FTL Update 30.1.14

There is one midweek selection still to be resolved (Neil is looking for a draw in the Nottingham Forest v Watford game) but as he is 30 points adrift right now, it's hardly going to make a difference.

Of the entries in profit, the big winner last weekend was the boring but useful Bundeslayga system with three winners from three and a move up the table of four places. The big loser was Peter Nordsted's Drawmaster which had no winners from four selections and dropped four places. Other than that, no one moved more than one place, and the top two remained the same - Cassini Value Selections holding a narrow lead ahead of Hofs Hackers.

Risking the kiss of death, I'll mention that the Cassini Value Selections are on quite a run right now - the last ten selections dating back to before Xmas have seen nine winners, and the spreadsheet is almost 'green all over':

Southampton's loss will teach me not to go for long-shots! Here are the 'in-profit' entries:
Having generously excluded my Value Selections from prize eligibility, it would be a nice surprise were the Bundeslayga selections to grab a consolation prize.

The highlight of the 'not-too-far-behind' section of the table was The Football Analyst who moved up two places (and trimmed his bounty liability by £25 to £175 thanks to Heart of Midlothian who were Away winners at Ross County on Saturday for him, and winners again last night at home to St Mirren, both by a scoreline of 2-1 coincidentally. As a result, Graeme swaps places with the XX Draws (Unders).
And then there are the rest. Little change at the bottom with some big guns still languishing. Football Elite and Premier Betting both made small profits, as did Rubicon who's on something on a roll, but these all have a long road back to the land of profit.  
With one game left, albeit the big one, it appears the road to profit has already closed for John Walsh and his NFL selections. Here's the results since the last update:
John's Moneyline selections are actually in profit on the season, albeit by only 0.26 points, and the damage was done by the Handicap bets (down 17.21 points) and the Totals bets (down 15.65 points).

Since we haven't updated the NHL results for a while, here are the results since the last update:
