* These columns take the referee's value for "Home Minus Visitor" and subtract the league average. For example, if the home team outscored the visiting team by 3.5 points per game in games officiated by this referee and the league average was 3.0 points per game, then the associated "Relative to Average" column would have a value of 3.5 - 3.0 = +0.5.

* These columns take the referee's value for "Home Minus Visitor" and subtract the league average. For example, if the home team outscored the visiting team by 3.5 points per game in games officiated by this referee and the league average was 3.0 points per game, then the associated "Relative to Average" column would have a value of 3.5 - 3.0 = +0.5.
