  • 2021 NFL P.O.W. Contest Week 10 (Nov 11-15) Post Selections 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!

      Headed for my annual meeting of the Beach Apes this week. Will get standings posted before we head out of town. The wife and I are driving this year...damn rental car prices are stupid right now. In almost 25 years together, this will be our longest road trip together....let's hope we make it the 17 hours without her kicking me out somewhere along I-75 South, lol...not sure if we have any VFV members along that route, but I may come knocking if so🤣

          2021 NFL P.O.W. (5-4.............5-0 in Odd # weeks/0-4 in Even # weeks............Seriously)

          Rams -3 +100 (Caesars)

          I don't think this goes to -2.5 and think this might get to -3.5 or even -4 so taking it now. Rams were one of many teams to lay a massive clinker on Sunday's Week 9. Rams got smoked 28-16 at home on SNF by Tennessee. Score was indicative of how badly the Rams played. Now they once again play on SNF so an immediate chance to redeem themselves from the stench of the past week. Think they get it and make Jimmy G look as pedestrian as he is and get about a 7-point win

            Caesars has them at even plus 100, pretty sure rule is -110.

            I do see the rule has changed to -110 or less, really makes no sense. Because if you play a team that is less than 110 it makes the other team ineligible.

          2021 NFL POW 7-2 (7-points)

          Rams -3 (Caesars)

          SF is not good, the Rams are the better of the two teams and as long as the non-Detroit Stafford shows up to the game, this game won't even be close. The Rams need a W here against a division foe in the order to stay on Zona's heals and keep in the wildcard chase.

            Can't complain here about the line. As expected it is now -4 - and I think it will easily hit -5 and maybe more. This game is on MNF NOT SNF as I posted and I shoulda known that since in an earlier thread I asked about the Raiders/Chefs SNF game.

            StevieV - you bring up a very solid point about playing a side +100 and thus not able to play the other one

              2021 NFL P.O.W. (7-2-0)

              Denver -2.5 (BetMGM) Denver at Mile High vs another NFC Least team. No game was more of a surprise last week than how Denver handled Dallas. Totally unexpected. Well, maybe Jax over Buffalo. Coming home to Mile High vs a much lesser team in the Eagles, Denver should be able to cover this -2.5.

              Go figure the NFL this year week to week. Tenny looking like world beaters but they lost to the Jets! I thought maybe Buffalo was the best team and they look bad losing to the Jags. Maybe the Rams were the best then. Nope. Down they go to the Titans.

                2021 NFL POW 4-4-1 (4.5 points)

                Browns/Pats Under 46 (Circa)

                Time to turn this sinking ship around so let's play a total that looks slightly too high. Browns got many of their points last week on a porous Bengals D giving up huge yardage plays and an INT TD for 96 yards. Belicheck will have the NE D ready here, and don't think Mack Jones is going to light up the Browns D. This smells like a 21-17 type of game.

                  5-4 Titans -3 everywhere Coming off an impressive beatdown of the Rams in LA, they return home to meet the enigmatic Saints. Not sold on Semien. And Adrian Peterson still has some gas left in the tank. Vrabel has his team playing hard, tough and smart football. Look for the Titans to keep the pedal to the metal and score a fairly comfortable cover.

                    3-6 POW

                    SAINTS +3 (CEASARS/WYNN) OVER tenny--

                    I like to fade a team coming off a big win in a MNF/SNF game. Titans looked very good but Rams looked equally bad. Saints win this one SU on the road.

                      corrected right after I submitted. I typed +5, not +3....Sorry about that.

                    It’s a definite flaw in the rules, I’ve always felt if the line came from an approved sports book, we should be able to use it.

                      Vegas +3 Wynnbet
                      Got suckered into taking an early line with the Packers last week, then Rogers gets yanked for Covid protocol. KC looked absolutely horrible last week in winning a close one with GB. Vegas at home will be pumped up for this old AFC classic.

                        Contrarian play here taking a down and out NFC east team against a Broncos team that looked like world beaters last week in destroying the Cowboys on the road on both sides of the ball.

                          Vegas west coast east coast back home- still dealing with terrible team news--
                          Yes KC not looking great of late but believe they cover this short number this week
