WrestleMania 34 And Road To WrestleMania 34 Champions Specials Notes For July 29th

The Kambi oddsmakers republished their WrestleMania 34 and Road to WrestleMania 34 markets yesterday, so thought I'd publish an update with notes on how the odds have changed since I last looked through the markets on July 15th. (Check out THIS POST and THIS POST).

WWE Universal Champion After WrestleMania 34
This market will pay out on whoever is the WWE Universal Champion at the close of WrestleMania 34. It is still showing the same pricing as July 15th. There are joint-favourites at the top of the board in the form of John Cena and Roman Reigns. They're EVS.

WWE Champion After WrestleMania 34
Just like with the Universal Championship market, there are no price differences here. There is a three-way tie at the top with the following three names available at 6/4 each: AJ Styles, John Cena and Shinsuke Nakamura.

WWE Raw Women's Champion After WrestleMania 34
Another market with no evident change since July 15th. The current titleholder, Alexa Bliss, is a 7/4 fave to be holding the strap following Mania.

There have been changes made to this market. All eyes on Carmella.

The 2017 Ms. Money in the Bank has continued her descent from 6/1 since winning the briefcase that will guarantee her a title shot for the WWE Smackdown Women's Championship. She was 6/4 a few weeks ago, but is now 3/4.
With Carmella's odds moving in, the traders have improved the odds for Becky Lynch, Nikki Bella, Asuka and the current titleholder, Naomi.

To Win Either World Or Universal Championship On Road To WrestleMania
A market where customers can have a bet on certain names winning either the Universal or World Championships from the time the bet is struck right up to the night of WrestleMania 34 has also been adjusted.

This year's Mr. Money in the Bank - Baron Corbin - has moved in from 1/10 to 1/16, Roman Reigns has been cut from 1/34 to 1/40 and Shinsuke Nakamura - who was 1/5 previously - is now 1/7.
With the three names being backed, the oddsmakers have increased Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and Seth Rollins.

Next To Win World Or Universal Head-to-Heads
For those of you who are new to this, the oddsmakers have priced up a handful of markets where two wrestlers are paired together. The first wrestler who wins a World or Universal Championship at any point from the bet being struck right up to the end of WrestleMania 34 will be the winner. If neither grappler wins one of the major titles, the 'Neither wins' option will be the call.

Baron Corbin .vs. Bray Wyatt
This market is still showing Baron Corbin as a 1/10 favourite to snare a championship ahead of Bray Wyatt. A winning wager on Wyatt will pay out at odds of 10/1 while the 'Neither' option is 3/1.

AJ Styles .vs. Braun Strowman
With Braun Strowman in the main event mix for the Universal Championship at SummerSlam 2017, the oddsmakers have snipped his odds from 2/1 into 6/4. AJ Styles - who as US Champion will likely be out of the WWE Championship picture for the time being - has improved from 3/10 into 2/5. 
'Neither Win Title' has stayed at 6s.

Dean Ambrose .vs. Seth Rollins
It's the 'Neither Win Title' that has shortened in this market where Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins oppose each other. It has moved in from 1/4 to 1/8. As a result, Ambrose has jumped out to 8/1 from 11/2 and Rollins from 47/20 to 3/1. Going by TV, I believe there's a chance that they both could be seeing another kind of championship on the road to WrestleMania in the form of the WWE Raw Tag Team Titles.

Cesaro .vs. The Miz
This is another market that strongly favours 'Neither'. It has moved in from 1/15 to 1/20. Cesaro has increased from 8/1 to 10/1 while The Miz has stuck at 4/1.

Kevin Owens .vs. Sami Zayn
The head-to-head, which sees Kevin Owens up against Sami Zayn, has sided with the 'Neither' as well. It has moved in from EVS to 4/5. Zayn has drifted out to 7/2 from 3/1 and Owens has moved to 11/10 from EVS.

Roman Reigns .vs. John Cena
This is the head-to-head that has intrigued me the most ever since it was first published as I believed both wrestlers had a chance of winning their brands' respective championships at WrestleMania 34. This was before John Cena was classified as a 'Free Agent' which should increase his chance of being booked to win either of the straps. Whether he does so before Roman Reigns is another thing entirely.
For what it's worth, the oddsmakers have now Cena from 6/4 into 5/4 and moved Roman Reigns out from 1/3 to 2/5. 'Neither' stays at 10/1.
