Also known as Super Bowl Sunday, it is a day on which maximum food is consumed, after Thanksgiving!

There are a total of 32 NFL teams, which have been divided into various zones of the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). Each zone has four teams, resulting in 16 teams under the AFC, and 16 under the NFC. Every year, the Super Bowl (the NFL championship game) is what excites football fans the most, with everyone looking forward to spending time together and watching the big game over some delicious food. The AFC and NFC have four zones each-North, South, East, and West. As such, the total number of NFL teams is 32. Usually, you will always find a zone-wise distribution of these teams. As the biggest sports league that American football has ever seen, the craze about the NFL, its players, and the yearly Super Bowl only gets greater and wider. It is now one of the richest sporting leagues in the world. A very interesting fact is that, over 8 million pounds of guacamole is consumed on Super Bowl Sunday, and the sales of antacids increase drastically the next day! Such is the impact of the NFL, which seems to be only getting bigger with every passing year.

Formerly known as the American Professional Football Association, and started in the year 1920, the group soon adapted itself to the National Football League in the year 1922. Louis Rams

How To Calculate Earned Run Average

Also, if there is an error and runner(s) score, the number of Earned Runs should only be the number of runs that would have scored had the fielding been made cleanly.

The formula:

With a zero in the denominator, this result is undefined since a number can NEVER be divided by zero. Even this poor win/loss record did not stop the Ryan Express from finishing in the Top 5 voting for the Cy Young Award that year. It doesn’t matter how many innings pitched because if he never gave up a single earned run the numerator will always be zero and zero divided by ANY number is zero.

Then using our formula:

Many people get confused by a pitcher having allowed Earned Runs but without retiring a batter. Let us use a real example and view Nolan Ryan’s stats for the 1987 season:

(0 ER x 9) / IP = 0.00.

Ryan actually led the league in ERA in 1987 with 2.76. This shows why ERA can help provide an explanation for a seemingly dismal season and to allow for better decision making.

If a runner pitches a shutout for a game or season, it is easy to see that his ERA is 0.00.

If the Earned Runs are not given to you, or you are tallying for a game then just remember, the pitcher responsible for placing the runner on base gets saddled with the Earned Run if that baserunner scores – even if the responsible pitcher is no longer in the game. He also led the majors with 270Ks that year, but finished with an 8 –16 Record! The poor hitting Houston Astros gave his efforts little support. This will ensure an accurate calculation. His ERA?

(3 ERs x 9) / 0 IP = undefined

Baseball more than any other sport is a game of numbers. For example, in his debut Wild Thing allows 3 runs on 6 walks and fails to retire a single batter before being yanked by his angry manager and shoved on a bus back to the bush leagues. These statistics allow fans to make comparisons amongst players and even allows for comparisons between current players and all-time greats. His ERA shows just how good he was, but received little help. In this case, Ryan pitched 211 complete innings and 2 outs which is 2/3 inning or .667 making his actual innings pitched 211.667. Given a pitcher’s earned runs, you multiply by 9 and then divide by the total number of innings pitched. The method of how to calculate earned run average is an easy formula that will help your decision making in fantasy baseball leagues drafts, sports betting or acting as statistician for your neighborhood little league team.

(65 x 9) / 211.667 = 2.763 or 2.76

since ERA is always shown as rounded to two decimal places.

**It is common to represent partial innings as .1 or .2 to symbolize the number of outs, but when the math is performed these should be converted to proper decimals. Just as a batting average is a great measure of hitter effectiveness, a pitcher’s earned run average (ERA) is a great gauge of a pitcher’s likelihood of success against an opposing team. So grab your calculator and get to calculating! The baseball cards are on the shelf and the season is about to begin!

(Earned Runs x 9) / Innings Pitched

. However, from calculus days, this result as the denominator gets closer and closer to zero is infinity and normally the pitcher’s ERA will be represented by the infinity symbol (∞).

Earned Runs = 65

This simple formula does it all. Likewise, as another example, 15.1 innings would be 15.333 innings when properly factored.

Once you master earned run average, you can tackle hitting stats like calculating batting average and calculating slugging percentage, too

So your wager is on horses 6, 5, 7 & 8 (all in 4 consecutive races)

Exacta: In the exacta, you can pick the horses that will finish first and second in exact order. The Odds of the quinella are much higher than a direct win, so more money will be won if the quinella comes through.. If one horse win and the other does not, you will lose your bet, both horses must win for you to see dividends.

Pick Four: Are you feeling a bit more lucky? well pick four is for you, you are wagering that your choice of 4 horses will win in FOUR consecutive Races. As the odds for winning increases so does the payout.

Double Event: This waging is when you select the two winners from two consecutive races. These bets are not available in all races as many factors depict if a customer can wager on a high 5 race such as the amount of horses in the race. Betting beg on a pick 9 can give you millions in winnings.

Quinella: The Quinella is a term given to a bet that picks the two horses which will come first and second no matter the order. A trifecta is where three horses are placed in the exacta order of finishing 1, 2, and 3. Placing a $100 dollar bet on a good trifecta will give you a broad nice smile on you face when collecting your winnings.

Pick Six: No, this is not the lotto, you must be very lucky to burst this bubble, you are wagering that your choice of 6 horses will win their respective Races. So if you are wagering on race 1 and race 2, you must bet on the horse that will win in race 1 and the horse that will win in race 2. So if you bet that horses number 6 and 7 will come first or second, doesn’t matter which one comes first or second. All horse tracks offer exacta betting on most races. So if you wager on horses 6 and 7 in an exacta or sometimes called a perfecta, you must specifically state which horse you bet will come first and which horse will come second.

Trifecta:If you are really lucky or really know your horses, you can wager on what is called a trifecta. Races with 7 or less horses are usually excluded from High 5 or another term pick 5 wagering.

Pick 9: Same as the Pick six, the only difference is that the odds are stacked much more higher and so is the payout. The odds of picking the six winners in six races are high and so are the payoffs.

High Five: You are wagering that your choice of 5 horses will finish 1st through 5th places in a single race
