LAS VEGAS – The Golden Nugget’s $190,000 Friday Football Showdown heads into its second playoff round of head-to-head matches this weekend and we have the picks from the contestants as they try to advance to the next round as the top four seeds await them.

The $190,000 Friday Football Showdown drew 95 entries this year at $2,000 apiece with the top 16 records from the 12-week preliminary rounds advancing to a bracket-style tournament the rest of the football season. Contestants make 7 plays against the GN contest lines and the best record advances. The seventh play listed is used as a tiebreaker. If that’s the same result, the tiebreaker works backward toward the first place until a winner is determined. In the unlikely event there’s still a tie (though it would automatically happen if both go 7-0 or 0-7), the next tiebreaker is the number of points by which the No. 7 pick covers or doesn’t cover, and again works in reverse order until a winner determined.

Last weekend, the No. 9-16 seeds faced off with the eight contestants combining to go 38-17-1 (69.1%). Obviously, the winners did even better at a combined 22-6 (78.6%), led by TwoNiner who went a perfect 7-0.

Here are this weekend’s matchups, followed by their picks:
