On Sunday at WWE "Battleground" 2017 PPV, AJ Styles defends The United States title against Kevin Owens. Owens is a multi-time holder of the legendary belt, while Styles is enjoying his first title reign with that particular championship. The two stars will clash in an anticipated rematch of what went down off of WWE television. Here's the latest on the AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens WWE "Battleground" match including predictions for the winner based on the latest betting odds.

The match build

For a few months now, AJ Styles has been battling with Kevin Owens for the U.S.

Championship. He came up short at the pay-per-view events they competed on. However, this past month saw a shocking title change occur as AJ Styles won the WWE United States Championship at a live event held in New York. The WWE house show featured Styles nailing the Phenomenal Forearm to grab a pinfall win. With that, Styles had his big moment and surprised fans by capturing the title prior to his match with Owens at "Battleground."

Originally, Styles had won a battle royal on "SmackDown Live" with the winner earning a title shot. However, things changed when Styles surprisingly won the strap off television programming. Owens still gets his rematch and "Battleground" will be the site for that match.

Can Owens win the championship for a third time in his impressive career thus far?

Match odds & prediction

AJ Styles and Kevin Owens normally put on a great match and that should once again be the case at WWE "Battleground" PPV. The last time these two met, Owens got the sneaky win after battling Styles on top of the announcers' table and causing his leg to slip into a hole on top of the desk.

The latest betting odds may give a good prediction of who will win this match. As Paddy Power reports, AJ Styles is the favorite at 4 to 11 odds. Owens is currently listed as a 17 to 10 underdog which is worth working at for fans who suspect Styles' title reign will be short-lived.

That said, Styles' mentioned he was going to start holding the open challenge for his title.

John Cena nearly had his chance on a recent "SmackDown Live" but that was interrupted by Owens and Rusev. Cena will have to get past Rusev in a Flag Match Sunday to put his name into the pool of contenders.

Shinsuke Nakamura also seems to have his eyes on the prize. He and Styles have a well-known history going back to New Japan, so don't be surprised if "The King of Strong Style" also gets a title shot in the future.

WWE fans do you think AJ Styles will walk out of "Battleground" on Sunday still the United States Champion?
