I'm still not buying it. If this is based on attempts, how often do teams go for 4th and 1 on their own 9, or for 4th and 8 at the 50 even? Numbers don't lie, but where the numbers come from is relevant to the validity of the results.

It measures two things independently:

How often teams get the 1st down on 4th and 1 on any place on the field that is not a goal to go situation. It also measures how many net points teams score on drives starting at the 9.

There is plenty historical data on each of those scenarios and you can put them together to get a valid analysis.

Well-said. I don't understand probability math but I understand enough to know, well, it works. Just like how they can poll a relatively-small group of people about something and get an accurate idea of how a larger group feels about a subject.

Ever hear of a Black Swan?

There's a saying in forecasting data science. Bet your change in probability, but save your fortune for the Black Swan.
