I was looking for some statistics for research reasons on past game history and stumbled upon "Predicted Score". Then, I decided to try to figure out how this statistic is being calculated and could not find any search for the answer, and it brought me here.
In this case: "Predicted Score (65.2 - 78.4)" where the 65.2 is the current spread favorite at -1.5.
So my questions are:
- How is this number being calculated? A computer using stats, experts, ratio of bets placed?
- Would that mean the favorite is actually a 13.2 point underdog?
