The Clash of Champions pay-per-view is just two weeks away now, but only five matches have been confirmed for the show thus far.
We'll see Randy Orton get another chance at Kofi Kingston's WWE Championship. Meanwhile, Seth Rollins will defend his Universal Championship against Braun Strowman. Those two will also put their Raw Tag Team Championships on the line against Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler. Randy Orton will get another chance at Kofi Kingston's WWE Championship
Elsewhere, Bayley will defend her SmackDown Women's Championship against Charlotte Flair, and Drew Gulak will put his Cruiserweight title on the line against Humberto Carrillo. The King of the Ring Champion will also be crowned.
Sky Bet (h/t Ringside News) has listed the favorites for confirmed matches. For starters, Kingston is a 1/2 favorite to retain his WWE Championship, while Orton is listed as a 6/4 underdog. These were the exact same odds for both superstars for their SummerSlam match.
Strowman and Rollins are 6/5 underdogs to win the Raw Tag Team Championships match, while Roode and Ziggler are favored at 8/13. And finally, The Architect has 1/2 odds to defeat Strowman in their Universal Championship bout, while The Monster Among Men is a 6/4 underdog.
Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio explained earlier this week that Roode and Ziggler will likely win the match. WWE needed to find a new duo to build around, and they're hoping that these two can do it.
And obviously, it doesn't make much sense for Strowman and Rollins to retain the titles when they're clashing for the Universal Championship. As such, it's no surprise that they're the underdogs against this brand new duo.
What This Means
These odds provide a strong indicator of who's going to win the match. Take a look at the odds heading into SummerSlam, and you'll see that the heavy favorites won every time. But you never know what Vince McMahon has up his sleeve, and Clash of Champions could provide more surprises than the average pay-per-view. We'll just have to see how it plays out.
