With the exception of a few matches, early odds for most bouts at WWE Extreme Rules this Sunday are very close. Thanks to our friends at Bet Wrestling for sending the following:
The lines below have plenty of room to move and early bettors will be taking advantage of this before the weekend wager rush that occurs with WWE pay-per-views. Since mid-2017, "smart money" odds have 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. The rest of the card is very close in terms of odds. Finn Balor, Roman Reigns, The Deleter of Worlds and Dolph Ziggler are all marginal favorites.
