Machine Learning and NBA prediction

Post by vzografos » Tue Jun 11, 2019 9:54 am

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone is into machine learning for NBA game prediction, in order to exchange some ideas and features/datasets.

Let me know what your methods and approaches are and we can discuss them in this thread.
Cheers

My hearsay understanding is that some of the best gambling syndicates use machine learning approaches. I doubt they would discuss it publicly.

Well I am actually trying to start a small fund that trades on sport-predictions. Trading I mean placing bets on sports markets using principles from machine learning (for prediction) and porfolio-theory (for money management).

As I am working by myself, and it is really a slow process, I would really like to hear from people with similar and related background (e.g. computer science, machine learning, finance etc) so we can exchange ideas or even work together.

:)
