Brock Lesnar Heavily Favored to Beat Challenger Braun Strowman at WWE No Mercy

The following odds are sourced from 5Dimes, which offers betting to players worldwide. Click here to visit Five Dimes.

The odds set by Paddy Power have translated over to the 5Dimes, which are now available. Through years of studying WWE betting odds, we know that this is when the fun begins in the form of drastic line moves and sometimes outright flips altogether.

The WWE Universal Championship had the reigning, defending champion Brock Lesnar at a -300 favorite and now he is even more favored at -1530, the strongest odds out of anyone on the card. This leaves challenger Braun Strowman as a +720 underdog, meaning a $100 bet upon success would win $720 and this would include a DQ or count out victory where the title wouldn’t change hands but the wager would be won.

Roman Reigns, originally favored at -200 against John Cena, has seen his chances widen to an even more favorable -445. In a newly added match as far as odds are concerned Neville is favored at -300 to retain the Cruiserweight Championship against Enzo Amore. Jason Jordan is now slightly favored at -175 to defeat IC champion the Miz and as usual this does not mean Jordan actually wins the title due to the possibility of a DQ or count out win.

Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins have also seen their odds become longer with the Raw Tag Champs now even more favored at -585. Finn Balor has seen his favorability grow to -300 as well. Finally, Alexa Bliss is still favored slightly at -120, and these odds haven’t moved much, however now the entire field of 4 challengers to the Raw Women’s Championship can be backed at the same odds of -120. Whoever is backing Bliss has tremendous faith in her chances of winning.

Ambrose and Rollins would be the next most favored at -225 to win their tag team title defense against Sheamus and Cesaro. Alexa Bliss is at +120, which technically would make her and underdog if not for the fact that she is defending against four opponents. Bliss has the best odds out of anyone in the Fatal Fiveway.

The Miz is slightly favored at -110 to win against the challenger to his Intercontinental Championship, with Jason Jordan at -137. This is a “pick em’” situation, with both being listed as slight favorites because sportsbooks cannot call this one at all right now.

Roman Reigns is at -200, making him the favorite to defeat John Cena in this Wrestlemania caliber attraction. Finn Balor at -187 is also favored to beat Bray Wyatt.

Major Upsets at WWE Summerslam Means the Leaks Have Finally Been Sealed! No More Spoilers.

5Dimes offers gambling odds of all WWE PPV Events and accept customers worldwide. Click Here To Visit 5Dimes.

The smart money odds never came in for this year’s Summerslam and it appears WWE has finally sealed the leaks that have been effecting the betting odds for years. Time will tell if this is a permanent policy to keep the outcomes under wraps. As a result there were 5 upsets out of 13 matches.

While Shinsuke Nakamura had been heavily favored to defeat Jinder Mahal in the WWE Championship match, those odds flipped hours before the match slightly in Mahal’s favor. Jinder ended up winning. Not exactly an upset by the final odds, however Nakamura was at -1500 at one point, so earlier bets on Mahal paid off nicely. The Smackdown Women’s Championship also flipped before the event in Natalya’s favor, as well and held up with Natty beating Naomi for the title.

John Cena was a slight underdog against Baron Corbin, however was able to win and this can be considered an upset.

Sasha Banks was able to win the WWE Raw Championship from Alexa Bliss as a slight underdog, however Banks had been favored throughout most of the week the before the odds flipped in Bliss’ favor.

Rusev was surprisingly favored to win from early on, and was able to hold on to the favorability up until the bell rang. Randy Orton pulled off the victory anyway, yet another upset.

The Usos, a +400 underdog, managed to successfully regain the Smackdown Tag Team Championships against the New Day at -600. Even in the first preshow match the odds did not hold up. The Miz and The Miztourage upset The Hardy Boyz and Jason Jordan.

If this trend continues, the landscape of the betting odds has effectively been changes and smart money leading to spoilers could be history.

Summerslam Predictions

Major Shifts in WWE Summerslam Betting Odds

The following odds are sourced from 5Dimes, which offers betting to players worldwide. Click here to visit Five Dimes.

There have been many changes to the Summerslam on the WWE Network betting odds the night before the event and are now available to the worldwide market, which always bring the most dramatic changes. The Universal Championship match hasn’t seen any major changes. Brock Lesnar is still favored to retain, Samoa Joe is the most likely challenger to dethrone the Champion, however Braun Strowman has overtaken Roman Reigns in probability of winning.

Shinsuke Nakamura is now a heavy favorite to defeat Jinder Mahal, however this does not mean he walks away with the WWE Championship due to the possibility of a count out or DQ loss where the title wouldn’t change hands.

The Raw Women’s Championship, originally close to an even bet has went in the favor of Alexa Bliss retaining over Sasha Banks. Naomi is now heavily favored to retain against Natalya in the Smackdown Women’s Championship, so the lines have moved even more of her favor. This is possibly fueled by rumors of the WWE marketing the champion’s glowing championship through WWE Shop in the future, so the title would need to remain with Naomi to make that possible.

Another match that was very close has seen major moves is the Crusierweight Championship match with newly crowned champion Akira Tozawa favored to retain against the man he beat for the title, Neville. Both the Raw and Smackdown Tag Team Titles have the challengers favored to win, however there is one major distinction here. While The Usos have become less favored to lose to The New Day, Cesaro and Sheamus have seen their odds shortened. The Raw Tag Champs are still underdogs, but the challengers of Dean Amborse and Seth Rollins are less favored to win than they were originally.

Big Cass was at -700 to defeat the Big Show and while the projected outcome is the same, they have been shortened to only -180. Something is definitely going on with this match. Randy Orton is now even more of an underdog against Rusev, which is puzzling but makes for an interesting match in terms of who will actually win.

John Cena was at one point favored to beat Baron Corbin, but this shifted completely. It is very close however. The odds below are easy to read with the guidance of knowing that the minus sign represents the underdog, while the plus sign does the same for the favorite. The number after the plus or minus indicated how favored or unfavored the competitor(s) is/are.

Early Favorite in Summerslam Universal Championship Fatal Fourway

The following odds are sourced from 5Dimes. Bets are taken from players worldwide.

Will Champion Brock Lesnar Hang On to the Universal Championship?

In addition to the WWE Championship match between Jinder Mahal and Shinsuke Nakamura at Summerslam, the Fatal Fourway for the WWE Universal Championship now has odds as well set by 5Dimes. Champion Brock Lesnar is the initial favorite to win at -120, meaning a $120 bet upon success would win $100. This is considered an “even bet” with the added 20% stake being the “vig”.

Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe both have identical odds at +245 of dethroning Lesnar and due to the fourway stipulation, there isn’t a chance of a DQ or count out finish, so the winner walks out of Summerslam as Champion. This is single elimination, so Brock wouldn’t even have to be pinned or submitted to lose the title.

Braun Strowman is has the least favorable odds at +700, meaning a successful $100 bet would multiply seven fold to $700. One can only speculate that these underdog odds for the “Monster Among Men” are due to WWE being cautious in building up what could be the first true megastar since John Cena.

These odds will change and can not be considered spoilers at this point. It’s far too early for that.

Will Nakamura Win the WWE Championship at Summerslam? Can He Withstand a MitB Cash In?

The following odds are sourced from 5Dimes. Bets are taken from players worldwide.

The Summerslam Odds Tell a Revealing Story

In a historic encounter, and the first ever television match that has had betting odds, Shinsuke Nakamura has defeated John Cena clean in the middle of the ring on Smackdown to earn the opportunity to challenge WWE Champion Jinder Mahal at Summerslam. Originally, Cena was a slight favorite but began moving in the direction of Nakamura, at one point being a -750 favorite and the sports book projections proved to be accurate yet again.

Now there are already odds by 5Dimes on the Summerslam Championship match, with Nakamura  slightly favored at -160 to Jinder’s +120. As always this does not necessarily mean Shinsuke walks away with the title as a count out or DQ win would not transfer possession of the championship. In fact, the odds on who will walk out as champion still most favor Mahal, even with Shinsuke favored to win the match itself. A screwy finish here would further build Mahal as the “undeserving champion”, while helping Nakamura solidify himself as a top star.

Jinder is at +115 and Shinsuke +165 for being champion at the conclusion of Summerslam. A $100 bet on either would win the number after the plus signs so $115 on a Jinder win and $165 on a Nakamura win. This is because Jinder has better odds so gamblers win less on him because he’s more likely at this point to walk out champion than Shinsuke.

The chance of a Baron Corbin MitB cash in is also possible and the odds on this happening are +295. The odds against a successful cash is -415 so a $415 bet on Baron not being champion after Summerslam would yield only $100 as this likely doesn’t happen at all. This could also be the reason for Nakamura being less likely than Jinder to walk out as champion. Corbin would be more likely to cash in on Shinsuke as opposed to fellow heel Jinder Mahal.

Who is Favored to be WWE Champion After Summerslam, Nakamura Now Slightly Favored over Cena

The following odds are sourced from 5Dimes. Bets are taken from players worldwide.

Can Jinder Mahal Keep the Momentum Through Summerslam

There are currently odds on who will be the WWE Champion at the conclusion of this year’s Summerslam in Brooklyn. The current champion, Jinder Mahal, has the best odds at +195 and this is understandable with Mahal being rumored to in for a long championship reign.

The other three possibilities that have odds are Shinsuke Nakamura, John Cena and Baron Corbin. Nakamura at +215 and John Cena at +230 are very close in the odds, with Nakamura having the slight edge. This is no surprise as the odds for tonight’s Smackdown match between the two men have shifted in favor of Shinsuke. The former New Japan star is favored to beat Cena at -150, with Cena the underdog at +110. This may not seem like a wide margin, and it isn’t, but it’s worth mentioning that yesterday Cena was slightly favored in this match, which has now changed. Cena leaving the Smackdown Brand and heading to RAW after Summerslam is also a relevant detail in both the Smackdown Match and who walks out of Summerslam Champion.

Baron Corbin also has odds set to be WWE Champion at the conclusion of Summerslam at +435. This would involve “The Lone Wolf” cashing in the Money in the Bank briefcase at the event. It is known that WWE is very high on Corbin’s potential, almost all MitB winners have successfully cashed in and Smackdown is in desperate need of building top level star power, especially with Cena leaving the brand at Summerslam.

Who Will Be WWE Champion Immediately Following Summerslam?

Jinder Mahal +195

Shinsuke Nakamura +215

John Cena +230

Baron Corbin +435

Smackdown Match 8/1

John Cena +110 vs Shinsuke Nakamura -150
