I think the regexp above is not correct. It's missing a backward slash
after ODH (and contains an redundant set of parentheses).

But even the regexp were correct, it wouldn't work, since
org-agenda-filter-by-regexp is designed to be used interactively. Its
parameter is a prefix argument, not a list or string.

I think you need a skip function here:

(setq org-agenda-custom-commands
        ("wd" "Work Day"
         ((agenda "" ((org-agenda-span 1) 
         (org-agenda-start-on-weekday nil) 
          '(org-agenda-skip-entry-if 'notregexp ":\\(ODH\\|AGENDA\\):"))))))))
