It wasn’t a clean sweep on Sunday night but it was certainly a good night for the betting favourites at SummerSlam. Most came out on top, with the matches as a whole going as the betting suggested they would with the odd exception.
One of the main events of the night was one that didn’t go the way of the favourite, this was the upset that saw Drew McIntyre defeat Randy Orton for the WWE title.
Which Betting Favourites Came Out on Top?
For anyone betting on favourites to win at SummerSlam, the chances are they had a good night.
The Fiend took home the Universal Championship with him and he was a strong favourite to defeat Braun Strowman.
Asuka was a really interesting fighter on the night because she was fighting in two bouts in a bid to win both Raw and Smackdown women’s titles. The betting had her as the underdog to win the Smackdown title and favourite to win the Raw title. That is exactly how things went, she took home the one title she was fancied to win.
Apollo Crews defeated MVP to retain the United States title and this was another fight that went the way of the favourite. Rounding off the winning favourites, Seth Rollin got the better of Dominik Mysterio and Mandy Rose won her ‘loser leaves the WWE’ match against Sonya Deville.
As you can see, it was a very good night for those betting on the favourites. The big events such as SummerSlam are all available for punters to bet on, with odds usually available with bookmakers a few days in advance of the event.

Did We See Any Surprises?
Although there weren’t too many surprises on the night, we did see a couple of notable ones , including in one of the main fights of the night. That was Drew McIntyre defeating Randy Orton, a fight that Orton was the favourite for.
Elsewhere, another surprise came in the Raw tag team title matchup. Although holders of the titles, the Street Prophets were big outsiders to retain them when they faced Andrade and Angel Garza but it was the title holders that came out on top in this one. This will likely go down as being the biggest shock of the night on a night when few others took place.
It will be really interesting to see the story lines that come out of the event, as ever with SummerSlam there is plenty to talk about and that will no doubt include WWE Payback which is on the horizon.
This is often a key moment of the year for many WWE superstars, and we are right in the middle of the action now. What we saw at SummerSlam was many of the favourites winning their bouts, but the feeling is that there is plenty more coming in the next few weeks that could change things.
