In a mild surprise, there are many cities with worse home-field advantages than Washington D.C. SBNation.com's Jon Bois crunched some numbers and found that the average home-court bump score for D.C.'s four pro teams was 79, meaning it was 21 percentage points below the average. That's not great, but there are many cities (Philadelphia, Buffalo, Toronto, Kansas City, New Orleans, Oakland, Cleveland, Los Angeles, San Diego and Miami) that fare worse. I guess this city of transplants doesn't have as big of an effect on home-field advantage as we all expected.
