Shinsuke Nakamura and Ronda Rousey remain favorites to win the real battles
WWE will hold its Royal Rumble 2018 event on January 28, from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. For this event, there will be for the first time two Royal Rumble matches, one male and one female. Betting houses keep updating and pointing to their favorites for these bouts next month.
Several betting sites like PaddyPower continue to reveal their favorites to win in these matches. The betting website points to AJ Styles and Brock Lesnar as current favorites to win at Royal Rumble and retains their titles. In this way, both champions would continue with the stories that would be developed for them on their way to WrestleMania 34.
For the women’s Royal Rumble, the change that happened in recent days, in which the former NXT champion, Asuka, surpassed the UFC fighter, Ronda Rousey, was highlighted. However, Ronda Rousey has again surpassed Asuka as favorite. Although there have been reports that the UFC fighter may not be present at the event and that sources close to Rousey have confirmed that there is nothing signed with WWE, the bookmakers see more likely a victory for Ronda.
As for the men’s Royal Rumble, Roman Reigns beat John Cena in the last update, however, right now Shinsuke Nakamura is the favorite to win the match. WWE would plan to give the victory to a SmackDwn Live fighter, with the RAW fighters the opportunity to continue their stories in the 2018 Elimination Chamber. Bets on surprise appearances and more eliminations are also included. As for eliminations, they have only been published about the fighters and Braun Strowman is currently the favorite.

For those of you who are not familiar with the American betting system here is a small explanation: in case someone bet $ 1 for someone not favorite like Kane, it would take $ 10 of profit. On the other hand, if someone bet $ 11 on a win from Brock Lesnar, he would take 4 if he won. It should be noted that the bets until the day of the event can vary a lot,
