The WWE Backlash 2016 updated betting odds is finally out and just for the record, WWE Backlash 2016 will be the first SmackDown branded pay-per-view in 9 years and the first Backlash pay-per-view in 7 years. This could also mark the beginning of a first WWE championship reign for AJ Styles.
Since debuting at the Royal Rumble in January, Styles has been making noise and since been on fire. He now looks to take the championship off Dean Amrbose. His wins over Roman Reigns and John Cena at SummerSlam gave him the chance for a title match with Ambrose, the Odds Bible said.
According to Wrestling Inc, lines for several important Backlash matches have changed dramatically and some even flipped sides. While AJ Styles is now even more of a favorite at -900, Nikki Bella is no longer favored for the Smackdown Women’s Championship. Her opponent Becky Lynch is now being favored at -490.
