UFC Nick Diaz

The NCAA Tournament doesn’t start for another eight days, but could Nick Diaz (pictured) possibly kick off March Madness early by serving up an upset special this Saturday at UFC 158?

Longshot lovers across the globe certainly hope so.

Diaz is pegged as a 3.5-to-1 underdog against reigning UFC welterweight king Georges St-Pierre. GSP, meanwhile, checks in as a whopping 5-to-1 odds-on favorite to steamroll the “uneducated fool.”

Just in case you were wondering, St-Pierre was a 3.5-to-1 favorite when he unified the 170-pound crown against Carlos Condit in his last outing.

UFC 158 takes place Saturday inside Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada – just a hop, skip and jump away from St-Pierre’s backyard.

Here are the wagering lines for GSP vs. Diaz (Courtesy of BetUS):

Underdog (+350) Favorite (-)

Nick Diaz +350
Georges St-Pierre -500

Gambling 101:

Bet $100 on Diaz and he’s victorious, you win $350
Bet $500 on GSP and he’s victorious, you win $100
