That's supposedly how the Sagarin ratings work, and certainly how betting odds are calculated, but the algorithms aren't disclosed. They'll also take things into account such as home court advantage, if a player's recently been injured or coming back, even if key players were pulled out due to a big lead. And, of course, they still frequently get it wrong.
