What Is an Edge in NHL Betting?

The edge at Dimers is when we think the probability of an event occurring is more likely than the best odds available. Essentially, it means that DimersBOT projects a bet has a better likelihood of winning than the sportsbooks are giving it. That's why the higher the edge, the better for us.

Although an edge does not guarantee that you will win a given bet, consistently taking picks with a higher betting edge can increase your chances of being profitable in the long run. This is an essential aspect of being a successful sports bettor.
