Georges St-Pierre and Carlos ConditNow that Georges St-Pierre has declared that he is healthy and has the green light to fight Carlos Condit at UFC 154 on Nov. 17 in Montreal, it’s time for the oddsmakers to chime in.

St-Pierre will have been out of action for more than a year and a half come fight time, but that hasn’t swayed the betting public away from the champ. He is a heavy favorite, despite Condit’s victories over Nick Diaz, Jake Ellenberger, and GSP teammate Rory MacDonald.

Case in point, Nick Kalikas of MMAOddsBreaker.com currently has the line set at -355 for St-Pierre to Condit’s +265. In a nutshell, that means that you’d have to place a $355 wager on St-Pierre in order to win $355, while a $100 wager on Condit would return $265, if he were to upset GSP.

That’s not near the disparity of the UFC 152 line on Jon Jones and Vitor Belfort, where Jones was instilled as a 9-to-1 favorite, but it is still leans heavily in St-Pierre’s favor. It’s actually a wider gap than the line was back in February after Condit defeated Diaz, solidifying his shot at the champ.

With nearly three months left until fight time, the line could change considerably depending upon how the betting public wagers its money. St-Pierre, however, is largely considered one of the top two or three pound-for-pound fighters in the world, so it’s not likely to change too much into Condit’s favor.
