UFC 130 odds: Stefan Struve vs Travis Browne

via <a href=""></a>

Is super-sized heavyweight Stefan Struve ready to break out and break into the 265-pound title hunt?

He'll need an impressive performance against the equally hungry Travis Browne when they throw leather at the upcoming UFC 130: "Rampage vs. Hamill" pay-per-view event on May 28 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Skyscraper" was last seen silencing the outspoken Sean McCorkle in the co-main event of UFC 124 back in December, his second victory in as many fights.

The oddsmakers were not impressed.

Despite his seven fights inside the Octagon, Struve comes into Saturday night as the +110 underdog.

Apparently, the bookmakers feel the lanky Dutchman is at a disadvantage against the hard-hitting Hawaiian, who spent the last two years terrorizing the regional circuit.

"Hapa" currently stands as the -140 favorite.

Are the oddsmakers calling it like they see it? Or playing it safe? Take a look at how these two heavyweights stack up and decide for yourself.
