Will WWE Payback be the start of a new season in the WWE or the final chapter in WrestleMania season saga? The answer is yes ... to both ... as the first post-Mania pay per view will ad some finality to a few WrestleMania feuds while opening up new possibilities for many WWE Superstars heading into the summer.
The bigest question going into Sunday's Payback is, of course, who will come out of the event victorious. To find out who is likely to head into the post-Superstar Shake-Up era, we need to look no further than the casinos. Betting odds for Payback have been posted by Grosvenor Casinos, which also has a sportsbook available in Ireland and The UK. Our friends at Bet Wrestling have given us the favorites for this weekend's big event.
The lines can often change as we get closer to the event so be sure to check back with BetWrestling.com this weekend to see if any of the following lines have made any big moves.
For the first time in a long time, neither the WWE Championship or the Universal Championship will be at stake this Sunday, but that doesn't mean we won't get to see any gold swapping places.
Here are all the latest odds for what will go down at this Sunday on the WWE Network.
WWE Payback Odds
United States Championship:
Kevin Owens 1/7 vs Chris Jericho 4/1
Raw Women's Championship:
Bayley 5/4 vs Alexa Bliss 4/7
Neville 4/6 vs Austin Aries 11/10
Raw Tag Team Championship:
Hardy Boyz 2/5 vs Cesaro and Sheamus 13/8
Roman Reigns 6/4 vs Braun Strowman 1/2
House of Horrors Match:
Randy Orton 4/6 vs Bray Wyatt 11/10
Seth Rollins 4/9 vs Samoa Joe 13/8
Enzo and Big Cass 4/7 vs Gallows and Anderson 6/5
But what does it all mean?
The following is from BetWrestling:
"Braun Strowman has odds of 1/2, or a nearly 67% probability. Booking patterns would suggest with the onslaught of abuse Braun has put Roman through that Reigns would get his revenge by beating Strowman in the ambulance match. This may not be the case as Braun did suffer a loss in a dumpster match with Kalisto on the go home Raw leading into Payback.
Early odds of 4/7 (64% probability) see Alexa Bliss winning against Raw Women's Champion Bayley. This does not necessarily mean Bayley loses the title in the event of a count out or DQ, but the bet would be graded as a win for Bliss. All other champions are currently projected to retain. Kevin Ovens is favored over Chris Jericho for the US Championship, Neville is favored to retain the Cruiserwieght Title against Austin Aries and the Hardyz are projected to retain the Raw Tag Titles against Cesaro and Sheamus.
The House of Horrors match has odds favoring Randy Orton at 4/6 (60% probability) against Bray Wyatt. This match is Wyatt's creation, Raw is his home brand and Orton's WWE Championship isn't even on the line. A strong case can be made that Wyatt should be favored and the odds on this match could easily flip in the other direction."
