Strikeforce: Rousey Vs. Kaufman Betting Lines

via cdn2.sbnation.com

The lines for the full Strikeforce: Rousey vs. Kaufman card are out, and wow are they ever tilted. Every fight on the main card and two of the undercard fights feature a fighter that is -300 or higher. Who has the best chance for the big upset on the main card? Honestly, I don't see anyone. Roger Bowling has huge power, but Tarec Saffiedine has a great chin and better overall skills. Derek Brunson and Sarah Kaufman are longshots for a reason. There's a chance T.J. Cook could give OSP a run for his proverbial money, but that's not likely either.

If you do want to bet on this card, I'd recommend sticking to the undercard. Bobby Green has way more experience than Matt Ricehouse and probably better wrestling, so I'd jump on him at -140. I'm also willing to take a flier on Hiroki Yamanaka at +140. Here's a look at the whole card:
