Tipping: Lucky 7

The continuing story that is the surprise hit of the FootyMaths blog... now in its seventh week!

In this edition:
The FootyMaths supercomputer again took on 6 twitter accounts/people in what we determined to be a weekend of close matches.
The seventh edition, with 7 players, and the winner picked...

Anyway... this week it was;

 - @TheHolyBoot, @SidebySidePies, @davpope, @A_OKeefe, @MarkDuffett (using a mathematical model), and @Wal13Freo.

With such a spread of players, and what we thought a difficult weekend of matches, it is no surprise that this weeks tipping challenge created some interesting results.

And perhaps the most interesting result was the abject failure of our computer to get more than half right. 

The order of the tippers this week:

    GOLD:       John (@TheHolyBoot) , with 7 correct, (winner on countback on the Crows margin)
   SILVER:      Wal (@Wal13Freo), also with 7 correct,
   BRONZE:      Mark (@MarkDuffett) sneaks in for a podium with 6 correct and tipping closest to the margin.

Unplaced (in order) would then be:
4th: @DavPope, also with 6 correct
5th: @SidebySidePies, with 5 correct and,
6th: @AFLFootyMaths, with 4 correct, separated by difference from the margin from
7th: @A_OKeefe.

And once again: in our defence, if you were to review the proposed rankings page for next year, we would have collected 6 tips correct this week. Still not enough for the win, but a better haul none the less.
