Despite showcasing a pair of title tilts, tonight’s “Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy” event is generating very little hoopla. Furthermore, it’s already game day and the the Gambling Gods are only interested enough to release the betting lines for the card’s two featured fights.

Nate Marquardt is a slight -135 odds-on favorite to beat Tyron Woodley to capture the vacant welterweight crown. Woodley, meanwhile, checks in just behind as a +105 underdog.

The show’s main attraction isn’t expected to be nearly as competitive. Tim Kennedy (Pictured) is a significant 2.5-to-1 longshot to dethrone middleweight champion Luke Rockhold.

Rockhold, on the other hand, is pegged as more than a 3-to-1 favorite to retain his strap.

Saturday’s Showtime broadcast airs at 10PM ET/PT.

Friendly reminder: Only fans with access to an east coast feed can watch the scraps live, so make sure to place your bets in time.

Here are the available wagering lines for tonight (Courtesy of Bovada):

Favorites (-) Underdogs (+)

Nate Marquardt -135
Tyron Woodley +105

Luke Rockhold -330
Tim Kennedy +250
