  • 2021 NFL P.O.W. Contest Week 15 (Dec 16-20); 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!

    2021 NFL P.O.W. (8-6 YTD)

    Green Bay -2 (Caesars)

    Been waiting on this to open up. Was more confident in this play than todays KC play but here we are. Gonna roll with the A-A-Ron train once again! That's it. That's my reasoning. GLA

          2021 NFL P.O.W. (8-6-0)

          GREEN BAY -2 (HAIL CAESARS)


          A-Rod is the effing man and he owns many teams, not just CHI. Lamar hurt his ankle and I don't know if he'll play, but if he does, possibly means he's not as active as normal and the GB D has been solid and will keep him from having a giant game with his legs. If Huntly plays, even better. The play calling and schemes by GB on offense are just killing teams and it will be enough to beat BALT by 3.

            NFL POW 6-8 [6 pts]

            OVER 45 San Francisco/Atlanta [Caesars]

            9'ers scoring almost 30 points per game last 5 weeks since Kittle has come back. Atlanta's strength also lays in it's Offense. QB Ryan can definitely hold his own vs Jimmy G in the QB battle, so I can see this one getting to 50 points in the bay area.

            GL to all

              2021 POW 8-6 (8-points)

              Buffalo -10 (Caesars)

              Finally broke out of the slump last week, so heres to keeping it going!!!! Buffalo is 2 games behind NE for the division and could be a week to make up a game as NE goes up against Indy and Buffalo is home against a struggling Carolina team. Buffalo executed well in the 2nd half against the Bradys (and the refs). Carolina wont be able to keep up and the Bills get a big win to right the ship.

                NE +2 1/2 Wynnbet
                Love Bellichick in December as he doesn’t call the dogs off until he has his coveted playoff spot locked in. I’ll also take Mac Jones over Carson Wentz any day.

                  NFL POW 8-6

                  KC -3 (everywhere)

                  The last two weeks have shown I know nothing so going with KC on the road in a division game - what the hell. LAC not much of a home crowd, KC offense and defense looking good in recent weeks. Charger D not looking too good so figuring KC can cover the small price. Good luck to all this week.

                    Chargers +3 Caesars
                    KC’s resurgence has primarily been on the backs of sub par teams. Chargers tough at home. I’ll take the points.

                      POW 9-5 YTD
                      New England +2.5 Circa

                      In the words of the bubble gum rock group The Bay City Rollers: S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y Night!
                      Gonna watch NE Indy on my flat screen TV till the game is through.
                      On Saturday night, Saturday night.

                      No way I go against Bill getting points.
                      Not when he is 21-11 ATS with extra time to prepare per Walter Football.com
                      Nor when Belichick is 26-11-1 ATS (70%) in toss-up spreads at three or under. He’s also 30-14-2 ATS (68%) as an underdog.
                      Was surprised to see a line flip in game.
                      Let's see if this game get me to the Bo Derek number 10.

                        Gotta love those Bill B replies to media..
                        Almost every question was a reply of :
                        We didn't play well.
                        We didn't coach well.
                        Team needs a miracle for number 1 seed after that loss.
                        Oh well, try next week to get to number 10.

                      POW 6-7
                      Browns/Raiders UNDER 19 - 1st half (Stations)

                      Obviously a low total already but where are the points coming from in this game? Browns offensive line decimated by COVID, Raiders just haven't been the same lately. Looks like weather may be a factor too, potential rain with 20 mph winds. Sounds like a snooze fest to me.

                        Chiefs Over 53 1/2 (Wynn)

                        Chiefs now playing like 2 years ago, and also missing a key defensive started tonight. Think we get fireworks. Plus, tired of losing on Sunday games so let's try a Thursday night special!
