Common WWE Royal Rumble Questions:

What is the best strategy for betting the Royal Rumble winner?

Over the past six years, sadly, the best strategy has been to bet the favorite heading into the match.

2013: John Cena wins as the favourite at -175 odds.
2014: Batista wins as the favourite at -210 odds.
2015: Roman Reigns wins as the favourite at -165 odds.
2016: Triple H wins as the favourite at +105 odds.
2017: Randy Orton wins as the favourite at +150 odds.
2018: Shinsuke Nakamura wins as the favourite at +100 odds. Asuka wins as the favorite at +125 odds.
2019: Seth Rollins wins as favourite at -110. (Becky was 2nd favourite for the Women’s Royal Rumble at +120)

The WWE often has marketing materials out with the top matches at WrestleMania which can leak some information on the potential Royal Rumble winner. With the two matches and multiple titles, the WWE can switch things up, but as of late that hasn’t been the case.

The good news is that +100 and +125 are still pretty good odds.

That said, WWE has been known to throw a curveball on things. At the 2020 Royal Rumble, Roman Reigns at -150 and Shayna Baszler at -250 both went into the event as huge favorites to win the match. The WrestleMania card that leaked had both of them in the main event title matches and it seemed like they would for sure when this match and take those spots at WrestleMania.

On the day of the event, WWE changed their minds and two different people won. Drew McIntyre won the match for the men and he was a +500 underdog heading into the match. The Women’s Royal Rumble match saw another +500 winner with Charlotte Flair. As a whole, betting on favorites still pays very well, but it is not always a lock.

Many of those wrestlers are still active today so it is always possible that one of them could tie Stone Cold’s mark.

Is Cain Velasquez in the 2020 Royal Rumble?

In an interview with the Sun newspaper in the UK, he alluded that he was. However this hasn’t been confirmed by WWE.

Who are the favourites for the 2020 Royal Rumble? What are the Royal Rumble 2020 Betting Odds?

The WWE Royal Rumble is an annual WWE event that is filled with matches, highlighted by the Royal Rumble match itself. In the Royal Rumble match, 30 people fight to win the match by throwing each other over the top rope. The match starts with two wrestlers and a new one enters every two minutes until there is only one person left.

How To Bet WWE:

BetOnline: They’re actually hidden away a bit. You can find them under “Game Props”, then click on “Wrestling”.

5Dimes Sportsbook: While the odds will typically be posted on the front page, the best way to actually bet them is to log-in and then find “WWE” or “Pro Wrestling” from the Other Sports tab.

888: The wrestling bets are not easy to find here, unfortunately. Your best bet is to go into the search bar at the top of the page and type “WWE”.

WWE Royal Rumble Betting Strategy:

As we laid out above, betting on the favorite to win the Royal Rumble is typically the best strategy. Of course, with two brands and two major titles there is always a chance that they can pull a fast one on you. That means that the best strategy is to go big on the favorite, but then also bet on a small underdog with chances to win. This way you are hedging your bet, while also covering the most likely winner.
