The next team, say St. Louis, would have an 18.8 per cent chance, followed by Chicago at 14.2 per cent, Washington at 10.7 per cent and Columbus at 8.1 per cent.
Now, there is a 75 per cent chance some team other than Pittsburgh wins the lottery, but it's about 50-50 whether the team that wins it is in the bottom five and, therefore, able to knock Pittsburgh from the No. 1 spot.
