WWE Betting: Daniel Bryan is the favorite in the Royal Rumble Odds market but bettors are chancing much juicier options
The Royal Rumble is one of the most entertaining nights on the sports calendar. Regardless of your opinions of the WWE, it’s impossible not to be enticed by 30 huge men trying to throw each other out of a ring. It really is quality viewing.
