If you're not familiar with how betting lines work, basically the higher the - the more favored a wrestler is. That means you have to bet that much in order to win $100. So if you wanted to bet HHH, you could bet $130 to win $100, for Lesnar you'd bet $110 to win $100. If it's plus, that means if you bet $100 you'd get that price back plus your original bet. So if you bet $100 on Del Rio you'd get $225 + your original bet, or $325 total.
Earlier this week Brock was the heavy favorite, and I think the line has adjusted as many believe this will be his final show. Seems reasonable, but I wouldnt bank on either. I think the line is fine as it is.
I actually really like Cena/Show at +150. I do agree Punk should be the slight favorite, but I think you get good value on this one particularly with Cena. I know it seems like they want to set up Rock vs Punk for the Rumble, but there's a lot of time between now and January for that to still happen even if Punk loses.
The Sheamus/Del Rio odds are dead on as Sheamus is on a roll and it's hard to picture Del Rio stopping it at this moment. Being the gambler that I am, +225 seems tempting though, but underdogs always are....
What do you think of these odds? Agree/Disagree?

Odds have been updated and they added nearly the full card :-o
Lesnar -350 (wow)
Del Rio +400
Daniel Bryan -310
Well, I love almost all the dogs here, in particular PTP and Jericho. I've been feeling it's time to remove the straps from Truth and Kofi for ages, and +165 seems good value there.
I also like Jericho to pick up this victory because Ziggler already has MITB, he doesnt need it. I can understand some thinking Jericho might lose since he's rumored to be taking another break soon though
Mysterio +300 just seems like crazy value to me, not so much because I think he'll win the title, but I could see Miz getting himself DQd or Counted Out just to keep the feud going a little.
Bryan has been on a losing streak and I could easily see that continuing here as well, so +230 is good value on that to me also.
Shocked at the Lesnar price as well, as they could have him destroy HHH but still lose and not really care like they did against Cena.
I do think Punk retains, but +260 is decent value for him possibly losing to Cena and getting the belt back in a rematch or something shortly after.
The only one I'd be very reluctant to try is Del Rio at +400, but at those odds even that is tempting.
Basically, Summerslam will be all chalk on Sunday night. lol
