For example, if the Knicks were 10-point favorites over the Cavaliers and ended up winning by 20, then the ATS Margin would be 10. If the Knicks had won by 5 points, on the other hand, the ATS margin would be -5. The results are color coded to judge the severity of the final result versus the spread.
