The Real Extended Bialas-Bzdak (ReBB) model is shown here to describe, in the GeV region, the proton-proton elastic differential cross section data published by the TOTEM Collaboration at LHC at TeV center of mass energy. In this kinematic range, corresponding to the diffractive minimum-maximum region, a model-dependent Odderon signal higher than 18 is obtained by comparing the ReBB model prediction for the elastic differential cross section to this TOTEM measured pp elastic differential cross section data at 8 TeV. However, when combining this signal with the Odderon signals from the ReBB model in the GeV four-momentum-transfer range at 1.96, 2.76 and 7 TeV, it turns out that the combined significance is dominated not by the new 8 TeV but by that of earlier 7 TeV TOTEM data, that carry an even larger Odderon effect. Thus, in any practical terms, within the framework of the ReBB model, the Odderon signal in the limited GeV and TeV kinematic region is not a probability, but a certainty. We show also that the H(x) scaling version of the ReBB model works reasonably well at 8 TeV in the GeV region.
