March Madness Bracket using Betting Futures and Python

Get the code

Was talking with my Aunt about some bracket advice today and realized I should make a quick tutorial for more tech minded people. It’s a pretty reusable approach.

Just scrape betting information to make picks. Golf is another good one where this works.

In the tutorial I go through:

  • Scraping a website
  • Kaggle as a data science training ground
  • Generating a bracket using futures information

While it’s not my main bracket, using futures info is a great starting point on what other people are thinking.

Hope you enjoy and it helps your bracket!
