March Madness by the numbers

March Madness final620

I didn't fill out my bracket this year, so it's not nearly as exciting for me. I don't think that's stopped thousands of bars across the country from cleaning house though.

  • Speaking of March Madness data: found a cool dataset showing the Win Probability for college basketball games: bit.ly/ncaawinprob — raw data here http://bit.ly/ncaawinprob-rawdata

    Anyone want to try their hand at visualizing it? There’s some pretty cool time dynamics, and I was shocked at how steep the safe-margin threshold is. For instance, with 10 minutes left in the game, a home team with a 6-point lead is 90+% likely to win. I think you could win a lot of bar bets using this table.
