Betting odds for some of the biggest clashes taking place at WWE’s upcoming Clash of Champions PPV have been released ahead of the highly-anticipated event.

The promotion’s just come off a very positive period, having hosted SummerSlam and Payback one week apart and some intriguing storylines are in the making, with eyes set on Clash of Champions. Bookmakers have made odds available on the confirmed matches and it is expected that there will be a lot more to bet on, with new signups also likely to qualify for free bets. 

What are Free Bets and how do they work? It’s pretty straightforward and, as the term suggests, they’re literally free bets. Those are offered by a number of the top sportsbooks and require zero deposits. However, most of these sportsbooks do not include a punter’s original free stake in winner payouts.

As far as Clash of Champions goes, Drew McIntyre v. Randy Orton is one of the fights most fans are looking forward to seeing. The Viper went up against McIntyre for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam but was unsuccessful in his attempt to dethrone the Claymore-delivering superstar. He will get another shot at the upcoming event, which airs on September 27, and is 4/5 to win. McIntyre, on the other hand, is 10/11 to retain his belt.

Both performers have been involved with new main roster addition Keith Lee in recent times and it’s possible that the former NXT Champion could be involved in a storyline for the WWE Championship following the PPV - or maybe even during. Lee saw McIntyre interfere in two of his fights with Orton recently, leading to results of no-contest, and had to urge the champion to cease and desist. He got a match with McIntyre on Monday night and that, unfortunately, also ended in a no-contest as Retribution got involved.

Roman Reigns’ Universal Championship will also be on the line against his real-life cousin Jey Uso. Jey and his brother Jimmy have been big on the tag scene for years but the former is now in the picture for singles glory. Reigns, who recently returned from a hiatus spanning several months, won the title from Bray Wyatt at SummerSlam and will be called upon to defend it later this month. The Big Dog is the overwhelming favorite for this one at 1/20, with his blood relative 8/1.

Meanwhile, Bayley is a 1/5 favorite to defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Nikki Cross following her split from Sasha Banks. Bayley has been SmackDown champ since Money In the Bank last May and has had quite the successful run. Cross will hope to end her reign at Clash of Champions and the bookies are offering odds of 10/3 on her prospects.

Another recently confirmed match for the inbound show happens to be for the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship. Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler will defend their belts against Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott of The Riott Squad. The bookmakers have the current holders at 4/9 and the challengers at 13/8.

As mentioned above, there will be more odds as it pertains to this event as matches get confirmed by WWE.
