Players Tony Ricci and Andy Iskoe weighed in on opposite sides of a big AFC encounter in Round 1 of their Leroy's Money Talks match Friday night.

Ricci, a Vancouver, British Columbia, exotic club owner who won $303,000 as the Las Vegas Hilton SuperContest champion last year, and Sin City handicapper Iskoe made seven graded selections against the Leroy's line, ranging from $100 to $700, plus the vig.

The player with the biggest bankroll following the weekend's games will advance to the second round, along with previous qualifiers Bryan Leonard, Marc Lawrence and Sooner Adam.

Iskoe used Baltimore plus 2 1/2 over San Diego as his $770 wager, while Ricci took the favored Chargers for $660.

Ricci's $770 bet was San Jose State plus 2 1/2, while Iskoe used the Washington Redskins plus 2 1/2 for $660.

Riccis other picks were Chiefs minus 7 ($550), Chiefs UNDER 40 1/2 ($440), Panthers minus 7 ($330), Nebraska minus 23 ($220) and Cowboys minus 9 1/2 ($110).

Iskoe's additional plays were Arizona State minus 1 ($550), New Mexico plus 13 1/2 ($440), Raiders plus 3 ($330), Virginia Tech minus 10 ($220) and UNLV plus 3 1/2 ($110).

The selections were revealed on a Friday night radio program aired from the Silverton Hotel and Casino with Jimmy Vaccaro, John Kelly and Arne Lang co-hosting.

Sixteen invitees put up $5,000 each to compete.

Leroy's operates more than 60 Nevada bet shops and sponsors three other major Las Vegas football contests
