Interesting enough, Triple H is the favorite among online betting companies to win the Royal Rumble and the WWE World Heavyweight title tonight with odds as low as 2/5. Triple H isn’t even officially in the Rumble itself but many are predicting he will return and serve payback to Roman Reigns. Roman Reigns is next in line as the favorite to retain while following him are Brock Lesnar, Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose and Daniel Bryan.
In other matches, Del Rio is favorite to retain at 2/7, Charlotte is also favorite in the Divas match at 4/9, Dean Ambrose is at 4/9 to also keep his IC title, and The New Day at 4/7 over The Usos to hold on to their straps. For the Kickoff match, the Dudley Boyz are 4/6 to win followed by Henry and Swagger at 5/4 and The Ascension and Young and Sandow at distant third with both at 7/1. All the bets are most likely to change once “smart money” comes in later tonight.
There are several other bets being offered on the Rumble, with the most notable being the Suplex City specials where users can bet on total number of suplexes delivered by Brock Lesnar during the event or whether Brock suplexes Braun Strowman, Vince McMahon or even Paul Heyman! Other bets include a variety of Royal Rumble records, who will enter at number 30, number of eliminations by all top favorites, the last eliminated participant and whether HHH, Daniel Bryan, A.J. Styles, Sami Zayn and John Cena (amongst others) will take part in the Rumble match. Another bet is whether Tough Enough winner Josh will be on the receiving end of at least one suplex by Lesnar following his disrespectful comment on Twitter earlier in the week.
These companies are also offering Wrestlemania related markets where users can bet on the World Heavyweight Championship and Divas title holders at the end of WM 32 as well as whether CM Punk or Ronda Rousey will make an appearance at the Texas event.
