March Madness, Nate Silver, Billy Walters

With March Madness approaching quickly I’m excited to be in an office that collects brackets from everyone for the first time. Even though there’s no betting involved (just intense bragging rights from what I’ve gathered so far), it’s sparked my interest in using lots of data to make predictions. After limited success finding Nate Silver’s bracket (just his Final 4 predictions and a piece in the NYT today), I found this interesting video about Billy Walters, sports betting legend.

… And a video of Nate Silver for kicks.
