Exercise: Lucky for Spurs? Suggested answer 2

Question 2. Where do you think this null hypothesis came from? Did someone decide to investigate it out of curiosity?

Suggested answer

I don't know for sure, but I am fairly confident that someone noticed the pattern and generated the hypothesis from that.

I doubt that anybody would test this (and every other digit, years when there was a general election, years when it snowed on Christmas day, etc.) without having noticed a pattern first.
