It doesn't get any better than WrestleMania. 

The Showcase of the Immortals is easily the most anticipated pay-per-view event every year, but with the 30th anniversary of the epic pay-per-view, WWE has taken the show to a whole new level. 

It starts with a stacked Hall of Fame class—The Ultimate Warrior, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Lita, Paul Bearer, Carlos Colon, Mr. T and Razor Ramon—and ends with a stacked card—Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H, a Triple Threat match for the WWE title, The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar, John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt and several other battles that should be scintillating. 

Iconic moments are created at every WrestleMania, and this year's edition from New Orleans, which features the legendary Hulk Hogan as guest host, has the potential to be unforgettable. 

Here's a look at the complete list of odds (courtesy of OddsChecker), predictions and what I believe to be the most intriguing bet of the night.

Intriguing Bet of the Night: Triple H (12-1) over Daniel Bryan

Let's not kid ourselvesDaniel Bryan is going to be in the Triple Threat match with Randy Orton and Batista for the WWE title. There's a reason he has astounding 1-20 odds. He's the most over Superstar in the business, and if he just loses to Triple H and then disappears for the rest of the night, the crowd in New Orleans might riot. 

And wrestling fans from around the country might flock to New Orleans to join in. 

But because it's so obvious he'll be in the main event, WWE Creative may look for, well, a creative way to get him there. 

A double-disqualification where both The Game and Bryan are pushed through to the title match is an idea that has been tossed around, but would it really be surprising if Bryan lost in dirty fashion—perhaps due to interference from Stephanie McMahonand Hogan came out and placed the electrifying Superstar into the main event anyway? 

If I have to make a prediction, I'm going with Bryan. It's going to be difficult for the company to deny him a historic moment—two wins—after his meteoric rise over the past year. 

But considering the underlying circumstances, it's worth it to at least place a small bet on Triple H with the potential to multiply your money by 12.
