WWE News: Goldberg is now a favourite to win the Royal Rumble

Strowman is also heavily favoured to win the PPV.

Could Goldberg win the Rumble?

It’s been confirmed that WCW legend Goldberg will compete in the 30-man Royal Rumble on Sunday, Jan 29th. This will be the 50-year old Superstar’s second appearance in the main event, with the other coming back in 2004.

Before his inclusion was announced, the Superstar was a 16/1 shot to win the Rumble, however, bookmakers have reacted to the news and installed Goldberg as the favourite at 2/1. That said, his odds vary, only some bookmakers have him at 2/1, whereas the majority of others range from 5/2 to 4/1.

There is still one operator who refuses to install Goldberg as one of the main contenders and has priced him at 12/1. Only 9% of bets placed via Oddschecker this weekend were on Goldberg winning the Royal Rumble.

Despite Braun Strowman’s odds drifting from 2/1 to 4/1 this weekend, he’s been the popular pick with Oddschecker users. Just under 15% of bets have been placed on the former member of the Wyatt Family.
