Tuesday night I happened to notice that out of the 8 games, 7 of them were NO score 1st 10 minutes. I was curious to see what the rest of this year was like so I compiled some stats. Turns out that Tuesday was nowhere close to the norm.
NO score: 61 times (41.22%)
YES score: 87 times (58.78%)
(these #'s are pending a double check)
This includes yesterday's games where it continued to follow this year's trend...6 out of 10 were YES score first 10 min.
I'm going to look back at previous years & see what happened there as well.
