Betting Odds For The Royal Rumble

Post by Bob-O » Jan 25th, '20, 10:11


One of the most exciting WWE events of the year is the annual Royal Rumble that takes place this Sunday night at Minute Maid Park in Houston. This event kicks off the road to WrestleMania with the winner of both the men’s and women’s Royal Rumbles getting the opportunity to challenge for a belt on the sport’s biggest stage in April.

Three of the four major championships will be on the line. Will there be new champions or will the champs remain so after the PPV? I have a breakdown and a pick for each of the title fights as well as the two Royal Rumbles.

‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt (C) vs Daniel Bryan

After winning the Universal Championship against Seth Rollins at Crown Jewel, Wyatt defended his title once already against Daniel Bryan at Survivor Series. The two will play back this bout at the Royal Rumble in a strap match where the wrestlers will be tethered to each other and will need to touch all four ring posts to win.

The Fiend is much bigger than Bryan and should have a significant advantage in a strap match. His dual characters with “The Fiend” and “Firefly Fun House” are getting a lot of push from the WWE brass and I can’t see them killing the momentum, so I like Bray Wyatt to remain champion.
Prediction: Bray Wyatt (-600)
Universal Championship - 2020 WWE Royal Rumble
Bray Wyatt -600
Daniel Bryan +350
Odds as of Jan. 22 at Bovada

Becky Lynch (C) vs Asuka

Asuka, the former SmackDown women’s champion, has a chance to claim the Raw women’s championship against “The Man” Becky Lynch. The Japanese wrestler has already scored a few victories over Lynch and appears to have the mental edge.

Although Lynch has never secured a win over the Empress of Tomorrow, I think she will overcome that mountain at Royal Rumble. Asuka is already a tag-team titleholder and I find it hard to see her having a world championship as well.

Prediction: Becky Lynch (-290)

Raw Women’s Championship - 2020 WWE Royal Rumble
Becky Lynch -290
Asuka +190
Odds as of Jan. 22 at Bovada

Bayley (C) vs Lacey Evans

All the momentum is behind the former U.S. marine, Evans, heading into her SmackDown women’s championship match with Bayley. The champion and Sasha Banks have really played up the heel role by attacking Evans and her daughter, leaving fans begging for Evans to become the champion.

Evans burst onto the scene in 2019, getting into a feud with Becky Lynch shortly after WrestleMania. She and Natalya also became the first female wrestlers to wrestle in Saudi Arabia at Crown Jewel in October. Her stock couldn’t be any higher and having already earned a couple of wins over Bayley, I think the best bet is on the underdog Lacey Evans for this match.

Prediction: Lacey Evans (+150)

SmackDown Women’s Championship - 2020 WWE Royal Rumble
Bayley -200
Lacey Evans +150
Odds as of Jan. 22 at Bovada

Men’s Royal Rumble Match

It is a little surprising to see Brock Lesnar second on the oddsboard at +200 as he is the first entrant into the Rumble and he isn’t exactly well-known for extended matches. There has been a recent push on Drew McIntyre since he returned to action in late October. Seeing the Scottish Psychopath third on the oddsboard suggests there’s a good chance he punches his ticket to WrestleMania.

Prediction: Drew McIntyre (+450)

2020 WWE Men’s Royal Rumble
Roman Reigns -200
Brock Lesnar +200
Drew McIntyre +450
Cain Velasquez +550
CM Punk +600

Women’s Royal Rumble Match

I think there are two good betting options for the women’s Royal Rumble match. In what has flown under the radar a little bit with other matches getting more eyes, the rumble could have a surprising return of Ronda Rousey, who hasn’t been in action since WrestleMania last year. Rousey had the longest reign as the Raw women’s champion, her name has been appearing in the public more often recently and what a perfect time to return to the place where she made her debut two years ago. At +1000 she is providing tremendous value.

The second person I like to win the women’s rumble is Charlotte Flair at +200. Daughter of Hall of Famer Ric Flair, The Queen has accomplished almost everything there is to do in the wrestling world, except win the Royal Rumble. If she was able to win this year, she would earn a shot at her 11th world championship – just five shy of her old man.

Prediction: Charlotte Flair (+200) or Ronda Rousey (+1000)

Shayna Baszler -300
Charlotte Flair +200
Sasha Banks +800
Ronda Rousey +1000

Becky Lynch +3000
Nikki Cross +3000
Alexa Bliss +3500

At the risk of losing just a few dollars or gaining quite a few dollars, I might throw a couple of bucks on Lashley and Io Shirai to make the show more interesting...

For the sake of no list is ever a "good" list, I'm chuckling over here seeing that Akam has odds but Rezar does not.

All betters should have just thrown everything on the constant WWE Favorites/top guys and women. Nothing ever changes and it's the safest bet you could ever go with lol.
When they come, they'll come at what you love.
