This Sunday, the WWE returns to Peacock for their Money in the Bank 2021 pay-per-view. This will be the second show since the fans have returned to the arena, and WWE is clearly heading back towards normalcy. Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas, will host the 12th annual edition of the Money in the Bank pay-per-view. Many superstars will see their careers change this Sunday, but only two will see their careers change for the better.
Let’s get into it, giving our WWE Money in the Bank predictions and picks, along with the betting odds.
WWE Money in the Bank 2021 Predictions + Picks
Roman Reigns (-650) vs Edge (+375)
Edge is back after his loss at WrestleMania. This time, however, he rightfully gets his one-on-one match for the Universal Championship. Roman Reigns has been the man carrying the championship since last August. Reigns has been dominant ever since. There are no signs of him slowing down now even though Edge has been making the Usos look weak in the middle of the ring. Reigns will retain and go on to defend once again at SummerSlam.
Money in the Bank Predictions: Roman Reigns (-650)
Raw Tag Team Championship:
AJ Styles & Omos vs The Viking Raiders
This is one of two matches on the card without odds currently listed. Best guess would lead one to believe that A.J. Styles & Omos are the favorites in this match. The Viking Raiders earned this opportunity by winning a tag team battle royal a couple of weeks ago. They have looked strong since then, but Omos is too big and A.J. is too good for WWE to let them lose the first match between the two. A.J. Styles & Omos retain at Money in the Bank.
Money in the Bank Predictions: AJ Styles & Omos
Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match:
Alexa Bliss vs Natalya vs Asuka vs Naomi vs Liv Morgan vs Nikki Ash vs Zelina Vega vs TBD
The other match that has no odds attached to it is the women’s ladder match. This could be because there is still another superstar to be announced, or because this match could be won by any of the seven women announced so far. Natalya or Naomi could get their final run with the women’s title while Liv Morgan, Nikki Ash and Zelina Vega could all use this to propel themselves up the women’s division. Asuka and Alexa Bliss could also continue their dominance, but they don’t need this win as the others do. This match could honestly steal the show and the winner could very well surprise some people.
Money in the Bank Predictions: Liv Morgan
Bobby Lashley (-1000) vs Kofi Kingston (+525)
Kofi Kingston has had a nice run here since the last pay-per-view. They are really building him up as a singles competitor again. That being said, NO ONE is beating Bobby Lashley right now. Kofi will get his time later, but for right now, Lashley is the unstoppable almighty one.
Money in the Bank Predictions: Bobby Lashley (-1000)
Raw Women’s Championship:
Rhea Ripley (-140) vs Charlotte (+100)
This is a rematch from Hell in a Cell. Rhea Ripley won by DQ last time, and I feel as though this isn’t the last time that these two women will face off. Something screwy is going to happen once again on Sunday, and that will set up a SummerSlam trilogy fight. I feel as though Charlotte will get the DQ win this time around.
Money in the Bank Predictions: Charlotte (+100)
Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match:
Seth Rollins (+200) vs Kevin Owens (+800) vs King Nakamura (+1200) vs Big E (+500) vs Drew McIntyre (+175) vs Ricochet (+1600) vs Riddle (+550) vs John Morrison (+1200)
The Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match has some more favorites than in the women’s match. Drew McIntyre and Seth Rollins come in as the front runners to win the match, at under +200. Both of these two could use the briefcase to get back into the title picture. I would look elsewhere for the winner, though. It is time for one of the guys who hasn’t seen the title to use it to help build himself. With that being said, my pick isn’t that crazy of a longshot.
