With the improvement to the undead racial "Touch of the Grave" I guess maybe some decent pvp players have come back to horde but it still seems fairly unbalanced. I still think it seems like Alliance has the majority of the skilled pvpers due to the human racial and how that can work with extra pvp trinkets.
My view: Horde has some really bad and then really good players.
Alliance has everyone in between (and of course some amazing players)
I don't know... just my observation from playing bg after bg and either winning or losing by a landslide. Let me know what you think. : )

I'm under the impression that the overall win/loss is roughly 50/50 for each side. - Although little things like the Silvershard mine, and glider issues favoring horde could be tweaked, etc.
That being said, I find time of day still drastically affects my games. If I get a day off and play before the afternoon/evening, Horde are getting steamrolled left and right I win 4 in 5.
Then there's this large bloc of time that's completely unplayable unless you run with friends that you can organize with until the late evenings when it's much more even.
Joys of random queues though.

I've noticed this too. For me, it seems I win the majority of BGs (as horde) really late at night (usually starting at around 11pm up through 2-3am) and I lose the majority of the BGs as horde generally in the afternoon/early evening.
Other than that, there are high rated players on both factions. The human racial definitely does have some play in the matter, and I've personally known quite a few PvPers who have faction changed just to go human. All in all, when queuing random, it's just hit or miss. I've been on some really fantastic horde teams and gotten my butt handed too me by some really coordinated and skilled alliance teams.
But, to answer your question. Based on my own personal observations while playing I've come to associate alliance with PvP and horde with PvE. It seems a lot of the more skilled/dedicated PvPers are alliance or eventually change to alliance, while the horde has more top PvEers.
