As seen on Sky Bet, the betting odds for Ronda Rousey vs Ruby Riott at WWE Elimination Chamber have been released.
This match up has been brewing for a few weeks now, but there’s no point in pretending like fans don’t ‘think’ they know how it’s going to go. We’ve slipped into the habit of guessing and predicting how we think WWE is going to book things, and as a result, a lot of fans are already writing this match off as a conclusive win for one of the competitors.
If you’re aware of which one we’re talking about, then you’ll probably know what’s coming before we’ve even told you the betting odds.
Ronda Rousey is an absolutely massive 1/50 favourite to retain her Raw Women’s Championship, which is the largest swing in favour of one superstar since we’ve started covering the odds. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Riott Squad leader Ruby Riott is a 12/1 underdog.
The expectation is that Rousey will go on to defend her title against Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 35, which makes you wonder why WWE are even booking her in this match in the first place. You could argue that there’s a schedule to keep, but most members of the WWE Universe are already convinced that Ronda will win.
It’ll be good for Riott to get the experience of being in a title match, but in terms of her future, an appearance in the yet to be announced Women’s Battle Royal at Mania makes more sense.
