WWE Extreme Rules 2018 Betting Odds: This Is Not A Happy Rusev Day
I wish James Ellsworth winking was something I could bet on.
If you're a wrestling/sports entertainment fan--specifically WWE--then you're ready to go for tonight's PPV Extreme Rules, which will air on the WWE Network. This show tends to have some over-the-top stipulations to each bout, which can drastically change the odds of each match. Some of these include extreme rules, table, and steel cages matches--all of which are included on the match card tonight.
Extreme Rules is coming to the WWE Network today at 7 PM ET/4 PM PT with a Kickoff Show starting one hour prior. The PPV will take place at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, PA. There are eleven matches in total on the card, with one taking place on the Kickoff. If you want to know the betting odds for the evening, you're in the right place.
Before we get to the actual betting odds, here's a little explanation of how money lines work. In the case of Alexa Bliss vs. Nia Jax, Jax's line is +220 and Bliss' is -300--she's favored to win. These money lines are from 5 Dimes, if you bet $100 on Jax, you'll win $220 for her money line and your $100 back for a total of $320. For Bliss, you need to bet $300 in order to win $100, for a total of $400 if Bliss wins her match. If a person has a positive money line, you have the chance to win a lot more money; however, that's because they are not favored to win.
The lock of the evening, according to 5 Dimes, is AJ Styles for the WWE Championship. His money line is -460. And on the flip side, the bet that has the chance to make the most money is Styles' opponent, Rusev, whose money line is +320. The closest match of the evening is the Smackdown Tag Team Championship match. Team Hell No's money line is -105, and their opponent, The Bludgeon Brothers, is slightly favored at -135. Basically, that match could go either way according to the experts. Check out the full odds for the evening below.
