And here we are, the final game of the year, and the one week where the footy-hating person in your immediate family will suddenly show interest in the team their friend supports halfheartedly for a few days, just to join in on the fun. A weird time, to be sure. I have Adelaide semi-comfortably icing … Continue reading Tipping: Before Finals Week 4, 2017
Well I watched both games this weekend, and only one was vaguely interesting for 2 and a half quarters. Please let the grand final be close, the only problem is Adelaide. They have been dominant all year, and have continued to be in the finals series. Do Richmond stand a chance? Into the ratings, and … Continue reading Tipping/Ratings: After Finals Week 3, 2017
Oh, whoops, I forgot about this. Here are my tips.
Only 4 teams left, which means most of the remaining teams should be enjoying pretty decent premiership chances. Adelaide have gone from 39% to 46% over the last week. This will most be due to the elimination of Sydney, who were 3rd favourites for the premiership. Now they won't have to play them in the … Continue reading Finals Prediction: After Finals Week 2, 2017
Well, that couldn't have actually gone much worse. Sadly, it's another year of not achieving any targets. Unfortunately, we didn't get any close games either. In fact, aside from the closest final of all time, there have been no remotely close finals. The closest finals aside from that was the 36-point margin for Adelaide vs. … Continue reading Tipping: After Finals Week 2, 2017
That's right. I have both favourites winning, but only very slimly. Could West Coast emulate the 2016 Bulldogs in 2017? Not really - it's just a media angle - but it would be a very good time to suddenly become a great football team.
Port Adelaide was 6th favourite for the flag last week with a premiership chance of 8%. Now that they're out, someone will use that percentage to catch up. It's pretty easy to see who that was. Adelaide remain favourites for the premiership, although their chances fell from 42% to 39% (the lowest they've been since … Continue reading Finals Prediction: After Finals Week 1, 2017
That was not a great tipping week, as it seems that my MAE target may now be out of reach. That is, of course, barring a mammoth effort over the last 5 games of the year. In the footy world, everyone is talking about the only particularly interesting game to happen on the weekend. West … Continue reading Tipping/Ratings: After Finals Week 1, 2017
We have some very interesting games coming up this weekend. Adelaide are predicted to take their match over GWS quite comfortably. This, of course, is assuming that the sleeping Giants won't wake up from their slumber. They clearly have the most talented best 22 in the AFL at the moment, they're just not playing to … Continue reading Tipping: Before Finals Week 1, 2017
