Head to Head and Head to Group

This article explains how the Head-to-Group and Head-to-Head standings sort metrics work.

Head to Group (HTG) Calculation Steps

  1. Tied teams are grouped together. 
  2. Every team in the tied group must have at least one game played against a team in the tied group for HTG to be considered.
  3. Teams are compared to each other based on win %. Their win % record only considers games where home and away are both members of the tied team group.
  4. Teams are then ranked based on this calculated win %.
  5. If any teams are tied in HTG win % then the next standings sort metric will be used.

Head to Head (HTH) Calculation Steps

  1. Tied teams are grouped together. 
  2. Every team in the tied group must have at least one game played against a team in the tied group for HTH to be considered.
  3. If one team has beaten all other teams in the tied group (without losing) then they will be considered the winner and ranked 1st.
  4. If a group winner is determined and the tied group has 3 or more teams then the winner will be excluded and step 3 will be repeated with remaining teams.
  5. If no winner can be determined from step 3 then the next standings sort metric will be used.
