I do have a metric in my database that qualifies 0- 100 miles, 100- 300, 300- 500, 500- 1000 and more than 1000. Surprisingly, proximity isn't a huge overachievement indicator.

Pete, is there any way to factor in how far away from home each team is playing in each game? Maybe adding in a "miles from home" number into one of the models will help shed more light on matchups where one team seems to have a significant advantage in terms of location.
