Kambi's oddsmakers have published pro wrestling TV audience specials for next week's shows.
As per usual, they're in the form of proposition bets. The customers have to bet 'Yes' or 'No' to the shows beating, or doing less than, the number the bookies have set.
For Raw, they have set the line at 2.3 Million or more. Those who believe it'll go over that number will find the 'Yes' a 7/10 favourite. Those who expect it to do lower can back 'No' at even money.
NXT on the USA Network has a line of 675,000 or more. Those looking for the show to beat that number can get the 'Yes' at 19/20 while its opposing selection is 3/4.
AEW Dynamite's line is set at 925,000 or more. The bookies have the 'Yes' favoured at 13/20 with the 'No' out at 11/10.
With Smackdown returning to FOX after spending last week on FS1, the line has been placed back to the over 2 Million mark with '2.4 Million or More' being the offer. 'Yes' has been favoured at 4/5 and the 'No' is 9/10.
What's interesting about the Smackdown episode is it'll be a day following Crown Jewel, so I am interested to see if there is any kind of pick up. For what it's worth, the total average audience for the October 18th episode (the last time it was on FOX) was 2,441,500.
There could potentially be mainstream coverage coming out off Crown Jewel with Cain Velasquez and Strowman/Fury on the card (although Fury is not as big a name over in the US as he is here in the UK) that might assist the number, so I am going to have a small bet on the 'Yes' once I've published this post.
There is also a spread special in which clients can gamble on whether AEW Dynamite gets 250,000 more viewers than NXT on USA. Both 'Yes' and 'No' are available at 17/20 each.
The number for last week's WWE Smackdown on FS1 will be released tomorrow. for those who may be looking for a post covering the remaining TV props from last week.
