Late Odds For NXT: Halloween Havoc (2021)

There have been a number of price adjustments to BetOnline's markets for tonight's NXT: Halloween Havoc special since I first wrote about them over the weekend.

In the first market, Toxic Attraction's Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne have fallen from +115 into -125 to be the winners of the Scareway to Hell triple threat ladder match for the NXT Women's Tag Team Championship.

As a result of Dolin and Jayne moving in, the current titleholders - Io Shirai and Zoey Stark - have risen from +135 to +145 and the third team in the contest, Indi Hartwell and Persia Pirotta, are now +250 from +175.

Another member of Toxic Attraction - Mandy Rose - will challenge Raquel Gonzalez for the NXT Women's Championship in a Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal match. 

NXT Halloween Havoc 2021 Betting

As you'll be able to view, in the table above, the challenger's odds have dropped from +100 into -120 over the last three days. 

A winning bet on Gonzalez will also pay out at -120. However, she had started out a -140 favourite.

The wheel will also be out for MSK's NXT Tag Team Championship defence against Imperium (Fabian Aichner and Marcel Barthel). It opened with the titleholders -150 faves while the 'Imperium' selection is +110. As of right now, the market is still showing its earlier prices.

Bron Breakker has been backed to beat Tommaso Ciampa in the NXT Championship match.

NXT Halloween Havoc 2021 Betting

Both competitors - in the title natch - opened at a pick 'em. However, by yesterday, the challenger had dropped into -130 while Ciampa has moved up to -110. 

When I checked in earlier this evening, Breakker was at a shorter -145 to Ciampa's +105 and now, as of the time of writing, the challenger is the  -200 favourite while a winning bet on Ciampa will now pay out at a price of +150.

AEW, NXT And WWE Betting Odds Notes For 23/10

Here is a trio of wrestling betting notes.

BetOnline's Markets For Tonight's AEW Dynamite
The oddsmakers from BetOnline released markets for tonight's AEW Dynamite.

Opening yesterday, there are three markets available. One has already been adjusted since I first became aware of their existence.

The market for another Malakai Black versus Cody Rhodes III grudge match has seen Rhodes backed from +100 into -120 to get his first win over Black.

AEW Dynamite Betting Odds

Black started out at -140, but has now moved up to -120 to make the market a pick 'em as of the time of writing.

The remaining markets are for two opening round matches in the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament.

Bryan Danielson is a -950 fave to defeat Dustin Rhodes (+500) in their meeting while Lance Archer is -500 over Eddie Kingston's +325 for their match.

NXT Halloween Havoc Odds
While looking out for the current prices for AEW Dynamite, I noticed that BetOnline has also published markets for the matches that are scheduled for next week's NXT which has a Halloween Havoc theme.

The prices, as of the time of writing, are:

MSK -150
Imperium +110

Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne +115
Io Shirai and Zoey Stark +135
Indi Hartwell and Persia Pirotta +175

Tommaso Ciampa -120
Bron Breakker -120

Raquel Gonzalez -140
Mandy Rose +100

Roman Reigns .vs. Brock Lesnar Gets 3 Stars
Dave Meltzer graded Thursday's WWE Universal Championship match - between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar - three stars in his review of WWE Crown Jewel.

This meant that Kambi has settled its Observer star ratings market with 'Three Stars Or More' winning on the Over/Under because the line was set at three stars.

Observer Star Raing Betting: Reigns vs Lesnar at Crown Jewel

As you can see, in the table above, the eventual winner appears to have been the option which the consensus backed. It started out at 7/5 when the market was first published in late-September. However, by the night of the event, it had descended into a 1/4 favourite.

WWE Crown Jewel 2021 Betting Favourites

Here are the favourites for WWE Crown Jewel 2021 as the PPV was starting.

The names aren't ranked in any particular order, but were favoured across sports betting websites in Europe and elsewhere.

- The Usos (Kick Off winners were favoured from Kambi betting agency)
- Edge
- Bill Goldberg
- Mansoor
- Zelina Vega to win Queen's Crown Tournament
- RK-Bro
- Becky Lynch
- Roman Reigns

In regards to the King of the Ring final - Sky Bet closed with Xavier Woods an 8/11 favourite over Finn Balor (EVS). Kambi currently lists Balor as a 4/5 fave to the 9/10 for Woods. 5Dimes also has Balor over Woods.

Mid-Show Update
Sky Bet's markets were republished shortly after this post went live.

Confusion Over Crown Jewel Match Stip

There is some confusion surrounding the stipulation of the Universal Championship match at WWE Crown Jewel.

At the start of the event's Kick Off, it was announced that the Roman Reigns versus Brock Lesnar meeting would be contested under no disqualification rules. Then, less than half an hour later, Kayla Braxton walked that back by stating that Reigns and Lesnar had appealed for the match to not have the new stip.

As of right now, the odds for the following methods of decision - from Kambi - are:

Pinfall 13/20
Submission (verbal, tap, passing out, towel, TKO/Ref stoppage) 19/10
Any other method 8/5

Notes About WWE Crown Jewel 2021 Betting Markets

Here are some notes I've made about the betting markets for today's WWE Crown Jewel 2021 event.

This isn't as in-depth as I usually try to make these comparison posts, but I hope it is of some interest.

The Usos .vs. The Hurt Business
From the betting websites I've been following odds for the event, Kambi is the only firm with a market for the Kick Off match.

WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champions - The Usos - are 1/20 favourites over their opponents.  A win for the challengers will pay out at 7/1.

Mansoor .vs. Mustafa Ali
Unsurprisingly, Mansoor is a heavy favourite to win another match in Saudi Arabia.

Sky Bet was the first company I noticed with a market for the match. It had Mansoor at 1/33 to Mustafa Ali's 10/1. The odds have since changed with Ali lowered into 6/1 and Mansoor now at 1/12. It's worth noting that - even though Mansoor should win - I thought 10/1 was worth a £2 gamble for an upset so that may have been why Ali's odds were trimmed.

Over on the BetOnline website, the favourite has been backed from -1,000 into -1,400.

WWE Crown Jewel 2021 - Mansoor .vs. Mustafa Ali

RK-Bro .vs. AJ Styles and Omos
Kambi's market for the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship has sided with the champs. 

RK-Bro have dropped from 2/13 into 1/14 since betting began last week.

WWE Crown Jewel Betting

A win for AJ Styles and Omos is now 11/2. It was initially 7/2.

Sky Bet's market has seen the champs backed from 1/2 into 1/16 within a little over a fortnight.

Sky Bet's WWE Crown Jewel Betting Odds

Queen's Crown and King of the Ring Finals
If you've visited this blog over the past few weeks, you may have seen that I have been covering Sky Bet's outright markets for both the Queen's Crown and King of the Ring tournaments.

Sky Bet's outright winner markets have now closed. However, the company has published regular match markets for the two finals.

King of the Ring 2021 Tournament Final Odds

When I came across the market for the King of the Ring final yesterday afternoon, I noticed that Xavier Woods was 4/5 and Finn Balor was 10/11. 

Upon this morning's visit, I noticed there had been a flip with Balor now 4/5 to Woods' 10/11.

The Queen's Crown match is unchanged from when I came across it yesterday. It lists Doudrop as a 4/7 favourite over Zelina Vega (5/4).

Bill Goldberg .vs. Bobby Lashley
The first adjustment in Kambi's market for Goldberg versus Bobby Lashley surprised me because the latter's odds slightly moved in from 7/2 into 3/1. As a result of this, Goldberg's price - as the match favourite - was moved to 1/5 from 2/13.

Goldberg is now at 1/8 while Lashley is 4/1.

You'll notice that something similar happened with Sky Bet's market with the early decline siding with Lashley and then the late betting on the fave.

WWE Crown Jewel Betting

Big E .vs. Drew McIntyre
Big E is a short-priced favourite to successfully retain the WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre.

Sky Bet has the champ at 1/20 to McIntyre's 8/1 while Kambi has Big E at 1/40 and his challenger at 8/1.

WWE Smackdown Women's Championship Triple Threat
Sky Bet was the first market I came across for Becky Lynch's WWE Smackdown Women's Title defence against Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks.

Sasha Banks was initially 5/1. I thought that - considering she will be the only member of the Smackdown roster in the match, when the draft chances take place from tomorrow - it was worth having a gamble on Banks. That may have been one of the reasons why her price was lowered early.

As of most recently, it appears as though the punters are siding with Bianca Belair because the former Smackdown Champion's odds have lowered since she challenged Charlotte Flair for Raw's version of the title on Monday. Belair winning the Smackdown strap tonight would set up a rematch - this time in a champion versus champion contest - next month at the Survivor Series even though - in that scenario - the titles would be held by ladies from the other brand.

Edge .vs. Seth Rollins
Kambi's market for the Edge versus Seth Rollins Hell in a Cell match started off with Rollins dipping from 3/1 into 2/1. This moved match favourite - Edge - up from 1/5 to 1/3. From there, however, a slide began for the favourite. He landed into 1/9 - from 2/13 - sometime before 10:15AM BST today.

WWE Crown Jewel 2021 Betting - Edge vs Seth Rollins

Roman Reigns .vs. Brock Lesnar
The Universal Championship markets tell a similar tale if you compare the odds from a couple of the websites here in Europe, but then there's a slightly different take overseas.

Both Kambi and Sky Bet opened with the early interest coming in on the titleholder.

Sky Bet's Crown Jewel Betting Odds

You'll notice that, in both examples above, that the later adjustments have been landing on the side of the challenger.

BetOnline's market slightly contrasts that narrative.

BetOnline Crown Jewel Betting Odds

The early drop - just like at Kambi and Sky Bet - went the way of Roman Reigns because he was placed at -220 from -200 while Lesnar rose to +155 from +150. Lesnar then fell back into +150 before the recent drops have sided with Reigns.

G1 Climax 31 Betting: The Final

After weeks of round robin tournament action, the thirty-first edition of the G1 Climax concludes today with the final which will pit A Block winner - Kota Ibushi - against B Block victor, Kazuchika Okada.

Leading into the tournament, and during it, Kambi customers were able to wager on numerous things to occur during the event. One of those markets was a special in which it was possible to gamble on what the final would end up being.

The eventual winner - 'Kazuchika Okada .vs. Kota Ibushi' -  started out at 9/1 when the market was put up in mid-September. A week later, it had lowered into 7/1 and continued a descent into late-September when it was available at 7/2. There was a slight increase, at the start of October, when it rose to 4/1 on October 3rd. However, a couple of days later, it was back to 7/2 and then fell - for the last time - into 5/2 on October 16th. Betting was suspended three days ago.

G1 Climax 31 Betting: Finalists

Ibushi and Okada have both won previous G1 Climax tournaments. Therefore, a proposition market - which asked whether or not there will be a first-time winner this year - will be settled with 'Yes' as the winning selection.

When the market was first installed, Kambi had 'Yes' at 9/10 while 'No' was a slight 4/5 favourite. There was a slight back-and-forth in the early stages of the tournament. However, by the latter stages, 'Yes' began to decline and was then at 1/8 when the market was last made available.

* * *

The final has now ended. It did so in an unfortunate manner with Kota Ibushi suffering an arm injury of some kind which forced a ref stoppage.

Following the decision, medics and young boys came into the ring to assist Ibushi. The bottom rope was even released to make it easy for Ibushi to leave.

Such a sad way for this tourney to conclude.

Okada was a 7/2 joint-second favourite to be the tournament winner when Kambi published its market in September. He closed as a 1/4 favourite after Kambi republished the market yesterday with the two finalists as the remaining selections.

With Okada representing B Block in the final, a prop market which asked customers whether the A Block winner would claim the G1 Climax trophy, will be settled with 'No' as the winning option.

'No' started off as a slight favourite, at odds of 4/5, over the 9/10 for 'Yes' when the market opened a week before the tournament commenced. There were back-and-forth adjustments along the way. When the market was last made available, 'No' was 21/50.

Such a gutting way to end this series of G1 Climax 31 posts. I look forward to hopefully doing the same next year back during its regular season of the summertime.

G1 Climax 31 Betting: Night 18

B Block concludes the round robin part of the G1 Climax today. By the close of the show, we'll know who - out of Kazuchika Okada and Jeff Cobb - will meet Kota Ibushi in tomorrow's final.

In today's post, I'll look at the markets for today's matches as well as tie up some loose ends by looking at prop markets that have either been settled ahead of today or will be following the conclusion of today's event.

Kambi has published match winner markets for the G1 matches on today's card. However, there is a difference between the first four and the one for the main event.

The Kazuchika Okada versus Jeff Cobb market is simply the 'B Block Winner' market that has been available since September 6th albeit with the final two eligible selections left. It differs from the regular match winner markets because - if a draw were to occur in the main event - Jeff Cobb will be declared the block winner as he is entering today's event two points clear of Okada. Should a draw occur in a regular match winner market, wagers on either side will obviously be voided.

On the subject of the B Block Winner market. Here is a final look at the main table. When I cover the main event below, I'll focus only on how the odds for Okada and Cobb changed as the tournament progressed.
G1 Climax 31 Betting: B Block Winner
Click on image to expand

With there only being two people still able to win the block on the final night, a prop market - which asked customers whether there would be over 3.5 wrestlers still in play on the last day - has been settled with 'No' as the winning selection.

It opened as a 7/5 underdog. It fell into 13/10 on September 25th and was then down to 27/25 by October 5th. The last time I saw it was twelve days ago. 

G1 Climax 31 Betting: B Block Prop Bet

A couple of remaining prop bets will be settled following today's results.

G1 Climax 31: Night 18

YOSHI-HASHI (4 points) .vs. Chase Owens (4 points)
YOSHI-HASHI beat Chase Owens in the opening tournament match of the night. He'll go to 6 points.

G1 Climax Betting: YOSHI-HASHI .vs. Chase Owens

Going by the betting, the punters appear to have been on the correct wrestler because  the eventual winner went from 5/4 into EVS sometime before 10:30AM BST yesterday morning. His price was reduced to 17/20 this morning.

Owens had started out as the match favourite at 11/20, but was out to 17/20 before the market closed.

Hirooki Goto (4 points) .vs. Tama Tonga (6 points)

G1 Climax 31 Betting: Hirooki Goto .vs. Tama Tonga

Hirooki Goto beat Tama Tonga as a 4/6 favourite in the second tournament match of the night. 

The market opened on Monday , but didn't change over those two days.

Hiroshi Tanahashi (8 points) .vs. Taichi (4 points)
Taichi beat Hiroshi Tanahashi in a really good match which played on the Taichi injury that he has been selling for the past few rounds.

The eventual winner started out as a 13/10 underdog while Tanahashi was 13/25. A few hours after the market was published, Taichi's price had lowered into EVS. It fell once more this morning when Kambi dropped Taichi into 17/20 and pushed Tanahashi up to 17/20 so both men entered the match as betting equals.

G1 Climax 31 Betting: Hiroshi Tanahashi .vs. Taichi

SANADA (8 points) .vs. EVIL (12 points)
EVIL won against SANADA in the penultimate match of the night.

G1 Climax 31: SANADA .vs. EVIL

As you'll see by the betting, both men opened at 17/20 each. However, earlier today, Kambi cut the odds for SANADA as he was lowered into 4/5.

EVIL won as a closing 9/10 underdog.

Kazuchika Okada (14 points) .vs. Jeff Cobb (16 points)
As noted above, there was no official match winner market for the main event. Customers could gamble on Kazuchika Okada or Jeff Cobb as the final two selections in the 'Tournament Winner' market that had been available since early September.

I have created a table showing the odds for the two main eventers from when the market started right up to today. 

The odds for both men that appear in grey are from days when there were other selections available in the market. The prices in light purple are from the period when they were the only two men who could still take the block.

Again - Cobb could win the block by drawing with Okada. That's why this table differs from the other head-to-head tables I've created for the tournament matches.

G1 Climax 31 Betting: Okada .vs. Cobb

Okada ended up winning the match and taking the block with the tiebreaker. As you'll see, he closed as a 1/3 favourite over Cobb's 2/1.

Jeff Cobb's loss means that a proposition market, which asked whether anyone would go undefeated in all of the block matches, will now be settled with 'No' as the winner.

It had short odds going for it starting as a 1/10 favourite. It was down to 1/14 when it was last made available earlier this month. However, there was a time in the mid-to-late September when it had descended to 1/16.

With the need for a tiebreaker, a prop market - which asked if two or more people will have the highest number of points in the block - will settle with 'Yes' as the winning selection.

G1 Climax 31 - Prop Bet

The winning selection started out as a 7/10 favourite over the EVS that was offered for those who thought the block would be clearly won. 

'Yes' was lowered into 4/6 by October 2nd, but returned to its opening price three days later.

There was a tournament proposition market which will also be settled now that A and B Blocks have been completed (if it hasn't been settled already). 

In it, customers were asked whether there would be a three-way tie in either of the blocks. The eventual winner closed as a 4/6 favourite after starting level - at 17/20 each - with 'Yes'.

G1 Climax 31 - Prop Bet

'No' will also be a winning selection in a B Block prop market which asked whether or not any of the matches would have a time limit draw.

G1 Climax 31 - B Block Prop Bet

Coincidentally, it closed at the same prices that were available in the tournament winner market with the winning selection doing so as a closing 1/3 favourite. When the market opening last month, customers would have found the option at 13/20.

There are other tournament proposition and specials markets that we will know the result of even before this year's winner is crowned. I'll leave those until tomorrow's G1 blog post.

Okada Odds-On To Win G1 Climax 31

Kazuchika Okada is now an odds-on favourite to win this year's NJPW G1 Climax.    

Kambi's tournament winner market has recently been republished. Now with the three remaining wrestlers who could be the last man standing when all is said and done on Thursday.

Before A Block's conclusion, which was won by Kota Ibushi, the oddsmakers had Okada as a 23/20 favourite his price has now shortened into 4/6. He'll meet Jeff Cobb tomorrow to see who'll wrestle Ibushi the following day.

Cobb's odds to be this year's victor have increased from 7/2 to 4/1 while the A Block winner remains a second-favourite albeit at a shorter 33/20 from 5/2.

G1 Climax 31: Outright Winner

Okada's odds to win B Block have also lowered. Customers will find him down into 1/3. The previous price was 2/5.

G1 Climax 31 Betting: B Block Winner

A win - or even a draw - for Cobb in tomorrow's meeting will ensure he takes the block and will pay out at 2/1. This is up from the most recent 7/4.

KOTR And Queen's Crown Winner Odds Ahead Of 18/10 WWE Raw

Sky Bet's outright markets for the King of the Ring and Queen's Crown tournaments were suspended at 11PM BST ahead of tonight's semi-final matches.

Betting on the King of the Ring tournament closed with finalist - Finn Balor - a 10/11 favourite.

Just before the market closed, I noticed that Balor had moved up from 5/6 while Xavier Woods lowered from 13/8 into 6/4.

Woods will meet Jinder Mahal (4/1) on tonight's episode of WWE Raw to see who'll compete against Balor on Thursday.

KOTR 2021 Outright Winner Odds

Shayna Baszler's odds to be the Queen's Crown winner remained at 1/2 over the past couple of days. However, the second and third places flipped in the betting.

The change saw finalist - Zelina Vega - move from 11/4 second-favourite out to 4/1 while Doudrop, who will meet the tournament favourite tonight, came in from 4/1 to 11/4.

Queen's Crown 2021 Outright Winner Odds

G1 Climax 31 Betting: Night 17

It is the concluding night for A Block in this year's G1 Climax today.

As has been a regular thing during the tournament, I aim to watch the show live and share the early and closing match winner odds for the bouts on tonight's card.

With this being the closing show for the block, and with four wrestlers still in the mix as it pertains winning the block, a prop market - which was published last month ahead of the tournament - will see 'Yes' graded as the winning pick.

G1 Climax 31 - A Block Prop Bet

The proposition was specific to A Block and asked whether or not there would be at least four wrestlers 'able to win their block' at the start of night 17.

Shingo Takagi, Zack Sabre Junior, Kota Ibushi and KENTA are all still available before the bell has rung for today's contests. Therefore, the 'Yes' option - which started out as a 7/10 favourite last month - is the winner.

I have created a table with all the possible outcomes that are needed for each wrestler to win the block. I am not 100% that I have this right, but here goes:

G1 Climax 31 - A Block Scenarios

Going by those scenarios, it looks like KENTA and Zack Sabre Jr. have a slight advantage over the other two because they have three scenarios whereas Takagi and Ibushi have two each.

Takagi is the person I had backed to win the block when the divisions and matches were announced for the tournament. It does not look good for the champion as he would need to beat Yujiro Takahashi and then hope that Zack Sabre Jr does not beat Tanga Loa as he and ZSJ would be on fourteen points before the main event begins and - with Sabre beating Takagi on night three - Takagi would be eliminated leaving Sabre to hope for a draw or Kota Ibushi win in the last match on today's card.

For Ibushi to have any chance of taking the block, he'll also need Tanga Loa to go over in his meeting with ZSJ as well as being victorious against KENTA in the main event. 

G1 Climax 31 - Night 17

Tomohiro Ishii (10 points) .vs. Toru Yano (8 points)
21/10 underdog - Toru Yano - beat Tomohiro Ishii (8/25) in the opening tournament match of the night.

The decision means that both men have finished the tournament with ten points each.
G1 Climax 31 - Night 17

Now it's the business end of the block..

Shingo Takagi (12 points) .vs. Yujiro Takahashi (4 points)
Going by the betting, the punters have sided with Takagi to win against Yujiro Takahashi. His price has declined from an opening 1/4 right down to 1/8 while Takahashi has risen from 5/2 to 4/1.

The match ended in a double count-out. Therefore, both men will receive one point each and move Shingo to thirteen points. However, he'll be eliminated if ZSJ goes over in the next match.

Shingo Takagi may still be in play, but so a prop market which asked whether or not there would be a draw in A Block.

It is still unsettled - for now - because the rule of the market asked whether or not there would be at least one match that has a result of a draw via a 'time limit draw'. Takagi versus Takahashi going to a count-out draw means that this is not over. Yet. If neither of the next two matches end in a draw, the winning selection will be 'No'.

Zack Sabre Jr. (12 points) .vs. Tanga Loa (4 points)
Tanga Loa beat Zack Sabre Jr. to end Sabre's tournament on twelve points.

Going in, despite being the underdog,  the betting was on the side of Loa because his price fell from 19/10 into 6/4 yesterday and was then cut into EVS this morning.

Sabre's role as a favourite went up to 7/10 from 7/20 with the interest in Loa.

Kota Ibushi (12 points) .vs. KENTA (12 points)
Kota Ibushi won the main event to get to fourteen points and ultimately win the block.

He had entered the match as an 8/13 favourite to KENTA's 23/20.

Ibushi finishes as the only person at the top of the block. As a result, this means a proposition market - which asked whether there would be a 'Tie-Break Needed' to settle the block victor - will be settled in favour of 'No'.

The winning selection had drifted out from 5/4 right through to 2/1 during its existence. It was last available eleven days ago. 

Kambi's A Block Winner market will also be settled now with Ibushi as the winning selection.

G1 Climax 31 Betting: A Block Winner Result

The eventual winner opened as a 5/2 second-favourite when the market was initially priced up. The top price you could have found him at was 3/1. This would have been available at numerous points during the tournament especially near its start following Ibushi's upset loss to Yujiro Takahashi on night one.

Ibushi was an 8/5 favourite when the market was last adjusted a couple of days ago. He remained at that price until betting on the A Block winner was suspended for its final time ahead of today's event.

I aim to be back for B Block's final night in a couple of days.

Sky Bet's KOTR And Queen's Crown Odds For October 16

The oddsmakers from Sky Bet have republished their tournament winner markets for the King of the Ring and Queen's Crown.

On last night's Smackdown, Finn Balor qualified for the final with a win over Sami Zayn. His price as a favourite has now dipped into 10/11 from 11/10.

Balor's opponent will be determined on Monday night when Xavier Woods and Jinder Mahal meet in the second semi-final match of the tourney.

Woods is a 13/8 second-favourite to be crowned king. He was most previously 15/8. Mahal - on the other hand - has slid into 4/1 from 9/2.

King of the Ring 2021 Winner Market

Shayna Baszler remains Sky Bet's favourite to win the Queen's Crown. Her odds have moved in from 8/11 to 1/2. Before last night, Carmella was a second-favourite. However - now that she has been eliminated, after losing to Zelina Vega - Vega has moved into second at odds of 10/3. This is down from 6/1.

Zelina Vega's opponent will be known by the conclusion of Monday's Raw. Shayna Baszler's semi-final opponent - Doudrop - has lowered from 9/2 into 4/1 following all the adjustments that have been made now that Carmella is out of the running.

Queen's Crown 2021 Betting Odds

As far as my betting has gone - I have lost on a couple already (Carmella and Natalya), but still have Zelina Vega (6/1) and have just had a small gamble on Doudrop just in case there is a follow-up to last night's Smackdown which saw Shayna Baszler and Sonya Deville surprise, and ultimately beat, Naomi in a 2-on-1 match. 

I could see Naomi avenging Friday's result by messing things up for Baszler as she meets Doudrop on Monday night sending Doudrop to the final.

G1 Climax 31 Odds Update For October 16

The NJPW G1 Climax 31 betting markets, that have been available for the tournament from Kambi, were republished today.

Now that the tournament is headed toward its final week, a lot of obsolete selections have been wiped from the markets while those still in play have been changed.

A Block is the division which has the most possible outcomes for potential winner. Going into its final night, Zack Sabre Jr, Shingo Takagi and the two main eventers: Kota Ibushi and KENTA, are still alive in the standings. 

Ibushi's price as favourite has now lowered into 8/5. His night 17 opponent - KENTA - is in second at odds of 21/10 - down from 3/1. They're followed by Zack Sabre Jr. - who has risen from 2/1 to 21/10 - and Shingo Takagi, who's drifted from 2/1 to 7/2.

G1 Climax 31 - A Block Winner Odds

Markets for the block's last set of matches have also been released. Those contests will take place on Monday, The prices, as of this afternoon, are:

Night 17 (A Block)
Tomohiro Ishii 8/25
Toru Yano 21/10

Shingo Takagi 1/4
Yujiro Takahashi 5/2

Zack Sabre Jr. 7/20
Tanga Loa 19/10

Kota Ibushi 8/13 
KENTA 23/20

The bookmakers have published match winner markets for Wednesday's clashes between those in B Block. However, they have not installed match winner odds for the main event between Kazuchika Okada and Jeff Cobb.

I surmise the reason why there is no match winner market for Okada .vs. Cobb is because it'll be the block decider. Therefore, the B Block outright winner market will technically serve as one although - in a regular match market - a draw would result in a void bet. If a draw were to occur in Okada versus Cobb, Cobb will be declared the B Block winner as he will enter the match with two points more than Okada.

All of the selections, apart from one - Kazuchika Okada .vs. Shingo Takagi, have shortened since the market was last made available to gamblers.

The favourite - which would mean Ibushi takes A Block and Okada wins B Block - is now 5/2. It has reduced from 7/2.

'Okada .vs. KENTA' - a selection I have pointed out numerous times because it has been on a descent since September 20th - is now a 13/4 joint-second favourite after moving in from its previous price of 11/2.
