Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Rafael Feijao Cavalcante

In case you haven’t noticed, “Strikeforce: Houston” has quietly become a solid fight card. While the unexpected surprise is enough to satisfy most MMA enthusiasts, gambleholics across the globe would like to suggest the perfect way to make the fights a little more exciting.

Tonight’s Showtime broadcast will feature a pair of spectacular championship scraps, as Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza meets Tim Kennedy for the vacant middleweight title in the night’s co-main event and Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante challenges Muhammad “King Mo” Lawal for his light heavyweight crown in the featured attraction.

As expected, the Gambling Gods predict Jacare will leave the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas donning Strikeforce gold.

King Mo was last seen showcasing his superior ground game against former champion Gegard Mousasi at “Strikeforce: Nashville” en route to jacking the 205-pound belt. He is a 5.5-to-1 favorite to do the same to the talented Brazilian and retain his strap.

Upset City Alert: Ngo-stradamus told me directly he’s feelin’ some underdog action, especially Feijao. In addition, Jason Riley at +700 … $10 could get you $70! Why not?

Here are the betting lines for tonight’s show (Courtesy of BetUS):

Andre Galvao -325
Jorge Patino +210

Daniel Cormier -1500
