If two or more teams are tied in the standings and the head-to-head tiebreaker setting is used, the system will attempt to break the tie by comparing head-to-head records.
As long as each of the teams involved in the tie have played the same number of head-to-head games amongst the tied teams, this head-to-head tiebreaker will be used. Otherwise, this tiebreaker will be skipped and the next tiebreaker will be used.
For example, if 3 teams tied and each team played one another twice, then the tiebreaker would be used. Or, if 4 teams tied and Team A played Team B & Team C once each and Team B played Team A & Team D once each and if Team C played Team A & Team D once and if Team D played Team B & Team C once, then tie tiebreaker would be used.
If teams are still tied after this tiebreaker, then the next tiebreaker is used.
