How Did The Addition of Kurt Angle and AJ Styles Change WWE TLC Odds?
With illness striking the WWE roster leading to major changes in key matches for TLC on the WWE Network, sportsbooks have scrambled to get new odds out to reflect the shuffling. Kurt Angle replacing Roman Reigns in the 3 on 5 TLC match still has the 3 man team as the favorite, but less so than when Roman was in the match. Yesterday The Shield was favored at -530, but now the new team is only at -380. To put this in perspective, Asuka, who was favored at an impressive -1500 is now even more heavily favored at -2750.
Bray Wyatt has been replaced by AJ Styles against Finn Balor, and the change of opponent didn’t effect the odds very much. Before the change Finn was favored at -215 and this dropped marginally to -210. The only other shift worth noting is that the team of Cedric Alexander and Rich Swann are now favored in their match against Jack Gallagher and The Brian Kendrick. This match was very close to begin with and now both are listed as underdogs, which is not uncommon when the sportsbooks can’t call it, so right now it’s a “pick em’”.
