Skipped last week to hang out with family. Hope you did too!
World Cup is nearing the beginning of the knockout stage, so I've included two related to soccer. One is a fun quiz with good data-based visuals and another for predicting outcomes. Parity and predictability across American sports are next, followed by two college football pieces. The first a Python guide to setting up an analysis, and the second is for the perfect tailgate.
I'm interested in sports data science opportunities next year, have an employer you recommend? Let's chat!
