The biggest event in professional wrestling is set to take place at MetLife Stadium on April 7 with WrestleMania 29.
Often described as the Super Bowl of wrestling, WrestleMania is the WWE’s most important Pay-Per-View, and expected to surpass over one million buys. Much like the Super Bowl, fans can gamble on the event.
The results for WrestleMania 2013 may be predetermined, but fans can still wager on each match. Since most matches seem to be predictable, almost every WWE superstar that is expected to win is a very heavy favorite.
In the three main events, the betting odds have The Rock, Brock Lesnar and CM Punk as big underdogs. John Cena and Triple H are both expected to get revenge in their rematches, while the Undertaker’s streak of 20-0 at WrestleMania makes him the biggest favorite on the entire match card.
The one match that doesn’t seem to be predictable is the bout for the Tag Team Championship. For both Team Hell No (Kane & Daniel Bryan) and the team of Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston, gamblers must risk more money than what they would potentially win.
Outside of the main events, Ryback seems to be the most likely wrestler to leave WrestleMania 29 with a victory. He has yet to beat a WWE superstar at a PPV, and seems due to pick up a win.
