Best Answer

To determine how many games the second place team is behind the first place team, find the difference in wins of the two teams, the difference of the number of losses of the two teams, add those two numbers together and then divide by two. Example A: The first place team's Won/Loss record is 40-20 and the second place team's record is 38-22. (40 - 38) + (22 - 20) / 2 is the same as (2 + 2) / 2 which equal 2. The second place team is 2 games behind the first place team. Example B: The first place team's Won/Loss record is 40-20 and the second place team's record is 37-22. (40 - 37) + (22 - 20) / 2 is the same as (3 + 2) / 2 which equal 2.5. The second place team is 2 and a halfgames behind the first place team.
