Below are the turnover reports for 2012, 2011 and a report combining the two years. The graphs pictorially reinforce our earlier hypothesis: Turnovers were much more important to winning and losing in 2012 than they were in 2011.
Working left to right the 2012 graph shows almost a straight downward trend – the more turnovers the smaller the chance of winning.
The 2011 graph shows the same thing – more turnovers equals less chance of winning – but the graph is flatter and even rounded at the end (albeit with a small sample size).
I included the graph combining the two years for historical purposes as the ultimate goal is to look at long term trends rather than one year blips.
