The semifinals of this year’s WWE King Of The Ring tournament take place next week and the betting odds for the road to the finals have been revealed by Sky Bet.
The first qualifying match takes place on Monday Night RAW, featuring a Triple Threat showdown between Ricochet, Baron Corbin and Samoa Joe.
The Lone Wolf (11/10) is the favorite to win the match, The One And Only (6/4) stands as the second favorite and The Samoan Submission Machine (7/2) enjoys the status of underdog.
It’s fair to say that either Corbin or Ricochet will punch their ticket to the final; Joe doesn’t quite seem to be the guy heading to Clash Of Champions this month.
Per rumors, Corbin could be the potential victor at the Madison Square Garden next week. The bald-headed heel is one of Vince McMahon’s Superstars and there’s absolutely no reason why he shouldn’t be proceeding to the finals given he has been handed way more opportunities in sharp contrast to his peers.
The second semifinal match takes place on SmackDown Live between Elias and Chad Gable.
The Olympian (1/3) is the favorite to secure his passage into the final while The Drifter (9/4) turns out to be the underdog.
Since the beginning of the King Of The Ring tournament, Gable has been berated and belittled by his opponents. Using the hate as motivation, he has shut down critics by defeating Shelton Benjamin in the first round and Andrade in the second round to secure his spot in the semifinals.
WWE has repackaged Gable with a brand new look and attitude, and this contest could likely be the platform for him to shine as a top singles star on the main roster.
As previously reported, WWE brought the tournament back this year with the sole purpose of pushing a particular Superstar and the chosen one is either Corbin or Richochet or Gable.
