Default Place Your Bets

Yesterday Pittsburgh defeated Syracuse 76-61 on the gridiron.

On January 7th and on February 11th the two schools will meet in basketball.

How many times will the football teams outscore their respective basketball brethren?

A) 1
B) 2
C) 3
D) 4
E) None of the above


Hint: so far Syracuse has scored more than 61 points 4 out of 5 times
Pittsburgh has scored more than 76 points 4 out of 6 times.

I will go with A, 1 time. It would be an interesting stat if anyone tracked how often two teams played football and basketball in the same year with the football game ending in a higher combined score. I have to assume it's a rare occurrence.

Frank -

I have given this considerable thought and came up with this:


If Pittsburgh scores more than 76 points 4 out of 6 times, they will win 3 of 6 times if Syracuse scores more than 61 points 4 out of 5 times; conversely, or even Adidas-ly, if Syracuse scores less than 61 points 1 out of 5 times, they will not win a single game when Pittsburgh scores less than 76 points 2 of 6 times (assuming at least one game is against Syracuse) but more than Syracuse's point total in the same game.



I'm glad to have cleared that up for you...statistically.



lol

Pittsburgh has scored more than 76 points 4 out of 6 times.

Syracuse won 77-66

Pittsburgh won 80-75

So the correct answer is (A) one time

In their loss to Syracuse in basketball, the Pittsburgh basketball team was out scored by the Pittsburgh football team.

It would have been foolish to bet against a pokerplyr80.
