WWE Betting: Online bettors continue to wager money on Conor McGregor in the Royal Rumble odds market

Conor McGregor has plenty on his plate at the minute with his rematch against Dustin Poirier taking place this weekend. However, online bettors believe McGregor could make a shock appearance at the Royal Rumble shortly after his UFC bout.

The Irishman is nowhere near the top of the Royal Rumble odds market, in fact he’s much closer to the bottom, but that’s not stopped people wagering their money on a shock victory this week. Conor McGregor is currently +10000 to win the Royal Rumble with UK bookmakers, which implies he’s only got a 1% of winning. Even with such big odds, McGregor has been the third most wagered fighter in the Royal Rumble odds market this week, accounting for 8% of bets.

Daniel Bryan is the overwhelming favorite to win the Men’s Royal Rumble, with the betting odds suggesting he’s got a 44.4% chance of being victorious. Bryan has also been the most wagered fighter this week, accounting for 24% of wagers placed in the market.

Keith Lee is currently second-favorite in the betting, his odds imply he’s got a 18.2% chance of winning the Royal Rumble. Lee’s also been well supported by online bettors, he’s received just over 17% of bets this week.

We reported last week that Tyson Fury was the third most wagered fighter in the Royal Rumble odds market, however this support has pretty much dried up, Fury has only accounted for 1% of bets this week.

Unfortunately, US residents can’t bet on the Royal Rumble this year, however you can bet on all your favorite sports with the biggest sportsbooks. Sportsbooks like BetMGM and Unibet offer huge welcome offers to new members. Check out the best promotions in your state.
