  • 2022 NFL P.O.W. Contest Week 2 (Sept 15-19); Post Selections Here

    This is the thread for the 2022 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:

    6. All lines must be -110 or less (must be posted on above buying 1/2 point)

    7. Only the books listed on this page (except for the Opening Line and Consensus) may be used in this contest.

    8. The following selections are allowed: Full Game Side, Full Game Total, First Half Side, First Half Total (NO MONEYLINES ALLOWED)

    9. Plays MUST be submitted each week by kickoff of last scheduled game.

    10. 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.")

    11. 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)

    12. The first couple of weeks I will give the benefit of the doubt to any newcomers on here...veterans, you know the rules, LMEAO

    13. NO EDITING!!! (ironic, as this was edited by DaveTuley LMEAO) 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

    14. Week 18 will be worth 2 points for a correct selection and 1 point for a push.

    15. 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!

      2022 NFL P.O.W. (1-0)

      278 Rams -10.5 (Westgate)

      I think the Rams kick the shit out of the Falcons. Atlanta off a last-second loss now has to fly across country to play a pissed off Rams team that supposedly played on Thursday but for those watching - the Rams never showed up and got rolled. Now they have a few extra days to think about it. They stay home meaning one more day of rest than Falcons who have to fly to LAX. I think this one gets really ugly. REALLLLLLLY FAST! FWIW I think Rams in 1h laying -7 at most is the best play but this sure looks like a 34-10 kind of game​

        Unfortunately I agree...My Falcons did what they have been known to do, blow a lead late...and they keep coming up with new ways to do it. Yesterday it was fumbling a snap on 3rd and a foot at midfield that would of secured the win. Then not going for it on 4th, punting and having The Crab King throw 2 beautiful passes to get into FG range in under 25 seconds...

        But I we head west for B2B games. At least they are going to stay in Seattle all next week ahead of the game with the Hawks..but it's going to be a long, long season I'm afraid for me and my fellow fans of the flock😥

        The Falcons played well yesterday until the end, of course. Fans must still be shell shocked by the nightmare collapse in the Super Bowl. I think there is cause for optimism though. I like Mariota, but I am biased as a University of Oregon Alum. He played well and threw well yesterday, but two fumbles, one lost, killed it for him. He will come back. He's tough. But losing a home game that you had in the bag is a killer to begin the season. Now, you gotta go out there and win one on the road that you were not supposed to.

        Rams now down to -10. Opened as high as -13.5 somewhere!

      NFL 1-0

      First post was a success hope it continue 😂

      NOLA +3 Circa

      Going back the NOLA this week, Tampa didn't really impress me much last night, so give me 3 points at home with division rival

      Good luck this week everyone!

        2022 NFL P.O.W. (1-0-0 YTD)

        Pittsburgh Steelers +1 (Mirage)

        Well, if my wife finds out I'm taking this team, she will kill me, especially after what happened yesterday against her beloved Bengals. But hey, this is all business 😉...As bad as Trubisky has been over the years, he actually wasnt THAT bad against CIN. Just under 200 yds and a TD, but the main thing is that he didn't turn the ball over. I mean PIT was destroyed in the stats game, but they had the kicker at the end that was able to make it count. They will do much better this week than the 267 total yards they had on the road. NE is a train wreck right now. I think Hoodie probably wishes he would of hung up his whistle after last season. Mac Jones is banged up and uncertain if he can play. If he can't go, it's on the shoulder of Brian Hoyer to lead the Pats. As bad as these two starting QBs are, I will actually take the better of the two and the one playing at home. Give me the Steelers in a horrible game to watch, lol.

        New England Patriots 9
        Pittsburgh Steelers 17

        Best of luck this week!

          I was very surprised to see NE favored in this one, and it's at Pittsburgh! And especially if you say that Mac Jones is questionable. Why is NE Favored?

          I’m guessing because NE is still a heavy public team, watt is out and no one has any faith in trubisky to throw for 300 yards and have a clean game.

        Bengals -7 (everywhere)

        Dallas just lost Dak for 6-8 weeks. They looked terrible on all sides of the ball even before Dak got hurt. Bengals, particularly Burrow looked terrible last week with 4 ints and a passer rating of 62. Burrow will rebound from the worst NFL game of his career and the Bengals will rebound with a double digit win.

          Will their kicking game ( snapper ) be fixed?

        Jets +6.5 ... Wynn

        Cleveland struggled with Carolina.last week and the Browns are laying 6.5 points against the Jets. I think that there might be an actual upset here. So, I will take the 6.5 point spot in this game.


        • #8

          Seattle +9 (WYNN)

          Seattle looked decent against Denver. Granted there was "A LOT" to play for on opening night, but I don't see SF being able to cover 2 scores. Geno looked comfortable enough against Denver and a similar performance will keep this game inside the number.

            Why didn't you take them last week like the one guy in Circa, and one guy in Adam's Survivor pools did?! LOL!! Roll, Geno, Roll!!!! They get the rookie RB back for his first game, so the ground game might take it up a notch. Bet the under.

          Record (1-0-0).
          San Francisco -8.5
          San Francisco comes home after opening the season on the road. Played a game in a monsoon. With our Kittle, not sure if he will be back this week. They catch a Seattle team that was so high on emotion opening week facing Russell Wilson. Going on the road on a short week no way they can come out with that same intensity have to figure they will be flat. On the other hand San Fran has something to prove thier defense will harass Geno Smith or whoever they put back there this, will create turnovers. They Winn this game going away.

            2022 NFL P.O.W. 0-1-0
            Chicago Bears +10 Westgate
            They beat the 49'ers last week and they had a lot of hype. Fields seems like a pretty decent nfl QB
            GB seemed to get it together late but couldn't put up points. their rookie wide outs didn't catch a
            perfect pass. Now I get 10 points which seems like more and more each passing year.

              Pittsburgh +1.5. Southpoint

              Taking Pittsburgh to start out 2-0. Having your ex D Coordinator now be your O Coordinator= the worst offense in the NFL. Think Pitt does enough to win the game. Might be a 9-3 game.

                2022 NFL P.O.W. 1-0-0
                Raiders/cards over 51.5 (Circa)
                McDaniels should be salivating over game plan against Cards depleted secondary. Carr, with his new stud Adams should have big day through air.Murray and Hollywood Brown should be good for some scores. 31-23 kinda game

                      2022 NFL P .O .W (1-0)

                      Tampa bay at New Orleans under 44.5 (Wynn).

                      The number keep dropping,It’s already 44 in most places.The under has cashed in 6 of Saints 8 games as well as in 4 of the last 5 when New Orleans has played as a home dog.Tampa Bay gave up only 3 points in its opening game against the Cowboys and only 22 points we scored between the two.
