I’ve always loved sports. But when I first tried to learn sports analytics, it was overwhelming. It still is sometimes.

So when I saw a thread by the Measurables podcast on Twitter giving the best beginner sports analytics tutorials I knew I had to share it. I don’t want you to have to go through the same trial and error process that I did when I first started.

Twitter threads are notoriously difficult to go through. Plus, you’re usually checking tweets on your phone. Alternatively, I’ve broken down the list and ordered it by sports type so you can get started right away.

Happy sports coding!
