Roman Reigns Now A Favourite In Bwin's MITB Betting Market

The bwin Sportsbook has been offering outright odds for the 2015 Money in the Bank winner since April. This market tends to be taken down for re-adjustment at times, but is still available as of the time of posting.

In this post, I'm going to look at the current odds and note whose odds have changed since I last looked on Thursday.


The most glaring change is the price for Roman Reigns to win the briefcase. He is now an 11/10 favourite. This past Thursday, the Royal Rumble winner and WrestleMania main eventer was available at 8/1.

It wasn't just Reigns' price that dropped. It appears Kane and Big Show have also been singled out as possible winners by fans.

Kane is now at 7s. He had been 25/1.

The Big Show has also moved from 25/1. However, his drop wasn't as steep as it only went to 14/1. I surmise this movement is down to the fact that he is about to return to TV imminently. Fans clued in on this fact must have made a few speculative punts on Show at those odds.

As a result of these changes, the rest of the board has been re-adjusted in all cases apart for two. Bray Wyatt (9/1) and Cesaro (25/1) remain the same as they were on Thursday. 

Here's how the remaining selections have changed:

Bo Dallas 20/1 to 40/1
Luke Harper 33/1 to 50/1
Curtis Axel 50/1 to 66/1
Neville 14/1 to 25/1
Daniel Bryan 5/1 to 16/1
Fandango 40/1 to 50/1
The Miz 40/1 to 50/1
Sheamus 4/1 to 10/1
Ryback 4/1 to 9/1
Dolph Ziggler 14/1 to 16/1
Randy Orton 8/1 to 10/1
Damien Sandow 9/1 to 10/1
Brock Lesnar 5/1 to 6/1
Dean Ambrose 2/1 to 3/1

The newest addition to the board is Rusev at 9/1.

When available, bwin's WWE odds can be found under 'Entertainment' on the A-Z sportsbook menu at bwin.com

Sportsbet Australia's Elimination Chamber Odds

In a post published yesterday, I noted that the Paddy Power Sportsbook had published odds for Elimination Chamber 2015. What I should have also pointed out is that its Australian arm, Sportsbet Australia, has also put out lines.

As with Paddy Power, Sportsbet is currently only accepting wagers on three of the matches scheduled to take place this coming Sunday.

The odds are:

Seth Rollins 1.14
Dean Ambrose 4.33

Paige 3.60
Naomi 1.83
Nikki Bella 3.10

John Cena 1.50
Kevin Owens 2.50

As noted, I expect the rest of the matches to be added as the week progresses.

These markets can be viewed on Sportsbet Australia's WWE Betting Page.

Paddy Power Publishes WWE Elimination Chamber 2015 Odds

PaddyPower.com has published betting odds for the WWE Elimination Chamber 2015 special event which takes place a week from tonight.

As of the time of posting, there are three matches available for customers to bet on. These are: the 3-Way for the WWE Divas Championship, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match and the meeting between NXT Champion, Kevin Owens, and US Champ - John Cena.

Naomi has been priced up as a 5/6 favourite to leave the event as new Divas Champion. Current titleholder - Nikki Bella - is out at 21/10 while the returning Paige is 13/5.

WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins, is a short 1/6 to defeat the challenge from Dean Ambrose (7/2).

John Cena is favoured with a price of 1/2 against Kevin Owens. As this is a non-title match, I think the 6/4 for Owens might appeal to some.

I surmise the company will produce odds for the other matches scheduled for the event as we head into next week.

Paddy Power is now the second firm to have odds out for Elimination Chamber.

The WWE markets can be found under 'Sports Novelties'. For ease, you can follow this link to Paddy Power's WWE Betting Page.

Royal Rumble 2016 Betting Odds Available From Bwin

The bwin Sportsbook has released odds for next year's WWE Royal Rumble.

Yes, you read that right.

The present WWE World Heavyweight Champion - Seth Rollins - is a 2/1 favourite as of today. This isn't too bad a choice considering the possibility that he will not be holding the belt come January 31st.

Brock Lesnar is second in the betting with a price of 4/1 while this year's winner, Roman Reigns, is 5/1.

Here's the list as of Sunday 24th May 2015:


I suppose more names will be added over time either when the traders think of them or - and as stated on the company's website - a customer requests an inclusion.

William Hill once opened a 2002 Royal Rumble market in the late summer of 2001. Today's publication beats that by months.

The firm was also the first to put up future odds on this year's Money in the Bank winner and - as of this afternoon - is the only bookie with betting odds for most of next weekend's WWE Elimination Chamber 2015 card.

It's worth noting that bwin does tend to remove and republish these markets on a frequent basis. However, when they're available, you'll be able to view them under 'Entertainment' on the sportsbook's A-Z menu at bwin.com.

Elimination Chamber 2015 Odds : 24 Hrs Later

It has been over twenty-four hours since the bwin Sportsbook opened its betting on the Elimination Chamber special. I have returned to the sportsbook's website to see where the early bettors have been putting their money.



Seth Rollins .vs. Dean Ambrose

There has been no change with this market. Rollins remains priced at 1/5 and Ambrose is 3/1.

WWE Tag Team Championship Elimination Chamber

Tyson Kidd & Cesaro and The Prime Time Players have been the teams the fans have been punting on.

Kidd & Cesaro's odds have dipped slightly moving from 7/2 to 3/1.  Titus O'Neil and Darren Young backers have moved them from 12/1 outside shots to fourth at 9/1.

The Ascension and The Lucha Dragons remain how they opened: 5/1 and 10/1 respectively.

Even though they're still favourites, The New Day's price has improved from 8/15 to 4/6.

WWE Intercontinental Championship Elimination Chamber

Sheamus opened as favourite and the money appears to be landing on this selection. His odds have dropped from 8/11 to 4/9.  However, he isn't the only wrestler the fans have wagered on.

Rusev has been backed from 11/1 to 9/1.

The drifters have been Ryback (5/2 to 9/2), Dolph Ziggler (9/2 to 6/1) and R-Truth (33/1 to 40/1)

No change has occurred with the price for King Barrett (20/1) to win the strap he lost at WrestleMania 31.

John Cena .vs. Kevin Owens

John Cena's price has shortened in this early period. It opened at 1/2, but is now 2/5. As a reult - Kevin Owens' number has gone out from 6/4 to 7/4.

These odds were correct as of 9pm BST this evening. Latest prices can be found under 'Entertainment' on the sportsbook menu at bwin.com

UFC 187 : Where The Best Odds Are

UFC 187 takes place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas tomorrow night. The main card is jam packed and will feature two title bouts. One will see Chris Weidman defend the Middleweight Championship while the other is a Light Heavyweight Championship decider.

I have gone through the list of fights and noted where the best odds can be found for each fighter. I also made one pick for the night.

As per uusal, I'll note the odds available for visitors based in the US/Canada as well as for those in the UK and other parts of Europe.

Joseph Benavidez .vs. John Moraga

This one is in the Flyweight division. 

Both fighters are on two-win streaks. However, Benavidez is the more experienced with a 21-4 record to Moraga's 16-3. 

Benavidez's best odds:
1/5 Boylesports
-600 Bovada/Bodog

Moraga's odds:
9/2 Sky Bet, Coral, Betfred, Ladbrokes, Bet365
+470 5Dimes

Travis Browne .vs. Andrei Arlovski

Similar to above, both fighters are evenly matched in their current streaks. Both are going into the octagon with 4-1 in their last five fights respectively.

Browne's best prices:
4/15 Boylesports
-450 with both Bovada or 5Dimes

Arlovski's better numbers:
7/2 Bet365 or Ladbrokes
+360 5Dimes

Donald Cerrone .vs. John Makdessi

Cerrone is 27-6 and in the midst of a seven-fight win streak. Makdessi is coming off an April win against Shane Campbell at UFC 186.

Donald Cerrone is a short-priced favourite everywhere. I don't disagree. 

The best Cerrone odds:
2/9 Betfair
-570 5Dimes

Makdessi's best price:
9/2 Bet365
+435 5Dimes

Chris Weidman .vs. Vitor Belfort

UFC Middleweight Champion, Weidman, is 12-0 for his career. Belfort is 24-10, but has been good for the past few fights winning the last three either by TKO or KO. 

Weidman's best odds:
1/4 Sportingbet
-500 Bovada/Bodog

Belfort's better prices:
4/1 Ladbrokes or Bet365
+415 5Dimes

Anthony Johnson .vs. Daniel Cormier

This is for the vacant Light Heavyweight Championship that was stripped from Jon Jones following his latest troubles.

Johnson is 19-4, but on a nine-win streak. His rival is 15-1 and is coming off a judge's loss to the aforementioned Jones.

Johnson's best price:
11/10 Boylesports
-105 5Dimes

Cormier's best odds:
10/11 Bet365
-110 Bovada/Bodog

The companies listed either offer WWE betting lines every month or have done so in the past. The only exception is Bet365.

Bwin Publishes WWE Elimination Chamber 2015 Betting Odds

The bwin Sportsbook has published betting odds for next Sunday's WWE Elimination Chamber special event.

As of this afternoon, customers can wager on the four matches that have officially been announced on WWE television. They are the two Elimination Chamber bouts and the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and US Championship title matches.

The New Day have opened 8/15 to retain their WWE Tag Team Championship in the first ever tag team Elimination Chamber match.

The trio's current rivals - Tyson Kidd & Cesaro - are second favourites with a price of 7/2. The Ascension (5/1), The Lucha Dragons (10/1) and The Prime Time Players (12/1) complete the line-up.

Sheamus will lift the vacant WWE Intercontinental Championship on this show, if the oddsmakers are correct. They have the Irishman priced as an 8/11 favourite to win the strap in the second Elimination Chamber match on the card.

Ryback is next in the betting with a price of 5/2. He's followed by Dolph Ziggler (9/2), Rusev (11/1), King Barrett (20/1) and R-Truth (33/1).

The WWE World Heavyweight Championship market has Seth Rollins a short 1/5 to defeat challenger, Dean Ambrose. A punt on Ambrose will pay out at odds of 3/1.

The US Champion, John Cena, is set to face-off against NXT Champion - Kevin Owens. Cena has been chalked up as a 1/2 favourite while the WWE main roster newcomer is 6/4.

The Elimination Chamber will be aired exclusively on the WWE Network. I was unsure how many betting companies would have prices up for the event, so am glad at least one firm has published odds for the May 31st event.

The bwin WWE odds can be found under 'Entertainment' on the sportsbook menu at bwin.com.

Bwin's MITB Market Back Up For Now

The Bwin Sportsbook's WWE Money in the Bank 2015 future odds have been republished at bwin.com.


There are only two price changes since I last wrote about the market earlier this month.

Randy Orton's price has drifted out from 7/1 in to 8/1 and Daniel Bryan's odds have halved from 10/1 to 5/1.

Bryan's price change may have been the result of the wrestler having to vacate the WWE Intercontinental Championship following injury. Customers, or even the sportsbook itself, have shortened the number anticipating that Bryan will return from his current setback and end up winning the briefcase.

With it still being unclear when Bryan will be back, this is quite a risky bet considering the 'all in run or not' rule that is in play when sportsbooks put up these numbers. 

These odds can be found under 'Entertainment' on the sportsbook menu. Please note, bwin's WWE betting markets tend to be taken down and republished frequently.

Where To Bet On WWE Money In The Bank 2015

With betting for WWE Payback 2015 now closed, it's time to look ahead towards the next regular pay-per-view on the company's calendar - Money in the Bank 2015.

Money in the Bank will take place on June 14th. In this post, I will share with you the online bookmakers where you'll likely find betting odds for the PPV.

I have compiled the list below noting the bookies that offered markets for Payback. Other bookmakers that have published betting lines for WWE supercards can be found on BetOnWrestling.co.uk's WWE Bookmaker Review Page.

Before I begin, it's worth noting that there is a special WWE Network exclusive Elimination Chamber event sandwiched in between Payback and Money in the Bank. Here is a post where I predict the sportsbooks that will offer Elimination Chamber betting opportunities.

Back to MITB betting..

The bwin Sportsbook

This is not a guess. The Bwin Sportsbook WILL have Money in the Bank 2015 betting odds because the company already has published betting lines where customers can wager on the wrestler who wins the ladder match for the Money in the Bank briefcase.

The bwin Money in the Bank odds have been available on-and-off since late April.

The firm has been publishing odds for most of the recent PPVs. It was the first company to publish odds for WWE Payback as the prices went up not long after the episode of WWE Raw that aired the night after Extreme Rules. If the traders work to a similar schedule, prices for some of the undercard matches on the card might be up as early as Tuesday June 2nd .

It's worth noting that the company's Payback odds were unavailable throughout the weekend of the PPV. So, if the markets are open and you really want to use bwin for your wager, I'd recommend making the bet as soon as you see them.

When published, bwin's WWE odds are found under 'Entertainment' on the sportsbook menu at bwin.com.

5Dimes Sportsbook & Casino

The 5Dimes Sportsbook & Casino has been offering its customers WWE betting for years and was the second firm to publish prices for Payback.

Odds for the PPV were first installed on the Wednesday / early Thursday before the event. If the company runs to a similar schedule, Money in the Bank prices should be up no later than June 11th.

When available, you'll find 5Dimes' 'Pro Wrestling' markets under 'Other Sports' on the betting board at 5Dimes.com.

Paddy Power

Paddy Power Sportsbook customers have been able to bet on WWE events for years.

The company's WWE Payback betting markets went live early on the Thursday morning before the show.

If Money in the Bank betting markets are opened, you'll be able to view them on Paddy Power's WWE Betting Page.

Sportsbet Australia

Sportsbet Australia is a bookmaking firm owned by the Paddy Power group. The sportsbook runs similar markets to its Irish owner's regular website.

Payback odds were first published around the same time they went live on the Paddy Power site (Thursday morning in the UK).

If available, MITB betting odds can be found on Sportsbet's WWE Page.

Sky Bet

Sky Bet is another company that has been producing WWE betting markets on a consistent basis.

The company's Payback markets first went live on the Thursday afternoon before the event. These markets remained open throughout the PPV with individual match betting closing right before the bell for each contest.

If Sky Bet's traders publish lines for Money in the Bank, you'll be able to view them on Sky Bet's Wrestling Page.

Betfair Sportsbook

The Betfair Sportsbook has been publishing WWE odds for quite a number of PPVs over the past year. The company did have odds up for Payback, so it's possible that the traders will have some markets available in time for Money in the Bank.

Betfair's WWE Payback markets were initially published either late on the Friday evening or early on Saturday morning before the PPV (I noticed them at around 8am BST on Saturday). Just like with 5Dimes and Sky Bet, the Betfair markets remained open all the way through to the start of each match.

If available, they'll be found under 'Special Bets' on the Betfair website (You might need to click on 'General' or 'USA' to bring the markets up).

William Hill

William Hill has been publishing WWE betting odds for years and should have something up for Money in the Bank.

The company did put out betting markets for WWE Payback. However, these went up on the day of the show.

If MITB markets are released, you'll be able to find them in the 'TV/Specials' menu at WilliamHill.com.

Ladbrokes

Ladbrokes is another huge European name in sports betting with shops dotted all over the UK.

The company's WWE Payback odds were the latest to be published. These markets went up on Sunday morning. This meant the traders were able to pencil in lines for the entire card.

If Ladbrokes publishes anything for MITB, you'll find them under 'Wrestling' on the A-Z sportsbook menu at Ladbrokes.com.

* * *

I hope the above list is helpful in some way. Don't forget, there is a list of other sportsbooks that have published World Wrestling Entertainment betting lines on BetOnWrestling.co.uk's Menu of WWE Bookmakers.

You can also view Live WWE Odds at BetOnWrestling.co.uk when the lines are released.

Good Luck!
