How often does the spread come into play?
You know the old saying, "The spread only comes into play 20% of the time, usually the winner of the game covers their side." So, if the Favorite wins, they usually cover. When the Underdog wins, they cover by default.
So my question is: "What are the percentages by Spread?"
Spread PK-2.5 points
Spreak 3.0-6.5 points
Spread 7.0-9.5 points
Spread 10.0-12.5 points
My initial thought is that the closer to (0) the spread is the more likely the winner just decides the Cover or not... with larger spreads then the spread is much more in question.
Can you run this through a database?
