NBA Impact of Rest - Update

I recently discovered that my analysis on the impact of rest on NBA point spreads had an error that was skewing the results.  The original analysis found that a team that was playing on no rest was penalized by 0.75 points in the point spread.  After the correction, the penalty changed from 0.75 points to 1.25 points.


The new 1.25 point penalty was factored into the Today's Games and Ticker features earlier this week.
