Adam Silverstein nailed the winners of the men’s and women’s Royal Rumbles twice.
While much of the sports world is on hold in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, WrestleMania 36 is set to air on April 4 and 5, albeit with several significant changes. Originally scheduled as a one-day event on April 5 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, it will now become the first two-day event for the WWE and will be filmed at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando with no fans in attendance.
Despite the unique environment, WrestleMania 36 odds are still being offered at several sportsbooks, with the latest WWE odds showing Drew McIntyre going off at -400 (risk $400 to return $100) against Brock Lesner (+275, risk $100 to win $275) for the WWE Championship. That’s just one of the matches on the WrestleMania 36 card, and with other household names like John Cena, Roman Reigns, The Undertaker, Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair set to participate, be sure to see the WrestleMania 36 picks and WWE predictions from Adam Silverstein before locking in any 2020 WrestleMania picks of your own.
Silverstein has been covering the WWE for CBS Sports since 2015. In 2018, he nailed the winners of each Royal Rumble: Asuka and Shinsuke Nakamura, and then followed that up with another sweep in 2019, calling Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch to win.
Now, he has turned his attention to the WrestleMania 36 card and locked in strong WWE picks. Head to SportsLine to see them.
Top WrestleMania 36 predictions
Silverstein is backing Rhea Ripley (-250) over Charlotte Flair for the NXT Women’s Championship. Ripley, an Australian pro wrestler, claimed the NXT Women’s Championship in December by defeating Baszler. She’ll put it on the line against Flair, the 2020 Royal Rumble winner and daughter of wrestling legend Ric Flair.
“Ripley has been so well-built as NXT champion that it would be a shame to see a change here, but there is reason to believe it can happen considering Flair’s name value and the way she is often booked,” Silverstein told SportsLine. “Ultimately though, it would be a mistake for WWE to have given NXT such a large presence at Survivor Series and Royal Rumble only to turn around and have one of the brand’s top titles taken by a WWE superstar.”
How to make 2020 WrestleMania picks
Silverstein has made the call on every matchup at WrestleMania 36, and he’s backing multiple plus-money underdogs who could lead to a substantial return. You can see who they are, and all of his WWE picks, right here.
