Strikeforce odds: Ronda Rousey -350 favorite against Miesha Tate (+250)

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

Well this is certainly an interesting development.

Strikeforce female number one contender Ronda Rousey will challenge Miesha Tate for the 135-pound title this Saturday night (March 3, 2012) live on Showtime from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

And she'll do it as the -350 favorite, according to our fiscal friends at Bet US (via Best Fight Odds).

That leaves "Takedown" as the +250 underdog, despite her six-fight winning streak (with four stoppages) and marked advantage in experience.

Perhaps the four consecutive (and agonizingly brutal) armbar submission wins by the "Rowdy" one has tipped the line in her favor? Or have the bookies fallen under the spell of her pre-fight trash talk?

Either way, Tate fans are no doubt salivating at these odds, but does anyone out there think the challenger is getting too much respect? Who's looking to make some coin on this fight over the weekend?

Get up to speed on all things "Tate vs. Rousey" right here.
