Seth Rollins will defend his WWE World Heavyweight Championship for the first time since winning the belt at WrestleMania 31, and he isn’t expected to lose it. He’s one of a few heavy favorites to win his match at Extreme Rules 2015 on Sunday night in Chicago.
According to the betting odds at Paddy Power, Rollins is a 1/9 favorite to defeat Randy Orton at the pay-per-view. The main event is a rematch from WrestleMania 31, which saw Orton defeat Rollins. Orton used the RKO to get the pinfall victory, but Sunday’s stipulation has banned him from using the finisher in the steel cage match.
It’d be shocking to see Rollins lose, but he isn’t the biggest favorite on the card. John Cena has even better betting odds in his rematch from WrestleMania 31 with Rusev. A month ago, Rusev had never been pinned in WWE. Now, he’s a 5/1 underdog.
The Divas Championship match might be the most difficult one to predict. Both Nikki Bella and Naomi have 5 /6 odds.
Daniel Bryan is expected to retain the Intercontinental Championship if he has a match with Bad News Barrett. The match is still listed on the card, but an injury could force Bryan to miss the PPV.
The PPV can be seen on the WWE Network for $9.99 a month, but some fans will be able to watch the event for free. New subscribers get the WWE Network for free for the entire month of April.
