Correlation between player color and mmr in Dota 2

I have compiled my last 75 solo queue games and determined that 46.7% of the time I am blue, while only 6.7% of the time am I orange. 

soloqueue_color_percentage

This effect is even more pronounced in players with higher mmr than my own.  I did not use them as an example as I am unable to determine games in which they are partied up or solo-queueing, but Avidity has provided an example here where he goes 13 games in a row as the blue player.  You can do your own research by looking up any high mmr pro player on Dotabuff and looking at his recent games.  When he is in solo queue, most of the time he will be the 1st or 2nd player.  XP has a script that counts the color of games and will run it soon on high mmr accounts with only solo queue played.

Here is the record of my last 75 solo queue games used for the above pie chart.
