    So each week we bet “play” money on a few games. For our rules please see our first Pong A Long Picks Post.

    Conference Championships were just another playoff weekend, and another winning week for Pong A Long. Seeing that we built our bank account up to $242.77 from the measly $48.60 that we had on Week 14, we decided that our picking is just too good, and are risking it all. We couldn't figure out whether the Pats will use SpyGate to beat the Giants badly, or even who was going to win, so we took some bets that we thought were fairly safe. The following are the Pong A Long Picks for Super Bowl XLII.

    Brandon Jacobs Dropping A Pass

    Brandon Jacobs - Total Pass Receptions

    Over 1½ receptions (-200)

    Risk US$ 175.00 to win US$ 87.50

     





    Odd Jerseys on the Pats

    Player to score the First Touchdown will have an

    Odd Number Jersey -325

    Risk US$ 47.77 to win US$ 14.70





    Tom Brady MVP?

    NFL Player Props Odds to win 2008 Super Bowl XLII - MVP

    Tom Brady (NE) 1/2


    Risk US$ 20.00 to win US$ 10.00

    So each week we bet “play” money on a few games. For our rules please see our first Pong A Long Picks Post.

    We are on a serious playoff winning streak, and are stepping up our bets a bit this week seeing as only two game will be played. the Pats/Chargers game is just too close to call, so we bet heavy on the Giants/Packers game.

    New York Giants vs. Green Bay Packers

    Our hope is for flurries/snow/ice and a low scoring game, as we did not hedge our bets at all this week.  If the game is high scoring and pass friendly we are toast.  Our bet is that the game will be a bruising ground battle in single degree weather and our bets show that.

    Packers in Snowy Lambeau

    New York Giants vs. Green Bay Packers - UNDER 41 points

    Come-on snow and wind!  We are hoping for the Ice Bowl part II and not alot of scoring.

    Risk US$ 40.00 to win US$ 36.36

    Ryan Grant - Packers Workhorse

    Ryan Grant Rushing Attempts - OVER 22 carries

    If the Packers get the lead this should be a lock, this former Giant should be the workhorse for Green Bay.  With the cold weather and the performance last week, this should be a lock.

    Risk US$ 15.00 to win US$ 12.00

    Brandon Jacobs - Giants Workhorse

    Brandon Jacobs Rushing Attempts - OVER 15.5 carries

    If the Giants want to win in the cold, their best bet is to pound it out on the ground and use their big bruiser.  However, Jacobs has the potential to get hurt doing just about anything so this could be a mildly risky bet.

    Risk US$ 30.00 to win US$ 24.00

    Go Eli Manning go!

    New York Giants vs. Green Bay Packers

    This could be the worst bet in the history of Pong A Long Picks. Taking the Giants outright vs the Pack at Lambeau seemed impossible, so we took it.  We want the Packers to win, so at least this would make us happy if they lose.  Hey, the Giants have won their last 8 road games right?  An awful, awful bet.

    Risk US$ 15.00 to win US$ 40.50

    Overall Risk $100.00 to win $112.76

    So each week we bet “play” money on a few games. For our rules please see our first Pong A Long Picks Post.

    One missed field goal stopped us from a clean sweep last week, as we went 2 out of 3.   We are staying positive and throwing another 3 games in the mix this week.

    Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks

    Brett Favre Old School Picture

    We like the pack to win this, but the aging Seahawks should keep it close.  The Packers newly acquired ground game should keep the Seahawks on their toes.  But with the spread over a touchdown, we have to take the 'Hawks.

    Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks (+7.5)

    Risk US$ 25.00 to win US$ 22.73

    New England Patriots vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

    Randy Moss Fro from Vikings Days

    We think that the Pats might blow this game up via the air attack, but an even safer bet seems that the teams will score over 49 points (spread is 49.5).  The weather in New England is warm and Randy Moss should be able to score half of that spread himself.

    New England Patriots vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (over 49.5)

    Risk US$ 25.00 to win US$ 21.74

    New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys

    Simpson’s Boyfriend is a Romo

    The Giants have been on a roll lately, while the Cowboys sputtered into the playoffs.  Seeing that the Giants only lost to the Patriots by 3 points, we like the 7.5 points that Bodog is giving them.  Hopefully Jessica Simpson tuckered out her Romo boyfriend and Terrell Owens blows up in his face and starts a mechanical meltdown.

     New York Giants (+7.5) vs. Dallas Cowboys

    Risk US$ 20.00 to win US$ 17.39

     Overall Risk $70.00 to win $64.47

    So each week we bet “play” money on a few games. For our rules please see our first Pong A Long Picks Post.

    Weill last week ended our regular season, and we sure ended strong by more than doubling our money. We ended our first ever Pong A Long Picks regular season with only a medium size loss. WE started the 2007 NFL regualar season with $250 and ended with $156.23, an overall total of -$93.77. Not great, but we are taking it into the post season, and are on a roll.

    This week the games look much tougher to pick, so we are going to hedge our bets and pick three games.

    Pittsburg Steelers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

    Polamalu Hair

    The Steelers are at home getting three points, and we will take that for any postseason game.

    Pittsburg Steelers (+3) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

    Risk: $20.00 to win $16.67

    New York Giants vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Shockey

    The Bucs are givin 3 points and we like to think that the Giants D will slow up Garcia and the Buc's offense enough to keep it close.

    New York Giants (+3) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Risk: $20.00 to win $16.67

    Tennessee Titans vs. San Diego Chargers

    Haynseworth Isn’t Happy

    Vince Young is unpredictable, but he is a winner and should keep the Titans in this game. We really wanted to take the Titans outright, but we will take the ridiculously high 10 point spread that BoDog is giving us. Hopefully the Titans can figure a way to slow down LT and stop from being blown out.

    Tennessee Titans (+10) vs. San Diego Chargers

    Risk: $20.00 to win $16.67

    Overall Playoff Week 1 Betting - Risk $60.00 to win $52.09

    We are putting it all on the line this week: $74.18. It is all we have left, and it is the last week of the season.

    Chad Johnson

    Cincinnati Bengals vs. Miami Dolphins

    The Dolphins are horrible this year, and why should they stop now. We like Ocho Cinco and the Bengals finishing strong.

    Cincinnati Bengals (+3) vs. Miami Dolphins

    Risk: $74.18 to win $82.05

    Last week we still stayed positive with a marginal overall win. This week we are only picking one game and crossing our fingers.

    Baltimore Ravens vs. Seattle Seahawks

    Troy Smith will be the QB this week.

    Troy Smith is starting this week, and the Ravens are coming off of an embarrassing loss to the Dolphins. With the Ravens getting 12.5 points, it is a hard bet not to take.

    Baltimore Ravens (+12.5) vs. Seattle Seahawks

    Risk $15.00 to win $13.64

    This week we decided to take a holiday theme and somehow incorporate it into our Friday Five Videos. Since the holidays are really about eating a ton, we decided to feature the cornerstones of the Holiday Desserts: Pies. To not be so lame we decided to use the best pies in the face videos that YouTube has to offer.

    5) Nothing Like A .... Pie in the Face!

    This guy really gets surprised when he gets a serious pie jammed into his face. Nothing Like A ... WHAMMO!

    4) Anita Bryant Gets A Pie in the Face

    Known for her strong views against homosexuality, Anita Bryant gets rocked with a pie by Gay Rights activists.

    3) Bill Gates Pie in the Face

    Even the most important people in the world can get the occasional pie in the face. Bill Gates gets hit hard here.

    2) Wide Eyed Pie in the Face

    This girl really has no idea that this is coming, you can tell by her eyes. Without even a single blink, her friend jams a pie in her face so hard that it snaps her neck back. In slow motion we think you can see the cream hit her right in the eyeball.

    1) Rugby Pie in the Face

    Slamming a pie in the face of a rugby player sounds like just about the worst idea ever. This overseas commentator tried doing it and got served harder than Omarion. Give some credit to the host though, as he continues to run his mouth after getting rocked.

    Thanks to the referees last week, we took a beating and lost big. Fourteen weeks into this thing we only have $48.60 left from our original $250, and we have to make some serious moves to save face. This week we are betting it all.


    San Diego Chargers vs. Tennessee Titans

    LT at a press conference last year

    The Chargers seem like they finally have it together on offense, and that stellar Chargers D should give VY and his limited receivers some serious trouble. We like the Chargers by a field goal.
    San Diego Chargers (-1) vs. Tennessee Titans
    Risk US$ 10.00 to win US$ 10.50

    Cleveland Browns vs. New York Jets

    Kellen Winslow on Madden Cover

    Last week, the refs stole one from us, so we figure that the Browns are owed one.

    Cleveland Browns (-3.5) vs. New York Jets
    Risk US$ 13.60 to win US$ 12.95


    New York Giants (+3) vs. Philadelphia Eagles

    Eli Manning will lead this team

    The Giants are 5-1 on the road this year, and Donavan McNabb might be sluggish in his return. We like Eli, Shockey, Plex and those huge NY RBs to take this for a win.

    New York Giants (+3) vs. Philadelphia Eagles
    Risk US$ 25.00 to win US$ 20.00

    Risked $48.60 to win $43.45
