Has anyone derived something similar? please comment.To go a bit further, if we let say trust accuscore projections ( i do not), using the above formula win can estimate what the best odds would be for let say betting on DET or LA in today's NHL game.DET is 45% (which translates to 2,14 decimal odds, while pinnacle gives 2,16) and LA is 55% (which translates to 1,81 decimal odds, while pinnacle gives only 1,77).
