WWE Royal Rumble 2014

Sky Bet expect Randy Orton to retain his WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Sunday's Royal Rumble.

The Viper will put his strap on the line against John Cena in the Sky Sports Box Office event in Pittsburgh, having defeated the Chain Gang Soldier to claim the belt at the Tables, Ladders and Chairs extravaganza in December.

Orton (1/6) is backed to overcome Cena (7/2), while The New Age Outlaws (4/7) are tipped to end Goldust and Cody Rhodes' (5/4) reign as WWE Tag Team Champions.

In the battle of the gargantuan grapplers, Brock Lesnar (1/10) is favoured against Big Show (11/2) and Sky Bet feel Daniel Bryan (1/3) will win his duel with Wyatt Family leader, Bray Wyatt (9/4).

Bryan's involvement in the Royal Rumble match - a 30-man tussle with guarantees a championship bout at WrestleMania for the winner - has not yet been confirmed by WWE, but the submission specialist is second favourite (5/2) to win the clash.

Six-time world champion Batista (8/11) is expected to power his way to victory, with number-one entrant CM Punk (11/4) and The Shield's Roman Reigns (6/1) slightly behind Bryan in the pecking order.

Big E Langston (20/1), Rey Mysterio (22/1), Dean Ambrose (22/1), Alberto Del Rio (25/1), and The Wyatt Family's Luke Harper (28/1) are next on the list, while big names including Cena, the recently-out-injured Sheamus and The Undertaker - who has not been seen since the spring - are at 33s.

If you fancy plucking an outsider, though, there are options such as Hulk Hogan (40/1), Chris Jericho (80/1), "Stone Cold" Steve Austin (80/1), Shawn Michaels (100/1), and Hornswoggle (100/1).
