Title: Predicting home wins of NBA games

Synopsis

Like many self-studying data science enthusiast, this side project of mine started with me wanting to apply my data science skills to some real-world data. The topic that I chose on was on a game that I was most passionate about: basketball. Using publicly available NBA (National Basketball Association) match data, I first trained my model to predict the odds of home team wins for an NBA game. Then, with my trained model, I set up a workflow that updates the games data, and makes a daily prediction on existing games.

In this sharing, I will discuss in greater detail my project motivations, considerations, the implementations itself, the challenges I faced, and my current iteration stage.
