The Fine Art Of Sport Statistics

 

Games Behind (GB)

Statistics can be useful in calculating the number of games a team is behind the first place team.  Ties are not included in the calculation of Games Behind.

The Games Behind is calculated as follows:

GB = ((games won by the 1st place team minus games won by any other team) plus (games lost by any other team minus games lost by the 1st place team)) divided by2

Examples:

If the Reds have won 15 games and lost 4 games and the Blues have won 9 games and lost 10 games we would have:
        GB = (15-9)+(10-4)/2 = 6 games behind
        The Blues are 6 games behind the Reds.

If the two teams involved do not have the same number of games played, the GB would not be a whole number, example:

If the Reds have won 15 games and lost 4 games (total of games played 19) and the Browns have won 8 games and lost 10 games lost (total of games played 18) we would have:
        GB = (15-8)+(10-4)/2 = 6.5 games behind

        Then the Browns are 6.5 games behind the Reds.

 

 

Standings / Average / Win Average / Pct

The standings are calculated to the nearest thousandth to determine the Win Average (AVE) or winning percentage.  Each Tie a team has counts as a .5 win.


AVE = Total of wins / Total of games played

Example: A team that has won 15 games out of 23 games has a winning percentage of .662 (15 divided by 23).

 

 

Seedings

Seedings are based on Standings after the last regular season game has been played.

 

Tie breakers are decided by:

1. Head to Head results.  The results of the two (or three) teams are reviewed and the team with the best record will be placed in the better seed position.

2. If the Head to Head results are the same or not enough games have been played against each other: Compare Runs Given Up ("Runs Against").  The lower the points the better, so the team with the lower runs given up will be placed in the better seed position.

3. If there is not a clear winner with Runs Given Up: Head to Head with the First Seed team.  The results of each of the tied teams against the first seed are reviewed and the team with the best record will be placed in the better seed position.  If this is the same, move to Second seed, Third, until one of the teams wins.
