Fortunately/Unfortunately, if you forget to input a lineup, a lineup will be input for you. Confused

You will be given the home team and get credit accordingly. Neutral

This week's reduced schedule had 9 equal winners (or 7 if you take away the Luuuc and Rebkell Polls entries)
No surprise that 3 of those 7 were people who correctly picked the Sky to beat Seattle.
Interesting that 27% of people in the Rebkell polls had Sky beating Sparks, but 0% of people were brave enough to tip them. It's the only game all season that nobody has correctly tipped.

Calbearman76 joins PUmatty at the top of the overall standings.

As a point of reference, there have been 122 games played so far out of a total of 204 in the regular season (? Does the competition go through the playoffs?). So the leaders are at 69%. To reach 70% for the regular season, someone would have to get to 143.

No, it is regular season only.
(the reason being that the software doesn't make it easy to make schedule changes/additions)

First game of this round is an afternoon one so get your tips in early!!

Regarding the Sun @ Mystics game that was postponed, if you want to change your tip for that game then you can do so up until the new listed tip-off time of the game by either posting here, or PM'ing me.
(No need to do anything if you're happy to keep your existing selection)

Lynxmania!! A perfect 17 - the highest weekly score of the season.
(the pressure will be on to correctly tip the Sun @ Mystics replay to make it a perfect 18/18 )

Also great tipping from adamj95, Muneravenmn & pilight, who all went 16/17.

Calbearman76 maintains the slimmest of overall leads, with adamj95 & PUmatty just 1 game back.

I was 2 for 3 today. Missed on the Lynx. But this week has been craptastic for me.

Actually, a number of people forgot to input a lineup, so a lineup will be input on their behalf, giving them all the home teams as picks.

And all the home teams won today.. Exclamation
    PHO@WAS
    LA@DAL
    MIN@IND

Sorry. I was wrong om three counts. First I didn't consider the home team picks default. Second, I forgot that Washington- Phoenix was Sunday. And Third I missed your pick, justintyme. But otherwise I stand by my statement.

Mysticsfan12 hasn't entered tips for a long time, and of course my picks are the home team for every game. Our overall standings reflect the effectiveness of that tactic over the longer term Razz
Muneravenmn on the other hand, lucked into a very good week to not enter tips, and actually takes the overall lead as a result of 11/12 home teams winning.

The true best tipsters of the week were bcdawg04 & threadkiller1201. 8/12 is a good return in a week where 6 was the most common result, followed by 4.

Equal winners of round 14 were Chloe1, LadyLauren and VentureOutNLive, with 9/12 games correctly tipped.

Calbearman76 joins Muneravenmn in equal 1st place overall.

Bah. I must not have hit "submit" when I put in my tips yesterday. And of course I can't get lucky like some people here and have it work to my benefit... Wink

VentureOutNLive is on a roll lately. A perfect 13/13 this week!

Muneravenmn has claimed the overall #1 spot.

Congrats to
AdmiralNeeda, Michelle89 and myrtle for tipping 12/14 this past week and clawing 2 points closer to the overall leader, Muneravenmn.

---

Important Reminder:
You will need to click back onto Round 12 to tip the Sun @ Mystics game that was rescheduled for tomorrow night.
Best of luck especially to Lynxmania, who would score a perfect 18/18 for round 12 with a correct tip!

More success for Lynxmania, with a score of 12/13 to win the final round.

But the overall winner and official best tipster at Reb's is MuneravenMN, with a score of 145. Congrats! Very Happy
2nd place was Calbearman76, with 142.
Equal 3rd were PUmatty & Chloe1, with 140.

Rebkell Polls ended up with a very solid 138. Good for equal 6th.
