Bet Wrestling has posted early betting odds for this Sunday’s WWE pay per view, Backlash. Compared to most other WWE events, the betting odds are rather even at this point. This may reflect a) most of the finishes are not known by those within the company, b) public perception is rather split on most matches or c) a little of both a) and b). Smart money probably won’t come in until the day of the show.
The only prohibitive favorites on the card as of now are Randy Orton in the WWE Title Match and Shinsuke Nakamura, neither of which are all that surprising. It’s highly doubtful that WWE will take the title off Randy Orton at this point, especially since he’s rumored to be feuding with AJ Styles going into the summer. And, even though anything can happen in WWE, it would be rather self-defeating to have Nakamura lose in his first match on the main roster.
