Betting for the Royal Rumble matches seem to have not changed since yesterday and the popular belief is that both Shinsuke Nakamura and Asuka will be walking out of Philadelphia as winners.
Nakamura is the favorite to win the men’s Rumble, with slightly different odds from different betting companies. Roman Reigns is close second, with John Cena, Daniel Bryan, and interestingly enough Dolph Ziggler also in the mix.
For the women’s Rumble, Asuka is also the favorite…just barely though as Ronda Rousey is close behind her even though Rousey jetted to Colombia in the weekend to continue filming her movie. Becky Lynch and Stephanie McMahon are also being touted as possible winners. McMahon will be doing commentary for the match but it wouldn’t be the first time that someone from the commentary table entered the Rumble.
In the two main title matches, Brock Lesnar looks to be retaining with odds 2/9, followed by a Strowman win at 4/1 and a Kane long shot at 10/1. AJ Styles is also favorite to retain the WWE title at 2/5 while Owens and Zayn are 7/4 for the win.
Sheamus and Cesaro are currently favorites to win the Raw Tag Team titles at 4/6 and Rollins and Jordan have odds of 11/10 to retain the straps. The odds are also in favor of the challengers in the Smackdown Tag Team title match with Gable and Benjamin at 8/11 favorites while The Usos are evens.
Betting lines will most likely change as the event gets closer to bell time.
