    Is this an anomaly or does this happen with regularity? I've noticed that this week NO is above CAR in team efficiencies yet CAR have a greater probability of winning their game.

    Ed-I have CAR ranked #5 and NO ranked #9. Plus, NO's opponent is CHI, who is rated slightly higher than CAR's opponent DEN. Additionally, CAR is home and NO is away this week.

    You are dealing with an idiot. I 'd meant to type in CHI rather than CAR. You have NO at number 9 and CHI at number 16 in team efficiencies. The probability of CHI winning is slightly higher than that of NO. I thought that home field advantage was not considered in the model.
    This may have happened before but I've only just now noticed it.
