Early betting odds are out for this weekend's Payback event, and there are a few surprises.
Let's go through the card. The main event is almost certainly going to be Braun Strowman vs Roman Reigns, with Braun having a 67% chance of winning and odds of 1/2.
Then there's the House of Horrors match, which gains some unpredictability after being declared a non-title match. Randy Orton is still favored at 4/6 and Bray Wyatt is at 11/10. Seth Rollins is favored at 4/9 to defeat Samoa Joe, and Kevin Owens is the overwhelming favorite to defeat Chris Jericho at 1/7. Both Neville and The Hardys are favorites to retain their titles, at 4/6 and 2/5, respectively, and on the Kickoff Show, Enzo & Big Cass are seen as the safe bet to defeat Gallows & Anderson, at 4/7.
The one title change is favored to be Alexa Bliss defeating Bayley for the Women's Championship, with odds of 4/7 (a 64% probability).
Here is the full list of matches and their odds.

Here is the full press release, sent out by BetWrestling.com:
The betting odds for this Sunday’s Payback have been posted by Grosvenor Casinos, which also has a sportsbook available in Ireland and The UK. A possible title change is projected at this point but the lines often change. This becomes more dramatic when odds are offered to the global market later in the week.
Early odds of 4/7 (64% probability) see Alexa Bliss winning against Raw Women’s Champion Bayley. This does not necessarily mean Bayley loses the title in the event of a count out or DQ, but the bet would be graded as a win for Bliss. All other champions are currently projected to retain: Kevin Ovens is favored over Chris Jericho for the US Championship, Neville is favored to retain the Cruiserwieght Title against Austin Aries and the Hardyz are projected to retain the Raw Tag Titles against Cesaro and Sheamus.
Braun Strowman has odds of 1/2 ,or a nearly 67% probability. Booking patterns would suggest with the onslaught of abuse Braun has put Roman through that Reigns would get his revenge by beating Strowman in the ambulance match. This may not be the case as Braun did suffer a loss in a dumpster match with Kalisto on the go home Raw leading into Payback.
The House of Horrors match has odds favoring Randy Orton at 4/6 (60% probability) against Bray Wyatt. This match is Wyatt’s creation, Raw is his home brand and Orton’s WWE Championship isn’t even on the line. A strong case can be made that Wyatt should be favored and the odds on this match could easily flip in the other direction.
Seth Rollins is a 4/9 favorite to defeat Samoa Joe and on the Kick Off Show, Enzo and Big Cass are 4/7 favorites to beat Gallows and Anderson.
