Tables, Ladders and Chairs, Oh My…
WWE TLC is this Sunday on the WWE Network featuring the roster of the Smackdown Brand. The markets for the wagering have opened up and can be followed at 5Dimes.
In the main event for the WWE Championship AJ Styles defends against Dean Ambrose in a TLC match. This feud has been or ordeal for both men and Styles is heavily favored to retain at -900 giving him a 90% chance of winning. His title reign has been both successful and well received and it appears a lengthy, prosperous in in AJ’s future. The only chance Ambrose has here is the “James Ellsworth Factor” which admittedly is a very real possibility.
In a ladder match for the Intercontinental Title, Dolph Ziggler challenges IC Champ The Miz continuing their feud of the year nominated series. The odds are close here with Miz favored at -190 and Dolph as a slight underdog at +150. The match itself could be an absolute show stealer with the quality of matches between these two as of recent being considered their best work ever.
Women’s Tables Match and Wyatt Family Favored
In a tables match for the Smackdown Women’s Championship, Becky Lynch defends against Alexa Bliss. Lynch is considerably favored to win the match at -260. Becky is on a roll at the moment and it’s best for the entire women’s division that it stays that way. The division is on Becky’s back for now and she is handling the pressure as Bliss and Carmella continue to improve and grow into their roles on the main roster. Nikki Bella is also reestablishing herself since returning from major injuries.
Heath Slater and Rhyno, the Tag Team Champions, are set to defend against The Wyatt Family. The Wyatts are favored to win the match at -600, so they are strongly favored to win. It is not realistic for Heath and Rhyno to remain champions for much longer and it’s time for The Wyatts to have a purpose as opposed to rudderless direction.
Nikki Bella and Carmella on No DQ Match, Baron Corbin Targets Kalisto
In a No DQ Match, Nikki Bella is the favorite at -145 against Carmella at +105. Bella’s return is going well and she needs to continue stacking up big wins, but with Carmella doing well in promos and stepping it up in the ring, it’s difficult to argue she’s not ready to be elevated right now. Really difficult to make a solid call on this one. Carmella has a serious chance here.
Baron Corbin continues his crusade against smaller competitors with Kalisto is the cross hairs this time around. Corbin is favored at -400, is a star on the rise since being drafted to Smackdown, and Kalisto winning has no upside. Corbin is going to be star and should keep his focus in this match because he cannot afford make careless mistakes with opportunity at his doorstep.
These lines changing constantly and can be followed at 5Dimes where registering for the sports book requires no credit card or obligation to place wagers.
