Probably from the fact that for the last 5 years they've ranked significantly higher in home hits than away hits.

08-09: 17 home, 27 road
09-10: 12 home, 27 road
10-11: 7 home, 25 road
11-12: 9 home, 27 road
12-13: 11 home, 26 road

Through that time they've had an average of 32% more hits at home than on the road.

It it more likely they they magically increase their hitting at home or that their hit counter is a little trigger happy?
