Bayley, Kai & SKY vs Belair, Bliss & Asuka Pick
The dominant trio of Bayley, Dakota Kai and IYO SKY wasted no time taking control of Raw’s women’s division upon their arrival. They immediately made enemies out of Bianca Belair, Alexa Bliss and Asuka, setting up this star-studded six-woman tag team match that could have major implications for Bayley’s crew if they win.

Kai and SKY are coming off a big loss on Monday’s Raw and need a rebound victory. That combined with Bayley having her sights set on Belair’s Raw Women’s Championship make them the odds-on favorites here.
Edge & Mysterio vs Judgment Day Prediction
Edge and The Mysterios have been a thorn in the side of Judgment Day for months. It’s been hard to take Judgment Day seriously as a threat when they’ve lost almost every match they’d had with them, which is why Clash at the Castle will be a must-win situation for Finn Balor and Damian Priest.

It’s been heavily teased that Dominik Mysterio will factor into the finish in some form or fashion, giving Judgment Day a significant edge to emerge victorious at -300.
Riddle vs Rollins Best Bet
The bad blood between Matt Riddle and Seth Rollins reached an apex on Monday’s Raw when Rollins got personal with Riddle during their promo exchange. Riddle showing a more serious side in recent weeks has a breath of fresh air and Rollins has played his part to perfection.

Regardless of the outcome, this feud must continue beyond Clash. Rollins winning would be the better bet to ensure he doesn’t get his comeuppance at the hands of Riddle.
SmackDown Women’s Championship Pick
Triple H has had a renewed focus as of late on Shayna Baszler after years of the former NXT Women’s champion not being involved in anything of note. She now has a chance to reassert her dominance by beating Liv Morgan for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, which is very much a real possibility.
Morgan has been positioned as the ultimate underdog so far, so trailing at -250 in the odds, it’s safe to assume she’ll find a way to win. Baszler capturing the championship would be a big boost for her, but it’s more likely Morgan resumes her rivalry with Ronda Rousey heading into Extreme Rules.
Intercontinental Championship Prediction
Sheamus has been gunning for the Intercontinental Championship for quite some time now. It would make for an amazing moment for him to finally win it in Cardiff, but Gunther is almost impossible to bet against right now with the tear he’s been on since debuting on SmackDown in April.
Gunther is heavily favored due to his dominance as champ, but this will no doubt be a barn burner no matter who wins.
Undisputed WWE Universal Championship Best Bet
At just over two years in length, Roman Reigns’ historic run as Undisputed WWE Universal Championship is truly in jeopardy when it comes to his upcoming encounter with Drew McIntyre, who was robbed of a world title win in front of fans due to the pandemic emerging in 2020.
With Reigns trailing just behind McIntyre in the odds, consider The Scottish Warrior the safe choice for his high-stakes collision. It finally feels like the time has come for it to happen for him to be beaten, though there’s always the outside chance of Reigns retaining to remain champ for a bit longer. Between the two, McIntyre is the best bet.
