SummerSlam 2018 Odds
Brock Lesnar (+210) vs. Roman Reigns (-290) for the Universal Championship
Alexa Bliss (+260) vs. Ronda Rousey (-380) for your Raw Women’s Championship
AJ Styles (-150) vs. Samoa Joe (+110) for the WWE Championship
Carmella (+210) vs. Becky Lynch (+105) vs. Charlotte Flair (+180) for the SmackDown Live Women’s Championship
Braun Strowman (-300) vs. Kevin Owens (+220)
Dolph Ziggler (+205) vs. Seth Rollins (-285) for the Intercontinental Championship
Shinsuke Nakamura (-210) vs. Jeff Hardy (+160) for the United States Championship
Cedric Alexander (-110) vs. Drew Gulak (-130) for the Cruiserweight Championship
There is little in the way of surprises.
Becky Lynch is a somewhat unexpected popular in the Triple Threat match for your SmackDown Live Women’s Championship. Nevertheless, the Irish Lass Kicker is one of the very best technical wrestlers in WWE’s women’s division. She hasn’t held the title since December 2016.
A protracted championship reign for Lynch are a nice change of pace for SmackDown Live.
Concerning value plays, Braun Strowman vs. Kevin Owens could be the most suitable choice.
Lesnar apart, The Monster Among Men has basically run through everybody in the company. An individual would expect him to do the exact same to KO at SummerSlam. On the other hand, the Money in the Bank contract provides a little more intrigue.
The MITB briefcase is much more successful on a heel or a underdog babyface. Somebody with Strowman’s size should not have to resort to underhanded tactics so as to win a domain; he must beat the winner up one-on-one.
WWE has gone full throttle with the”Monster at the Bank” moniker for Strowman, but it’s not ridiculous to believe the business ultimately has different plans in mind for its briefcase.
Lining up Owens for a title shot is also a great way to receive his sanity back on track after his feuds with Strowman and Shane McMahon normally knocked him down the WWE power rankings.
