  • 2021 NFL P.O.W. Week 2 (Sept 16-20) Post Plays Here

    This is the thread for the 2021 VFV NFL P.O.W. contest. The following are the rules for this year:
    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


    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. Week 18 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 18).

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

      NE -3.5 over Jets ..... Westgate

      Mac Jones looked to be the real deal in his debut versus Miami. Wilson struggled in his debut versus Carolina. The Patriots have a very good defense, while the Jets do not. NE should be able to run well, taking the pressure off Jones. This could be a blowout.

        NFL POW 1-0

        DET +10.5 (Circa)

        I almost never post this early but traveling this week so here goes. Detroit with a monster come back today and GB looked atrocious so this line seems inflated to me. I would have guessed it would correct to 6.5 - 7.5 range. Jumping on it now before it changes.

        You are never as good or bad as week 1 can look but GB looked out of sync on offense and I don’t see that changing with a week of practice. In terms of Detroit, we know what Goff is at this point and while he won’t win consistently he can keep the offense scoring.

          2021 NFL P.O.W. (1-0-0)

          ZONA BIRDS -4.5 (CIRCA)

          Well, taking an NFC West team (SF) did me well (Barely!) so I'm going back to the best division in the NFL and take the Cards. That was no easy feat to go back east and beat the hell out what you think is a pretty good team, a playoff team. Kyler was on it and is showing the evolution that you want to see out of a young QB. Maybe I just have an infinity for short QB's.

          ARI had 6-sacks and just made it look easy. MINN didn't look great in their game vs. the Bungles and Cousins just finds a way to lose. I'll take the home team to win by a TD+.

            UW sucks. Nuff said.

            THEEEE Ohio St. University though is all powerful, and to lose to a lowly Pac 12 school is an embarrassment beyond belief! I'm surprised that the coach and AD didn't get fired!!!

            I'm not sure how good Oregon really is but they were ranked 11, which I believe is the highest ranked PAC-12 school, so not sure that is a 'lowly PAC-12 school." Maybe if we can find a new DC we would actually have a chance. That's who needs to be fired!

            Agree with my fellow hairless nut fan....Coombs should of stayed in Nashville with wonder he didn't put up much of a fight when Kerry left to come back up North, lol...

          2021 NFL P.O.W. (1-0-0) 1-Point

          Cincinnati +3.5 (BETMGM)

          Better defense, better offense, and I am getting a field goal with a half point? Book it, Cincy wins this game outright and starts the season 2-0.

            Guess everyone and their mother jumped on this line. Already down to 1-1/2 at some places.

          NFL POW 0-1

          Arizona -4 [BET MGM]

          Arizona traveled very well Sunday .....caused 3 turnovers and had six sacks vs what was supposed to be a very strong Tennessee Offense. Murray played outstanding and in this home opener I expect it to continue.... Cousins will have trouble having enough time to find his guys and Arizona will exploit a below average secondary to get the W by 10 pts.

          GL to all

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

            Vikes plus 4 1/2 (Circa)

            Going with and old trend that has worked well for me in the past- Like the Vikes here to cover so since traveling want to get this pick in early.
            They came back last week after shaking the rust off scoring 17 in 2nd half- I think Az overachieved vs a Tenn team not ready to play.

            Nobody is as good or as bad as week one suggests-

            Cleveland -12 1/2 Southpoint
            Hate laying a big number but this seems like a huge mismatch. Browns played Chiefs down to the wire while Texans beat the hapless Jags. Can see Brownies scoring early and often.

              49ers -3 1/2 Caesars
              This might be the year for San Fran. Don’t like laying the hook but it’s possible this line could float higher. Niners seem stronger on both sides of the line.

                NFL POW 1-0

                Chiefs -3 (South Point)

                I'll go ahead and lay a FG with the Chiefs here. The Marcus Peters injury really seemed to show itself versus the Raiders. If Derek Carr is throwing for over 400 yards versus the Ravens, what is Patrick Mahomes going to do? Chiefs have had the Ravens number the past couple of seasons. Ravens also have a short preparation week AND also had to play the overtime period on MNF. The Ravens O-line didn't impress me either, Villanueva isn't the player he once was.

                Bottom line, the Ravens injury situation is really starting to look dire. Ravens skill position players are thin on talent and Lamar Jackson is really having to carry a heavy load. I don't think he'll be able to keep up with Mahomes, Chiefs get it done on the road.

                  Chiefs -3

                  This did not go well for me in the super bowl but I’m still willing to lay 3 points with the chiefs against anyone at any location for now. I love the Ravens and will hope for a blowout that creates some value on them moving forward, but this is way too few points given the QB discrepancy. It makes me nervous to fade a team coming off a prime time loss but other than that this is too few points for the Chiefs to be laying when they are not decimated by injuries.

                      NFL POW 1-0

                      Steelers -5 -110 (Bet MGM)

                      Short week for Da Raiduhs who now have to travel to the EDT and play (what is for them) a 10A game after an enormously mentally and physically draining win on MNF. I do agree with others that the Chefs over the banged up Ravens is appealing but knowing all involved here so does fading "Oakland"

                        Updated standings are now at the top of the thread. Good luck in Week 2!
