Overeem a huge favorite this week, Couture is picking Werdum

With 10-of-12 favorites winning, UFC 131 was a great night for chalk bettors. Off-shore sportsbook Bodog released the news that two of its players cashed big plays.

One bettor nailed a $200 12-fight parlay, good for $51,547. Another bettor cashed a 10-teamer for $32,000. That's a helluva job, but it took a little luck. Darren Elkins, who many people thought got a gift decision against Michihiro Omigawa, was part of the 12-teamer.

Will the squares cash in again this Saturday at the Strikeforce event? The Strikeforce heavyweight Grand Prix clashes are very one-sided on the betting boards. Alistair Overeen is a massive minus-300 favorite over Fabricio Werdum while Josh Barnett is minus-350 to beat Brett Rogers.

Former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champ Randy Couture likes Werdum.
