WWE Royal Rumble: Sportsbook Bovada reveals their favourites


It is a well-established tradition that the ‘Road to WrestleMania’ begins at the Royal Rumble with the winners of the titular matches earning a spot on the card on the grandest stage of them all.

WWE Royal Rumble: Who might win

WWE is classed as sports entertainment and while the outcome of these matches is largely predetermined, exactly who the winner will be is a closely guarded secret and draws more than the odd punt.

The best indicators of who may win a Royal Rumble are who the WWE have chosen to ‘push’ in the months ahead of the event with a curveball often thrown in when a big name star returns. In 2008 John Cena shocked the WWE Universe when he returned from injury earlier than expected and won the Rumble match.

Based on the available information and prevailing attitudes within the WWE, leading online sportsbook Bovada have determined their favourites to win the match.

The shortest odds available have been pinned on one man on a newfound singles charge in Big E (+500) and another superstar who made his return at the 2020 Rumble and is rumoured to be set for a big push on the road to Wrestlemania in Edge (+500).

Brock Lesnar remains in contractual limbo but that hasn’t kept the Beast from being made one of the favoured possible entrants. Lesnar opens at +800, despite his absence from WWE programming since mid-2020.

For the women’s match, Rhea Ripley is made favourite (+700), while MMA mavens Ronda Rousey (+750) and Shayna Bazler (+800) are also possible winners with a high likelihood of success. 

Alexa Bliss (+1000) and Sasha Banks (+1000) have been the stars of the women’s division in 2020 and could go on to the showcase of the immortals. 

The long shots

Dark horse candidates for the men’s match include former WWE champion and UFC fighter CM Punk (+2000), heavyweight boxing champion and one-time WWE competitor Tyson Fury (+5000), former UFC double champion Conor McGregor (+10000), and the most electrifying man in all of entertainment The Rock (+1400).

Wildcard longshots include the recently released Zelina Vega (+10000) along with Paige (+1600), Kairi Sane (+2500) and the company’s Chief Brand Officer and former women’s champion Stephanie McMahon (+15000).
