Generally, most organizations count a tie a one half win and one half loss when computing winning percentage. The National Football League is one of the organizations that does this.

So, should a team in the NFL have a record of 5 wins, 4 losses, and 1 tie (5-4-1), their winning percentage would be .550. This is calculated by taking the number of games (10) and dividing into the number of wins (5.5).

### How do you calculate winning percentage with a tie game?

It depends on the sport and how ties are used. I would use point percentage rather than winning percentage to see which team has a better record. First determine how many points a win is worth and a tie. In NHL hockey, wins are worth 2 and ties are worth 1 point. So for example, a record of 5 wins, 2 losses, 3 ties results in 13 points out of a possible 20 for a .650 point percentage. A team with 5 w, 1 L, 3 t results in 13 points out of possible 18, which is .722 percentage. If you really need to get a winning percentage, try making ties worth 1/2 a win or just drop the ties from the record. So an NFL football team with a record of 8-7-1 is going to have a better winning percentage than an 8-8 team no matter which way you calculate... 8.5/16 or 8/15

### How did the ny giants have the no 4 pick in the 2004 draft?

In the 2003 NFL season, four teams (Chargers, Raiders, Cardinals, Giants) wound up tied for the worst record at 4-12. A tie breaker was needed to determine in which order these teams would draft and the first tie breaker that is used is strength of schedule for the previous season. The team that played the schedule of teams that had the combined lowest winning percentage would select first and the team that played the schedule of teams that had the combined highest winning percentage would select fourth. The Chargers played teams that had a combined record of 106-102 (.510 winning percentage), the Raiders 109-99 (.524 winning percentage), the Cardinals 113-95 (.543 winning percentage), and the Giants 115-93 (.553 winning percentage). Since the combined winning percentage of teams the Giants played was the highest of the four teams tied, they selected fourth in the 2004 NFL draft. The Chargers selected first, the Raiders second, and the Cardinals third.
