  • 2022 NFL P.O.W. Contest Week 9 (Nov 3-7); 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: www.vsin.com/odds/NFL/

    6. All lines must be -110 or less (must be posted on above site...no 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)...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

    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!

      5-3

      Baltimore -3 ... Westgate

      New Orleans blowout over the Raiders give a better line on Baltimore. Baltimore is much better than its 5-3 record.

        2022 NFL P.O.W. (4-4-0)

        SEATTLE SUPER SEACHICKENS! -2 (CIRCA)


        Off the big win vs the G-Men, where the D showed up for a 3rd week in-a-row, and shut down Mr. Barkley and company, I'll take the chickens down in the desert where I'll be in attendance for the NFC west bird teams to have a peck off. ARI showed a little more effort at MINN, but the SEA offense is cranking it up, and between Tyler Lockett giving NYG a TD off a fumble on the 3, plus a drop for a TD, the game could have been a wider margin. In fairness, NYG punt returner helped by fumbling two though. He needs to learn how to speak Canadian. Not sure they let him on the team plane back to NY. Maybe a Greyhound up to Vancouver from here!

        PFF (Numbers might update Monday) has the Seachickens ranked Special in offense, and ARI a 23rd. SEA D is at 25th, and ARI at 29th. ARI doesn't have high grades in any category, but one. ARI has the 3rd ranked run game, but with what the SEA D did vs NYG, it shows the changes on defense from 3-weeks ago are taking hold and the numbers will need a little time to make up for the first 4-weeks of less than stellar D. Geno...Geno...Geno!​

          I think you should grade it as -2......oh wait, he still gets the win......

          Can grade at -9! 😁

        4-4 Seahawks +2 Everywhere. I'm jumping on the Seattle bandwagon. This team has some serious mojo going. This line is going to continue moving down and might be pick em by game time. Think they have the wrong team favoured here. Geno and company win in the desert with their biggest fan in attendance.

          NFL POW 3-5 (3-points)

          Tennessee +12.5 (westgate)

          2 playoffs teams battling it out at 5-2. KC is good, but 12-1/2 is a big number to cover. KC will win this game, but Tennessee will keep it within 10.

            NFL POW 6-2 [6 pts.]

            OVER 44 Miami vs Chicago

            Bears are purging their D roster by trading Quinn and Smith in the last week. Just gave up 49 points vs Dallas and can't see a reason how they stop Tua and his WR's this week. On the flip side side the Bears O has scored 62 points the last two weeks and the Dolphin secondary is very banged up and could and should be exploited. Miami should get near 30 in this game and that only leaves the Bears needing only to get into the mid-teens. This game goes to 50 points or so.

            GL to all

                NFL P.O.W. [6-2-0]

                Atlanta +3.5 (Golden Nugget) The Falcons have been very good ATS and I just don't trust the Chargers heading east and playing in the early window. I think LA is the better team but the Falcons keep it close at home and possibly pull out another win.

                2022 NFL P .O .W (7-1) Colts at Patriots over 39.5 (Wynn)

                The OVER has cashed in 8 of New England's last 9 played at home as well as in 11 of the last 16 that the Patriots have played versus an opponent from the AFC. The OVER has cashed in each of the last six times that Indianapolis has visited New England.

                GL.

                  Good luck as the Colts are terrible.
                  On the road this season Colts avg 10.5 ppg ( open air - outdoors )
                  vs 16 pts game all. Total line is right on the numbers. Hope u get lucky!

                4-3-1
                Cards -1 1/2 Nugget
                Cards opened -4 and this line steamed down to 1 1/2. I may be wrong, but I just don’t think the Seahawks are the real deal. Redbirds play tough at home and have made a living by beating overhyped teams.

                  Pow 3-5
                  Washington +4 Circa
                  Vikes almost lost to AZ at home last week while the Commanders continue to improve. The 4 at home looks very juicy here.

                    Baltimore -2.5 Golden Nugget

                    Ravens 4th in DVOA, Saints 22nd

                    Saints don't have a QB. Line seems too good to be true. Overreaction to the big win over Las Vegas?


                    The NFC South is horrific. Saints may win the division but they are a bad team.

                    Give me the Ravens to win this one on the road. I'd guess this closes at -3 or -3.5.

                      2022 NFL P. O. W. Contest (3-5-0 YTD)

                      LA Chargers/Atlanta Falcons OVER 24 (1st Half) (Westgate)

                      I know the common thinking is that with a running team like ATL, that the UNDER is the way to go; And that a team coming off their bye week, like LAC might be a bit rusty, especially with a banged up QB........ BUT.. when that rushing team (ATL) is going against the 32nd ranked rush defense, AND the team off the bye (LAC) is a passing team going against the 32nd ranked pass defense, I can see this total hitting the 60+ mark, like last week's barn-burner in ATL... I just hope and pray that this week's game doesn't take another 6 or 7 years off my life like last week's did🤦🏻‍♂️... But if we can get the SU win, it's all for good😁

                      Halftime Score LA Chargers 17
                      Atlanta Falcons 20

                      Best of luck to all this week...

                        P.O.W. (5-2-0)
                        This weeks pick
                        Bengals -7 (WYNN)
                        The bengals come home from a disgusting effort on national tv. They are getting the panthers that won 2 weeks ago. On the road again this week after losing a heartbreaker in Atlanta last week. Just a horrible spot for this panthers team that has traded thier best players and fired a coach. Granted they have been playing good. This is just a horrible spot for them. The bengals are missing their best player in chase, but have receivers that can make up his production. Bengals win 32-17.
