The opening odds have been set for both the Raw and Smackdown Championships and sees both sets of challengers as favorites, though not by much. In both cases, this does not necessarily indicate any championships changing hands due to the infamous “champion’s advantage” stipulation that forbids a title switch due to a count out or disqualification outcome.
On the Raw side of the tag team division it is Cesaro and Sheamus(The Bar) who are favored to win at -150. The Bar will be challenging Seth Rollings and Jason Jordan, who hold the titles currently and have odds of +100, an even bet. This is extremely close currently.
On the Smackdown end, the Champions are also not the team that is favored to win. The Usos, who are the current champions, have odds of +120 making them the slightest of underdogs. Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin, the challengers, are favored at -162 and this will be a classic two out of three falls match.
As for the rest of the card, there have been no major changes overnight. Brock Lesnar is still favored to retain the Universal Championship Triple Threat Match, AJ Styles is still the favorite in the Handicap Match for the WWE Championship and both Shinsuke Nakamura and Ronda Rousey are projected to win the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble Matches respectively. UPDATE: Asuka is once again most favored to win the Women’s Royal Rumble, once again being the most favored to win it all.
As usual, the most accurate odds in regards to final outcomes will be available the day of the Royal Rumble itself.
