In the world of professional wrestling betting odds often serve as a precursor for what might happen at shows as insiders look to make some money from the pre-determined sport. We previously covered the admittedly very early betting favorites for both the men’s and women Royal Rumble matches. Last time around Sasha Banks was the favorite to emerge as the winner of the women’s Royal Rumble but the SmackDown Women’s Champion is unlikely to enter at all. Current Royal Rumble betting odds have Bianca Belair as the favorite to win, a big jump as she wasn’t in the top 5 last time.
Bianca Belair Is The Current Favorite In The Royal Rumble Betting Odds
The EST of the WWE Bianca Belair is coming off of a headlining feud with Bayley. Although Belair walked away with a defeat she proved that she can hang at the top of the division. According to oddschecker Belair is 11/4 to come away with the win. This would see her jump into the title picture for the first time, presumably she would feud with Sasha Banks in a feud that many WWE fans would love to see.
Alexa Bliss Jumps To Second
Alexa Bliss has always remained fairly high in the pecking order as she was in the top 5 last time we covered the Royal Rumble betting odds. This time around she has jumped to second place, thanks in large part to her presence in the marquee feuds on Monday Night RAW alongside The Fiend.
Rhea Ripley Remains A Threat
In third place, Rhea Ripley has an outside shot at walking out as the winner. She’s consistently been highly ranked in the betting odds but with her recent defeat to Raquel Gonzalez at New Year’s Evil it may be time for the former NXT Champion to make an impactful jump to the main roster.
