PALO ALTO, Calif. - Feb. 5, 2019 - PRLog -- Thuuz Sports, the most powerful automated video highlights production platform for worldwide sports, today announced a new monthly feature measuring the most exciting games across all broadcast sports events. Using their custom designed algorithms to measure real-time event excitement, Thuuz provides a unique look into what games have gotten fans the most excited and engaged as 2019 rolls along. In January, two NFL League Championship overtime thrillers led the top ten, followed by the NHL matchup between the San Jose Sharks and Washington Capitals. The NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets were the only two teams to make it on to the list twice for the month, and two men's NCAA games also cracked the list.
Interestingly, of the ten most exciting games, NINE were won by the visiting team.
The game excitement ratings are measured on a 0 to 100 scale and take into consideration game pace, team parity, play novelty, momentum shifts, social buzz, and historical context. The algorithms behind the excitement ratings are statistically calibrated to insure the appropriate distribution of ratings across the duration of a season or course of a tournament.
"We are all about quantifiable excitement at Thuuz, and we think this monthly look will help all our partners, and even fans and teams, get more insight into what events are capturing interest," said Thuuz CEO Warren Packard. "Our AI engine gives us the ability to look at thousands of real-time matchups every month, and these snapshots will be a new, fun and important way to communicate these results to all."
