I will return tomorrow morning looking at any changes that have occurred overnight.



Sky Bet's WWE Survivor Series 2014 Betting Markets Now Open

WWE Survivor Series wagers can now be placed by Sky Bet customers after the betting company published odds for this Sunday's pay-per-view on its website SkyBet.com.

As of this evening, the British betting firm is only accepting wagers on three of the matches on the card. They are: the Divas Championship bout, the grudge battle which sees Dean Ambrose take on Bray Wyatt and the main event traditional Survivor Series match-up between Team Cena and Team Authority.

Nikki Bella is 4/9 to win her match against current Divas Champ, AJ Lee. If you're looking to back Lee to win and retain, you can find her at odds of 13/8.

Ambrose has been given a 8/13 price to score the victory in his match with Bray Wyatt. A punt on Wyatt is 6/5.

Now that there has been an added stipulation that Team Cena's members will be fired if they were to lose on Sunday, the prices reflect that the oddsmakers are expecting the babyfaces to leave the event as victors.

Team Cena have been set at 1/4 with Team Authority available at 11/4.

I will publish updates on odds and addition of more matches as we head closer to the pay-per-view. It's worth noting that these markets are tentatively set to close at 1am on Monday morning.

Odds correct at the time of publishing. For the latest, check out Sky Bet's Wrestling Betting Page.

Fatal 4-Way Added To 5Dimes' Survivor Series Coverage

Odds for the WWE Tag Team Championship match at this Sunday's WWE Survivor Series have now been added to the betting board at 5Dimes.com.

The match will see Gold & Stardust defend their titles in a fatal 4-way against the teams of The Usos, Los Matadores and The Miz & Damien Mizdow.

Customers have the option to wager on either Gold & Stardust or 'The Field'.

As of the time of posting, the titleholders are -230 (1.43 EU, 10/23 UK) with The Field +170 (2.70 EU, 17/10 UK).

This addition now means there are four matches to bet on at 5Dimes.

I will return later this evening with a look at the prices for the rest of the card.

Bray Wyatt & Team Authority Drift

The only interesting changes in WWE Survivor Series betting since I checked last night has been for Bray Wyatt and Team Authority.

It's evident that Team Cena and Dean Ambrose have been backed in their respective markets.

Team Authority had been +250 when I last observed the odds. They're now up slightly to +300 (4.00 EU, 3/1 UK) with Cena's squad going from -350 to -420 (1.24 EU, 5/21 UK).

Bray Wyatt, who had been priced at -110, is now out at +140 (2.40 EU, 7/5 UK). His opponent is now -180 (1.56 EU, 5/9 UK) after having been -130 at around 11pm GMT yesterday.

There has been no change in betting for the WWE Divas Championship match.

AJ Lee remains a +170 (2.70 EU, 17/10 UK) outsider with the challenger, Nikki Bella, -230 (1.43 EU, 10/23 UK).

I'm hoping to see more sportsbooks publish WWE odds over the next few hours. There will be updates when they are up.

Odds correct as of 9:13am GMT. For the latest, check out the betting board at 5Dimes.com.

5Dimes' Survivor Series Odds As Of 23:17 GMT Wednesday

Here are the 5Dimes Sportsbook's WWE Survivor Series odds as of 11:17pm GMT this evening.

I will return tomorrow with a post looking at any changes that may have occurred in the meantime.

Survivor Series betting markets can be found under 'Other Sports' on the betting board at 5Dimes.com

More On Team Authority Becoming Outsiders

When I published my most recent post, I hadn't read the Smackdown spoilers. My surprise at seeing Team Cena favourites in the betting now has an explanation.

There has been an added stipulation to Sunday's main event whereby - if Team Cena loses - they'll be fired.

At the risk of looking like a fantasy booker, I can still see Team Authority winning. Team Cena's loss could be reversed by Vince McMahon on Monday's episode of Raw.

I'm glad a new stip has been added to the match now. It now balances opinion on how things will go, which is always good to see from a betting perspective.

Team Authority Move Into Outsider Role In Survivor Series Betting

In what I believe to be quite a surprise, Team Authority has drifted out to the role of outsiders in WWE Survivor Series 2014 betting at the 5Dimes Sportsbook.

When odds for this Sunday's main event were initially published in the early hours of this morning - the team, made up of Luke Harper, Rusev, Mark Henry, Kane & Seth Rollins, were at -120 pick 'em alongside their rivals. They are now +180 (2.80 EU, 9/5 UK) with the sportsbook.

Team Cena has moved to -260 (1.38 EU, 5/13 UK) over the same course.

The early money has also landed on Nikki Bella to defeat AJ Lee in the WWE Divas Championship match. Bella's price had originally been -135, but is now -175 (1.57 EU, 4/7 UK) while Lee's odds have drifted out to +135 (2.35 EU, 27/20 UK) from -105.

The third, and final match, on the board has seen Dean Ambrose favoured to win against Bray Wyatt.

Ambrose is currently -215 (1.47 EU, 20/43 UK) with Wyatt +165 (2.65 EU, 33/20 UK). When I checked in at 1:30am GMT, Wyatt was +110 and Ambrose was -150.

5Dimes' betting odds can be found under 'Pro Wresling' in the 'Other Sports' category of 5Dimes.com

5Dimes Publishes Betting Odds For Survivor Series 2014

This Sunday sees World Wrestling Entertainment host its twenty-eighth annual Survivor Series pay-per-view. As has been the case with a lot of the most recent events on the WWE calendar, the 5Dimes Sportsbook has opened betting markets for the matches scheduled to take place on the night.

As of this morning, the firm is only accepting wagers on three of the matches set for Sunday - the grudge match between Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt, the WWE Divas Championship bout and the main event which sees Team Cena wrestle Team Authority in a Survivor Series match.

Ambrose has opened as a -150 (1.67 EU, 2/3 UK) favourite with his opponent marked down as a +110 (2.10 EU, 11/10 UK) outsider.

Even though AJ has been given odds of -105 (1.95 EU, 20/21 UK) to retain her championship with a straight-up win, it's Nikki Bella who has been marked as the favourite. Her price is -135 (1.74 EU, 20/27 UK).

The 5Dimes oddsmakers have sent out balancing odds for the main event.

Both Team Cena and Team Authority are -120 (1.83 EU, 5/6 UK). It's now the role of the bettor to determine clear favourites and underdogs.

I'm expecting the rest of the match markets to be added to the betting board over the next couple of days.

Odds correct as of the time of posting. For the latest, check out the betting board at 5Dimes.com

Hulk Hogan A 16/1 Shot To Win I'm A Celebrity 2014

Hulk Hogan has been given odds of 16/1 on winning the next series of ITV's 'I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here'.

The television series, which features celebrities living within the Australian outback for three weeks as part of a reality contest, is set to return to television screens later this month. As contestants aren't announced until a day before the show launches, newspapers have been running regular columns speculating on the 2014 line-up.

Names such as Michelle Keegan, Tulisa Contostavlos, Roy Keane and Robbie Savage have done the rounds. However, the Daily Mirror's most recent addition to the list is the Hulkster. Claiming he appears on the producers' 'secret hitlist'.

Seeing that no name has been officially announced, doesn't that mean everyone is on a 'secret hitlist'?

With the name now being linked, PaddyPower.com has added Hogan to the I'm a Celebrity betting market that can be found in the TV Specials section of the website.

Even though the 16/1 price might appeal to wrestling fans hoping to see the former wrestler enter the jungle, it's worth noting that bets will still count even if he does not participate in the series.

A number of years ago, Dwayne Johnson was rumoured to be taking part in the 2012 edition of the hit show. His name even appeared in betting markets despite Johnson himself stating it was nothing more than a 'garbage rumor'.

In my opinion, the Hulk Hogan story is also a garbage rumour. That's not to say I wouldn't enjoy seeing him take part.

Where To Bet On The WWE Survivor Series 2014

The 28th Annual WWE Survivor Series will take place from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri on November 23rd. In this post, I'll share with you a list of online bookmakers where you'll likely find betting odds for the event.

I write posts like this every month. In order to get a better idea of where you'll find WWE betting lines, I believe it's easier to do two things. Firstly, I look back at the previous pay-per-view, in this case WWE Hell in a Cell, and list the betting websites that had markets open for that show. I'll then list the sportsbooks that had WWE Survivor Series betting odds last year.

Bookmakers That Offered WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 Betting Odds

There were four bookies that offered Hell in a Cell odds. 

5Dimes Sportsbook

The 5Dimes Sportsbook has been offering WWE betting for years and was the first company to open betting lines for Hell in a Cell. Odds were published late Monday / early Tuesday in the week leading up to the event. It's worth noting that the company had also set WWE Night of Champions betting odds up on the Monday/Tuesday before that show too. So, if they do go by a similar schedule, the markets could be up around Tuesday 18th November. That's a guess, don't quote me on it!

When they are up, they'll be found categorised in the 'Other Sports' menu of the betting board at 5Dimes.com.

Paddy Power

The Irish bookmaker Paddy Power is another constant offerer of WWE betting markets. The firm has published odds for every pay-per-view on the WWE calendar for many years and I would be very surprised if the company didn't have anything up for the coming show.
Paddy Power's WWE Hell in a Cell betting odds were first published on the Tuesday evening leading up to the show, giving fans five days to get their bets in.
If they stick to a similar schedule, we should get prices as early as the 18th. If not, they should be around no later than the Thursday before the event as they're always the first of the British/Irish books to have prices up for World Wrestling Entertainment shows.
When they are up, you can find them under 'Sports Novelties' at PaddyPower.com

Sky Bet

Sky Bet is another company that has been producing betting lines for WWE events for years. 
WWE Hell in a Cell betting markets were first published on the Thursday before showtime, so - once again a guess - we should see Survivor Series prices around the 20th of November.
It should be worth noting that Sky Bet is the last of the British/Irish betting firms to close their books. Odds are usually set to close at the moment the events start (1am, or in the case of last month's time change due to clocks changing: 12am).
Wrestling betting can be found on the A-Z menu of the sportsbook at SkyBet.com

Boylesports

The Irish bookmaker Boylesports occasionally publishes betting odds for some of the major WWE shows of the year. Hell in a Cell isn't one of the big events, but the Irish bookie had opened markets for it. As Survivor Series could be seen by some as still being one of the top four shows of the year, it's possible that Boylesports could have something.
The company's Hell in a Cell markets were first up around the Friday of the show, but were taken down some time on the Saturday never to be seen again.
If Survivor Series prices are up, you'll find them under 'Novelty/TV' on Boylesports.com

Bookmakers That Offered WWE Survivor Series Betting In 2013

Five betting firms produced odds for last year's edition of the Survivor Series. Three of which were the aforementioned: 5Dimes, Paddy Power and Sky Bet. The rest are:

William Hill

It wasn't that much of a surprise to see William Hill not on the list of bookmakers that had WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 betting odds as the company has missed one or two shows already this year. That's not to say they will miss out on the Survivor Series. 
William Hill's WWE betting odds are usually up around the Thursday or Friday before a pay-per-view and can be viewed under 'Novelty/TV' on the sportsbook at WilliamHill.com

YouWin & Uwin

YouWin.com and its Canadian-facing partner Uwin.com had been publishing WWE odds for some of the WWE's pay-per-views through the back end of 2013 and for some of 2014.  The last event both companies produced odds for was Payback, so I'm unsure where either stands in regards to WWE betting right now.

If either decides to offer its customers prices for Survivor Series, they can be found under 'Specials'. Customers in Europe can visit YouWin.com while Canadian visitors can go to UWin.com

The Rest

With Survivor Series still being regarded as one of the main events on the WWE pay-per-view calendar, and especially seeing as it'll be free to new subscribers of the WWE Network, it's possible that betting firms that had offered WWE odds for previous events this year might show back up. Here are a few more to keep an eye out for.

Ladbrokes

Ladbrokes had offered WWE betting for a handful of events this year. The last show the company had lines up for was SummerSlam in August.
If available, markets will more than likely be up on the weekend of the show and can be found on the sports menu at Ladbrokes.com

Betfair

Betfair has published odds for some of the major and minor shows of 2014 starting with WrestleMania XXX. The company's last dip into the world of WWE Betting came in September when they had lines up for Night of Champions. 
If they do become available, WWE Survivor Series odds will be found under 'Special Bets' on the sportsbook at Betfair.com

I hope this has been of some help to you. Best of luck with your bets!

Paddy Power Closes WWE Hell In A Cell 2014 Betting Markets

Paddy Power's traders have taken down all markets for tonight's WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.

I have contacted customer services and was told that that it doesn't look like the markets will be re-adjusted.

I'll still keep having a check to see if they reappear, but it's not looking likely.

This now leaves both the 5Dimes Sportsbook and SkyBet.com as the alternative options to wager on tonight's show.

The Miz Backed In Europe

European bettors have spent the early part of Sunday betting The Miz to win the WWE US Championship from Sheamus at WWE Hell in a Cell tonight.

Earlier this morning, the best price you could find on a Miz victory was the 16/5 available at PaddyPower.com. As of 1pm, the price has shortened to 12/5.

On the other side of the market, Sheamus' most valuable odds are the 4/11 currently available with SkyBet.com.

The off-shore bookmaker, 5Dimes.com, currently has both men tied at the equivalent of 5/6.

I'll return shortly with a post highlighting where the best odds are at both Paddy Power and Sky Bet.

Odds correct as of 1pm GMT. For the latest pricing, check Paddy Power's WWE Betting Page and Sky Bet's Wrestling Page.

5Dimes' Sunday Morning WWE Hell In A Cell 2014 Betting Odds

Rusev has been the bettors' favourite at the 5Dimes Sportsbook since I last checked the WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 betting odds at 5Dimes.com.

The Bulgarian Brute was -900 for most of Saturday. However, sometime after my check at around 10:35pm last night, more money evidently went his way.

He's now -2,000 (1/20 UK) with the book. 

Rusev's opponent, The Big Show, has gone out from +500 to +1,000 (11.00 EU, 10/1 UK) in the same time.

There have been other changes in betting. 

Paige has dropped from +500 to +340 (4.40 EU, 17/5 UK). Either the wrestling fans are expecting she'll defeat AJ Lee for the WWE Divas Championship or the bettors had simply taken the odds on offer. Regardless, AJ has moved from -900 to -510 (1.20 EU, 10/51 UK). Odds that might look more attractive to people expecting a successful title defence.

In the other women's match, Nikki Bella continues to be favoured to win against her sister, Brie. With the stipulation that the loser has to act as the winner's personal assistant for a month, it makes sense for the heel to win here. The punters moving Nikki from -530 to -650 (2/13 UK) assists my opinion. Brie has gone from +350 to +420 (5.20 EU, 21/5 UK) since last night.

Surprisingly, The Usos were backed in overnight betting.

The twins have descended from +500 to +340 (4.40 EU, 17/5 UK) with current WWE Champs, Gold & Stardust, moving from -900 to -510 (1.20 EU, 10/51 UK). Just like with the Divas Championship bout, the change could have been a combination of fans or bettors liking the underdog odds.

Dolph Ziggler remains a favourite to win his WWE Intercontinental Title against Cesaro. He's currently -400 (1.25 EU, 1/4 UK), a slight change from the -320 he was last night. Cesaro, on the other hand, has moved from +240 to +280 (3.80 EU, 14/5 UK).

The prop bet where customers can bet on the wrestler that scores the first fall in the best of three fall match between Ziggler and Cesaro remains in favour of Cesaro. 

He's -185 (1.54 EU, 20/37 UK) with Ziggler +145 (2.45 EU, 29/20 UK).

Other non-mover are Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins in the market for their Hell in a Cell match.

Ambrose remains stationary at -280 (1.36 EU, 5/14 UK) with Rollins +200 (3.00 EU, 2/1 UK).

Randy Orton has once again started to drift out in wagering on the other Hell in a Cell cage battle of the evening. When I checked last night, I noted he was +100. As of this morning, his price is +130 (2.30 EU, 13/10 UK).  John Cena has moved from -140 to -170 (1.59 EU, 10/17 UK).

The markets will remain open right up to the start of each match, so there's still enough time for changes to happen between now and then.

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