"Otherwise its another week of expected results being reasonably predictable.So if you didn't collect 9 this week, then it should have been an 8. Anything else is poor tipping.
The form data also doesn't show much likelyhood of upsets either."
So no bragging here - it was an easy week.
|PREDICTED RESULT||ACTUAL RESULT||RATINGS ADJUSTMENTS|
|North Melbourne||by||36||pts||North Melbourne||by||37||pts||North Melbourne||+9||St Kilda||-1|

On second thoughts... a short brag.
Three games tipped close to the actual margin (16pts, 8 pts and 1 pt), plus an exact on Hawthorn over Geelong by 36 pts.
Donations and congratulations welcome, form an orderly queue to the right.
And also worth noting is this week registered four more 60+ point margins... 2015 will be a record, almost certain.
Over to the table, we have the above big margins impacting the table with big shifts.
Fremantle lose but move up may seem odd, but the Swans just didn't hit Collingwood hard enough. Therefore they are penalised and slip a spot.
Big moves by Adelaide and Western Bulldogs on the back of big wins. The Dogs go +47 to be within touching distance of the best 8.
The counter point to the Adelaide's big win is that Essendon are now clearly adrift, with the Saints, Suns, Dees etc. Essendon are now closer to the lowest ranked Lions (95 pts) than their nearest rival above them (GWS 143 pts).
