  • 2022 NFL P.O.W. Contest Week 4 (Sept 29 - Oct 3); Post Plays 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!​

    I'm pretty sure all updates and changes to each record have been corrected. If you still see something I have missed, please let me know. I am doing all of this this season on my phone, as my laptop took a shit, lol.

      Don't forget we have our first London/9:30am EDT game this week between Minnesota and New Orleans. So if making a play on this game remember the start time😁


      • #4

        Minnesota -2.5 ..... Westgate

        Saints' quarterback Winston is still the turnover machine that he was in the past. He is playing despite an injured back. Minnesota is certainly the more talented team.The Vikings should not have a problem to win this game by at least a touchdown.

          I am looking at this, too. Smart to get it before it goes to 3

        0-3 Yikes

        Miami +3

        Short week, I am going to take what is the better team so far. Miami has shown that they can score points and play a shootout, or buckle down and defend a high powered offense. Although Cincy got their first win against the Jets, I do not see the offense being able to keep up with Miami.

          Glad you flipped off MIA to CINN on our Survivor picks!!!! Who knows how the game would have gone with Tua not getting spiked on the turf.

        NFL P.O.W. (2-1-0)

        Las Vegas -2 Wynn

        I never thought LV was making the playoffs this year but did expect them to be much improved. Well at 0-3 this is do or die. If they lose this week they might as well go 0-17. I think desperation, playing at home and playing against an offense that is struggling to find its way, Da Raiders get their first win of the season.


        • #7
          N.F.L. POW (1-2-0)

          LA Rams +2 1/2 (South Point)

          Rams getting points against a team that can't score? Seems like a sucker line but I'm going to be that sucker. Niners will be missing Trent Williams so Jimmy G will be under even more pressure this week. Don't think the Niners defense can slow the Rams down enough to win.

            N.F.L. POW (1-2-0)
            Bengals - 3 1/2 (Everywhere)

            Short week, Miami's defense played like 90 minutes in that game against Buffalo. Again, Miami's defense played forever in 90 degree heat, and now they go on the road, short week after winning their second miracle win in a row. They were outstatted everywhere but the scoreboard. Tua sure looked like he was concussed. Bengals started to look like the team we saw last year, Burrow was much sharper. Plus they are worried about the hurricane down here in Florida, do you think they are focused? Recipe for a Bengals blowout.

              Also some talk Tuanot 100% but line will tell you that.Another team you can go against is Bills.They actually had a few players going to locker room in second half for IV’s.Whatever the temperature it is 10 degrees hotter on playing field.You could see line go to 5 by KO

              Agree with all points. Including blowout. Tied all my bets to this game - because I'm stupid - but also because as a Fins fan and watching every snap I can say they have received nearly every single lucky break to assist in these wins and inflate the perception and media narrative. Fins are good - but lucky breaks even out.

            1-1-1 (Not 1-2 as reflected in the standings)
            Washington +3 Caesars
            Despite the efforts of Cooper Rush to invigorate this team, the Cowboys are still one of the most inconsistent teams in the NFL. Commanders (hate saying that word), will come into Dallas motivated after the shellacking to the Eagles and will pull off the upset.

              Broncos +2 1/2 Nugget
              Everyone is saying Vegas “has” to win this game. To win this game, the Raiders will have to score and I just can’t see them putting up more than 10 points against this Broncos defense. Hoping Russel Wilson has come to the realization that he’s better off as a scrambling QB than simply a pocket passer.

                2022 NFL P.O.W. (2-1-0 YTD)

                Cincinnati Bengals -3 (Wynn)

                ​Much like last week, the Bills are the better team than the Dolphins (o anyone for that matter) yet the Dolphins came away with the victory. Was just such a bad spot for the Bills. Likewise., this is a terrible spot for the Dolphins especially when you compile it with the last weeks of energy exertion the Fins have endured. Last week was brutal for the defense in terms of physical exhaustion now they are asked to travel on the road on a short week and beat a team that's starting to figure things out. The Dolphins are the better team but in this spot a letdown is so predictable. As a diehard Fins fan this pains me but I just think it's too much to ask of a defense that spent 90 days on the field in a physical pressure packed rivalry in 90 degree temps and 100 percent humidity on a short week. The fear here is the Fins offense is actually well rested and could hang 30+. I'm betting with the spot at this number. Hope I'm wrong!

                  Must have been a glitch in the VISN line feed then. VegasInsider and this site show the line movement for Wynn. No biggie. Looks like that half point won't come into play anyway.

                  Congrats on the win. Bengals more than covered that 3 or 3.5. I also used your reasoning and florabamaboy's post above to pick Cinci in two of my paid entries in the BetOnline Pick 5 Contest. Too bad about Tua. He really got slammed to the ground hard and violently. That turf can be a lot harder than natural grass. Almost like concrete. I hope he is okay. It's a freakin' violent sport and guys are getting bigger and faster. They also pile-drove Mostert into the turf after the whistle.

                  Thanks and congrats! It didn't matter and no worries either way but what a bummer the site can glitch like that. I refreshed and saw Wynn was only one at -3. Didn't matter but that matters. lol Agreed about Tua, what a crazy and polarizing media storm that has taken place this week over it. Something is broken. Hope he's good to go and healthy sooner rather than later - however long that takes. Cheers!

                POW RECORD (2-0-0)
                Jaguars +6.5 wynn
                going with the Jags which is much improved this year with a NFL head coach iinstead of urban Meyer. Jags are very talented and playing hard every week. They take on a talented eagles team that comes home after playing a road game within the division. The eagles come home from playing an overmatched Washington team and really beating them badly. The jags have good young talent at all skill positions and I think they will keep this well within the 6.5

                  NE PLUS 10 1/2 ( Westgate)

                  T wo weeks ago I saw the GB packers play theBears and they were laying 10
                  This week again they lay 10 plus, and even with Hoyer I think NE stays inside this overlay--
                  I'll try this - also fits a trend that has worked for years for me....

                  NFL POW 1-1

                  Cardinals/Panthers UNDER 21 1st half (Circa)

                  Not seeing where the points will come from here. Cardinals offense is broken, every play looks like a pickup game on the playground with Murray running around trying to make something happen. Panthers offense has been a mess too. Looks like the remnants of Hurricane Ian could play a factor in this game also. I like the full game under too but feel the 1sr half line offers better value.

                    2022 NFL P.O.W. (1-2-0 YTD)

                    Over 52 Bills/Ravens

                    You have a banged up Bills team that can still move the ball. I see each team getting into the 30's in this game which will easily put this game over the mark. Both teams can move the ball at will.
