In the most recent 5Dimes update, I noted that Braun Strowman's odds had dipped from +1,500 to +1,350. The odds have continued to slip as the Monster Among Men is now +1,250.

Brock Lesnar remains a favourite to successfully retain the title, However, he has drifted out from -320 into -300 with 'The Field' versus Reigns being cut from +240 to +220.

Individually, Samoa Joe has moved out to +325 from +300 and Roman Reigns from +1,000 to +1,500 since this morning.

Kambi Publishes Wrestling Observer Star Ratings Specials For SummerSlam 2017

As you can see, the traders have put the WWE Universal Championship match down as a 3/5 favourite. It's closely followed by Kevin Owens' challenge for AJ Styles' US Championship at 5/4.

At the bottom of the list is the 'Any Other Match' option that will cover bouts that are not on the list (Cass .vs. Show etc) or are added to the card at a later point.

A 5 Star (Or More) Special
The oddsmakers are also offering 10/1 odds on ANY match on the night receiving one of Meltzer's famous five stars or more.

Over/Under Markets
The traders have also published a plethora of over/under markets where customers can attempt to bet whether or not the Newsletter's editor rates a match higher or lower than the line that each match has been set.
Every match on the card has been given a line. I'll cover them more extensively over the weekend, but - for the time being - I'll share with you the lines.

SummerSlam Trios Match Added To Paddy Power's Coverage

The Paddy Power Sportsbook has added another match market to its coverage of this Sunday's WWE SummerSlam event.

The bout - which was added to the event's Kick Off yesterday - will see Jason Jordan and The Hardys team up to take on The Miz and The Miztourage in a rematch from Monday.

As of the time of writing, the oddsmakers have placed the heels as 4/6 favourites. Jordan and The Hardys are 11/10.

For what it's worth, it was the latter who won Monday's meeting.

Kambi's SummerSlam 2017 Match Markets

The Kambi oddsmakers have began to publish their WWE SummerSlam 2017 match markets ready for Sunday's event. In this post, I'll put up the odds as soon as they're released. They're in no particular order.

WWE Cruiserweight Champion, Akira Tozawa, is a 4/5 favourite to successfully retain his title against the former holder, Neville. A victory for the challenger will pay out at odds of 9/10.

The New Day are 3/5 in the WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship market. Their opponents - The Usos - are 6/5.

Randy Orton is 11/10 to defeat Rusev. A successful bet on the Bulgarian Brute will pay out at odds of 13/20.

Finn Balor is a 1/8 favourite to overcome his nemesis, Bray Wyatt (4/1).

WWE Raw Tag Team Champions, Cesaro and Sheamus, find themselves as 3/1 underdogs in the market where they're up against Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins (1/5).

Naomi is 2/5 to retain the WWE Smackdown Women's Championship with a decision over Natalya (7/4).

In the other women's title match, Alexa Bliss is 4/5 to go over WWE Raw Women's Championship contender, Sasha Banks. A victory for Banks will pay out at 9/10.

John Cena is a 3/5 favourite for his battle with Baron Corbin (6/5).

WWE US Champion, AJ Styles, is a short 1/5 to overcome the challenge of Kevin Owens (3/1).

Big Cass is 1/8 for his bout against The Big Show (4/1).

The Miz and the Miztourage are 7/10 favourites to get a win over The Hardys and Jason Jordan (EVS) on the pre-show match that was announced yesterday night.

WWE Champion, Jinder Mahal, is 5/2 to successfully retain the title against Shinsuke Nakamura. The traders have placed Nakamura at 1/4.

A market that had been available weeks ago, where clients could have a bet on who walks out of Brooklyn as WWE Universal Champion, has been republished. The odds are as follows:

Brock Lesnar 3/10
Samoa Joe 11/4
Roman Reigns 7/1
Braun Strowman 10/1

Carmella Cash-In At SummerSlam Betting

In the most recent post, I noted that the Kambi Oddsmakers had republished their market where customers could bet on the timeframe when Carmella cashes in her championship title shot.

I noted that the odds for the cash-in occurring at SummerSlam had been moved to 6/4 from 3/5 in the 'Date of Briefcase Cash-in' market. Since publishing, I noticed that there is a SummerSlam specials market on the same site where you can get Carmella cashing in at a more valuable 7/2. This can be found in the SummerSlam card and event predictions markets that are found on the websites that use Kambi's betting platform.

It's also worth mentioning that, if you believe Carmella is cashing in at SummerSlam, the Paddy Power Sportsbook is offering a slightly better 4/1 in its specials for Sunday.

Kambi's MITB Cash-In Markets Republished

The Kambi oddsmakers have republished their Money in the Bank markets for the first time since Baron Corbin's failure at the close of the most recent episode of WWE Smackdown.

The markets are now obviously only focused on the women's Money in the Bank cash-in. 

Two of the three markets remain unchanged.

It's still 1/100 for the cash-in to be successful and 10/1 for Carmella to fail in her attempt to become WWE Smackdown Women's Champion.

The oddsmakers still have 7/10 for the cash-in to occur during a pay-per-view, WWE Network special or (Any other) while a winning punt on a cash-in during an edition of Raw or Smackdown is even money.

It's the 'Time of Cash-in' market that have been readjusted. This is mainly because one selection - 'Between 1st Day After Money in the Bank But Before SummerSlam' - has now expired.

WWE Money in the Bank 2017 Women's Cash-in Date

They've moved 'During SummerSlam' up from 3/5 to 6/4 and have also increased 'Between 1st Day After SummerSlam But Before Survivor Series' from 5/4 to 6/4.

The selections that have been snipped are ones that are for later this year and into 2018. 'Between Survivor Series But Before WrestleMania' is now 3/4 from 5/4, 'During WrestleMania' went from 15/1 to 10/1 and '1st Day After WrestleMania Or Later' was cut from 17/1 into 12/1.

I think it's worth mentioning something that has been reported in case anyone is betting on the later selections on this board.

There is a report out there that is claiming WWE is unhappy with its toy partner, Mattel, because of something to do with a Naomi title belt. The story states that, because the Naomi title belt cannot be produced in time for Christmas, WWE is extending Naomi's reign and it could last right up to WrestleMania.

It's codswallop.

I have shown this story to two separate parties to see what they thought of it. Both came back confirming to me that - to put it as politely as I can - Naomi's reign as champion being extended because of a toy has no credibility whatsoever. 

Samoa Joe Favourite To Be SummerSlam Main Event Fall Guy

In a post published yesterday, I noted that the Paddy Power Sportsbook had released a betting market where customers could have a punt on the person who loses in the main event of this Sunday's SummerSlam.

When it first went live, the oddsmakers had Braun Strowman as the favourite. This is because he is the outsider with the heaviest odds to win the match. However, as I noted yesterday, I believe that - even though I don't think he'll end up winning the Universal Championship in a few days - he should not be the person who is pinned or submitted.

The punters evidently agreed. Shortly after the market launched, the oddsmakers moved Samoa Joe to favouritism and pushed Strowman into second-place.

I can understand why it could be Joe, but I've looked at somebody else.

I made a case for Roman Reigns at 8/1. If you missed it, I think he is worth a look because - if the end result is Reigns claiming the WWE Universal Championship from Brock Lesnar in a singles match in the future - he could easily be the person who takes the fall on Sunday.

There must have been others who took the 8s. As it stands right now, the traders are offering 6/1 for The Big Dog.

WWE SummerSlam 2017 Main Event Fall Guy Betting

The champion, who is favourite to retain, has moved up to 6/1 from 11/2.

I'm fascinated to see how this one plays out. In my opinion, it's really a choice between Reigns or Joe.

Strowman Dips To +1,350 In SummerSlam Betting

Braun Strowman's odds to win the WWE Universal Championship at this weekend's SummerSlam 2017 pay-per-view have dipped in a market that's available from the 5Dimes Sportsbook.

When I checked in earlier today, the oddsmakers had The Monster Among Men out at +1,500. Since that time, however, they've snipped him into +1,350.

As a result of the change, the bookies have improved Brock Lesnar's number from -350 to -320 while cutting 'The Field' versus Lesnar from +250 to +240.

The individual odds for Samoa Joe (+300) and Roman Reigns (+1,00) are unchanged.

5Dimes' SummerSlam odds are found under 'Other Sports' on the 5Dimes Website.

Banks Favourite In 5Dimes' SummerSlam Market

5Dimes customers appear to once again side with Sasha Banks  to win the WWE Raw Women's Championship at this Sunday's SummerSlam.

A market for the title match opened three days ago with Banks and the WWE Raw Women's Champion, Alexa Bliss, at -120 pick 'ems.

The market remained stationary until yesterday evening when the oddsmakers moved Bliss up to +115 and Banks to -155. However, shortly afterwards, the pair were back to where they started off.

As of this morning, Banks has now moved into -175 while the champion has drifted out to +135.

I noted yesterday that the betting is the complete opposite over here in Europe as Bliss is the favourite. She's currently 1/2 while Sasha Banks is 6/4 on Paddy Power's WWE Betting Page.

The rest of 5Dimes' SummerSlam markets remain unchanged since last night's update. You can see an image of all of the odds below.

5Dimes SummerSlam 2017 Betting Odds

Odds correct as of 7am BST. The latest can be found under 'Other Sports' on the 5Dimes Betting Board.

Backing The SummerSlam 2017 Main Event To Go 20 Minutes Plus

One of the WWE SummerSlam 2017 specials that are currently available on both the Paddy Power and Betfair websites is an over/under where customers can bet on the length of the WWE Universal Championship match.

As of the time of writing, the oddsmakers have the following options:

19:59 and Under 8/11
Over 19:59 EVS

For what it's worth, I have blindly gambled on the over.

The main reason why I've backed this selection is similar to why I took the over for the fatal 5-way at Extreme Rules earlier this summer  - it's because the match consists of the top stars from Raw and should therefore have enough time dedicated to it.

To be honest, I do have one minor reservation about this bet.

With a six-man match announced this evening, it's now a thirteen match card. There is a possibility of matches going over their allotted time and this could eat into the other bouts on the card. With the Universal Championship match likely to be the main event, then it's open to having some time scratched.

With that said, WWE is no longer tied to a PPV schedule as such. The company told its PPV partners a while ago that some shows could extend beyond their usual cut-off point.

I keep refreshing my memory about the Exteme Rules over/under as it allows me to think I've taken the right side.

I backed the Fatal 5-Way to go over twenty-eight minutes in June. It managed to barely pass the line as it went a little over twenty-nine minutes. On Sunday, the line is eight minutes shorter. I think it's doable.

The market is available from Paddy Power's WWE Betting Page and Betfair's 'Special Bets' Page.

5Dimes' WWE SummerSlam Odds For Thursday Night

5Dimes WWE SummerSlam 2017 Betting Odds As Of 11pm On August 17th

Here are the 5Dimes Sportsbook's WWE SummerSlam 2017 betting odds as of 11pm BST this evening.

Brock Lesnar's price to successfully retain the WWE Universal Championship has moved in within the past hour. He had been -280 for most of the day, but has now been cut into -350.

As a result, the oddsmakers have increased the odds for a Samoa Joe win from +285 back to +300, Roman Reigns from +800 to +1,000 and Braun Strowman from +1,100 to +1,500.

If you'd like to back 'The Field' against Lesnar, then you're now looking at taking +250. This is an improvement from the +200.

In the most recent post, I noted that the WWE Raw Women's Championship market had moved in favour of Sasha Banks as the challenger's price had drifted out to -120 from -155 while Alexa Bliss has drifted out from -120 to +115. This is no longer the case as the pair are both back to -120 each.

The WWE Championship market hasn't moved since this morning's update.

Odds correct as of 11pm BST and taken from the 5Dimes Website.

Sasha Banks' SummerSlam Odds Move In At 5Dimes

Sasha Banks' odds to win the WWE Raw Women's Championship match at this Sunday's SummerSlam 2017 show have moved in from -120 to -155 in a market that's available from the 5Dimes Sportsbook.

The challenger to Alexa Bliss' title had opened at -120 along with the champion when the market was first installed a couple of days ago.

Both wrestlers were at pick 'em until today's move.

With Banks evidently being backed, the oddsmakers have pushed Alexa Bliss up to +115 from -120.

Interestingly, it's Bliss who is being backed in the European sportsbooks (read this post).

Odds correct as of 10pm BST and taken from the betting board on the 5Dimes Website.

Paddy Power SummerSlam Odds Update

There have been a few changes to some of the WWE SummerSlam 2017 betting markets from Paddy Power since the most recent post where I published the odds as of 8:14pm.

Here are the tables with the latest odds.

17/8 4:14pm

The customers have continued to back Naomi to successfully retain the WWE Smackdown Women's Championship.

Kevin Owens
AJ Styles
17/8 4:14pm

AJ Styles' price has descended further. This time moving from 1/4 to 1/6.

Randy Orton
17/8 4:14pm

Rusev's odds have moved in from the opening 8/15 into 2/5.

Bray Wyatt
Finn Balor
17/8 4:14pm

Balor's descent has continued.

Alexa Bliss
Sasha Banks
17/8 9:20am

The WWE Raw Women's Champion, Alexa Bliss, has moved in from 4/7 to 4/9.

The remaining markets are still showing the same prices as I noted in the most recent post.

Odds correct as of 9:15pm BST. They can be found on Paddy Power's WWE Betting Page.

Paddy Power's SummerSlam Odds 4 Hours Later

It has been a little over four hours since the oddsmakers from Paddy Power's Sportsbook installed a batch of WWE SummerSlam 2017 betting markets, so I've decided to have a look over them to see where the punters have been betting at this early round.

WWE Smackdown Women's Champion, Naomi, has been backed from 5/6 into 8/13. As a result, her opponent - Natalya - has moved out to 6/5. She also started out at 5/6.

There has been no change in the WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship market. The New Day, who are the current titleholders, are 4/7 favourites and The Usos are 5/4.

It appears as though the customers have backed newly-crowned WWE Cruiserweight Champion, Akira Tozawa to retain the strap against former champ, Neville. The favourite has moved from 11/10 to 8/11 while Neville has drifted to EVS from 4/6.

AJ Styles' odds to successfully retain the WWE US Championship have plummeted from 6/5 into 1/4 while Kevin Owens has leaped to 23/10 from 8/13.

The Rusev versus Randy Orton match market is still showing the early pricing. The Bulgarian Brute is an 8/15 fave to Orton's 11/8.

Baron Corbin versus John Cena has also stayed where it opened. The Lone Wolf is 13/8 and Cena is 4/9.

Big Cass is now 3/10 after opening at 1/2. His opponent - The Big Show - has moved out to 11/5 from 6/4.

There has been a flip in the market where Finn Balor takes on Bray Wyatt.

Balor, who will wrestle under his Demon King guise, was 5/4 when I first found the market. This was a crazy price considering the return of the Demon plus Wyatt already won on Monday night. The punters appear to be of the same mindset as Balor has been slashed into 1/6. Anyone who thinks Wyatt will get the victory can now back him at 7/2, which is an increase from 4/7.

The above matches were all of the markets that went up shortly after 4pm BST. The other match odds are as follows:

Ambrose and Rollins
Cesaro and Sheamus
17/8 10:22am

The WWE Raw Tag Team Championship market has seen the customers siding with the challengers. The market opened this morning and Ambrose and Rollins have moved from 1/2 to 1/3 across the day.

Alexa Bliss
Sasha Banks
17/8 9:20am

The WWE Raw Women's Championship market has seen the titleholder, Alexa Bliss, move from 8/11 to 4/7.

Shinsuke Nakamura
Jinder Mahal
11/8 10:22am
13/8 10:45pm
17/8 2:30pm

I noted earlier that Jinder Mahal's odds to retain the WWE Championship has dipped for the first time since this market opened six days ago.

3/8 Opened
4/8 11am
5/8 11:30pm
7/8 1pm
15/8 9pm
16/8 7pm
17/8 10:30am

In the Universal Championship market, Roman Reigns' price has moved in from 6/1 to 9/2. 

Odds correct as of 8:14pm BST and taken from The Paddy Power WWE Betting Page.
