The Summerslam Odds Tell a Revealing Story

In a historic encounter, and the first ever television match that has had betting odds, Shinsuke Nakamura has defeated John Cena clean in the middle of the ring on Smackdown to earn the opportunity to challenge WWE Champion Jinder Mahal at Summerslam. Originally, Cena was a slight favorite but began moving in the direction of Nakamura, at one point being a -750 favorite and the sports book projections proved to be accurate yet again.

Now there are already odds by 5Dimes on the Summerslam Championship match, with Nakamura  slightly favored at -160 to Jinder’s +120. As always this does not necessarily mean Shinsuke walks away with the title as a count out or DQ win would not transfer possession of the championship. In fact, the odds on who will walk out as champion still most favor Mahal, even with Shinsuke favored to win the match itself. A screwy finish here would further build Mahal as the “undeserving champion”, while helping Nakamura solidify himself as a top star.

Jinder is at +115 and Shinsuke +165 for being champion at the conclusion of Summerslam. A $100 bet on either would win the number after the plus signs so $115 on a Jinder win and $165 on a Nakamura win. This is because Jinder has better odds so gamblers win less on him because he’s more likely at this point to walk out champion than Shinsuke.

The chance of a Baron Corbin MitB cash in is also possible and the odds on this happening are +295. The odds against a successful cash is -415 so a $415 bet on Baron not being champion after Summerslam would yield only $100 as this likely doesn’t happen at all. This could also be the reason for Nakamura being less likely than Jinder to walk out as champion. Corbin would be more likely to cash in on Shinsuke as opposed to fellow heel Jinder Mahal.

Who is Favored to be WWE Champion After Summerslam, Nakamura Now Slightly Favored over Cena

The following odds are sourced from 5Dimes. Bets are taken from players worldwide.

Can Jinder Mahal Keep the Momentum Through Summerslam

There are currently odds on who will be the WWE Champion at the conclusion of this year’s Summerslam in Brooklyn. The current champion, Jinder Mahal, has the best odds at +195 and this is understandable with Mahal being rumored to in for a long championship reign.

The other three possibilities that have odds are Shinsuke Nakamura, John Cena and Baron Corbin. Nakamura at +215 and John Cena at +230 are very close in the odds, with Nakamura having the slight edge. This is no surprise as the odds for tonight’s Smackdown match between the two men have shifted in favor of Shinsuke. The former New Japan star is favored to beat Cena at -150, with Cena the underdog at +110. This may not seem like a wide margin, and it isn’t, but it’s worth mentioning that yesterday Cena was slightly favored in this match, which has now changed. Cena leaving the Smackdown Brand and heading to RAW after Summerslam is also a relevant detail in both the Smackdown Match and who walks out of Summerslam Champion.

Baron Corbin also has odds set to be WWE Champion at the conclusion of Summerslam at +435. This would involve “The Lone Wolf” cashing in the Money in the Bank briefcase at the event. It is known that WWE is very high on Corbin’s potential, almost all MitB winners have successfully cashed in and Smackdown is in desperate need of building top level star power, especially with Cena leaving the brand at Summerslam.
