The WWE Universal Championship will be on the line on Sunday when Brock Lesnar takes on Seth Rollins as a -200 betting favorite (wager $200 to win $100) on the 2019 SummerSlam odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.
It has been a seesaw battle between these two WWE superstars in their quest for the Universal Championship. Rollins won the title with a controversial victory over Lesnar this past spring at WrestleMania 35. However, the former All-American wrestler took his revenge last month at Extreme Rules, quickly disposing of Rollins after cashing in on his Money in the Bank contract, and will enter the ring as the first-ever three-time WWE Universal champion in Sunday night’s matchup at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.
Lesnar is no stranger to the big stage at SummerSlam. The 42-year-old first appeared at SummerSlam in 2002, where he defeated The Rock for the WWE Undisputed Championship. More recently, Lesnar has battled for the WWE Universal Championship at SummerSlam in each of the past two years, avoiding banishment from the WWE by emerging victorious in a Fatal-4 Way battle for the belt against Samoa Joe, Roman Reigns, and Braun Strowman in 2017 before losing the title to Roman Reigns a year ago.
Rollins needed to survive an All-Star Top 10 Battle Royal on Raw the night following his loss to Lesnar at Extreme Rules to earn Sunday night’s rematch against the Beast Incarnate. However, the two-time WWE World Heavyweight champion remains pegged as a +150 underdog (wager $100 to win $150) at online betting sites in his first-ever SummerSlam main event appearance.
In addition to the highly anticipated clash between Lesnar and Rollins, four other WWE championship belts will be up for grabs at SummerSlam 2019.
Becky Lynch is set as a strong -300 favorite as she prepares to defend her Raw Women’s Championship for the fourth time against Natalya, who will enter the ring as a +200 underdog.
Bayley sits as a -200 favorite to defend the SmackDown Women’s Championship in her clash with Ember Moon, who sports +150 odds, while Kofi Kingston is listed as -200 chalk as he puts his WWE Championship belt on the line against WWE legend Randy Orton, who lags as a +150 underdog.
Elsewhere on the SummerSlam 2019 odds, AJ Styles is a -200 favorite to defend his WWE United States Championship in a scheduled match with Ricochet, while Shane McMahon is listed as a +250 underdog in his bid to successfully end his long-time feud with Kevin Owens.
