Rumble 2017 Odds Notes For December 9th

Here's a short update about some of the WWE Royal Rumble 2017 betting markets that can be found online.

Betfair

I last looked through Betfair's market a fortnight ago. Back then, it was clear that Chris Jericho was seeing action as his price was on the descent. This has continued as his number has now been cut from 8/1 into 5/1.

The rest of the list is as it was on November 25th. It can be viewed under 'Special Bets' on the sportsbook menu over at Betfair.com.

Ladbrokes

The Ladbrokes market is the one that I looked at yesterday. It has changed since then.

Bill Goldberg remains a favourite, but he has continued to drift out. He has moved from 7/4 into 2/1 within a day.

In yesterday's post, one of the selections that I noted was seeing action was 'The Undertaker'. This drop has continued as the odds are now 20/1 from 25/1.


Paddy Power / SportsBet Australia

I last tracked Paddy Power's Rumble odds on November 25th. I notice there has been one selection whose price has dipped and it's the one for a Brock Lesnar victory.

The odds have dropped from 16s into 12/1.

Goldberg's Rumble Odds Drift Out At Ladbrokes And More

Bill Goldberg's odds to win the 2017 WWE Royal Rumble have drifted out at Ladbrokes.com.

Despite still being the bookies' favourite, his price has moved up from 5/4 into 7/4. The move is due to other names on Ladbrokes' Royal Rumble Outrights being backed.

The following changes were made yesterday:

Finn Balor from 4/1 to 7/2

All of these price moves came ahead of Balor's appearance at the live Gorilla Position Podcast event held in London yesterday evening. Balor stated - during the show - that WrestleMania is his personal target to return from injury. What else could he have said?

John Cena from 6/1 to 5/1

Not surprising considering Cena's chase for a sixteenth world title could be his WrestleMania storyline. More on this later.

AJ Styles from 12/1 to 9/1

The only reason I could muster as to why it appears the WWE World Champion has been backed is due to people placing speculative punts on Styles winning the Rumble due to the news that he suffered an ankle injury at TLC. Even so, it's baffling.

Seth Rollins 14/1 to 10/1

I can understand why Rollins' price has been slashed. On this week's Raw, he mentioned wanting to get to HHH and the only we he could do that is to beat Kevin Owens for the Championship. I expect the punters are banking on the chance of Rollins getting to Owens' Universal Championship by becoming number one contender with a Rumble win. In my opinion, the most likely scenario is Rollins goes through Jericho at Roadblock (as he promised) and then secures himself a title shot against Kevin Owens (if Owens is still the champ post-Roadblock). This nicely sets up the spot where HHH enters the picture to screw Rollins from winning the title and re-igniting their trouble in time for WrestleMania.

The Undertaker 40/1 to 25/1

Another move that makes sense. Sort of. There are rumours that The Undertaker could challenge AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble with many - myself  included- speculating that it'll set up the John Cena versus The Undertaker match that was in the plans for this year's Mania before Cena was injured.
I presume the fans who backed Undertaker to win the Rumble are doing so in case it's AJ Styles versus John Cena in the title match at the Royal Rumble. It's a bit of a backwards way to get to Undertaker versus Cena, but it's somewhat understandable.

Along with Goldberg moving out other selections whose prices have increased in yesterday's changes were:

Roman Reigns now 12/1 from 9/1
Brock Lesnar now 16/1 from 14/1
Bray Wyatt now 33/1 from 20/1
Cesaro now 33/1 from 20/1
Kurt Angle now 66/1 from 25/1

Ladbrokes' WWE odds were first published over the summer. They were taken down for a few months, but were republished this past Sunday.

When available, Ladbrokes' WWE betting odds are found under 'Wrestling' on the sportsbook menu at Ladbrokes.com. This link will take you to the Wrestling betting page.

A Look At Ladbrokes' Rumble '17 Odds (Dec 6th)

As mentioned in one of the posts from Sunday evening, the Ladbrokes Sportsbook has republished its betting markets for the 2017 WWE Royal Rumble.

I was unable to dedicate any time to looking through the markets when they were placed back online, but was able to do so on Monday evening.

The first thing that's obvious is that Bill Goldberg has now been moved to favourite. He's in this spot because all other websites with Royal Rumble betting odds have him at their top of their boards as well.

Ladbrokes has him at 5/4 as of the time of writing. This is a significant difference to three months ago, long before his return and eventual defeat of Brock Lesnar, when he was 80/1.

Chris Jericho is now fourth on the board at 8/1. This is a drop from 50s. As some of you might know, Jericho has been one of the names that I've been following ever since I noticed his price starting to fall a few months ago. Of all the wagers I have placed on next year's Rumble, I would prefer to see Jericho win as I think his storyline with Kevin Owens has been the best thing on Raw each and every week.

Another person on my shortlist, John Cena, is now 6/1. His price was 20/1 when I managed to bet on him in mid-September. It was then cut to 10s three days later. So, Cena now at 6s moves him into third spot on the list.

Finn Balor, who I pointed out as a potential winner before this year's SummerSlam but have gone cold on with the Owens/Jericho storyline picking up steam, is second-favourite. He's 4/1 now, but had been 6/1.

The other price cuts are:

Randy Orton from 20/1 to 10/1
AJ Styles 18/1 to 12/1
Cesaro 33/1 to 20/1
Braun Strowman 40/1 to 33/1

The selections whose prices have drifted out:

Roman Reigns from 4/1 to 9/1
Seth Rollins from 4/1 to 14/1
Kevin Owens from 4/1 to 14/1
Brock Lesnar from 4/1 to 14/1
Bray Wyatt from 14/1 to 20/1
Conor McGregor from 66/1 to 100/1
CM Punk from 66/1 to 200/1

The rest of the board remains stationary. If available, you can view the full list on this page.

WWE TLC 2016 Closing Odds

WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2016 had a full sweep of closing favourites winning their respective bouts last night. Here are the final odds for all of the match markets that were available for last night's event.

Slater and Rhyno .vs. The Wyatt Family

The Wyatts won the WWE Smackdown tag team championship as -2,150 favourites.  The eventual losing titleholders were out at +1,050 when the bell sounded for the match.

Nikki Bella .vs. Carmella

Nikki won the no disqualification match at -1,700. Carmella was out at +800.

The Miz .vs. Dolph Ziggler

The Miz retained the WWE Intercontinental Championship as a -1,875 fave. The challenger was +925 as he entered the ring.

Baron Corbin .vs. Kalisto

Corbin won the chairs match at -4,950. Had Kalisto been victorious, the sportsbook would have had to pay out at odds of +1,650.

Becky Lynch .vs. Alexa Bliss

Alexa came in as a -4,650 favourite. The eventual loser, Becky Lynch, was +1550 before the market was removed.

AJ Styles .vs. Dean Ambrose

AJ Styles retained the WWE World Championship as -11,000 chalk in the main event. Dean Ambrose's number went as high as +3,000.

Now that we can look back and know for certain - it's absolutely safe to pinpoint the moves that were made between 8am and 8:30am GMT on Saturday morning as an indicator for when smart money landed on these bouts. The moves were written about in this post nine minutes after I noticed the changes.

TLC 2016 Main Event Match Duration Odds Flip

The odds for tonight's main event going over 24 minutes in length have flipped in a special prop market that was published yesterday.

When the market was first installed, the Kambi oddsmakers had set '24 minutes or over' as the outsider with a price of EVENS to '23:59 minutes or less' 18/25.

There has been a complete flip. The market is now showing:

Click on image to expand

In a post published yesterday, I made a case for the over. One of the main reasons I gave was that last month's main event lasted less than ninety seconds, so I have a feeling the company will go out of its way to ensure AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose have enough time to deliver.

With that said, previous TLC matches have tended to go under twenty-four minutes. 

I ended yesterday's post mentioning that I was going to place a bet on the over as soon as I was finished. The bet has been placed, so I'm on the over.

The market can be found alongside the AJ Styles versus Dean Ambrose match market on LeoVegas' WWE Betting Page.

Originally published on November 28th

Just like with previous WWE pay-per-view events, the oddsmakers at WilliamHill.com are looking for any in-play specials ideas that you might have for the show.

As per usual, the trader in charge of these markets will browse through this post at regular intervals to see the ideas that have been left in the comment section below. If he is able to, he'll add your suggestion to the board when the markets are opened a couple of hours before Tables, Ladders and Chairs on Sunday night.

To save your time, there are some things that cannot be considered. Here are a few examples:

- Asking for male-on-women violence
- Wrestlers bleeding or real injuries occurring during the event
- The placement of matches on the card (ie asking for certain matches to be the main event etc)
- Things that are said by audience members/wrestlers/commentators
- Pyrotechnic or other production malfunctions

The specials are focused on the main card, so please bear this in mind if you're thinking of an in-play that might take place on the Kick Off.

LeoVegas' TLC 2016 Odds As Of Sunday Evening

It has been more than a day since I went over the WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2016 betting odds that have been published by the oddsmakers from Kambi.

In the post, I spotlighted the odds from 32Red as I am trying to share the coverage between all the firms that use Kambi. For today, I'll recommend the LeoVegas lines.

You can view LeoVegas' live WWE Odds through this link

AJ Styles .vs. Dean Ambrose

The market is still showing the same prices as it did when it was originally published. The current WWE World Champion is an extremely short 1/25 to retain with a win over Dean Ambrose. A successful punt on the challenger would pay out at 15/2.

The Miz .vs. Dolph Ziggler

The Miz was originally 1/10, but this price has now shortened to 1/15. As a result, Dolph Ziggler is now 11/2, but had been 19/4.

Nikki Bella .vs. Carmella

Nikki Bella's number is now 1/15. This is a change from the 1/9 was when the market was first chalked up. This obviously means that Carmella has drifted out. She has moved from 17/4 to 6/1.

Kalisto .vs. Baron Corbin

There's no difference here. Kalisto is still a 7/1 underdog to Corbin's 1/20.

Slater and Rhyno .vs. Orton and Wyatt

No change here as well. The current titleholders are 7/1 while Orton and Wyatt are 1/20.

Becky Lynch .vs. Alexa Bliss

Alexa opened as a 1/10 favourite. Her price is now an even more shorter 1/20. As a result of this favouring of Alexa, Becky Lynch is now out to 6/1 from 19/4.

The 6/1 for Lynch is right in line with most of the other sportsbooks offering betting for this match.

As noted earlier, today's spotlight is on the LeoVegas Casino and Sportsbook. You can view its WWE betting page through this link. 

Ladbrokes' TLC Odds Down, Rumble Odds Back Up

As expected, the Ladbrokes Sportsbook has closed betting for this weekend's WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs at its cut-off point of 6pm.

That's the bad news for those of you who may have missed the 'Last Call' alert I published earlier.

The good news is that the company has republished its 2017 WWE Royal Rumble markets.

I won't be able to go through all the changes right now because I am watching the TLC odds. However, there are some nice prices available.

Finn Balor is 4/1, John Cena is 6/1 and Chris Jericho is 8/1.

Bill Goldberg tops the list as a 5/4 favourite.

You can view the odds by following this link to Ladbrokes' WWE Betting Page.

Last Call : Ladbrokes' WWE TLC '16 Markets Due To Close

The Ladbrokes Sportsbook's WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2016 betting markets are scheduled to close in the next hour.

I published a post this morning noting that the firm had priced up odds for the six matches that are scheduled for tonight's event and mentioned that the company will call time on betting at 6pm GMT.

The firm has closed early for previous PPVs, so - if you are a Laddies customer - and want to have a bet, I'd recommend heading over to Ladbrokes' WWE Betting Page as soon as you can.

5Dimes' WWE TLC 2016 Odds As Of 3:45pm GMT

It has been a few hours since I last posted an update where I went over the 5Dimes Sportsbook's WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2016 betting markets, so here's the latest:

Click on image to expand

Two markets have changed since this morning's update. They are both female matches.

Carmella's odds have dipped from +700 to +650 in the no disqualification bout on the card. This has resulted in Nikki Bella's number improving from -1500 to -1350.

The sort of see-saw that has been going between Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss punters has continued throughout the day. This time, it's Alexa Bliss who once again has the edge as her price has tumbled from -215 to -1245. This has forced the traders to move Becky up from +165 into +615.


Click image to expand



Even though Alexa was established as a favourite alongside all other faves yesterday morning, it hasn't stopped Becky from being backed. I'm interested to see what the result is more than I am for any other match on the card.

5Dimes' WWE TLC 2016 odds can be found under 'Other Sports' on the betting board over at 5Dimes.com.

Betfair With TLC 2016 Odds

I've just noticed that Betfair.com is taking bets on WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs.

William Hill's WWE TLC 2016 Odds Republished

The traders at William Hill have republished their betting odds for tonight's WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs.

Here are the odds as of 8:35am GMT today.


The markets were first published yesterday morning, but were taken down overnight. 

There have been changes made across the board. 

The Wyatt Family opened as 1/12 favourites, so they're shorter now at 1/25. This obviously means that Heath Slater and Rhyno's price has improved. They've gone out from 6s into 9/1.

Baron Corbin has shortened from 1/16 into 1/25 while Kalisto has jumped out to 9/1 from 7/1.

Nikki Bella has been backed from 4/11 into 1/12. As a result, Carmella has drifted out from 2/1 into 6/1.

The Miz was originally 1/8 to retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship in the ladder match against Dolph Ziggler. He is now 1/12. The challenger is now 6/1, but had been a lower 9/2.

Becky Lynch opened as a 6/1 outsider against Alexa Bliss. She is now down to 13/8 with Bliss going from a 1/12 into a 4/9 favourite.

Dean Ambrose's odds to win the TLC match have been cut. When I checked in yesterday, he was out at 10/1. This price has now dropped to 9/1. The current WWE World Champion - AJ Styles - remains a heavy fave, but his number is now mildly better than the 1/33 he was yesterday. You can now find him at 1/25.

The company will publish in-play specials a couple of hours ahead of the PPV. If you'd like to suggest a prop that you'd like to see on the board, you can leave an idea in the comment section OF THIS POST.

Prices correct as of 8:35am GMT. William Hill's WWE TLC 2016 markets can be viewed ON THIS PAGE.

Ladbrokes' WWE TLC 2016 Odds

Ladbrokes.com is another firm with odds available for tonight's WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view.

There are six match markets available. The odds are as follows.

The Miz is a 1/9 favourite to retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship in the ladder match against Dolph Ziggler. A win for the challenger will pay out at odds of 9/2.

Carmella is a 5/1 outsider in her no disqualification battle against Nikki Bella (1/10).

Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton are 1/25 to get a decision over the current WWE Smackdown Tag Tea Champions - Heath Slater and Rhyno. The champs are 8/1.

Baron Corbin is 1/25 to win the chairs match against Kalisto (8/1),

WWE Smackdown Women's Champion, Becky Lynch, is a 4/1 outsider for her match against Alexa Bliss (1/8).

AJ Styles is a heavy 1/50 retain the WWE World Championship over Dean Ambrose in the main event. If you believe Ambrose will get the decision in the TLC match, then you can pick him at 10/1.

The markets will close at 6pm GMT.

These odds were correct as of 8:20am GMT today. You can view the latest through this link.

5Dimes' WWE TLC 2016 Odds For Sunday Morning

Here are the 5Dimes Sportsbook's odds for tonight's PPV as of 7:45am GMT today:


Comparing these numbers to last night, it's clear to see that the Saturday night punters have bet every outsider on the board apart from the team of Heath Slater and Rhyno as the Tag Team Match odds remain unchanged.

The biggest mover has come in on Becky Lynch. Her price was +600. This is not that much of a surprise considering there was a time yesterday, after the big line moves came in, where the customers moved in on this selection. Back then, the number fell from +580 to around +180 before drifting back out to the aforementioned +600.

The other outsiders' moves were:

Dean Ambrose from +1250 to +1115
Dolph Ziggler from +775 to +630
Carmella from +900 to +700
Kalisto from +1150 to +1100
