Off the back of yet another spectacular NXT TakeOver event in WarGames II last night, the time has come for the one night of the year that Raw and SmackDown go… LIARS.
There, I got the joke out the way in the first sentence.
These are UK style odds, so they work in a fraction format: A/B. For every value of B that you bet, you win A + the stake return.
Before you read on, while betting odds aren’t absolute spoilers, they do usually point in the right direction, so that’s just something to be aware of. Also, they may well fluctuate depending on when you read this, but all odds are correct at time of publishing.
Tag Teams 10 vs. 10 Survivor Series Elimination Match – Kickoff
Just looking at that graphic makes me think “that looks a bit of a mess,” and… that’s quite an accurate statement really isn’t it.
Somewhat unsurprisingly, the odds are heavily in favor of SmackDown in this one.
- Raw Tag Teams – 10/3
- SmackDown Tag Teams – 1/5
Women’s 5 vs. 5 Survivor Series Elimination Match
Notable absences from the Raw team include Sasha Banks, Bayley and Ember Moon… but at least Tamina’s there!
Nonetheless, despite still having one team member not revealed after Charlotte was subbed in for Lynch to take on Ronda Rousey, team blue are the favorites once more.
- Raw Women’s Team – 6/5
- SmackDown Women’s Team – 8/13
Champion vs. Champion – AOP vs. The Bar
It’s the battle of the Tag Team Champions, as AOP, with Drake Maverick by their side, take on Sheamus and Cesaro of the Bar, who are backed up by Big Show for reasons that still haven’t been explained.
Despite having a rather enormous bloke in their corner, the odds are against the Bar and this point looks set to go to Raw.
- AOP – 2/5
- The Bar – 7/4
Champion vs. Champion – Seth Rollins vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
In the battle between the IC and US Title holders, the ‘Kingslayer’ Seth Rollins takes on the ‘King of Strong Style’ Shinsuke Nakamura, in quite a stark contrast to the match we got last year in this spot, which saw The Miz take on Baron Corbin.
Nonetheless, Rollins does have the extra factor of former Shield brother Dean Ambrose to worry about, and that is reflected in the odds, that have him in as the underdog.
- Seth Rollins – 5/2
- Shinsuke Nakamura – 2/7
Buddy Murphy (c) vs. Mustafa Ali – WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Good news everyone, they’re still promoting this for the main show!
Murphy only won the title a couple of months ago at Super Show-Down, and he is favorite to retain the strap in what should be a brilliant match.
- Buddy Murphy – 4/11
- Mustafa Ali – 2/1
Men’s 5 vs. 5 Survivor Series Elimination Match
In a match with so many combustible elements that the teams are similar to the Republic of Ireland’s back four, the men’s 5-on-5 match looks set to be very, very good indeed.
Despite not having the BEST IN THE WORLD Shane McMahon on their team, it’s Raw who are favorites to pick up the win here.
- Raw Men’s Team – 1/3
- SmackDown Men’s Team – 9/4
Raw vs. SmackDown – Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair
After Becky Lynch was pulled from this match due to being clobbered in the face by Nia Jax on Raw, she chose Charlotte Flair to take her spot as Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey’s opponent.
Thus, Rousey is the definitive favorite here, and is actually 4/1 to pick up the victory within the first five minutes.
- Ronda Rousey – 1/10
- Charlotte Flair – 11/2
Champion vs. Champion – Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel Bryan
In the bout that looks slated to be the evening’s main event, Universal Champion Brock Lesnar takes on new WWE Champion Daniel Bryan.
If this does go on last, it will almost certainly be the match that decides whether it’s Raw or SmackDown that win the night overall, and it’s Lesnar of the red brand who is favorite to take it.
- Brock Lesnar – 1/4
- Daniel Bryan – 11/4
