As seen on Sky Bet, the betting odds for the WWE Championship match between Daniel Bryan and Kevin Owens at Fastlane have been revealed.
The returning Owens will be challenging Bryan for the belt when WWE rolls through Cleveland next weekend, in what will be one of the featured matches at the Fastlane event. A week ago, however, many fans didn’t even think this match was a realistic possibility.
KO will be replacing Kofi Kingston as per the wishes of WWE chairman Vince McMahon, with many fans believing that Kofi will now get his shot at WrestleMania instead.
Regardless of whether or not that’s the case, the betting odds currently favour Daniel Bryan as the 1/4 favourite to retain the WWE Championship. Owens, despite this being his comeback match, is an 11/4 underdog.
Kevin may pick up a win on the upcoming episode of SmackDown Live before the pay per view, but either way, it’ll be interesting to see how WWE books this one if Bryan does, in fact, retain the belt.
They’ll want to protect Owens for whatever he ends up doing at Mania, whereas Kofi will seemingly fit into this equation somehow.
It’s going to be a very interesting few weeks for the WWE Championship picture, because there are so many possibilities when it comes to who will compete for the strap at Mania.
Can Owens wind up pulling off the upset? Stranger things have certainly happened in WWE over the years, but the bookmakers certainly think it’s a step too far for the former Universal Champion.
