If you’re looking for a Colorado team to hoist a championship trophy this year, the choices are clear. With the Rockies expected to be in the cellar, and the Broncos wandering the desert, it’s the Avalanche, Nuggets or bust. The Avalanche (13-8) stand third in the West heading into their outdoor game against the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday at Lake Tahoe. The Nuggets (15-13) are holding down the No. 8 slot in the Western Conference, with a trip to Cleveland on Friday coming up next. Both still have decent odds to win a title, although the Avalanche at +600 (bet $100 to win $600) have the best odds in the NHL, according to co.superbook.com . Only their Lake Tahoe opponent, the Golden Knights, can match the 6-to-1 odds. The Tampa Bay Lightning and Boston Bruins are both currently listed at +700.

One thing's for certain: we love our pets, and they are a part of our families. We do all that we can to keep them happy, healthy, and by our side for as long as we can. But we also know that pets can be unpredictable, and they can get injured or become sick despite our absolute best efforts. When that day comes, pet parents want their pets to receive the best medical care and treatment available — high costs be damned. This is where pet health insurance comes in. It’s easier to afford costly medical care for our pets with pet insurance, and it’s better than relying on the money in our bank account or a line of credit with a high-interest rate.

Welcome to the Grand National, the most grueling and spectacular steeplechase in the world. The 172nd edition of the race, staged on April 6 at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool, England, offers a record prize money pot of £1 million ($1.3 million).
