Thanks. It's the parenthesis, which is messing it up. Working on it.

 

ETA: Fixed! Appreciate it. That's the type of feedback/debugging I need.

 

I also improved the size scaling, so it should show up better on tablets and mobile devices.

Cathedral is a 6 point favorite over Bishop Chatard according to this predictor.

 

At the end of last season, Gibson Southern was still the favorite over Heritage Hills despite Heritage Hills beating Gibson Southern twice at Gibson Southern.

 

Last season, Jeff Sagarin tinkered with his HS football ratings, adding a "Golden Mean" component. I thought that put a lot of emphasis on margin-of-victory. This season, he has added a "Recent" component, which he says will really give greater weight to recent victories -- especially late in the season.

 

He and John Harrell provide an invaluable service for Indiana sports fans. We are lucky to have them doing all this pro bono! Sagarin's ratings are used as a component to determine the college football playoffs and previously the BCS. I believe he has a Master's degree from MIT and is a professor at IU, so he must know what he's doing!

I understand why it does this and doubt that you will want to do anything differently for it, but this looks funny with the scientific notation. It's essentially saying that there is no statistical advantage to either team in this match up, so hopefully if we end up playing HH in sectional it will be at Brownstown and the 0.78 point homefield advantage works out for us lol
 

Brownstown (65.13) is a 1.1102230246252E-15-point favorite (0.78-point homefield advantage) against Heritage Hills (64.35)

Yeah, I think php defaults to float variables. I'll fix it so it rounds to the tenths digit.... Or maybe even whole numbers?

 

ETA: Is this better?

"Heritage Hills (64.35) against Brownstown (65.12) is a draw (0.78-point homefield advantage)"

"Woodlan (66.58) is a 0.5-point favorite (0-point homefield advantage) against New Prairie (66.11)"

"Adams Central (59.95) is a 1-point favorite (0.78-point homefield advantage) against Adams Central (59.95)"

 

*** I actually changed it so it will round to the nearest half point ***

Wow, check out the Ridge playing in the Jungle. Edge to Patriots by 1/2 pt with the home field advantage.

Looks like another lookup issue.  Ran Western against Tipton and got this:

 

Western (61.62) is a 22-point favorite (0.78-point home-field advantage) against Tipton (38.98) 

Western's predictor is around 35.xx and Tipton's is 38.xx.  Tipton should be getting the nod.  In doing a little more research, it looks like the tool is picking up Western Boone's predictor to use in the matchup.

Fixed. Thanks!

Dang, LCC a 28 pt favorite against Rensselaer with home field on.

 

I don't think that one is a bug in the code.  :)
