With the exception of a few matches, early odds for most bouts at WWE Extreme Rules this Sunday are very close. These lines have plenty of room to move and early bettors will be taking advantage of this before the weekend wager rush that occurs with WWE PPVs. Since mid-2017, “smart money” odds stopped coming in and the general predictability of a match became the driving force behind line moves. There have been more upsets in the last six months than any other period.
Currently, the most lopsided odds are with AJ Styles retaining the WWE Championship against first time challenger Rusev. Styles is -415 as the favorite to win. The Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss also has impressive odds of -365 to successfully retain against Nia Jax in an Extreme Rules match.
In a Steel cage match, Braun Strowman is favored at -245 to defeat Kevin Owens and these odds seem like they should be more in favor of Braun. The rest of the card is very close in terms of odds. Finn Balor, Roman Reigns, Asuka, Team Hell No, Shinsuke Nakamura, Deleter of Worlds and Dolph Ziggler are all marginal favorites. It can be expected that these lines will move by the weekend.
