Hideo Itami main roster update; Final Mahal/Styles odds Submitted by Aaron Rift on 11/07/2017 at 02:03 PM
- PWInsider.com has double downed on the site's recent report about Hideo Itami coming to the main roster soon as part of the cruiserweight division. The word reportedly going around at tonight's Smackdown Live event in Manchester is that Itami's debut will be happening in the near future.
- Here is the final information regarding betting odds for tonight's Jinder Mahal vs. AJ Styles match for the WWE Title courtesy of BetWrestling.com:
Since the odds went slightly in favor of AJ Styles, by the time word got out that there was a title change on RAW last night in Manchester AJ became heavily favored at -900 to Jinder Mahalís +500. Cesaro and Sheamus becoming tag team champions on a pretaped event showed a willingness by the WWE to have title switch happen knowing spoilers would get out in advance, this could be the reason why the odds went so heavily in AJís favor. The long odds didnít last however, as AJís odds decreased overnight. Jinder is now slightly favored at -160 to successfully defend the WWE Championship on Smackdown. Thereís no indication that any of this is due to possible leaked finishes, but rather a run from gamblers backing Jinder and getting $5 for every $1 wagered on a possible victory. AJ Stylesí odds are currently +120, meaning a $100 bet upon success would win $120.
