Little to nothing, in theory, considering its almost impossible to prove. But most bowlers aren't actually good enough to decide when to bowl well or not. I don't believe sandbagging exists the way so many people do.

I am interested however to see how many former 220 average bowlers are now 209 average bowlers, trying to game the new division at Nationals.

Plus the handicap is calculated from your running average so if you bagged the first 3 games, it would correct very quickly.

I tend to do the opposite. For some reason, I start a league very hot and cool off over time (which is the exact opposite if what I want, sigh) but my average corrects after a bit.
