    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)

    15. Prizes to be determined by DaveTuley....we've had fellow posters offer up prizes in the past, so please let me know if anyone has anything to offer or ideas for yours truly (yes, this is an edit by DaveTuley I'd like to have a prize for the person earning the most points during the regular season...and then the overall champ after the Super Bowl (and perhaps a runner-up prize).
    16. NO EDITING!!!

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

      2018 NFL P.O.W. (6-1-1)

      KC -8 (William Hill)

      How can you not root for Mahomes?! This guy is having a story book season. Tyrek Hill is looking like a no go or at least less the n 100% with a groin strain. I think the market has grossly over reacted to this news which is why the points dropped so quick. I will Gladly grab the 8 before the correction and the points go back up to a10 where it should be. i look for Andy Reid to get creative and have fun with a Browns team struggling to get it together-without a head coach or OC! I take the Chiefs here, 34-10.

        2018 NFL P.O.W. (4-4-0 YTD)

        Houston Texans +3 (CG Tech)

        Houston coming off extra rest after a big win on Thursday night. Not really worried about short road trip to Denver. Denver did play KC tough on Sunday, but that was a division game, which is always tough. Houston has been on a roll of late and I will happily grab the 3 with the better team.

        Houston Texans 27
        Denver Broncos 17

        Best of luck to all this week!

          Just realized it was +3 @ -120. So I will take the +2.5, which is available pretty much everywhere else. My mistake.

        5-3 (5-points)

        LA Rams +1-1/2 (MGM)

        I get points with the best team in the league?!?!? I'll take them. NO is not bad at 6-1, but who have they really played? The Dome will be loud, but nothing the Rams can not handle as they play in Seattle once a year and know what to expect. Rams move to 9-0 this week and getting points is icing on the cake.

          POW 3-5

          Houston Texans + 2.5 (MGM)

          The Las Vegas Legendary Math Model likes them. The Gold Sheet likes them. I rate the game a toss up so I perceive +2.5 as value.Deshaun Watson is looking like his pre-injury self with 5 TDP last

          week vs. Miami. Go Texans !!!

            2018 NFL POW (7-1 ATS)

            Kansas City -8.5 (Westgate)

            Chiefs shouldn't have much of a problem here. I hate laying more than a TD, but honestly this should be a beatdown unless KC has a let up. Browns lack the firepower to keep pace and the league hates the new replacement coach, i think the Chiefs keep the momentum going. This line going north come Saturday, weather looks ok so no slowing the Chiefs momentum, Chiefs by double digits.

              Forgot to pick a game last week (Bears)

              Going over all the Breeders' Cup races for my
              Chicago Sun Times work.

              Oh well, on to this week.

              TAMPA BAY plus 7 (5dimes)

              Carolina off a big win might be ready for a let down.
              Quarterback for Tampa Bay plays well 1 or 2 games, then flops.

              Should be close throughout.

              GOOD LUCK TO ALL!

                4-4
                Broncos PK Westgate
                Dont let their record record fool you as the 3-5 Broncos are still a very dangerous team as they showed last week against the red hot Chiefs. Von Miller will be in the backfield more than the Houston backs this week.

                  NFL POW [4-3-1]

                  OVER 54.5 Carolina/Tampa Bay [MGM Mirage]

                  Going back to Over in Tampa games. Their Defense is still very weak and Carolina should feast on this weakness. Cam Newton has been taking care of the ball better this year and if that continues they should put up 35 + points. QB change again for Tampa and Fitz seems to have a better handle of the Offense so him, Evans, Howard, and Jackson should be able to score in the 20's also. This one approaches 60 points.

                  GL to all

                    Taking MINN - 4.5 vs DET
                    This is a huge game for MINN to keep ahead of Chicago, DET just seems to be lack luster and have always been a bad away team, expecting some turnovers on DET side .

                      Kansas City -8
                      This one looks like gift from NFL gods. Chiefs flying high via Mahomes MVP arm and Reid’s superior O game planning: Browns remain mistake by the lake with untested head coach and O coordinator. Shutout possible.

                        3-5

                        New England -3.5 Halftime. Everywhere. NE rounding into mid season form, even with slight blip in Buffalo they still found a way to cover. Rodgers not happy after last week and Rams and when they lose he will try to find another scapegoat. Won't be able to trade just cut. And why do they make such a big deal about comebacks. If you are that good you should be far enough ahead that you don't need to come back. Also making a halftime wager as second half would be past my bedtime.
                        What if they gave an impeachment and nobody cared?

                          between the redskins and the chiefs.....

                          Chiefs -7.5 mgm mirage

                          They should be super prepared for the Kansas City Chiefs with an interim head coach and a new offensive coordinator, right? 2 teams going in opposite directions......
