Sports betting giant Kambi has come up with 12 ratings-related odds for next week’s big week as Smackdown moves to FOX and AEW and NXT go head-to-head for the first-time ever on cable television.
Among the odds available there are audience totals for all wrestling shows, Dynamite to have more viewers than Raw, Dynamite to have more viewers than NXT, Smackdown to have more viewers than Raw, AEW, and NXT, and more.
Kambi placed odds of 17/20 of Raw, Smackdown, NXT, and AEW to have a combined audience of over 8 million next week. It’s a long shot as Raw usually draws in the lower 2 million mark and NXT and AEW might get over a million each. That leaves Smackdown on FOX needing over 4 million viewers on its debut night on FOX.
AEW Dynamite having more viewers than Raw is set to 9/2, another hard task but doable due to the curiosity factor. Those odds are the underdog as Raw has 1/10 odds of beating AEW next week. AEW Dynamite is the favorite though of beating NXT in the ratings next week, with odds of 7/10.
Smackdown beating all combined wrestling shows has odds of 2/1, a possible reality considering all the hype of moving to FOX. But the odds are in favor of no, with 1/3 odds set on Smackdown failing in that test.
AEW Dynamite has 5/4 odds of doing more than 1.25 million viewers for its debut episode and 11/20 odds of doing less than that.
Raw is at 19/20 for doing more than 2.4 million viewers for its new-look season premiere while Smackdown is 3/4 to do 3.5 million viewers or more for its FOX debut. NXT is 11/20 for over a million viewers in its first head-to-head show against AEW.
