Royal Rumble Betting

Paddy Power have yet to put up odds for the royal rumble - perhaps they have chosen not to do bets on WWE events anymore or perhaps they are simply late to put them up.
However, Boylesports have put royal rumble betting up and there are some really strange odds...


Firstly, why are Team Rhodes Scholars so definitive favourites to win? I mean I would have bet for them to win persoanlly but i expected them to be the underdogs or at least for the odds to be close. They are the same odds as Del Rio winning, which by the way, is pretty much a guaranteed bet. There's no way del rio is losing the title already and with it being a last man standing match he can't lose the match (but retain the title) to disqualification or count out so a big lump on it at 1/7 would be a safe bet in my opinion.

Punk/Rock odds seem expected to me, with it being fairly close but Rock being the favourite.

Cena's favourite to win the rumble at 8/11 but what does shock me is how far down Wade Barret is. I mean I know he is Intercontinetal champion and he is unlikely to win the rumble but he is at 66/1 odds and lower odds than MVP. I repeat that - Wade Barret is less likely to win the rumble than MVP!

SKyBet also has their odds up.

[EDIT: the odds have quite literally just changed for Cena as i posted this. he is now a 4/5 favourite]
