It’s that time of the year again and in just over 24 hours we will kickstart the road to WrestleMania with the 2022 Royal Rumble live in St. Louis.
With only a few matches on the card, we will take a look at the early odds of all the matches today and then tomorrow we will update with the latest numbers hours before the start of the show.
In the WWE championship match, it’s the first-ever one-on-one encounter between Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley. The champ Lesnar is 4/6 favorite to walk out of The Dome still champion while Lashley is 27/25 to get another crack at the gold.
The situation is similar as well in the Universal title match as the champion, Roman Reigns, is the favorite to retain the title. His odds are 2/5 while that of Rollins are at 7/4.
There are rumors that Lesnar and Reigns are still on a collision course to main event WrestleMania so somewhere along the way, one of the two will eventually drop the title.
Becky Lynch and her Raw Women’s title seem to be secure enough as Lynch is the overwhelming favorite with odds of 1/16 to keep the belt while Doudrop, in her first title match, is a long shot with odds of 6/1.
A mixed tag team match is also on the card as the grIT couple, Edge and Beth Phoenix, team up to take on the IT couple, The Miz and Maryse. The Hall of Famers husband and wife are 1/5 favorites while Miz and Mrs are 3/1.
The women’s Royal Rumble match winner favorite is currently not even part of the announced list although she is heavily rumored to be there. Ronda Rousey is 4/5 favorite to outlast 30 women and go to WrestleMania while Bianca Belair is second favorite with 5/1 odds to repeat last year’s win. The top five consists of Alexa Bliss at 8/1 and Lita and Rhea Ripley both at 9/1.
And in the men’s Royal Rumble, just like the women’s winner, someone who is not even in the match – yet – is the favorite. Brock Lesnar heads up the list with odds of 9/4, followed by AJ Styles at 3/1, Big E at 6/1, Roman Reigns at 10/1, and Omos at 12/1.
