What's the story?
WWE Money in the Bank is just over a month away and Sky Bet has released the early odds on favorites to win the Men's and Women's Money in the Bank matches. Read on to find out.
In case you didn’t know…
The Money in the Bank ladder match is one of the most exciting events of the year. The match was first conceptualized in 2005 and took place at WrestleMania. Since 2010, the match takes place on its own namesake pay-per-view. Since last year, WWE introduced a women's match as well.
The winners of the matches are entitled to a shot at the World Championship at a place and time of their choosing within one year of winning the MITB briefcase. Baron Corbin and Carmella won the contracts last year.
The heart of the matter
Betting odds are sometimes a good indicator of who might end up winning the matches, however, the event is a good 5 weeks away during which the odds are subject to change.
Braun Strowman, Finn Balor, The Miz and Rusev have already qualified for the Men's match while Charlotte and Ember Moon have booked their spots in the Women's match.
The early favorites to win the Men's MITB match are The Miz, surprisingly followed by Big E, with the Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman being the third favorite to win. Here are the odds:
Ember Moon is the current odds-on favorite to win the Women's MITB briefcase, while Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks come in at the 2nd and 3rd spot respectively. You can check the entire list of odds here:
The next few weeks are sure to see more qualifying matches. The PPV itself is set to take place June 17th at the Allstate Arena in Chicago.
It has been rumored that Big E is being considered for a singles push and this might be the platform. It will be sad to see the New Day breaking up though!
