AFL Competition Rules
Punters! Mr Pineapple and his team at Pineapple Punters, have come up with a brand new Tipping competition!
Instead of your usual head to head tipping competition, we are really separating the Punters who have done their homework from the rest.
Our AFL Tippers & Cappers competition sets a handicap line to each match. If you want to back the favourite you’re going to have to give up some points and beat the line.
The line set is to bring the match back to even money by by adding or subtracting points from a teams final score. You will have to do your research on each team to have the best chance of being on the winning side of the line.
Predicting the matches
Predict the winners in each round of the competition. You have until 15 minutes before the start of a match to add or change your prediction.
The handicap or line set works by adding or subtracting the number from the teams final score. For example if the match was
HAWTHORN -40 v CARLTON + 40 RESULT HAW 100 def CAR 80 HAW win by 20 CARLTON +40 wins
At the completion of a round, the next round will become available for registration the following day.
The bonus questions
Each round we will assign a tie break question. This will be an exact points margin on a chosen match each round. This is used in the case of a tie for 1st place. The Punter who was closest to the points margin will win.
In a normal round there will be 9 AFL matches to tip & cap. Your score will be given out of 9. In the event of a tie for 1st the points margin tie breaker will decide the winner. If this is still a tie the punters will share the prize equally.
Each match is assigned a handicap by Mr Pineapple a week before the match is due to begin. The handicap will be added/deducted from the final points score before calculating the winners for each round.
If the match has a handicap it will be notified by a value added/subtracted for the team names in each match.
Each round the prize pool is paid out to the 1st place winner. The prize winner will be notified by email they have won and can then claim their prize.
