Where To Bet Pro Wrestling Online

Graeme

Yes – you can bet WWE. Yes – you can bet pro wrestling.

It’s a question I often get and I mean it makes sense. Wrestling is pre-determined. How exactly can sportsbooks offer pro wrestling betting online? Let’s quickly answer the common questions.

How can sportsbooks offer betting on results that are pre-determined? Well even though it is pre-determined it doesn’t mean everyone knows the results. And actually if you look through the history of pro wrestling betting, you’ll see lots of upsets. Just a random one but in 2013 there were two massive ones at +600 odds. Team Hell No beating the Rhodes Scholars at the Royal Rumble and then the month after with The Shield beating the team of Cena/Ryback/Sheamus at Elimination Chamber. There is rarely a pay per view where there isn’t an upset based on the odds.

Can’t Vince McMahon just bet himself? Sure, as could WWE employees. Sportsbooks however limit the amount that people can bet. Most sportsbooks will have a rule of being able to risk a maximum of $50 for example. As it is some of the people “in the know” do bet – but the results aren’t usually known until the day of the show. If you pay attention to the odds you’ll see that – Kevin Owens will go from a -150 favourite to a -2500 favourite. That’s an indication that the “smart money” is coming in.

On top of all that, sportsbooks use pro wrestling primarily as a loss leader – even though from the sportsbooks I’ve talked to, they all make money from pro wrestling bettors. Basically they use it as something different to “get you in the door” so to speak.

Where To Bet Pro Wrestling Online:

America: The best option for Americans by far is 5Dimes Sportsbook. These guys have been offering pro wrestling betting since the very beginning. They were the first online sportsbook to do it and they have the most options for American gamblers. Actually there are very few online sportsbooks that accept Americans AND offer pro wrestling and the ones that do usually save it for big events such as Wrestlemania.

Everywhere Else: I 100% recommend 888. They not only offer betting for every PPV however they offer various prop bets and futures. They offer a wide variety of pro wrestling betting and also offer a wide variety of props. They are without a doubt the best option for betting pro wrestling.

Promotion/League Specific Betting Guides:

WWE: WWE is the promotion that you will see the majority of betting options in. It’s rare to find other promotions where you can place bets on. In this section of the site I go into detail about WWE and all of the various pay per views as well and where to bet them, as well as strategies to use.

How to Bet Pro Wrestling

5Dimes Sportsbook: Visit their website and register / log in. You will be within the “Bet the Board” section which lists the sports and then the categories. On the very right under “Other Sports” you will see “Pro Wrestling” listed if there is an upcoming show. You checkmark that then click “Continue” and you will see all the odds for the upcoming show.

888: It’s easiest to just search for “Wrestling” and that will list all of the bets available. It will be broken into sections with one section for WWE Props/Futures and another for upcoming PPVs and all of the bets available.

What Wrestling Bets /Props Are There?

First the most obvious one – you can bet on who will win a match. Nice and simple. Even if it is a triple threat or a Royal Rumble. You can also usually bet “the field”. So say it is Charlotte vs Ronda Rousey vs Becky Lynch. You don’t think Charlotte will win but you don’t know if Becky or Ronda will take it. You can bet “The Field” against Charlotte meaning as long as Becky or Ronda win you’re good.

There will be prop bets as well based on the WWE Championship. So if Brock Lesnar is the Universal Champion you’ll be able to bet when he loses it – “before Royal Rumble” or “before Wrestlemania” etc. You can also bet who will be the next to win the championship.

Whenever WWE does a superstar shake-up and advertise it in advance we’ve been able to bet on who will move to RAW and who will move to Smackdown as well.

Common Pro Wrestling Betting Questions:

Can I get my account banned for betting and being right all the time?

No. Sportsbooks know that there are a lot of people who can figure out pro wrestling that is why they limit your bets. However don’t worry even though you may think you know – pro wrestling is a lot harder to figure out and bet on. As someone who has been betting it since 2013 trust me – there are a lot of surprises.

Pro Wrestling Betting Strategy:

The biggest thing with pro wrestling is to think about longer term plans. Not that WWE always follow through with it and wins and losses obviously don’t matter as much as they should – but get in the mindset of the booking team and what is theoretically coming out afterwards. As while plans change, WWE generally have short term plans at least.
