Could you imagine LeBron James pushing the fastbreak only to be stopped by Kobe Bryant, climbing out of the stands to club him with a steel chair?
While sports fans don’t have to worry about that happening to their NBA wagers, a similar scenario could burn bettors at Wrestlemania XXVII on April 3.
Online sportsbook 5Dimes.com
is offering bets on the WWE’s premier event, posting odds on all the major matches that highlight next Sunday’s card.
Matches available for wagering include the world heavyweight championship bout between Edge (+175) and Alberto Del Rio (-245), the WWE championship match between The Miz (+550) and John Cena (-1,050), and The Undertaker’s (-2,600) battle with Triple H (+1,200), trying to extend his unbeaten streak at Wrestlemania to 19-0.
“I'd have to guess six years or so,” 5Dimes general manager Tony Williams told Covers.com when asked how long the book has been posting odds on Wrestlemania. “In the beginning, we'd post one or two prices on the main event. Now we cover just about the entire card.”
5Dimes.com grades results on what the ring announcer states at the end of each match, either by way of pinfall, submission, count-out or disqualification.
Other matches available for wagering are:
