By The Numbers: Huddle Performance, NFL Regular Season Finale

In the final game of Week 18, the Bills were able to secure a division title and clinch the No. 2 seed in the AFC after outlasting the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium, 21-14. It was absolutely marquee matchup to effectively close the 2023-2024 NFL regular season. May the playoffs begin!

In this week's "By The Numbers" series we review Huddle's pricing vs. the market for the entirety of NFL Week 18 and also take a look at the strong uptime performance for Sunday's Dolphins vs Bills game.

Analyzing Huddle's Dolphins vs. Bills Uptime Performance

During the game, Huddle vastly outperformed the market with only 7% suspension time compared to 15% as the market average. Through the entirety of the game, Huddle's superior markets had a downtime of 13 minutes and 24 seconds, while the market, on average, had a downtime of over 27 minutes.

Maximizing uptime is a game-changer for sportsbook operators. In the fast-paced world of in-play betting, every minute counts. For instance, in a recent Dolphins vs Bills prime time game, Huddle extended the betting time by 14 minutes compared to the market average.

Imagine the impact over the entire NFL season – consistently boosting turnover with Huddle's NFL Pricing and Trading. The combined effect is undeniable.

To illustrate the importance of uptime for sportsbook operators, let's delve into the financial aspect.

If an operator extends in-play betting by an extra 14 minutes, as Huddle did in this case, it could significantly affect the operator's turnover. Specifically, with around $75 million already in-play during a typical prime time game, the extension could result in an additional $5 million (approx.) in turnover for a sportsbook, based on calculations.

A sportsbook platform's trust in ease of use, responsiveness, and reliability is linked to its uptime quality. This trust minimizes the risk of issues such as crashes or delays that could negatively impact the bettor's experience. When it comes to financial gains for a sportsbook, Huddle's strong uptime guarantees constant availability of odds, providing users with an optimal and uninterrupted betting experience.
