Where To Bet WWE SummerSlam Online

In this article I am going to be talking about Betting on WWE SummerSlam.

Online sportsbooks initially only offered betting odds for Wrestlemania, however with the popularity of that they soon started listing odds for other pay per views beginning with SummerSlam. The first WWE SummerSlam available to bet at online sportsbooks was SummerSlam 2012, and they have continued to offer various SummerSlam bets and props every year.

With it being one of WWEs biggest PPVs of the year, the sportsbooks usually offer odds for SummerSlam a good month prior to the event, updating the odds and card.

America: For Americans, the sportsbooks I would recommend is BetOnline. They have great odds and are one of the best for American wrestling fans. BetOnline only started offering wrestling betting odds in 2019.

Everywhere Else: I should note that while they are listed for Americans, you are able to bet at BetOnline. So if you are chasing the best betting odds then be sure to look there.

However, for non-Americans the best online sportsbook for betting on WWE SummerSlam without a doubt is 888. They offer great odds and have a variety of prop bets that the others don’t. They are my #1 choice for betting on any wrestling – not just SummerSlam.

What SummerSlam Bets Are There?

The most common thing you can bet on when it comes to SummerSlam is the outcome of the matches.

This is available at any online sportsbooks that offer SummerSlam odds. You will be able to bet on who will win the match. If it is a triple threat match or with more contenders, you can usually make bets involving the field.

At SummerSlam 2018 for example, there was a match involving Charlotte vs Carmella vs Becky Lynch. You could bet either of those ladies to win but you could ALSO bet against one. So you could bet “The Field versus Charlotte” and as long as Becky or Carmella won, you would have won your bet.

Most online sportsbooks stick with that. The only real different sportsbook in that regard is 888 who will run various prop bets based on the specific matches. It varies show to show but at 888 you can bet on what Dave Meltzer’s star rating will be.

Dave Meltzer is a popular wrestling reporter and reviewer and his five star rating scale is considered to be the gold standard in professional wrestling. He is one of the foremost experts in wrestling and has probably watched more matches than anyone alive so his star ratings hold a lot of weight. You can get really into trying to figure these out by using Meltzer’s history of ratings for individual wrestlers and the place on the card to try and figure how he might judge a match.

There are also various props involving who will tag first, who will go for the pin first, the over/under on the length of the match, and other things like that. These can be really hard to predict as you never know quite how a match will go. I’d compare them to betting on the coin flip in an NFL game. Sure, it’s fun but you are basically throwing a dart blindly at a board because there can really be no way of knowing which wrestler will attempt a pin first.

Common WWE SummerSlam Betting Questions:

What was the biggest ever SummerSlam betting upset?

SummerSlam actually doesn’t have many betting upsets – the favourites are often winners. However, the biggest SummerSlam betting upset was Charlotte winning at SummerSlam 2016 over Sasha Banks. Charlotte was a +700 underdog heading into the match, but her pay-per-view winning streak continued with the win here.

That same SummerSlam also saw Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens defeat Enzo and Big Cass. Jericho and Owens were +550 there as so many people thought they were on the verge of breaking up and that this would be the match where it would happen. Instead, their friendship had a few more months left in it.

Like I said though, this is one of the chalkiest events that WWE puts on as more often than not the favorites get the win with only the smallest underdogs getting a win.

What could you bet on at SummerSlam 2012?

As I mentioned above, SummerSlam 2012 was the first SummerSlam you could place bets on online. Sportsbooks were very wary at that time and only offered three matches which were Brock Lesnar vs Triple H, CM Punk vs Big Show vs John Cena and Sheamus vs Alberto Del Rio.

What are the WWE SummerSlam 2019 Betting Odds?

Wrestling odds change often so I always suggest you check the odds at BetOnline before the show.

The 2019 event featured Goldberg winning as -1200 favorite against Dolph Ziggler, Bray Wyatt winning at -1500 against Finn Balor, Bayley winning at -230, Becky Lynch winning at -320, Kevin Owens winning at -425 against Shane McMahon, and Seth Rollins at +125 winning in a minor upset against Brock Lesnar.

A very heavy favorite show with a lot of matches where the result seemed obvious heading in. The closest to an upset on the show was Seth Rollins’ win.

What time does SummerSlam start?

The event typically starts at 6 PM Eastern time in the United States and 11 PM Greenwich Mean time. There is a pre-show that begins earlier which can involve matches, but this is the period that the main show will air.

It can be important to get your bets in before showtime because many sportsbooks end all WWE betting when the show starts, even if a match is yet to take place.

How to Bet WWE SummerSlam Online

BetOnline: You can find all of their wrestling odds listed under “Game Props” in the sidebar. Click that and it expands then click “Wrestling” and it will list all odds. Simply tap on what you want to add it to the bet slip to the right.

888: You can either use the sidebar to click on all sports then choose WWE/Wrestling or simply type “WWE” into the search bar. Note that on days of TV shows they will pull their odds early that day to see what happens. So if you are looking for SummerSlam odds on a Monday at 4pm EST you’re not going to find them. They will put them up the next day.

WWE SummerSlam Betting Strategy:

As I noted above, SummerSlam isn’t really a famous pay per view in terms of upsets. The upsets that did happen in retrospect were very obvious ones.

So if you are looking to bet WWE SummerSlam, bear in mind that the favourites are the more likely winners. Plus because it’s 2nd to Wrestlemania in terms of prestige, WWE like to put over some of their more notable stars here it seems. Wrestlers like Charlotte, The Miz etc who they like to protect are usually going to be winners at this show unless there is a very good reason not to.

End of the day look for the most obvious booking and don’t try and talk yourself out of it!
