Balor's No Mercy Odds Continue Descent

Finn Balor's price to defeat Bray Wyatt at WWE No Mercy on Sunday has once again dropped in a market that's available on the Paddy Power website.

Date/Time
Finn Balor
Bray Wyatt
18/9 3pm
8/11
EVS
8pm
"
"
19/9 11am
8/15
11/8
11pm
1/2
6/4
20/9 11am
"
"
4pm
3/10
11/5

As you can see, the Irishman has dropped from the 1/2 he was when I looked through the markets at 11am BST this morning.

It makes sense for Balor to be seeing so much interest from wrestling bettors. 

The current storyline has focused on the fact that Balor has only defeated Bray Wyatt while wrestling as the Demon King when they met at SummerSlam 2017. The story appears to be setting up Balor getting a decision without having to use his alter-ego to do so.


No Change In WWE No Mercy 2017 Betting Markets As Of 11am BST Wednesday Morning

There have been no changes made to the WWE No Mercy 2017 betting markets that are available on the Paddy Power Website.

All the markets are showing the same pricing as last night. You can read about all the odds in THIS POST.

By the way, Betfair's markets - that are similar to Paddy Power's - have now been synced to its website.

WWE Raw Tag Team Champions, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, have been cut from 4/6 into 4/9. As a result, their challengers - Cesaro and Sheamus - have jumped out to 6/4 from 11/10,

Another favourite whose price has lowered is Finn Balor. He went from 8/11 to 8/15 while his nemesis, Bray Wyatt, is now 11/8 from EVS.

Looking For Your WWE No Mercy 2017 In-Play Specials/Props Requests

First published on September 17th.

William Hill's WWE No Mercy 2017 match markets will be published next week. As well as having the opportunity to wager on the match results, clients will also get the opportunity to bet on in-play specials that will be installed in the hours leading up to the pay-per-view.

For the past year, I've published a post in the days/weeks leading up to WWE shows where William Hill customers can leave any prop or special bet ideas they might have for the company's staff to have a look through and - if possible - add to their list to go live ahead of PPVs.

If you have any ideas for the bookies, you can leave them in the comments section below. The staff will look through your suggestions and if they are able to, your bet will be published a few hours ahead of No Mercy

To save you some time, there are a few things that cannot be priced up. A few examples are:

- Anything that might take place on the Kick Off as these markets are for main card only
- Requesting prices on legitimate injuries occurring during the match (also includes asking for odds on blood being spilt through blading etc)
- Asking for odds on catchphrases, chants or quotes made during the broadcast
- Pyrotechnic or other production malfunctions
- Match placement on the night (ie asking for odds on a certain match being the opener)
- Male on female violence (ie asking X to punch Y)

To give you a few pointers of what can be suggested, here are a few specials that were published for SummerSlam:


  • Carmella to cash in her MITB briefcase and win
  • The Undertaker to make an in-ring appearance
  • Brock Lesnar to win and Naomi to leave as champion
  • Balor, Nakamura, Styles and Bliss to win, Over 1 RKO, Undertaker to hit a Tombstone in-ring

When available, you'll be able to view William Hill's match and specials markets on the page below:

Nikki Bella Still +1,200 To Win DWTS

Dancing With The Stars Season 25 Betting Odds From Bovada

As noted in a post published last week, the Bovada and Bodog Sportsbooks have priced up betting odds for the twenty-fifth season of Dancing With The Stars.

WWE's Nikki Bella is still +1,200 to beat the field and win the Mirrorball Trophy.

Since publishing last week's post, I look around at a few websites that cover this show. I came across a blog on the USA Today website that hyped up Nikki's chances simply because of social media.

The writer trumpeted the fact that the Bella Twin has seven million Facebook fans, three million Twitter followers and then added an extra 45 million Facebook and 10 million Twitter followers for John Cena to try and boost their gripe that Nikki's price is too high.

Nikki Bella and Dancing With The Stars
Quote from USA Today's 'For The Win' Website
I understand the writers' reasoning, but it should be worth pointing out that a portion of the Facebook and Twitter follows quoted are likely based in countries that cannot vote. With that said, John Cena is already doing some canvassing for his partner. He sent out the following tweet earlier today:

The first episode will go head-to-head with tonight's edition of WWE Raw.

The markets are found under 'Entertainment' on the following websites:


Paddy Power's No Mercy Odds: 5 Hours Later

It has been five hours since I first noticed Paddy Power's WWE No Mercy 2017 betting odds had been published.

All but one of the markets are identical to 3pm.

Date/Time
Roman Reigns
John Cena
18/9 3pm
5/4
4/7
7pm
4/7
5/4
8pm
1/2
6/4

As you can see above, the odds for Roman Reigns to get a decision over John Cena in one of the two big matches on the night have fallen from 5/4 into 1/2.

It's worth noting that Reigns opened as the outsider despite Kambi's markets already establishing him as a favourite over a week ago. Therefore, the flip could have either been the oddsmakers realising they had the wrong person as favourite and then switched the selections around or punters took advantage of Reigns' appealing price knowing that he was a favourite elsewhere.

Whatever happened, the bottom line is Roman Reigns became the industry favourite.

No Mercy 2017 Odds From Paddy Power

Paddy Power has published a few markets for this Sunday's WWE No Mercy 2017 PPV.

Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins are 4/6 to successfully retain the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship against former titleholders, Sheamus and Cesaro (11/10).

Finn Balor is an 8/11 favourite to get a decision over his nemesis, Bray Wyatt (EVS).

John Cena is 4/7 for his meeting with Roman Reigns (5/4).

WWE Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar, is 1/3 to successfully retain his belt against Braun Strowman (15/8).

Hell In A Cell 2017 Odds Update For September 18th

In the most recent post, I noted that Roman Reigns' odds to defeat John Cena at WWE No Mercy have continued to decline.

The same could be said of Jinder Mahal's price to get a decision over Shinsuke Nakamura at WWE Hell in a Cell 2017 on October 8th.

A market for the WWE Championship meeting was published on the same day that No Mercy prices were installed. At the time, the oddsmakers had the current WWE Champion - Mahal - a 7/4 underdog.

As you can see in the table below, the titleholder's odds have been lowering across the days that I've visited the market.

Date/Time
Shinsuke Nakamura
Jinder Mahal
8/9 5pm
2/5
7/4
11/9 10:30pm
"

12/9 5:00pm
13/20

17/20
17/20
17/9 12pm
"
"
18/9 1:30pm
19/20
3/4

In my opinion, the favouring of Mahal coincided with the news that WWE is visiting India in early December. Despite being a tour for the Raw brand, I think there is a strong chance that Jinder Mahal and the Singh Brothers will be part of that lineup. 

To put it bluntly, it would be absurd if they aren't featured on that tour when considering the fact that the company has given Jinder Mahal a reign as WWE Champion for the Indian market.

One thing that I have noted in most of the recent posts about this match is that it doesn't appear to be a Hell in a Cell bout. 

With Nakamura already losing to Mahal at SummerSlam (he also lost in Osaka over the weekend, but this doesn't really count), they could find a way for Nakamura to win the match, but not the title. 

Of course, this only matters if the plan is for Mahal's reign to extend beyond October 8th.
