I list football scores down various cells in various columns. Below each cell with a score, I am wishing to determine whether the left number of the score is greater than, less than or equal to the right score. When I use the exact same formula, I do not receive the correct value consistently. Would appreciate any help in determining the reason(s) for the inconsistency.

You are comparing text values & not numbers which is causing the problem. Try
Excel Formula:
=IF(G190="","",CHOOSE(SIGN(LEFT(G190,FIND("-",G190)-1)-RIGHT(G190,LEN(G190)-FIND("-",G190)))+2,"L","T","W"))

You are comparing textual numbers rather than comparing real numbers. For that reason 37-4, for example, will produce L becaue 3 is less than 4. Add zero to each left/ right formula. It will then coerce those textual numbers into real numbers before the comparison. Presuming your formulas are otherwise correct:

=IF(G190="","",IF(0+LEFT(G190,FIND("-",G190)-1)>0+RIGHT(G190,LEN(G190)-FIND("-",G190)),"W",IF(0+LEFT(G190,FIND("-",G190)-1)<0+RIGHT(G190,LEN(G190)-FIND("-",G190)),"L","T")))
