COMPARING PADDY POWER & SKY BET'S WWE HELL IN A CELL 2014 BETTING ODDS

In this post, I'll take a look at the WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 betting odds currently available at both PaddyPower.com and SkyBet.com and point you to where the value is should you be planning on wagering on any of the selections.

Please note: these prices are correct as of 11am BST today.

Gold & Stardust vs The Usos

The best price you will find for Gold & Stardust is the 1/3 with Paddy Power. The duo are 2/7 with Sky Bet.
If you would like to take a punt on The Usos regaining the WWE World Heavyweight Championships, your best bet would be to go with Sky Bet. The company lists them at 5/2. Paddy Power, on the other hand, have them priced 2/1.

AJ Lee vs Paige

Looking for the Divas Champ to retain? The best price is the 4/7 on offer with Paddy Power. 
On the other side of the coin, a Paige wager would return more if you take the 5/2 with Sky Bet.

Sheamus vs The Miz

Sheamus is 1/6 with Paddy Power to win the US Championship bout against The Miz. This isn't the best price, though. Sky Bet has marked him up at 1/3.
Paddy Power is offering the better value on The Miz. He's 16/5 with them.

Brie Bella vs Nikki Bella

Paddy Power gets the nod over Sky Bet in regards to the Brie Bella pricing. She is 7/4 with Sky, but 15/8 with Paddy.
Sky is offering 2/5 on Nikki, though. Slightly better than the 4/11 with Paddy.

The Big Show vs Rusev

Rusev is 2/7 with Sky Bet. This price is better than the 2/9 elsewhere.
Paddy Power offers a better option on Big Show, though. He's 11/4.

John Cena vs Randy Orton

Paddy Power lists Cena at 8/11. That's better than the 4/7 with Sky.
Sky's Randy Orton 5/4 price is slightly better than Paddy's EVENS.

Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins

Dean Ambrose is 3/10 with Paddy Power. However, he is a better 1/3 with Sky Bet.
Paddy Power beat's Sky Bet's 9/4 on Seth Rollins with a nice 11/5.

A FRIDAY MORNING LOOK AT 5DIMES' WWE HELL IN A CELL 2014 ODDS

Randy Orton's odds on winning his Hell in a Cell match have continued to drift since I last checked in with the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view match markets at 5Dimes.eu.

Orton, who had been an underdog to win from the moment the markets opened found himself and his opponent priced at -120 for most of yesterday. By evening, The Viper's price had started to escalate back to being an outsider.

His current price of +190 (2.90 EU, 19/10 UK) is the highest I have been able to track since betting opened earlier this week.

John Cena's role as a favourite has moved from -190 to -270 (1.37 EU, 10/27 UK) since 7:30pm BST yesterday.

The Thursday evening bettors have also backed the babyface in the other Hell in a Cell match on Sunday's card.

Dean Ambrose, who was -380 when I last looked, is now -400 (1.25 EU, 1/4 UK). In the same time, Seth Rollins has moved out further going from +260 to +280 (3.80 EU, 14/5 UK).

Rusev has been strongly backed since last night. His price is now -510 (1.20 EU, 10/51 UK). He had been -380 on Thursday. 

As you would expect, the Bulgarian Brute's rival - The Big Show - has jumped from +260 to +340 (4.40 EU, 17/5 UK).

Thursday night wagers appear to have gone in favour of the title challengers on Sunday's show. 

Paige's price has made a short drop from +325 to +320 (4.20 EU, 16/5 UK). Current Divas Champion, AJ Lee, is -460 (1.22 EU, 5/23 UK).

Another title challenger - The Miz - has also seen Thursday action. He has dropped from +280 to +180 (2.80 EU, 9/5 UK) with US Champ, Sheamus, going from -400 to -260 (1.38 EU, 5/13 UK).

The Usos - who will challenge Gold & Stardust for the WWE Tag Team Championships - have descended from +400 to +280 (3.80 EU, 14/5 UK) with the Rhodes Brothers moving to a favourable looking -400 (1.25 EU, 1/4 UK). They had been -600.

There has been no change in the WWE Intercontinental Championship market. Dolph Ziggler remains a -160 (1.63 EU, 5/8 UK) fave while Cesaro is +120 (2.20 EU, 6/5 UK). 

However, there has been a change in favour of Cesaro in a prop bet that was published yesterday.

5Dimes is accepting wagers on the wrestler to score the first fall in the best of three falls match between Ziggler and Cesaro. When the market opened, both participants were listed at odds of -120. The customers have wagered in favour of the King of Swing  He is now -180 (1.56 EU, 5/9 UK) with Ziggler +140 (2.40 EU, 7/5 UK).

In my opinion, the bettors that backed Cesaro to score the initial pin made an astute bet. The psychology of the match calls for the heel to score the initial pin whether he ends up winning the match or not.

I will be back shortly with an observation of the Hell in a Cell betting markets at other bookmaking websites.

Odds correct as of 9:30am BST. For the latest, check the betting board at 5Dimes.com

JOHN CENA VS RANDY ORTON ADDED TO SKY BET'S WWE HELL IN A CELL 2014 COVERAGE

This Sunday's Hell in a Cell match between John Cena and Randy Orton has now been added to the WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 betting markets at SkyBet.com.

Cena is listed as a 4/7 favourite with his opponent marked up at 5/4.

Odds for the rest of Sunday's card were published earlier today.

Sky Bet's  Hell in a Cell markets can be found under 'Wrestling' on the sports betting menu at SkyBet.com. Alternatively, you can follow this direct link to Sky Bet's WWE Betting Page.

PADDY POWER'S CENA VS ORTON ODDS

John Cena is still a slight favourite over Randy Orton in WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 betting on the Paddy Power website.

When the odds opened on Tuesday night, Cena was listed at 8/13 with his rival 6/5.

Their prices have remained stationary all the way to sometime this evening where it appears Orton has been backed.

As of 8pm, you can now get Cena at 8/11 while Orton's price has slightly decreased into EVENS.

I noted a short while ago that Orton had started to drift out in off-shore betting markets. Will a similar thing occur at a domestic bookmaking website?

WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 betting odds can be found under 'Sports Novelties' at PaddyPower.com. Alternatively, you can follow this direct link to Paddy Power's WWE Betting Page.


ORTON DRIFTS BACK OUT IN WWE HELL IN A CELL 2014 BETTING

It's as you were in WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 betting at 5Dimes.com where it comes to John Cena versus Randy Orton.

When the odds were up on Tuesday morning, Cena was a -190 (1.53 EU, 10/19 UK) favourite to win the match and secure a titleshot against Brock Lesnar.

Orton was listed at +150 (2.50 EU, 3/2 UK). However, when I checked the odds earlier today, he had been backed into -120 (1.83 EU, 5/6 UK) along with his opponent.

With both men at -120 throughout the daytime, I was curious to see how they would separate. I was expecting Orton to be backed into favouritism, but that didn't happen.

As of 7:55pm, the odds look like this:

John Cena -190
Randy Orton +150

Exactly as they were on Tuesday.

WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 betting odds can be found under 'Other Sports' on the betting board at 5Dimes.com.


DOLPH ZIGGLER VS CESARO ADDED TO 5DIMES HELL IN A CELL BETTING

The Intercontinental Championship match set to take place at this Sunday's WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 pay-per-view has been added to the betting board at 5Dimes.eu.

The bout - which sees Dolph Ziggler defend the strap against Cesaro under a best of three falls stipulation - was published late as it won't be announced until tomorrow night's edition of Smackdown.

Ziggler has opened up as a -120 (1.63 EU, 5/8 UK) favourite to retain the title. His opponent is out at +120 (2.20 EU, 6/5 UK).

Customers also have the opportunity to place a side bet on this match.

The sportsbook has priced up odds on which wrestler will score the initial pinfall in the match.

Both wrestlers have been marked up at -120 (1.83 EU, 5/6 UK) to win fall one.

Prices are correct as of 7:30pm BST. For the latest, check the betting board at 5Dimes.com.

SKY BET PUBLISHES WWE HELL IN A CELL 2014 BETTING ODDS

WWE fans now have another option when it comes to betting on this Sunday's WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 pay-per-view after Sky Bet opened match markets at SkyBet.com.

The company is currently accepting wagers on six of the matches scheduled for the show.

Gold & Stardust have opened up as 4/11 favourites to win and retain the WWE World Tag Team Championships against The Usos (2/1).

AJ Lee has also been installed as the likely winner of her championship defence against Norwich's Paige. AJ is priced at 2/7 with the challenger given 5/2.

The Miz - who will challenge for the US Championship - has opened as a 9/4 underdog. Current champion, Sheamus, is listed at 1/3.

Nikki Bella is 2/5 to win the match against her sister, Brie (7/4).

Rusev is a short 4/11 favourite in the market for his match against The Big Show. Punters looking for a Show victory can currently back him at 2/1 with Sky.

Dean Ambrose has been given a 1/3 chance of winning the first Hell in a Cell bout. His rival - Seth Rollins - has been marked up at 9/4.

Prices for the Hell in a Cell fixture between John Cena and Randy Orton have yet to be published. Once they are, I'll post an update.

Sky Bet's WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 markets can be found under 'Wrestling' on the sports menu of SkyBet.com

RANDY ORTON & HIS HELL IN A CELL ODDS

Randy Orton has been the Wednesday night bettors' favourite to leave Sunday's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view with a guaranteed WWE title shot against Brock Lesnar.

Orton had been an underdog when the 5Dimes Sportsbook released lines earlier this week. However, he has now been backed into -120 (1.83 EU, 5/6 UK).

His opponent, John Cena, is also priced at -120 with the bookmaker.

I'm not surprised to see the action fall in the way of Orton. 

There have been teases that he'll turn babyface and - as the winner of Sunday's cage match will secure a match against current WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar - an Orton versus Lesnar match at an upcoming PPV would appear like a fresh match-up to wrestling fans.

With there still being over three days before the show, it'll be interesting to see whether the fans will continue backing an Orton victory leading the sportsbook to price up John Cena as underdog.

Odds correct as of 12pm BST. For the latest, check out the betting board at 5Dimes.eu.

5DIMES ADDS TWO MORE MATCHES TO ITS WWE HELL IN A CELL 2014 COVERAGE

The 5Dimes Sportsbook added two more WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 matches to its betting board within past few hours. Customers can now wager on both the Divas and Tag Team Championship bouts.

Current Divas Champion, AJ Lee is currently a -475 (1.21 EU, 4/119 UK) favourite to win and retain against Paige.

Bettors looking for the upset can back Paige at a price of +325 (4.25 EU, 13/4 UK).

The Usos have been cast as outsiders to regain the WWE World Tag Team Championships. They are +420 (5.20 EU, 21/5 UK) with Gold & Stardust favoured by -650 (1.15 EU, 2/13 UK).

Odds correct as of 9am BST. For the latest, check 5Dimes.com.

A WEDNESDAY MORNING LOOK AT 5DIMES' WWE NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS 2014 MARKETS

Here's an update to show how the WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 betting odds are looking since I last checked in with the 5Dimes Sportsbook last night.

There has been no change in the Hell in a Cell contest between Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.

Ambrose remains -320 (1.31 EU, 5/16 UK) and Rollins is +240 (3.40 EU, 12/5 UK).

The Miz has been backed in the US Championship market.

His odds went from the +350 they remained throughout yesterday to +220 (3.20 EU, 11/5 UK) with Sheamus' price moving from -530 to -300 (1.33 EU, 1/3 UK).

Brie Bella has also descended. Her price is now +170 (2.70 EU, 17/10 UK) - a drop from +200. On the other side of the market, Nikki has moved from -280 to -230 (1.43 EU, 10/23 UK).

The Big Show's price continues to shorten in the early stages. He has gone from +350 to +180 (2.80 EU, 9/5 UK) in the past twenty-four hours. In the same time, Rusev has moved from -530 to -260 (1.38 EU, 5/13 UK).

When I last checked in with the Sportsbook, Randy Orton appeared to have been the early bettors' favourite to win the other Hell in a Cell cage match on Sunday's card.

His price had gone from +150 to +100 yesterday. At this moment, he's out at +160 (2.60 EU, 8/5 UK). John Cena, who is now -210 (1.48 EU, 10/21 UK), had been -140 last night.

Of the above, the early betting action that surprises me is for the Bellas' match.

The loser will have to work as the winner's personal assistant for a month. History indicates that the heel should win this match-up because it will lead to a month of sympathy for the babyface. However, it could be a unique twist seeing Nikki having to be subservient to Brie. I cannot see it, though.

I can only guess that the early bettors are either betting on a swerve or simply taking the outsider price.

We're still a number of days away from smart money potentially indicating how these matches will finish, so I will keep a close eye on how the prices change for that match.

Odds correct as of 9am BST. For the latest, check the betting board at 5Dimes.com

PADDY POWER PUBLISHES WWE HELL IN A CELL 2014 BETTING ODDS

WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 betting odds have now been published at PaddyPower.com.

The Irish bookmaker has marked up prices for every match set to feature on Sunday's pay-per-view. Here's a rundown of the prices as of 12am this morning.

Sheamus is a 1/6 favourite to retain the WWE US Championship against The Miz. Punters looking to wager on the challenger can get him at 16/5.

The Bella Twins' match will see the loser have to work as the victor's personal assistant for thirty days. If the odds are anything to go by, Brie Bella will have a lot of work to do over the next few weeks. She has been priced up as a 15/8 outsider. Nikki is 4/11.

Rusev is 1/4 to defeat The Big Show. If you're looking to wager on Show, you can currently find him priced at 5/2.

Dean Ambrose is a 3/10 favourite to win one of the two Hell in a Cell matches on Sunday's card. His opponent - Seth Rollins - has been set at 11/5.

John Cena is 8/13 to win what will likely be the main Hell in a Cell match of the evening. Randy Orton, who will take him on, is priced at 6/5.

Paddy Power is the first company to publish odds for both the WWE Divas Championship and WWE Tag Team Championship matches.

Current Divas titleholder, AJ Lee, is a 4/7 fave to retain against Paige (5/4).

In the tag team match, Gold & Stardust have been given 1/3 odds to leave Dallas as champions. Their rivals - The Usos - have been given 2/1 odds.

I will continue monitoring these prices throughout the week.

HELL IN A CELL 2014 ODDS THROUGH TUESDAY

With WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 betting odds having been published this morning, I thought I would take a look at the 5Dimes Casino & Sportsbook to see what the customers have been wagering on in the early stages of wagering.

There hasn't been a change in the market for the US Championship match, which sees The Miz challenge Sheamus for the title.

Sheamus remains -530 (1.19 EU, 10/53 UK) with Mizanin out at +350 (4.50 EU, 7/2 UK).

Early backers appear to favour Nikki Bella to win her match against sister, Brie. Nikki is now -280 (1.36 EU, 5/14 UK), but had been -210.

Brie Bella has drifted from +160 to +200 (3.00 EU, 2/1 UK).

The Big Show has dropped from +350 to +280 (3.80 EU, 14/5 UK) in the market for his fight against Rusev. This might have been because of the angle that aired on Raw last night which put Show in a position where he vowed to avenge his opponent's attack on a soldier.

In the same period, Rusev moved from -530 to -400 (1.25 EU, 1/4 UK).

Seth Rollins' price has gone from +345 to +240 (3.40 EU, 12/5 UK) in what might end up being the first Hell in a Cell match of the evening. His opponent, Dean Ambrose, moved from -515 to -320 (1.31 EU, 5/16 UK) during the day.

Similarly, the underdog has been backed in the other Hell in a Cell bout.

Randy Orton - who was +150 earlier - is now +100 (2.00 EU, EVENS UK) with John Cena moving from -190 to -140 (1.71 EU, 5/7 UK).

I'm assuming the money landing on Randy Orton is partially due to a stipulation being added to Sunday's match.

The winner will now go on to face Brock Lesnar at an upcoming pay-per-view. There have been hints at an Orton babyface turn, so this may have lead to people to make speculative punts on the possibility Orton versus Lesnar will be an upcoming program.

The company still hasn't published odds for the Divas and WWE Tag Team Championship bouts. Once I see them live, I'll publish an update.

Odds correct as of 11:20pm BST. For the latest, check out 5Dimes.com.

5DIMES OPENS WWE HELL IN A CELL 2014 BETTING

The 5Dimes Casino & Sportsbook's WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 betting markets have now been opened at 5Dimes.com.

As of right now, the company is accepting wagers on five of this Sunday's bouts. They are: both Hell in a Cell matches, the US Championship, Rusev versus The Big Show and the contest between the Bella Twins.

Nikki Bella is an early favourite to win the match which will see the loser have to become the victor's servant for a month. She is -210 (1.48 EU, 10/21 UK) while her sister is +160 (2.60 EU, 8/5 UK).

The Miz is a +350 (4.50 EU, 7/2 UK) underdog to defeat US Champion, Sheamus. The Irishman is currently available at -530 (1.19 EU, 10/53 UK).

Similar odds have been applied to the match between The Big Show and Rusev. Show is +350 and Rusev is -530.

John Cena is -190 (1.53 EU, 10/19 UK) to win his Hell in a Cell match against Randy Orton. Punters looking for an outsider victory can get Orton with a price of +150 (2.50 EU, 3/2 UK).

Dean Ambrose is favoured to win his Hell in a Cell match against Seth Rollins. Ambrose is -515 (1.19 EU, 20/103 UK) with Rollins +345 (4.45 EU, 69/20 UK).

I expect odds for the remaining two matches on the card (AJ Lee vs Paige & Dusts versus The Usos) to be added to the betting board within the next few days.

Keep checking back for updates throughout the week.

Odds correct as of 9am BST. For the latest, check 5Dimes.com.

WHERE TO BET ON WWE HELL IN A CELL 2014

World Wrestling Entertainment's next pay-per-view - Hell in a Cell - will take place from Dallas, Texas on Sunday October 26th. In this post, I'll point out the online sportsbooks where you're likely to find betting odds for the event.

As per usual, I'll name the bookmakers that offered betting markets for the most recent pay-per-view. In this case, it's WWE Night of Champions 2014.

The 5Dimes Sportsbook

The 5Dimes Casino & Sportsbook has offered WWE match markets for many years and was the first company to offer betting odds for Night of Champions in September.
Markets for Night of Champions first saw the light of day either late Monday or early Tuesday (depending on where you live). I found the company having odds out right after the go-home episode of Raw surprising as they had been getting published in the middle of the week before recent PPVs.
I fully expect 5Dimes to have WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 lines up. If they go by the schedule like last time, the odds could be up as early as the 20th/21st October. Failing that, they should be up around the 23rd.

Where to find the odds:
5Dimes' WWE markets are found under 'Wrestling' in the 'Other Sports' category of 5Dimes.com.

Paddy Power

The Irish bookmaker, Paddy Power, was the 2nd place to produce lines for Night of Champions 2014. These prices went live on the Wednesday afternoon before the pay-per-view.
Paddy Power is one of Europe's most popular bookies and has allowed his customers to wager on professional wrestling supercards for years. 
I'm expecting the Hell in a Cell 2014 markets will be up around the same timeframe - midweek before the show. 

Where to find the odds:
When available, you'll be able to find the Hell in a Cell 2014 markets under 'Sports Novelties' at PaddyPower.com. For an easier route, you can follow this direct link to Paddy Power's WWE Betting Page.

Sky Bet

Sky Bet is another European-based company that consistently produces betting odds for upcoming WWE pay-per-views.
In September, SkyBet.com was the third website to publish betting odds for Night of Champions. These markets opened on the Thursday afternoon leading up to PPV Sunday. 

Where to find the odds:
When Sky Bet's WWE prices are up, you'll find them under 'Wrestling' on the sportsbook menu at SkyBet.com. You can follow this direct link to Sky Bet's WWE Betting Page.

Betfair

The Betfair Sportsbook entered the WWE Betting party earlier this year when it published betting lines for WrestleMania XXX. Since then, the company has produced odds for other events.
Interestingly, Betfair decided to compile odds for the Brock Lesnar versus John Cena Night of Champions main event first. These odds were available from the Thursday before showtime.  Lines for the rest of the card went live on the Saturday before the event.

Where to find the odds:
Betfair publishes WWE odds under 'Special Bets' in the Sportsbook menu at Betfair.com. Alternatively, you can check out Betfair's Special Bets page.

William Hill

William Hill was the last company to publish betting odds for Night of Champions. They went up on the day of the show. This wasn't the norm for William Hill as the company usually produces lines earlier on a PPV weekend. What was also surprising is the fact the company kept their markets open throughout the show, so customers were able to punt on the matches in-play. 
I'm unsure whether this will be a regular thing or was simply because the event was being aired on Sky Sports. It's something worth checking out on for Hell in a Cell.

Where to find odds:
William Hill's WWE markets will be found under 'TV/Specials' on the sportsbook menu at WilliamHill.com.

Note
On the weekend of Night of Champions, I contacted Ladbrokes.com and was told the compilers were preparing to publish lines. I made regular checks throughout the Saturday, but they never saw the light of day. 
I'm unsure whether the decision to not publish the odds was a one-off, so it might be worth checking Ladbrokes.com for Hell in a Cell odds on the weekend of the show.

The above list are just names that produced odds for WWE Night of Champions 2014. A full list of bookies that have published markets for previous WWE events can be found at BetOnWrestling.co.uk's WWE Sportsbook Review Page.

I hope this has been of some use to you. As per usual, I will be updating the blog as soon as I notice WWE betting lines have been published for Hell in a Cell. 

Keep checking back & good luck with your bets!
