  • 2021 NFL P.O.W. Week 6 (Oct 14-18) 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: http://www.vegasinsider.com/nfl/odds/las-vegas/

    6. All lines must be -110 or less (must be posted on above site...no buying 1/2 point)

    7. Only Vegas Sports Books listed on the VI website will be allowed

    8. PLEASE SEE NOTE BELOW FOR ELIGIBLE BOOKS!

    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)...you 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!

    ******GOING FORWARD, HERE ARE THE ONLY BOOKS ELIGIBLE TO USE FOR THIS CONTEST. ANY PLAYS POSTED NOT USING ONE OF THESE BOOKS WILL BE GRADED AS A LOSS. THIS WILL SERVE AS YOUR ONLY REMINDER FOR THIS RULE!!!********

      Miami -3 ... Westgate

      This is a live line, checked it out on my betting app. I am laying small points to the worst NFL team for the second week in a row. This is a neutral site game being played in London, England. I think that the Jags actually might have a 1-point home field advantage since the team plays a game here every year. That being said, Miami is the much better team and should easily beat its home state rival. The Jags have the better quarterback, but Miami is better at every other position.

        First congratulations and a point really does not matter as you are winning based on final line also.My question has to do with current college polls.If season ends today Alabama is out of playoffs?Cinny is good and beat my ND at South Bend but #4 in both polls?If you get a chance listen to Kelly’s press conference after VT game.He tells press he really does not care about them because they will find something negative about ND’s win.

      2021 NFL P.O.W. (3-2-0)

      SEATTLE SEACHICKENS +4 (CEASARS)


      My little Seachickens were in a world of hurt before Lil' Russy got his finger mangled, but now, the little guy is on the bench drinking nano bubble water watching Geno Smith take the helm. I think bettors will overplay how Geno will do as he was a starter in this league and even though he hasn't started in years, you could see how well he threw the ball cold off the bench in the LAR game. He gets a whole week of practice and a game plan to suit his talents, which include running. RB Chris Carson has a shot to return to the lineup and with a solid WR core, I'm saying they've got a chance! I despise Ben the rapist and think he should be in prison and not a football field, but he's gettable and my birds can hang within a FG and an outright win isn't a crazy thought.

        Wow! Great gig!! Was a Kingdome guy as I was born/raised in Seattle and moved to San Diego in 1981 and moved back here in 2009.

        Saw all the stuff you saw, just not EVERY game! Worst concert venue ever as the sound bounced around like a ping pong ball! Saw Evil Knievel jump a bunch of buses there too. Fun times but glad it's gone!

        Yes, it was a concrete echo chamber for concerts. It was quite something to watch it get imploded on YouTube. Poof! 10 years of my life up in smoke!

        Yeah, I almost flew up to watch the implosion as I went to the opening dedication event with Wayne Cody as the MC!

        Have a chunk of it at my house... Awwwe, the memories!

      Cincinnati University will likely make the playoffs when Oklahoma loses a game. Georgia will absolutely blow Cincinnati off the field when they meet (#! vs #4). The competitive game will likely be Ohio State vs Alabama (#2 vs #3).

        Alabama has to win out in order to make the playoffs (or at least go toe to toe vs UGA in the SEC Championship). Assuming other teams do not trip up.

      2021 NFL POW (4-1) 4-points

      LAR -10-1/2 (BET MGM)

      The G-Men are hurt and will most likely have a suspension coming down for one of their WR's. LAR will score early and often and limit NYG's ball movement. LAR in a blowout.

        NFL POW 2-3 [2 pts]

        Over 54 KC/Washington [Caesars]

        Chiefs Defense has been absolutely horrible so far and Washington's Defense which had been touted as one of the best has not lived up to its expectations. Both teams should move up and down the field with little or no resistance. Mahomes will use Hill and Kelce to carve up Washington as they now sitting in last place in the NFC West will use their strengths to score 30+ points and Washington will do what every other team has done vs KC. this game gets to 60.

        GL to all

          It looks like the line at Caesars moved to 55.5 right before your post. Line moved at 10:23AM and your post was at 10:30AM. Your play will be graded at 55.5

      • #8
        Go ahead and give me a ruling.....when I posted early this AM it was 54......if you're saying 55.5 is what it is then I'll live with it.....thanks

          NE played a crazy game last week on road, won after an emotional week before That!

            NFL POW (3-1-1)

            Miami -3 (Wynn)

            I had already circled the Miami game vs. Jacksonville, agree with Tarb above. Do you think Jacksonville has their mind on football right now? Maybe the Jags owner could pull an epic stunt after they lose to a game Miami squad next weekend and leave Meyer on the tarmac in London and tell him if the team charter wasn't good enough back from Ohio, then it's not good enough back from the U.K.. God that would be amazing right? I mean really, that would be epic. I'm pulling for a Miami blowout just so there is a chance it happens. Fish swim by 20!!!!

              Wynn has Miami -3 but it is at -120. Was it at -110 when you posted? Everywhere else has had Miami -3.5 since this morning.

              At the time of your post, the line at Wynn was MIA -3 (-120). Only lines of -110 or better are allowed. Your play will be graded at the 3.5 that was available at -110

            NFL POW (2-3)

            Miami -3 (Wynn)


            Tried fading the Jags last week after the Meyer fiasco and it worked. Let us go again.

            Home game for the Jaguars as I have no idea why they haven't already moved to London. The NFL sends them there so often. Maybe a small advantage there but I want to fade them anyway.

              According to the VI history page, Miami has never been at -3 at Wynn. Your play will be graded at 3.5

            2-3
            Buffalo -5 BetMGM
            Bills probably THE hottest team in the NFL right now. Two great defenses will be at play here, but circle the wagons, it’s the Buffalo Bills.

              Cowboys -4 Southpoint
              Cowboys have covered in every game this year and are on a three game winning streak after losing a heart breaker to the Bucs on opening day. Patriots had to pull a rabbit out of their hat to get an improbable win vs the hapless Texans last week.

                WEEK 6
                POW - 3-2

                LAC/BALTI - OVER 50
                Line is 50u-10 Wynn


                Well the Jets are getting some "time out" after beating my total play by a 1/2 point, hence time for a new victim.
                Chargers gave up running and passing to the Brownies and will repeat with Balti.
                So I expect point accumulation as a result. Over and Out !

                  2021 NFL P.O.W. (1-3-1 YTD)

                  Los Angeles Chargers +3 (Caesars)

                  Was hoping for the hook with this, but it is with plus money, so will go with the flat 3. I really don't think the points will come into play, as I think LA wins outright. They proved last week that they have one of the most dominant offenses in all of football and one of the best young qbs as well. BAL is off a tough OT battle on MNF in which Jackson played amazingly...in the second half. The BAL defense allowed a very banged up and subpar IND team to run up and down the field on them. And had it not been for a kicker with a bad hip missing 2 FG's and an EXPT, this game was not even close. Not worried about the early start time, as I read that LAC will be traveling East a day earlier than normal. LAC wins a big road game and makes their case for one of the top 2 teams in the AFC.

                  LOS ANGELES CHARGERS 34
                  BALTIMORE RAVENS 27

                  Best of luck to all this week!
