Point Differential is the numerical difference between points scored and points allowed. Some people think a team’s Point Differential doesn’t mean anything. Others say it’s a great way to tell how good a team’s offense and/or defense really is.

According to one industry expert, “Wins in close games tend not to reflect a team's true skill. Teams that start the season with a better record than their point differential tend to slow down and vice versa.”

I say we put that theory to the test.

As we head into the weekend, some teams are already halfway done with their regular season. It’s the perfect time to take a look at who the top teams are now and then compare them to the top teams heading into the playoffs in a few short weeks.
