Betfair’s NBA Datathon

In response to the NBA’s decision to suspend the season, Betfair has been left with no option but to cancel our NBA Datathon.

We were extremely impressed with the quality of submissions last weekend, and as usual, will be looking at running similar competitions in the future to test our incredibly skilled data community.

The Betfair Github

Our Data Scientists have teamed up to compile some of our best resources on Github. There you’ll find guides and tutorials for future competitions.

The tutorial touches on the different steps required to go from data to model to finally entering a submission. The data has already been provided to participants but is also available in this Github repository.

Feel free to browse around the Github as well for more tutorials and insights. Check out the Github here.
