Shocking Odds Shift
A major change has in the Seth Rollins vs Bray Wyatt match at tonight’s Great Balls of Fire PPV(Watch by getting your a free month of the WWE Network). Yesterday Rollins was a -750 favorite and now is an underdog at +535. Bray Wyatt is now favored at -1350. Other than this, definite favorites in the global market have now held on since it was reported Friday that the smart money odds had apparently been in earlier than usually.
Were the smart odds wrong? Was a last minute booking change? Smart money odds have the history of emerging after they’ve hit the global market, but the major shift took place when the odds were only offered in the European market. Rollins vs Wyatt is definitely an outcome that is up in the air because of this.
Huge Favorites in Top Matches
The Global markets had been set on Saturday and they virtually identical to the European odds and the odds widened for the runaway favorites in every match. Brock Lesnar(-2000) is still the heaviest favorite of every performed with listed odds. Someone could win money on Brock Lesnar, but would have to risk $2000 to win only $100. Lesnar’s challenger to his Universal Championship, Samoa Joe(+1000), would be pulling off a huge upset if he manages to beat Brock, even by DQ or Count Out.
The Ambulance match with Braun Strowman(-1320) vs Roman Reigns(+650) still has Braun as the favorite and it’s worth mentioning that the early odds saw Reigns as the projected winner. This complete flip makes me wonder if Roman’s title opportunity at Summerslam is in jeopordy because he would need to remain a strong #1 contender to presumably Lesnar. Defeating Strowman in the Ambulance Match would more than accomplish this.
In other matches:
Big Cass(-1580) is heavily favored to defeat his long time but now former friend tag team partner Enzo Amore (+700).
The Miz(-1425) is expected to retain his Intercontinental Championship against Dean Ambrose(+625)
Tag Team Champions Cesaro & Sheamus(-1275) are projected to retain against The Hardy Boyz(+625) in a 30 minute Iron Man match.
Another champion, Alexa Bliss(-1050) is expected to hang onto the Raw Women’s Championship when Bliss defends against Sasha Banks(+535). Expect Bliss to move on to Nia Jax at Summerslam.
The Cruiserweight Championship match between Neville and Akira Tozawa has no odds as of press time.
