WWE King And Queen Of The Ring '24 Odds For Saturday Morning

I have just visited BetOnline's WWE King and Queen of the Ring 2024 markets ahead of today's show to make note of the current odds for this catch up post. As of the time of writing, the sportsbook is offering betting on only three of the matches schedule for this afternoon's event. Therefore, I'll run through those matches and then take a look at what is on offer - from European firms - for the rest of the card.

Starting in order of how the matches appear on the BetOnline website, we have..

Women's World Championship
I first began following the betting for Becky Lynch's title defence against Liv Morgan on May 21st. At that time, BetOnline had the titleholder as a -175 favourite to Morgan's +135.

By the following evening, Lynch's price had dropped into -225 while the bookie's placed the challenger's odds up to +160.

Interestingly, when I noticed the next change in the market, both selections' odds have improved with Becky Lynch up to -215 and Morgan then at +165. However, since then, all of the price drops have sided with Morgan who currently sits at +100 while Becky Lynch, despite still being classed as the betting favourite, has drifted up to -140.

WWE Undisputed Championship

Cody Rhodes was a -2,500 favourite to successfully retain the WWE Undisputed Championship against Logan Paul (+800) when I first began to follow the market on May 21st. 

The following day, Rhodes' price had been slashed into -5,000 while Logan Paul's price had been pushed up to +1,200.

And that's where the market still is as of 9:30am bst TODAY.

WWE Intercontinental Championship
The market for the triple threat match, which will see Sami Zayn defend the IC Strap against Chad Gable and Bronson Reed, has seen the champion backed in the earlier stages while, in the latter ones, the price for a Reed win has declined.

As you can see, in the table above, Zayn started out at -250 but is now at -500. Reed, as the longshot, started out at +1,200 but was moved to +2,500 the following day. The price has since fallen into +1,800.

Chad Gable's odds have jumped out from +175 to +310 in this period.

As mentioned in the opening, the BetOnline Sportsbook does not currently have markets for the other bouts on the card. Companies like Paddy Power and Sky Bet have been taking wagers since midweek for most of them.

Queen of the Ring Final
Ahead of last night's Queen of the Ring semi-final between Bianca Belair and Nia Jax, the firms were offering 'Bianca Belair or Nia Jax' as a selection alongside one for Lyra Valkyria.

Going by the wagering, it appears both firms have seen interest in a win by Valkyria.

In my opinion, it makes sense for someone with the name of Valkyria to become a 'Queen'. Whether that's WWE's mindset is another thing entirely.

King of the Ring Final
Just like with the Queen of the Ring finals, the sportsbooks offered 'Randy Orton or Tama Tonga' as selections ahead of their semi-final last night. Now that Orton has been determined as Smackdown's representative in the final, the markets now obviously have him as the sole selection.

Interestingly, you can see that there odds for Randy Orton recently shortened with Paddy Power while Gunther's was lowered with Sky Bet.

With WWE revealing the winners of both tournaments will secure title shots at SummerSlam, I believe the both finals are kind of opened up because we've seen Nia Jax threatening Bayley, Lyra Valkyria having issues with both Becky Lynch and Liv Morgan.

Then, on last night's Smackdown, we saw Cody Rhodes and Randy Orton shake hands in a backstage segment. Then we also have Gunther heading to Berlin in the PLE following SummerSlam so a case could be made for all finalists.

To close, a Women's Tag Team Championship match was also set up yesterday. As of right now, Paddy Power is offering Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill as heavy 1/25 faves over Indi Hartwell and Candice LeRae (7/1).
