A Solution For Accumulator Bettors

A visitor has asked me whether I know of any bookmakers that are accepting accumulators on tonight's pay-per-view. The question was asked because Paddy Power isn't allowing it for this month at least.

My best answer is to direct you to a post I published in September last year, when I noted it's possible to place multiples at 5Dimes.com

With only 5Dimes, Sky Bet and Paddy Power offering WWE TLC 2014 markets, it's the only option this month.

Dean Ambrose Swings Into Favouritism

Dean Ambrose has become favourite to win the tables, ladders and chairs match against Bray Wyatt tonight.

The wrestler, who had been an underdog for the majority of the time the lines have been up at 5Dimes.com, is now priced at -260 (1.38 EU, 5/13 UK) - a shift from the +135 he was three hours ago.

Bray Wyatt has moved from -175 to +180 (2.80 EU, 9/5 UK).

Sky Bet customers can now wager on the Tables, Ladders, Chairs.. & Stairs pre-show tag team match after the bookmaker added the bout to its wrestling betting page.

The New Day have opened as 1/8 favourites with their opponents, Gold & Stardust, chalked up as 9/2 outsiders.

Ladbrokes Will Not Be Offering WWE TLC 2014 Odds

Earlier today, I noted that a member of Ladbrokes customer service had told me that the company might be offering odds for tonight's WWE Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2014 this afternoon.

After waiting until 4pm GMT, I got back in touch and was told that the decision has been made not to publish odds for tonight's event.

I'm unsure how this affects future PPVs.

Ladbrokes Possibly Publishing WWE TLC 2014 Betting Odds This Afternoon

I have been in touch with Ladbrokes.com customer services to see whether the company intends to publish betting markets for tonight's WWE TLC pay-per-view and it appears that they could be up later this afternoon.

The bookmaker tends to publish its World Wrestling Entertainment lines on pay-per-view Sunday afternoons, so this is the norm.

When they are up, they'll be available on the main Ladbrokes Sportsbook page.

5Dimes' WWE TLC 2014 Betting Odds As Of 10AM GMT

With WWE Tables, Ladders, Chairs.. & Stairs taking place tonight, I have made a morning scour of the pay-per-views betting odds available on the 5Dimes Sportsbook's website.

Here are the prices for each match along with some notes on overnight changes.

The New Day (-390) .vs. Gold & Stardust (+270)

The market for this pre-show match opened two evenings ago with The New Day favoured with a price of -140. The bettors haven't considered any result other than a New Day victory.

Rusev (-4,500) .vs. Jack Swagger (+1,500)

Rusev started off as a strong -1,500 to win and retain his US Championship. Just like the above match, the bettors have been lumping on the Bulgarian and have taken no consideration on a Swagger win.

Luke Harper (+190) .vs. Dolph Ziggler (-270)

When the market opened for the ladder match, both wrestlers were given -120 odds. The sportsbook leaving it in the hands of its customers to decide an outsider and favourite saw the two sides go back and forth in the betting. On my initial observation of the market yesterday morning, both had returned to -120. Since then, however, Harper has began to drift out.

Ryback (-900) .vs. Kane (+500)

The chairs match has seen the least activity. Both have been stuck on these prices since their odds went live on Wednesday evening.

The Miz & Damien Mizdow (-900) .vs. The Usos (+500)

Another -900 .vs. +500 match-up. The current WWE Tag Team Champions had opened at around -600. Despite a day where The Usos' odds dropped slightly, it appears the bettors have been favouring Miz & Mizdow. Their odds have remained the same since yesterday night.

Erick Rowan (-215) .vs. The Big Show (+165)

Rowan started off -230 in the market for the steel stairs match. He then went to -270 and spent most of the time there. When I had a look last night, his odds had gone into -160 pointing to the Saturday bettors taking Show's odds (they had dropped from +190 to +120). It's clear that Rowan has now become the bettors' choice once more.

John Cena (-900) .vs. Seth Rollins (+500)

This match completes the trifecta of -900 .vs. +500 bouts. The two have remained at these prices since yesterday evening. It's worth noting they had opened at -900 .vs. +500. However, the early money had moved Rollins to around +320 before he started drifting back out to +500.

Dean Ambrose (+170) .vs. Bray Wyatt (-230)

The tables, ladders & chairs match has been a back-and-forth affair since the market opened with Ambrose a -140 favourite and Wyatt at +105. At 10pm GMT last night, Ambrose was +250 with Wyatt -350. The change signifies that Ambrose was the Saturday night bettors' choice.

Rusev Heavily Backed In Saturday Afternoon WWE TLC 2014 Betting & More

WWE United States Champion, Rusev, has been the Saturday bettors' favourite in Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2014 betting at 5Dimes.com.

The wrestler, who will defend his title against Jack Swagger on tomorrow night's pay-per-view, has seen his price shorten from -1,500 to -4,500 (1/45 UK) over the day.

With Rusev evidently popular with the betting public, Jack Swagger's price has increased from +700 to +1,500 (16.00 EU, 15/1 UK).

Here's a brief rundown of where the money has been landing through the day:
  • Nikki Bella's odds on winning the WWE Divas Championship bout of the evening have gone from -350 to -530
  • The New Day's price is now -230. It had been -215.
  • The Big Show has been backed in the betting on steel stairs match between he and Erick Rowan. Show has dropped from +190 to +120
  • The Miz & Damien Mizdow are now -900, but had been -600 
  • John Cena, who had been -460, is now -900. This is the price he had been when the market opened at the start of the week
  • Dean Ambrose has been backed down from a +340 underdog to +250
  • Luke Harper and Dolph Ziggler were both -120 this morning. As of the time of publishing, Ziggler's price has moved to -190 with Harper drifting out to +150
There has been no change at all in the Ryback versus Kane market. Kane remains a +500 outsider with Ryback -900.

Odds correct as of 10pm GMT this evening and taken from the 'Other Sports' section of the 5Dimes Sportsbook.

Paddy Power Publishes WWE Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2014 Betting Odds

WWE Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2014 betting odds are now up at PaddyPower.com.

The Irish bookmaking firm is accepting wagers on all of the matches scheduled to take place on the main card.

Erick Rowan has opened as a 2/5 favourite to win the steel stairs match against The Big Show. Punters looking for an upset can get Show at 7/4.

Divas Champion, Nikki Bella, is a best price 1/3 to win and retain her title against AJ Lee (2/1).

Rusev is a short 1/10 to win the WWE US Championship fixture against his challenger Jack Swagger (5/1).

Kane is a 4/1 underdog in the steel chair match against Ryback (1/7).

WWE Tag Team Champions - The Miz and Damien Mizdow - have opened as 2/7 favourites to leave the event with their belts. The Usos are 9/4.

Dolph Ziggler and Luke Harper are fairly close in the market for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Ziggler gets the nod at 4/6 with Harper 11/10.

John Cena is a 1/6 shot to win the tables match against Seth Rollins. Rollins backers can find him priced at 7/2.

Finally, Dean Ambrose is a 5/4 underdog to win the tables, ladders & chairs match against Bray Wyatt (4/7).

It's worth noting that the WWE TLC 2014 book is set to close just before the pay-per-view starts on Monday morning (1am GMT). The company usually has the odds taken down two hours before each event, so it'll be interesting to see if they remain open beyond 11pm tomorrow.

Prices correct as of 3:55pm GMT. For the latest, head over to Paddy Power's WWE Page.

No Change In Sky Bet's WWE TLC 2014 Markets

There has been no change in WWE Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2014 wagering at SkyBet.com since the markets for tomorrow night's event were published yesterday.

Here's how they are as of 3:20pm GMT today:

These markets can be viewed on Sky Bet's WWE Betting Page

Sky Bet and 5Dimes are the only betting firms offering TLC 2014 betting opportunities at this moment. I'll post updates if or when other companies publish prices.

Friday Night's WWE Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2014 Betting At 5Dimes

There is a mixed bag of results when it comes to looking at how the WWE Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2014 betting odds changed between 11pm Friday and 9:30am GMT this morning.

Firstly, there was no change at all in a number of match markets that are available at the 5Dimes Sportsbook.

The steel stairs match prices remain as they were three days ago. Erick Rowan is still a -270 (1.37 EU, 10/27 UK) favourite to win. Big Show is +190 (2.90 EU, 19/10 UK).

Kane continues to be a +500 underdog to win the chairs match between he and Ryback. The Big Guy is -900 (1/9 UK).

When I checked in with the sportsbook yesterday night, Rusev's odds to successfully defend the US Championship against Jack Swagger had drifted from -2,000 to -1,500 (1/15 UK). On the other side of the market - Swagger had dipped from +1000 (10/1 UK) in to +700 (7/1 UK). These prices have remained stationary since that time.

The Miz & Damien Mizdow were -600 (1/6 UK) to win their WWE Tag Team Championship defence against The Usos (+400 US, 5.00 EU, 4/1 UK). This market also hasn't moved since yesterday night.

The rest of the card has seen action.

The New Day vs Gold & Stardust odds, which were released yesterday, had the newer tag team as -140 favourites. The Friday night bettors wagered on them moving the line to -215 (1.47 EU, 20/43 UK). Their opponents have obviously drifted going from +100 to +165 (2.65 EU, 33/20 UK).

AJ Lee appears to be the bettors' pick to win the WWE Divas Championship bout against Nikki Bella. 

The challenger has seen her price drop from the +325 she had been since Thursday evening. She's now +250 (3.50 EU, 5/2 UK). Nikki Bella's odds are now -350 (1.29 EU, 2/7 UK) after being -475 earlier in the week.

Earlier this week, the Intercontinental Championship ladder match had opened with both Luke Harper and his challenger, Dolph Ziggler, given -120. The early stages of betting saw Harper favoured until late on Thursday when money started coming in on Ziggler. 

This balancing act has continued as both wrestlers are back to their original -120 (1.83 EU, 5/6 UK) lines.

Seth Rollins' price continues to drop in betting on the tables match.

He had originally been cast as a +500 underdog. He is now down to +320 (4.20 EU, 16/5 UK) after being stuck on +350 from Thursday.

John Cena has gone from -900 to -460 (1.22 EU, 5/23 UK) since open.

The most significant change that has occurred in WWE TLC 2014 betting so far has been in the market for the tables, ladders & chairs match.

On Tuesday morning, Dean Ambrose was a -145 favourite. His foe, Bray Wyatt, had been chalked up at +105. By late Thursday, Ambrose had become the underdog. 

Since last night, his price has gone from +140 to +340 (4.40 EU, 17/5 UK). Wyatt's role as favourite has strengthened moving from -180 to -510 (1.20 EU, 10/51 UK).

I am particularly keen to see what happens with this market as I suspect Bray Wyatt going from underdog to favourite has something to do with the betting public knowing about the result of this coming Wednesday's Tribute to the Troops special. Whether this will play into the plans for Sunday is another thing, though.

As of 11pm GMT, the odds for the bout are:

The New Day -140 US, 1.71 EU, 5/7 UK
Gold & Stardust +100 US, 2.00 EU, EVENS UK

WWE Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2014 Odds Now Up At SkyBet.com

WWE fans can now wager on this Sunday's WWE Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2014 pay-per-view at SkyBet.com.

The company posted odds for the event this morning. Here's how they opened:

Nikki Bella is a 1/4 favourite to successfully retain the WWE Divas Championship against AJ Lee (11/4).

Erick Rowan is a strong 2/5 to win the steel stairs match against The Big Show. If you're looking for the heel to secure victory, you can find him chalked up at 7/4.

Kane has been given a 4/1 shot to win the chairs match against Ryback (1/7).

Rusev is a heavy 1/12 to do away with Jack Swagger (6/1) in the US Championship bout of the evening.

WWE Tag Team Champions - The Miz & Damien Mizdow - will retain their titles, if the oddsmakers are right. They have been given 2/7 with The Usos as 5/2 challengers.

Dolph Ziggler is 4/6 to wrest the Intercontinental Championship in the ladder match against current titleholder - Luke Harper (11/10).

John Cena is 1/5 to win against Seth Rollins (100/30). Should Cena lose this match, he will lose his chance to contend for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, so it's not surprising he has been given a short odds.

The Tables, Ladders & Chairs match market between Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt sees the heel given the role of a 4/7 favourite. Ambrose is closely priced at 5/4.

These markets are set to close at 1am GMT on Sunday.

Prices correct as of 10:45am GMT. For the latest, check out Sky Bet's WWE Betting Page.  

Dolph Ziggler & Bray Wyatt Favoured To Win At WWE TLC 2014

Dolph Ziggler and Bray Wyatt have moved into the role of favourite in their respective betting markets for this Sunday's WWE Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2014 pay-per-view.

When odds for the event were initially published late Tuesday, both Ziggler and his opponent - WWE Intercontinental champion, Luke Harper were given -120 prices.

The earlier round of betting appeared to go the way of the champion as the challenger's price started to drift out before starting its descent late Wednesday or early Thursday.

Ziggler is now available at -150 (1.67 EU, 4/6 UK), a price he has remained at since late yesterday evening. On the other side of the market - Harper is +110 (2.10 EU, 11/10 UK).

The Dean Ambrose versus Bray Wyatt bout market started off with Ambrose at around -145 and Wyatt +105. However, once spoiler results for this Wednesday's Tribute to the Troops special came out, it appeared that wrestling fans took speculative punts on Wyatt winning on Sunday.

His odds went from the +105 to -110 within a day. Ambrose, on the other hand, remained in favouritism but went from -145 to -130.

As of yesterday evening, the Ambrose price has drifted out to +135 (2.35 EU, 27/20 UK) with his nemesis now -175 (1.57 EU, 4/7 UK). These odds have remained stationary throughout Thursday night and into this morning.

These price shifts are in no way a signal of anything other than fans and bettors punting on who they think will win on Sunday.
