114th issue.

NHL 2023-2024 has started, NBA isn't too far away. It's a good time to be a sports fan right now. MLB playoffs are in full swing (still waiting for the Astros to lose), the NFL is doing its thang, and College Football has hit the halfway mark. The only downside? Daylight is sprinting in the wrong direction, and the sun, for those of us who experience all four seasons, is becoming less reliable than an umpire calling balls and strikes.

The lineup this week is a goodie. Leading off, a hot topic (not the hipster/emo store), regarding layoffs in MLB playoffs. Apparently, the NBA GMs submit a yearly survey. Neat. Data says some things. Two interesting NFL situational questions are then addressed, followed up by a blossoming tennis star.

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.
