Average game minutes in soccer

Spent a few hours mining my soccer data, trying to find some valuable insight usable in pricing. The tools I use are SAS (handling the raw data) and QlikView to look at the data. I found one interesting trend which I will analyse more, the average game minutes in the match seems to decrease with total number of goals scored.
Maybe someone out there who has a good explanation to this trend?

      Yes, that’s probably the reason – Long time since I wrote this post, but interesting topic. For me it’s of great interest to predict the match length, to know in advance if it’s a 91 minute game or 94 minute game can make a difference 🙂 I will return in this subject and dig deeper in my data.
