  • 2021 NFL P.O.W. Contest Week 17 (Jan 2-3); 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!

        If you only knew of what that win potentially cost me in a Survivor Pool...Still alive, but we probably would have split with a ATL loss. Your guys are still alive!!!

      2021 NFL P.O.W. (9-7-0)

      NEW ENGLAND BILLY BOYS -15.5 (BET MGM)


      Yeah, should wait to see how Covid goes with NE, but what the hell, roll the dice! JAX on the road again vs. a NE team that will be verrrrrry salty after the BUFF loss. They have everything to play for and Billy B. will get his boys ready to fire hard and beat down JAX like a red-headed stepchild. NE's 3rd ranked D will hold the Jags to 10 and roll up 30 on their side of the scoreboard.

        NFL P.O.W. (10-6-0)

        KC LAY 41/2 (Circa)

        This number gonna jump Last week Cincy looked like it could win SB

        Now they play a real team

          NFL POW 9-7

          KC -4.5 (South Point)

          Same reasoning as Compass Rose really. KC is running strong right now and not looking like they will slow down anytime soon. Cincy looked great last week but this is a huge step up in weight class. KC motivated by the #1 playoff seed so expect full effort. GLTA this week.

            NFL POW 10-6 (playoff bound!!)

            Houston +13 (Caesars)

            I wanted to stick with the AFC East, but could not decide between NE and Buffalo, so I went with the team getting 2 scores and riding a 2-game winning streak against a team coming off a mini-bye and an injured QB. SF should still win the game without Jimmy G, but it will be closer than what it should. Houston hangs in the game long enough to make the 13 points count.

              NFL P.O.W [11-5-0]

              Kansas City - 4 1/2 (Caesars) The Bengals looked great against the Ravens, but the Chiefs are on fire and still need to win to wrap up home field. KC's D will tame Burrow and his wideouts and Mahomes and the offense keep rolling.

                NFL P.O.W. (7-7-1?)

                Bengals +5 1/2 (MGM)

                Might as well go contrarian here. The Chiefs are playing like their Super Bowl winning year, maybe even better. But I think the Bengals can hang at home. Excellent field goal kicker, maybe the next coming of Joe Montana as QB, a very solid running back in Mixon, and as many weapons on offense if not more than KC. Granted, coaching edge and experience goes to KC, but i think the Bengals will take this one to the wire, so i grab the points with the barking home dog.

                  Woo Hoo!!
                  Awaiting week 18's double point system.

                  POW - 10 & 6


                  Houston/San Fran UNDER 44 - MGM


                  Hstn had their moment in the limelight last week.
                  Now they'll be shut down as SF watches the game film
                  and will cut the openings.

                    POW 10-6
                    YAY! Playoffs! Playoffs?
                    Pittsburgh +3.5
                    Circa
                    Happy trails MNF regular season broadcast for 2021.
                    And Happy trails Big Ben playing in his last home game in the ketchup bottle.

                    Pittsburgh 19-1 SU in their last 20 MNF games.
                    As an underdog in Week 5 or later, Tomlin’s Steelers are 35-13-1 ATS, covering 71% of the time. They’re 29-21 straight up in those game . (failed last week)
                    It gets even better when Pittsburgh’s at home, where Tomlin improves to 12-2-1 ATS as a dog, covering 86% of the time by almost eight points per game. The Steelers are 11-4 straight up in those games and have won their last five games as a home underdog outright.
                    Big Ben is 24-2-1 lifetime against the Browns — his last regular-season loss to them was in 2014, and their last regular-season win in Pittsburgh was almost 20 years ago.

                    Kevin Stefanski is an ugly 1-9 ATS in division games.
                    Here is Cleveland's playoff way to get in:

                    Cleveland need to wins their next 2 games,
                    Second, they need the first-place Bengals to lose out to also finish 9-8. Cleveland can take care of half the Cincinnati formula in Week 18 at home. Cincinnati also has the toughest AFC matchup there is in Week 17, vs. No. 1 seed Kansas City.
                    Third, they need the second-place Ravens (8-7) to lose one of their two remaining games to finish no higher than 9-8. That's also reasonable, given the Ravens host the NFC No. 3 Rams in Week 17 and host the Steelers in Week 18. Baltimore is also in total freefall, having lost four consecutive games.
                    Forth, if Cleveland loses Monday night, Pittsburgh needs to lose week 18.
                    Per Sporting News.com.

                      POW 8-7-1
                      Hmmmmm going to try lots of points
                      ATL +14 1/2 Caesers
                      Just too many points Buffalo is good but their Defense isn't the greatest. ATL can score
                      and in my mind you have to take the (3) scores difference

                        Bears/Giants under 37 1/2 Southpoint
                        Two bad offenses here. Looks something like 20-13 Bears.

                            Not sure how it got cut off but I also added that GB wants HFA. Not sure if they get it with this win but they will def lose it with a loss.

                          2021 NFL P.O.W. (12-4-0)

                          TENNESSEE TITANS -3 (MGM)

                          This number opening at TEN -3.5 felt like the books begging for Fins money. The number tells the entire story here for me here. Dolphins off a Primetime impressive albeit misleading dominant victory against a motivated Titans team as a win will clinch the Division title. On 10 days rest versus the Dolphins on a short week. There's also the Ryan Tannehill motivation factor if that's a thing. As a Dolphins fan we can call this an emotional hedge - and I really hope I get this game wrong. But that number makes TEN an auto play here.

                            Yeah, if we bet against our favorite team, it's a nice hedge play. We win either way! GL!

                            There you go! It's now down to Tenny -3 -110 at all of the Books. Money must be pouring in on your Dolphins to move it from Tenny -3.5 to -3. Or maybe there is a COVID issue on Tenny?

                            I see that! That is both awesome and terrifying! Downpouring in TEN with that FIns "Cover 0 Blitz" all day - becomes belief in whether or not Tannehill crumbles. For the sake of this "contest" I'm already locked in so can't change back to that -3 / -110. I'll be so pissed if Fins lose by 3. The worst of both worlds! Haha!
