USL Power Rankings - Week 10

Monarchs stay on top after win in Vegas.

The methodology for my scoring system is the same as I’ve published before. Anything that deviates from the ‘expected’ result (I.E. home team winning) equals a larger change; the expected result will still cause some changes, but often smaller than the surprises. Thus you will see teams that win on the road gaining more ‘power ranking points’ than a home team winning by the same score.

Notice that there are some teams with negative points; this is part of the scoring. All teams started out with 0 points at the start of the season; teams that won in the first weeks moved higher (into the negative), and losers moved lower on the chart, wins by large margins widen that gap.
