Welcome to the Spec.com.au Local & AFL Football Tipping Competition for 2016.
Once again, you could be the top weekly tipster, winning the weekly prize of $100 cash.
The tipping competition is once again bigger and better than ever in 2016 with new features and once again a whopping $5300 cash up for grabs.
There's a major prize of $1000 to the overall Tipping champion; and $200 prizes to the next 10 best tipsters at the completion of the final week/round.
Each week an AFL game will be a "margin game" where tipsters must pick the winning team and the winning margin. This margin will help determine the weekly tipster winner and the competition winners at the end of the season.
And... if you think you won't have a chance at winning against avid fans and football followers, think again...
We've got features providing the historical scores in local leagues giving you the insight to make a well informed selection and an edge over others.
