As is typical of the Strikeforce events, some of the new names they are promoting strongly have been handed weak competition (Hershal Walker and Bobby Lashley especially). While not great odds they stack up well in a parlay bet. Although Lashley's odds are so through the roof it may actually hurt your parly odds.
