The oddsmakers have set Vegas Styles lines for WWE Survivor Series, an event that features Inter-Brand Play between Raw and Smackdown. Out of eight matches, Raw is favored in five of them, leaving Smackdown projected as winning only three matches. While WWE touts both brands as being equal, the company has also been criticized for showing favoritism to Raw as the flagship show.
Recent trends continue with Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey being the most favored overall on the card, and thus far she has been unstoppable so these odds are sensible. Universal Champion Brock Lesnar has impressive odds to defeat newly crowned WWE Champion Daniel Bryan in a match that had been planned years ago, but scrapped due to injuries suffered by Bryan.
Four hard-hitting bruisers meet in tag team competition when Raw Tag Champs, The Authors of Pain take on Smackdown Tag Champs Sheamus & Cesaro. The younger AoP is favored to capture victory for the Raw Brand. Elsewhere on the card, United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura is the favorite against Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins.
For those unfamiliar with reading the betting odds, a minus sign represents the favorite, while the plus sign indicates the underdog. The size of the corresponding number tells us how favored or unfavorable the wrestler(s) happen to be at a given time, although odds do fluctuate and even reverse altogether. All matches listed below are under “end of broadcast” grading, meaning the final result in the event of a match being restarted or having the decision reversed.
