Who is Favored by Sports Books When Jinder Mahal Defends Against AJ Styles on Smackdown?


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

UPDATE – Since the odds went slightly in favor of AJ Styles, by the time word got out that there was a title change on RAW last night in Manchester AJ became heavily favored at -900 to Jinder Mahal’s +500. Cesaro and Sheamus becoming tag team champions on a pretaped event showed a willingness by the WWE to have title switch happen knowing spoilers would get out in advance, this could be the reason why the odds went so heavily in AJ’s favor. The long odds didn’t last however, as AJ’s odds decreased overnight. Jinder is now slightly favored at -160 to successfully defend the WWE Championship on Smackdown. There’s no indication that any of this is due to possible leaked finishes, but rather a run from gamblers backing Jinder and getting $5 for every $1 wagered on a possible victory. AJ Styles’ odds are currently +120, meaning a $100 bet upon success would win $120.

There are actually betting odds available for Tuesday’s Smackdown WWE Championship match between defending champion Jinder Mahal and challenger AJ Styles. This isn’t the first time odds makers took on a Smackdown match. This first happened over the Summer when John Cena and Shinsuke Nakamura faced off on television. Cena was favored early on, but Nakamura prevailed.

For Tuesday’s match the initial odds were and even bet, with both Mahal and Styles set at -120. The odds changed almost immediately and AJ is now a slight favorite at -155 to Jinder’s +115. As always, because this is a championship match, this doesn’t mean The Phenomenal One is favored to walk out of Smackdown as Champion due to the “champion’s advantage” of titles not changing hands due to a DQ or count out.

It’s also worth mentioning that The Maharajah has overcome long odds in the past during this championship reign. Another factor to consider is that Jinder is set to face Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series in a “champion vs champion” match. Styles winning the title could change that and some could argue that with AJ having more star power than Jinder, this would make for a more intriguing match and be more of a money draw. On the other hand, WWE is obviously firmly behind Mahal and a win over AJ would only elevate him further.

Once again, these odds are available at 5Dimes, where it’s free to register and no deposit or obligation to place wagers is required for those that simply want to follow the odds and see how they move. Players are accepted all over the world and bets can as low as 50 cents. This particular match is worth following because it could go in any direction. Usually odds close right as the match is starting, however this is being pretaped at the Manchester Arena in England, so these odds are likely to close before Smackdown airs.

Hell in a Cell 2017 Predictions

Hell in a Cell is back! Tonight they are live from the Little Ceasars Arena in Detroit Michigan! At 8 PM EST / 5 PM PST! Betting odds are already out, and the lines are open until bell time on each match! Click here to check out the odds, and place your bets!

Here is the lineup and my thoughts:

Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin vs. The Hype Bros (Kickoff Match) – I am always happy to see Shelton Benjamin. I think this match is going to be a lot of fun to watch. I have a feeling the Hype Bros are going to take this one.

The Fashion Files will return at WWE Hell on a Cell – This is one of the best promo sequences they have done in years. I absolutely love this nonsense.

 

Randy Orton vs. Rusev – I am still sad that they have Lana and Rusev split up. This match has some potential to either be awesome or boring as fuck. I am hoping for the former. Orton will be victorious.

Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler – One of the matches on the card I am looking forward to. Loved the setup on Smackdown Live this week. These guys are going to put on one hell of a match. It’s hard for me to pick a winner on this one. If its pure wrestling ability I have to go with Roode, but knowing how diabolical Ziggler can be its kind of a toss-up. I will stick with Roode on this one.

United States Champion AJ Styles vs. Baron Corbin – Fun fact… my friend is doing cosplay dressed as AJ Styles right now at NYCC. She looks fabulous too. She even got the soccer mom hair to complete the look! I am looking forward to this match as well. Corbin moves incredibly well for a man of his size, AJ has a lot to contend with if he wants to hold onto the US title. I think we may see the title switch hands tonight with Baron Corbin walking away as the new US Champion.

 

SmackDown Women’s Champion Natalya vs. Charlotte Flair – This is going to be awesome. I love both these ladies but as always I am rooting for Natalya!

 

WWE Champion Jinder Mahal vs. Shinsuke Nakamura – Why isn’t this in a cage??? If anything this match NEEDS a cage to keep those bastards the Singh Brothers, out of the match. I was infuriated at the end of Summerslam. Since it’s not in a cage, Mahal may retain the Championship… my heart is still with Nakamura.

 

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day vs. The Usos (Hell in a Cell Match) – The Uso’s seem determined to get the titles back around their waists. The New Day have already proven to be formidable opponents.  We may see a title change, and I say that just due to the sheer ferocity of The Uso’s this week.

 

Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens (Hell in a Cell Falls Count Anywhere Match) – Who will fall off the cage? Who will be put on the injured list for the next 6 months until Wrestlemania? Why would Shane winning this match matter at all? I guess you have to watch tonight to find out! I think Shane is going to take the win tonight.

Betting Odds on Cena vs Nakamura for This Tuesday on Smackdown Live

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

Bet on Cena vs Nakamura on Smackdown

For the first time ever, bets are being taken for a WWE televised match, as opposed to odds only being offered on PPV matches that we have seen in the past. This may become a trend, but for now it’s limited to one match only and it is a match with high stakes. The match being the first ever match between John Cena and Shinuke Nakamura and the states being which competitor goes on to challenge WWE Champion Jinder Mahal at SummerSlam. The match in question will happen live on Smackdown, Tuesday August 1.

Not only are there high stakes in this match, but this is also a much discussed “dream match” that has been discussed ever since Nakamura joined the WWE’s developmental program last year. Once would assume this match would be huge enough to be on PPV itself, and it definitely is. This match is probably drawing more interest than either Cena or Nakamura would challenging Mahal for the championship.

The television ratings as of recent have approached abysmal levels and this match may be designed to be broadcasted live on Smackdown to attempt to correct these low ratings. With sports books taking notice enough to designate odds this is a strong indication that WWE will succeed with this attraction.

Right now John Cena is slightly favored at -145 to Nakamura’s +105. These odds are close and can be looked to as very close to even. To editorialize, the chances of a draw or non-finish leading to both men participating in the SummerSlam match challenging Jinder is a fair, if not likely, prediction. When gambling it must be mentioned that draws or non-finishes result in the bet being canceled and money refunded.

Smackdown Live Results 1/24

Somehow I found myself watching Smackdown Live tonight. Honestly I could not tell you the last time I watched Smackdown, but here goes…

We open with The Miz complaining to Daniel Brian about not having a private locker room…. talk about privilege. Maryse looks nice though, I always dig her outfits. She may very well be the best dressed woman in wrestling, ever.
Daniel Brian tells him he gets his shot at Dean Ambrose tonight, Miz asks for a no DQ match, but DB has a much better idea, a LUMBERJACK MATCH! I like this very much.

Backstage with Randy Orton, he;s asked whats up with him and The Wyatt Family, He says “If you can’t beat them join them”. Weird.

Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Randy Orton make their way to the ring. I don’t get Bray Wyatt, I’ve seen him wrestle plenty, his gimmick is lame and so are his terrible fake dreadlocks. Where is Beefcake when we need him? So Randy Orton is going to fight Luke Harper, apparently this has been brewing for months. Wyatt is at ringside in a rocking chair. They lock up and struggle with each other for control. They do this back and forth, Harper takes a shoulder tackle and powders from the ring. Orton follows, and gets cracked in the ribs by Harper… Harper tosses him back in the ring, and takes control but Orton quickly cuts him off.
Harper get tossed over the top, when he gets back in Orton gives him the DDT. Harper rolls from the ring yet again. Orton chases out of him, gives him  nice backdrop on the barricades, then again on the Spanish announce table, but Harper jumps up and kicks Orton in the face and falls back down. Wyatt gets out of his rocking chair and makes his way over the the action. He picks up Orton and rolls him back into the ring. The count is almost over, but Wyatt throws Harper into the ring as well, just in time.  Oh a mid match commercial break… my least favorite thing! (Hey I am actually liking this match ok?)
We return from break and Harper has Orton in a chokehold in the middle of the ring. Orton works out of it, to only get body slammed. Harper attempts to go to the top, Orton follows him, and gives Harper the superplex off the 2nd rope. Cover by Orton but Harper gets out at the 2 count. More back and forth until Orton powerslams Harper, but again he escapes the pin. Harper gets a michnoku driver on Orton, but Orton kicks out. Orton tried RKO but gets cut off, Harper again almost pins Orton. Harper sets up Orton for some finisher but Orton gets out and gives him the RKO for the 3 count. Wyatt sits and rocks in the chair. Wyatt gets in the ring, helps Harper up. then knocks him out. Poor Luke Harper.

We come back from commercial Renee welcomes Mickie James to the ring. Renee asks Mickie a question, but Mickie starts by talking about her winning the Championship from Trish Stratus, and she is a 5 time champion. Mickie talks about how her accomplishments came way before these women today. That her accomplishments were being buried, but Alexa Bliss was the one person to fight the “Women’s Revolution”. Mickie goes on to talk about how Alexa was the only one to know who she was, and if it wasn’t for her she wouldn’t be standing in the ring right now.  Forget about the revolution this is about Mickie James.  Becky Lynch runs out from the locker room and attacks her but Alexa Bliss runs in from the crowd and attacks Lynch as she chases James.  They then bring Lynch to the ring to further abuse Lynch. Poor Becky. Mickie James grabs the mic again to say something about always being one step ahead.

Returning from the break we are in a store with James Ellsworth and Carmella, shes going to try to get him some clothes… Ellsworth is excited to pick out clothes himself. He comes out wearing acid wash jeans, then a weird sweater, then a lumber jack, then the jeans an a women;s shirt.. sigh. Then Ellsworth Presley, then a pimp, then a red turtleneck. This is ridiculous. Carmella tells him no to all his choices.. She then dresses him like Rob Dyrdek in Gold Lame. eww.

After yet another break we are back, 10 man over the top challenge to get an entry into the match. Don’t expect me to know what is going on here…. The Vaudvillians are out first. then Curt Hawkins, then then, some Victor of Ascension,  then Heath Slater, then Rhyno and Connor. Poor Rhyno. Fandango eliminated by his partner, and Mojo Rawley eliminated Tyler Breeze for the win. Except for Rhyno, and Heath Slater, I have no idea who any of these people are.

Cut to earlier today, an interview with Nikki Bella out by the staging trucks, she gets attacked by Natalya. Yay Nattie kick her ass.

AJ Styles comes to the ring to cut a promo about the Rumble, then John Cena comes to the ring, but AJ refuses to let him speak, then shows a clip from the Today show where John Cena is comparing the match to the super bowl, as its Patriots vs Falcons… A guy from Boston vs A guy from Atlanta. AJ Styles is way madder than I ever remember him. I like him much better this way. He tells Cena no one missed him, crowd starts chanting Cena… Styles said he just didn;t take his space, he replaced him. Ouch. Ok this promo is way too long I don’t care anymore, Cena gets the mic, no idea what he is saying as I am fast forwarding through this… No… Just no. Why can’t we just fight people????

Back from break, Kalisto vs Dolph Ziggler.  Ziggler takes over early in the match but Kalisto cuts him off with his fast paced lucha moves sadly it doesn’t save him from a quick finish. Was that even a 3 count ref? Ziggler talking shit to JBL when Apollo Crews comes out and nails him with a chair. Ha!

The announce team say Natalya is fighting next, but honestly they are some nervy assholes alluding to her state of mental health. Mental health isn’t a joke. I hope Nattie fucks the announcers up more than Nikki Bella at this point.

Back from yet another break, Naomi dances her way to the ring, Natties music hits but instead they cut to Nikki Bella attacking Natalya backstage. Naomi says its not going down like that, shes not leaving until someone steps up to fight her. Alexa Bliss’s music hits, She says shes not out here to answer a challenge from nobody, makes fun of Naomi for not being on tv for 3 months, and asks her who she thinks she is. Naomi, says come down here, she will show her exactly who she is, and that she will be the new champion. Alexa gets on the apron then jumps back down and says Naomi isn’t worth her time. Booo. I hope when Naomi gets her hands on her she kicks her ass.

Time for The Miz vs Dean Ambrose (ICC) for the Intercontinental Championship. Its a lumberjack match so all the other guys on the roster are at ringside, to basically fuck em up,  or throw them back in, either way. The match starts with Ambrose taking lead but it switches up quick. The Miz keeps trying to throw Ambrose to the lumberjacks so he doesn’t have to do the work. Ambrose fights him back, and clotheslines him over the top rope, and the lumberjacks jump him hard, they hate the Miz… and another mid match commercial. WTF. We come back and Miz and Ambrose are on the second rope, nothing good comes of it, and Ambrose ends up getting pulled out of the ring y the lumberjacks, but manages a quick roll up when he gets back int he ring. Ambrose is back outside, thrown back in after a short beating. Miz gets a 2 count. Ambrose is taking a beating, but we seen him come back from worse. Ambrose gets another roll up 2 count on the Miz, Ambrose ends up back outside again, and gives Miz the Lunatic Fringe Elbow from the top, but Miz kicks out. When they both get up Ambrose is fired up he throws the Miz out, and then jumps on him and the limberjacks. Maryse grabs the leg of Ambrose as he tries to get on the ring, and miz gets another 2 count on him. Both men ae down, Ambrose is beat up, takes a couple of big drop kicks from Miz, then dodges the third, Miz to the outside, getting beat by lumberjacks, but Ambrose goes for the elbow on the pile and takes everyone out. Ambrose grabs the Miz, throw him back in the ring, quick in roll up back and forth,  then when Ambrose is about to pin the Miz, the lumberjacks take over the ring beat Ambrose, after the ring is cleared mix tries a quick pin, but it doesn’t work, Ambrose reverses, gives him a finisher, and retains the belt.

Overall it wasn’t bad, just too many commercial breaks. Remember this weekend you can catch the Royal Rumble on the WWE Network!

La Luchadora Revealed!

via WWE

SmackDown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss and Becky Lynch made history with a Steel Cage Match for the title in the main event.

The two Superstars did not hold back, delivering an instant classic for Team Blue. The pendulum of momentum swung back and forth several times over, but, in the final moments, it seemed as though The Irish Lass Kicker was closing in on victory as she began to escape from the cage. Yet, her descent out of the cage was stopped as La Luchadora reared her head again, kicking Lynch in the head after applying the Dis-arm-her to Bliss. This allowed Bliss to connect with her patented DDT and retain the SmackDown Women’s Championship.

After the match, Bliss and La Luchadora continued their beat down on Lynch, until Lynch was able to find an opening and unmask La Luchadora to reveal none other than Mickie James! Bliss and James then got the best of Lynch again before James raised Bliss’ hand in victory after they felt the damage was sufficiently done.
