  • 2022 NFL P.O.W. Contest Week #12 (Nov 24-28) ; 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!

    Thru 11 weeks, we are now a combined 311-268-11 (53%) ATS

    Just to show how good the top of our leaderboard is, the top 13 n the standings last week went 10-3 ATS. We also now have 2 entores (BIMMERCANDO & CHAMOINLA) that can clinch playoff spots with a win this week, just as we continue to knock entores from the bottom of the standings. You must have at least 2 points to continue in Week 12.

      2022 POW 5-7 (5-points)

      Miami -11-1/2 Caesers

      Miami is coming off a bye against a Houston team that is ready to settle for the Home draft pick. If the Commandos can beat them by 13 on the road, then Miami should have easy work covering the large number at home.

      POW NFL 4-7

      Cin -1 Circa

      6 of 7 win that Ten have is from team with losing record and other one win was with Washington which is at the bottom of NFC East. The 3 lost is with KC, Buff, NYG. Ten been feasting on bad team, Cincy is opposite so I look for them to show Ten a beat down this Sunday at their home turf. GL everyone and Happy Thanksgiving!!!

        GB / Philadelphia under 45.5 points

        Both teams are struggling on offense lately. I am relying on the defenses to keep the score down to a reasonable level.


        • #6
          Vikings -3 Circa
          Vikes opened minus the hook but line has settled at a FG. Don’t think Minnesota is as bad as they looked against the Boyz and the Pats aren’t as good as their record indicates.

            2022 NFL P.O.W. (5-6-0)


            Whatever the hell happened to MINN vs DAL, won't happen vs NE. Some PFF numbers put MINN at...

            10th on offense (NE 20th)
            12th in passing (NE 25th)
            12th rushing (NE 23rd)
            7th defense (NE 10th)
            8th pass rush (NE 14th)​
            2nd run D (NE 18th)

            The run game will make the difference in this one, helping setup play action. DAL has 1st ranked pass rush, NE is middle of the pack giving Cuz enough time to throw to get a 7-point win on a short week at HOME in the green house.

            2022 NFL P.O.W. (8-3-0)

            New England / Minnesota (Under 42.5 - Circa) I don't trust my Vikings to score many points against a Bill Belichick coached team. I think they do have a bounce back from their debacle against Dallas, but their O and D lines are still dealing with injuries. I also don't think the Patriots have that much in terms of an explosive offense, and I'm picturing a game where both teams' scores are in the low to mid teens. Good luck to all this week. Enjoy the wall to wall football!

              NFL POW 7-4 [7 pts]

              Over 45.5 Miami/Houston [Westgate]

              Miami off a bye should have no problem putting up 30+ points in this one. Houston obviously is a whipped team at this point, but I see them getting some "garbage points" as the game goes on. Miami's weak leak is the secondary and I can see Davis Mills putting up a few points as Miami relaxes. Tua and "his guys" will have their way here. Point total should approach 50.

              GL to all

                Week 12

                P.O.W. - 9-2-0 = 9 pts

                Can I run from a plan that has worked to date?
                Odds are against me like the NJ Devil's NHL run
                (next vs Toronto) and the Boston Bruins' run (broken by Toronto).

                Was ready to jump ship as Pitt's 1st halves have been "overs".
                These teams have lit up the scoreboard so the fear factor is here.
                Playing the present times though and counting on Pitt's D playing
                tight after giving up 37 points Sunday and Indi to do their usual.
                Hope the teams fatten up over the holiday weekend and just
                have that after a high, lazy letdown.

                So, "If it ain't broken....",
                another Under in the 1H with an unfavourable line.
                Kiss of death.

                Pitt-Indi - UNDER 19 - 1st Half
                ( 19 @ Circa)

                  I can't believe I didn't lose. Didn't watch the game as I forgot due to the time difference. Saw results of my picks in a contest and saw the total went over and most points scored in the game was in Q2. A bonus week as the push was like a win. Knew that 1/2 point was going to nail me.

                  Nice pick though!I’m glad I bought 1/2 point and I barely hit the over 2nd half.

              • #11
                Pow 5-6
                Cowboys/Giants under 45 1/2
                This line has steamed up from 42. Everything clicked for the Boyz last week and their offense should revert back to the mean with Giants doing zero.

                  2022 NFL P .O .W (9-2) Titans+3

                  I gladly take the field goal.Tennessee is coming off a victory over Green Bay and will use that momentum to defeat Cincinnati at home on Sunday. Tennessee has the NFL's best running back in Derrick Henry, who has 1,010 yards rushing and the Titans will use that running to wear down the Bengals defense. Tennessee will use sustained drives with the rushing of Henry, to keep Cincinnati's offense off the field. The Bengals are likely to play once again without their leading receiver Ja’Marr Chase, who is recovering from a hip injury.

                    Thanks to my co-leader bimmercando for the observation.My apologies for the mistake, I take Titans +2.5 at the South Point.Although I don’t think the spread will come in to play.

                    Thank you both for checking and the honesty... It really helps these weeks with so much going on that others step up and help me out. I really do appreciate it!! Best of luck!

                    I am so glad that you didn't take my comment as an attack or offensively.
                    I thought you had an honest oversight and wanted you to have the chance
                    to correct it or support it. Thanks and the best of luck as always!
                    I don't like the fact that in my play that I could have had that extra 1/2 point if I waited.
                    1 day to wait. Tenn is holding their own as is Cinci. Points are key here!

                  P.O.W. 7 - 4
                  Lions +9.5 CIRCA

                  Getting this week's pick out of the way early. Bills are back in Detroit again on short rest and still dealing with a snowbound Buffalo. They have not really been blowing teams out this season and Detroit is playing much better, riding a winning streak and don't really get blown out at home. Not saying a win is in their immediate future but covering 9.5 seems pretty realistic.

                    POW: 7-4
                    KANSAS CITY -15 (Circa)
                    Chiefs have far too much fire power for Rams. Reed, Mahomes & Co. look to run up score on weak LA defense. Enjoy Thanksgiving all.

                      Geez, I know the Rams offense is in tatters, but has their defense really regressed that much? Injuries, or just poor play?

                    I just don't see Minny bouncing back after that ass whooping. That was ugly
