Odds as of July 15

Styles and Omos vs Viking Raiders

This Raw Tag Team Championship contest was originally scheduled to take place on Monday’s edition of Raw but was bumped up a day to the Money in the Bank pay-per-view to make up for Bianca Belair vs. Bayley not taking place. The two teams have been at odds for months, and Viking Raiders have gotten the better of the champions on a few occasions, but this match is absolutely Styles and Omos’ to win.

The odds currently favor Styles and Omos retaining their titles at -350 and for good reason. They’re clearly on a collision course with Riddle and Randy Orton, collectively known as RK-Bro, at SummerSlam and therefore won’t be dropping the belts before then.

Ripley vs Flair

Money in the Bank will mark the third one-on-one encounter between Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair, though it’s worth noting that Flair has beaten Ripley on every occasion. Ripley is the favorite to win on Sunday at -120, but it’s far from a guarantee that she’ll be walking out still the Raw Women’s champion.

In fact, Flair is the better bet of the two considering she hasn’t held the prestigious prize in a few years. Her regaining the gold would put Ripley in chase mode and allow the rivalry to run through SummerSlam where Ripley can overcome The Queen.

Lashley vs Kingston

Bobby Lashley’s reign as WWE champion has been nothing short of dominant, at least up until recently. In addition to suffering a non-title loss to Kofi Kingston on Raw in May, he also shockingly came up short against Xavier Woods this past week on Raw, sending the message that Lashley’s title run could be in jeopardy of ending at Money in the Bank.

Despite that, Lashley is the heavy favorite to emerge victorious at -1000. There’s certainly a chance Kingston pulls out another upset over Lashley and takes back the belt, but Lashley retaining is the safer choice as he continues to run rampant over the Raw roster.

Reigns vs Edge

Interestingly, of the top two title matches on Sunday night, one can argue that Lashley vs. Kingston is the more unpredictable of the two. Although Edge is a threat to Roman Reigns’ run as Universal champion, taking the title off Reigns so close to SummerSlam would be a massive mistake.

Edge is obviously the underdog here at +400, but Reigns will almost definitely be coming out on top in this contest. Reigns vs. John Cena for the Universal title is reportedly a lock for SummerSlam, while Edge vs. Seth Rollins makes too much sense to not do on that same show given their history.

Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match

Unless there’s a last-minute change made to the match and there’s a surprise winner, which is entirely possible, Big E is absolutely the best bet to go with as the 2021 Mr. Money in the Bank. Not only is he the current favorite at +150 (albeit not by a wide margin), he would benefit the most from carrying the contract for the next few months and eventually cashing it in for a shot at the Universal Championship.

The only other people that make sense to win are Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre, who are trailing Big E in the odds. Rollins has unfinished business with SmackDown’s current champ Roman Reigns while Money in the Bank would allow McIntyre to get back into the title hunt, but Big E is the fresh face fans want to see WWE run with, and it’s the only outcome that would end the evening on a high note.
