One of Austrlia’s largest sports betting sites Sportingbet has announced they will be running another Last Man Standing competition in 2012.
The 2012 version of the 2012 Last Man Standing competition will have $50,000 AUD in cash and prizes. This competition has really started to take off, with the popularity growing year after year. On face value it seems surprisingly easy to play, and it is possible for anyone to have a good chance. I’m not sure if there is a strategy used by the best players, or if it is based on pure luck. I know in my tipping competition last year I was knocked out in the third round.
If you haven’t already heard of the Last Man Standing competition it is a very simple concept. All you have to do is choose 1 NRL team each week who you think will win. If that team wins, then you progress to the next week. If the team that you selected loses, then you are eliminated with immediate effect.
The average punter will think this is quite easy, all you have to do is choose the heavy favourite each week, or the team at the shortest odds. That was the downfall of me in 2011, and I can tell you plenty of others were eliminated in the same way.
Each week you will have to do your own form analysis, using the statistics, historial data and latest information we will have here during the 2012 season. We’ll also be covering every match with our own tips, picks, predictions, form, analysis and latest odds.
The competition has free entry, as long as you have an account with the bookie. If nothing else, it gives you something else to have a crack at each week, with the potential of winning big at the end of the NRL season.
