Kambi's O/U Observer Star Ratings Results For NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day

Only one match fell below the line in Kambi's Wrestling Observer Newsletter star ratings over/under markets for this past Sunday's NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day.

The bout of note was the NXT Women's Championship match, which saw Io Shirai retain her title over Toni Storm and Mercedes Martinez. It received three-and-three quarter stars in Dave Meltzer's review from inside the February 22nd issue of the Wrestling Observer.

Kambi's line was set at four stars. The eventual winner - 'Under 4 Stars' - was a 4/6 favourite over the 27/25 its opposition - '4 Stars Or More' - was offered in the period when the market was available.

The remaining four matches, apart from one which landed exactly on Kambi's line, went over by at least half a star.

The match which landed exactly on Kambi's line was the main event - Finn Balor .vs. Pete Dunne - which scored four-and-a-half stars from Dave Meltzer.  

'4.5 Stars Or More' was the punters' pick for the contest, which saw Balor retain his strap against The Bruiserweight. As you'll see below, the selection started as a 4/6 favourite on Saturday morning. It was down to 11/20 by 6:30PM GMT that evening and fell into 1/2 on the night of the show.

The NXT North American Championship match, which saw Johnny Gargano retain with a win over Kushida, was the bout that exceeded Kambi's line the most. It went three quarters of a star higher than Kambi's line. 

Going by the betting, the eventual winner was also the punters' choice to win. '4 Stars Or More' started out as an 11/20 favourite was backed into 1/2 by Saturday evening and was then at 2/5 on the morning of the show.
