After a successful first night of WrestleMania, it’s time for some betting tips on night two’s slate of matches. Unlike traditional sports betting, wagering on pro wrestling combines knowledge with storyline and expectations. A quick glance at the odds probably reveals exactly what you’d expect them to, with favorites to win having felt that way for much of the ‘Mania buildup. With WrestleMania 37 night one in the books, we take a look at odds for night two (as of Saturday, April 10th) for some of the most compelling matches on the card. Here is part two, night two, of our WrestleMania 37 betting odds preview.

Day Two WrestleMania 37 Betting Odds
Bray Wyatt (-850) vs Randy Orton (+450)
— WWE WrestleMania (@WrestleMania) April 11, 2021
While hopes of a cinematic match (similar to last year’s Bray Wyatt vs John Cena) between these two has seemingly gone out the window, Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt will once again meet at WrestleMania nevertheless. Orton and Wyatt’s The Fiend have been embroiled in a rivalry for months now. Everything seemed to hit a fever pitch when the two met in an Inferno match and Orton burned his opponent alive. Over the ensuing weeks and months, Orton was tormented by the Fiend’s conduit in Alexa Bliss, all leading up to the Fiend’s return and WrestleMania challenge. While it is hard to see where the Fiend will go from here, the odds are pretty favorable toward him winning. Which likely means the character is sticking around for a bit. Take the Fiend here, even if the return on investment isn’t that great.
Natalya and Tamina (-200) vs Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax (+150)
Yesterday, a tag team turmoil match took place to determine the team set to face Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler for the Women’s Tag Team Championship. That match was won by Natalya and Tamina, who have been enjoying somewhat of a recent push. As it would turn out, this win may not have been as random as it seems because odds for this match favor the challengers. Natalya and Tamina have joined as a team focused on showing the rest of the women’s division that they belong at the top. The two generational superstars have laid claim to their spot as foundational pieces to the success the women have achieved over the last few years. Now, they get a shot at some hardware to support it. Go with the favorites here and take Natalya and Tamina to walk away with the gold.
Big E (-125) vs Apollo (-115)
One of the more highly anticipated matches on today’s card pits Intercontinental Champion Big E against his former friend turned rival Apollo Crews. It should be a fantastic bout as, over the last few months, Crews has reinvented himself, embracing a mean streak and new persona in his pursuit of the title. A fighting champion, Big E has given Crews no shortage of opportunities. Though this is the biggest. The odds are so close because it’s easy to see a scenario where either of these two more than capable wrestlers walks away the champion. With Crews coming up short so many times before, it does seem that this will be his time, however. He’s a slight favorite, though this line has moved and continues to do so. That normally points to how the money is coming in. It may be worth continuing to watch this line as the day goes on.
Kevin Owens (-500) vs Sami Zayn (+300)
Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. From the indies to WWE, these two have seen their careers go hand-in-hand. They have battled each other as foes and wrestled together as friends on nearly every major stage. But this year, perhaps surprisingly, marks the first singles match these two will wrestle at WrestleMania. Unlike their most recent bouts, it is Zayn on the heelish side this time around as he continues to peddle outlandish conspiracy theories. After Owens spurned his frenemy, Zayn became aggressive to the point where Owens didn’t want an apology, he wanted to settle things with a match. Every time Zayn and Owens fight, it is electric. And ordinarily, it would seem tough to peg a winner but this is where the Logan Paul factor comes in. Paul is going to corner Zayn but WWE wouldn’t just have him there and not give him something to get involved in. Expect Paul to turn on Zayn at a critical juncture, helping Owens pick up the win. The odds favor this outcome as well.
Asuka (+200) vs Rhea Ripley (-300)
— WWE WrestleMania (@WrestleMania) April 11, 2021
As the Road to WrestleMania began to build, all eyes pointed to a very different Raw Women’s Championship match. But life circumstances necessitated some card subject to change moments and as a result, Rhea Ripley is set for the biggest match of her career on the biggest stage. After losing her NXT Women’s Championship to Charlotte at WrestleMania this year, Raw’s newest superstar has all eyes on taking Asuka’s belt this year. And she is being pegged to do so. Asuka’s latest reign was meant to see her clash with her former tag team partner in Charlotte but now, WWE can build to a Ripley/Charlotte rematch, perhaps at SummerSlam. Take the favorite here. As for the method of victory, pinfall is a big favorite at -600. With a Ripley win, you can bank on that outcome even if it’s not worth much to take the wager.
Riddle (-120) vs Sheamus (-120)
It’s not often you see odds split down the middle like this which just goes to show how evenly matched Sheamus and Riddle are. These two haven’t been rivals for long but there is no doubt this bout will be hard-hitting. After failing in his attempts to capture the world championship, Sheamus made his way into the United States Championship picture to confront Riddle, who has held the title since defeating Lashley for it not long ago. It’s easy to see a scenario where Riddle keeps the title but it’s just as likely Sheamus gets his due. The Celtic Warrior is putting in some of his best work and our advice is to back him to win the title here.
Edge (-170) vs Roman Reigns (+275) vs Daniel Bryan (+300)
One of the most well-built matches on tonight’s card is the championship bout between Edge, Roman Reigns, and Daniel Bryan. And what’s interesting is just how much this line has moved toward Edge over the last 24 hours. While the expected outcome would have Edge winning given today marks 10 years to the day when the Rated R Superstar was forced to retire, the story has been built in such a way that it is possible to see any of the three outcomes. Bryan winning is least likely. While this may indeed be his last WrestleMania, tradition tends to hold that wrestlers go out on their backs. Reigns’ title reign has been a revelation as his heel character has led to some of the best work of his career. But, this is Edge’s time to shine. If you are looking to bet a longshot, consider Reigns as him retaining the title wouldn’t be all that surprising. That said, our pick is for Edge to have his WrestleMania moment. There is no Money in the Bank floating around to complicate things and while Reigns has his backup in Jey Uso, we’re still backing Edge as the favorite. Back him to win by pinfall (-450) as well to pick up a few extra bucks.
