How do private competitions work?

  • Tips Reminder: This email is sent each Friday (earlier if the match is prior to a Friday) to remind you to submit your tips.
  • Tips Results: This email confirms how many tips you successfully selected for the previous round.

How is the Margin calculated?

  • To make it even more competitive the way margin is calculated has been changed.
  • "Margin Difference" means the number of points between the margin entered by the Registered Participant for the team they tip to win for a Margin Match and the actual margin for the match. If the Registered Participant has correctly tipped the winning team for the Margin Match, the Margin Difference will equal the difference between the actual margin and the margin entered by the Registered Participant.
  • If the Registered Participant has incorrectly tipped the winning team for the Margin Match, the Margin Difference will equal the total of the actual winning margin plus the margin entered by the Registered Participant.
  • For example: If Team A defeats Team B by 10 points, and you have selected Team A to win by 20 points, your Margin Difference for that Round is 10; and if you have selected Team B to win by 20 points, your Margin Difference for that Round is 30.
