Dustycarpet leads the way

The Sportinglife Tipping Competition for August is almost at an end with a £100 free bet with Sky Bet up for grabs.

There was some super tipping at York last week, where Dan Downtown found 8 winners & posted a profit of 981pts to take top spot in the Overall York Ebor Festival Tipping Competition, over 300pts clear of Tazzz & Dustycarpet who both also ended the Ebor meeting with big profits.

As we enter the final few days of the August Sporting Life Monthly Tipping Game Dustycarpet has pulled further away from the field, leading by almost 400 points from the Fryern, Luckycire (12 winners) and Dan downtown (7 winners) with less than 50pts between the three. Edwinkett, Tomb2010 and Governance are all queuing in behind the top 4 to stake a challenge for the top prize of a £100 Sky Bet Free Bet for topping the August Monthly Game.

Paddysky83 also deserves mention for tipping the most winners of anyone in the top 10, having racked up 16 already this month. If you reckon you’re good enough to take on the top Sporting Life tipsters, then be sure to get involved now by clicking here.

Swingingjuicy, Fleagle2602, Tjaka, Oldgirl, Peter411, Dennis and Garyjc61 have all proved themselves as Top Tipsters this week by taking the £5 Sky Bet Free Bet for topping the Daily Tipping Game. Our Top Tipster to follow this week is Dragon who has managed 6 consecutive days in profit and will be looking to beat a previous best of 11 straights days in profit.
