Footy tipping season is about to kick off in earnest again as a mortgage manager urges brokers to "put their money where their mouth is".
Better Mortgage Management
will launch its 2013 tipping competition for brokers on Thursday, and managing director Murray Cowan said $2,000 in cash and prizes are up for grabs.
Cowan said the competition attracted more than 200 brokers last season, and that he expects double that to get involved this season.
Cowan was a former lower grade player with the Western Suburbs Magpies, and said brokers are often keen to brag to him about their tipping prowess.
“In the past I’ve had many brokers who know about my background who have been quick to tell me how great a tipster they are, so now’s their chance to put their money where their mouth is,” he said.
The top prize in this year's competition is $1,000, and Cowan said brokers who want to get involved can visit the NRL website and register in the tipping section with the code 983619.
