  • Last Updated: January 24 2014, 9:21 GMT

It's tight at the top in the Sportinglife Monthly Tipsters Competition for January.

Jonsmith53 has tipped eight winners and boasts an impressive 30% strike-rate to deservedly sit at the top of the Sporting Life Monthly Tipsters Competition for January.

Swingingjuicy has made some inroads on the leader in the past week and will try to pile the pressure in the final seven days of the month. Mustangsally sits in third spot while the consistent Lousytips, who has tipped 12 winners from 25 selections, sits in fourth and will be trying to keep that fine form up for the rest of the month.

Bukemdanno, Teapot7, Aco, Jim-Carney, The Maiden Man and Acoldwell are all still well in contention for the top prize this month of a £100 Sky Bet prize and they will be going all out to find a few more winners and close in on the leader.

Neighidea, Ajcsl123, Edwinkett, Foogiebear, Dennis, Laska Floko have all tasted success in the Daily Game over the past week, landing the Daily Sky Bet Free Bet prize and Wednesday's winner, Neighidea, deserves a special mention for having a 50% strike-rate which made a whopping profit of 770pts.

Other tipsters who have been in flying form of late include Princessjules and Cmrules both have been banging in the winners this week and will be well worth following this coming weekend as they try their luck in the Streak 5 Game.
