With just one day left until Money In The Bank, the favorites to win both ladder matches make for interesting reading.
Money In The Bank is almost upon us. By the time you read this, it could well be less than 24 hours away. Considering the direction in which WWE's creative has been headed recently, this PPV is going to be a big one. There is normally a lull in the weeks after WrestleMania, but this year has been something else.
MITB is now considered one of WWE's big five PPVs. With all of the company's major titles on the line plus the chance to crown to MITB holders, it's the perfect time to start over. The ideal setting to start building momentum to SummerSlam. There will be 16 Superstars battling out for the MITB briefcases, and here are who BetOnline believes will be most likely to lay claim to them.
Drew McIntyre is currently the betting favorite on the men's side of things at 2/3. The Scot certainly needs something right now. McIntyre went months undefeated when he re-debuted on the main roster. Since then, he has been losing on the regular and lost all of his steam. McIntyre walking around with that briefcase acting as a constant threat to both World Champions would make for some tense situations.
In the women's match, Mandy Rose is the narrow betting favorite at 9/4. It is no secret and also no surprise that Rose is doing well in WWE right. Vince McMahon is a big fan of blonde, beautiful women. In fact, there's a chance that by the end of MITB, beautiful blonde women could be champions on both shows as well as Miss Money In The Bank.
If the current betting favorites wind up winning the two contracts, we think we would be entirely okay with that. However, we are still mildly bewildered that betting on wrestling is even a thing. Even if the odds are accurate due to information leaking out, Mr. McMahon could catch wind of it and just change all of the results. Basically, be incredibly wary when betting on professional wrestling.
