Current WWE Prop Bets Hint at Future Plans?

Some prop bets were released on Skybet that could point to some very interesting directions for WWE over the next few months. For those unfamiliar with a prop bet,  a “proposition bet”  is a bet made regarding the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event not directly affecting the game’s final outcome. For example, “How long will AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura last?” at WWE Money in the Bank was a prop bet individuals could have placed a wager on last Sunday. It doesn’t matter who wins the match, just that it goes a certain length of time.

In this article, we will look at some prop bets and some futures bets. A future bet is simply a wager where the outcome will not be decided until the distant future. Many bettors get a lot of entertainment value out of them because they can remain active for months.

Two things before we get into some recent prop bets: (1) Betting odds for WWE represent possible spoilers. While it is not a certainty, they are right more often than not. So if you don’t want to be spoiled, stop reading now! (2) A quick reminder of how American betting odds work in case you are used to another format:

A “favorite” is given a negative number. This is the amount of money that needs to be placed on that competitor to win $100. For example, if someone is a -300 favorite, you need to bet $300 to potentially win $100. If you win the bet, you get $400 back (your original $300 and your $100 profit). If you lose the bet, you lose your $300. -300 = 1/3 in fractional odds.

An “underdog” is given a positive number. This is the amount of money you will WIN so long as you bet $100. For example, if someone is a +450 underdog, you need to bet $100 to potentially win $450. If you win the bet, you get $550 back (your original $100 and your $450 profit). If you lose the bet, you lose your $100. +450 = 9/2 in fractional odds.
