WWE News: Betting Odds for No Mercy Pay-Per-View
What’s the Story?
As the No Mercy pay-per-view approaches, the betting odds from Bet Wrestling show that most of the champions defending their championships this Sunday are expected to retain their titles.
In Case You Didn’t Know
The No Mercy pay-per-view is the first show since SummerSlam occurred this past August and is the first Raw exclusive show since Great Balls of Fire back in July.
No Mercy was originally a SmackDown exclusive show during the original brand split and last year when the pay-per-view was revived, but both brands have switched a few of their pay-per-views following the Superstar Shakeup.
The Heart of the Matter
The following is the breakdown of each match scheduled to take place with exception to the pre-show match between Apollo Crews and Elias Samson:
Finn Balor -300 vs Bray Wyatt +220
Roman Reigns -445 vs John Cena +315
Alexa Bliss(c) -120 vs Sasha Banks or Nia Jax or Bayley or Emma -120 (Raw Women’s Championship)
Neville(c) -300 vs Enzo Amore +220 (Cruiserweight Championship)
Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins -585 vs Sheamus & Cesaro +385 (Raw Tag Team Championships)
The Miz(c) +135 vs Jason Jordan -175 (Intercontinental Championship)
Brock Lesnar(c) -1530 vs Braun Strowman +720 (Universal Championship)
The only champion not expected to retain their title is The Miz. According to hee predictions, he will lose the belt to Jason Jordan.
Lesnar and Cena are not expected to return to television after their matches this Sunday and that could have some big implications for Sunday.
Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that Lesnar is expected to retain against Strowman following which he will be absent from WWE programming for the remainder of the year.
If these are in line with the WWE’s decisions for No Mercy, there’s a good chance that the fans won’t be satisfied with the “WrestleMania-caliber” show.
