It’s that time of the year again in WWE where the Superstars from SmackDown and Raw will collide in a battle for bragging rights and brand supremacy at Survivor Series. Nothing tangible is ever at stakes in these series of matches (including championships), but the in-ring action never ceases to deliver.
The main event of this year’s installment of the Thanksgiving week classic, airing this Sunday, November 21st, 2021 will see Universal champion Roman Reigns wage war with WWE champion Big E. Raw Women’s champion Becky Lynch and SmackDown Women’s champion Charlotte Flair will also rekindle their rivalry in the undercard.
As inconsequential as the event turns out to be most years, it’s also the most difficult to predict as a majority of the matches could go either way. Ahead of Survivor Series, let’s take a look at the favorites that will emerge victorious in the night’s four biggest bouts, according to the current WWE Survivor Series odds.
WWE Survivor Series 2021 Odds

|10-Woman Survivor Series Elimination Match||Odds|
All odds as of November 18
Men’s Team Raw vs Team SmackDown Odds
Team Raw will consist of Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, Bobby Lashley, Finn Balor and Austin Theory, while Drew McIntyre, Jeff Hardy, King Woods, Happy Corbin and another SmackDown Superstar to be announced will make up Team SmackDown. These elimination tag team matches are known to be unpredictable, and this should be no exception.
Regardless of who occupies that final spot for SmackDown, Team Raw is absolutely stacked on paper. The Mysterios being taken off the team in favor of Lashley and Theory may have actually made the squad stronger seeing as how both men are being aggressively pushed at the moment.
SmackDown has currently has the advantage in the odds at -250 to Raw’s +175, but it’s hard to envision a scenario where Rollins, Owens (following his heel turn) or even Lashley would be beaten. That makes Raw the stronger choice, especially since no one on Team SmackDown seems to be in line for anything meaningful in the near future.
Women’s Team Raw vs Team SmackDown Odds
Bianca Belair, Liv Morgan, Rhea Ripley, Carmella and Queen Zelina will fight for Raw and Sasha Banks, Shotzi, Shayna Baszler, Natalya and one more mystery SmackDown star will represent the blue brand. Although this is another case of Team Raw having more star power, SmackDown should get the win here if Raw wins the men’s matchup, and the odds reflect that.
SmackDown has the ever-so-slight advantage over Raw in the odds, so a win for them is far from a guarantee. Then again, there’s already animosity among Ripley, Carmella and Zelina, and while Banks and Shotzi essentially cancel each other out as well as rivals, Baszler is there to be the sole survivor for her team.
There’s no safe bet in this one, but of the two, SmackDown is the better bet.
Lynch vs Flair Betting Outlook
These two heated rivals have no shortage of history together. Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair have waged war on many occasions, but the amount of bad blood between them has reached an all-new high in recent weeks.
Not only that, but both women are at the top of their game at the moment. However, Lynch being the clear betting favorite at -400 shouldn’t come as much of a surprise with the roll she’s been on as a heel lately.
Truth be told, it virtually doesn’t matter who wins because either one of them can easily absorb the loss and not be damaged by it. It simply makes more sense for Lynch to emerge victorious now that we know Liv Morgan is waiting in the wings for her, whereas Flair doesn’t have anything lined up coming out of Survivor Series.
Reigns vs Big E Best Bet
This match will mark the first-ever one-on-one encounter between Big E and Roman Reigns. They’ve been at odds for months and Reigns’ recent run-ins with Big E’s New Day brethren King Woods and Kofi Kingston make this all the more interesting.
As well booked as Big E has been as WWE champion, Woods interfering and distracting or attacking Reigns is the only real chance Big E has at victory. That’s largely due to the dominant run Reigns has had as Universal champion over the last year-plus and how no one has been able to stop him.
Survivor Series would be the wrong time for Reigns to suffer his first singles defeat in nearly two years, so Reigns is rightfully the heavy favorite at -400. Regardless of the outcome, look for this to be a hotly-contested clash that settles their score once and for all.
