IT WAS carnage on Day 2 of the “12 Plays Days of Christmas” and it's just as well I decided to introduce a ‘Second Chance' card to the competition otherwise the vast majority would be out after just the second day.
Day 3's fixtures won't be any easier with the unpredictable Europa League taking centre stage, but first a summary of Day 2;
Day 2 Round-Up
A lot of members got sucked in by the shortest priced team on Tuesday but 1-3 shots Roma couldn't get the better of BATE and it's left many of you in the last chance saloon already.
Eleven new members joined the competition on Day 2 – they were entitled to do so by using their ‘Second Chance' card, effectively meaning they picked a loser on Day 1. Of the eleven, only four progress to Day 3.
A massive 37 members didn't play on Day 2. Those who had a loser on Day 1 are out of the competition, however those that had a winner on Day 1 can rejoin the competition today, using their ‘Second Chance' card.
An unbelievable total of 127 backed a loser and for 20 of those the competition is over since they've now picked two losers.
So in summary just 26 members have a perfect 2/2 and still have their ‘Second Chance' card to play whilst 132 have either already played their ‘Second Chance' card or will need to play it to take part today.
Day 2 Daily Prize
BATE's draw in Rome was best priced at 4-1 but unsurprisingly no-one opted for that out come. Well done to those that picked a draw between Leverkusen and Barca though, as that was the next best result in terms of odds. @rockboy has been chosen at random as the winner of the £10 free bet at Skybet.
