Could the sleepy town of Eyre in SA be the centre of the Footy Tipping universe?
Hotel Eyre had the only person in the AFL tipping comp to tip all 9 winners. Deidre Johnson managed to pick the round and be the sole tipper to receive a $100 prize. A fellow tipper at the hotel, Elizabeth Bailey also pockets $100 this week by tipping the round in the NRL.
Something in the water or something in the air? Whatever it is, Hotel Eyre is on the money early on in 2014.
Interesting stat shows that 9 of the 16 pick the round winners thus far have been female. Considering that Female tippers only make up approximately 35% of all Sportspick entrants, could this be conclusive proof that the girls know more about footy than the blokes. The jury is out on this one. But food for thought.
