Betfair's Battleground 2015 Odds For July 4th

It has been five days since I last checked in with the WWE Battleground 2015 betting markets up at Betfair.com, so - in this post - I'm going to note any of the price changes that have been made in that time.

Of the four matches available to bet on, two are slightly different to as they were on Monday morning.

The Prime Time Players' number has moved from 3/5 to 4/7 indicating the fans/bettors are wagering on the current WWE Tag Team Champions to retain their straps with a win. The New Day are now 13/10, an improvement from 5/4.

John Cena is now 4/6 to win against Kevin Owens. He had been priced 7/10, so the money has trickled in on the US Champ. His rival is now a tad better than the Evens he was earlier this week. He's now 11/10.

And then there's the markets that haven't changed.

The WWE World Heavyweight Championship market still has Brock Lesnar as a 8/15 favourite to defeat Seth Rollins (7/5).

Roman Reigns remains a 4/6 shot to be victorious against his nemesis, Bray Wyatt (21/20).

5Dimes' WWE Battleground 2015 Odds For July 2nd

It has been two days since I last checked in with the WWE Battleground 2015 betting odds available at 5Dimes.com. Here are the current prices along with some notes on the changes that have evidently taken place since Tuesday morning.


There has been no change in the battle for the WWE World Tag Team Championship. Titleholders - The Prime Time Players - are still favourites to pick up the win.

Kevin Owens has been backed down from +160 for the US Championship match against John Cena. The slight drop now brings the odds back to the level they were in the hours before the most recent episode of WWE Raw.

Seth Rollins is the second outsider to see action since Tuesday. He has dropped from +170.

Finally, the Roman Reigns versus Bray Wyatt bout has has finally seen some movement after being stuck on Reigns -150 and Wyatt +110 since the morning of the 25th June.

The interesting thing here is Wyatt - another outsider - has been bet on. The wagers were enough to send the match into a near pick 'em.

As I have noted in previous posts - at this point, these changes have nothing to do with inside knowledge of the finishes. It appears to be fans/bettors backing the outsiders on the chance that one or more are winning picks on the night.

WWE Battleground 2015 Odds For Tuesday 30th June

With WWE Raw taking place last night, I made sure to record the WWE Battleground 2015 betting odds at both Betfair.com and 5Dimes.com to see whether anything on the show resulted in fans wagering on any of the selections for the July 19th pay-per-view.

There were no price changes in the markets available on the Betfair Sportsbook's website. They remain as they were yesterday.

The 5Dimes Sportsbook did see change in two of the match markets.

With Seth Rollins being all over the show bragging about what he and his cronies did to Brock Lesnar last Monday, the odds on Brock Lesnar shortened moving from -190 to -230.

Rollins is now +170 - a move from +150.

Kevin Owens backing out of another match with US Champion, John Cena, led to the latter being backed from -170 to -210.

Owens has drifted out to +160 from +130.

Instead of facing Owens on Raw, Cena put the title on the line against Cesaro. The match ended with Kevin Owens interfering to cost Cesaro the win. I suspect this was a set up for Saturday. Cesaro interfering in Owens' NXT Title defence against Finn Balor will give Owens an out when he drops the strap to Balor.

It could also set up an Owens .vs. Cesaro feud once he moves on from John Cena. Whether this rivalry will be over the US Championship is another thing.

5Dimes' WWE Battleground 2015 For Monday June 29

Here are the 5Dimes Sportsbook's WWE Battleground 2015 betting odds as they were at 10pm BST this evening. Below them are notes for each market indicating where the fans have been betting.


The Roman Reigns versus Bray Wyatt fixture hasn't moved since Thursday morning. It had opened with Reigns a -140 favourite. Wyatt was +100.

Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins' prices have been fluctuating since the market opened. He was originally cast as an underdog but ended up -260 when I recorded the odds on Friday evening. At that point, Seth Rollins was available at +180.

The Prime Time Players' odds have shortened since their price was installed on the 27th. They had been priced -165 with their opponents, The New Day, +125.

And finally, Kevin Owens' odds have shortened in the fourth match on the board. 

He had been up at +150 for a good part of the weekend and has evidently been backed some time today. US Champion, John Cena, was -190 at that point.

I will return tomorrow daytime to see if anything that occurs on Raw leads to any changes to these prices.

5Dimes' WWE Battleground 2015 betting odds can be found under 'Other Sports' on the betting board at 5Dimes.com.

Betfair's WWE Battleground 2015 For Monday 29th June

It has been four days since the Betfair Sportsbook opened its book on WWE Battleground 2015. In this post, I'm going to look through the current odds to see where the early bettors have been placing their stakes.

The company has priced up markets for four of the matches scheduled to take place on July 19th. Of the four, the Roman Reigns versus Bray Wyatt odds remain as they were during the latter part of last week.

Reigns is 4/6 while his opponent is 21/20.

The New Day have been backed to regain the WWE World Tag Team Championship from the Prime Time Players.

The challengers were originally 7/4, but are now down to 5/4. Even though they're still favourites to win, the current champions are 3/5 - an improvement from 2/5.

John Cena will retain the WWE US Championship with a win if the early bettors are spot on.

They have moved Cena's odds from 3/4 to 7/10. A bet on Kevin Owens picking up the W will now double your money should be he successful in three weeks. His price had been 20/21.

In main event betting, Brock Lesnar has gone from 10/17 to 8/15. The WWE World Heavyweight Champion - Seth Rollins - has drifted from 6/5 to 7/5. This evidently points to the fans betting on a Lesnar win.

Now that I have recorded these prices, I'll return in a day or so to see if anything that happens on tonight's Raw prompts any changes/
