  • 2021 NFL P.O.W. Contest Week 12 (Nov 25-29) 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. (6-5-0)

      HOUSTON TEXANS -2.5 (TI)


      What the hell...I'll roll with some Swagger Theory off the big win over the Titans where HOU caused turnovers and played some good D vs one of the best teams in the NFL. They did it in crappy weather and Tyrod is working his way back into form and should be better when he takes on the JETS. That win makes a week of practice oh so fun with NYJ in their sites and can cover a FG one would think.

        2021 NFL P.O.W.: 6-5

        Since this is an Even # week I will lose this play since I am 6-0 in Odd # weeks and 0-5 in Even # weeks. I am serious. I can't make that up.

        Falcons Pick (Caesars)

        Falcons have a few extra days of rest for this game although one can argue they actually had a Bye last week even though the schedule says they played New England. Massive drop down in quality here and even though the game is outdoors and on grass the Falcons are better than the Jags. Right?

          NFL P.o.w.(8-3-0)

          Rams plus 2 ( mgm)

          Aaron toe trouble and Rams had poor showing last time out
          they should win this one easy

            NFL POW 5-5-1

            New England -5.5 (Circa)

            The Titans offensive production has fallen off since losing Henry for the season. Since then, they have scored 28 (with 14 of those being two pick sixes), 23, and 13. When you can only muster 13 against the Texans something isn't working. They now face the Patriots who have only allowed 6, 7, and 0 points the past three weeks. Aside from playing the best D in the league right now, the Pats have averaged 35 points over the past 5 games. I'll take the Pats and lay the 5.5.

              As our fearless leader likes to say, I am back safely in the "home office" of frigid Central Ohio. Talk about a shock to the system! As I stated, the next time I make that 17 hour drive, it will be for my permanent move to FLA.

                2021 NFL P.O.W. (3-6-1 YTD)

                Atlanta Falcons Pick (Caesars)

                If the Falcons get beat by Urban Grinder, then Arthur Blank needs to put a for sale sign on the home office in Flowery Branch and retire to some deserted island. It also may be enough for me to drop my decades long dedication to this team. As bad a s ATL has played on offense recently, they are still a better team than JAX overall. I see a very low scoring game, probably won by our teams MVP, Younghoe Koo, our kicker, lol.

                Atlanta Falcons 9
                Jacksonville Jaguars 7

                Best of luck to all this week and Happy Turkey Day as well!

                NFL POW 3-7

                Almost have to win out....fat chance of that happening, but here goes

                San Francisco -3 [BET MGM]

                The home team seems to have found their strength, the running game and will be able to exploit a weak Minnesota Defense. Vikings off a high of beating Green Bay last week in a shootout. I see the 9'ers D causing a turnover or two and that making the difference in this one. They come out out with a 6-10 point win.

                GL to all

                  2021 NFL POW 7-4 (7-points)

                  Dallas -7 (BETMGM)

                  Short week, home cooking, and the better team. Da Raiders looked lost on Sunday against Cincy. They have a lot of issues to fix and a short week is not going to help. If Cincy can go to Vegas and win by 3 scores, Dallas can fry a Turkey in the morning and win by 2 scores in the afternoon.

                    NFL POW (3-8-0) YTD

                    Patriots -6 (Wynn)

                    I thought I might be able to get -5 and I dabbled in this a bit at -3 last week on the look ahead - but I still like it at -6. I would be looking to fade most teams that were going into 10 days of rest feeling good about themselves after a shutout victory in prime time. But I am comfortable with betting on the Belichick and Mac Jones (who came from a program used to such victories) to stay focused. My only concern is the familiarity on the other sideline, but I just don't think 3 points is enough to move this line given the cluster injuries of skill players on the Titans.

                      Mr. Cotton. I’m 6-5, not 5-5. I was 5-5 before last week and had the Chiefs -2 1/2 last week.

                      7-4

                      Chicago-Detroit Under 42 Bet MGM

                      For those of us who have an early dinner this snoozefest will help get our rest for the later games. Both offenses should show
                      nothing special and combine for the Under. The main thing to worry about will be defensive TDs or TOs in the anti-Red Zone.
                      There may even an own goal or couple too tree. (Hayna or No, Mr. Pixter)

                        4-6

                        SAINTS +6 OVER BILLS (Ceasars)--Too many points for a struggling team t lay here on the road. Think this will be a good game and Saints hang around until the end.
