We're Back Baby!
Yes it's been a long time but I'm back and will be posting more frequently here. It's been a while and I've been focusing on other pieces of work - including spending more time and focus against my full time job, working on NBA predictions, and a handful of other projects, but with football season around the corner I want to make sure I am hitting the milestones I have set up for Bettor Picks.
Some thoughts for now:
I think Bettor Picks will become a seasonal, NFL only page. To be honest, the NBA model was extremely challenging to build and the returns were very unsatisfactory. Not only did I feel forced to run the model literally every single day, there was no way for me to offer a free and a paid version, so my incentives were misaligned. Bettor Picks for NBA felt more like a chore than the fun experience that the NFL season was. Hopefully, the NFL season can prove to be a lot of fun and we can continue the slowed momentum the community has faced since the end of the season last year.
I plan on testing different business models within the framework of Bettor Picks this year so that I can enjoy the work, followers can engage in a fun way, and the business can further support itself.
Additionally, there have been a lot of data science methods that I have learned over the past few months that I want to incorporate into the modeling efforts. I also plan on making these blog posts a bit more in detail to document my work better.
That's all for now! Thanks for sticking around if you're reading this, and feel free to reach out via the contact link or email directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for ideas, questions, comments, etc.
