LAS VEGAS – The semifinals of the $190,000 Friday Football Showdown at the Golden Nugget are now set after the fourth quarterfinal match was decided on the Monday Night Football game.

No. 3 seed DMill, the alias of Las Vegas advantage player David Miller, had the Buccaneers plus-6 and covered in their 24-21 loss to the Falcons to improve to 3-2-2 on the weekend and eliminate No. 11 seed TwoNiner, who dropped to 2-4 with the Over 48.5 (note: if Patrick Murray had made his 54-yard field goal attempt to force overtime, TwoNiner would have still been alive unless the game ended in a 24-24 tie).

The other three quarterfinal matches were determined on Sunday.

No. 1 seed Tha Good Playa (3-3 with one play pending), the alias of professional sports bettor and WSOP bracelet winner Brandon Wittmeyer, over No. 16 seed Ned Landers (1-4-2). No. 5 seed Mucked Nuts (3-3-1), the alias of defending champion Chris Kozak, also defeated No. 4 seed Stag Capital (2-5) and will face Tha Good Playa, in one of the Golden Nugget semis hosted on The Las Vegas Sportsline radio show at 2 p.m. PT Friday here in Vegas on ESPN AM-1100 and lvsportsnetwork.com.

No. 7 Ed From Vegas (4-3), a 63-year-old professional Las Vegas sports bettor, eliminated No. 2 Skins Raj 29 (1-4-1) and will face DMill in the other semifinal.

Here were the picks of all eight quarterfinalists. They’re only a combined 19-28-6 (40.4%) with three pending plays after going 38-17-1 (69.1%) and 34-22 (60.7%) in the first two playoff rounds, but what only matters is having a better record than their head-to-head opponent.

The 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. All playoff qualifiers earned $3,000 with the top four records earning an additional $3,000. Tha Good Playa earned an additional $2,000 (for a total of $8,000) for being the No. 1 seed. The top four records also received double-byes through the first two weeks of head-to-head matchups to land here in the quarterfinals with winners the past two weeks earning $1,000 per victory.

The semifinalists will give their seven best bets on the radio show on Friday from among the NFL Week 16 games and the bowl games between through next Wednesday (and we'll post them here on Friday afternoon after the show). The winners will advance to the Dec. 29 finals where they’ll be shooting for the $60,000 first-place prize.
