As you can see in the table above the eventual winner started out at EVS, but was up to 23/20 by Monday evening. This was due to the 'Yes' falling from 7/10 into 8/13.

AEW And NXT Viewership Numbers For August 5 2020

The viewership numbers for last night's episodes of AEW Dynamite and WWE NXT have been released by ShowBuzzdaily.com. 

The winner of the night was, once again, AEW's programme.

It had a total average audience of 901,000 viewers recorded for the two hours. 753,000 tuned in for WWE's offering.

Now that the numbers have been released, Kambi will settle a handful of TV proposition markets that were published for the head-to-head.

For AEW Dynamite's viewership, Kambi asked its customers to gamble on the prospect of the episode pulling in an audience of at least 775,000 viewers.

'Yes' won at odds of 17/20. It's opposing selection, 'No', was also 17/20.

17/20 pricing was also applied to the 'Yes' and 'No' selections in the market for WWE NXT. Kambi asked clients to gamble whether or not the show would have 700,000 or more viewers.

'Yes' will be graded as the winning selection in this market as well.

With the combined audience number for both shows being 1,654,000, a prop market - in which customers gambled on the total being above or below 1,475,000 - will also see 'Yes' winning.

When the market was first installed, both 'Yes' and 'No' were 17/20. However, the 'No' was backed into 3/4 while the eventual winner was pushed out to 19/20.

Kambi asked customers whether or not Dynamite would beat NXT by 75,000 or more viewers.

The actual difference was 148,000 so that means 'Yes' was once again a winning selection. It started out at 9/10, but was down to 3/4 by 4:00PM BST yesterday.

The final prop was specific to the persons 18-49 demographic results for both shows. In the market, customers were asked whether AEW would rank at least twenty-five places above NXT in the chart.

AEW was fifth for the night with a P18-49 rating of 0.36. WWE NXT was in twenty-seventh place with an 0.20 rating.

The schism was twenty-two places. Therefore, 'No' wins. It was 3/4 when I came across the market on Sunday afternoon. It was down to 3/5 the following day.

More SummerSlam 2020 Markets

Sky Bet and Kambi have published markets for the new matches that have been announced for WWE SummerSlam 2020.

WWE United States Champion - Apollo Crews - is a favourite to successfully retain his title against MVP.

As of today, Sky Bet is offering Crews at 1/2 while Kambi has him at a shorter 2/5.

Those looking to gamble on MVP can get 7/4 and 6/4 at Kambi and Sky Bet respectively.

The other match being advertised for the show will see Dominik Mysterio make his in-ring wrestling debut against Seth Rollins.

Mysterio is 8/11 at Sky Bet and 7/10 from Kambi.

A decision in favour of Rollins will pay out at odds of EVENS with both firms.

Wrestling Observer star ratings over/under lines have also been published for the two bouts.

The oddsmakers have set the line at two-and-three quarter stars for the US Championship contest. The line for Dominik Mysterio versus Seth Rollins is three-and-a-quarter.

I've placed a wager on the Mysterio/Rollins match to be awarded '3.25 Stars or More' at 7/10,

The reason why I've placed the bet is because I've been impressed with what I've seen of Dominik so far. Add in Rollins and I think it has potential to do better than three-and-a-quarter stars.

Last night's episode of WWE Smackdown on FOX had a total average audience of 1,892,000 viewers with 1,873,000 for the first hour and 1,911,000 tuned in for its second.

This is according to the TV ratings analysis website, ShowBuzzdaily.com, that is used by Kambi to settle its professional wrestling TV proposition markets.

As per usual, clients had two Smackdown-specific markets to gamble on this week.

In the first, Kambi asked whether or not 1.85 Million people or more would be counted as having watched Friday's show. 

With the number being over, the winning selection will be 'Yes'. As you'll see below, it was EVENS while the option to bet on Smackdown getting lower than 1,850,000  was a 7/10 favourite.

In the second market, the bettors were asked whether or not Smackdown's number would beat Raw's viewership by 250,000.

'Yes' will win this market as well. That's because there was a 275,333 difference between last night's result and the 1,616,667 total average that the July 27th Raw was recorded as having.

The eventual winning selection was a 4/5 favourite.
