Live Tournament Win Probability

Don't be caught watching the games on your computer at work. Watch the WP graphs instead. You're supposed to be looking at things like graphs anyway!

    What's with the straight lines in graphs? In the Temple/Arizona graph, there looked to be an exact linear pattern over the course of about 15 minutes (halftime to five minutes left).

    My program hung and I wasn't around to notice it or fix it. Should be good now. Sorry.

    great info brian...i like how you start out each game at 50 instead of say 65 if a home team is favored by 5 points...

    1. any chance you can do the remaining nit games?
    2. i know you menioned nba as well...after the ncaa tourney if it is not much trouble it would be nice to have these...

    Actually, there's no adjustment for team strength. Everything is generic. The games start at 50 because in the overwhelming number of cases, the games are played at neutral sites.

    I can do NIT games, but I'm not committing to NBA yet. I'd like to get back into football stuff. We're coming up on the draft.
