Straight Wagers

Waging money on a wrestling match is simple. Most bookmakers use straight wagers if they want to lay a bet for a wrestling match. A straight wager is placing a bet on the wrestler that the better believes will win the event. Many of these straight wagers can be done with a regular season match, a tournament, or a championship title. These straight wagers list the predicted odds of each wrestler, with the favorite indicated with the minus (-) sign and the rest of the entertainers indicated with a plus (+) sign.

Proposition Bets

Another popular and fun bet to make in wrestling is a proposition bet. This form of bet is better referred to as a prop bet. A prop bet is placed on whether some sort of action or event will occur during the match. Common prop bets made in wrestling may include a bet on if the winner of a match is a wrestler that has never won before, and which wrestler will spend the longest time in the ring during a match before the bell is rung. Some bettors like to place prop bets on actions that have no relevance to the match itself. For example, some may place a prop bet on which wrestler is the first to enter the arena.

World Wrestling Entertainment, WWE, is the most well-regarded professional wrestling company. They host four major events, and these four events garner the most attention to the bettors. These four events are the WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Survivor Series, and the Royal Rumble. All of these events are considered pay-per-view. This means that these events are not broadcasted on general television channels and individuals must pay an additional amount to view the entertaining match. WrestleMainia is WWE's biggest pay-per-view event, beginning in April. Bettors can bet on any of these events!
