MITB Cash-In At Battleground 2017 Odds

With Randy Orton's odds to win the WWE Championship inside the Punjabi prison cage match at Battleground dropping this afternoon, I thought I'd look at some specials that were published by Kambi earlier today to see if any customers had backed a Money in the Bank cash-in during the pay-per-view.

There were three markets installed for cash-ins. One covered 'Any' of the briefcases to be cashed in during the show, the other focused on Carmella's briefcase and the third was all about Baron Corbin's contract.

The option to back 'Any Briefcase' to be cashed in opened at even money. As of 4pm BST today, the option is still showing at this price.

A cash-in by Baron Corbin during the PPV opened at 7/4. There must have been some interest in this market - albeit slight - as the selection has been lowered to 6/4.

For what it's worth, I had entertained the thought of Randy Orton defeating Jinder Mahal for the title only for Baron Corbin to cash in his contract. The idea came to me a few days ago when I was thinking of something for the William Hill Battleground Specials Request Post. With that said, I don't believe that the favouring of Orton this afternoon means anything at this point despite how far Orton's price has plummeted.

As for the women's Money in the Bank - the odds for this have stayed at 3/1. It isn't surprising considering Naomi isn't booked to wrestle on the show. When the day comes, I expect the women's cash-in to occur immediately after a title match.


New Observer Star Rating Odds For Battleground 2017 And More

Kambi's oddsmakers have added more Wrestling Observer Newsletter star rating prop bets to their markets for tomorrow night's WWE Battleground 2017 pay-per-view.

The over-under markets allow customers to predict how Dave Meltzer will rate tomorrow's matches when he reviews the event in the upcoming issue of his newsletter.

A couple of markets were published a few weeks ago. They were for the Flag match and WWE World Championship bout.

In this post, I'll look at the new markets and point out how the odds have changed in the two markets that had been available before today.

Tye Dillinger .vs. Aiden English
The traders have set the line for the pre-show match at 1.25 stars. The 'Over' and 'Under' are both available at 17/20 as of the time of publishing.

Fatal 5-Way
Tomorrow's fatal 5-way match to find a number one contender to the WWE Smackdown Women's Championship has a line of 2 stars. Just like above, the two selections to go higher or lower are 17/20 each.

Sami Zayn .vs. Mike Kanellis
The line for Sami Zayn's bout against his current nemesis, Mike Kanellis, has been set at 2.75. If you believe it will get two-and-three-quarters or more, the oddsmakers will pay out at 9/10. If you want to go low, then you're looking at 4/5.

Shinsuke Nakamura .vs. Baron Corbin
This match has a line of three stars. If you believe it will get three or more, then a win will pay out at 17/20. If not, you can back the under also at 17/20.

US Championship
With AJ Styles and Kevin Owens going one-on-one, the line has been set very high. It's at four-and-a-half. The under and over can be found at 17/20.

WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship
The line for the tag team match is set at three stars with both options at 17/20.

Flag Match
As I mentioned above, a market for John Cena .vs. Rusev was installed on July 9th. The line was set at three-and-a-half with both 'Over' and the 'Under' at 17/20 each. The odds and line have stayed where they were from day one.

Punjabi Prison Match
When this market was first installed, the line was set at one star. I felt this was way too low despite previous Punjabi prison matches given low to negative stars in the past. The line was eventually moved out to one-and-three-quarter stars.

Punjabi Prison Match 2017 star rating betting

As the table shows - despite the line being moved from one star to one-and-three-quarters, the punters are still backing the 'Over'. After moving it from 17/20 to 13/20 when at one, the clients have now moved it from 9/10 to 13/20 with the refreshed line.

Thoughts
I had already recommended the 'Over' in the Punjabi prison match  two weeks ago, so there's no point in suggesting over 1.75 stars.

Two stars for the fatal 5-way match is appealing to an extent. I'm hoping Becky, Charlotte and Natalya will do enough to have a decent outing, so will be backing the over once I've hit publish.

Another market/line that caught my attention is the one for the US Championship. The last time AJ Styles and Kevin Owens wrestled in a singles match on a PPV was at Backlash in May. This bout received three-and-three-quarter stars. 

Kambi's odds can be found on these websites. A couple of examples can be found below:


Orton Becomes Battleground Favourite And More

There have been a number of big price cuts in the WWE Battleground 2017 betting markets that are available on the Paddy Power website since I last checked in with them.

Looking through the markets, the biggest move has seen Randy Orton go from a 2/1 outsider to win the WWE Championship into 2/5.

As a result, Jinder Mahal has jumped out to 7/4 from 1/3.

Other moves are:

Tye Dillinger from 4/11 to 1/6
Baron Corbin moving from 6/4 outsider to 3/10
The Usos descending from 6/4 into 1/4
Charlotte from 8/15 to 1/6
Sami Zayn from 5/4 to 1/4
Kevin Owens from 3/1 into 1/6

Odds from Paddy Power's WWE Betting Page

Paddy Power Cuts Odds For 3 Battleground Favourites

A trio of WWE Batteground favourites' prices have been cut in the betting markets for tomorrow's event at Paddy Power.

Jinder Mahal, who was 4/9 this morning, is now down to 1/3. As a result, Randy Orton has been moved up from 13/8 into 2/1.

The match market for the fatal 5-way elimination match to determine a number one contender to Naomi's WWE Smackdown Women's Championship has seen Charlotte Flair dip from this morning's 4/6 into 8/15.
With Charlotte moving in, the prices for the other runners have jumped out. You can see how they've changed in the table below.

The most notable price cut has been in the market for the US Championship.

Brock Lesnar, The Universal Championship And SummerSlam Betting Update

With the news during midweek of hints suggesting Brock Lesnar is once again contemplating a return to the Ultimate Fighting Championship, I have decided to once again look through the Brock Lesnar and SummerSlam main event specials that are available from the oddsmakers that publish odds for Kambi.

Who Will Be Universal Champ At The End Of SummerSlam?

WWE Universal Champion At The End Of SummerSlam 2017 Betting
Click on image to expand (Odds from Unibet's WWE Page)

The market where customers can have a bet on who they believe will be the WWE Universal Champion at the end of SummerSlam 2017 is showing a slight change.
Samoa Joe's odds to be the champ coming out of the event have been snipped from 6/1 into 11/2. The traders have moved Lesnar up from 1/4 to 2/5.
What is worth noting is that Lesnar is still technically retired, so the USADA suspension that he is serving is on ice. If he is to return to UFC, he would have to come out of retirement and be placed in the testing pool and - from that point - the suspension would have to complete. Going by this, he would have to wait until late 2017 or sometime in 2018 to fight. Another thing that's even more important is his contract with WWE is due to expire in the spring of next year. I don't know if WWE would allow him to fight for UFC during its most important business period of the year especially if he doesn't intend to renew his contract beyond WrestleMania.

Next Universal Champion After Lesnar

Another market that is worth looking at is one where clients can bet on the person who succeeds Brock Lesnar for the strap.

Three selections' prices have changed since I last looked through the market five days ago. Braun Strowman has drifted out slightly from 6/4 to 2/1. The other two selections have shortened. They are Samoa Joe (4/1 to 3/1) and Finn Balor (15/1 to 10/1).

Date Of Lesnar's Defeat

The market where clients can have a bet on the time-frame when Brock Lesnar drops the strap is still showing the same pricing as July 17th. You can view the table below:

Date Brock Lesnar Drops WWE Universal Championship Betting For July 22nd 2017

The favourite is still 'During SummerSlam' at 3/10 with the 'During WrestleMania 34' option at EVS.

Number Of Competitors In SummerSlam Main Event

During Great Balls of Fire, it became clear to me that Roman Reigns versus Brock Lesnar as the Universal Championship match at SummerSlam was no longer the direction. If it was, they wouldn't have scripted the angle after the ambulance match which made it clear that the rivalry between Reigns and Strowman wasn't settled. 
Going in, there were reports of a Lesnar .vs. Reigns .vs. Samoa Joe triple threat because of how popular the Lesnar/Joe program had become, so - seeing Strowman booked the way he was coming out of Great Balls of Fire - there was a strong hint that the SummerSlam main event would be a four-way.

Number Of Participants In Universal Championship Match at SummerSlam 2017 Betting July 22nd 2017

The market opened on July 15th with the '4 or More' option out at 2/1. It was moved up to 9/4 by the following day, but has now been snipped to 6/4. The closing angle on the most recent episode of Raw, where Braun Strowman interfered in the number one contender match between Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe - may have prompted the oddsmakers to readjust the price.

Exact Composition


Customers can also have a gamble on what they believe the Universal Championship match will be on the SummerSlam card. The Strowman/Lesnar/Reigns three-way was the early favourite, but it has been on the drift now that the punters have sided with the four way including Samoa Joe along with the three other names.


William Hill's WWE Battleground 2017 Markets Published

The William Hill Sportsbook has published betting odds for all of the matches scheduled to take place at tomorrow night's WWE Battleground 2017 pay-per-view.

In this post, I'll run through all of the odds as of just after 9am BST this morning.

Tye Dillinger is a 2/5 favourite to defeat Aiden English on the pre-show. A winning punt on English will pay out at odds of 7/4.

The Usos are 13/8 outsiders to successfully retain the WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship against The New Day. The challengers are 4/9.

Charlotte Flair sits at the top of the market for the fatal 5-way to determine Naomi's SummerSlam opponent. She is 8/11. Lana has been installed as a 5/2 second-favourite. Becky Lynch is next at 10/3, Tamina follows at 5s and Natalya is 9/1.

John Cena is 1/9 to defeat Rusev in the flag match. Anyone looking for the Bulgarian Brute to go over can back him at 5/1 here.

Shinsuke Nakamura is 4/9 for his match with the current Money in the Bank contract holder, Baron Corbin (13/8).

AJ Styles is another 4/9 favourite to Kevin Owens' 13/8.

Sami Zayn is 11/10 to get a result over Mike Kanellis. The latter is 4/6.

WWE Champion, Jinder Mahal, has been installed as a 1/3 favourite to successfully retain his strap against Randy Orton inside the Punjabi prison cage. The former titleholder has been priced up at 9/4.

The company will publish in-play specials leading up to the show tomorrow night. If you have any ideas, you can leave them in the comments section of THIS POST.

More Battleground 2017 Odds From Kambi

The Kambi oddsmakers have reopened betting for WWE Battleground 2017 and are now offering a full line-up of match markets.

Tye Dillinger is a 3/10 favourite to get a decision over Aiden English (11/5) on the pre-show.

The market where customers can wager on who they believe will go over in the fatal 5-way match has Charlotte Flair at the top with a price of 13/20. She's followed by Becky Lynch at 5/2, Lana also at 5/2, Tamina at 5/1 and Natalya out at 10/1.

Sami Zayn is a 6/5 outsider to Mike Kanellis, who will be making his WWE pay-per-view debut on Sunday. A successful punt on Kanellis will pay out at odds of 3/5.

Shinsuke Nakamura is a 2/5 favourite to defeat the 2017 Men's Money in the Bank ladder match winner, Baron Corbin (7/4).

The New Day are 2/5 for their match as well. The current WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champions, The Usos, are 7/4.

WWE US Champion, AJ Styles is 1/2 to defeat the former titleholder, Kevin Owens (7/5).

Before today, the sportsbooks and casinos with WWE odds had been accepting wagers on the two main bouts of the night - the flag and Punjabi prison matches.

John Cena is now a 1/10 favourite to defeat Rusev in the flag match. He had previously been 1/8. A winning punt on Rusev will now pay out at 5/1. He had previously been 4s.

Jinder Mahal's odds to successfully retain the WWE Championship inside the Punjabi prison have improved slightly as he has moved up from 3/10 into 2/5. This obviously means that Randy Orton's price has lowered. He is now 7/4 from 11/5.

The oddsmakers have also published a handful of prop markets for the show. Customers can wager on things like 'First Near Fall', 'Method of Decision' and also whether either of the Money in the Bank winners cash in their title shots during the PPV.

Majority Of Outsiders Backed In Paddy Power's Battleground 2017 Markets

There have been price changes made to the WWE Battleground 2017 markets that are available from the Paddy Power Sportsbook overnight. The punters appear to have backed outsiders in the majority of markets with a few exceptions.

Tye Dillinger .vs. Aiden English
The babyface to win on the pre-show has moved in from 1/2 to 4/11 while Aiden English has drifted from 6/4 to 15/8.

AJ Styles .vs. Kevin Owens
When I last checked in, Kevin Owens was 15/8. He is now down to 5/4. This has sent AJ Styles up from 1/3 to 8/15.

Mike Kanellis .vs. Sami Zayn
Kanellis has moved in from 8/11 to 4/7 while Zayn has increased from EVS to 5/4.

Fatal 5-Way
Charlotte Flair's odds to win the fatal 5-way elimination match have lowered from 5/6 into 4/6.

Another selection that has been cut is Natalya. She is now 8/1 from 10/1. Other than Becky Lynch, who remains at 3/1, Lana and Tamina have drifted out.

WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship
The Usos' price has moved in from 13/8 to 6/4. With the champs' being backed, the oddsmakers have moved The New Day out to 1/2 from 4/9.

Shinsuke Nakamura .vs. Baron Corbin
A Baron Corbin win has been snipped from 7/4 into 6/4 with Nakamura moving up to 1/2 from 2/5.

Flag Match
The punters have backed Rusev to win the flag match as he has been lowered from 5/1 into 4/1. John Cena is still the favourite, but his price has moved from 1/10 to 1/7.

WWE Championship
The challenger to Jinder Mahal's strap - Randy Orton - has moved in from 11/5 to 13/8. A successful bet on the WWE Champion will now pay out at odds of 4/9. Before today, you would have only got 3/10.

Observations
Looking at the moves, my call is to state that the punters have blindly backed the outsiders in all of the matches other than the bouts that should be the easiest to call. If you look below, I've grouped the names of the selections that were backed.

Favourites That Have Been Backed
Tye Dillinger, Mike Kanellis, Charlotte Flair,

Outsiders That Have Been Backed
Kevin Owens, Natalya, The Usos, Baron Corbin, Rusev, Randy Orton

Tye Dillinger winning on the pre-show is something the majority of punters would blindly back because he's the babyface in that match. In the case of Mike Kanellis - it's his first PPV match, so the clients may have backed him in the belief that the company won't have him lose straight away.

With that said, I've bet on Zayn to win against Kanellis. The wager was a speculative punt because Sami took the fall against Kanellis on Tuesday night, so my bet was on WWE booking rather than giving the newcomer a win on his PPV debut.

WWE Battleground 2017 Odds Update For Wednesday Morning

Battleground 2017 Odds Ahead Of Tonight's Smackdown

With Smackdown starting in less than two hours, I've checked with the sports betting firms with WWE Battleground 2017 odds to note any price changes.

Kambi's markets were taken down shortly after 9pm BST this evening. The rest are still showing the same prices that have been available for days.

Ladbrokes and Coral's odds are as follows:

John Cena 1/10
Rusev 5/1

Jinder Mahal 1/4
Randy Orton 5/2


John Cena 1/4
Rusev 5/2

Jinder Mahal 3/10
Randy Orton 11/5

The 5Dimes Sportsbook has one match market on the board as of the time of publishing and this is for the flag match. The odds can be viewed by clicking on the image below:


I shall publish another update tomorrow morning with the intention to see if anything that takes place on tonight's episode results in moves.

MITB Cash-In Prop Bets Update For July 18th

The Kambi oddsmakers have just taken down their Money in the Bank cash-in prop markets, so I have made a note of the current prices and will compare them to previous numbers for the next time they're made available.

There have been a few changes since the most recent post which was published a fortnight ago. Here's what I've noticed.

Men's Cash-In Success or Failure?
The market where customers can wager on there being a successful cash-in or not has now leaned on the No.

Men's MITB 2017 Cash-In Prop Bets

As you can see in the image above, an unsuccessful cash-in by Baron Corbin - or whoever may be holding the 2017 Men's Money in the Bank contract at the time of execution - has been snipped from 5/2 into 2/1.

This means that the customers who would like to bet on the cash-in being fruitful can now pick it at 1/3. This is the best price that I have seen this selection available since the market has been open.

Show Of Briefcase Cash-In
This market has remained stationary since it first opened. The 'Raw/Smackdown' option is 3/1 while the 'PPV/Network Special or Any Other' is favoured at 1/5.

Time Of Men's Cash-In
A market where clients can bet on the time-frame when the Money in the Bank contract holder cashes in has had action on two options - 'Between First Day After SummerSlam, But Before Survivor Series' and 'Between Survivor Series But Before Royal Rumble'.

By backing the two options, the punters have covered a good stretch of time. It runs from late August to late January if they backed the two selections at the same time. 

With the two options moving in, the oddsmakers have pushed out three others. You can see them in the image below. Two cover the period when the company is building its storylines toward WrestleMania. The third will pay out if there hasn't been a cash-in after the Monday following WrestleMania. With the briefcase being associated with Smackdown's championhip, if it hasn't been cashed in by Mania - the final selection would be good to go.

Women's Cash-In A Success Or Failure?
After the puzzling action on the day of Money in the Bank 2017, when customers were heavily backing an unsuccessful cash-in, things now appear back to where I believe they should be.

A successful cash-in by whoever is holding the briefcase has now moved in from 1/13 to 1/34 since I last checked in. As noted in many posts since the concept of a women's Money in the Bank ladder match was confirmed, the first cash-in has to win the championship in order to get the gimmick over. It doesn't matter if the second, third or fourth doesn't - the first really does have to.

Show Of Briefcase Cash-In
This market has gently been leaning on there being a cash-in on 'Raw/Smackdown'. 

TV Show or PPV Where Women's MITB Contract Is Cashed In Odds

It started off at 3/1 on the night of the show and is now down to even money. I can get why the punters have sided with the cash-in taking place during an episode of Smackdown (or Raw). I think when the show gave away a Women's Money in the Bank ladder match for free, it made it clear that anything can happen with the women's division on the Smackdown brand.

Time Of Women's Cash-In
There have been two selections that have been cut in the market where customers can bet on the time-frame when the women's Money in the Bank contract is cashed in.

Firstly, they've snipped 'Between Survivor Series, But Before WrestleMania' from 3/1 into 5/2.

The 'During SummerSlam' option is interesting. It has moved in from 5/4 to 4/5 and I guess this is from customers who have realised that Carmella will be local when SummerSlam takes place in Brooklyn on August 20th. I don't know if it'll be too soon to pull the trigger, but I can understand why the clients have backed 'During SummerSlam' just in case. 

Prices correct as of 7:30pm BST this evening. When available, the markets can be found on the websites that publish betting odds from Kambi. A couple of examples can be found below.
