UFC Welterweight Josh Koscheck

While Christmas marks the most joyous Holiday of each year, it can also be a rather stressful time for those struggling to make ends meet. Thankfully, the Gambling Gods offer some interesting investment options so those less fortunate can find their pockets filled with more than just balls of lint.

UFC 124 features a welterweight rematch between champion Georges St-Pierre and Josh Koscheck. Although Kos is riding a three-fight winning streak and was the last man to take a round from the division’s G.O.A.T., the powers that be have pegged the chatty challenger a 3-to-1 underdog.

GSP, on the other hand, has rattled off six convincing wins since his unanimous decision victory over Koscheck in August 2007.

The baddest 170-pounder in bare feet is a whopping 4-to-1 favorite to retain his title.

The welterweights’ wagering line hasn’t moved since it was first posted three months back.

Stefan Struve is a slight -160 favorite to silence his talkative Twitter foe Sean McCorkle in the card’s co-featured contest.

The Bell Centre in Montreal Quebec, Canada will host tonight’s pay-per-view extravaganza.

Upset City Factoid: The underdog has pulled through in the UFC’s last three major main events.
