    Fanduel has a free MLB contest every day this month for anyone interested. They also have a free NBA contest each day at least 2 games are on.

    Scooter picked up a cool 71 points in draft kings last night. He was under 1% owned.

    MLB.com has a free bracket challenge for the home run derby. Chance to win tickets to the world series, or gift certificates.

    That happened to me when I followed the link that Hurl tweeted. The link on the homepage of MLB.com worked for me, though.

    I was running some database performance tests, and thought I'd post the early end results here just in case anyone is at all interested.. Keep in mind, these don't take ANYTHING other than the prior x number of games into account, plus what's mentioned. They were meant simply to test performance and find programming bugs. This is for hitters only, and takes into account 2014 through 2017 (a few days ago).

    Games is the number of games to look back.
    FDPA is actual fanduel points. FDPP is predicted fanduel points.

    Awesome Abom. I don't pretend to know anything about computers or programming, but it looks like you have gotten pretty good results.

    I know there's at least one bug in the code somewhere (producing the weird result for all games with a look back of 3, and was with a look back of 2 for some other settings I didn't include). I haven't been able to track it down yet. The data appears to be making sense otherwise though, so I think it's probably correct. The interesting part will be incorporating match up data, park, pitch characteristics, etc in.

    A week or so ago I think it was. Had what I thought were two really nice matchups to extend it, and both put up a goose egg lol.
