The odds come from Jason Simbal from Las Vegas bookmaker CG Technology, via TheBigLead, currently have Triple H as the favorite to walk away with the WWE Championship from the show in Orlando.
The leader of The Authority is a big -110 favorite heading into the Rumble, as many expect him to be the last entrant and the one to throw Reigns over the top rope when it gets down to it.
Simbal’s rationale for installing Hunter as the odds-on favorite over Reigns and Brock Lesnar was that for the past few weeks WWE has been “so intentionally failing to mention him in any context.” This is something the WWE Creative Team typically does before bringing someone into the big picture, in an attempt to make it a shock.
Reigns and Lesnar come in at odds of 2/1 and 5/2, respectively, signaling that they could be big players in the final four or so.
Some other names that stand out are Daniel Bryan being the fourth-favorite at 12/1, despite still not being physically cleared to compete by the WWE's top medical expert after some concussion problems.
Then there's Bray Wyatt at 14/1, who represents a very interesting potential after he and the rest of the Wyatt Family cleaned house on RAW this week, putting themselves in the big picture overall.
If one had to predict the outcome of the match then the most likely looking situation is Triple H eliminating Reigns last to win the title, while Lesnar and the Wyatt's come out of the Rumble feuding heading into WrestleMania 32.
