Which of these four men will scale the ladder and grab the WWE Intercontinental Championship Friday?

What's the story?

Bet Wrestling provided Wrestling Inc. with the latest odds for this Friday's Greatest Royal Rumble event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Among all of the odds listed for each of the ten matches on the card, there is one title that the bettors are predicting will change hands.

In case you didn't know...

Wrestling Inc. provided an explanation of how to read the odds below:

A brief explanation of how to read these odds easily – The minus sign represents the favorite while the plus sign indicates an underdog. The number after the plus or minus tells us how much of an underdog or favorite that particular competitor is.

The heart of the matter...

The only title that the betting odds has changed hands at Friday's Greatest Royal Rumble event is the WWE Universal Championship. Roman Reigns is listed at -300 compared to Brock Lesnar at +225.

In the Greatest Royal Rumble Match, Braun Strowman is listed as the favourite at +105. Daniel Bryan has the second best odds at +220 followed by Baron Corbin at +700 and Chris Jericho at +950.

Take a look at the odds for the rest of the card below:

WWE Championship


AJ Styles (c) -180 vs Shinsuke Nakamura +140

WWE Intercontinental Championship – Ladder Match

Seth Rollins (c) -300 vs The Miz +485 vs Samoa Joe +800 vs Finn Balor +800

WWE United States Championship

Jeff Hardy (c) -155 vs Jinder Mahal +115

Raw Tag Team Championship

Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy -1050 vs Cesaro and Sheamus +550

Smackdown Tag Team Championship

The Bludgeon Brothers (c) -310 vs The Usos +230

WWE Cruiserweight Championship

Cedric Alexander (c) -475 vs Kalisto +325

First Match In Eight Years

John Cena -230 vs Triple H +170

Casket Match

The Undertaker -900 vs Rusev +500

Of these betting odds, the overwhelming favourites are Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy considering The Bar is now on SmackDown Live and is unlikely to win back the WWE Raw Tag Team Championships and move back to the red brand.

The next biggest favourite is The Undertaker in the Casket Match against Rusev. Though Rusev Day is very popular with the WWE Universe, Rusev has not received a major push because of it; therefore, is not seen as a threat to defeat The Undertaker who only wrestles a couple of matches per year.

What's next?

The Greatest Royal Rumble is less than 24 hours away when it takes place live from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on April 27th. The Kickoff Show will begin at 11 a.m. central, followed by the main card at 12 p.m. central on the WWE Network.

Author's take...

None of the odds truly shock me and follow my predictions on the Greatest Royal Rumble event for the most part.

The only odds I am going against would be Triple H defeating John Cena because I think Cena will still be shell-shocked after losing to The Undertaker at WrestleMania in three minutes.

I'm also predicting two more title changes. I think Shinsuke Nakamura defeats AJ Styles; while Finn Balor will win the ladder match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship.
