Jinder Mahal Now A Betting Favorite To Win At Backlash

WWE Champion Jinder Mahal

With just a few days until Sunday’s Backlash pay-per-view, Jinder Mahal is now a betting favorite to defeat Randy Orton for the WWE Championship.

According to WWELeaks.org (via betting site Paddy Power), Randy Orton was the favorite (1/6) and Jinder Mahal was the underdog (7/2) when the betting market opened on Wednesday.

The odds remained consistent on Friday morning, when things started to narrow. By Friday afternoon, there was a surge in betting for Jinder Mahal, who is now a 3/10 favorite over Orton (11/5).

We’ll keep an eye on the betting lines over the next couple days and will provide an update if there are any more significant shifts. There is still time to see things shift back in Orton’s favor, but things are looking good for Jinder as of this writing.

Join us here this Sunday for our Live Coverage of WWE Backlash.
