  1. I was just wondering what the weight in strength of schedule you use is?
    For example, beating a .400 team by 10 is equivalent to beating a .600 team by X?

  2. Wayne,
    would it make sense to have 3 rankings for each team – home, away, and total? Or instead to apply home advantage for each team and away disadvantage score (I presume home court for Denver has more weight than Boston, and similar some teams just hardly cope with road (Utah recent years).

  3. For most teams individualized home court does not work well but for denver it is probably worth it. I would have to use years of data to validate it

  4. bASICALLY beating a 10 point better than average team by 3 is like beating an average team by 13. That is how schedule strength factors in. See Mathletics book
