As the AFL home-and-away season draws to a close, so too does WA's Richest Footy Tipping competition, presented by Player and The West Australian.
More than 50,000 tipsters have been competing for the grand prize of $50,000 - or $100,000 if they get The West Australian delivered at home.
Heading into the final round this weekend, Paul Luca of Marangaroo is the outright leader on 151 points, followed by two tipsters both on 150. Ten tipsters tied on 149 points are also still in the running for the prize money.
Eddie Johnson, from Hamersley, who is fourth overall based on his cumulative margin, said he has been involved in the tipping competition for quite a few years now through his son's workplace.
Mr Johnson said he entered the competition for a bit of fun and it was just "pure luck" he had done so well. However, the West Coast Eagles supporter said one particular strategy has helped him this season. "I stopped picking the Eagles every game," he said.
Aidan Gregan, from Victoria Park, is also doing well, currently in third place with 150 points.
The 24-year-old said he was worried about half the games going into the final round and may go for a few rough tips to try to sneak into first place. "There's no prize for third," he said.
Tipsters should note that despite Essendon not being eligible to play in this year's finals, they are still required to pick a winner for Essendon's game against Richmond at the MCG tomorrow.
Winners of the competition will be announced in The West next week.
