Andy K - you might want to revise your tips - appears you're looking at the wrong round of matches.

After Round 8:
Swish83 - 71 (rd 8: 6 points)
WWW - 70 (rd 8: 6 points)
Andy K - 55 (rd 8: 6 points)
Leftfield - 51 (rd 8: 6 points)

In terms of tipping winners only, after 8 rounds it would look like this:
Swish83 - 31 of 47
WWW - 31 of 47
Andy K - 28 of 47
Leftfield - 28 of 47

Only 5 games in round 8, and interestingly, everyone guessed 3/5 correct and each finished with a total of 6 points each - so no changes in the overall rankings and I guess we could consider ourselves all to be the top tipsters for round 8.

I must say I was probably the unluckiest tipster for the round, coming within a single point of guessing the margin within 5 points - in 2 of the games - therefore missing out on an additional 3 points for each game (6 points in total)... Alas I couldn't pull ahead and WWW continues to chase my tail.

Fun fact: the Fire's come-from-behind win over Perth was the 35th win against the Lynx/WWW in the Fire's 15 year history - they've played each other 38 times! An incredible winning record of 92% ( 35/38 )

After Round 9:
WWW - 79 (rd 9: 9 points)
Swish83 - 76 (rd 9: 5 points)
Andy K - 61 (rd 9: 6 points)
Leftfield - 51 (rd 9: 5 points)

In terms of tipping winners only, after 9 rounds it would look like this:
WWW - 34 of 54
Swish83 - 33 of 54
Andy K - 30 of 54
Leftfield - 30 of 54

Wow, a tough round for tipping with several unpredictable outcomes - we collectively tipped a woeful 9/28!! Not one of us predicted Bendigo to beat Townsville, Adelaide to beat Sydney, or Dandenong to beat Perth.

Andy K correctly guessed Perth to beat Melbourne by 11 points - just the second time out of 54 games this season one of us has guessed the correct winner and the exact winning margin - a total of 5 points for that effort.

WWW the best tipster of this round, 9 points in total and a seat on top of the ladder, for now

Man my tipping stinks this season, without watching teams play I really have no idea. The WNBL must have lost followers this season without a TV deal.
Basketball Australia should be ashamed, really ashamed, We have the second best quality women's league here in Australia with no coverage, honestly its an outrage.

After Round 10:
WWW - 87 (rd 10: 8 points)
Swish83 - 84 (rd 10: 8 points)
Andy K - 66 (rd 10: 5 points)
Leftfield - 63 (rd 10: 7 points)

In terms of tipping winners only, after 10 rounds it would look like this:
Swish83 - 38 of 60
WWW - 36 of 60
Andy K - 35 of 60
Leftfield - 34 of 60

Another round with little movement between the four, though Leftfield has made some ground on Andy K. WWW equal top scorer with myself (8 points each), this is despite WWW tipping only 2 out of 6 correct (the worst percentage out of all of us). It proves the value in tipping close to the game margin.

And just on the margins - WWW has only tipped 2 more correct winners than Leftfield since the beginning of the season - yet is 24 points ahead. Moral of the story: think long and hard about your margins!!

Yes maybe one day I will correctly predict a Caps upset, they have been losing some close ones so at least they have been in with a chance

After Round 11:
WWW - 100 (rd 11: 13 points)
Swish83 - 94 (rd 11: 10 points)
Andy K - 76 (rd 11: 10 points)
Leftfield - 68 (rd 11: 5 points)

In terms of tipping winners only, after 11 rounds it would look like this:
Swish83 - 41 of 67
WWW - 40 of 67
Andy K - 39 of 67
Leftfield - 36 of 67

WWW with another gong for top tipster of the week, hitting the century, and strengthening a hold on top spot in the process - in a good position going into the Xmas break

I managed just the third correct tip + correct margin of the season with my prediction of a Sydney 3 point win over Bendigo - 5 points for that tip alone!

Leftfield, the worst tipster of the week, and falling behind a little further - a big effort needed post-xmas!
