Georges St Pierre Opens As Big Favorite Over Carlos Condit, Penn vs. Diaz Close to Even

The betting lines for the the top of the remodeled UFC 137 card have come out, and they're pretty much what most expected. Georges St. Pierre is a large favorite over new opponent Carlos Condit, while B.J. Penn vs. Nick Diaz is almost dead even. Here are the lines (courtesy of Bodog):

Georges St. Pierre -450
Carlos Condit +300

B.J. Penn -130
Nick Diaz EV

Penn actually opened at -120, but early betting has moved him up to -130 already. On other sites you can get St. Pierre around -425 if you're interesting in betting on him and you're a line shopper. There are many who believed that Penn would open as a bigger favorite over Diaz, but that obviously wasn't the case, hence all the early betting on him. I expect that line to move a bit more as the fight draws closer, but I don't expect the GSP/Condit line to move much at all.
