Who will score more points on Super Bowl Sunday: Pittsburgh Steelers or Tracy McGrady?
Mountain View, CA, (PRWEB) January 24, 2006
PicksPal.com players showcased their superior sports IQs during the NFL’s conference championships, accurately picking the outcomes, over/under spreads, and a majority of the props in the free online sports picks game.
Over two-thirds of the PicksPal.com players picked the Pittsburgh Steelers to cover the 3.5 point spread against the Broncos, as well as the 41 total points scored in the game. Similarly, a majority of players picked the Seattle Seahawks to cover their 4.5 point spread and combine with the Panthers to score over 42.5 total points in the game.
Aside from the outcomes and over/under NFL odds, close to 70 percent of PicksPal.com players knew Ben Roethlisberger would throw a touchdown pass before Jake Plummer. Other notable props picked with high accuracy (85 percent) included Seattle’s Shaun Alexander rushing for more yards than Carolina’s Nick Goings, as well as whether or not there would be a lost fumble in the 4th quarter of the NFC championship game (87 percent). Unlike other online sports picking venues, PicksPal.com also gave its players a chance to pick on unique, off-the-wall props designed to make watching the games even more entertaining.
For example, 98 percent of PicksPal.com players knew John Elway would be shown or mentioned during the AFC championship broadcast, and 74 percent were confident that a Broncos player would perform the Mile-High Salute after scoring a touchdown (compliments of Mike Anderson).
Overall, PicksPal.com players had a right/wrong record of 14-7 in major NFL odds and props regarding last Sunday’s championship games, with most of the incorrect picks stemming from disappointing Steve Smith related props. PicksPal.com is preparing for its Super Bowl Blowout Contest, where the site will feature more extravagant, unorthodox props, as well as a grand prize for the winner.
Some of the fun props that will be featured for the Super Bowl include “Which will you see first during the game: Bill Cowher spit or Mike Holmgren smile?” and “Will Ben Roethlisberger be compared on the telecast to his idol John Elway in the 1st quarter,” as well as “Who will score more points on Super Bowl Sunday: Pittsburgh Steelers or Tracy McGrady?”
As with the championship games, PicksPal.com’s Super Bowl Blowout Contest should be highly competitive and highly accurate – especially with a big screen TV on the line.
