games or just a few? i understand there are some pros here so maybe you could not post these but it would be nice to compare everyones selections.

Also how might one get involved in this, i would like to do this next season :)
