They don't say they weight recent games more heavily than others, but look at Minnesota's remaining schedule. It's ... shall we say.. favorable.

The one thing that website can't predict is when teams have mental breakdowns where they can't win a game to save their lives. It's only using objective data to model their assumptions. It can't predict problems between the ears. The Kings were cruising to the playoffs until they decided to go 2-10-0.
