Scheduling update. Will likely be taking next week off to enjoy a San Diego getaway with the fam.

This week features a little hodgepodge of articles. It seems that the well is starting to dry up in general. FiveThirtyEight going dark for quality content certainly hasn't helped. Will try and identify new sources here in the next few weeks - which will likely be dominated by football and baseball playoff races.

I am interested in sports-related data science opportunities within the betting or DFS space. Know someone I should chat with? I'll buy you a coffee.

I recently created SP K Prediction, which identifies positive expected value in MLB starting pitcher strikeout bets and automatically updates each morning. Additionally, it creates market odds for which pitcher will have the most strikeouts that day based on 10k simulations. Check it out, I think it's rad.
