    Luckily for you, I won’t count them. You will get the lowest score of all other tipsters which hopefully will be higher than zero!

    VIXENS – 0 (Can I do that?)

    Sorry, I didn’t see this. No you can’t really do that. Why would you want to? If it’s a draw, you don’t get any points because you didn’t pick a draw. And if Vixens win, you can’t get the margin right.

    My thought process was that; even if I believe that it will be a draw, it is MUCH more likely that either Swifts or Vixens win. So I tipped Vixens, but if it was a draw I would get an extra point for the margin. I don’t know if that makes sense but it did in my head. I tend to do that sometimes in other tipping comps, and it has worked out a few times.

    I get your reasoning. But no, that’s not how it works here.

    The margin only comes into play if you pick the correct winner/result. For example, we had a few people who tipped Vixens by 6. They don’t get any points for picking that the margin would be 6 goals. You have to pick the correct team first, then you go to the margin.

    So, the only way you can pick a margin of 0 is by picking a draw. If you pick Vixens to win, you have to pick a margin of 1 or more. In this instance, had Vixens won, you would have got 2 points for the correct result, but you would have been out of the running to get any points for the margin.

    Okay, yeah that makes sense. Oh well, I’m not doing very well anyways so it didn’t really matter.
