Brie Bella's 5Dimes FastLane Odds Cut

It has been nearly a day since I first noticed the 5Dimes Sportsbook had published more betting markets for next week's WWE FastLane 2016 PPV, so I have returned with a short update.

The only wrestler the sportsbook's clients have backed in this period of time is Brie Bella.

The challenger to Charlotte's WWE Divas Championship has had her odds trimmed from +280 to +220. As a result, the titleholder's price has somewhat improved moving from -400 to -300.

As a guess, I suspect Bella has been backed by wrestling fans who believe that there's the possibility she'll be awarded a win as a dedication to her husband - Daniel Bryan - who was forced to retire from pro wrestling earlier this week. If she does bring something like this up on Monday's episode of Raw, watch this price plummet.

I had suggested Brie Bella would win in this manner in a previous post and have bet on her myself. However, it should be noted that a Bella title win will cause a diversion from a planned WrestleMania match involving any or all of a combination of Charlotte, Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks.

All other 5Dimes FastLane odds remain as they were yesterday. They are:

Roman Reigns -530
The Field .vs. Reigns +350
Brock Lesnar +550
Dean Ambrose +800

Kalisto -230
Alberto Del Rio +170

Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks -400
Naomi and Tamina +280

I'll return later on today to see if anything has changed.

Odds correct as of 10am GMT. For the latest, check out the betting board at 5Dimes.com.

Ladbrokes' FastLane 2016 Odds Published

Ladbrokes.com is the latest sports betting website to publish betting odds for next week's WWE Fastlane 2016 pay-per-view.

Customers of the popular sportsbook can bet on the four matches that have already been announced for the show. In this post, I'll share with you the prices that are on offer.

Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks are short-priced favourites to win the tag team match against Naomi and Tamina. The babyfaces are 1/4 while the two remaining members of Team BAD are 5/2.

In the other ladies' match of the night, Charlotte is also a 1/4 favourite. Her opponent - Brie Bella - is 5/2.

WWE US Champion - Kalisto - is 2/5 to retain his title with a win over Alberto Del Rio. A winning punt on the challenger will pay out at odds of 7/4.

This is the best price for Del Rio. As of the time of posting, he's available at EVENS at other sportsbooks.

Roman Reigns is a heavy favourite in main event betting.

He's 2/11 to defeat both Brock Lesnar (5/1) and Dean Ambrose (10/1).

If you're in the party of bettors that believes Dean Ambrose is winning here - and there are some -Ladbrokes is offering the value odds as he's shorter elsewhere (as of the time of publishing).

Odds are correct as of 10:30pm GMT and can be viewed by following this link to Ladbrokes' WWE Betting Page.

Brock Lesnar 'Suplex City' Betting Markets For FastLane 2016

The oddsmakers at 32Red.com have published Brock Lesnar-themed markets for next weekend's WWE Fast Lane 2016 PPV.

The first market gives the customer the opportunity to wager on how many suplexes Brock Lesnar delivers on the night. The line has been set at 19.5. 'Over' has been given odds of EVENS while the 'Under' is 18/25.

I think the under is the way to go with the line that high.

Prop Number two asks the customer to punt on how many suplexes Lesnar delivers to Dean Ambrose on the night.

The line has been set at 11.5 with both 'Over' and 'Under' available at 17/20 each.

As you've probably guessed - there's also a market where you can bet on how many times Lesnar suplexes Roman Reigns on the night.

This one has the line set at 9.5. Once again, the odds for both 'Over' and 'Under' have been set at 17/20 apiece.

Finally, there's an offering where customers can bet on Lesnar suplexing  a list of names like Braun Strowman, Bray Wyatt and Vince McMahon to name a few. I have inserted an image below to show what they're offering.

As the market states - the selections have 'To Be Suplexed At Least Once By Brock Lesnar During The Event'. The Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns option is intriguing, but I think the 'No' is the likely result.

I like 'Any member of the Wyatt Family', though. I can see either Luke Harper or Erick Rowan taking a suplex before Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman take control to cost Brock Lesnar the match. 

They're listed under 'Suplex City' on the WWE page over at the 32Red Sportsbook.

New FastLane Markets From 5Dimes

The 5Dimes Sportsbook has added more markets for next weekend's WWE Fast Lane 2016 PPV.

Customers can now wager on all three participants in the main event as well as on the undercard matches.

The main event has market has been open since late January. However, when it was first installed, clients could only back 'Roman Reigns' or 'The Field' to win the triple threat match. 

If you'd like to bet on Brock Lesnar or Dean Ambrose, you can back them at +550 or +800 respectively. Roman Reigns is favourite with a line of -530. A punt on 'The Field .vs. Roman Reigns' will pay out at +350 if either Ambrose or Lesnar walks away with the W.

The US Championship match market was one of the earliest to go up last night. I caught Kalisto at -180 and Alberto Del Rio +140. This market has seen action in the past thirteen hours. Kalisto's odds have shortened to -230 and his challenger is +170.

Charlotte is -400 to successfully retain the WWE Divas Championship with a win over Brie Bella. A winning punt on Bella will pay out at odds of +280.

The ladies' tag team match of the night is also showing odds of -400 and +280. The babyface duo of Becky Lynch & Sasha Banks are the favourites while the final two members left from Team Bad are the outsiders.

Odds correct as of 1pm GMT and are available under 'Other Sports' on the betting board at 5Dimes.com.

Betfair Add More Fast Lane Markets

The Betfair Sportsbook has added more WWE FastLane match markets to its coverage at Betfair.com.

Customers can now wager on the undercard bouts that have been announced for next Sunday's PPV.

The tag team of Sasha Banks & Becky Lynch has been installed as 1/4 favourites to defeat the team of Naomi and Tamina (5/2).

In the other female match of the night - WWE Divas Champion, Charlotte, is 3/10 to retain her title with a win over Brie Bella. A winning bet on the challenger will pay out at odds of 11/5.

The US Championship market has opened with Kalisto 8/11 to keep his strap over Alberto Del Rio. The former champ is EVENS to pick up the win here.

The main event market has been available since late January. As of the time of publishing, Roman Reigns is 1/4, Brock Lesnar is 3/1 and Dean Ambrose is 11/2.

Odds are correct as of 11:30pm GMT and can be viewed under 'Special Bets' on the sportsbook menu at Betfair.com.

Unibet Puts Up More FastLane 2016 Markets

A short while ago, I noted that Bwin has installed odds for some of the FastLane 2016 undercard bouts. The firm isn't the only one as Unibet.com has done the same.

Customers can wager on not only the Divas and US Championship matches - they can also punt on a tag match that is scheduled for the night.

Charlotte is 1/4 to retain her Divas Championship against Brie Bella. A win for Bella will pay out at odds of 5/2. As of the time of publishing, Bwin.com is offering the best price on Bella as she's 7/2 there.

WWE US Champion, Kalisto, is 3/5 to retain his title with a win over Alberto Del Rio. The challenger is EVENS.

Becky Lynch & Sasha Banks are short-priced faves to defeat Team BAD. They're 1/5 while the duo made up of Tamina and Naomi are 3/1.

The main event odds were first published at the end of January. The current prices are as follows:

Roman Reigns 1/4
Brock Lesnar 13/4
Dean Ambrose 6/1

The markets can be found under 'WWE' at Unibet.com and also 888Sport.com and 32Red.com.

Bwin Installs Two More FastLane Markets

The oddsmakers at bwin.com have installed two more match markets for next week's WWE Fast Lane PPV.

Customers can now bet on the US and Divas Championship deciders.

US Champion, Kaliso, has been given 73/100 to win over former titleholder, Alberto Del Rio. A winning bet on Del Rio will pay out at even money.

Brie Bella is a 7/2 outsider to win the Divas Championship match against Charlotte. The present champ is available at 4/25.

I'm intrigued to see if Bella will be given an emotional win over Charlotte after this week's episode of Raw which saw her husband, Daniel Bryan, retire.

It would send things in a different direction as WrestleMania is likely going to see Sasha Banks and/or Becky Lynch challenge Charlotte for the Divas Championship. With weeks between Fast Lane and WrestleMania - and a disqualification out if they want to keep the title with Charlotte - a Bella victory should not be ruled out. Not after this week.

The firm published main event odds weeks ago. Roman Reigns is 33/100, Brock Lesnar is 4/1 and Dean Ambrose is 9/2 to secure a WWE World Heavyweight Championship shot against HHH.

Odds are correct as of 3pm GMT. They can be found alongside other WWE-themed markets in the 'Entertainment' section of bwin.com.

CM Punk A 2/1 Underdog To Win His First UFC Fight

The Coral Sportsbook has installed odds for the upcoming UFC bout between Mickey Gall and CM Punk.

Gall has been given a price of 4/11 while the former pro wrestler is a 2/1 underdog.

Click image to expand

The bookmaker has 'Saturday July 9th' next to the fighters. This is the date of UFC 200. The fight - however - has not been confirmed for this date. There are also rumours to suggest it will be a part of the UFC 199 card a month earlier.

Odds and information correct as of 11:30pm GMT on February 9th. Coral's MMA/UFC odds can be found at Coral.co.uk.

5Dimes' FastLane 2016 Odds For February 9th

The odds for the main event of WWE Fast Lane 2016 have fallen in favour of Roman Reigns since last night's episode of WWE Raw aired.

The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion's price went from -530 to -600 since I last checked in with the match market at 5Dimes.com.

As a result of the change, 'The Field versus Roman Reigns' is now +400: an improvement from the +350 that a win by Dean Ambrose or Brock Lesnar was being offered yesterday.

Raw saw both Ambrose and Lesnar have moments of weakness. The punters have probably figured it might be Roman Reigns' turn on the go home episode as a way to set up a return to form six days later.

Odds correct as of 11pm GMT and are available under 'Other Sports' on the betting board at 5Dimes.com.

I last recorded the prices a couple of days ago. Back then, the 'Roman Reigns wins Triple Threat Match' selection was -565 and 'Field wins..' was +375. 

I'll return sometime tomorrow with another update to see if anything on tonight's episode of Raw prompts any reaction in price.

Odds correct as of 10pm GMT. They can be found under 'Other Sports' on the 5Dimes website.
