WHERE TO BET ON WWE NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS 2014

Now that SummerSlam is behind us, it's time to look towards next month's show.

World Wrestling Entertainment's next pay-per-view is going to take place on September 21st from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. In this post, I'll point out the sports betting websites where I'm expecting odds for the event to be published in order to give you a head-start to get the best prices.

As per usual, I'll list the companies that offered prices for the most recent pay-per-view.

5Dimes Casino & Sportsbook

If you're looking to bet on WWE Night of Champions, then the first port of call should be 5Dimes.com.

The company is more often than not the first to publish betting odds each month. The firm has consistently opened markets for years and I would be very surprised if they didn't in September.

5Dimes' SummerSlam coverage began on the Wednesday before the show. These markets stayed open right up until the start of each match. No other sportsbook accepting wagers on WWE events keeps its lines up for this long. It should be the first and last place you go to for WWE betting opportunities.

For more information on the company, you can read BetOnWrestling.co.uk's review of 5Dimes' WWE Betting Markets.

When they're up, you'll be able to find the markets listed under 'Other Sports' at 5Dimes.com

Paddy Power

If you're based in a country where you can legally become a customer of Paddy Power, then I urge you to register an account as - next to 5Dimes - Paddy Power is one of the most popular venues for WWE bettors.

Based in Ireland, the company has promoted WWE betting for a long time and, just like 5Dimes, always has odds up for events each month.

During SummerSlam week, PaddyPower.com had odds up on the Thursday.

To find out more about Paddy Power and WWE betting, you can read BetOnWrestling's Paddy Power Review.

When live, you'll be able to view the odds under 'Sports Novelties' at PaddyPower.com or by simply following this direct route to Paddy Power's WWE Betting Page.

Sky Bet

Sky Bet is another betting firm that offers WWE betting opportunities every single month.

One of the most popular reasons why people choose Sky Bet to gamble on WWE is because the odds close at 1am. Most of the other websites like Paddy Power shut their books with a few hours left remaining before the PPV airs. Sky Bet's coverage means last-minute bettors can place late wagers if they have missed the cut-off point elsewhere.

Sky Bet's SummerSlam markets were opened on the Thursday before the event.


When live, WWE odds can be found under 'Wrestling' on the sports betting menu at SkyBet.com or by following a direct route to Sky Bet's WWE Betting Page.


William Hill

William Hill, one of the oldest bookmakers on the planet, has been offering WWE betting markets for years. However, there have been rare occasions when the company hasn't published WWE pay-per-view lines.

During SummerSlam week, odds were first published on the Friday before. It's also worth mentioning that the company takes down prices overnight so if you're reading this in the evening and no odds are around, this might be a reason why. With that noted, the markets are republished early the next day.

If you'd still like to read more about William Hill's WWE betting markets, you can do so at BetOnWrestling.co.uk's William Hill page.

WWE markets can be found under 'TV.Specials' of the sportsbook at WilliamHill.com. An easier way to reach the page is to follow this direct link to William Hill's WWE Betting Page.

Boylesports

Another Irish bookmaker - Boylesports.com -has offered WWE betting markets for the major PPVs on the WWE calendar and did so for SummerSlam. However, I am unsure whether the company will price up odds for a show like Night of Champions.


Betfair Sportsbook

The UK's Betfair Sportsbook joined in on the WWE betting scene earlier this year when it opened markets for WrestleMania XXX and the two events that followed. They returned for SummerSlam and did offer competitive odds in comparison to other books.

One of the most things I like the best about the Betfair Sportsbook is that the traders have offered prop bets in the past. 

SummerSlam betting markets first went live on the Betfair website on the Saturday morning before the event. 

You can read more about Betfair on BetOnWrestling's Betfair Page.

When live, you'll fnd the odds n the 'Special Bets' section of the sportsbook at Betfair.com.

Ladbrokes Bookmakers

The oddsmakers at Ladbrokes.com have been offering their customers ways to bet on WWE for the most recent pay-per-views including SummerSlam. 

In the months when Ladbrokes have posted odds for WWE events, I have noticed they're usually up on the day of the show. However, it's worth noting that the SummerSlam betting odds were available the day before. Could this be a new approach?

On the topic of of approaches - I have noticed that it does take a while for 'Wrestling' to appear on the Ladbrokes.com sportsbook menu so - if you ever find yourself on the website and want to know for sure whether the company has published pay-per-view odds, an approach I suggest is to type 'WWE' into the website's search feature and it will lead you there.

You can read more about the company on BetOnWrestling's Ladbrokes Page.

***

There are other sports betting websites that have promoted WWE betting in the past.

For example. YouWin.com & its Canadian-facing partner, UWin.com, Betfred and Coral.co.uk have done so at certain points in 2014, so it might be worth checking them out on the week of Night of Champions. More companies are listed over at BetOnWrestling's Directory Of Wrestling Oddsmakers.

Be sure to add WWELeaks.org to your favourites as I'll be publishing regular odds updates throughout Night of Champions week. 

Good Luck with your bets.

HOW THE SUMMERSLAM 2014 ODDS SHIFTED

In Monday's post titled Dolphins Said, The Results Read : WWE SummerSlam 2014 Edition, I made note of the SummerSlam 2014 betting odds at the time the Reddit/Twitter user, Dolphins1925, announced his 'spoilers' on Twitter.

I thought I would do a follow up with a short post showing what I noticed when tracking the betting markets from the day they were opened all the way through to when they were closed

The first table shows the opening odds for every wrestler that appeared on the main card. 

Click image to expand
Notice how some of the early favourites like AJ Lee, Jack Swagger and The Miz had become outsiders by the time the pay-per-view started?

The second table pinpoints the approximate time when insider money began landing on the eventual winners. It also shows how some of these selections moved from being betting outsiders into favourites within a short space of time.

Click image to expand

The smart money must have been wagered some time between 5pm EST/10pm BST and 6:20pm EST / 11:20pm BST because this is the point where the match winners' odds shortened. 

One of the factors that made it easier to distinguish when the insider money landed was because the sportsbook had incorrectly predicted the winners when they set up the odds earlier in the week.

That's not to say we wouldn't have noticed the shifts. We would have. They just would have looked less dramatic than they do here.

DOLPHINS SAID, THE RESULTS READ : WWE SUMMERSLAM 2014 EDITION

The Reddit and Twitter user - Dolphins1925 - was back yesterday night to give out 'spoilers' for SummerSlam 2014. In this post, I'll go through what was announced and compare them with the betting lines.

The first tweet of the evening read:

My source has guaranteed me the leaks are back. The results for SummerSlam are listed below

What? The 'leaks' actually went away?

Here are the rest of his spoilers along with notes about what the odds were at the time they were announced.

Seth Rollins will defeat Dean Ambrose

The odds had Rollins as a -4,500 (1/45 UK) favourite.

Dolph Ziggler will defeat The Miz

Ziggler was -2,000 (1/20 UK) and ended up winning. He had been an underdog all the way through to the latter stages.

Roman Reigns will defeat Randy Orton

Reigns had been favoured since the SummerSlam betting markets were first published. He was heavily backed late in the day and was -6,000 (1/60 UK) when Dolphins revealed his name.

Paige will defeat AJ Lee

Smart money moved Paige into the role of fave at around 11pm BST. Her odds were -1,200 (1/12 UK) when the tweet was published.

Rusev will defeat Jack Swagger

Rusev was another name the smart money moved. He had been an outsider until late. He was -1,500 (1/15 UK) when Dolphins gave out the 'spoiler'.

Stephanie McMahon will defeat Brie Bella

The bettors were backing both selections throughout the weekend. When the insider money came along, McMahon's price shortened and was -2,000 (1/20 UK) at the time of the tweet.

Bray Wyatt will defeat Chris Jericho

To be fair, they didn't need betting odds to come up with that one. Chris Jericho is back to put Wyatt over. As Jericho won match one, it made sense for him to lose the second. For the record, Wyatt was -4,500 (1/45 UK) when Dolphins gave him away as a winner.

Brock Lesnar will defeat John Cena

Lesnar was -6,000 (1/60 UK) after the heavy money landed on him.

As you see, Dolphins' spoilers were in line with the betting odds once again. It's also worth noting that Dolphins did not announce a winner for the pre-show match. It would have been a blind pick as no sportsbook had marked up odds for the match. With the betting favourites winning, the casual observer would be tricked into believing Dolphins had inside information.

For a more detailed observation of  these odds, read How The SummerSlam 2014 Odds Shifted.

I'll update this page when I know for sure.

RAPID WWE SUMMERSLAM 2014 ODDS SHIFTS

There have been some notable odds changes in the SummerSlam 2014 betting markets at the 5Dimes Casino & Sportsbook.

The timing does play into previous events where odds shifts have been in line with match finishes.

Here's what I have noticed. I have highlighted the most interesting.


  • Roman Reigns is now -4500 after being -1200 at 11pm. Randy Orton moved from +600 to +1500
  • Paige, who had been an outsider for all of the betting period, has now become a favourite at -900. AJ Lee is now +500
  • Seth Rollins, a -475 fave a short while ago, is now -1700. Dean Ambrose drifted out from +325 to +800
  • The Miz, who was -120 at 11pm, became a +500 underdog within twenty minutes. Dolph Ziggler is now a -900 favourite after being a dog all the way through until 11pm.
  • Stephanie McMahon's odds have gone from -350 to -1200 in the past half hour. Brie Bella - on the other hand- has gone from +250 to +600
  • Brock Lesnar was -1050 at 11pm and is now -4500. In the same period, John Cena went from +550 to +1500
  • Bray Wyatt, who had been at -1200 for most of the evening, is now available at -4500 with Chris Jericho drifting out from +600 to +1500
  • Jack Swagger, a favourite throughout the past four days is now an underdog with a price of +500. Rusev, who was +155 at 11pm is now -900

SUNDAY'S SUMMERSLAM 2014 BETTING ODDS BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 10PM & 11PM BST

Here are the changes that have occurred in WWE SummerSlam 2014 betting at 5Dimes.com in the past hour.


  • Roman Reigns has moved from -650 to -1200
  • The Miz and Dolph Ziggler are both -120. Ziggler had been +210

  • Bray Wyatt remains -1200 with Chris Jericho +600
  • Brock Lesnar moved from -455 to -1050
  • The most notable move in the past hour has been Paige who saw her odds go from +168 to -150. As a result, AJ Lee is now +110 after being -225

CLOSING TIMES FOR WWE SUMMERSLAM 2014 SPORTSBOOKS

With William Hill having closed down its WWE SummerSlam 2014 betting markets not so long ago, it's worth pointing out the other sportsbooks closing times.

The next sportsbook set to close its SummerSlam match markets is PaddyPower.com. The company's WWE Betting Page lists 11:00pm BST as the cut-off point for bets.

Both Sky Bet and Ladbrokes.com are set to remain open until the pay-per-view starts at 1am.

5Dimes.com should have its coverage open throughout the night.

I'm unsure what time Betfair,com will close its book.

SUNDAY'S SUMMERSLAM 2014 BETTING ODDS BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 9PM AND 10PM BST

Here's what has been going on at the 5Dimes Sportsbook between the hours of 9pm and 10pm BST.


  • Paige's odds have dropped from +220 to +168
  • Roman Reigns' price is now -650 after being -450 at 9pm
  • Brock Lesnar has gone from -320 to -455
  • Bray Wyatt remains at -1200 with Chris Jericho +600
  • The Miz moved from -180 to -290
  • Seth Rollins is now -190 after being -115 with Dean Ambrose drifting from -125 to +150

STEPHANIE NOW A +100 OUTSIDER IN SUMMERSLAM 2014 BETTING

The see-saw that has been Brie Bella versus Stephanie McMahon SummerSlam match betting now sees the latter as an outsider.

A number of hours ago, I noted that the pair have been neck-and-neck in betting since the odds went live on Wednesday evening. They still are.

Sort of.

Since the last update, McMahon has moved from -105 into +100 (2.00 EU, EVENS UK) with her opponent now going from -135 to -140 (1.71 EU, 5/7 UK).

This is the first time I have seen McMahon given plus odds since the book opened.

I'm expecting a few more twists and turns in the betting on this match as we head closer to bell-time.

THE TALE OF THE BRIE BELLA VS STEPHANIE MCMAHON BETTING ODDS

One of the most intriguing markets on the SummerSlam 2014 betting board at 5Dimes.com has been for the Brie Bella versus Stephanie McMahon match-up.

When the match was initially priced up on Wednesday, the sportsbook placed both females at -120 giving the customers an even betting field to dictate which selection should be considered a favourite or outsider.

Since the market opened, both selections have been going at it back and forth. One moment Brie has been slightly favoured and then the next Stephanie has.

Early this morning, I noticed that Brie had started to drift out. Her odds were +115 with Stephanie at -155. I thought the pair would finally be separated from a betting perspective.

I was wrong.

The early Sunday money has been landing on Brie. She's now a -135 (1.74 EU, 20/27 UK) with Stephanie very close behind at -105 (1.95 EU, 20/21 UK).

I'm expecting a schism to have occurred before their match takes place. Until then, I'll remain interested in seeing the bettors battle the bookmakers on this one.

Odds correct as of 3pm BST. For the latest, check out the Sportsbook at 5Dimes.com.

JOHN CENA DRIFTS OUT FURTHER & MORE

John Cena's odds have now started to drift out in WWE SummerSlam 2014 betting at 5Dimes.com.

The market for tonight's WWE World Heavyweight Championship main event opened with the current champion a +170 underdog with his challenger, Brock Lesnar, priced at -230.

The odds have been in favour of Lesnar throughout the betting period. However, Cena's odds did start dipping slightly in yesterday's round of betting.

On my last observation of the match markets last night, I noted that Cena had dropped down from +350 in to +260.

Since that time, his odds have began to ascend once again. As of right now, he is +400 (5.00 EU, 4/1 UK) with Brock Lesnar -600 (1.17 EU, 1/6 UK).

Below are some notes on the odds for the rest of the SummerSlam card.


  • The Bray Wyatt vs Chris Jericho match remains as it was last night with Wyatt a -2000 favourite and Jericho +1000
  • Brie Bella is once again an outsider for her match against Stephanie McMahon. She is currently +115 (2.15 EU, 23/20 UK) with McMahon -155 (1.65 EU, 20/31 UK)
  • Jack Swagger money is still coming in. He is now -245 (1.41 EU, 20/49 UK) after being -140 last night. Rusev is priced +175 (2.75 EU, 7/4 UK)
  • Paige's price has fallen overnight. She was +250 at 12am BST but is now +180 (2.80 EU, 9/5 UK). AJ Lee is -260 (1.38 EU, 5/13 UK)
  • Seth Rollins has been backed from -140 into -180 (1.56 EU, 5/9 UK). Dean Ambrose is currently marked up at +140 (2.40 EU, 7/5 UK)
  • Dolph Ziggler is now +180 (2.80 EU, 9/5 UK) a drop from +200. The Miz is -260 (1.38 EU, 5/13 UK)
  • Randy Orton's price has fallen the furthest. He was +900 last night, but is now +600 (7.00 EU, 6/1 UK). Roman Reigns can be backed at -1200 (1/12 UK)

ANOTHER CHANGE IN AMBROSE VS ROLLINS SUMMERSLAM 2014 BETTING & MORE

There has been another change in the betting market for the lumberjack match at tomorrow night's WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view.

The 5Dimes Casino & Sportsbook originally placed odds of -120 on both Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins as a way to let the public decide which wrestler should be favoured to win the bout.

Since that time, both stars have changed betting roles on numerous occasions.

Earlier today, I noted that Deam Ambrose had moved into the role of favourite after being an outsider for part of yesterday. 

He is now back to being an underdog at even money. On the other side, Rollins is priced at -140 (1.71 EU, 5/7 UK).

Here's what else the Saturday bettors have been betting on:
  • Roman Reigns' odds have gone from -1700 to -1850 (2/37 UK)
  • AJ Lee has moved from -260 to -350 (1.29 EU, 2/7 UK)
  • Dolph Ziggler has dropped from +250 to +200 (3.00 EU, 2/1 UK)
  • Rusev has gone down to +100 (2.00 EU, EVS UK) after being +250 earlier this morning
  • Bray Wyatt has been backed from -1700 to -2000 (1/20 UK)
  • John Cena's odds had been around +350 at certain points during the day but have now dropped to +260 (3.60 EU, 13/5 UK)
  • The Brie Bella versus Stephanie McMahon market now lists Brie at -115 (1.87 EU, 20/23 UK) with Stephanie at -125 (1.80 EU, 4/5 UK). Earlier today it was Brie at -125 and her opponent at -115.
Odds correct as of 11:30pm BST. For the latest check out the betting board at 5Dimes.com.

LADBROKES' WWE SUMMERSLAM ODDS EASIER TO FIND

Just thought I would publish an additional blog post with an update to the most recent post where I alerted you to the fact that Ladbrokes have published WWE SummerSlam odds.

In the post, I noted how you would have to type 'WWE' into the search function on the Ladbrokes sportsbook homepage to find WWE markets.

Like last month's Battleground markets, the company has now added 'Wrestling' to the left hand menu at Ladbrokes.com.



LADBROKES PUBLISHES WWE SUMMERSLAM 2014 ODDS

WWE SummerSlam 2014 betting odds have now been published at Ladbrokes.com.

The company lists markets for all eight matches set to take place on tomorrow night's pay-per-view. Here are the prices as of 3pm BST.

AJ Lee has opened as a 4/11 favourite to win and retain the WWE Divas Championship against Paige (2/1).

Brie Bella is an 11/10 outsider against Stephanie McMahon (4/6).

Bray Wyatt is a short-priced 1/12 to defeat Chris Jericho. Customers looking to bet on Jericho can find him at 6/1.

Rusev is listed as a 6/4 underdog to Jack Swagger's 1/2 in the market where bettors can predict which wrestler will win the flag match.

Both Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins are 5/6.

Randy Orton has been priced up as a 7/2 outsider in his grudge battle against Roman Reigns (1/6).

The penultimate match on the board is the Intercontinental Championship fixture between current champion, The Miz, and Dolph Ziggler. The challenger is a 5/2 outsider with Mizanin 2/7.

Ladbrokes has listed Brock Lesnar as the likely winner of the main event which sees current WWE World Heavyweight Champion, John Cena take on the former UFC champ.

Lesnar is 2/7 with his rival marked at 5/2.

BETFAIR PUBLISHES WWE SUMMERSLAM 2014 ODDS

Betfair Sportsbook customers can now place wagers on this year's SummerSlam following the company's decision to open up betting markets at Betfair.com.

The sportsbook has priced up odds for every match set to take place on tomorrow night's card.

AJ Lee is currently marked up as a 2/5 favourite against Paige (7/4) in betting on the WWE Divas Championship match.

Bray Wyatt is a short 1/12 to defeat Chris Jericho in their return match from last month's Battleground event. Punters looking to back Jericho for another upset win can find him at 9/2.

Brie Bella is an 11/10 outsider in her battle against Stephanie McMahon (4/6).

The book lists Seth Rollins at 8/11 against Dean Ambrose (EVS) in the lumberjack match between the former Shield colleagues.

Ambrose and Rollins' former partner, Roman Reigns, is a 1/7 fave against Randy Orton (4/1) in the market for their match.

Rusev is a 6/5 underdog in his flag match against Jack Swagger. Customers looking for a babyface winner can get Swagger at 8/13.

The Intercontinental Championship market lists The Miz as the likely winner. He has been given a price of 3/10 while Dolph Ziggler is out at 11/5.

The main event - which sees Brock Lesnar challenge John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship - is the final match on the board. The book has placed Lesnar as the likely winner. Punters looking to back him can get 2/7 odds. Customers thinking Cena can leave Los Angeles with a win against the former UFC Champion can get him at 5/2.

WWE betting markets can be found under 'Special Bets' on the sportsbook menu at Betfair.com. For an easier route, you can view the odds live by going direct to Betfair's Specials Page.


DEAN AMBROSE RETURNS TO THE ROLE OF FAVOURITE & MORE

Dean Ambrose is once again a favourite in the SummerSlam 2014 betting markets at 5Dimes.com.

When odds for his lumberjack match against Seth Rollins were initially published, both wrestlers were priced at -120 with the sportsbook. 

The -120 price indicated that the 5Dimes odds compilers thought the match could go either way and left the bettors to decide both a clear favourite and underdog.

Since the market went live on Wednesday, the former Shield members have been switching betting roles constantly. Last night's wagering has seen Ambrose the bettors' choice.

He is currently priced at -175 (1.57 EU, 4/7 UK) with Rollins +135 (2.35 EU, 27/20 UK). 

I would not be surprised to see this change once again before the end of the day.

Here are the other selections that have been bet on in the late Friday / early Saturday round of wagering:
  • The Miz has gone from -270 to -350 (1.29 EU, 2/7 UK)
  • Jack Swagger from -260 to -350 (1.29 EU, 2/7 UK)
  • Roman Reigns from -1500 to -1700 (1.06 EU, 1/17 UK)
  • AJ Lee -230 to -260 (1.38 EU, 5/13 UK)
  • Bray Wyatt -1500 to -1700 (1.06 EU, 1/17 UK)
  • Brock Lesnar -270 to -350 (1.29 EU, 2/7 UK)
The Stephanie McMahon vs Brie Bella match hasn't moved since last night. Here are the odds for both:

Stephanie McMahon -115 US, 1.87 EU, 20/23 UK
Brie Bella -125 US, 1.80 EU, 4/5 UK

Odds correct as of 8:30am BST. For the latest, check out the betting board at 5Dimes.com

Here are the WWE SummerSlam 2014 betting odds currently available at WilliamHill.com.

Click to expand
As is usually the case with the company, the odds are set to go down later on this evening. I fully expect them to be back up tomorrow, though.

Looking at the above markets, I notice four prices that are the best across all the websites that are accepting wagers on SummerSlam. Stephanie McMahon (4/5), The Miz (2/5), Seth Rollins (5/6) and Brock Lesnar (1/3) have shorter odds elsewhere.

As a result of this change, Rollins' opponent - Dean Ambrose - has gone from -160 in to +120  (2.20 EU, 6/5 UK).

STEPHANIE MCMAHON NOW 4/7 IN SUMMERSLAM BETTING AT PADDY POWER

Stephanie McMahon has become a favourite in SummerSlam 2014 betting at PaddyPower.com.

When odds for this Sunday's pay-per-view were first published yesterday afternoon, she was a short outsider with even odds. Her opponent - Brie Bella - was priced up at 8/11.

Since that time, the sportsbook customers have evidently been placing wagers on McMahon as she is now 4/7 with Bella now at 5/4.

Brie remains a favourite at SkyBet.com with Stephanie still available at 11/10.

Odds correct as of 10:50am BST. For the latest, check both Paddy Power's WWE Betting Page and Sky Bet's WWE Betting Page.

WILLIAM HILL OPENS WWE SUMMERSLAM 2014 BETTING MARKETS

The William Hill Sportsbook has now published prices for this Sunday's WWE pay-per-view -SummerSlam.

The company is offering its customers the opportunity to wager on the eight matches set to take place on the card.

Here are the prices as of 9am this morning.

Bray Wyatt is a 1/12 favourite against Chris Jericho. Jericho, who defeated Wyatt in their first match last month, is a 6/1 outsider here.

AJ Lee is 4/9 to successfully retain the WWE Divas Championship against Paige (13/8).

Brie Bella and Stephanie McMahon are fairly close in the market for their bout. Stephanie gets the edge with a 4/5 price to Brie's 10/11.

Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins are tied in betting for their Lumberjack Match. Both are available at 5/6.

Rusev is an underdog with a price of 13/8 in the flag match against Jack Swagger. Punters looking to back Swagger can get him at 4/9.

The Miz is a short 2/5 to defend the WWE Intercontinental Championship with a win. His opponent - Dolph Ziggler - is 7/4 on the board.

Randy Orton has been given a 6/1 outside chance to defeat Roman Reigns (1/9).

The company is expecting Brock Lesnar to wrest the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from John Cena in the main event. The former UFC Champ is 1/3 with the current WWE Champ marked up at 9/4.

As per usual, I'll make regular checks of these and every SummerSlam betting market online. It's worth noting that William Hill does tend to take down its WWE coverage overnight.

SummerSlam betting markets can be found under 'TV/Specials' at WilliamHill.com. Alternatively, you can view them directly on William Hill's WWE Betting Page.

JOHN CENA'S ODDS SHORTEN IN WWE SUMMERSLAM 2014 BETTING AT 5DIMES

Thursday night betting has seen John Cena's price shorten in the SummerSlam 2014 betting markets on the 5Dimes Casino & Sportsbook website.

Even though he is still classed as an underdog for Sunday night's main event, the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion is +190 (2.90 EU, 19/10 UK) on the betting board. This is a drop down from the +350 he was available at yesterday night.

As a result of the price change, Brock Lesnar has moved from -530 to -270 (1.37 EU, 10/27 UK).

Other underdogs that have seen their odds change overnight are Seth Rollins who has seen a short dip from +130 to +120 (2.20 EU, 6/5 UK) and Brie Bella, who has gone from +140 in to +100 (2.00 EU. EVENS UK).

It should be pointed out that this is in no way a reflection of insider betting. It's either wrestling fans backing the person they believe will win the match or general bettors taking the odds.

Odds correct as of 8:30am BST. For the latest, check the betting board at 5Dimes.eu.

BRIE BELLA NOW AN OUTSIDER IN WWE SUMMERSLAM 2014 BETTING AT 5DIMES

Thursday daytime betting has seen Brie Bella move into the role of outsider for her match against Stephanie McMahon at Sunday's WWE SummerSlam 2014 pay-per-view.

When the odds were initially published by the 5Dimes Casino & Sportsbook, both Bella and McMahon were priced up at -120. This more or less meant the odds compilers were leaving the customers to determine the betting role.

Since that time, Bella's price has moved into the positive and is currently resting at +140 (2.40 EU, 7/5 UK) with her opponent -130 (1.56 EU, 5/9 UK).

I am not surprised the odds have started to turn this way as the feeling among wrestling fans is that the finish could end up being screwy.

Bella remains a favourite at both Paddy Power and Sky Bet as of 12am BST.

The full SummerSlam betting market can be found under 'Other Sports' on the betting board at 5Dimes.com.

I will return tomorrow morning with another look at the SummerSlam betting markets across all sports betting websites accepting wagers on the event.

I am also expecting another sportsbook to publish odds within the next few hours so will update this blog when those prices have gone live as well.
