Who can figure this one out??? The topic of discussion amongst my friends and I: What is the probability of the sum of a football game landing on odd versus even. My friends say that it is a simple 50/50 coin toss. My rebuttal is that while in football the only integers that can be achieved by one score are: 2 3 6 7 or 8 thus limiting the possibility of a 50/50 ratio. 2 = safety 3 = field goal 6 = touchdown w/ missed PAT, or missed 2pt. conversion 7 = touchdown w/ made PAT 8 = touchdown w/ made 2pt. conversion My Hypothesis: Since safeties are rarely scored in a football game, I believe that even has the advantage versus odd. Now I have read some responses of unrelated topics, and there seems to be a high number of intelligent people subscribed to this forum. Everyone likes to 1-up the next guy, which is good thus creating a large field of answers. Please approach this question with an open mind, and really give it some thought as I have not come to a conclusion on my own.
