How much of a factor does home court advantage have in producing wins? This paper seeks to answer that question by using a logit regression to analyze the determinants of winning at home. The dependent variable will be a dummy variable of wins. Based on theory, it is hypothesized that home court advantage exists, and that it can be explained mostly by fan attendance, familiarity with the court, and referee bias.
