By The Numbers: Huddle Performance During NBA Playoffs

Week 2 of NBA Playoffs is almost over and we are diving into Huddle performance during the week. We did an analysis on Huddle's pricing performance and uptime performance. Through a closer look at our performance during a recent Lakers vs. Nuggets matchup, we underscored our market dominance in pricing. Additionally, Huddle's impressive suspension reactivation performance, boasting a 97% rate within 15 seconds, solidifies our commitment to seamless user experiences.

Pricing: Huddle vs Market

This graph offers an in-depth exploration of Huddle's pricing dominance during the prime-time matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets, where we used Huddle prices to bet into the market.

Each data point on the graph represents a $10 bet where Huddle's model significantly deviated from the market's price. For instance, if Huddle placed a $10 bet every time their model had a difference of more than 2% compared to the market, they would have gained a profit of $486 during that particular game.

Furthermore, if the model had a deviation of 3% or more from the market, the profit would have surged to $587. This illustrates how Huddle's model can enhance pricing accuracy, helping operators increase their margins and avoid being exploited by sharp bettors.

Ultimately, this data shows the potential profit Huddle could have garnered had they opted to utilize their model for betting directly into the market, rather than solely pricing probabilities for their partners who use them to accept bets. 

During the second week of the NBA Playoffs, there were several instances where Huddle's prices deviated from the market prices. For instance, on multiple occasions the Huddle prices differed from the market by 3%. Impressively, in 70% of these instances, the market adjusted to match Huddle's prices. This underscores Huddle's influence as a market leader in setting prices.

The trend remained the same even when the pricing differences were larger - the market ultimately adjusted their prices to Huddle's prices, underscoring the our remarkable market-making prowess and solidifies its dominant position in setting pricing standards within the industry.
