WWE Royal Rumble Odds: Big E and Rhea Ripley early favourites

by James Smith

Despite only being at the half-way mark of the year, there is already the opportunity for wrestling fans to place bets on who they think will win next year’s Royal Rumble. Always one of the standout fixtures on the wrestling calendar each year, the 2022 Royal Rumble will take place at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, with it being the first time the venue has hosted the event.

It will be the 35th annual Royal Rumble in the history of the WWE, with the tradition beginning all the way back in 1988 when Hacksaw Jim Duggan won the inaugural event at the Copps Coliseum. The event had always been exclusively for male competitors only, but a women’s Royal Rumble debuted in 2018 and has now become tradition alongside the men’s version of the free-for-all.

Markets have opened for punters to bet on the winner of the 2022 Royal Rumble already and such ante-post bets will generally give you better odds than what you may see closer to the event. Before you look to place a bet on the winner, be sure to check out Max Free Bets first. Their site features the very best betting offers and free bets promotions from a range of bookmakers, giving you the best value when betting online. Use their one-stop shop services to find the best place to place your Royal Rumble bets in advance of the event.

In 2021, Edge and Bianca Belair won the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble respectively, with it being the second time the former has won the event in his career. As such, both are big outsiders to repeat their successes 12 months on from the last event. No wrestler has won the Royal Rumble in back-to-back years since Shawn Michaels in 1995 and 1996, making this a bet that many will likely avoid. Big E is the current betting favourite from the Men’s selections, while Rhea Ripley is the Women’s favourite.

You should always expect the unexpected with the Royal Rumble and that is reflected in the list of contenders that are featured in the odds. You can find John Cena, The Rock and even Conor McGregor and Tyson Fury in the list of potential competitors. Below, we have picked out featured odds for both the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble.
