Sports data sources

One of the problems with being into data analytics is, well the lack of data! In many cases data come hard and are not even available.  Here, I will provide some links to APIs and datasets that you can use for free for your analysis:

  • nflgame API in Python: https://github.com/BurntSushi/nflgame
  • NBAstats API in Python: https://github.com/bradleyfay/NBAStats
  • mlbgame API in Python: https://github.com/zachpanz88/mlbgame
  • nhl API in Python: https://github.com/peterstark72/nhl
  • betfair API for Python: https://github.com/jmcarp/betfair.py
  • soccer data: https://openfootball.github.io
  • soccer API: http://api.football-data.org/docs/latest/index.html
  • Basketball reference: http://www.basketball-reference.com
  • nba API in Python for tracking player movement: http://savvastjortjoglou.com/nba-play-by-play-movements.html
  • nba game data: https://github.com/neilmj/BasketballData/tree/master/2016.NBA.Raw.SportVU.Game.Logs
  • Basketball data: https://github.com/neilmj/BasketballData

As you can see I love Python 🙂 One another note this list will be constantly updated with new sources coming up.  If you know of a good data source that I have missed (I am sure there are plenty of those) let me know and I will add it!
