Do away teams have the advantage in Scotland?

Home advantage is generally taken for granted in football. In most cases no matter where they are in the table the home team will always feel they have a chance, even in a top vs. bottom scenario.
However, during this season the home advantage of some leagues seems to have experienced a significant drop.
As a result of this I decided to look at all the leagues that StrataBet cover, paying particularly close attention to the Scottish Premiership.
To begin with, the graph below shows the % of points won at home vs. % of points won away (data correct up to 04/01/16):

I principally cover the Scottish Premiership and it appeared to me that many of the teams seemed to do better when away.
