  • 2021 NFL P.O.W. Contest Week 18; 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. (9-8)

      452 Lions +11 (Caesars)

        POW 9 - 8

        Dallas -1.5 Caesars

        Dallas is just a better team and i don't think they want to limp into playoffs on two losses. Defense should dominat the birds Plus Im in harrisburg Home of Micah Parsons this will be heavily attended by cowboy fans just like the last 2 east coast visits Should be the highlight game of the week

          That will be the: Raiders/Chargers game in a winner-take-all Playoff push. The atmosphere a Allegiant should be amazing

            Lines are going quick
            -6 Washington Circa
            Opened at -4 If Chicago can trounce them then so can the Redskins
            From ESPN Mike Glennon recorded a QBR of 0.0 yesterday. He did not have enough plays to officially qualify, but if he had, it would have been the worst QBR game in the history of the metric -- dating back to 2006.
            How much can he improve in a week?
            I think Washington can do a TD

              2021 NFL POW 10-7

              MIAMI +6-1/2 (WYNN)

              This is my play for Seahawk Rick, and I am headed back to the AFC East. Since circa 2013, the Fish have only lost 2 games in Miami to NE and most of those were Brady years. Whether Miami had a playoff shot or not, they usually come out to play against the Pats. With no playoffs, this is Miami's SuperBowl.

                I hope you're right and they beat NE, as you know how I am lamenting the fact that I didn't try to save them for W18 to have an option in a Survivor pool I'm still alive in.

                Hail Tua!!!!!!

              2021 NFL POW 8-7-1

              Cincinnati +3 MGM

              Payback time. Doubt the Browns risk anything here with nothing to play for. Bengals still playing for seeding, plus avenge the beatdown.

                News? Browns are now favored by 6! Burrow must be sitting out?

            • #9
              10-7 playoff bound!
              Falcons +4 1/2 Caesars
              Saints have outside chance at playoffs here with a win plus a 49’ers loss to the Rams. Problem is the Saints are just not that good and I feel that ATL will win this game straight up.

                Rare that I make an accurate game call that was correct rather than a lucky win.
                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 = 11 & 6

                Need the 2x pointer!

                Jax/Indi UNDER 44.5 - Caesars-Circa


                Jax may squeak one out in this home field adv battle however barring turnovers seeing the rookie pull one off in a 23-21 run to the wire

                    Why? I clicked VI link and saw the line posted for Caesars. ANYONE could have done the same.

                      When a line moves big because of news like COVID or like Rodgers not playing, or the Dallas game that steviev picked where the Cowboys announce they WILL play starters, some of the lines on VegasInsider will not move for hours. The actual book or casino has moved their line, but there is a lag before some are updated on VegasInsider. Some do this every week in this contest. Just wait for a big line move due to COVID or injuries or resting players and you'll find a VegasInsider line that is still at the old number.

                      For example, Baker Mayfield has been announced as out and the the game has gone from Cleveland -3 to Cinci -3, but on VegasInsider, BetMGM still shows Cleveland -3 -110, so you can get Cinci +3 -110 for until it updates. Maybe check to see if Joe Burrow is going to play first. He had a gimpy knee. Even though they might be able to improve their seed, it's not a big deal and they might decide to rest him. But maybe they would still be a good pick at +3 with their backup. GL!

                        You are correct VI is always behind Example if you look on line moves Green bay -11 was only available at that on Dec 30 when caesaers posted the opening lineon Jan 4 it was green bay minus 2. If covid is still around next year maybe we dont post plays to at least tues.

                          2021 NFL P.O.W. (10-7-0)

                          BALTIMORE THREE-EYED RAVENS -5.5 (BET MGM)


                          I just despise Ben the rapist, who should be in prison, and not heading to Canton. What a crok of shit he is. He looks up at the sky after a TD because he knows he's lucky to be walking free on the streets.

                          I'm guessing Huntley starts at QB, and now PITT will have their hands full trying to keep him from running all over the place. Baker was like an iceberg the other night, but now they need to chase the Roadrunner down! BEEP-BEEP! BALT has a slim shot at the playoffs, but they have a chance. I'll take the very average BALT team that held serve vs LAR will find a way to beat down Benny Boy...I hope they sack him 100-times.
