Wrestlemania 33 Betting Odds, Who is Favored to Win?

The following European Market odds are from Paddy Power. Wagers are not available from all countries. Visit Paddy Power by clicking here

The European market has released odds for most of the matches for this year’s Wrestlemania in Orlando. These lines can be used to determine early projections for who will be victorious at the “Show of Shows”. A quick and easy explanation if you are unaware of how to interpret these lines is that a bet on the number to the right of the forward slash would win the number on the left. If the number on the left is larger than that of the right, this indicates the underdog and vice versa for the favorite. For example Universal Champion Goldberg is an underdog at 6/1 currently so a successful $1 would win $6. Brock Lesnar, who is challenging Goldberg, is a favorite at 1/16 with a $16 bet winning only $1. that’s how favored Brock is right now. This could change.

The current projected winners for Mania are the aforementioned Lesnar, Randy Orton, Bayley, Kevin Owens, Gallows & Anderson, Roman Reigns, John Cena & Nikki Bella, AJ Styles and Seth Rollins. The Cruiserweight Championship have both Neville and Austin Aries is in a dead heat with both at 6/5 and this will settle in one direction or the other soon enough. The Andre the Giant Battle Royal have had lines available for a while and Braun Strowman has been favored all along to win it. No odds are available for The Smackdown Women’s Championship as of press time.

Once again these are the European odds and American odds will be available as we get closer to the event. For updates on when this happens please subscribe for updates.

Odds on Daniel Bryan Going to NJPW, ROH, Impact and Wrestling Again in WWE

The following European Market odds are from Paddy Power. Wagers are not available from all countries. Visit Paddy Power by clicking here.

Bryan’s Next Move

Much buzz has been created by the Daniel Bryan teasing that he will be wrestling again outside of the WWE next year when his contract runs out. There are actually odds on what promotion Daniel Bryan will return to the ring in. The most favorable odds are on him signing with NJPW by the end of 2018, a promotion in Japan he has expressed interest in. The current odds are 11/10, however yesterday’s odds had been 11/8 meaning many are taking the bet and feel it is a legit possibility. The line moved in a more favorable direction and is very close to an even bet because of this.

Bets may also be made on if he will appear in TNA Impact Wrestling by the end of 2018 at 10/1, which would multiply your money tenfold if he shows up in TNA even once. This would be a great boost for the restructured promotion but the odds say it won’t happen. Not surprisingly Daniel has much better odds to return to ROH, the promotion where he first made a name for himself and caused him to be noticed by the WWE. The odds of this happening before the end of 2018 are 9/4.

There are even odds on Bryan wrestling at least one match in WWE by the end of this year at 7/1. This gives Bryan a 12.5% chance of wresting by the end of the year. The situation is that he wants to wrestle but WWE will not allow him to due to his previous injuries. He is extremely frustrated about not being able to continue his passion of performing in from on live crowds and has teased going elsewhere in the past. There has also been an ongoing rivalry between The Miz and Bryan over different styles of wrestling and Bryan no longer wrestling while Miz is thriving near the top of the card.

One element that is worth mentioning is the fact that not only is Daniel Bryan married to Brie Bella, but also that they are expecting the birth of their daughter who they have already been named “Birdie Joe”. Brie has also expressed wanting more children so Bryan needs to consider that WWE is a more secure way to provide for the family he is building with Brie. His safety is also an issue and he is in such perilous condition that, as mentioned, the WWE will not let him wrestle because of this. If it were to happen, expect Bryan to return to using the name  “American Dragon” Brian Danielson due to intellectual property rights over the Daniel Bryan name.

wwe fastlane results

Three Major Upsets at WWE Fastlane. Who Overcame the Odds?

Sports books that offer pro wrestling wagers were way off in setting the lines for Fastlane with 3 upsets and some lopsided odds that were overcome. This was not expected. Major news websites have labeled the prior odds as spoilers and this incidentally wasn’t how the outcomes played out this time around.

Nia Jax was a -1700 favorite prior to the match with Sasha Banks and while Nia dominated, Sasha was able to draw from her reserve and find a way to win. This is the first upset of 2017. Sasha was actually the original sports book favorite and this quickly shifted in favor of Jax.

Braun Strowman favored at -1200 also turned out to be an overvalued line and the underdog Roman Reigns managed to give Strowman his first pinfall loss. The long odds on Strowman was driven by the prop bets in the Euro Market for the Undertaker to interfere and cost Reigns the match. Favored to appear at ringside, Taker was no where to be seen at Fastlane.

Charlotte, with a perfect record on PPV was at one point favored at -1750. The day of Fastlane those lines moves with Charlotte being only a slight underdog at -160. A non-finish was speculated on because of this, but instead Bayley retained her championship, broke Charlotte Flair’s PPV streak and overcame the odds.

This makes the pro wrestling betting more volatile and unpredictable going into Wrestlemania and it should be interesting to see if these regular upsets will become more frequent again.

Three Major Upsets at WWE Fastlane!

Sports books that offer pro wrestling wagers were way off in setting the lines for Fastlane with 3 upsets and some lopsided odds that were overcome. This was not expected.

Bayley vs Charlotte

WWE Fastlane “Smart Money Odds” and Projected Winners, Non Finish in Championship Match?

The following odds are from 5 Dimes and represent the American Market. Currently Mastercard, American Express and Bitcoins are being accepted for deposits. Bets can be made for as low as 50 cent although there is never an obligation to place a wager or make a deposit to view and follow the ever changing odds. Visit 5Dimes by clicking here.

The current odds for WWE Fastlane at this time can be considered “projected outcomes” or “smart money odds” and while there are long odds on some of the matches, many are much closer. In particular, the Raw Women’s Championship is so close this could end being a no contest. At the most recent WWE Pay Per View, Nikki Bella and Natalya in a double count out. The sports book taking these wagers canceled the bet and refunds were issued. This is how issues like this are handled. Charlotte is slightly favored at -160 but at one point was heavily favored at -1750. Charlotte Flair’s streak of being undefeated on PPV is believed by many to end at Wrestlemania next month for a Mania moment and a non-finish here would not contaminate Charlotte’s current streak. The cruiserweight tag of Swann and Tozawa vs Kendrick and Dar is very close and this is because it’s a pre-show match and not much money was put on it compared to the Women’s Championship.

The Raw Tag champs of Gallows and Anderson are favored to retain -560 and the challengers Enzo and Cass are rumored to have the big title win at Wrestlemania in Orlando where they spent so much time in NXT. Neville is also favored to retain his championship at -615 in the cruiserweight division.

The heaviest odds favorites are Goldberg at -2000 to beat Kevin Owens. Originally an underdog in the early lines, Nia Jax is favored at -1700 to win against Sasha Banks. Early bets on Nia could end up paying off and these early bets are what has driven Nia’s favorablility.

At -1625, Samoa Joe is thought of as a lock to beat Sami Zayn and Braun Strowman is at -1200 to beat Roman Reigns. Some sports books are also offering odds of 1/2(67%) that the Undertaker will interfere in Roman vs Braun. The speculation driving this is that this will be to further set up Roman vs Taker at Wrestlemania

There are separate lines available for “initial ruling” and “end of broadcast” grading. The initial ruling grading was just added and as of know both sets of lines are identical and any significant variance that emerges would suggest a “Dusty Finish” would happen. Keep an eye on these and these lines can be followed by anyone.

WWE Universal Championship

Kevin Owens(c) +1000 vs Goldberg -2000

WWE Raw Women’s Championship

Bayley(c) +120 vs Charlotte Flair -160

WWE Raw Tag Team Championship

Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson(c) -560 vs Enzo Amore & Big Cass +370

WWE Cruiserweight Championship

Neville -615 vs Jack Gallagher +405

Roman Reigns +600 vs Braun Strowman -1200 (Undertaker has odds of -200 to show up at ringside)

Sami Zayn +775 vs Samoa Joe -1625

Sasha Banks +800 vs Nia Jax -1700

Rich Swann & Akira Tozawa -215 vs The Brian Kendrick & Noam Dar +165
