WWE Elimination Chamber 2022 Betting Odds Released
The six competitors have been confirmed for the WWE Championship match at the Elimination Chamber event, and various online sportsbooks have released odds for the bout which could give a good indication as to who might come out on top.
Royal Rumble winner, Brock Lesnar, is the favorite at +160, having lost the title to Bobby Lashley at the Rumble after interference by Roman Reigns.
It has already been announced that Lesnar and Reigns will meet at WrestleMania just as they did four years ago, and if Unibet’s odds are to be believed, a champion vs champion match is a distinct possibility.
Lashley is also a strong contender at +225, and could be set to defend the WWE title at the biggest event of the year for the second time in as many years.
Also at +225 is Seth Rollins, who last held a singles title in 2019 when he had an 81-day reign as Universal Champion. After being in comparatively insignificant matches at the last two WrestleMania’s, the ‘Visionary’ is perhaps deserving of a main event calibre encounter.
It is rare that the best sports betting sites have as many as five of the Elimination Chamber participants at odds of +450 or less, but those are the exact odds at which AJ Styles and Matt Riddle find themselves.
44-year-old Styles has been out of the title picture since he held the WWE Championship for over a year from November 2017, but after spending more time in the ring than anybody else during the men’s Royal Rumble match (29 minutes) he could be in line for a push.
Riddle, on the other hand, was reportedly considered as the Royal Rumble winner but those claims have since been quashed.
Nonetheless, the former UFC fighter has been a prominent figure in WWE programming in recent months and it would not be a surprise to see him thrust into an even bigger role.
The Elimination Chamber event might not quite be the time or place for Riddle to win his first WWE Championship, and he is incidentally the second-favorite behind Damian Priest to win the Money in the Bank match in July.
Austin Theory is the only real outsider in Jeddah, and with odds of +1500 you would have to assume he is not in the running.
Having already shared television time with Mr McMahon and feuded with Finn Balor since being drafted to Raw in October, Austin’s win over Kevin Owens to qualify for this title match was another big step in the right direction, and surely championships will come at some point.
Becky Lynch vs Lita is the other confirmed match for the event in Saudi Arabia at this point, but many more high-profile bouts are expected to be added to the first regular WWE annual event to take place in the country.
There are no more PPV-style shows taking place between Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania, so you can perhaps expect any significant title changes to occur here and other storylines to be advanced as well.
