Inside the (...) above is each system's won/loss record: first "straight up", and then against the spread (when disagreeing with the favorite listed by "the bookies"). The 3rd number listed is for ties: the number of games that the model thinks is dead even. The favorites won 9 and lost 6 (with one tie game), and 7 of the 16 favorites covered the spread in 1985.
