What I didn't get to write about yesterday afternoon was the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter Star Ratings odds for both the Universal Championship and John Cena .vs. Roman Reigns matches.
For those of you new to this, the oddsmakers have put up betting markets where customers can have a bet on how the upcoming matches are rated by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter's Dave Meltzer when he reviews the matches in the issue that will come out in the days following the event.
Universal Championship SpecialBoth WON star ratings markets were released on Friday afternoon. When this one was put up, the traders set the line for Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship defence at 4 stars. The odds were 6/4 for 'Over 4.0 Stars', 'Under 4.0 Stars' was also 6/4 and the option to bet 'Exactly 4.0 Stars' was 17/20.
As you can see, the prices remained stationary for the first few days that the market was available.
John Cena .vs. Roman ReignsThe line for the John Cena versus Roman Reigns match was set at four-and-a-quarter stars. All three options - 'Over', 'Exactly' and 'Under' were available at 5/4 each to begin with.
Unlike the Universal Championship special, there was evident activity in this market because the odds for 'Under 4.25 Stars' was cut into 11/10.
They left 'Exactly 4.25 Stars' at 5/4, but pushed 'Over' up to 7/5.
Both markets will likely return when the No Mercy 2017 match odds are republished. In the meantime, you can check out the other WWE betting markets on the websites that publish Kambi's odds.
