What is a Dime in Sports Betting?

The term “dime” as two meanings in the sports betting world, one drastically more important to the handicapping approach. The first generic meaning of “dime” is basically another way to say $1000. The more revelant and important meaning to bettors everywhere though refers to what is known as a “dime line,” and it’s when sportsbooks offer better prices on both the favorite and underdog of a specific game, minimizing the juice a bettor must pay to make their wager.

What is a Dime Line?

Often associated with predominantly moneyline driven sports (baseball, hockey), a dime line reduces the vig in their odds to help attract action from bettors. As beating the market with the vig included is every bettor’s goal when they dive into sports betting seriously, dime lines offer a ‘discounted’ price to help bettors try to achieve that goal. Think of it like always having a coupon with you for the products you are looking for in everyday shopping.

Many bettors believe that reputable sportsbooks that consistently offer dime lines can’t be promoted enough. Some of them will even go the step further and offer a nickel (5 cents) line to bettors. With sports betting being all about finding value in the numbers, dime lines are a critical part of success to your bottom line. Losing wagers lose less, winning wagers win more, and with money management the lifeblood of a sports bettors career, maximizing your wins and minimizing your losses is all one can ask for.

You’ve knocked at the right door if you’re looking for sportsbooks that offer dime lines. The importance of knowing where to find these lines is critical as they offer a huge benefit to each and every bettor. By reducing the juice on every bet you make, your ROI% (return on investment) will see fewer large swings and sports betting can start to pay out like any other profitable business. Correctly predicting more winners than losers over the long haul plays a big part in that, but once you’ve found a quality sportsbook that consistently offers dime lines, it’s unlikely you’ll ever leave.
