    NFL POW 11 PTS
    RAMS -3.5 RISKING 5 pts

    Rams have the cards number over the last few years , cards stumbled down the stretch, if Stafford can avoid throwing a pic 6 rams have a big shot to win and cover.

      Sorry, J.Herb, but I have to void this pick as the deadline was the 5:15 p.m. PT scheduled kickoff of the Cards-Rams game and this wasn't put in until 5:53 p.m. PT (Rams might even been up 7-0 already).

      Anyway, you're still eligible to keep playing as you don't lose any points and still have 11.

        Doesn't matter, bottom dwellers like us have no shot with max 5-point wagers. It would actually be a contest if we could bet whatever we wanted. No Cinderella stories in this thing.

        Seahawk Rick loves busting my balls on this rule, but several things wrong with his argument:

        1) "No shot"? This assumes that if you go 4-0 that someone above you will go 4-0 and beak-block you? No guarantee of that, but, hey, if you go 4-0 and no one above you does, there's your Cinderella story. Very possible.

        2) Every knows coming into the season that the people who have the best record and accumulate the most units will have those units for the playoffs. If someone had a better record than you and goes 4-0 in the playoffs, they deserve to win over you.

        3) It's like whining in a Survivor pool that it's not fair that you can't win just because you lost 1 game than the winners and don't have a way to "go all-in" to catch up. The rules are the rules and actually quite fair

          Or 5 units per day would work rather than per weekend.

          Bucky, that is a GREAT compromise. Makes the leaders have to make more picks and show why they are the leaders!

            Says 5:53pm on your time stamp JHerb, BUT, the time stamp on my comment is an hour later than Pacific Time when I wrote it...It appears to this bottom dweller that you made your bet at 4:53pm Throw the flag!!!!

            Wow...the time came up as 9:37 when it's only 8:37 here in Vegas.

            AFTER FURTHER REVIEW, MY RULING IS REVERSED AND J.herb WILL GET CREDIT FOR HIS WINNING PICK.

            Thanks to Seahawk Rick for the assist...I'm guessing I never noticed the site's clock didn't "fall back" when Daylight Savings Time ended. Gonna have to check the settings.

                Lol! Sign me up!

                You still have a challenge left since you won this one!

                King Cotton is asleep at the switch, still mourning his Falcon's sucky season and Ohio St losing to Michigan. 😁

                I know... Seattle teams have limped through their season's, but the Mariners are gonna win the World Series to make up for it! Lol!

              Weather Reports. Only Green Bay is going to be a factor.

              Nashville, TN, Saturday afternoon, 4:30 PM: 35, very little wind.

              Green Bay,WI, Saturday night, 8:15 PM:10 degrees, a little wind at 10 mph and a Real Feel of -2. Everybody here on VFV is gonna be on the Packers, especially if -5.5 is offered. It seems to be -6 across the Board, and will probably go up depending on Jimmy G., Bosa and Warner injuries. Even -6 seems cheap given all that and the extra rest GB has gotten.

              Tampa, FL, Sunday 3 PM: Sunny and 60 degrees.

              KC, MO, Sunday at 6:30 PM: Cloudy and 36 degrees. A heat wave for the Bills!
