For my March Madness project I programmed an NBA betting model using python and machine learning. I did this project because I wanted to learn how to program. I chose to learn the Python language because it is a very versatile programming language that has a lot of capabilities with machine learning. Machine learning is a form of artificial intelligence where the computer makes assumptions based on past information. I used apis in order to import the statistics that I used and then I used pythons machine learning functions in order to predict who would win the game if two NBA basketball teams played based on Collective stats of a team. once you had the stats you would simply just compare them to another team’s stats and whichever score was higher would be your winner.
