In case you didn't know...
The 30th annual WWE Summerslam pay-per-view will be hosted this Sunday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
A two-hour long pre-show will lead up to the 'Biggest event of the Summer'.
The heart of the matter
In betting odds, the positive (+) sign indicates the underdog heading into a certain match while the negative (+) is used to represent the favourite. The numbers mentioned after the signs denotes how favoured or unfavored the competitors are.
There have been several changes in the odds but Brock Lesnar is still considered the favourite to retain his WWE Universal Championship. Samoa Joe is next in line to emerge as the victor, followed by Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns.
Nakamura is now heavily favoured to win his match against Jinder Mahal. However, this win may be in the form of a DQ or a count out and the WWE Championship may not change hands.
Both the Women's champions are considered to retain their respective titles at the 'Biggest event of the Summer', whereas, both the tag team Champions may lose their gold this Sunday. John Cena had an advantage over Corbin earlier on but 'The Lone Wolf' is favoured as the winner now.
Rusev and Big Cass are slated to win their matches at Summerslam but there is only a slight difference in the odds compared to what their opponents have.
We will have to wait a few more hours to find out if these predictions turn into a reality or not. Summerslam pay-per-view will be telecasted live in the WWE Network from 7E/4P with the special pre-show starting from 5E/2P.
Over the years, betting odds have been credited for spoiling an event before it gets broadcast. That means the competitors who are favoured in the odds generally emerge as the victor in their respective matches.
When the smart money comes in, the odds turn out to be more and more accurate with the predictions.
