Early betting odds for this Sunday’s WWE Backlash pay-per-view event have been set by Irish sports book Paddy Power. As of this writing, the projected winners would be Randy Orton, The Usos, AJ Styles, the team of Naomi, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch, Luke Harper, Baron Corbin and Shinsuke Nakamura. Thanks to betwrestling.com for sending us the following:
So far the only changes since these odds have been posted were the odds going slightly more in favor of Nakamura and slightly in the direction of Erick Rowan, even though Harper is still very favored in that match. More line moves are expected and these tend to be dramatic once the odds hit the global markets as they will later this week.
Even though AJ Styles is projected to beat Kevin Owens for the United States Championship, this does not necessarily mean he will walk out champion as a count out or DQ is possible.
These are fractional odds, meaning betting the number on the right of the forward slash would potentially win the number on the right. So if the right number is greater than the left number this indicated the favorite to win and vice versa.
WWE Championship: Randy Orton (c) 1/6 vs Jinder Mahal 7/2
United States Championship: Kevin Owens (c) (evens) vs AJ Styles 8/11
Sami Zayn 5/4 vs Baron Corbin 5/4
Shinsuke Nakamura 2/9 vs Dolph Ziggler 11/4
