A Decision I have never had to face before

Scenario: Playing in an OKB on-line tournament.  1st time pick up, but strong partner.  You are playing in the final (of 6) rounds, Matchpoints and currently have a 70% game.  As the event is played "Swiss" style, the opponents are also having a good game (68%), I do not remember playing against them before but based upon their score, I assume they are reliable.  I was faced with the following decision:

 

South
AQJ954
K5
QJ6
A9
W
N
E
S
1
2
P
P
?

 

What are your thoughts about pass -vs- bidding again (and trying for game)?  Would your decision change if it was IMPS instead of MP's.  I realize this is a somewhat silly problem to have to face, but I was thinking later - what a "coup" it would be to pass in the E seat and give up -250 or 300 if the opponents had a Vul game --  any thoughts here?
