• Betting Odds For Brock Lesnar vs. Finn Balor Revealed
Sky Bet has released betting odds for the Universal Championship match between Brock Lesnar and Finn Balor at Royal Rumble 2019 and Lesnar is currently a favorite to retain the Title with odds of 2/7, while Balor has odds of 5/2.
As we noted earlier, Dave Meltzer reported that Brock Lesnar vs. Finn Balor at Royal Rumble 2019 was “always the plan” because Vince McMahon realised it’s not a good idea for Brock to defeat Strowman once again (as plan is for Lesnar to head into WrestleMania 35 as the Universal Champion).
So Vince decided to put Balor in the match against Lesnar, as he feels Balor getting a match against Brock and losing would still be good for him (as it puts him back in the main event picture for a while).
