Some solid tipping. There were only 2 complete disasters, and they were fairly difficult to predict. A changing of the guard occurred this week, with Geelong kicked out of 1st for the first time this year. This is also, by far, the lowest rated 1st place team this year. This indicates the competition is very … Continue reading Tipping: After Round 20, 2019
No huge blockbusters this week, but there are some close games lined up that could determine a lot about how the ladder looks in a month's time. Adelaide vs. St Kilda is a big one. Adelaide have their fate in their own hands right now, so they need to convert these matches where they are … Continue reading Tipping: Before Round 20, 2019
I'm leading with my favourite graphic today: placings. Most of the final placing intervals closed by 1, but a few closed by 2. Namely, Essendon and Adelaide. Essendon had [3,10] last week, but are at [4,9] this week. This is due to them playing worse than expected against Gold Coast on the weekend, and their … Continue reading Predictions: After Round 19, 2019
A nice, solid round. In an effort to continue a long-running tradition, my MAE was much higher then it could've been. Jumping to their highest ratings of the season are Brisbane and Carlton. Falling to their lowest are Geelong, Essendon, Collingwood and Melbourne. The matches that generated the most movement were Carlton's upset win over … Continue reading Tipping & Ratings: After Round 19, 2019
If you think about it for 2 milliseconds (and no longer), it's actually fine that I'm posting this halfway through the round. After all, AFLTables only updates after the rounds are over, so that means this update rate is still better than AFLTables' update rate.
It's probably far too late in the season to start posting about these, especially when we already have a pretty distinct combination of 8 teams likely to play finals. Oh well, I'll just smother this post with other tables and graphs to make up for it. Here come the SWARMS. Even with just 5 weeks … Continue reading Predictions: After Round 18, 2019
I've changed how targets work for tipping this week. Now I'm aiming to beat the amount of favourites that win every week. I did this because a target of 70% is seemingly unachievable this year, and I needed to start getting a few 9/9s to hit it before the end of the year. Some years … Continue reading Tipping & Ratings: After Round 18, 2019
