  1. Yeah, looking to get involved next season about 10 - 20 games in. Investigated building a model looking at historical data, but it was a little cumbersome for me with the team volatility season to season, I think caused by the drafts, so I'm going to build something based on current season only...
  2. All your responses are much appreciated, thanks for getting back to me, I spoke to a few other people and they suggested that Python would be a better option to use, so it looks like I am going to try to teach myself that. Hopefully I can learn it before the new season starts thanks again.
  3. Hi there, image one is showing past results that I can copy and paste in or pull in through external data, where image 2 is from my existing model showing up and coming matches, I can just get the Elo stuff on a different sheet or spreadsheet and do a vlookup to pop the Elo into the up and coming matches. Ideally I'd like to build the Elo ratings from all the past results for the last 3 or so seasons, once that is up to date I can either manually enter the results or pull them in from external data, either or. Thanks
  4. I don't have any form of the Elo rating yet, but it will only be on the NHL (Ice Hockey), so one league. It would be similar to this and this is the end result of the Poisson model...
  5. @Kentucky110 Hi, thanks for getting back to me. My existing Poisson model is in Excel and just pulls data from a few web pages and then it is formula based to do the calculations. I was hoping to have another spreadsheet, or just add a few extra sheets to my existing one, where I can enter or pull results from a page which will then update the Elo ratings. I want to then add Pythagorean expectations (which I'm OK with) and then look to get involved where all 3 approaches point in the same direction. My Poisson model was OK last season, just under break even, so I just want to see if I can make it a little more accurate.
  6. Hi, I'm looking to compile Elo ratings for the NHL and incorporate them into my existing Poisson model. I'm no expert at vba and doing it manually would be impractical, so was hoping someone had and would be willing to part with a spreadsheet that can receive an input of results and then update the rating? Cheers MG
  7. Quick question Joe Pesci - do you have a model for your hockey, or is it your experienced subjective view? Cheers
  8. Hi, I have been scouring the web in search of this data, but I can't find it anywhere. I am looking for a website that shows the jockeys and trainers carded for the courses that day with their respective runs, wins and places at that track. There are sites I use for South African, US and Australian stuff which are great (not sure if I'm allowed to post the link here), but I can't find anything for the UK and Ireland. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Cheers MG
