  • 2019 NFL P.O.W. Week #10 (November 7-11) Post Plays Here

    This is the thread for the 2019 VFV NFL P.O.W. contest. The following are the rules for this year (the same as in the past):

    1. All contestants must be a member in good standing with VFV Forums
    2. Players make one (1) single play ATS each week during the NFL regular season
    3. A correct play results in one (1) point being awarded. A "push" or tie, results in a half point (1/2) being awarded
    4. An Incorrect play results in zero (0) points being awarded
    5. All lines MUST be taken from the following website each week:
    6. All lines must be -110 or less (must be posted on above buying 1/2 point)
    7. Only Vegas Sports Books listed on the VI website will be allowed
    8. The following Books will NOT be allowed: VI Consensus, BetOnline, PepperMill, Atlantis Reno
    9. The following selections are allowed: Full Game Side, Full Game Total, First Half Side, First Half Total (NO MONEYLINES ALLOWED)
    10. Plays MUST be submitted each week by kickoff of last scheduled game.
    11. Plays must be in the following format (or close to it):

    2019 NFL P.O.W. (0-0-0 (post your current record here))

    Atlanta Falcons +3 (Golden Nugget)
    (This is where you will post your reasoning for this selection. It doesn't have to be a book or even a full paragraph, but more than just "I think the Falcons are better.")

    12. Myself, Seahawk Rick (the artist formerly known as Cybergolf) or any other I deem so, will have final ruling on if a play is valid (ie: Wrong line, Wrong Book, Not enough reasoning given, etc)
    13. The first couple of weeks I will give the benefit of the doubt to any newcomers on here...veterans, you know the rules, LMEAO
    14. NO EDITING!!! (ironic, as this was edited by DaveTuley LMEAO) can't change your pick after you post it as this supposed to mirror the real world where you lock in your bet at the current number...if you need to clarify something in original post (typed in wrong team or line, or forget to cite sportsbooks, etc.), please quote in new post to bring it to the moderators attention
    15. For the first time, this year, Week 17 will be worth 2 points for a correct selection and 1 point for a push.
    16. To qualify for the playoff round of this competition, players must have a total of 10 points by the end of the regular season (week 17)...important note: your points will be the number of Units you start with in the playoff portion of the contest that runs through the Super Bowl and will be run by DaveTuley with locked-in spreads and totals, though Tuley often will give extra options if the market has variances such as Patriots -6.5 but also Steelers +7 being available); still debating maximum units allowed for playoff round (currently 5-unit max bet each playoff weekend).
    17. ViewFromVegas shirt to top point-earner in regular season; $100 gift card & VFV shirt to overall playoff champion (we've had VFV Forum members offer up additional prizes in the past including cash and steak knives, so please contact DaveTuley if you have anything to add).

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask and best of luck this season!

      2019 NFL P.O.W. (6-2-1 YTD)

      Buffalo Bills +2.5 (Westgate)

      Going with the overall better team right now.....CLV is in a complete tail-spin right now. Wouldn't be surprised if they fired Kitchens on the plane ride home from Denver. OBJ is blaming Baker, Baker is blaming the WRs, it's a complete cluster fuck....and I couldn't be happier. One thing I strongly dislike more than fans from That Team Up North, are fans of the Browns. Josh Allen is playing well, not great, but he has this team at 6-2 and definitely nin the talk to make the playoffs. They got Singletary back in the backfield today and ran great! Short road trip for the Bills, who will have a bunch of fans in attendance. Bills win easy, but I'll still take the 2.5

      Buffalo Bills 27
      Cleveland Browns 21

      Best of luck to all, and I will talk to everyone next week from the beaches of SWFL!

        NFL POW (6-2-0, Pending tonight's results)

        Bal -10 William Hill

        That Team Up North doesn't play next week. LOL (assuming I'm thinking of same team). Although I'm not a fan, I'm a Cowboys fan, I don't pick teams I like, but ones that show something. So, I seldom get to pick Cowboys. Ravens might be turning this into a special season with tonight's pending victory against the top defense in the league (nod to the very astute Seahawk Rick's observations last week). Niners probably next best all around team (and I think Seahawks play them close next week), but I think one of the biggest mismatches is this Cincy/Raven game. If Ravens can hand the Pats their first loss - by 17 points no less - and score as many touchdowns against the Patriots defense as they have allowed all year to their combined opponents touchdown total. They win in a romp against Cincy, Bal 37-14. GLTA!

        Enjoy the trip to the Orange state G!

        NFL POW (5-4-0 YTD)

        SF -6.5 Westgate Superbook, William Hill, CG Tech, Circa Sports

        Next best defense behind NE this year, #2 FPI rating, #1 defensive QBR rating and #1 NetQBR rating. Niners this year have followed up closer games with lopsided wins, Seahawks follow up one close win or close loss with another. Niners, 5-3 ATS, have an average scoring margin OVER THE POINTSPREAD of 12.8 points per game. Seahawks have an average scoring margin over the pointspread of -1.4 points per game. Since Thursday's close game, the Niners have extra time to plan their rebound game against a well known opponent. It pays off. SF 31-20. Good luck to all!

          N.F.L. P.O.W. 2019 (6-3-0)

          Sea +6.5 Westgate Superbook, Circa Sports, William Hill, CG Technology

          I think the line with Seattle is too high, given that the the line in week 9 game between SF/TB opened at -6.5 as well. These divisional opponents will play each other tough. SF averages 10.6 points per game higher this year at home than they do on the road. Sea averages 9.9 points per game higher this year on the road than they do at home. In divisional games, they are both 1-1 ATS this year, with SF scoring margin 8 points per game, and Sea scoring margin 9 points per game. Sea better than SF in turnover margin, and their turnover margin on the road is higher than their overall turnover margin. Russell Wilson also the better QB, and tied for fewest QB interceptions this year and #1 in passing touchdowns (17) and #1 in total touchdowns (20). Garoppolo has 13 passing TDs and 14 total TDs and has thrown 7 interceptions. SF likely wins, 31-27. GLTA!!

            NFL POW 6-3-0 YTD

            RAVENS -10 William Hill

            Baltimore 0-3 ATS in division this year and average scoring margin is -2 points per game. Cincinnati 1-1 ATS in division and average scoring margin is -15 points per game. In home games, Cincinnati 0-3 ATS with scoring margin of -12.3 points per game. In road games, Baltimore 2-2 ATS with scoring margin of 15.3 points per game. Cincinnati lost to Baltimore by 6 points several weeks ago. Baltimore didn't cover the spread. They do now. Bal 34-10. Good Luck Everyone!

                NFL P.O.W (8-1-0)

                Balt/Cincy Under 46 1/2 ( William Hill)

                I think after the great win vs. Pats, and next week facing Houston, Balt will just sleepwalk through this one.
                Cincinnati is pretty much sleepwalking thru the season looking for number 1 pick now.

                So Baltimore under for me.

                  Rams -3 1/2 MGM
                  After a rocky start, Rams are starting to look like the team everyone thought they would be this season. Rudolph will face much more pressure this week than he did last week against the Colts.

                    2019 NFL P.O.W. 4-5-0

                    Kansas City -3.5 (CG Tech)

                    I think Mahomes will play, and the line goes up. BUT, if he doesn't, I'm content with Moore at QB in a good win vs. MINN, even though they needed 3-FG's to do it. TENN isn't as good as MINN IMHO, and won't hang with KC scoring as Moore is 'more' comfortable in the offense each week. Mahomes might have some rust if he plays, but he'll make things happen even if he doesn't run as much.

                      NFL POW 4-5

                      Ravens -9.5 Circa

                      I don't see any let down here. Ravens are playing well. Typically you would see a let down week after a big win but the Ravens can take one step closer to sealing the division up with a win against Cincy and they know it. Talk of Dalton getting benched has created turmoil in the locker room for Cincy. Cincy kept it close last time (3 weeks ago) but not this time around. Ravens by 13.


                      • #13
                        NFL POW 3-6

                        Rams -3.5 [CGT]

                        Rams coming off bye week which should have done RB Gurley some good. Rams D should hassle Rudolph into a couple of turnovers as new CB Ramsey figures to lock down Schuster and Rudolph will dump to running backs all afternoon which the Rams will live with. Goff should have enough success with Kupp, Woods, Gurley to cover the #. Rams by 7-10

                        GL to all

                          NFL POW 6-3

                          Oakland under 49 (Westgate)

                          Divisional games typically closer to the vest. Last 4 times these two played each other game has gone under. Combined these two are 11/25 to the under last 3 years in divisional games.

                            POW 6-3
                            Seattle +6.5 at Westgate , while it scares me a little that Westgate is almost the only one with the hook, but to me this is a must win for the Seahawks who have a tough schedule in front of them, but a loss puts them three games behind in the loss column, not a good scenario and if trailing late I'll take Russell Wilson to get at least a back door cover but I'm banking on an outright winner here
