These odds don't make sense. We just lost one of our top scorers and are coming off a loss. We're up against the top team in the west and yet somehow the Oilers are the favourites here...

Oilers have a tonne more people on the boards (probably more Oiler fans that started accounts here in 2011 than everyone with a Wild affiliation that's ever signed up). Could there be a fan confidence algorithm running somewhere on this site that factors such thing as number of times fans brag about their team?

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.
