With Elimination Chamber a few hours away, the betting odds have settled and are not expected to change significantly based on historical trends, although the odds remain available even during the event, usually until right before the individual matches themselves have started.
These odds suggest that all current champions will retain their titles, including Daniel Bryan being favored at -570 to hold onto the WWE Championship against 5 challengers in the chamber and Smackdown Tag Team Champions, Shane McMahon & The Miz being able to overcome The Usos. The handicap match sees Bobby Lashley defending the Intercontinental Championship successfully with partner and manager Lio Rush as both wrestle Finn Balor. The odds are close with Lashley and Rush favored at -140 for the final ruling, earlier in the week Balor was a slight favorite so these odds have flipped. Buddy Murphy has strong odds defending the Cruiserweight Championship against Akira Tozawa.
Something interesting is going on with the Raw Women’s Championship concerning the “initial ruling” and “end of broadcast ruling” variance. Ronda Rousey is favored to successfully retain against Ruby Riott in both sets of odds, however the difference of -4500 for the initial result compared to -2000 line for the final result is definitely worth noting. Also of interest, Rousey’s Wrestlemania opponent, Charlotte will be at ringside for this match, so a “Dusty Finish” could be in the works.
Bayley and Sasha Banks are favored to win the first ever WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship inside the chamber with 5 other teams with Nia Jax and Tamina being the next most likely to win, followed by The Riott Squad, all teams from Raw. The 3 Smackdown teams are the least likely to become the champions with Naomi & Carmella having the worst odds. In a No DQ match, Braun Strowman is favored to defeat Baron Corbin.
