WELCOME

The NBA Data Challenge, brought to you by G-Research, gives you the chance to demonstrate your ability to use large data-sets to predict basketball results.

Create a model to accurately predict basketball scores using NBA data, and you’ll be in the running to win cash prizes.

Each month we’ll be handing out 3 prizes to the top 3 closest predictors:

  • 1st place prize is a £1,500 cash prize
  • 2nd place prize is a £750 cash prize
  • 3rd place prize is a £250 cash prize

At the end of the season, during the play-off period we’ll be giving out 3 grand prizes to the top 3 closest predictors:

  • 1st place prize is a £15,000 cash prize
  • 2nd place prize is a £3,000 cash prize
  • 3rd place prize is a £2,000 cash prize

No knowledge of basketball is required, just the ability to work with data.
