A Final Look At Kambi's WWE HIAC 2019 Observer Markets Now That We Know The Results

Dave Meltzer's review of WWE Hell in a Cell 2019 was published in this week's issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and, now that it has been released, Kambi's star ratings betting markets will soon be settled.

Going into the weekend, WWE hadn't announced a full card for the PPV. Therefore, Kambi's oddsmakers were limited with what they could offer in regards to the star ratings markets.

By Friday, three matches were announced. A fourth - Bayley .vs. Charlotte Flair for the WWE Smackdown Women's Championship - was confirmed the following day. Therefore, Kambi was only able to cover the four bouts that were set in stone a day before the event.

The Over/Under markets saw two of the bouts go Over and the other half fall Under.

Becky Lynch's successful WWE Raw Women's Championship defence over Sasha Banks was awarded four stars in Meltzer's review. This was tied with the Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns versus Luke Harper and Erick Rowan tornado tag team match that followed on the card.

The Raw Women's Championship market had a line of 3.75, so those who backed the 'Over' will have bets settled in their favour. Looking at the betting, it seems that the bookies were taking action on the eventual winning selection as the odds went from 21/20 on September 18th and were down to EVS on the evening of the event.

Customers also appear to have sided with the 'Over' in the tornado tag team match. Kambi set the line at three stars and the 'Over' was backed from the EVS on September 28th all the way to 1/3 just before the event.

Charlotte Flair's WWE Smackdown Women's Championship victory over Bayley was given two-and-a-quarter stars in Dave Meltzer's review. 

With the match only announced over the weekend, Kambi's Over/Under market was installed on Saturday morning. There were adjustments made on Sunday, but - as you can see below - they went the way of the 'Over'.

The eventual winning selection started off at 4/5 but was out to 7/4 by Sunday night.

Meltzer's review started with a great opener. It read 'WWE's Hell in a Cell show started out strong, and ended with a bang. The wrong kind of bang.'

And a bang it was as the main event - which was declared a 'Match Stoppage' - was graded minus two stars by the newsletter's editor.

It should go without saying that the 'Under' turned out to be the winning selection. The line was set at 3.5 stars on September 18th. The market remained stationary right up to Saturday morning when the 'Over' was backed from 19/20 into 17/20. This meant that the 'Under' was pushed out to 21/20 from 19/20.

By Sunday evening, things had changed. The 'Under' had fallen to 1/2 while the 'Over' had drifted all the way out to what turned out to be its rightful place of  31/20.

The best price would have been the 21/20 that was available for most of the weekend.

There were two other star ratings specials for the event. Both were head-to-heads to see which match had the most star ratings.

The first matchbet was available from October 1st and had the two Hell in a Cell cage matches competing against each other.

Lynch .vs. Banks won this one. From the betting, you can see that - despite the first sign of wagering siding with the bouts to get the 'Same Star Rating' - the late movements came in favour of the eventual winner. It went from 7/10 all the way down to 7/20 in the period it was available.

The second head-to-head was created after Bayley .vs. Charlotte Flair was confirmed. The bout was up against the tornado tag team match that tied for best match of the night with four stars, so the ladies were one-and-three-quarter stars behind.

The wagering points to the eventual winner being backed as the price was 3/4 on Saturday morning and was then down to 7/10 almost twenty-four hours later. The market remained at these prices right up to the close later that day.

Hopefully, I'll be back next month with a similar post for Crown Jewel. Fingers crossed that we get a full card in time for that one.
