  • 2021 NFL P.O.W. Contest Week 9 (Nov 4-8) 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!!!********

      2021 NFL P.O.W. (3-4-1 YTD)

      Green Bay Packers +2.5 (Westgate)

      I was actually contemplating taking, are you ready for this, the Texans. Miami is a dumpster fire now and I think Taylor will be back, but I just can't pull the trigger on them yet. So I landed on possibly the hottest team in the NFC catching points on the road against a very bad defense in KC. I know Mahomes usually steps up in prime time games, but so does A-Rod. I will take the hotter team on extended rest against a regressing team on short rest. And anytime I can get points with a team next week and the opposing team still having to play, I'll do it more times than not. Rodgers and crew win again on the road.

      Green Bay Packers 31
      Kansas City Chiefs 20

      Best of luck to all this week!

        POW 6-2 6-points

        Zona -1-1/2 (Circa)

        SF showed some promise against Da Bears, but Zona is not Chicago. Arizona looking to rebound after their first loss and keep up with the Rams in the division.

          2021 NFL P.O.W. (5-3-0)

          BALTIMORE THREE-EYED RAVENS -5.5 (WESTGATE SUUUUUUUUUUPERBOOK)


          BALT burned my ass when CINN went in there and kicked their ass, but they'll have the bye on their side and wanting to get the crap sandwich taste out of their mouths. Lamar Jackson is no Cooper Rush and it's off to the races. MINN is decent, but just can't hit the gas and break out of their average play and on the road where a pissed-off BALT team will not be able to keep up with the sports car, Lamarborghini!

            Yeah, I am ready to pounce on Baltimore also. Minny was pretty bad last night. Dallas D was shredding their OL and the Minny D was letting Dallas receivers run wide open for Cooper Rush.

            Lamarborghini can actually do some damage from the pocket along with the running ability. BALT doesn't win by 20, but I see them winning by a TD+
            Harbaugh will rally the troops as the division is a crap shoot right now and they need W to get some mo-mo.

            Odd weeks keep your pick, even weeks take the opposite.

          Green Bay +3 Caesars
          KC will be returning after a short week against arguably the best team in the NFL right now. Two teams headed in different directions. GB wins straight up.

            I wanted to hold out for the 3, but was afraid it would go the other way, so I grabbed the 2.5

            MGM has already flipped to now having GB -1 after last night's game. Good grab for both of us....I hope😉

            NFL POW 3-5 [3pts]

            Cincy -2.5 [Caesars]

            Bengals got a kick in the teeth yesterday letting their guard down vs the Jets. They won't let that happen at home vs their in state rival. Browns have been a disappointment and have been hit hard on Offense by the injury bug. Not sold that Mayfield will be able to generate enough to stay within this short #. Burrow is still playing well and they will be fired up to atone for the loss on Sunday. They win this by 10.

            GL to all

              POW 2-6
              Indy -10 BetMGM
              This line seems almost too low, which could be a red flag, but I’ll take the bait. Indy waaaay too good on both sides of the ball.

                Green Bay +1 Fan Duel
                I'm sure they will be favored soon. Did the linemakers watch the Monday night game? KC is awful. They have no defense
                what so ever. The penalties they took. Hard to believe where they are at. Seems like Mahomes runs less and less up
                the middle.. I think Green Bay will embarrass them

                Giants +3 Wynn

                would have taken GB getting 3 but it was -115 when I checked yesterday

                Raiders are a dumpster fire and now traveling East after Ruggs killed someone.

                Giants have a short week but I will take the points.

                  Not sure I agree. Raiders went to Denver right after the Gruden debacle and smoked the Broncos. If anything this will bring the team closer together and motivate them even more. Ruggs will not be a distraction to them - they will move on and play without him. I want no part of a team that played its guts out on MNF and is playing team off a BYE. I'd rather have Raiders -3 than the NY Football Gigantes +3

                      POW #9 - W/L 4-4

                      Lifted my head from below ground as Denver did the deed.
                      Now looking for B2B wins

                      I am hoping for another week off for Dak, anyhow wIll make my play
                      UNDER the 49.5 and will only actually wager on it if actually, "Dakless in Dallas"
                      Both were low scoring teams & unders this past Sunday.
                      So a Double Dipping with, "Denver D" in Dallas.

                      49½u-10 BETMGM

                      Bbbbbye and GL to all.
                      Looks like I'll get to stick around for another term of POW plays.
