Reading XML file of Sports scores

Experts, a website that I use for Sports Scores and Lines makes their info available to users in XML:

http://www.mysportsbook.com/lines/cgi/lines.cgi?tem=parse&sport=206&ct=text/xml&type=

I cannot figure out where in this XML file it tells you the Favorite.
<FavoredTeam> is almost always blank but it still tells me the line (ex:  <Line>-7.5</Line> )

I was expecting to see something like this:  <FavoredTeam>Patriots(NewEngland)</FavoredTeam>
but instead I see:  <FavoredTeam /> for almost every entry (unless even).

Am I interpreting this wrong or can I NOT get that information from this XML file?

no you are reading the XML correctly.  The server is not filling in the <FavoredTeam> element.  I checked other sports and the same thing is happening for other sports as well.
