With this year's WWE King of the Ring tournament kicking off on Monday night's episode of WWE RAW and continuing on tonight's WWE SmackDown LIVE show, several online betting websites have released odds.
The folks at BetWrestling.com sent along the following notes and opening lines for the 2019 King of the Ring tournament:
The odds makers at William Hill have set the betting odds for tonight's King of the Ring on WWE RAW. It is rare that odds are set for WWE cable broadcasts, usually due to match cards not being announced until the show itself. The have been limited instances of RAW or SmackDown LIVE odds and this would be one of them. Instead of the individual matches that have been announced having lines, the eventual winner of the entire tournament is what can be wagered on.
Traditionally, this tournament is won by a heel, so it is no surprise that the best odds are currently held by Drew McIntyre. The second most likely to win according to the odds is Baron Corbin, another heel. No participant is listed as a “favorite” however. This is because with sixteen participants the chances of any one specific performer being a lock is unlikely. We see this often with multi-person matches, especially the Royal Rumble and Battle Royal Matches.
Drew McIntyre +250
Baron Corbin +300
Kevin Owens +450
Samoa Joe +1200
Buddy Murphy +1600
The Miz +2000
Cedric Alexander +2000
Sami Zayn +5000
Chad Gable +6600
Apollo Crews +10000
Shelton Benjamin +10000
