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
-110
8/8 10:00PM
+105
-145
11/8 10:30AM
-120
-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
-210
6/8 10:30PM
+205
-285
14/8 11:00PM
+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
8/8 10:00PM

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

Paddy Power's SummerSlam 2018 Odds

Paddy Power's WWE SummerSlam 2018 markets were published sometime today.

In this post, I'll quickly run through all of the prices as of shortly after 9PM BST this evening.

Finn Balor is 4/9 to Baron Corbin's 6/4.

The Miz is an 8/11 fave for his meeting with Daniel Bryan (EVS).

The New Day, who will challenge The Bludgeon Brothers for the WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship, are EVS while the champs are 8/11.

Carmella has been given odds of 5/4 to successfully retain the WWE Smackdown Women's Championship in the triple threat match against Becky Lynch (13/8) and Charlotte Flair (9/4).

Ronda Rousey is 1/7 for his Raw Women's Championship challenge against titleholder - Alexa Bliss (10/3).

WWE US Champion, Shinsuke Nakamura, is a 4/11 fave to get a decision over Jeff Hardy (17/10).

Braun Strowman is 4/11 to be awarded a victory over Kevin Owens in the match where his Money in the Bank briefcase is at stake. An Owens win will payout at odds of 17/10.

WWE Champion, AJ Styles, is 8/11 for his defence against Samoa Joe (EVS).

Universal Champion - Brock Lesnar - has been installed as a 13/8 outsider for his meeting with Roman Reigns (4/9).

Most of these markets are also available from Betfair.

Post-Raw SummerSlam 2018 Odds

Last night, I published a post a little under two hours ahead of WWE Raw where I wrote about the latest SummerSlam 2018 odds from the 5Dimes Sportsbook. The plan, as always, was to return to the sportsbook's website the following morning - once I had watched the show - to see if anything that was said or done during the episode had forced any of the markets to be adjusted.

Well, as far as Raw goes, none of the matches specific to that brand were altered overnight. In fact, only one market is showing different pricing when contrasted to yesterday's 11PM visit.

The market of note is the one for a Smackdown grudge match.


Date/Time
Daniel Bryan
The Miz
8/8 10:00PM
+130
-170
9/8 10:00PM
-105
-135
13/8 11:00PM
"
"
14/8 11:00AM
+125
-165


As you can see in the table above, The Miz went from -135 into -165 since 11PM. His opponent for Sunday, Daniel Bryan, has drifted out to +125 from -105.

Here are the other prices, for those who may have missed last night's update:


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

Dolph Ziggler +205
Seth Rollins -285

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

5Dimes' WWE SummerSlam 2018 Odds For Monday Morning

Daniel  Bryan .vs. The Miz
There are a lot of markets that are showing the same pricing as previous posts. This is one of them. Daniel Bryan is -105 to The Miz at -135.

Finn Balor .vs. Baron Corbin
Balor dropped from -170 into -230 sometime between Saturday morning and yesterday morning. With Balor lowering, the bookies have moved Baron Corbin to +170 from +130.

Another market that hasn't changed for now. Shinsuke Nakamura is -265 while Jeff Hardy is +185.

Cedric Alexander .vs. Drew Gulak
Both wrestlers are still at -120 pick 'em.

WWE Smackdown Women's Championship
When I last published an update about this particular match, I noted that Carmella had dropped from +245 into +130. When I looked at the prices yesterday morning, the champ had been cut into +115.
'The Field' versus the favourite (Carmella) moved up to -155 from -170 between Saturday and Sunday.
The other selections - Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair - drifted from +160 to +185 and +210 to +235 respectively.

Bludgeon Bros. .vs. The New Day
The champions have been -140 favourites since August 9th. This was after they moved up from -150 when The New Day fell from +110 to +100.

Latest From 5Dimes (11/8 AM)

It has been a little over a day since I last wrote about the WWE SummerSlam 2018 lines from 5Dimes, so I'm back with a short update.

There are three match markets showing differing prices to yesterday.

The Cruiserweight Championship market is now at a pick 'em as it has seen Cedric Alexander fall from +105 into -120. As a result, his challenger, Drew Gulak, has been raised from -145 to -120.

Finn Balor's price to get a decision over Baron Corbin has dropped to -170 from -155. A victory for the latter will now payout at +130 - an increase from +115.

Finally, the other change has occurred in the WWE Smackdown Women's Championship market.

Carmella was backed yesterday. She has now been cut to +130, but was +245 when I last posted an update.

Becky Lynch has now moved to +160 from +110 and Charlotte Flair from +185 to +210.

Those looking to back the favourite can oppose Carmella at -170. Opposing the favourite was -150 yesterday.

And that's all for now. You can read yesterday's post to check out the prices that haven't been adjusted.

New Feuds Markets From Kambi

The oddsmakers from Kambi have added more Feuds markets.

For those new to these specials - the bookies have listed a selection of potential - and not so potential - matches that could take place at any point between now and the end of WrestleMania 35. If the match occurs within the rules of the market, then bets will be settled on the winner.

As an example - in June,  when these specials were first published - the bookies were accepting wagers on a possible Daniel Bryan .vs. The Miz match.

On this week's episode of Smackdown, the bout was confirmed for SummerSlam so - per the rules - this is eligible.

Daniel Bryan .vs. The Miz Feud Betting

As you can see in the table above, there was back-and-forth action despite Bryan being the favourite throughout.

A regular match market for SummerSlam has now opened with The Miz a favourite. He's 8/13 and Bryan is 23/20.

Back to the five new additions.

Dean Ambrose .vs. Roman Reigns
With Dean Ambrose rumoured to be on his way back to WWE imminently, the bookies have added a market where customers can punt on the winner of a match between he and Roman Reigns.
Ambrose is a 7/5 outsider while Reigns is 1/2.
I suppose there's a chance of them meeting if either one turns heel.

Dean Ambrose .vs. Seth Rollins
I think this one has a good chance of happening because this is what was a rumoured match for WrestleMania 34 before Ambrose was injured. It wouldn't surprise me if WWE tries to go with this match for Mania 35.
They've placed Ambrose as a 7/10 favourite. A win for Rollins will pay out at EVS.

Dolph Ziggler .vs. Drew McIntyre
This has to happen, right? The bookies have McIntyre as a 4/9 favourite while the current WWE Intercontinental Champion is 6/4.

The Rock .vs. Elias
There's a good reason why this one has been done even though I don't think any bets on this market will be settled as winners. It's because Elias has been mentioning The Rock on TV. With that said, I don't think this will turn into anything other than an angle or something. At best, it'll be something like The Rock .vs. Erick Rowan from WrestleMania 32 where it's a quick surprise win. It's important to note that, if The Rock and Elias have an impromptu meeting like the Mania 32 match Rock had with Rowan, then it won't count as - per the rules - the match has to be advertised at least 24 hours before the show it takes place.
They've priced Rock at 1/10 to Elias' 9/2.

The Rock .vs. Roman Reigns
If The Rock is coming back for one more match, then this should be it. They have listed Rock as a 7/4 outsider. A successful bet on Reigns will pay out 2/5. Unlike the Elias thing, if - and it's a big IF - it's Rock versus Reigns, it'll obviously be announced in enough time for bets to stand.

The markets can be found under 'Feuds (Road to WrestleMania 35) on the websites that publish Kambi's Wrestling odds. A couple of examples can be found below.


Latest SummerSlam 2018 Prices From 5Dimes

It has been over a day - and then some - since I published a post noting that the 5Dimes Sportsbook had installed new markets for WWE SummerSlam 2018. I've been recording the odds since then, but there has been nothing major to write about.

The only market that is showing differing odds to Wednesday night is the one for Daniel Bryan .vs. The Miz.


Date/Time

On Wednesday, Bryan was a +130 outsider, but fell to -105 sometime yesterday. As a result of this, the oddsmakers have moved his opponent up to -135 from -170.

The Miz is still a favourite. And rightfully so. Myself and many others - based on how the betting has gone over here in Europe - believe that The Miz should win this one.

As noted, this was the only market that has had any evident activity for days. Here are the rest of the prices for those checking in for the first time.

Finn Balor -155
Baron Corbin +115

Shinsuke Nakamura -265
