117th issue.

Officially November! Remember to turn back the clocks this weekend.

Before you do, five fun articles to checkout! Jitterbug and juke stats for NFL RBs lead us off. Next, a technical review of how DraftKings builds Monte Carlo simulations for tennis. I think it's rad. Another technical review follow, but this one for visualizing college football ELO ratings. On the back half, a review of how Premier teams press, and how Tommy Pham turned his World Series around.

I am interested in sports-related data science opportunities within the betting or DFS space. Know someone I should chat with?
