This one is a really tough call for me. Marvel's own databases have repeatedly called Odin perhaps the mightiest mythological god still active today, in Asgard or elsewhere. But as I mentioned on Dr. Strange's last tournament thread, outmaneuvering more powerful supernatural entities is Strange's stock in trade. His sorcerous skill and shrewd insights usually let him find an exploitable physical or mental weakness in his foes. OTOH Odin is a cunning and subtle old god, very hard to out-think or catch off guard. He's also a powerful physical combatant, a level Strange rarely fights on. Steven is a skilled martial artist, but that's not his strongest suit.

 

If the fight were taking place in Asgard the outcome would be a foregone conclusion. Here in Subterranea the setting favors neither combatant. Taking all factors into account, I would still give it to Odin.

Odin. Unlike Zeus, Odin isn't really bothered by location - he is the all-father, and that's that. And don't forget, he gave his eye for wisdom - tricking him is all but impossible (only Loki has truly managed it). Strange can maneuver like anyone, but he'll still end up impaled by Gungnir
