Summerslam Betting Results – oddsmakers accurately predict results, sans late flip

By James Caldwell, PWTorch assistant editor


Summerslam Update: Just before the Summerslam PPV, there was a sudden flip in Smackdown’s women’s division tag match.

Team Becky Lynch & Carmella & Naomi flipped to heavy -2000 favorites to beat the heel team of Alexa Bliss & Natalya & and their mystery partner replacing Eva Marie.

It turned out to be an odd flip, as the original favorite heel team won the match. That was the only upset of the night, as all other betting favorites won their matches.

August 21 Early Update: There are now clear betting favorites to win their matches after late money hit on Sunday. Worth noting for title matches where challengers are the favorites is the possibility of a DQ/count-out finish where the champion would retain…

– Brock Lesnar is a strong -2300 favorite over Randy Orton.

– Finn Balor is -1500 over Seth Rollins to win the Universal Title.

– Dean Ambrose is -1200 over Dolph Ziggler for the WWE Title.

– Charlotte is -1050 over Women’s champion Sasha Banks.

– The Club are -1700 over WWE tag champions New Day.

– Rusev is -1500 over Roman Reigns for the U.S. Title.

– A.J. Styles is -1500 over John Cena.

– The Miz is -750 over Apollo Crews for the IC Title.

– Jericho & Kevin Owens are -1500 over Big Cass & Enzo Amore.

– Natalya’s heel squad is -1500 over the face trio.

On the pre-show…

– Sheamus is -1200 over Cesaro to start the Best-of-Seven Series with a win.

August 18 Update: Three favorites have flipped to underdogs as late money has hit on the Summerslam PPV match betting lines.

Notably, three heels are now favorites to win after previously being underdogs…

– Charlotte jumped from a big underdog to a -210 favorite over Sasha Banks, who flipped from a -1,200 favorite to +160 underdog. It remains to be seen if WWE switches the Women’s Title back to Charlotte, or if it’s a DQ-like situation.

– IC champion The Miz is now the favorite at -195 over Apollo Crews at +155 in the IC Title match.

– Chris Jericho & Kevin Owens are suddenly -160 favorites to beat Enzo & Cass at +120 in New York.

The betting movement appears to tie in with potential follow-up on Raw and Smackdown to try to create “two-night stories” that carry over from Summerslam to TV.
