WWE SummerSlam 2018 Betting Tips

AJ Styles to beat Samoa Joe @ 8/11 Paddy Power

Wrestling fans were made to wait a long time to finally see AJ Styles in a WWE ring, but ‘The Phenomenal One’ has made the wait worth it over the past couple of years, even if his 2018 feud with Shinsuke Nakamura turned out to be one of the most underwhelming rivalries we have seen in recent years. WWE fans had been expecting a series of classic matches from the pair but what they got was lacklustre at best, so moving Styles on to a feud with former TNA pal Samoa Joe should prove to be a smart one. Joe’s time on the main roster has been stop-start due to injuries, but he has been booked strong by WWE and I would not be surprised to see him sitting at the top of the Smackdown Live tree in the coming months. However, the WWE may hold off on pulling the trigger on a Samoe Joe title reign just yet, meaning Styles leaves Brooklyn STILL the WWE champion. 

The Miz to beat Daniel Bryan @ 8/11 Paddy Power

As soon as Daniel Bryan was cleared to return to the ring fans were hoping they would see a feud with ‘real life’ rival The Miz. I would have been predicting Bryan for a successful outing at SummerSlam, but there are reports that he is yet to sign a new deal with WWE and with his current contract set to expire in September, the company are unlikely to risk giving him a win over one of its top performers who should, quite frankly, be in the main event scene. The Miz has been on fire in recent years and a win over Bryan at SummerSlam will give him another thing to gloat about on TV.

Becky Lynch to beat Carmella & Charlotte @ 13/8 Paddy Power

Becky Lynch played a key role in the ‘women’s evolution’ that has ultimately led to the ladies getting their own PPV in October, but it would not be unfair to say that she has found herself in the shadow of Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks and Bayley in recent years. However, the WWE have booked ‘The Lass Kicker’ on a bit of win streak in recent weeks, giving her some momentum going into SummerSlam, and perhaps she will deservedly get her big moment by ending Carmella’s reign over the Smackdown Live women’s division at the ‘biggest party of the summer’.

Braun Strowman to beat Kevin Owens @ 4/11 Paddy Power

I have to back Braun Strowman because of what I am expecting to happen in – or should I say after – the main event…

Roman Reigns to beat Brock Lesnar @ 1/3 Paddy Power

I will keep this short and sweet – there makes absolutely no sense for Roman Reigns to lose ANOTHER match against Brock Lesnar. Granted the booking of Reigns has been absolutely appalling over the past couple of years – burying his reputation with a vocal part of the fanbase – but after defeats at WrestleMania and the Greatest Royal Rumble why would WWE even put this match together if Reigns was not going to finally end his Lesnar hoodoo at SummerSlam? Reigns lifting the belt to end the PPV will not go down well will the live crowd, but they will go home happy because I predict we will hear the scream of ‘BRAAUUUUUNNNN’ and Mr Money In The Bank will cash in to leave New York as the new Universal Champion.
