Ronda Rousey, Roman Reigns, and Braun Strowman are currently the biggest favorites on the show, which doesn't seem like too much of a surprise. Rousey has always seemed like the logical choice to walk away from SummerSlam with gold in the women's division, Strowman is in the midst of a big push that should result in him eventually getting involved in the Universal title picture, and Reigns looks to finally get that elusive win over Lesnar.
Perhaps the most surprising note in the current odds is that Carmella is favored to walk out of SummerSlam still holding the SmackDown Women's Title. Considering perennial fan favorites Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch are across the ring from her, it would be most surprising to see her leave the show with the gold. However, there is always the possibility that a conflict between Flair and Lynch causes both of them to lose the match as they begin a feud against one another coming out of SummerSlam with Carmella still reigning as champion.
Both The Miz and Daniel Bryan are actually considered underdogs in their bout. Odds makers clearly don't know what to make of that match entirely. Bryan's pending contract expiration with WWE certainly plays a part in that.
Other notable items from the odds show the Bludgeon Brothers, who's title reigns has been anything but a creative success so far, favored to defeat The New Day, Seth Rollins looking likely to recapture the Intercontinental title, and Shinsuke Nakamura the odds-on favorite to walk out of the show still U.S. champion.4comments
