Is there a market to bet on Wresting and where
Wrestling is on the rise these days and its popularity is growing fast. There are more wrestling events than there used to be and a larger number of people is watching wrestling, both live and on TV. Most bookmakers nowadays include wrestling as one of the sports on which it is possible to bet. A lot of wrestling fans use this opportunity and some of them have managed to earn quite hefty amounts of money. And it is even possible to place a bet on your mobile phone, just like it is possible to play casino games on it. And that is hardly surprising, as mobile casinos are great fun. There are usually more than few WWE network events, as well as pay-per-view events in the course of one year and as soon as the participants’ names are published and confirmed, bookmakers offer betting markets.
Betting on the Royal Rumble
Basically, every popular and renowned sports betting website offers wrestling betting. WWE Royal Rumble is one of the most popular wrestling events. It is possible to bet on the Royal Rumble in mid-year even though the event takes place in January. The 2016 Royal Rumble attracted a lot of audience and there were a lot of reactions regarding it, so it is certain that the 2017 will draw as much attention, if not more.
It is possible to place bet on the winner of the next Royal Rumble. Brock Lesnar definitely has momentum on his side and he is one of the top favourites for winning the Royal Rumble. The odds for him winning are set at 4/1. Seth Rollins is right up there with him as the odds for this wrestler are the same. Next, we have Finn Balor, Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns. The odds for each of these wrestlers are 6/1 at most bookies, which means we have five people who have pretty realistic chances of claiming the trophy.
In wrestling like in all other sports there are surprises and upsets, therefore it wouldn’t be too surprising if someone who is not considered to be among the top 5 wrestlers manages to win. The odds for AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose are set at 10/1 at some websites, but if you think that one of them has a chance of winning you should definitely ‘shop’ for a better quote, as some bookies offer odds as high as 18/1. Bray Wyatt, John Cena, Apollo Crews and Randy Orton also have odds that go in the range between 10/1 and 20/1. The odds for Cesaro at different bookmakers vary significantly as some offer odds that are below 20/1, for example 17/1, but at other sites he is rated at a staggering 33/1.
The less chances a wrestler is thought to have, the bigger the variation in the odds. That is why, if you plan on betting on one of the underdogs, you should browse all betting websites carefully and see which one offers the best odds. It is even better if you could find a bookmaker that also offers a nice bonus.
Betting on the Summerslam
The Summerslam is ahead of us and we’ve already mentioned Brock Lesnar. He is considered a favourite to win the fight against Randy Orton. His odds are only 1/3, which means that you’ll need to bet at least 300 if you want to win 100. If you think that Orton might surprise Lesnar, than you could get 200 with a 100 bet. Finn Balor and Seth Rollins will also meet at the Summerslam and the odds for Rollins are 4/5, whereas the odds for Balor are 10/11, which means that these two fighters are quite evenly matched, or at least that’s what the bookies think.
