Early Betting Odds For WWE's 'Greatest Royal Rumble' Event

Some interesting favorites two weeks away from the super-show.

On Friday April 27th WWE will present its 'Greatest Royal Rumble' event from King Abdullah Sports City's King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The special will air on the WWE Network and currently has ten matches slated for the show including two singles matches, several championship bouts and a 50-man Royal Rumble match.

BetWrestling.com has released early betting odds for the matches that have been made official for the event in the following press release:

"Early Odds have emerged via SkyBet for the Greatest Royal Rumble, being held in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on April 27 and will be broadcast on the WWE Network. In addition to the 50 Man Rumble, The Universal and Intercontinental title matches both have odds set. The current top favorability in the Rumble is with Braun Strowman. The least most favored is Strowman’s former tag team partner Nicholas, where $100 would win $10000. Nicholas, of course, is not booked at this event and this wager is simply an amusing novelty. Other wrestlers with better than average odds include Bobby Lashley, Daniel Bryan, Rey Mysterio and Elias.

Also projected is a major title change in the steel cage match between Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. The brevity of Lesnar’s new contract is the presumable driver of Roman being the favorite. In the IC ladder match the Champion, Seth Rollins, is the favorite right now, but only by a thin margin. The Miz has the next best chances to win, followed by Finn Balor and Samoa Joe.

A quick explanation on reading the moneyline betting odds below is actually very simple to understand. The minus signs indicate the favorite and the plus signs represent the underdogs. The number after the plus or minus tells us how favorable or unfavorable the competitors are. In the case of the Royal Rumble, all choices are listed as underdogs, but some have more favorable odds than others."
