Cena: Rumble favourite

Cena: Rumble favourite

John Cena has been installed as the favourite by Sky Bet to win the 2013 Royal Rumble.

Cena, victorious in the 30-man contest in 2008, holds odds of 8/11 to prevail in Phoenix, Arizona on Sunday evening, but is closely followed by Ryback (3/1), who has become a dominating presence in the WWE since making his debut in April.

Randy Orton is a 6/1 shout to win the match and earn a guaranteed WWE or World Heavyweight Title opportunity at WrestleMania 29, as is Dolph Ziggler, despite the fact the Showoff will enter the match as either the first or second competitor.

2012 Rumble champion Sheamus is at 10/1, while The Rock - who will face CM Punk for the WWE Championship on the same card - The Miz, Brock Lesnar and the Undertaker - who has appeared just once since his epic match with Triple H at last year's WrestleMania - are at 16s.

Outsider

Shield members Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns have each been priced at 40/1, alongside Wade Barrett, Kane and Chris Jericho, while former WWE grapplers MVP and Shelton Benamin have been handed odds of 50 and 66/1 respectively to make a winning return.

Plus, if you fancy taking a punt on an outsider, you can opt for 1997 and '98 Rumble winner Stone Cold Steve Austin (100/1), who last wrestled in 2003, in a losing effort against The Rock at WrestleMania 19.

Sky Bet have also produced odds for the night's other match-ups, making The Rock (1/3) favourite to defeat CM Punk (9/4) and seize the WWE Title for the 10th time in his career, and backing Alberto Del Rio (1/8) to keep hold of his World Heavyweight Championship against Big Show (9/2).

However, they expect Daniel Bryan and Kane (4/1), collectively known as Team Hell No, to lose their WWE Tag Team straps to Team Rhodes Scholars pairing Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow (1/7).
