The 2017 Royal Rumble odds seem to be changing with each passing week. Last week, The Undertaker was the odds-on favorite to win WWE’s annual 30-man match, and the week before, the odds suggested that Goldberg would win the Rumble, and go on to main event WrestleMania 33. But now, the odds are listing someone else as the favorite to earn a title match at WWE’s biggest show of the year.

According to Sky Bet, Braun Strowman is now favored to win this year’s Royal Rumble match, which means that we’ll probably see him face Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 33.

Last month, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that WWE was thinking about doing a Reigns vs. Strowman match on April 2, but at the time, it didn’t look like it’d be for the Universal Championship. But, now things have changed, and the ex-Wyatt Family member could be in the title picture after the Royal Rumble.

On Monday, WWE teased a Strowman vs. Brock Lesnar match, but that match probably won’t happen until SummerSlam, if it happens at all.


The latest Royal Rumble odds also had Samoa Joe as one of the favorites, right behind Strowman. As of this writing, Joe hasn’t officially entered the Rumble match, but he’ll probably be one of the surprise entrants.
