How to Place a Wrestling Bet – Useful Tips

When it comes to betting, these days you can bet on virtually anything. From the weather, to the winner of the latest reality TV snore-fest, it seems as if nothing is off limits. What many people are shocked to find out, though, is that you can actually place a bet on pro wrestling. What we’re about to tell you next may come as a bit of a shock, but in actual fact, pro wrestling is pre-determined. We won’t call it fake because the stunts, moves, and action that you see is real. What isn’t real is the storylines, as the winner of each match is chosen well in advance. So how can you place a bet on something that is pre-determined? Well, quite easily. Here’s a look at a few tips on how to place a wrestling bet.

Which wrestling company to bet on

Pro wrestling these days is worth billions of dollars. A few years ago, once they’d purchased their competition in the form of WCW and ECW, the then WWF (now known as the WWE) was the only pro wrestling company on the map. They had no real competition. Years later, thanks to falling share prices, wrestlers unhappy with how they were being used on TV, and a growing interest in Indy promotions, companies such as New Japan Pro Wrestling, and Ring of Honour, started to gain momentum. Now, though, the WWE’s main competition is Tony Khan’s AEW, or All Elite Wrestling. In terms of which company to bet on, the big bucks are still with the WWE, but AEW is definitely one to watch.

What to bet on?

In the WWE, each month they hold at least one pay per view event. The biggest PPV of them all is Wrestlemania, which attracts millions of viewers all over the globe. The bookies like Findbettingsites see an influx of WWE bets being placed during Wrestlemania season, which runs from Jan after the Royal Rumble, up until late March/early April, when Wrestlemania is held. You can, though, bet on all manner of things in the WWE, including:

Winners and losers – One of the simplest straight bets when it comes to placing a wrestling bet, is betting on who you think will win or lose a match, or tournament. You will never get very good odds here, because sometimes the outcome is obvious. If for example a superstar like John Cena was wrestling a jobber from the indies, the smart money would be on Cena to win. Even more competitive matches don’t offer great odds because usually there’s just a 1 in 2 chance of winning.

Ring time bets – Another fun wrestling bet you can place is known as a ‘ring time bet’. If for example, a multi-wrestler event such as the Royal Rumble is held, you can bet on which wrestler you think will last the longest.

Appearance bets – Occasionally, the WWE brings back some of the legends such as Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock. You can place bets on whether a legend will make an appearance at a PPV. At this year’s Royal Rumble for example, WWE legend Edge came out of retirement after 9 years and made a surprise appearance at the event. Some people will have made decent money on Edge, because his in-ring return was kept a surprise, as people believed that he would never wrestle again.
