WWE TLC Betting Odds: Drew McIntyre, Roman Reigns The Favorites

  • WWE’s TLC PPV airs on Sunday at 7:00 p.m. EST.
  • Drew McIntyre has -600 odds to defeat AJ Styles and retain the WWE Championship.
  • Roman Reigns has -2000 odds to beat Kevin Owens and keep his Universal Championship.

LAS VEGAS - The WWE’s Tables, Ladders and Chairs PPV event takes place this Sunday, and there are plenty of great matches on the card.

At the top of the card are two high level championship matches, as Roman Reigns faces off against Kevin Owens, and Drew McIntyre battles AJ Styles.

Both of these matches are going to be quite interesting. The former features Roman Reigns, the Universal Champion, taking on a solid challenger in Kevin Owens.

The latter is a TLC match between two of the top stars on Raw, AJ Styles and Drew McIntyre.

Quick reminder: Wrestling is predetermined, so analysis of wrestling betting requires some knowledge of the stories the promoters and wrestlers are trying to tell. This also means that outcomes do occasionally leak, although WWE is known to change match outcomes just before they start, so take leaks with a grain of salt.

Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens

Roman Reigns has been the dominant wrestler in the latter half of 2020, running wild all over the WWE Smackdown roster. Reigns’ heel turn has led him to become perhaps the most compelling character in all of WWE, a brooding, domineering champion with a win-at-all-costs mentality.

His opponent, Kevin Owens, has been cast as a decent family man this time around, sick of Roman’s general nastiness.

This matchup is wildly lopsided according to the WWE odds.

Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns Odds

  • Kevin Owens +650
  • Roman Reigns -2000

The calculus behind these odds is fairly simple - Reigns is the best thing going in the WWE right now, and they wouldn’t have him lose until someone meaningful can beat him. Whether or not that’s Owens is up for debate, but if it is Owens, it won't be at TLC.

Reigns is looking like the top heel in the promotion right now, and guys like that don’t lose at just any PPV - they win, to keep their heat going.

This matchup is weighted heavily in Reigns’ favor given those factors - and it would be hard to convince someone to bet against Reigns in this spot. This matchup will be a TLC matchup, meaning tables, ladders and chairs will be used during the match - a brawler’s dream.

Drew McIntyre vs. AJ Styles

Drew McIntyre has been in the WWE Championship picture since he won it at Wrestlemania earlier this year. His opponent this time is one of the best pure wrestlers in WWE, AJ Styles.

Styles is the kind of talent that can go anywhere on the card, and he is absolutely a worthy challenger to McIntyre.

The sportsbooks tend to agree:

AJ Styles vs. Drew McIntyre Odds

  • AJ Styles +350
  • Drew McIntyre -600

This matchup is much closer than Reigns vs. Owens, according to the sportsbooks, but the Champion still has an advantage. McIntyre has -600 odds to win this matchup, which will be a TLC (Tables, Ladders and Chairs) match.

For those that aren’t familiar with wrestling or WWE TLC betting, that means that this match will involve all of those items. Someone will go through a table, someone will fall off a ladder, someone will get hit with chairs.

This could be a good match to watch simply for entertainment value. On the betting boards, however, -600 odds on McIntyre is nothing to shake your head at.

Here are the odds for the rest of the card:

Bray Wyatt vs Randy Orton

  • Bray Wyatt -300
  • Randy Orton +200

Sasha Banks (Raw Women’s Champion) vs Carmella

  • Sasha Banks -500
  • Carmella +300

The New Day (Raw Tag Team Champions) vs The Hurt Business

  • The Hurt Business -200
  • The New Day +150
