Welcome to the BettorEdge Picks of the Day!
Here is where we share a few of our favorite picks on BettorEdge. What is BettorEdge? Great question.
Legal in 45 states, BettorEdge is flipping the sports betting industry upside down. Instead of traditional sports betting, where the house has an edge, BettorEdge is a social betting dashboard, that connects users who each have their own ideas of what the line should be.
And the best part – there is no hold. Holds are how sportsbooks stay in business; a tax on the betting public. This lack of hold is what gives BettorEdge its legality in almost every state.

The Math of BettorEdge
When a sportsbook posts a line with -110 for the Colts +8.5 or -110 for the Chiefs -8.5, a bettor is betting into a 4.55% hold. This means 4.55% of every dollar bet, in the long run, is going back to the sportsbook.
BettorEdge cuts through that, by allowing users to accept other users’ bets straight up. Users can submit any line and odds combination, and if someone else wants to accept, then the order is fulfilled and the bet is on.
Though articles are only starting Jan. 11, 2023, I’ve been using BettorEdge for some time.
To verify my record, my Action Network account can be found by searching for CJ Olson in the Action Network Sports Betting App.
