The betting odds for Sunday’s WWE Battleground pay-per-view show reveal little intrigue ahead for the WWE Universe with a notable exception in the SmackDown Women’s Fatal 5-Way No. 1 Contender match.
Odds have swung mightily in the last day or so. After oddsmakers had Natalya at +1200 with the only longer shot in the match being Tamina, she is now the favorite at -215, surpassing previous favorite, Charlotte Flair, whose odds have dropped to +195.
With SummerSlam ahead in August, it was doubtful this show would make many waves and the betting odds have reflected that. All of the champions – Jinder Mahal, AJ Styles and the Usos – are favorites to retain the belts and John Cena is an overwhelming favorite to win his flag match with Rusev.
Here are odds, according to BetWrestling:

Jinder Mahal(c) -260 vs Randy Orton +180
WWE United States Championship
AJ Styles(c) -210 vs Kevin Owens +160
Smackdown Tag Team Championship
The Usos(c) -215 vs The New Day +165
