Looking for someone with experience in data science and analytics that is very proficient in Excel working with large data sets and using VBA. This project could last anywhere from a week to over a month. The goal of this project will be to analyze and find correlations between certain variables and to use them to construct a predictive model. While I think this can all be done using Excel VBA, programming experience would also be helpful as this may be more efficiently done in R or SAS.
Given that the content of this project is sports-related, it would be very helpful or essential to have a general understanding of sports and in particular sports games and odds. (For example- If you know what the terms "Moneyline", "Over/under", "Spread" are then you probably have enough basic knowledge to work on this). While this is not necessarily a requirement, it would save me time in having to explain the big picture.
If you are skilled in Excel, working with large data, have a basic understanding of sports, and enjoy predictive modeling, this will be the job for you.
