WrestleMania 36 betting lines are probably bigger spoilers than ever

There’s always a chance the odds sports books place on WWE events will be spoilers. Pro wrestling is pre-determined, after all. Somebody knows who’s winning. The way the lines can shift closer to the open bell suggest word starts to get out once Vince McMahon approves the final script.

With WrestleMania 36, however, everything was taped more than a week before it will air. WWE is working on closed sets, so they contained who knows the outcome of each match somewhat. But still... people talk.

Keep all that in mind as you check out the latest lines from Bet Online, who also noted how the odds have changed over the past couple weeks. Goldberg’s Universal title match isn’t included as WWE hasn’t officially announced his opponent.

Brock Lesnar +225
Note: Odds unchanged since initial release.

Most of these are money line bets. In a nutshell, the name with a negative number next to it is the favorite, and you have to wager that amount to win $100. The name with a positive number next to it is the underdog; you will win the posted amount for each $100 you wager.

For example, a correct $500 bet on Edge wins $600. But if you correctly bet $100 on Orton in that match, you’ll get $400 back.

The win odds for the multi-person/team matches work the same way. Wager the second number, and you’ll get your original bet plus the second number back.

e.g. Sasha is the favorite in the SmackDown Women’s title match. Bet $1 on The Boss, win $2 if she leaves ‘Mania with the belt. Bet $1 on longshot Tamina, collect $34 at the window if she shocks the world.

Looks like we’ll have some new champions come Monday morning. I haven’t seen odds on whether or not we’ll have new shows past next week’s already-filmed Raw and NXT, however.
