The table lists team ranked by points and shows, for each team:
Below is a view of some of the first columns of the run-in analysis table, including average Points Per Game values for each team's opponents.
Points Per Game (PPG)
That value is calculated based on the number of points for each team, divided by the number of matches played by the team.
Average PPG of played opponents
Average value calculated based on the away PPG values of each opponent played by the team at home, and on home PPG values of each opponent played by the team in away matches.
Average PPG of remaining opponents
As with the played opponents, the average value is calculated based on the away PPG values of each future opponent to be played by the team at home, and on home PPG values of each future opponent to be played by the team in away matches.
Difference between both average PPG values
That value is calculated for each team, based on the difference between the "Average PPG of played opponents" value and the "Average PPG of remaining opponents" value. The Difference column will show a value that can be positive, neutral or negative. A positive Difference value means that the team's upcoming matches are featuring oppositions that have a lower combined PPG than that of the oppositions already played.
Average PPG of next 4 opponents
Average value calculated based on PPG value regarding the next 4 opponents to be played by each team. Again, those calculations take into account the away PPG values of each future opponent to be played by the team at home, and the home PPG values of each future opponent to be played by the team in away matches.
Let's assume that a team has 4 matches left to play in the regular season:
The value calculated for the remaining opponents' PPG in that example will be the average of the away PPG of Opponent A, the home PPG of Opponent B, the away PPG of Opponent C, and the home PPG of Opponent D.
Such an approach may look quite straightforward on paper however it also comes with its caveats and weaknesses. For example, the closest we are to the beginning of the season,
the less data we have to calculate the Points Per Game recorded for each opponent.
