WHERE TO BET ON WWE EXTREME RULES 2014

The next WWE special event is Extreme Rules, which will take place from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey on May 4th. In this post, I'm going to do my monthly run-through of the online betting websites where you might be able to wager on the event.

This list is going to be ranked in order with the sportsbooks that have published odds on a regular basis near the top.

5Dimes Casino & Sportsbook (US Friendly)

The 5Dimes sportsbook has offered WWE pay-per-view for many years and I fully expect the company to have Extreme Rules 2014 matches available to bet on in May. When available the match markets can be found under the 'Other Sports' category on the betting board at 5Dimes.eu

Paddy Power

The Irish bookmaking company, Paddy Power, have also offered World Wrestling Entertainment pay-per-view betting markets each month. I expect them to continue this trend with Extreme Rules.
When the odds are posted, you will find them in the 'Sports Novelties' section of PaddyPower.com

Sky Bet

Sky Bet is another company that has offered WWE wagering on a monthly basis. I would be very surprised if the time comes and there aren't any markets open for Extreme Rules. When they are available, you will find them under 'Wrestling' on the menu at SkyBet.com

YouWin

YouWin have been offering WWE match markets on its website for quite some time now. The only recent event I can remember them missing is Elimination Chamber in February. If they do end up pricing up odds for Extreme Rules, you'll find them in the 'Specials' section of YouWin.com

UWin (Canada)

UWin is the Canadian-facing partner of YouWin. As with its partner, the UWin WWE odds will be found under 'Specials'. The website address is UWin.com

William Hill

William Hill is another company that opens World Wrestling Entertainment wagers on a regular basis. As with YouWin, William Hill did miss out on Elimination Chamber but did have odds available for WrestleMania XXX. It is worth noting that every time William Hill have WWE markets available to customers, the odds are taken down overnight so if you are looking for them late at night, they might not be there. It's best to check early in the daytime. When published, the odds are found under 'TV/Specials' on the sports betting menu at WilliamHill.com

Betfred

Manchester-based Betfred opened wrestling betting for the Royal Rumble in January and WrestleMania XXX on April 6th. If the company decides to open a book for Extreme Rules, the odds will be available under 'TV Show / Special' on the sports betting side of Betfred.com

Betfair

The sportsbook on Betfair also offered odds for the most recent WrestleMania. I am hoping the company decides to allow its customers to gamble on Extreme Rules because they came out with some intriguing prop bets for WrestleMania. For example, they set an over/under on how many times Hulk Hogan would say 'Brother'. If you are a customer of Betfair, please get in touch with them and tell them you would like to see more WWE wagering opportunities. If not - JOIN NOW and then tell them!
If WWE markets are opened at Betfair, they'll be found under 'Special Bets' of the regular sports betting menu of Betfair.com 

Coral

Coral Bookmakers told me that they only open WWE betting markets for the big events like SummerSlam, Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. If they do decide to go against this plan and open a book for Extreme Rules, they'll be available under 'TV Specials' on the Non-sports A-Z' menu of Coral.co.uk

Bovada (US Friendly)

Bovada usually only posts betting odds for the big main events but it's worth having a look to see if they decide to offer WWE markets for smaller PPVs after one of the spokespersons for the company said they will consider WWE betting in future after receiving press about WrestleMania XXX wagers. If they are posted, you will find Extreme Rules betting odds under 'Other Sports' on the sportsbook menu at Bovada.lv

Bodog (Canada)

The Canadian-facing Bodog has WrestleMania XXX odds posted on its website. Just like the company above, I think it will depend on how much popularity and feedback the company gets following the WrestleMania markets. If they do end up being posted, WWE odds will be found under 'Other Sports' on the sports menu at Bodog.eu


I hope this post has helped you in any way. If you have only come across WWE sports betting through WrestleMania and would like any of the companies you have joined to continue offering WWE betting markets, I suggest you get in touch with them and let them know what you want. If there is demand, I am sure they'll supply.

Best of luck with your bets.

HOW THE JOHN CENA VS BRAY WYATT ODDS MOVED IN WRESTLEMANIA XXX BETTING

I have covered how the odds for the WrestleMania XXX match between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker changed in the hours leading up to the end of The Undertaker's streak a number of days ago and thought it was worth looking at how the price for John Cena fell in his battle against Bray Wyatt.

The graph below shows how their odds changed from the moment they were opened right up to the eve of WrestleMania XXX.

Click to expand

As you can see, John Cena was an underdog from the moment the book was opened. He remained in the outsider role all the way through to Saturday evening despite there being a dip around April 1st. His price dropping more than likely had something to do with the angle that took place on Monday Night Raw on the 31st, which saw Cena infiltrate the Wyatt Family and do a number on them. 

With that said, in similar situations in the past where an underdog is booked strong in the go-home episode of Raw, I have noticed that bettors have wagered on the opponent because some have realised the even-steven approach the writers tend to take with their story telling.

The WrestleMania Sunday action was even more interesting.

Time in BST. Click to expand

The daytime wagering appears to have been placed on Bray Wyatt as his odds went from the -400 he was priced up at early on Sunday morning. By 5:30pm BST, he was marked up at -900 with Cena drifting out from +280 to +500.

The odds for both wrestlers drove back closer together as the evening wore on. As Hulk Hogan took centre stage to start off the show, both Cena and Wyatt were still underdog and favourite respectively. 

Somewhere between the start of the show and the music video for the match aired, wagers went in on John Cena. He went from a +320 underdog to -420 favourite. 

The late movement once again is a sign that smart money landed on the right person as John Cena did end up walking out of New Orleans with the W.

Odds taken from 5Dimes.eu.

DOLPHINS SAID, THE ODDS READ : WRESTLEMANIA XXX EDITION

For months, I have been writing about the odds changes for World Wrestling Entertainment pay-per-views (or 'Special Events' as the company want them to be called from now on) and have pointed out time and time again that the Reddit/Twitter user, Dolphins1925 and/or his 'source' are frauds.

My evidence is simple - the betting odds.

The 'spoilers' dished out by Dolphins1925 just before a WWE special event are always in line with the betting prices at the 5Dimes Sportsbook.

When the odds are off, so are the 'spoilers'.

And some of the odds were off this past Sunday. 

To highlight my point, I'm going to copy what was tweeted out by Dolphins and look at what the betting indicated.

'Spoiler' 1 : The Usos will win the fatal 4 way tag team match and retain their belts

The Usos had been favourites to win the match since the odds first opened. They were -3000 (1/30 UK) around the time of the tweet.

'Spoiler' 2 : I have been told there are multiple twists unfolding in the Triple H/Bryan match. Triple H wins and it will be overturned. Daniel Bryan wins

This was his first inaccurate 'spoiler'. If you had been following late betting, you could have drawn the same conclusion. 

At 11pm BST, Bryan was a -20000 favourite to win the match in 'End of Broadcast' betting, where customers are paid winnings at what the result is recorded as being once the show has ended. However, at the same time I recorded the above odds, the 'Initial Ruling' price - which is settled on the first call made by the referee - had Bryan an underdog at +180.  This peculiar difference in roles first came to my attention earlier that evening. I noted it in a post titled 'Interesting Odds Patterns Concerning The WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match'

As we now know, there was no reversal and Bryan went on to the main event.

'Spoiler' 3 : The Shield will defeat Corporate Kane & The New Age Outlaws

Hardly a spoiler. The Shield opened and closed as favourites. Their odds went from -1200 to -2000 in the betting period.

'Spoiler' 4 : Alex Rusev will win the Andre the Giant 30 Man Battle Royal. Sorry Big Show, better luck next time

Alex Rusev was never booked to be in this match. The odds had 'Mystery Wrestler Wins' (ie an unannounced wrestler) as a -900 favourite at the time of the pay-per-view. The actual winner was the unannounced Cesaro. Rusev was a choice to wager on at many other bookmakers. In all of these sportsbooks, he was the favourite in the betting. For instance, at Bovada he was priced at +125 (5/4 UK) for most of the weekend with his price dropping even lower (4/9 UK) before the pay-per-view. The bettors had bought into Rusev winning and that's why Dolphins/his source made the bold assumption that he would win.

Following a few tweets where he threw his alleged source under the bus by calling him a 'f***ing fraud', we were offered:

'Spoiler' 5 : For what it's worth, my source gave me John Cena. But I have no faith in this asshole, win or lose. He has A LOT of explaining to do

I would have liked to have seen Dolphins1925 tweet the winner of this match out just before the pay-per-view started. I believe we would have seen him announce Bray Wyatt as the upcoming winner. I write this because Wyatt had been favourite throughout the entire betting period leading up to the beginning of WrestleMania XXX. As the match was nearing, Wyatt drifted out from the -460 he was at the start of the show and had become a +300 underdog.

'Spoiler' 6 : Still no word from my source. Flat out despicable behavior. Obviously, I was told Undertaker would win and extend his WM streak to 22-0

Another incorrect call. Despite Undertaker being favourite at the time of the tweet, it is apparent that the insiders were betting against him in the hours leading up to the start of the match. I took a look at the betting action on this match in a post titled 'The Undertaker & Brock Lesnar in the Days & Hours Before The End of the Streak'

According to some reports, Lesnar was favourite in at least two sportsbooks. This may have been the case. However, in the numerous times I tracked the odds, he was still an underdog albeit with a shorter price than he had earlier in the day indicating the money was landing on him. I speculate that The Undertaker remained favoured at the books (or an underdog for a short time, if the reports are accurate) because non-insiders saw a nice price on Taker and bet that number. This ultimately kept his price in the minus.

At this point, Dolphins1925 appeared to have been having a meltdown and ignored the Vickie Guerrero Invitational match for the WWE Divas Championship. He did go on to announce:

'Spoiler' 7 : For the record, my source gave me Randy Orton as the main event winner. However, I have reason to believe they have been deceptive

This wasn't as peculiar a choice to go with as it appears. The eventual winner, Daniel Bryan, had been the favourite throughout the entire betting period. However, earlier in the evening, there appeared to have been action coming in on Randy Orton as his price had dropped from +4000 into +1500 before the show started. I noted that wagers were being placed on Orton in a post I published at 9:43pm BST on Sunday evening

The rest of Dolphins1925's tweets are rants noting how Undertaker should not have wrestled and that his source was not 'trustworthy' amongst other things.

Lost in the rant is the mission statement he revealed when he explained why he gives out special event spoilers.

Back last year, he claimed that his agenda was to stop spoilers from being leaked. He wanted to embarrass the company into keeping match results from getting out. 

Ironically, when the results didn't turn out the way the betting odds indicated, he was the one who came away embarrassed.

THE UNDERTAKER & BROCK LESNAR IN THE DAYS AND HOURS BEFORE THE END OF THE STREAK

We all now know that The Undertaker lost to Brock Lesnar at last night's WrestleMania pay-per-view. However, we could have known a few hours before the show.

I kept constant checks of the odds from the time they were first posted online at 5Dimes.eu all the way through to just before the bell sounded to kick off their match.

The image below shows how far apart The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar were from the early stages of betting up to the night before WrestleMania XXX.

Click to expand

A look at how the betting went on WrestleMania Sunday below shows how close they were when the late money came in before the show.


Time in BST. Click to expand

I noticed a change in the betting on the bout. I even wrote about it in a post where I noted the differences in the prices of a number of match markets at the sportsbook.

Unfortunately, I had blinkered myself into believing that World Wrestling Entertainment would never have the streak end so I reasoned that the odds shifting had either something to do with underdog gamblers taking the number (it happens in regular sports betting) or the sportsbook had balanced action on both sides so set out new odds to attract more wagers on the fixture.

Hindsight proves my theories were incorrect. It was smart, inside money moving the price.

There really is no alternative excuse, in my opinion.

The question then has to be asked, why didn't Lesnar become a favourite like in similar scenarios where heavy underdogs became a favourite in the eleventh hour of betting?

It's quite simple.

When the odds started shortening for Lesnar, The Undertaker's price may have been more attractive to people who also didn't believe the streak would end. As the bettors placed their stakes on Undertaker, it started to move the two opponents out again ultimately forcing Taker to remain a favourite to win which - and as we know now - was not the plan.

In a few days, I'll take a look at what happened in the betting on the Bray Wyatt vs John Cena match.

BRAY WYATT VS JOHN CENA BETTING ROLES CHANGE

John Cena has swung into the role of favourite in the betting market for his WrestleMania XXX match against Bray Wyatt.

Before the pay-per-view started, Wyatt was a -460 favourite. He is now marked up as a +300 (4.00 EU, 3/1 UK) underdog.

Cena has gone from +320 to -420 (5/21 UK).

LATEST ODDS OBSERVATIONS WITH 5DIMES

There have been noteworthy changes in the WrestleMania XXX betting odds posted at 5Dimes.eu since I last checked in with the sportsbook a number of hours ago.

Here's what I have found.

  • It appears the money is now landing on Randy Orton in wagering on the main event. His odds have fallen from +2200 to +1500 (16.00 EU, 15/1 UK). Daniel Bryan, even though still favoured, has seen his price move from -1700 to -1500 (1/15 UK)
  • The option to wager on the 'Qualifying Winner' has also moved. At 5:30pm BST it was -2600 and is now -2150 (2/43 approx UK)
  • John Cena and Bray Wyatt's odds for 'Initial' and 'End of Broadcast' rulings do not correlate. John Cena is an underdog in 'End of Broadcast' betting but is favoured in 'Initial ruling' rules.
  • The Usos price on winning the pre-show went from -420 into -1200 (1/12 UK)
  • AJ Lee to win the Vickie Guerrero Invitational is also -1200 (1/12 UK). The last time I looked, she was -530.
  • The Shield have gone from -6000 favourites all the way to -20000 (1/200 UK) favourites
  • Most interesting of all is The Undertaker's odds have improved from -20000 and are set at -2000. Brock Lesnar's have weakened from +5000 to +1000 (11.00 EU, 10/1 UK).

WILL A MYSTERY WRESTLER WIN THE ANDRE THE GIANT MEMORIAL BATTLE ROYAL? BET IT NOW

Additional WrestleMania 30 betting lines have been posted on the betting board of the 5Dimes website..

One of these markets allow punters to wager on an unnamed wrestler ending up as the winner of the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

As of the time of publishing, 5Dimes customers can get odds of -165 (1.61 EU, 20/33 UK) that the winner of the Andre the Giant trophy will be a mystery wrestler.

Punters expecting the victor to be a name that is already listed as being a participant can do so with a price of +125 (2.25 EU, 5/4 UK).

The sportsbook's linemakers have compiled odds for each wrestler in the match. The Big Show is favourite with +350 (4.50 EU, 7/2 UK) odds.

It's worth noting that Alexander Rusev is a favourite in betting at all other websites despite not officially being announced as a entrant in the match.

Wrestling odds are found under 'Other Sports' on the betting board at 5Dimes.eu

INTERESTING ODDS PATTERNS CONCERNING THE WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

The oddsmakers at the 5Dimes Sportsbook have readjusted their WrestleMania XXX betting lines a number of minutes ago and there has been some interesting changes of note. The main one concerns the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match and its decider.

As a rule of thumb, I rarely track odds for the 'Initial Ruling' where bets are settled on the first call of the referee. However, there is something that does not line up as you will soon discover.

In betting on the match between Triple H and Daniel Bryan to see which wrestler goes on to challenge for the WWE title, the Initial Ruling odds conflict with the 'End of Broadcast' price (which is settled on what the actual result ends up being).

The Initial ruling has Triple H favoured at -190 (1.53 EU, 10/19 UK) whilst the End of Broadcast ruling has Daniel Bryan a favourite with a line of -13500 (1/135 UK). Often when the bookmaker sets up two sets of odds for a match, the initial and end of broadcast rulings are symmetric in establishing a favourite and underdog.

Things get even more peculiar when examining the pricing for the main event match-up.

Triple H had been +6000 since early yesterday morning. At the time of this posting, his odds have fallen to +2000 (21.00 EU, 20/1 UK).

Daniel Bryan still remains a favourite to win the match at a price of -1700 (1/17 UK).

Odds correct as of 17:52 BST. For the latest check the betting board at 5Dimes.eu

THE ROCK ADDED TO THE ANDRE THE GIANT MEMORIAL BATTLE ROYAL BETTING BOARD AT PADDY POWER

The Rock has been added to the runners on the betting board for the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at PaddyPower.com.

His inclusion in the betting follows confirmation that Dwayne Johnson is in New Orleans for WrestleMania XXX and is expected to make a cameo at the event.

Other interesting names also on the list are the Ultimate Warrior and 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin.

The props on offer include 'Will CM Punk make a surprise appearance?', 'How many times will Hulk Hogan say "Brother?"' and 'How many big boot & legdrop combos will Hulk Hogan perform?'

The match odds on offer, as of the time of time of publishing, are:

Bray Wyatt 4/11
John Cena 2/1

Triple H 7/1
Daniel Bryan 1/25

The company has a long list of names up for bettors to wager on the winner of the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Alexander Rusev is favoured at Evens with The Big Show playing the role of second-favourite at 3/1.

Other names of note, but not likely to be featured in the match have also been posted on the betting board. Here's a sample of what you will find along with their respective odds:

Hulk Hogan 6/1
Ultimate Warrior 16/1
Mr. T 25/1
Jake Roberts 33/1
The Rock 33/1

The WrestleMania betting markets can be found under 'USA' on the Special Bets section of Betfair.com.

SATURDAY NIGHT WRESTLEMANIA BETTING AT THE 5DIMES SPORTSBOOK

There were only two match markets where the odds changed in WrestleMania XXX wagering overnight at 5Dimes.eu.

The 'Any Other Winner' option in betting on the pre-show for the WWE Tag Team Championship moved down from +330 to +280 (3.80 EU, 14/5 UK). As a result of the underdogs being bet on, The Usos' price is now -400 (1.25 EU, 1/4 UK).

The second change occurred in gambling on the John Cena versus Bray Wyatt bout.

Cena had been marked up at +300 for most of the weekend but is now at +280 (3.80 EU, 14/5 UK) indicating that the Saturday night bettors were punting on him. His opponent's odds have changed from -420 to -400 (1.25 EU, 1/4 UK).

When WrestleMania betting odds were first posted, Cena was priced at +270 and Wyatt was -390.

Odds correct as of 8am BST. For the latest, check out the betting board at 5Dimes.eu.

THE SHIELD VS KANE & NEW AGE OUTLAWS WRESTLEMANIA 30 BETTING ODDS BACK UP AT BODOG / BOVADA

Earlier today, I noticed that the WrestleMania XXX match odds for The Shield versus Kane & The New Age Outlaws had been taken off the board at both the Bodog and Bovada Sportsbooks.

Since that time, the odds have been readjusted and placed back up.

As of right now, The Shield are priced at -2000 (1/20 UK) with their opponents available at +800 (9.00 EU, 8/1 UK).

Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins had been -800 with Kane & The Outlaws underdogs at +425 (17/4 UK).

The line change may have been due to a domino effect from the match odds changing at other websites. Punters may have seen the difference and went for a better number.

Other changes I have noticed through Saturday is The Undertaker's has shortened further. Earlier today, he was -4000 but is now marked up at -5000 (1/50 UK). Brock Lesnar, on the other hand, has obviously drifted out. He is now offered up with odds of +1400 (15.00 EU, 14/1 UK), a jump from the +1000 he was since last night.

The Usos remain priced at -500 with both books. However, their three opponents in the WrestleMania pre-show have gone out. The Real Americans moved from +350 to +450 (9/2 UK), Rybaxel from +800 to +1200 (12/1 UK) and Los Matadores are now +1500 (15/1 UK) after being +1200 earlier.

I will return with another look at the Bodog / Bovada WrestleMania betting odds tomorrow morning.

AN A -Z LIST OF BETTING WEBSITES OFFERING WAYS TO BET ON WRESTLEMANIA XXX

FRIDAY NIGHT WRESTLEMANIA XXX WAGERING AT THE 5DIMES SPORTSBOOK

Here's a quick summary of what happened overnight at 5Dimes.eu


  • The Shield's odds to win against the New Age Outlaws & Kane moved from -1700 and is now marked at -4500 (1/17 UK). As a result of the change, their opponents are now +1500 (16.00 EU, 15/1 UK). This is an increase from +800.
  • In a post published last night, I noted how the odds for the Vickie Guerrero Invitational were closing in to being a near pick 'em. Since that time, the odds have separated out. AJ Lee's price moved from -130 to -350 (1.29 EU, 2/7 UK). 'The Field', made up of every other participant in the match, went from -110 to +250 (3.50 EU, 5/2 UK).
  • Daniel Bryan's odds on winning the Triple Threat Qualifier against Triple H moved from -4500 to -16000 (1/160 UK). In the same period, Triple H's price moved from +1500 to +4000 (41.00 EU, 40.1 UK)
  • Out of the five possible ways to wager on the Triple Threat match, Triple H's odds were the only ones to change. In last night's observation, I noted he was marked up as a +4000 underdog. Since that time, his price has risen to +6000 (61.00 EU, 60/1 UK)
  • The Undertaker, who had been -7500 since Thursday afternoon, moved to -16000 (1/160 UK) with Brock Lesnar drifting out from +2500 to +4000 (41.00 EU, 40/1 UK)

It's hard to determine whether the current trend that had seen the eventual winner being backed heavily on a Friday night has occurred this month. 

Even though the odds have changed strongly for some of the bouts, I think this movement has more to do with fans wagering on obvious winners this time around. 

I write this because the price for John Cena versus Bray Wyatt has remained stationary since yesterday morning. This could be due to the punters wagering on both sides and creating a balance of sorts. It could also mean the insiders have left it alone until the finish is concrete.

We'll find out soon enough.

Odds correct as of 9am BST. For the latest, check out the betting board at 5Dimes.eu

AJ LEE VS 'THE FIELD' ALMOST A PICK 'EM IN WRESTLEMANIA XXX BETTING AT 5DIMES

'The Field' that is opposing AJ Lee in WrestleMania XXX betting has moved to near favourites at The 5Dimes Sportsbook.

Earlier today, the option was available at odds of +145 but is now priced at -110 (1.91 EU, 10/11 UK) with the book. 

In this same betting period, the current WWE Divas Champion's odds have gone from -185 to -130 (1.77 EU, 10/13 UK) meaning this fixture is a near pick 'em.

It'll be interesting to see how this line moves over the course of the weekend.

These odds are correct as of 11pm BST. For the latest prices, check out the betting board at 5Dimes.eu.

BRYAN'S WRESTLEMANIA XXX MAIN EVENT BETTING ODDS SHORTEN AT BODOG & BOVADA

The betting odds for Daniel Bryan to win this Sunday's WrestleMania XXX main event have shortened at both Bodog and Bovada.

When both companies opened a WrestleMania book a number of days ago, the wrestler was priced at -550 before shortening to -700. He remained at that number for the past two days but is now marked up at -1500 (1/15 UK).

As a result of this re-adjustment, the odds for the three other possible winners have changed.

The current WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Randy Orton, is now +2000 (20/1 UK), Batista is +900 (9/1 UK) and Triple H out at +1500 (15/1).

Other changes through the day:

The Undertaker from -3000 to -4000 (1/40 UK)
Brock Lesnar from +900 to +1000 (10/1 UK)

The Usos from -250 to -500 (1/5 UK)
Real Americans +175 to +350 (7/2 UK)
Rybaxel from +250 to +800 (8/1 UK)
Los Matadores +700 to +1200 (12/1)

AJ Lee -200 to -180 (5/9 UK)
The Field +150 to +140 (7/5 UK)

Alexander Rusev from +175 to +125 (5/4 UK)
Big Show from +200 to +225 (9/4)
The Field +750 to +600 (6/1)

WrestleMania odds can be found under 'Other Sports' on the menu at both websites.

THE UNDERTAKER 1/25 TO DEFEAT BROCK LESNAR IN WRESTLEMANIA XXX BETTING AT WILLIAM HILL

The Undertaker is a a 1/25 favourite to defeat Brock Lesnar in WrestleMania XXX betting at WilliamHill.com.

Despite these odds being very short, they are the best price currently available across the many British and Irish based bookmakers with books on this Sunday's pay-per-view.

The shortest price is the 1/200 on offer with Sporting Bet.

William Hill take down WWE betting markets overnight, so it's worth noting that these prices are correct as of 9pm BST.


CORAL OFFERING THE USOS AT 2/5 TO RETAIN THE WWE TAG TEAM TITLES AT WRESTLEMANIA XXX

The Usos are 2/5 betting favourites to retain their WWE Tag Team Championship titles in the WrestleMania XXX pre-show Fatal Four-way.

Coral Bookmakers, who have WrestleMania betting lines up at Coral.co.uk, is the company currently offering the best price on the duo.

The next best price is the 2/7 that is being offered by William Hill.

Prices correct at time of publishing. WrestleMania betting odds can be found under the Non-sports A-Z menu of the Coral sports betting homepage.


YOUWIN & UWIN OFFERING BEST ODDS ON DANIEL BRYAN TO WIN THE WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP AT WRESTLEMANIA XXX

YouWin.com and its Canadian-facing partner, UWin.com, both have Daniel Bryan at odds of 1/7 to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at this Sunday's WrestleMania XXX from New Orleans.

Even though 1/7 is extremely short, it's the best available price across the many betting websites accepting wagers on the pay-per-view.

The next best number is the 1/10 that he is marked up at both Coral and Sky Bet.


SHEAMUS' BATTLE ROYAL ODDS SHORTEN AT PADDY POWER

The only noticeable difference in the betting odds for this Sunday's Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at PaddyPower.com has been a change in price for Sheamus.

When I last checked in yesterday, the Irishman was available at odds of 10/1. As of right now, he is marked up at 7/1.

A case of patriotic punters, perhaps?

The two favourites to win the match are Alexander Rusev and The Big Show.  Both their odds have remained as they were yesterday.

Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal Prices as of 2pm Friday 4th April

WrestleMania markets can be found on Paddy Power's WWE betting page.

PLACE WRESTLEMANIA XXX SIDE BETS WITH BETFAIR

If you're looking for some side wagering on this Sunday's WrestleMania pay-per-view, then Betfair is the place for you after the oddsmakers have set up unique prop bets in the specials category of Betfair.com.

Customers can wager on propositions like 'Will CM Punk Make A Surprise Appearance?', 'How Many Big Boot & Legdrop Combos Will Hulk Hogan Deliver?', 'Will Hulk Hogan Tear His Tank Top Off?' and my favourite - 'How Many Time Will Hulk Hogan Say "Brother"?'  

Below is a look at each proposition.

Will CM Punk Show Up?

If 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin had £3 to spare, I think he would take the 'Yes' option that's currently set at 10/3. He still believes that Punk will show up this Sunday. The many thinking he won't can get 'No' with a price of 1/6.

How Many Big Boot & Legdrop Combos Will Hulk Hogan Deliver?

There are four options here.

0 is 4/11
1-2 is 6/4
3-4 is 12-1
5+ is 20/1

Will Hulk Hogan Tear His Tank Top Off?

This one is a simple 'Yes' or 'No'. The 'Yes' is 1/14 with the 'No' priced at 6/1

How Many Times Will Hulk Hogan Say "Brother" ?

The line has been set at 5.5. The over is 2/7 and the under is 5/2.


It's not just the props that are being offered by Betfair. Customers can also wager on some of the key matches on the card. 

WrestleMania wagering can be found under 'USA' in the Special Bets section of Betfair.com

AJ LEE VS THE FIELD BACK UP AT BODOG & BOVADA

In yesterday's post where I had a look at the WrestleMania XXX betting odds available at the Bodog and Bovada Sportsbooks, I noted that the odds for the Vickie Guerrero Invitational were off the board. I have since noticed the market is now back up.

When I checked early yesterday, AJ Lee had been priced up at odds of -250 to win against 'The Field'. She can now be backed at odds of -200 (1.50 EU, 1/2 UK).

In this same period, 'The Field' have moved from +170 down to +150 (2.50 EU, 3/2 UK).

All other WrestleMania XXX odds remain as they were yesterday with the two sportsbooks.

OVERNIGHT UNDERDOG ACTION AT 5DIMES

It appears that the underdog bettors have made WrestleMania XXX punts overnight at 5Dimes.eu.

I write this because the lines for some of the outsiders in WrestleMania betting have moved slightly. This has therefore moved the favourites price down a bit.

The odds for the pre-show Fatal Four-way for the WWE Tag Team Championship has seen the 'Any Other Winner' - that is opposing The Usos - go from +320 to +330 (4.30 EU, 33/10 UK). As a result of this change, The Usos are now available at -490 (10/49 UK), a change from the -460 they opened at.

The AJ Lee versus The Field betting for the Vickie Guerrero Invitational has had similar changes.

'The Field' had opened at +165 but is now available at +145 (2.45 EU, 29/20 UK). Lee's price moved from -215 to -185 (1.54 EU, 20/37 UK).

The above cases may simply be the bettor thinking it's worth backing multiple outcomes rather than just one.

Contradicting my last assumption is the fact that there have been changes in other bouts on the card.

The Shield, who opened at -1200 for their six-man tag team encounter against Kane & The New Age Outlaws have seen their odds dip to -900. The backers have laid their money on the heels early. They can currently be bet at odds of +500 (6.00 EU, 5/1 UK), which is a short fall from their opening +600.

The penultimate fixture on the card where the outsider has been backed is in the grudge match between John Cena and Bray Wyatt.

When I observed the odds yesterday evening, Wyatt was available at -530. He is now marked up at -420 (1.24 EU, 5/21 UK) with the book. Cena - who opened at +270 over a week ago and was +350 last night - is now standing at +300 (4.00 EU, 3/1 UK).

The overnight underdog plays have been in favour of Dave Batista in betting on Sunday's WWE World Heavyweight Championship decider. 

The Animal, who had been priced at +2000 yesterday, is now down to +1800 (19.00 EU, 18/1 UK) with the favourite, Daniel Bryan, moving from -3000 to -2000 (1/20 UK) in the same period. Interestingly, the line has not moved for Randy Orton or Triple H. They both remain at +4000 (41.00 EU, 40/1 UK) apiece.

These odds are correct as of 8am BST. For the latest, check out the betting board at 5Dimes.eu
