A change in odds for both the men and women’s Royal Rumble matches took place before the show went live on pay-per-view.
Roman Reigns was the favorite to win the men’s match leading up to the show but now odds have shifted to Drew McIntyre. Reigns went from having 1/2 odds to win to now 10/3, good enough for second favorite, while McIntyre went from 10/3 himself to 1/3 favorite.
The women’s Rumble match also underwent a change with Charlotte Flair going from 13/2 and third favorite to first with 3/10 odds. Shayna Baszler was 1/3 up until a couple of hours ago and now is at 5/2 to win it.
The change in odds suggest that a lot of money was being placed on these two individuals, enough for bookmakers to make the switch.
