Question

An analysis of the scores of professional football games has led some researchers to conclude that a team that is favored by x points will outscore its opponent by a random number of points that is approximately normally distributed with mean x and standard deviation 14. Thus, for instance, the difference in the points scored by a team that is favored by 5 points and its opponent will be a normal random variable with mean 5 and standard deviation 14. Assuming that this theory is correct, determine the probability that (a) A team that is favored by 7 points wins the game. (b) A team that is a 4-point underdog wins the game. (c) A team that is a 14-point favorite loses the game. Oct 17 2014 12:29 PM
