Strikeforce Lightweight KJ Noons

After much anticipation, the Gambling Gods have finally released the betting odds for Saturday’s “Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Noons II” event.

Despite taking a controversial TKO victory in their initial meeting, the powers that be have pegged KJ Noons a 2-to-1 underdog against mortal enemy Nick Diaz.

That scrap took place three years ago and at 160 pounds. Diaz has since moved up to capture Strikeforce’s welterweight crown, while Noons fights in the lightweight division.

If you’re able to look past Diaz’s bong ripping, post-fight brawling ways, he is one of the game’s best all-around competitors. He’ll be riding a seven-fight winning streak into the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. Guess who handed Diaz his last defeat?

The Showtime broadcast starts at 10PM ET/PT.

Here are the lines currently available (Courtesy of JustWagers.com):

Andre Galvao +210
Tyron Woodley -270

Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante +150
Josh Thomson -180

Marloes Coenen +230
Sarah Kaufman -290

KJ Noons +200
Nick Diaz -260
