Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns are favored to leave Royal Rumble 2015 victorious and face each other in the main event of WrestleMania 31, but a few other wrestlers have a legitimate chance to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match and the 30-man battle royal. As the first PPV of the year approaches, the betting odds have moved in favor of a few underdogs.
Having only defended his title once, losing to John Cena by disqualification at Night of Champions, Lesnar has held the belt since SummerSlam. Once a 1/3 favorite to win the championship match, his odds have moved to 4/9. Cena, once a 3/1 underdog to win back the belt, has seen his odds move to 17/10. Seth Rollins has 6/1 odds of winning the match, though he could still lose the match and cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase.
Reigns has the same odds to win the Royal Rumble match that Lesnar has to defeat Cena and Rollins. However, he was once a 2/5 favorite. After beating Kane on SmackDown to assure himself of a spot in the match, Daniel Bryan has 13/8 odds to win a spot in the main event of WrestleMania for the second straight year.
Below are betting odds for every match at the 2015 Royal Rumble. All odds are provided by Paddy Power.
