5Dimes Adds 2 New SummerSlam Match Markets And More

The 5Dimes Sportbsook has added two more match markets to its coverage of this Sunday's WWE SummerSlam 2018 PPV.

The new markets are for two of the bouts scheduled to take place on the event's Kick Off.

Rusev and Lana are +135 underdogs for their meeting with Andrade 'Cien' Almas and Zelina Vega. The faves are currently -175.

The B-Team is priced -210 to successfully retain the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship against The Revival (+160).

Along with the new markets are a few adjustments to those that were available before today.

Alexa Bliss' price to successfully retain the WWE Raw Women's Championship against Ronda Rousey has been snipped from +260 into +240. Rousey is now a -320 favourite, which is a slight improvement from this morning's -380.

WWE US Champion, Shinsuke Nakamura, has been cut from -295 into -380 to keep his strap with a decision over Jeff Hardy. A win for the former titleholder will now pay out at +260 - an increase from +215.

Finally, the other market showing different pricing to this morning is the one for the long-awaited Daniel Bryan .vs. The Miz match.

Daniel Bryan has been cut into +115 from +145. The Miz has moved to -155 from -185.

It's worth noting that Bryan announced today on the Sam Roberts Podcast (which was recorded earlier this month) that he still hasn't renewed his contract with WWE, but there is a ninety percent chance of him putting pen to paper on a new deal.

Here are all of the prices for the selections that haven't changed today.

Finn Balor -175
Baron Corbin +135

Carmella +115
Field .vs. Carmella -155
Becky Lynch +185
Charlotte Flair +235

Dolph Ziggler +160
Seth Rollins -210

Braun Strowman -350
Kevin Owens +250

Bludgeon Brothers -140
New Day +100

AJ Styles -195
Samoa Joe +155

Brock Lesnar +200
Roman Reigns -280

Prices correct as of 11PM BST. The latest can be found on THE 5DIMES WEBSITE.

5Dimes' SummerSlam 2018 Betting Odds For Wednesday Night

There have been a number of price changes made to the 5Dimes Sportsbook's WWE SummerSlam 2018 betting markets since I last posted an update about them shortly after 11AM BST today.

In this post, I'll go through each market on the board and note the current prices and - where applicable - point out how they contrast to this morning.

Cedric Alexander .vs. Drew Gulak
When I wrote about this market earlier, I noted that Drew Gulak had dropped from -120 into -140 while the WWE Cruiserweight Champion, Cedric Alexander, had risen to +100 from -120. Since then, Alexander has been backed from the aforementioned +100 into -130. A winning wager on Gulak will now pay out at -110. I think this could be the one that see-saws throughout the rest of the week. You can see in the table below why I have came to this conclusion.

Date/Time
Cedric Alexander
Drew Gulak
5/8 12:45PM
-145
+105
6/8 10:30PM
-130
-110
8/8 10:00PM
+105
-145
11/8 10:30AM
-120
-120
15/8 11:00AM
+100
-140
11:00PM
-130
-110

Daniel Bryan .vs. The Miz
This market is unchanged. The Miz is still a -165 favourite while Daniel Bryan is +125.

Finn Balor .vs. Baron Corbin
Baron Corbin's odds have been snipped from +190 into +170. As a result, Finn Balor has risen to -230 from -270.

Shinsuke Nakamura .vs. Jeff Hardy
The US Champion was -265 earlier on. This is a price he had been since the night of August 8th. He's now down to -295. Jeff Hardy has risen from +185 to +215 following the interest in Nakamura.

WWE Smackdown Women's Championship
No changes have been made in the market for the triple threat match. Carmella is still +115 to retain while a bet on 'The Field .vs. Carmella' is -155. The individual odds for her opponents - Charlotte Flair (+235) and Becky Lynch (+185) - have also stalled.

Dolph Ziggler .vs. Seth Rollins
Dolph Ziggler to retain with a decision over Seth Rollins was lowered from +180 to +160 today. The challenger remains a favourite, but has moved from -260 to a slightly better -210.

Braun Strowman .vs. Kevin Owens
Braun Strowman's role as a favourite has dropped to -350. He was -300 earlier. A win for Kevin Owens - which had been +220 since August 6th - is now up to +250.

Bludgeon Brothers .vs. The New Day
The Bludgeon Brothers remain -140 faves for their defence against The New Day (+100).

AJ Styles .vs. Samoa Joe
Another market still showing the same pricing as previous updates. Samoa Joe is a +155 underdog while the champ is -195.

Alexa Bliss .vs. Ronda Rousey
Bliss is now +260 to successfully retain the WWE Raw Women's Championship against Ronda Rousey. She was out at +400 this morning. Rousey is still a favourite, but has drifted to -380 from -600.

Brock Lesnar .vs. Roman Reigns
Brock Lesnar's price has been snipped from +220 into +200. A win for Roman Reigns will now pay out at -280. This is a slight improvement for those looking to back the challenger as he was -300 earlier.

Prices correct as of 11PM BST. The latest can be found under 'Other Sports' on the 5Dimes Website.

Post-Smackdown SummerSlam 2018 Odds

It has been a little over twelve hours - and an episode of WWE Smackdown - since I last wrote about the WWE SummerSlam 2018 betting markets that are available from the 5Dimes Sportsbook. Since publishing the post, there have been a trio minor changes made to a few of the prices. However - none of the moves occurred for any matches from the Smackdown brand.

205 Live ended with WWE Cruiserweight Champion - Cedric Alexander - beating Jack Gallagher in a non-title match. In the post-match, Alexander's opponent for Sunday - Drew Gulak - put the champ in the Gu-Lock as the show went off the air.

When I last checked the odds last night, both wrestlers were at -120 pick 'em. It appears, by today's prices. that Gulak has been backed.


Date/Time
Cedric Alexander
Drew Gulak
5/8 12:45PM
-145
+105
6/8 10:30PM
-130

-145
11/8 10:30AM

-120
15/8 11:00AM
+100
-140


As you can see, Gulak is now at -140 while Alexander has been pushed up to +100.

In last night's post, I highlighted Dolph Ziggler's odds to successfully retain the Intercontinental Championship had dipped from +205 into +165.

With Ziggler's price moving in, the bookies moved Seth Rollins to -215 from -285. However, since publishing, the punters have landed back on the challenger.


Date/Time
Dolph Ziggler
Seth Rollins
5/8 12:45PM
+160

6/8 10:30PM
+205

+165
-215
15/8 11:00AM
+180
-260


Rollins is now -260 with Ziggler drifting out to +180.

The only other market to show different pricing to last night is the one for the meeting between Finn Balor and Baron Corbin.


Date/Time
Finn Balor
Baron Corbin

Pre-Smackdown SummerSlam 2018 Odds

I've visited the 5Dimes Sportsbook's website to make note of the current WWE SummerSlam 2018 betting odds ahead of tonight's episode of Smackdown. There is only one market showing different prices to when I looked through the website this morning.

The market in question is the one for Seth Rollins' Intercontinental Championship challenge against Dolph Ziggler.


Date/Time
Dolph Ziggler
Seth Rollins
5/8 12:45PM
+160
-210
6/8 10:30PM
+205
-285
14/8 11:00PM
+165
-215


Ziggler had been a +205 underdog for days until finally being lowered to +165 today. Seth Rollins remains a favourite, but he has drifted out from -285 to -215.

The build for this match was given the main event slot of last night's Raw. This is because they reintroduced Dean Ambrose. He'll be in Rollins' corner on Sunday.

The obvious assumption, based on who has been backed today, is that the fans have backed Ziggler to successfully retain the strap following Ambrose turning on his friend. Personally, I believe it's too soon for Ambrose to turn even though I think it's inevitable due to the belief that Ambrose versus Rollins was originally scheduled to take place at WrestleMania 34 before the former was injured.

Here are all the other prices.

Finn Balor -230
Baron Corbin +170

Shinsuke Nakamura -265
Jeff Hardy +185

Cedric Alexander -120
Drew Gulak -120

Carmella Wins Triple Threat +115
Field Wins Triple Threat (.vs. Carmella) -155
Becky Lynch Wins Triple Threat +185
Charlotte Flair Wins Triple Threat +235

Daniel Bryan +125
The Miz -165

Braun Strowman -300
Kevin Owens +220

Bludgeon Bros. -140
New Day +100

AJ Styles -195
Samoa Joe +155

Alexa Bliss +400
Ronda Rousey -600

Brock Lesnar +220
Roman Reigns -300
