Edge in TAS?

Something I don't quite understand is where the edge is in TAS? Unless you're bulling the market Optiver style, I don't see the advantage or point in buying at settlement. If someone wants to go long/short Brent at 16:30, why not do so in the outright?

The book is obviously there and traded for a reason, any chance someone could shed some light on this? :)
