Odds as of Feb. 17
Rousey and Naomi vs Flair and Deville Odds
It was just two weeks ago that Ronda Rousey officially declared that she intends to challenge Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 38. This tag team match will serve as a preview of that championship clash as well as feature the latest chapter in the ongoing Naomi vs. Sonya Deville feud.
All signs point to Rousey walking out of WrestleMania as SmackDown Women’s champion and Naomi finally giving Deville her comeuppance on that same show. Thus, it makes sense for the heel duo of Deville and Flair to win before then to give them a necessary momentum boost.
Odds are favoring Rousey and Naomi to pick up the victory at -425, but it’s far from a guarantee. There is money in siding with Flair and Deville, but either way, the unpredictability surrounding the outcome will surely make this match more interesting.
Raw Women’s Championship Odds
Becky Lynch has run rampant over WWE’s women’s division for the better part of the past three years and has a title defense of the Raw Women’s Championship at WrestleMania in her sights. She’ll first have to defeat Lita at Elimination Chamber, and based on the odds, it’s extremely unlikely Lita emerges victorious as champion.
Big Time Becks is the odds-on favorite at -1500 and rightfully so. Although Lita being back has added excitement to Raw’s women’s division, Lynch has held the title for this long and should be the defending champion come WrestleMania.
As a first-time-ever encounter, it should be an entertaining affair. Fans don’t see the WWE Hall of Famer as a true threat to the title due to the end result being so predictable, but that doesn’t mean she can’t have a strong showing in defeat.
Universal Championship Betting Outlook
Similar to Lynch, Roman Reigns has been virtually unstoppable as Universal champion, having held the title since August 2020. The reign he’s embarked on with it has been nothing short of historic, but Goldberg stands in his way of making it to his second straight WrestleMania with the title.
Looking at the odds, it should be a slam dunk that Reigns comes out on top over Goldberg, but Goldberg beating Reigns for the belt is a bit more plausible than Lita beating Lynch. As obvious of an outcome as it is, WWE has been known in the past to swerve the audience simply for the sake of doing so and that could be the case here as well.
Reigns winning is the best bet, of course, but considering Goldberg has left Saudi Arabia in the past as Universal champion when no one expected him to, it isn’t completely far-fetched to think WWE could have him defy the odds and end Reigns’ run, especially if Brock Lesnar makes his presence felt in some form or fashion.
WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Best Bet
As previously noted, Reigns vs. Lesnar is a lock for WrestleMania, and as it currently stands, it will be contested for the Universal Championship. However, there’s a real possibility that it will be a Winner Take All match if Lesnar leaves Elimination Chamber with the WWE Championship.
Lesnar is the favorite in the men’s Chamber going into Saturday, which makes storyline sense given his level of dominance. The only other person that comes close is current WWE champion Bobby Lashley at +175, and although several champs have emerged from Elimination Chamber with their titles intact before, Lashley will likely prove to be the exception.
The Beast was already pinned at Royal Rumble and it’s strange to think he’d be put in the Chamber if he wasn’t going to win it. Beyond Lashley, no one else involved stands as much of a chance, making Lesnar the smartest choice to put money on.
