Seth Rollins’ position as the favorite is likely due to his previous success in WWE and his established reputation as a top-tier wrestler. Cody Rhodes’ odds may be attributed to his recent success outside of WWE.

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn’s shared odds may be due to their close working relationship as the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions, while Drew McIntyre’s high odds could be due to his recent successful title reigns in WWE.

As the event approaches, it will be interesting to see how the betting odds change and who will ultimately be crowned the first WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
