Default WNBL Tipping 15/16

Anyone Interested?
Its going to be another tight season we could just tip winners without margins, makes it easy to keep track that way.

My tips

Star's start strong and beat Bendigo by 8
Lynx follow through to beat Sydney by 12
Townsville beat Bendigo by 10
Caps beat Dandenong by 17
Melbourne over Adelaide by 5 for a home streak to start the season

I'm cool with no margins, yeah makes it easier to keep track. or you could do margins for one game per round like the footy places do to sort out ties, but since this is just for a bit of fun we don't need to
Happy tipping

As much as I love the WNBL, I think the league can be predictable, and for that reason I like tipping margins - it spices things up a little So I will put margins for this round, but if the majority prefer no margins, I'm happy to roll with that!

SEQ over Bendigo by 9
Perth over Sydney by 6
Townsville over Bendigo by 12
Dandenong over Canberra by 2
Melbourne over Adelaide by 22

Yeah lets stick with including margins for now .. one of us will more than likely come up with some interesting way to incorporate margins into the scoring for this competition at some point soon so at least that way we'll have them all.

I am happy to do it.

I propose the following score method:
- Correct winner = 1 point
- Correct winner AND correct score margin = 5 points (in addition to the 1 point for guessing the correct winner)
- Correct winner AND a score margin of within 1 to 5 points = 3 points (in addition to the 1 point for guessing the correct winner)
- Incorrect tip = no points, regardless of score margin
- No tipping submitted = default to all tips are the away teams, no score margins included.

Does that make sense?

Based on the above, I tally the score as follows (only a lowly 5 tippers this season):

Swish83 - 22 (rd 1: 11 points + rd 2: 11 points) *5 point bonus in round 1 for the Adelaide v Melbourne game
Andy K - 20 (rd 1: 13 points + rd 2: 7 points)
WWW - 15 (rd 1: 6 points + rd 2: 9 points)
Leftfield - 8 (rd 1: 2 points + rd 2: 6 points)
JT - 4 (rd 1: 1 point + rd 2: 3 points)

In terms of tipping winners only, after 2 rounds it would look like this:
Andy K - 8 of 11
Swish83 - 8 of 11
WWW - 6 of 11
Leftfield - 5 of 11
JT - 4 of 11

WWW - 6 of 11

Round 3 done and dusted and the results look like this:
Swish83 - 34 (rd 3: 12 points)
WWW - 31 (rd 3: 16 points)
Andy K - 28 (rd 3: 8 points)
Leftfield - 13 (rd 3: 5 points)
JT - 5 (rd 3: 1 point)

In terms of tipping winners only, after 3 rounds it would look like this:
Swish83 - 14 of 18
Andy K - 13 of 18
WWW - 13 of 18
Leftfield - 10 of 18
JT - 5 of 18

WWW the mover and shaker this week, and the only person to tip 100% in terms of winners (7/7).

JT punished for not submitting tips - a woeful 1/7 based on the away-team-default.

The stragglers shouldn't be disheartened this early though, the key to this game is tipping close to the game margins - that's where the points are, as demonstrated this round by WWW (tipping 3 games correct AND a margin within 1 to 5 points, for a total of 12 points for those 3 games alone, as opposed to just 3 points if just tipping the winner only).

* My tongue-in-cheek ridiculous tipping margin of 74 for the Fire V Lightning game was in fact only 11 points off! A 63 point drubbing for Adelaide.
