UFC Middleweight Yushin Okami

After watching only one significant underdog come through Thursday night at WEC 52, gambleholics have been itching for another shot at some long shot lovin’. Thankfully, “UFC 122: Marquardt vs. Okami” will allow betters to catch their next fix within the next few hours.

A middleweight top contender bout between Nate Marquardt and Yushin Okami will headline the Octagon’s return to Germany.

The Gambling Gods have made some slight changes since their initial predictions, but nothing to suggest they were completely off-base with their original lines.

Krzysztof Soszynski has become a late favorite over Goran Reljic, while Alessio Sakara has dropped to a slight underdog in his middleweight scrap with Jorge Rivera.

Marquardt has remained steady at -250, however Okami dropped from +190 to +180. This would suggest some money is starting to go on Japan’s side of the scales, but not heavy enough to warrant adjusting “Nate the Great’s” odds.

Make sure to get your bets in soon, as UFC 122 will be starting early this Saturday morning. The first preliminary bout is scheduled to begin at approximately 12:20PM ET/9:20AM PT.
