As one can easily expect, Roman Reigns is the overwhelming favorite to leave the biggest WrestleMania ever with the World Heavyweight Championship this Sunday. Such sentiment is echoed among all bookies and has been constant since match announcement. At time of press Reigns is currently quoted at 1/9 to become a 3 time Heavyweight champion against Triple H’s 17/4 odds.
In the No Holds Barred street fight, Brock Lesnar is also an overwhelming 1/5 favorite to beat Dean Ambrose (odds 3/1). For those wanting a more speculative punt, they can find odds of 1/2 for Lesnar transforming Dallas into Suplex City by delivering 9 or more suplexes to Ambrose (7/5 says it’s 8 or less suplexes). Ambrose suffering 3 or more F5s is quoted at 6/5. Meanwhile, in the expected main event, the odds see-sawed over the whole weekend. The Undertaker is currently a 1/2 favorite to beat Shane McMahon in Hell in a Cell. Shane on his side can be backed at 6/5 to either jump or be thrown from the top of the cell.
In the male tag matches, The Usos are a very strong 1/20 to beat the Dudleyz (odds 7/1). New Day are slight outsiders at evens odds to get the better of the League of Nations (odds 18/25). 888sport is also offering 6/4 odds The Rock to either be added to the match line-up or else physically interfere during said match.
As for the Divas championship, the 1/2 odds for Charlotte point to the current champion retaining. Kalisto is also expected to retain (odds 1/4) against Ryback in the US title match while a champion whose reign is considered in jeopardy by the bookers is Kevin Owens’ Intercontinental Championship. In what most people might consider a surprise, Zack Ryder is a 5/4 co-favorite with Owens to win the ladder match while Sami Zayn can be backed at 4/1.
The remaining two matches have had their odds fluctuating heavily in the last 24 hours. In the last hours, AJ Styles became a 1/2 favorite against Chris Jericho’s current 7/5 odds, thus reversing the trend of Y2J being the a heavy favorite for the most of the last 24 hours. And finally, the Total Divas have now settled as 2/13 favorites against Bad and Blonde’s 7/2 odds. This match must also have attracted some heavy betting interest since yesterday it switched favorites three times.
As far as appearance bets are concerned, presidential candidate and WWE Hall of Famer Donald Trump is currently listed at 10/1 to be seen at the Cowboys stadium. Other appearance odds include Floyd Mayweather (8/1), Ronda Rousey (6/4) and CM Punk (20/1).
