2 New WWE Fastlane '23 Markets Released

BetOnline has published markets for the new WWE Fastlane 2023 matches that have been announced by WWE.

On last night's episode of WWE Smackdown, as expected, LA Knight was confirmed as John Cena's tag team partner for the match against Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso.

As of this evening, the sportsbook lists Cena and Knight as -500 favourites over the Bloodline members. A decision for Uso and Sikoa will pay out at odds of +300.

Also confirmed for next weekend's event is a triple threat match for Iyo Sky's WWE Women's Championship. She is a -300 fave while her opponents - Asuka and Charlotte Flair - are both available at +400 each.

In the most recent post, I noted that the market for Seth Rollins' World Heavyweight Championship defence against Shinsuke Nakamura.

WWE Fastlane 2023 Betting

As you can see, in the table above, Rollins odds to win the last man standing match have declined since Thursday's post. He had been backed from -200 into -250 by yesterday evening and has since dropped into -300.

The option to wager on Nakamura, which was +150 on Thursday, has now moved up to +200.

First Fastlane 2023 Market Published By BetOnline

Seth Rollins has opened as a favourite to once again beat Shinsuke Nakamura when they meet at next week's WWE FastLane event.

WWE FastLane 2023 - Rollins .vs. Nakamura

The BetOnline Sportsbook is currently listing the World Heavyweight Champion as a -200 favourite to beat Nakamura in their last man standing match.

A victory for the challenger will pay out at a price of +150.

This is the only market for the event currently available from the sportsbook. A 2-on-1 handicap match - which is being billed as John Cena .vs. Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa - is also being advertised by WWE. However, that could change depending on the status of LA Knight, who was initially set to team with Cena. Knight was unable to appear on last week's edition of Smackdown to set up the match after testing positive for Covid.

Cargill Joins WWE, Becomes Rumble Favourite

In a press release, and a series of social media posts, World Wrestling Entertainment announced the signing of Jade Cargill yesterday.

This news has resulted in the former All Elite Wrestling TBS Champion becoming a betting favourite to win the 2024 Women's Royal Rumble.

Jade Cargill Signs For WWE

I first noticed Cargill on Sky Bet's market for January's battle royal not long after news of her departure from AEW was doing the rounds. At that time, she was priced at 10/1.

Upon WWE's confirmation, I revisited the Sky Bet website and noticed WWE's  new signing at a shorter 6/1. However, late yesterday evening, that price had shortened to the point where Sky Bet listed Cargill as its 3/1 favourite.

I had backed Cargill with the sportsbook at 6/1 placing the selection in a couple of doubles. One was with Cody Rhodes to win the men's Rumble and the second with The Rock to do so.

As of the time of writing, Paddy Power is offering the better price on a Cargill Rumble victory. 

The Floridian is 10/3 with the Irish bookmaking company. The selection was at that very same price when news of Cargill potentially joining WWE was circulating earlier this month.

Punk To Return To WWE Prop Bet Published

Now that CM Punk has been released by All Elite Wrestling, the oddsmakers from BetOnline have created a proposition market which asks whether or not Punk will return to World Wrestling Entertainment in time for WrestleMania 40.

BetOnline forwarded me an email with odds of +400 for 'Yes' and -600 for 'No'. However, on the website, the only option available - as of the time of writing - is the option to gamble on 'Yes'. 

I have read the AEW press release announcing Punk's release and have also seen the two videos of Tony Khan addressing the situation.

Going by the wording and tone, it would not surprise me IF a legal issue arises between the two parties. If this turns out to be the case, it might not be a benefit to Punk if he were to gain employment immediately after his firing.

And that's even if he and/or WWE wants to do business together again.

WrestleMania 40 is set to take place on the weekend of April 6 and 7 2024.

The market is available under 'Wrestling - Futures' on the BetOnline Website.

WWE Payback 2023 Betting Favourites

Here are the betting favourites for tonight's WWE Payback as the show was about to start.

The selections are ranked in order of strength, starting with the heaviest odds, using the markets that are available from the BetOnline Website.

  • Rhea Ripley
  • LA Knight
  • Becky Lynch
  • Seth Rollins
  • Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn
  • Rey Mysterio

BetOnline Publishes MITB Cash-In Odds For WWE Payback '23

In a follow-up to the most recent post, the oddsmakers from BetOnline have added one more specials market to its coverage of WWE Payback 2023.

They are offering +400 for Damian Priest to cash-in his Money in the Bank briefcase during tonight's event.

Damian Priest

The proposition market which asks whether JD McDonagh will interfere in the Undisputed Tag Team Championship match has also been adjusted.

In the most recent post, I noted that BetOnline was offering the 'Yes' at +100 for McDonagh to cause interference in the Steel City Street Fight. Those odds have now fallen into -150.

Those who don't think McDonagh will be involved in the tag match can now get odds of +110 for 'No'. It was previously a -140 favourite.

WWE Payback '23 Odds As Of 5PM BST

Here are all of the match odds price adjustments I've been able to record for tonight's WWE Payback event.

As well as looking at the match markets, I'll also point out some props/specials that have been installed today.

LA Knight .vs. The Miz
When I first came across the market for LA Knight .vs. The Miz, BetOnline listed Knight as a -5,000 favourite to The Miz's +1,000.

A couple of days after that, I noticed Miz's odds had been reduced to +800 with Knight's price, still as a fave, to -2,500. Then, a little over a day later, Knight and Miz were back to where they were at the start.

WWE Payback 2023 Betting

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship
The market for the Steel City Street Fight had Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions - Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn - as the favourites over the selection named 'The Judgment Day', which is being advertised as Finn Balor and Damian Priest.

WWE Payback 2023 Betting

Within a couple of days of first taking note of the odds, the challengers' odds were snipped from +500 into +400 while those or Owens and Zayn moved up from -1,000 to -700.

Sometime today, BetOnline installed a proposition market for this match. It asks whether JD McDonagh will 'interfere during Judgment Day match'. Surprisingly, 'Yes' is at +100 and 'No' is a -140 favoured.

The last few weeks of TV leads one to the opinion that 'Yes' should be considered the favourite in this prop.

WWE United States Championship
On the topic of props and The Judgment Day, there is a special available which asks whether Dominik Mysterio will interfere 'on his dad's match'. The only offer is 'Yes' at +400 and I believe, even at that price, it's too low because I don't see why they would have Dominik interfere in this match because both Dominik and Rey are on separate brands and moving in different directions right now (yes, they were on opposing brands before their WrestleMania match, but this is different because it looks like Rey will eventually have a split/feud with Santos Escobar).

As for the match odds, Rey has been a -500 favourite to beat Austin Theory (+300) since the market opened. However, it's worth noting that - when I checked in this morning - Theory was off the board. 

WWE Payback 2023 Betting

The challenger has since been reinserted at the +300 he had been earlier this week.

Women's World Championship
The Women's World Championship market had titleholder, Rhea Ripley, as a -700 fave on August 23rd. She has since plummeted into -5,000.

As a result of Ripley's drop, the challenger - Raquel Rodriquez - has been pushed out from +400 to +1,000.

WWE Payback 2023 Betting

Becky Lynch .vs. Trish Stratus
Becky Lynch's price to get a win over Trish Stratus, inside a steel cage, was at -1,000 on August 23rd. It was moved into -2,000 sometime between 8:30AM and 5:00PM today.

A victory for Stratus will now pay out at +700. This is up from the earlier +500.

World Heavyweight Championship
The first adjustments I recorded in the match for Seth Rollins' World Heavyweight Championship defence against Shinsuke Nakamura saw the challenger dip from +425 into +400. However, after that, every other price drop has sided with the titleholder.

WWE Payback 2023 Betting

Seth Rollins is currently -1,250 to go over in this one. He was -800 when BetOnline first emailed me the prices. However, his price was -700 by the time I accessed the website. His odds have descended since August 28th and has been at his current price for the past couple of days.

Other Specials
As noted above, there are props and specials available for the show. Here are the other specials alongside the Dominik Mysterio and JD McDonagh markets.

Jimmy Uso to appear during the show +500
Roman Reigns to appear during the show +900
John Cena to have a match during the show +300
