While much of the internet wrestling community has been predicting that Roman Reigns will recapture the WWE Heavyweight Championship at TLC, odds makers feel the opposite. Right now, Sheamus is a heavy favorite at -750. Odds on Reigns are +450. The belief is that the Celtic Warrior is going to keep the belt so that he can build up more momentum as a heel champion.

One of the reasons why WWE put the world heavyweight championship on Sheamus is because they want the fans to root for whoever he is up against.
