    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

    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. (8-7-0)

      JETS-JETS-JETS -1.5 (HAIL CAESARS)


      MIA got the D going the 2nd half vs NYJ and Wilson at QB was getting pummeled. JAX not good on D and showed that even without Urban Liar around wasn't enough to get them out of their abyss they are in. It's a dog-ass game, but the home town guys showed some life early in MIA and will now play a lesser team and eek out a win by 3+.

        2021 NFL POW (9-6) 9-points

        Buffalo +1-1/2 (wynn)

        Just like last week, the Bills need a win to get back on top of the AFC East. They will watch the Indy game film and find a way to come out on top in Foxboro.

          NFL POW 6-9 [6 pts]

          Must win out.....fat chance

          OVER 44 Atlanta/Detroit [ Caesars]

          Going back to an Over in the Falcons game. Had the right idea yesterday in 9'ers game yesterday but didn't plan on Atlanta getting inside the 49'ers 5 yard line twice and coming away with zero points. This won't happen vs Detroit. Lions playing with new found confidence on Offense and with the game being played indoors both teams should capitalize on each others below par Defenses. This one gets towards 50 points.

          GL to all

            Threw out a 10 team parlay yesterday. Went 8-1 with the over in Falcons game being the lone loss (would've needed Bears tonight also).

          Minnesota Vikings + 3 Circa
          Their domination of the NFL continues. Beating the mighty Bears of the Midway and now back in their own
          lair LA comes to town on short rest and under the guise that Minnesota is a vastly inferior team. Yes, the
          Minnesota miracle continues, the Rams are due for turnovers and the wrath of the referee. Captain Kirk
          leads his team down the field for a walk off TD and win

            San Francisco -3 (Caesars) The Titans are depleted and will fall to the 49ers on Thursday. The Titans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 and SF is 5-1 ATS in their last 6. The trends continue as the Niners run their way to a victory.

              2021 NFL P.O.W. (7-6-1 )

              Pittsburgh +10 (CAESARS)

              Taking advantage of these extra points since the line is moving fast in the other direction, probably Covid. Some books have Chiefs -7. Plus, Pittsburgh is like a bad cold, they just won't go away.

                7-8 Bills +2 1/2 PointsBet I'm up against the wall and so are the Bills. I see them winning this game straight up in an OT thriller. With better weather, Allen should be able to throw the ball a lot more than he did during the last meeting with the Pats. Those windy conditions hurt Buffalo's offense more than New England's. Even without anti-vaxxer Beasley and all-pro cornerback White, the Bills will find a way and keep their divison champs hopes alive.

                  Miami/New Orleans under 39 Caesars
                  Didnt see any sides I liked this week so I’m going to try and hit an o/u. Two struggling QB’s go head to head in hot muggy Miami = a low scoring game.

                    Rams don’t look in sync to me. Two teams headed in different directions.

                      9-6
                      Miami Pick Circa.
                      Who knows what Ian Book will bring to the table Monday night.
                      And according to a New Orleans TV station, more players still are expected to land on the COVID-19 list.
                      New Orleans had their Super Bowl game last week.
                      This season at the whatever you want to corporate name it bowl, New Orleans only has one ATS cover.
                      And post Tampa Bay Tom Brady games, New Orleans is 1-3 ATS.
                      Miami has covered all but one road game this season.

                        MIAMI DOLPHINS +3 (MGM)

                        I loved the Fins this week based on the uber-over valued Saints wins over the Bucs via shutout along with the Fins misleading score vs Jets. Yes, they won but they dominated and the score doesn't tell that story. Not much to brag about as it is the Jets but the public perception is Saints should roll Fins. I loved it at -3.5 but actually thought I could get 4. Now that Saints a Covid mess and QB uncertainty and line is still at 3. No brainer. Fins win outright regardless of NO quarterback was my initial thoughts anyway.

                          Here is what happened: Rule 6 reads as follows: All lines must be -110 or less (must be posted on above site...no buying 1/2 point)
                          There were a couple of individuals that posted picks for Miami +3 via Bet MGM.
                          But is New Orleans is -3 Even, would that make Miami +3 -120?
                          At that point in time, that is what the website said on Vegas Insider.
                          I was not sure, that is why I went with Even which Circa had earlier today once New Orleans announced their QB change.
                          I had sent a PM to the top man, but never heard back.

                          Bottom line. All of us won, no matter what the spread was.

                          Ah. That explains it and now it makes sense. I've been doing this for years and never even knew that rule. I would accept my fate either way though I did like Miami straight up and said as much. But rules are rules. I apparently missed it. And I'll accept the loss as penalty for not knowing that rule.

                        POW YTD (9-6) Saints +2 v the fish 11:45 am PST Circa

                        5 point swing because taysom hill is out? I am going to pay to find out as Sean Peyton will be back on the sideline and the saints defense isn't going anywhere. I like the Book kid from notre dame, and these teams are mirror images of one another. Monday night home dog is appealing also. Points will be tough to come by all night unless the game becomes a turnover fest. I believe the saints will back up last weeks performance v the bucs and keep Tua and his mates in check. Kamara is the engine that keeps things moving forward for NO, expect he will find his way to 100+ combined yards and a touchdown. Compelling game, think the saints make a late stop and hold on for an important W. 17-13 New Orleans.
