Early Betting Odds for Sunday's Great Balls of Fire PPV
Friday, July 7, 2017
Early odds for this Sunday’s Great Balls of Fire PPV have been submitted and set by The European bookmakers. Early projections show that all of the champions except the Tag Champions will be retaining their championship. However, most of the booking odds are very close except for one match. This match is the Universal Championship match with Brock Lesnar heavily favored at -1667, which is about 94% chance of winning. Samoa Joe, the challenger, is a +700 underdog, so a $100 bet would yield $700 upon success. Conversely, it would take $1667 just to make $100 on Brock.
Alexa Bliss and The Miz are both favored to retain at -278, while Cesaro and Sheamus are slight underdogs at +125. In the case of Bliss, this is an obvious build for her vs Nia Jax for SummerSlam, so her walking out as champion is the most sensible outcome looking forward.
Bray Wyatt at -175 is favored to defeat Seth Rollins at this time and Big Cass is favored at -250 to beat Enzo in the first match of their feud. These are the early odds and they can shift dramatically as well as flip completely in the other direction. Once these matches are offered in the global market, the major shifts start happening even more as more people are placing bets, which moves the line so sports books remain balanced.
