The following odds have been sourced by 5Dimes, offering gambling on Pro Wrestling Globally. 

Shocking Odds Shift

A major change has in the Seth Rollins vs Bray Wyatt match at tonight’s Great Balls of Fire PPV(Watch by getting your a free month of the WWE Network). Yesterday Rollins was a -750 favorite and now is an underdog at +535. Bray Wyatt is now favored at -1350. Other than this, definite favorites in the global market have now held on since it was reported Friday that the smart money odds had apparently been in earlier than usually.

Were the smart odds wrong? Was a last minute booking change? Smart money odds have the history of emerging after they’ve hit the global market, but the major shift took place when the odds were only offered in the European market. Rollins vs Wyatt is definitely an outcome that is up in the air because of this.

Huge Favorites in Top Matches

The Global markets had been set on Saturday and they virtually identical to the European odds and the odds widened for the runaway favorites in every match. Brock Lesnar(-2000) is still the heaviest favorite of every performed with listed odds. Someone could win money on Brock Lesnar, but would have to risk $2000 to win only $100. Lesnar’s challenger to his Universal Championship, Samoa Joe(+1000), would be pulling off a huge upset if he manages to beat Brock, even by DQ or Count Out.

The Ambulance match with Braun Strowman(-1320) vs Roman Reigns(+650) still has Braun as the favorite and it’s worth mentioning that the early odds saw Reigns as the projected winner. This complete flip makes me wonder if Roman’s title opportunity at Summerslam is in jeopordy because he would need to remain a strong #1 contender to presumably Lesnar. Defeating Strowman in the Ambulance Match would more than accomplish this.

In other matches:

Big Cass(-1580) is heavily favored to defeat his long time but now former friend tag team partner Enzo Amore (+700).

The Miz(-1425) is expected to retain his Intercontinental Championship against Dean Ambrose(+625)

Tag Team Champions Cesaro & Sheamus(-1275) are projected to retain against The Hardy Boyz(+625) in a 30 minute Iron Man match.

Another champion, Alexa Bliss(-1050) is expected to hang onto the Raw Women’s Championship when Bliss defends against Sasha Banks(+535). Expect Bliss to move on to Nia Jax at Summerslam.

The Cruiserweight Championship match between Neville and Akira Tozawa has no odds as of press time.

Who is Favored to Win Every Match at WWE Great Balls of Fire?

WWE Great Balls of Fire Betting Odds

The following odds are sourced from Paddy Power and while the odds can be followed anywhere in the world, bets are accepted from a limited number of nations including The United Kingdom, Ireland, Channel Islands, Finland, Greece, Japan, New Zealand, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Gibraltar, Malta, Norway, Sweden and the United Arab Emirates. Visit Paddy Power by clicking here.

Early odds for this Sunday’s Great Balls of Fire have been set by European bookmakers and early projections show all the champions except the Tag Champions retaining. However, most of these lines are very close and this goes for all matches on the card with one glaring exception. The exception is the Universal Championship match with Brock Lesnar heavily favored at -1667, which is about 94% chance of winning. Samoa Joe, the challenger, is a +700 underdog, so a $100 bet would yield $700 upon success. Conversely, it would take $1667 just to make $100 on Brock.

Alexa Bliss and The Miz are both projected to retain at -278, while Cesaro and Sheamus are slight underdogs at +125. In the case of Bliss, the obvious build it her vs Nia Jax for SummerSlam, so her walking out as champion is the most sensible outcome looking forward.

Bray Wyatt at -175 is favored to defeat Seth Rollins at this time and Big Cass is favored at -250 to beat Enzo in the first match of their feud. Keep in mind, these are the early odds and they can shift dramatically as well as flip completely in the other direction. Once these matches are offered in the global market, the major shifts start happening even more as more people are placing bets, which moves the line so sports books remain balanced.

Great Balls of Fire Predictions!

Its time for another round of PPV predictions! This time it’s for WWE’s Great Balls of Fire, which is going down in Dallas, TX at the American Airlines Center on July 9th… which also happens to be my birthday. Whether or not I will watch the PPV and cover it live is up in the air as of now, as I may just watch it later on the WWE Network, but non the less, here are my predictions!

Universal Champion Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe: I don’t care. Honestly this could be a death match and they could both be eaten alive by Braun Strowman, and I still would barely blink an eye. These are two of the most boring WWE personalities as of right now… Lesnar will hold onto the belt till SummerSlam at the very least.

Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman (Ambulance Match): While I like watching these two fight, the ambulance match stipulation is fucking stupid. It not a fun gimmicky match, its a predictable one. Now its hard for me to say who will win for sure, as you know WWE is trying to push Reigns, and folks are confused as to what his “tweener” status is… Is he a face, is he a heel? Who the fuck are we rooting for in this match? I think Reigns is capable of a lot more, but frankly the writing sucks, and creative has no idea how to use him. Strowman is a monster, I dig it. He’s scary, he has destroyed half the RAW roster, we totally get it… But to me this match and the Lesner/Joe match are both two similar dudes fighting each other. I’d have rather seen all these guys in a 4 way match, with the stipulation that kicks in the nuts are legal. Then maybe some bals would be on fire!

Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss vs. Sasha Banks: I hate Alexa Bliss, Not because of her character, but because she takes to social media to demean people who have done a lot more than she has in the business, and who if ever got the opportunity would kick the shit out of her. Shes a shitty person, so I hope Sasha Banks hands her her ass, and takes the belt away… Banks all the way,

Seth Rollins vs. Bray Wyatt: Meh… I feel like the writers on RAW just don’t give a fuck anymore. As much as I like Seth Rollins, I just don’t feel any excitement about this match. I am going with Rollins on this one.

WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville vs. Akira Tozawa: Probably the most exciting match on the card, this should be the main event. Tozawa is on fire, and it would be nice to see a title change, not that I think Neville is a bad champ, actually I think he is great. I just think its time to see Tozawa shine.

Who is the ‘Smart Money” Favoring for WWE Payback Tonight?

The following odds are from 5Dimes 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 smart odds appear to be in for WWE Payback tonight. These are very long odds considering we didn’t see lines like this for both Fastlane and Wrestlemania. With odds like this the most likely reason would be insider leaks, however with more people than ever now gambling on WWE this may just be result of who gamblers are backing heavily. Either way, there is always a chance of upsets based on bad information or last minute changes to finishes.

The Hardy Boyz and Bray Wyatt are the most favored out of anyone else on the card. Both Wyatt and the Raw Tag Team Champions have odds of -13500 and this is a 99.01% probability in both matches. While the Hardyz were always heavily favored all along, The early markets had Randy Orton as a heavy favorite to defeat Bray Wyatt. This was puzzling for several reasons. The first being that Randy Orton’s WWE Championship is not on the line. Next is the fact that this is a “House of Horrors” match and while we don’t know exactly what this match is, it is Bray Wyatt’s creation and specialty match so he should probably win this. Finally, due to the Superstar ShakeUp, Bray Wyatt is on the Raw brand. Wyatt winning what is now and interbrand match makes the most sense.

In the case of the Hardyz, these lines could suggest just how serious WWE is about a major run for the Hardyz. Historical booking patterns would usually suggest that those getting beat on TV leading up to PPV end up winning at the PPV. The Hardyz beat their opponents, Cesaro and Shaemus, in singles matches on Raw the past two weeks and yet are graded as underdogs. This is a very interesting anomaly.

As usual, the women’s division are the most volatile in terms of line moves. After being very close, Bayley was just yesterday favored at -4500 but now they’ve flipped completely as it is now Alexa Bliss favored at the same -4500 odds. As always, this does not mean Bliss wins the Raw Women’s Championship, as a DQ or Count Out win is always possible.

Braun Strowman has been favored all along to beat Roman Reigns and now has odds of -5960. The attack on Reigns really raised Strowman’s stock and fans are accepting him as a big deal and these odds are no surprise. Another talent that has been favored from the beginning and held on to it is Seth Rollins favored at -7500 to beat Samoa Joe. This should come as a shock, considering the major plans WWE seems to have for Joe, however good storytelling can turn key losses into a way to further build a character.

Kevin Owen had been heavily favored to retain the United States Championship in a Wrestlemania rematch against Chris Jericho. Now Jericho is favored at -9250 which is also puzzling because Y2J goes on tour with Fozzy very soon. Neville is favored to retain against Austin Aries at -9250.

On the preshow, Enzo Amore and Big Cass are favored to defeat Gallows and Anderson with odds of -7500. The odds can still change leading up to show as bets are being taken right up until the bell rings for each match. Below are the full odds, a minus sign indicates the favorites and the plus symbol for the underdogs. The number after is how favored or unfavored particular competitors are. These odds all fall under “end of broadcast ruling” or “end of preshow ruling” in the case of the preshow tag match. This is to account for when an initial finish is overruled to account for any “Dusty Finish”.

bayley vs alexa bliss wwe payback

WWE Payback Betting Odds Project a Major Title Change

Paddy Power makes bets available only to The UK and Ireland. The odds can still be followed but anyone in the world however.

The betting odds for this Sunday’s Payback have been posted by Paddy Power, a sportsbook available in Ireland and The UK. A possible title change is projected at this point but the lines often change. This becomes more dramatic when odds are offered to the global market later in the week.

Early odds of 4/7(64% probability) see Alexa Bliss winning against Raw Women’s Champion Bayley. This does not necessarily mean Bayley loses the title in the event of a count out or DQ, but the bet would be graded as a win for Bliss. All other champions are currently projected to retain. Kevin Ovens is favored over Chris Jericho for the US Championship, Neville is favored to retain the Cruiserwieght Title against Austin Aries and the Hardyz are projected to retain the Raw Tag Titles against Cesaro and Sheamus.

Braun Strowman has odds of 1/2 ,or a nearly 67% probability. Booking patterns would suggest with the onslaught of abuse Braun has put Roman through that Reigns would get his revenge by beating Strowman in the match. This may not be the case as Braun did suffer a loss in a dumpster match with Kalisto on the go home Raw leading into Payback.

The House of Horrors match has odds favoring Randy Orton at 4/6(60% probability) against Bray Wyatt. This match is Wyatt’s creation, Raw is his home brand and Orton’s WWE Championship isn’t even on the line. A strong case can be made that Wyatt should be favored and the odds on this match could easily flip in the other direction.

Seth Rollins is a 4/9 favorite to defeat Samoa Joe and on the Kick Off Show, Enzo and Big Cass are 4/7 favorites to beat Gallows and Anderson.

royal rumble 2017 eliminations

Who’s Favored to Have The Most Royal Rumble Eliminations?

Other than winning the Royal Rumble itself and clinching a title shot at Wrestlemania, the honor and glory of scoring the most eliminations is the only consolation that can be attained Whoever eliminates the most opponents during the 30 man rumble historically have had bright futures.

Take Diesel in 1994. While he didn’t outright win the rumble, he as a newcomer to the WWE made a name for himself by eliminating 7 men. This is same number of eliminations by another newcomer, Yokozuna who did end up winning the rumble and went on to defeat Bret Hart at Wrestlemania 9 for the WWF Championship.

Dielsel Beats Up Virgil

Kane set a new record at 11 eliminations in 2001 and this record wouldn’t be broken until 2014 by Roman Reigns. Reigns lost that year’s rumble but redeemed himself by winning it all in 2015. Roman would go on to win the WWE Championship 3 times and The United States Title once since then. He is currently set to challenge Kevin Owens for the WWE Universal Championship at this month’s Royal Rumble on the WWE Network.

Based in Ireland, Paddy Power is offering odds on who will eliminate the most opponents and currently the best odds are on Braun Strowman with odds of 1/2. This means a successful $2 bet would yield only $1. That’s how strong this forecast is at the moment. The actual probability would be a 66% chance of Braun throwing the most men out. Strowman also has the best odds and is tied with The Undertaker to win the entire rumble at 3/1, but that’s only a 33% probability as opposed to the 66% to get the most eliminations. The machine is clearly behind Strowman.

Samoa Joe has the second most favorable odds at 5/2, which would be a $2 bet to win $5. Rumors of Joe being fast tracked to a key Wrestlemania match are abound. He isn’t even on the main roster at this point nor has he even been announced as an entrant in the rumble. These odds beg the question of if someone has true, ironclad insider information or the hysteria over the gossip has forced the sportsbook to move the odds to maintain a “balanced book”.

Goldberg is currently at 4/1 and this is a recent sway of the odds as he was at 10/1 as of Sunday. This is the only line that moved as far as most eliminations go.

Baron Corbin is the next most favored at 11/1 and not far behind ties at 10/1 odds are Goldberg, Brock Lesnar and Finn Balor. Like Samoa Joe, Balor is has not been announced for the rumble. Finn is actually still healing from an injury sustained after a barrier bomb by Seth Rollins.

paddy power wwe royal rumble 2017

Here is the full list of odds from Paddy Power. You’ll notice some names that have not been announced for the rumble and a bet and these odds do not guarantee an appearance in the match. This is “All in, Compete or Not” grading. The sportsbook keeps the wager in the event of the wrestler not competing. This is fair because in cases like Samoa Joe, Finn Balor and even Triple H, the speculation is factored into the odds and in some cases driving them.

Braun Strowman 1/2
