Carmella And R-Truth 1/3 Favourites To Make Mixed Match Challenge Final And More

Carmella and R-Truth are 1/3 favourites to beat Asuka and The Miz in next week's semi-final of the Mixed Match Challenge tournament.

Both teams progressed to the next stage of season two last night when Carmella and R-Truth beat Charlotte Flair and Jeff Hardy while their opponents for next week's round toppled Naomi and Jimmy Uso.

A win in favour of last year's winners will pay out at 2/1.

The bookies have also priced up a proposition market where clients can punt on the gender of the legal participants in the match when the fall is counted.  If either R-Truth or Miz score the decision, the gamblers will have their wagers settled at 4/9. A decision in favour of the ladies will pay out at 6/4.

The winners will square off against the team that qualifies from the semi-final featuring talent from the Raw brand.

Kambi first published a market for the match last week. It was republished today once again showing interest in Bayley and Balor to go over Alicia Fox and Jinder Mahal.

As noted in previous posts where I've written about this match - Finn Balor is already scheduled to wrestle on the night of the final. I surmise this is why the oddsmakers opened with Bayley and Balor as outsiders.

Just like with the other semi-final, Kambi is also taking bets on the 'Gender of Decision'. It has been adjusted for the first time since December 1st with the punters appearing to back Bayley and Alicia Fox being involved in the finish as 'Female' has dipped from 17/20 into 3/4.

A decision with Finn Balor and Jinder Mahal as the legal teammates will now pay out at 19/20 - an increase from its opening 17/20.

The bookie has also republished their outright winner market. On top of this, they've also added a special where clients can guess the finalists.

It isn't surprising to see that the two favourites to win their respective matches on next week's show are at the top of this particular market at 1/2. 

Before the tournament began, I backed Bayley/Balor and Carmella/R-Truth to be the outright winners so I'm hopeful that will be the match as it'll place me in a win-win situation going into December 16th. 

It would be typical of this tournament for Finn Balor to end up being replaced on the night of the show following a loss to Drew McIntyre, wouldn't it?

Prices correct as of 3PM GMT. The markets can be found on websites that publish Kambi's WWE Odds.
