The conclusion of the B Block round of matches in this year's G1 Climax are set to take place today. As per usual, I'll write about the betting odds for each contest.
Before I begin, there has been a slight change to the B Block Winner market that I last posted an update about last night.
I checked in with the market at 8:00AM BST today and it still listed EVIL as a 13/20 favourite to be at the top of the group when all is said and done later today. The other potential winners - SANADA and Tetsuya Naito - were both at 5/2.
With forty-five minutes of my first visit of the day, I noticed that SANADA's odds had lowered into 9/5.
EVIL was still a favourite. However, his price had risen to 3/1 while Naito was moved up to 3s.
Toru Yano (3-5) .vs. Yoshi-Hashi (1-7)
Kambi's market for today's opening tournament match started off with Toru Yano a 13/25 favourite and Yoshi-Hashi at 13/10.
In the end, the market closed with Yoshi-Hashi as an 11/25 favourite. The early favourite ended up at 8/5.
Match Winner: Yoshi-Hashi
Juice Robinson (3-5) .vs. Hirooki Goto (4-4)
When betting began for the Juice Robinson versus Hirooki Goto match, the bookies had Robinson as a 4/6 favourite. His opponent was 27/25.
By yesterday evening, Robinson was down to 13/25. He was still at that price when I visited the website this morning. However, when I made a final visit at 8:45AM BST, I noticed he had lowered into 2/5.
With Robinson's odds lowered on the two occasions I tracked them, Hirooki Goto rose from the 27/25 to 7/4 with a stop at 13/10.
Match Winner: Juice Robinson
Hiroshi Tanahashi (3-5) .vs. Zack Sabre Jr. (5-3)
Kambi opened a market for the third tournament match of the day on Monday with Hiroshi Tanahashi a 3/4 favourite. A decision in favour of Zack Sabre Jr was offered at 19/20.
When the market was republished on Thursday evening, the favourite was down into 13/25 while ZSJ was up to 13/10.
Tanahashi was down to 2/5 by yesterday morning and was then a slightly shorter 7/20 later that day. His price was unchanged when I took a look over the market on the two occasions this morning.
Zack Sabre Junior closed as a 19/10 underdog.
Match Winner: Hiroshi Tanahashi
Tetsuya Naito (6-2) .vs. KENTA (4-4)
Tetsuya Naito started out as an underdog to beat KENTA in the penultimate match of B Block when a market for this meeting was released last month.
The current IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Champion was 27/25 to KENTA's 4/6.
When all was said and done, the market closed with the early favourite down into 11/25 while Naito was up to 8/5.
Match Winner: KENTA
SANADA (5-3) .vs. EVIL (6-2)
The SANADA .vs. EVIL main event market closed with both selections at 17/20 apiece. This was following SANADA's odds dipping from EVS sometime between 8:00AM and 8:45AM BST this morning.
When the market was first priced up in September, the bookmakers listed SANADA as a 4/6 fave with EVIL at 27/25.
Match Winner: SANADA
