We here at Hockey Wilderness aren't big on gambling. We do not recommend or promote that you break any applicable laws by gambling on sports in any way, shape, or form. That $20 you bet your buddy that the Canucks can't possibly dive more this season than last is something we just don't want to know about.
That said, sportsbook site Brovada always has some interesting odds on what is known as a "prop bet." Prop bets are things like "Who will win the Art Ross trophy?" or "How many points will so and so score?" The list of prop bets is usually entertaining enough to comment on, but generally doesn't have much to do with the Wild shy of "how many points will the Wild miss the playoffs by?"
This year is different. You can bet on a handful of odds surrounding Minnesota Wild and their players. If you want to see a full list of the prop bets available right now, head over to their site. Again, we do not recommend betting, but that's your choice to make.
