Aleister Black vs. Bobby Lashley Odds, Prediction, and Pick – WrestleMania 36 Betting Preview
In one of the most unexpected WrestleMania 36 matches, Aleister Black will face off against Bobby Lashley at this year’s Show of Shows.
This bout pitches two of WWE’s top performers against each other. But with no real rivalry between the two, it’s safe to say that wrestling fans have been left a little baffled by this matchup.
You can learn more about the match in this Aleister Black vs. Bobby Lashley betting preview. I look at the odds and analyze both fighters before sharing my pick for the bout.
Let’s begin by checking out the odds.
Aleister Black vs. Bobby Lashley Odds
Here are the latest odds for Aleister Black vs. Bobby Lashley.
Aleister Black is the bookies’ overwhelming favorite to win this match. However, I’m surprised the price for the Bobby Lashley win is so high. Both men come into WrestleMania 36 in good form.
Aleister Black to Steal the Show?
Aleister Black has been impressive since his elevation from NXT. The Dutch Destroyer has defeated just about everyone that’s stood in his way on WWE Raw, and now he has the chance to make a big statement against Bobby Lashley.
The two haven’t exactly been at each other’s throats recently, so this match has come somewhat out of the blue. But it gives Black the opportunity to prove himself against a top-quality opponent, and he’ll be looking to build on the momentum that he’s managed to generate.
Black seems to have taken on a new persona of late, making it very clear that he won’t be waiting for fights to come to him anymore.
The Dutch Destroyer has quickly established himself as one of the most feared wrestlers in the game, and a big WrestleMania win will set him up nicely for success at future events.
Will Bobby Lashley Win?
Like Black, Bobby Lashley has also been making waves recently. After stealing Lana from Rusev a few months ago, The All Mighty has featured heavily on Monday Night Raw, storming back into title contention with some eye-catching displays.
It was widely believed that WWE would attempt to engineer a major championship bout between Lashley and Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36, but that obviously hasn’t materialized. Instead, Lashey has been handed a mid-card match.
The All Mighty may view this as a stepping-stone to bigger things, but Black will have other ideas. It’s likely that Lashley will underestimate Black.
Aleister Black vs. Bobby Lashley Prediction and Pick
With no real storyline behind this match, this is definitely one of the most random fights at WrestleMania 36.
Black and Lashley would’ve been genuine contenders to win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. But with that match no longer going ahead, the two men have been paired up to go head-to-head against each other.
It’s clear that WWE needed to fill out the card, but this should still be a great matchup. Both wrestlers are a dominant force on Raw nowadays, so it’s set to be a hard-fought battle.
It will be close, but I’m backing Aleister Black to win. WWE has built up Black for a while now, so it would be strange to see him lose on such a big stage.
Of course, the price of -450 is nothing to write home about. But I can’t envisage anything other than an Aleister Black victory here.
