Day 4 - if projection is 60 points. What's the probability of him scoring 60 points

So using your example basically what this means is.. You want to know what the projection to hit over 60 points. So what we would do is we would look at the number of times he scored 60 points or more.. in this case 0... then we look at the total number of possible outcomes which in this case is the sample size.. (number of games played)..

Then we plug the data into the formula..

The result from this formula will be a value between 0 and 1. With 0 being no chance and 1 being a certain chance.

0/2 = 0 --- there is a 0 percent chance that the player hits 60 points.

So let's say on day 4 your player hits 65 points and you want to know his chance of doing it again...

So now we have Day 1 - 50, Day 2 - 45, Day 3 - 25, Day 4 65

Now our number of favorable outcomes is 1

Our total number of possible outcomes is 4 because 4 games have been played which gives us a 25% chance he scores 60 or over..

One more example - It's the middle of the season.. the player played 43 games and scored over 60 3 times..

So we have 3/43 which gives us .0697 then we multiple by 100 and we get 6.97% chance of scoring 60 or over using the scenario...
