The curse is officially broken. Backs' record is still going, but i'm only going to bet 400 on the wild to be on the safe side. We'll probably end up losing 5-2 again though.
It has nothing to do with the # of fans on HF, the odds are from an independent site. Odds site have a tenancy to skew the odds that they think might be close (as was the case 3-2 SO Win for MIN) so the team that the think will lose will have the lower odds to try an get people to bet on them thinking they are the favorite.
