LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Nothing like a friendly wager on sports, right governors?

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak tweeted Sunday afternoon to Colorado Gov. Jared Polis for a friendly bet on the outcome of the Golden Knights-Avalanche second round series.

"A case of @reavo7five's @7FiveBrewing that the Knights will beat the Avalanche and advance to the next round. What do you think, Governor Polis?" Sisolak said. 

Gov. Polis replied to Sisolak, offering up a case of Odell Brewing beer as part of the bet.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves has his own line of craft beer, 7Five Brewing. Odell Brewing, while not owned by an Avalanche player, is based out of Fort Collins, Colorado.

The governors made the wager ahead of Game 1, which ended with the Avalanche beating the Golden Knights 7-1. The winner of the best-of-seven series will advance to the semifinals.
