G1 Climax 29 Betting: Ishii .vs. Moxley

Kambi's markets for the G1 Climax have been temporarily taken down now that tonight's event has begun.

Today's B Block main event has had a betting market available for it.

Tomohiro Ishii opened at 6/4 to Jon Moxley's 4/9 when the market was initially published late last month.

Ishii has been the punters' choice as his price descended in the weeks that the market was available. He closed at the 9/10 he was moved to on Tuesday.

As you can see - despite Ishii's price lowering, Jon Moxley remained the bookmaker's favourite. He closed at 4/5.

It should be worth noting that a separate market in which customers could bet on the match being a draw closed at 4/1. It had opened at 5/1 on June 26th.

I backed the draw this morning, but I had backed Ishii at 6/4 because I can't see Moxley getting a decision over him.

The third, and final, market that was available for this match was a Wrestling Observer star rating Over/Under.

Kambi set the line at four-and-a-quarter stars. The 'Under' was a 7/10 favourite, the 'Over' was 13/10 and the 'Exactly 4.25 Stars' selection closed at 43/20 after spending a few weeks at a slightly shorter 21/10.

New 'Champion After..' Markets From Sky Bet

With some of WWE's titles changing owners at Extreme Rules 2019, the oddsmakers from Sky Bet have published new 'Champion After..' markets where clients can place wagers on who they believe will succeed the respective titleholders.

In this post, I'll go through the new markets and point out the favourites in each and - where applicable - I'll mention any selection that grab my attention.

Smackdown Tag Team Champions After The New Day
The bookies have Heavy Machinery 6/4 favourites to be the next Smackdown Tag Team Champions following The New Day. Next on the list are the previous champs, Daniel Bryan and Rowan at 3/1.

WWE Intercontinental Champion After Shinsuke Nakamura
The market in which customers can place bets on Shinsuke Nakamura's successor as Intercontinental Champion has Ali as a 5/4 favourite. Even though I haven't bet on him, it's understandable to see Ali at the top as there was a tease of a feud between the two when they met backstage during a segment on this week's episode of Smackdown.
Aleister Black as an 11/8 second-favourite is another one I get. In fact, I think I'm going to back him as soon as I finish writing this post.
Previous champion - Finn Balor - is 5/1. It is worth noting that there are reports he'll be taking a hiatus from the company once his SummerSlam commitments are done.

WWE US Champion After AJ Styles
Ricochet is an even-money favourite to regain the US Championship from AJ Styles. Also in the mix is Rey Mysterio at 4/1.

WWE Universal Champion After Brock Lesnar
The market for Brock Lesnar's successor as WWE Universal Champion has Seth Rollins at the top. He's at EVS.
I've been overthinking what could happen with Lesnar and I've backed a handful of names other than Rollins because I have a feeling this will be a long reign.
The names I've gone for are Ricochet 20/1 (It's a gamble on the brief interaction between them on Monday night being intentional for the future), John Cena 33/1 (I'm still going with the idea that Cena will get the seventeenth title win), Kevin Owens 16/1 (already backed Owens to win the Royal Rumble when I thought Lesnar versus Owens for the WWE Championship could be a Mania match if Owens' babyface run continues).

I'll write more about the markets in future posts.

G1 Climax 29 Observer Star Ratings Betting Update For July 18th

This week's issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter features Dave Meltzer's reviews of nights two, three and four of this year's G1 Climax tournament.

As Kambi has published star ratings Over/Under markets for a handful of the bouts during the tourney, I have decided to do weekly posts where I write about the O/U markets' results.

There were only two markets available for the three nights that were reviewed. Both were for matches that took place on Sunday.

Kazuchika Okada .vs. Zack Sabre Jr.
The oddsmakers set the line for Kazuchika Okada versus Zack Sabre Jr. at four-and-three-quarters with the 'Under' a 4/5 favourite.

G1 Climax 29 Observer Star Rating Betting -Okada .vs. ZSJ

As you can see, the market remained stationary from June 26th right up to the day of the match. The winning selection was the 'Under' as the match was given four-and-a-half stars.

Hiroshi Tanahashi .vs. KENTA
The first 'Over' - in regards to Kambi's markets for this tournament struck for the first time in the main event of Sunday's card.

 G1 Climax 29 Observer Star Rating Betting - Tanahashi .vs. KENTA

The line for Hiroshi Tanahashi versus KENTA was set at four-and-a-quarter stars. Just like with the market for Okada .vs. ZSJ, there were no adjustments made to it.

'Over 4.25 Stars' won at EVS due to the match getting four-and-a-half from Dave Meltzer.

Before today's issue was published, the highest amount of stars that had been given were four-and-half. They were rewarded to Will Ospreay .vs. Lance Archer and Kazuchika Okada .vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi from night one. The new matches to beat are Ospreay .vs. SANADA and EVIL .vs. Kota Ibushi. Both were from night three and both received four-and-three-quarters in the review.

I wrote about the opening and closing star ratings odds for today's match between Kota Ibushi and Will Ospreay. We'll have a week to wait until the results are in for that one. The next match that has an Over/Under line is for a match I am looking forward to - tomorrow's B Block clash between Jon Moxley and Tomohiro Ishii.

I plan to write more about the match tomorrow morning, but - as it stands - the line is 4.25 with the 'Over' at 13/10, 'Under' at 7/10 and the option to wager on the match getting 'Exactly 4.25 Stars' is 43/20. The middle option had started off at 21/10 in June.

Two Bouts Win Extreme Rules 2019 Match Of The Night Betting And More

There was a two-way tie for Match of the Night honours in Dave Meltzer's review of WWE Extreme Rules 2019.

However, there was no tie in Kambi's 'Highest Rated Match of the Night' betting market that was available to customers leading up to Sunday's PPV.

That's because the two matches fell under one category in the market - 'Any Male Tag Match'.

The bouts of note were Roman Reigns and The Undertaker's victory over Drew McIntyre and Shane McMahon as well as The New Day's WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship triumph in a triple threat match.

Both received four stars from the newsletter editor.

WWE Extreme Rules 2019 Observer Star Ratings Betting - Highest Rated Match

When the market was first installed. 'Any Male Tag Match' was a 2/1 second-favourite behind the Ricochet versus AJ Styles match for the WWE United States Championship. It had been cut into 33/20 by Sunday night.

The two matches appeared in other Observer star ratings themed markets over the weekend.

Kambi had a head-to-head market where customers could guess which match, out of the two tag title contests, would receive the most stars in Meltzer's review.

The four stars for the WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship match beat out The Revival versus The Usos by a half.

WWE Extreme Rules 2019 Observer Star Ratings Betting - Head to Heads

In Friday's rundown of the markets, I noted that the head-to-head which pitted Roman Reigns and The Undertaker .vs. Drew McIntyre and Shane McMahon against Braun Strowman .vs. Bobby Lashley was a battle of potential low scoring matches. How wrong was I? The Strowman versus Lashley match fell short of tying by a quarter of a star.

WWE Extreme Rules 2019 Observer Star Ratings Betting - Head to Heads

A few prop bets will also be settled now that the issue has been released and winners have been identified.

WWE Extreme Rules 2019 Observer Star Ratings Betting - Prop Bets


The proposition market titled 'Curtain Raiser' allowed customers to bet on the opening match of the main card being awarded the most stars in Meltzer's review. The Reigns/Taker versus McIntyre/McMahon match was in fact the opener, so this means that the 'Yes' won at odds of 5/4.

With two bouts both receiving the highest amount of stars, the prop named 'Joint Winners' will pay out with the 'Yes' winning at 2/1.

With the Smackdown Tag Title match being one of the two winners, the prop named 'Title Match' - which asked customers to bet whether or not a match for any championship received the most stars - was settled with the 1/4 favourite, 'Yes', the correct selection.

The bookies expected the mixed tag team match to be the 'Main Event' and that's why they were offering 1/40 on the last match of the night not being given the most stars in the review. 

(As the Money in the Bank cash-in was not advertised ahead of time, the mixed tag was the qualifying match for this bet.)

The special, in which customers could bet on the 'Exact Star Rating of the Highest Rated Match' will be settled with 'Exactly 4 Stars' winning at the 2/1 customers would have found it from Friday right up until Sunday night.

Finally, the Over/Under lines for all of the matches on Sunday's card will be graded. Here are the lines along with all of the results.

WWE Extreme Rules 2019 Observer Star Ratings Betting - Over/Unders

I was fortunate to have gone 2-0 at Extreme Rules after backing 'Over 2 Stars' in the Smackdown Women's Championship match and 'Over 2.25 Stars' in the mixed tag team match.

The former went over by quarter of a star while the mixed tag easily covered by one full star.

G1 Climax 29 Betting: Ibushi .vs. Ospreay

Kambi's markets for today's G1 Climax main event were closed a little over an hour ago.

The bout will see Kota Ibushi chase a much needed A Block win against Will Ospreay. With that in mind, it isn't surprising to see that the betting went the way of Ibushi. He closed as a 2/13 favourite.

Will Ospreay - who has two points after a win against SANADA on night three - was 11/10 when the market was first priced up, but closed at 7/2.

Both wrestlers are banged up. 

Ibushi has a hurt ankle while Ospreay was touch-and-go for today's match after suffering a neck injury in the SANADA match.

As a result of the injuries, the Over/Under Wrestling Observer Newsletter star ratings markets that Kambi has for the match closed with the 'Under 4.75 Stars' selection snipped from 3/4 into 13/25.

Sky Bet Publishes Another SummerSlam 2019 Market

Sky Bet customers can now wager on the latest match that has been added to the WWE SummerSlam 2019 card.

On last night's Smackdown, its women's champion - Bayley - revealed that she would like Ember Moon to challenge her for the title.

As of the time of writing, the champ is 1/3. A win for Moon will pay out at odds of 9/4.

In THIS POST from yesterday, I noted the firm had created markets for the two SummerSlam bouts that were set up on Monday's episode of Raw.

G1 Climax 29 Betting: Latest Ibushi .vs. Ospreay Odds And More

We're nearly a day away from the G1 Climax tournament resuming with the third round of A Block matches.

New Japan has confirmed that Will Ospreay will fight on. The company pulled him from Monday's card after suffering a stinger in his win over SANADA on Sunday.

Kambi's market for Ospreay's meeting with Kota Ibushi has seen the latter now backed into 2/13. This isn't surprising considering Ibushi is currently 0-2 and will need to pick up some points if he is to get anywhere.

The news of Ospreay's injury, coupled with the fact that Ibushi is also carrying a hurt ankle, has affected the Over/Under Wrestling Observer Star star rating betting line. The 'Under 4.75 Stars' option - which was already a 3/4 favourite - was taken down to 13/25 yesterday.

Ibushi remains a favourite to win A Block. However, his price has been increasing due to him being 0-2.

He went out to 3/5 from 13/25 sometime before 9AM BST on Monday morning. Kazuchika Okada and KENTA - both with two wins out of two - are closing in on him.

G1 Climax 29 - A Block Winner Betting

Another favourite with zero wins after two matches is Tetusya Naito in B Block. He remains at EVS to win B Block, but it's worth noting that the market hasn't been adjusted since Saturday night. This would have been after Naito went 0-1 and before his loss to Taichi in Monday's main event.

G1 Climax 29 - B Block Winner Betting

Naito remains a favourite to be the outright winner although he was moved out from 13/10 into 6/4 yesterday. 

Second-favourite, Ibushi, has continued to move out following his bad start to the tourney. He is now at 21/10 from 9/4.

The selection that has moved in twice in the most recent adjustments has been Kazuchika Okada. The IWGP Heavyweight Champion went from 5/1 to 17/4 before Monday morning and was then taken down to 7/2 by yesterday evening.

You can see all of the current prices - and all the moves I've recorded - in the table below.

Nakamura's IC Title Win At Extreme Rules Settles 2 Markets

Shinsuke Nakamura has just won the WWE Intercontinental Championship from Finn Balor on the WWE Extreme Rules 2019 Kick Off.

This result means that a couple of Sky Bet's specials markets will now be closed.

The first is one in which customers could place bets on the wrestler who became the IC Champ after Balor. Nakamuara will obviously be the winning selection. He was EVS when I pointed out his odds this evening.

The seventh edition of Sky Bet's 'Next Title to Change Hands' market will be settled in favour of the Intercontinental Championship.

As you can see below, the selection was 8/1 when the market was priced up last month. It was cut from 7/1 by June 27th and was still at this price when the market was last made available earlier this week.

Sky Bet - Next Title To Change Hands 7

5Dimes' Owens .vs. Ziggler Market Published

  • No change for Braun Strowman (-165) .vs. Bobby Lashley (+125)

  • As mentioned earlier this evening, Drew Gulak was backed from -410 into -600 today. With Gulak lowering, Tony Nese rose to +400 from +290. Then - sometime between 9PM and 10PM - Nese's price was cut to +364 and Gulak was moved up to -550

Kambi's New Extreme Rules 2019 Markets

As well as William Hill and Sky Bet, the oddsmakers from Kambi have published markets for the two new additions to the WWE Extreme Rules 2019 card for tonight.

They have installed Finn Balor as an 8/13 favourite to successfully retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura (23/20) on the Kick Off.

Kevin Owens is 3/10 to overcome Dolph Ziggler (11/5).

The bookmakers have also priced up Wrestling Observer Star Ratings Over/Under markets for both of these matches.

They've given a line of 2.75 Stars for the Kick Off match and 2.50 for Kevin Owens .vs. Dolph Ziggler.

Prices were correct as of 9:35PM BST. The latest odds can be found on Kambi's WWE Betting Page.

Sky Bet Publishes New Extreme Rules 2019 Markets

Sky Bet is another sports betting firm that has added match winner markets for the two matches that have been added to tonight's WWE Extreme Rules 2019 card.

The firm has priced WWE Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor as a 4/6 favourite to overcome the challenge of Shinsuke Nakamura on the pre-show.

A win for the challenger will pay out at 11/10.

In the second bout confirmed this evening, Kevin Owens will match up against Dolph Ziggler. Owens is a 1/4 favourite while Ziggler is out at 11/4.

William Hill Publishes Markets For Latest Extreme Rules 2019 Matches

The oddsmakers from William Hill have published markets for the two new matches that have been added to tonight's WWE Extreme Rules card.

Finn Balor will defend his WWE Intercontinental Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura on the pre-show.

William Hill is offering the champion at 8/13. A decision in favour of Nakamura will pay out at odds of 6/5.

The other match confirmed for tonight will see Kevin Owens take on Dolph Ziggler.

Owens is currently a 2/7 favourite while his opponent is 5/2.

The match markets can be on William Hill's TV/Specials Page.

Balor .vs. Nakamura For Extreme Rules 2019 Pre-Show

As well as Kevin Owens .vs. Dolph Ziggler being added to tonight's WWE Extreme Rules 2019 card, the company has also announced that Finn Balor will defend his Intercontinental Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura on the Kick Off.

This will be a rematch from a non-title meeting, won by Nakamura, on the most recent episode of WWE Smackdown.

As of the time of writing, there are no match winner markets available. However - if you believe there's a chance of Nakamura winning the strap from Balor - I point you to Sky Bet's 'Intercontinental Champion After Finn Balor' market where tonight's challenger is an even money favourite to succeed Balor.

Owens .vs. Ziggler ON For Extreme Rules

WWE has confirmed that Kevin Owens .vs. Dolph Ziggler will take place at Extreme Rules.

This news means that the two John Pollock and Dave Meltzer prop bets that I wrote about YESTERDAY and TODAY will be settled in favour of the favourites (YES).

Note About Cruiserweight Championship Match Market For Extreme Rules

I have visited the 5Dimes Sportsbook's WWE Extreme Rules 2019 betting markets a few times since this morning's update but have noticed that only one of the markets is showing different pricing than earlier.

The move came in sometime before 5PM BST and has seen WWE Cruiserwight Champion, Drew Gulak, move from -410 into -600.

With the titleholder's price lowered, the bookies have increased his challenger, Tony Nese, from +290 to +400.

You can read the prices for all of the other matches IN THIS POST.

Kambi's Pollock/Meltzer Props Republished

Kambi's 'Battle of the Dirtsheets' proposition markets that I wrote about IN THIS POST yesterday have been republished with both showing adjusted odds.

Dirtsheet Betting - Extreme Rules 2019
Prices as they stood at 6PM BST this evening

The markets have been created following contrasting reports about the WWE Extreme Rules 2019 card.

John Pollock wrote an article on Friday which indicated that Kevin Owens .vs. Dolph Ziggler was planned for tonight's show despite it not having been confirmed while - in another report, this time by Dave Meltzer - there was apparently no matches other than those that are already pencilled in for the show.

With the contrasting news out there, Kambi put up the two markets. The first - titled 'POSTWrestling.com Upvote or Downvote' - allowed customers to bet whether or not an Owens .vs. Ziggler match would take place on the card.

The second allows punters to bet on or against Meltzer's report that there would be no more matches other than those that were written about in the latest issue of Meltzer's Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

The John Pollock market has seen the 'No' lowered from 5/2 into 7/5. I believe those who may have taken the 5/2 have made the correct call.

And here's why.

There is an angle playing out on social media and last night's house show with Shane McMahon having banned Owens from house shows and tonight's event. Owens showed up at the house show and filmed something for the WWE social media account after that where he promised to make Extreme Rules the 'Kevin Owens Show'.

In my opinion, the Owens/McMahon thing is leading to a match at SummerSlam. To get there, I would not be surprised if Owens causes some sort of problems for McMahon and Drew McIntyre in their match against Roman Reigns and The Undertaker.

I cannot see it setting up a match against Dolph Ziggler tonight.

As a result of the 'No' lowering from 5/2 to 7/5, the bookmakers have increased the 'Yes' from 1/4 to 1/2.

The Meltzer-inspired prop titled 'Plans Change' has seen the 'No' (for there NOT to be ANY new matches added to the card) moved in from 7/4 to EVS and has now fallen to 17/20 while the 'Yes' has drifted out from yesterday's 2/5 to 7/10 and now is also at 17/20.

Kambi Installs Markets For New AEW All Out Match

Kambi's oddsmakers have published markets for the latest addition to the AEW All Out card.

At last night's Fight For The Fallen event, The Lucha Brothers offered The Young Bucks the opportunity to challenge for the AAA World Tag Team Championship in a ladder match. This offer was accepted and the bout will take place on August 31st.

Kambi has opened with the current titleholders available as 4/5 favourites. A decision for The Young Bucks will pay out at 9/10.

The bookmaker has also set a Wrestling Observer star rating Over/Under line for the bout. They've gone with 4.75 Stars. Those looking to bet the 'Under' will find the selection at 4/5, the 'Over' is 5/4 and the option to bet on Dave Meltzer rating the match four-and-three-quarters exactly is 2/1.

Looking At A Couple Of RABs For Extreme Rules 2019

For the past few days, there has been an Extreme Rules 2019 RequestABet special that is available on the Sky Bet website that has made me think how the mixed tag team match will end.

The selection I am referring to is 'Becky Lynch to submit Baron Corbin to win their scheduled match' and it's 13/8.

It has been 13/8 ever since I first came across it.

As I mentioned, it stands out to me because I would not be surprised if that's how the match concludes tonight.

Corbin losing like that would be an easy way to get fans to taunt him as he moves away from Seth Rollins and the Universal Championship.

I'll place a small wager on it after publishing this post.

One selection that also stands out, for the wrong reason, is a 33/1 on Brock Lesnar 'to leave with both the Universal and the Raw Women's Championship'.

When I first found that one, I thought 'how does that one work?!' but then I realised that there is a way it could happen. It would need Lesnar to cash in before the match and it would make it a three-way.

It's extremely unlikely, but that is how that bet could win.

G1 Climax 29 Betting: Tanahashi .vs. KENTA

The main event of tonight's G1 Climax 29 round will see Hiroshi Tanahashi take on KENTA.

Betting on the match winner closed at 7AM BST today with Tanahashi a 2/5 favourite.

5Dimes' WWE Extreme Rules 2019 For Sunday Morning

I've just visited the 'Pro Wrestling' betting page on the 5Dimes Sportsbook to check out the prices for the matches that are scheduled for tonight's WWE Extreme Rules 2019. Here are all the latest odds along with notes about changes that may have been made after previous visits.

WWE Raw Tag Team Championship
When I checked in last night. I noticed that both The Revival and The Usos were at -120 pick 'ems to win the Raw Tag Team Championship match. Before that, The Revival were -130 and their challengers were -110. As of this morning, The Revival are down to -160 faves while The Usos have been pushed out to +120.

Braun Strowman .vs. Bobby Lashley
Braun Strowman was a -155 favourite to get a decision over Bobby Lashley in the last man standing match when I visited 5Dimes last night. The selection is now down to -165.
A win for Lashley will now pay out at odds of +125. This is up slightly from +115.

WWE US Championship
The market for Ricochet's WWE US Championship defence against AJ Styles is still showing the same pricing as last night. The champ is -130 and the challenger is -110.

Aleister Black .vs. Cesaro
Aleister Black remains a -675 fave to get the W against Cesaro (+425).

WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship
The market for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship market still has Daniel Bryan and Rowan as -145 favourites to successfully retain their straps, The Field versus the champions is still +105 and The New Day selection has stalled at +425.
There has been a move, though. Heavy Machinery have lowered from +205 to +166.

WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Drew Gulak is still a -410 to overcome Tony Nese (+290).

WWE Smackdown Women's Championship
Bayley remains a -280 favourite to win the 2-on-1 handicap match for the Smackdown Women's Championship. Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross are +200.

WWE Championship
Samoa Joe was a +260 underdog for the past few days. He is now down to +220. As a result, Kofi Kingston's price to successfully retain the WWE Championship has moved up from -380 to -300.

Roman Reigns and The Undertaker .vs. Drew McIntyre and Shane McMahon
Roman Reigns and The Undertaker are still -400 favourites to beat McIntyre and McMahon (+280).
