The odds on faves for the Night of the Dino

Publication YearIssue Date 

The University of Calgary is about as far away from Las Vegas as Theo Fleury is from sober. So, odds on the Dinos are sometimes hard to come by. Throughout the year journalistic integrity precludes the Gauntlet from predicting outcomes or holding bets for the enormous population of sports gamblers at the U of C. But, the Dinos season is over and with one athletic-related event left this year all bets are on. And your friendly neighbourhood newspaper is prepared to give you the inside track on what to expect at the 2001/02 edition of The Night of the Dino.
