Hello,

can someone tell me how and where the Total Points column is calculated and what does it reference to?

Thx for the help.

Season Totals

The following table shows total home and away points going back to 1983. The right column shows the average home team win. The lower right cell shows that home teams score 2.94 more points, on average.

The columns appear to be, in order:
Year
Total points scored by visiting teams
Total points scored by home teams
Total games played that season (I think - I can't figure out why 2004 has "only" 265 games listed)
Average number of points scored per game by both teams combined (add columns 2 and 3, then divide by column 4)
Average difference per game between home and visiting teams

Hello, DonGuy

Thanks, now I assume that includes all of the regular season games and all of the Post Season games combined, is this correct?

Thanks for your time and help.
