WWE TLC betting odds have been released, according to Wrestling Inc. Odds makers believe that the WWE Heavyweight Championship, Intercontinental Championship, United States Heavyweight Championship, Divas Championship, and the Tag Team Championships are staying right where they are. Sheamus, Kevin Owens, Alberto Del Rio, Charlotte, and the New Day have the best bets at walking away from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, with their belts in tact. Since pro wrestling fans love to see title belts exchanging hands, this might be deemed a lackluster event if the betting websites are accurate.
Sheamus is defending the WWE Heavyweight Championship against Roman Reigns at WWE TLC this Sunday night. While there is a good amount of fans that do not want to see the Celtic Warrior with the belt, there is also a good amount of fans that are opposed to the idea of Reigns being elevated into the top spot in the company. Sheamus (-750) is favored to keep the belt against Reigns (+450) and build up more heel heat by having his League of Nations helping him to keep the belt.
Kevin Owens (-280) is defending the WWE Intercontinental Championshp against Dean Ambrose (+200) at the tables, ladders and chairs pay-per-view this weekend. The belt hasn’t been much of a focus as of late because the creative department has been busy with the stable wars story lines. Since the front office isn’t putting too much effort into this belt, a title change does not appear likely.
At WWE TLC, seldom-used Jack Swagger (+280) will be challenging Alberto Del Rio (-400) for the United States Heavyweight Championship. The two will be engaged in a chairs match, which means that they will applying steel to their opponent’s skin. Swagger was recently rescued from the basement, so he doesn’t have enough momentum to carry a belt right now. Jack might even be sent back down to the basement after the feud ends.
The WWE Tag Team Championships will be defended in a triple threat match featuring current titleholders New Day (-210), the Usos (+230), and the Lucha Dragons (+700). Very few people are giving Kalisto and Sin Cara much of a chance of walking away with their first championship together. Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston, and Big E Langston are one of the top acts in WWE, so they will more than likely retain the belts.
Paige (+350) will be challenging Charlotte (-530), who was rushed into a heel turn recently, for the WWE Divas Championship at the TLC pay per view. The heel turn itself is a big reason why the odds are favored towards Charlotte. Management must be planning something long term for she and Ric Flair.
An Elimination tables match has been set up for WWE TLC, and it will involve Team ECW (Tommy Dreamer, Rhyno, and the Dudley Boyz) and the Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, and Braun Strowman). Even though the Wyatt Family (-475) are more of a long term plan for the promotion, Team ECW (+325) is favored to pick up the victory, which means that the creative department would be choosing nostalgia over long-term planning.
Rusev (-190) and Ryback (+150) have been at odds for the last couple of weeks, and they’re both looking to settle the score at the TLC pay per view. Since the feud is of low priority to WWE, the baby face will more than likely pick up the victory to appease the audience. Plus, Lana is still in the doghouse with the front office so they could punish Rusev.
Do you think the odds makers will be right about every WWE TLC match?
