WWE Backlash 2017 Predictions

WWE Backlash 2017 betting odds

Bookmaker Paddy Power is offering odds for every single match-up at WWE Backlash, including the WWE Championship match between Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal. The bookmaker is predicting victory for Orton, but who else is the Irish firm backing for success? Here is a full rundown of the WWE Backlash 2017 betting odds…

WWE Championship: 1/5 Randy Orton; 3/1 Jinder Mahal

SmackDown Tag Team Championship: 1/14 The Usos; 11/2 Breezango

United States Championship: 1/12 Kevin Owens; 11/2 AJ Styles

1/14 Luke Harper; 11/2 Erick Rowan

1/6 Tye Dillinger; 7/2 Aiden English

WWE Backlash 2017 Betting Tips Explained

The bookmakers are not being particularly giving with their odds for Sunday night’s card, and that is no real shock because there is a huge air of predictability about who will win the matches. Therefore it is simply a case of looking for a bet with a decent price and that comes via the Sami Zayn-Baron Corbin match.

Zayn was one of the movers during the recent Superstar Shakeup but his career continues to follow the same path it did on Monday Night RAW – defeat after defeat. He is now taking on a superstar WWE appear to be really high on in Baron Corbin, and I am predicting another defeat for the ‘Underdog from the Underground’ in Chicago.

Zayn has the underdog character down so well he can lose matches without it harming his popularity, and at some point he will get a run at the top of the Smackdown Live card. But for now Corbin is the man heading towards the main event. This win will keep ‘The Lone Wolf’ on course for a shot at the WWE Championship – which I expect to see happen at some point this year.
