The Royal Rumble PPV Event is less than two weeks away and the odds on favorite for the Men’s Royal Rumble Match has been changing for the past few weeks. The most surprising is that Daniel Bryan’s odds of winning has been skyrocketing over the past few weeks.
Bryan went from not being in the top 10 of the most favored participants in late December to being tied as the sixth biggest favorite in the match earlier this week. The latest odds have now Bryan tied with Dolph Ziggler as the third biggest favorite at 4/1. Shinsuke Nakamura remains the biggest favorite for the match at 6/4, followed by Roman Reigns at 5/2.
It should be noted that the smart money is not always accurate. Days before last year’s Men’s Royal Rumble Match, eventual winner Randy Orton was the fourth biggest favorite to win, while The Undertaker, Goldberg and Braun Strowman were the top three, in that order. Once the smart money came in before the show, Orton became an overwhelming favorite.
Below are the current top 10 favorite to win this year’s Men’s Royal Royal Match:
1) Shinsuke Nakamura (6/4)
2) Roman Reigns (5/2)
3) Daniel Bryan & Dolph Ziggler (4/1)
5) John Cena (9/2)
6) Braun Strowman (11/2)
7) Finn Balor (7/1)
8) Randy Orton & Baron Corbin (10/1)
10) Seth Rollins (16/1)
