There's all the Mania 30 betting odds and options thus far for the blog otters to discuss
Long time reader,
There is a sports betting company in Australia offering odds on Wrestlemania (sportsbet.com.au), just thought I'd send them along for some interesting discussion on the blog.
Most are pretty obvious, but there are a few surprises about how big a margin they're paying on some matches, in particular Swagger v Del Rio and Ryback v Mark Henry. They're also basically giving Rock no chance.
Tons of Fun & Funkadactyls ($1.30) v Teams Rhodes Scholars & Bella Twins ($3.10)
Jack Swagger ($3.40) v Alberto Del Rio ($1.25)
The Undertaker ($1.06) v CM Punk ($7.00)
Triple H ($1.25) v Brock Lesnar ($3.40)
John Cena ($1.11) v The Rock ($5.50)
Ryback ($1.14) v Mark Henry ($4.33)
Dolph Ziggler & Big E Langston ($2.30) v Team Hell No ($1.53)
Fandango ($1.25) v Chris Jericho ($3.40)
I dunno about those Jericho odds, actually. That's pretty long for a match where they could switch it up just to fuck with people. I'd give Punk even longer odds, though.
You can't possibly go wrong betting on a predetermined sport!
Have you any thoughts on the uk bookmaker odds (as shown in link) for the matches at wrestlemania, i know you have spoken before about the money made by WWE employees when Chris Jericho became undisputed champion; with the only possible value bet being Triple H at 13/2 to beat the Undertaker – is there any chance of this happening? or is there anything other match worth considering?
Match results can be accumlated together – Maybe all the faces to go over as you always hope for. Works out about 6/1 if you count John Cena as the good guy, 7/1 if you use the Rock instead – along with Sheamus, Randy Orton, Undertaker, Big Show and CMPunk.
People who bet on pro wrestling get what they deserve, as do the people who TAKE bets on pro wrestling.
That being said, I have no idea how to interpret any of that stuff. But no, there’s no chance of HHH beating Undertaker.
