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 15 and lost 13, and 13 of the 28 favorites covered the spread in 2002.
