I disagree with you on the MLB, NBA and NFL

MLB: 76 of 162 games (46.9%) are divisional games
NBA: 16 of 82 games (19.5%) are divisional games
NFL: 6 of 16 games (37.5%) are divisional games

Technically all 3 leagues could have a division champion that didn't win the most divisional games, had a losing divisional win percentage, and not win a single divisional game (might be tough to do in MLB). FWIW this season the Jaguars are the AFC South Division Champion even though they went 4-2 in the division and Titans went 5-1 in the division. You will find similar things with last year's NBA season.

Atlantic Division Champion: Celtics (11-5) instead of the Raptors (14-2)
Central Division Champion: Cavs (8-8) instead of the Bucks (10-6)
Southeast Division Champion: Wizards (8-8) instead of the Hornets (10-6)
Northwest Division Champion: Jazz (8-8) instead of the Trail Blazers (11-5)
