Wrestling: Sportsbook taking bets for WWE’s Wrestlemania 40

With the NFL season over, a lot of bettors are probably looking for new leagues and sports to bet on. WWE’s Wrestlemania 40 will take place in Philadelphia on April 6 and 7. Bodog is taking bets on a couple of matches right now.

Quick Take

  • Bodog taking bets on a couple of Wrestlemania 40 matches
  • Roman Reigns a huge underdog right now
  • Cody Rhodes the betting favourite to win the WWE Universal Championship at Wrestlemania 40

You can bet on the main event, Cody Rhodes vs Roman Reigns

Bodog is giving their users the opportunity to bet on WWE’s Wrestlemania 40. Wrestlemania is an annual pay-per-view event and WWE’s biggest show of the year. Unlike other sports you can bet on with Bodog, WWE matches are scripted. So the winner is predetermined. If you are looking to bet on Wrestlemania, you are betting on which wrestler you believe the WWE will choose to win the match.

The first match being offered right now is the main event between Cody Rhodes and WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. Rhodes is currently the betting favourite by a huge margin. Rhodes has -500 odds to win the match. Reigns is a huge underdog right now. Reigns has +300 odds to retain his championship. This is a rematch of the Wrestlemania 39 main event. Reigns won that match and retained his title.

A couple of weeks ago, it looked like the main event at Wrestlemania 40 was going to be a match between Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Reigns. The WWE confirmed that Rhodes will be in the main event a little after #WeWantCody trended on X/Twitter. Whether or not Rhodes vs Reigns will change the WWE’s plans is something to consider. Rhodes is the betting favourite, but Rhodes would not even be in the match if the original plan was The Rock vs Reigns. Rhodes has been one of the WWE’s biggest stars since his return at Wrestlemania 38 after leaving AEW.

You can also bet on another title match

The only other match you can bet on right now is the WWE Women’s Championship match. WWE Women’s champ Iyo Sky will defend her title against Bayley. Bayley is also a huge betting favourite ahead of this match. Bayley has -650 odds to win the WWE Women’s Championship at Wrestlemania 40. Sky is a huge underdog. Sky has +350 odds to defeat Bayley and retain her championship.

Sky won the title by defeating Bianca Belair at SummerSlam on Aug. 5, 2023. Bayley earned a title opportunity at Wrestlemania by winning the 2024 Women’s Royal Rumble match. The Women’s World Champion is Rhea Ripley, but Bayley will have a match with Iyo Sky. Bayley is a former Raw Women’s Champion.
