Default a lo mejor

I keep hearing this phrase . . . "a lo mejor"

But can't figure out what it means! Help!

Could someone give me an english equivalent and a few examples of it used.

Thanks!

"Probably"
-¿Veines a ver el partido luego?
-A lo mejor.... depende de mi mujer....

From WordReference
http://www.wordreference.com/definicion/mejor

a lo mejor loc. adv. Expresa la incertidumbre o posibilidad de algo:
a lo mejor me voy de madrugada.

Or "fat chance of seeing the game Ben!"

"A lo mejor" also in another sense means perhaps. It´s just like saying "tal vez"
