Tipster League - Fizzers And Sparklers

After a record number of selections this week, and the Monday night games in the books, here are the latest standings. Not much time for a detailed update, so highlights and lowlights only.

The new overall leader is Forza Fizzer who showed that last week wasn't a one-off fluke and added a solid 6.14 points to overtake Emp who made a small loss. 10 points clear in the race for £250.

The big winner (+11.76) was The Football Analyst, who once again performed well in the first weekend of the month. Graeme moves up 6 places to 16th, and reduces his bounty liability by £100 to £300. Newcastle United's win over Chelsea was the big winner for Graeme.

After a week off, Fedslam was up over 8 points and moves into profit (and prize money) and up 8 places. Early days for Hofs Hackers, but results so far are promising +5.47 from the 8 selections to date. He sits in second prize spot looking at £125.

No one else moved by more than three places - the XX Draws (Under) slipped three places after dropping 0.26 points. It was a weekend of two halves for yours truly. Saturday saw 3 winning draws from 7 selections, with 5 going under, and three winners from three for the Value Selections. Sunday and Monday, not so good. No draws from 6, only 2 matches staying under, and all three value selections (all in Italy) failed to win.

At the bottom, Premier Betting made 0.5 points profit, but not enough to move out of the basement. Their big winner was the Everton v Tottenham Hotspur game which stayed under 1.5, and also gave Peter Nordsted a Drawmaster winner.

For the table as a whole, it was a good weekend, up 29.84 points, and eight entries are now in profit, including Football Elite who are finding their feet again after a challenging start to the season.

As always, let me know if you see any errors in the table. With 183 selections (some duplicates of course) to check, from at least 12 leagues, the possibility of error is very real.

The weekly John Walsh NFL and NHL updates will have to wait.
