PRIME Bettors Guide, ReVival 11
Hayes Hanlon (-110) vs Cancer Jiles (+110)
The premier betting event of the evening. Cancer Jiles is a bettor’s favorite, so expect the line to move into his favor as the week progresses. Hayes Hanlon is coming off a loss at GAN but is a strong contender and comes out as the favorite in this matchup. Hayes is stepping up into a new level of competition, though, so we will see how this one plays out with relatively even odds. If you want to make $100 betting on Hanlon, you’ll need to risk $110, while with Jiles a $100 bet brings home a $110 payday. Smart money is going to be staying away from this action.
FLAMBERGE (-110) vs Garbage Bag Johnny (+120)
To the surprise of many, FLAMBERGE is the early favorite. But we like those odds, and plan to take some money away from the MGM by betting on a former Dual Halo winner in Garbage Bag Johnny. FLAMBERGE has been a bright up and comer, but may be out of his depth, and up against an unusual style against the experienced GBJ. The oddsmakers favor the much more traditional FLAMBERGE, but if Henri Lavigne is staying away from FLAMBO’s corner, we’re putting money on Johnny.
Julian Bathory (-145) vs Mitchell Quinlan (+165)
What a bad draw for PRIME newcomer Mitchell Quinlan. He’s going to get thrown into the fire against Julian Bathory, who has something to prove coming off his time limit draw at GAN against Cancer Jiles. While Mitchell Quinlan is a veteran in the squared circle, and spent time with many of these same wrestlers in SCCW and the UTA over the years, he hasn’t seen anything like Bathory in a long time. Quinlan’s the underdog, but predicted to be plenty game in this matchup. STAY AWAY. If Quinlan gets off to a fast start, Bathory could get overwhelmed by the old vet, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
SGRNR (-120) vs Dangerous Mix (+130)
Solid Gold Rock n Roll are becoming a force in the tag team division. They recently took down Masters of the Multiverse B-Team who were able to frustrate Dangerous Mix. Solid Gold Rock n Roll look capable of similar antics that could frustrate the more dangerous man on the team: Mushigahara. With the uncertainty of this one, we’d once again suggest staying away. Mushi and David Fox could pull out an upset here, or Boots and Boogie could be boogieing backstage after this one. Consider it a toss up.
Balaam (-115) vs Jacob Mephisto (+135)
Balaam had a tough outing at Great American Nightmare, and we find him paired up against Jacob Mephisto in a big battle. Mephisto is one of the larger men on the PRIME roster, and physically might be able to handle Balaam’s offense better than any competitor to date. We still have the monster picked to win and that’s all because of the experience in his corner. We like Balaam and Hoyt to take a win off of Mephisto, but this one could also be too close to call.
Pete Whealdon (+200) vs Larry Tact (+220) vs Tony Gamble (+130)
We normally don’t advocate betting on three way matches, but this week some money could be made on this one. Larry Tact has been improving week after week, and being able to almost double your money in one swoop, we’re not against laying some bets on Tact. The early favorite at the window is returning Hall of Famer Tony Gamble, but with ten years outside of the ring that could be a trap. Pick your winner from Whealdon or Tact and look for the home run.
PRIME Pick of The Week: Larry Tact has been steadily improving and getting comfortable in PRIME. A huge payday is on the line if you put your money on Larry Tact. This bet is not a lock, but has a huge ceiling for reward. Look for Larry to get off the slide, and generate some positive momentum with Tony Gamble knocking off the ring rust, and Pete Whealdon still stepping up the competition level.
