In my league, head-to-head is the first tie breaker when teams finish tied in the standings. If this week goes how I think it will, I will have 4 teams in the same division finish at 6-7. Typically in this situation division teams split their season series and the tie-breaker is decided by points but get this:
Teams A, B, C and D are all 6-7...
TEAM A - beat Team B twice, beat Team C twice
TEAM B - beat Team C twice
TEAM C - beat Team D twice
TEAM D - beat Team A twice
Who wins this tie-breaker? I would love to make it easy and revert to points, but it doesn't seem fair that one team could miss the playoffs if they beat a team that made the playoffs twice and had the same overall record.
