    Wondering if someone has a database and can look that up.

    My wild guess says 38 points wins 85 - 90% of the time.

    I'll go 90-95. Unless you're pass happy, you are keeping the ball away from the other team too.

    2005: 29-0 (1.000)
    2004: 30-3 (.909)
    2003: 36-2 (.947)
    2002: 29-3 (.906)
    2001: 28-2 (.933)
    2000: 37-0 (1.000)
    1999: 30-1 (.968)
    1998: 30-1 (.968)
    1997: 27-2 (.931)

    TOTAL: 310-17 (.948)

    Staggeringly, a team that scores 38 points wins 100% of the time when the opposing team scores 14 or fewer.

    Does it make sense to include "or more"? I know that dramatically reduces the sample size but that would probably be more applicable than including games where a team scored 40+.

    Thanks for looking that up and calculating it in any case.

    I say lets keep scoring 38 points and are chances to win will be better than 95%. Sounds easy right? well actually yes when you have Tom throwing to Moss.
