  • 2022 NFL P.O.W. Contest Week #13 (Dec 1-5); 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. (6-6-0)


      Love Dan Campbell, love the fight that this team has. Coming off a mini-bye and the near upset of one of the better teams in the NFL on T-Day. Jax isn't one of the better teams in the NFL, and IF the kitties put up the same effort they did vs BUFF, and the in the 3-wins before that, they get a W. Decent run game, and Goff isn't effing things up too much. I've gone win, then a loss every other week this season, and this is the L week! 😁​

        2022 NFL POW 6-6 (6-points)

        Cleveland -7 everywhere.

        This is another play against Houston. Pretty sure they have checked out for the season. Washington won big at Houston, Miami was up 30-0 at halftime, and Cleveland should follow suit as they still have an outside chance of making the playoffs (slim, but none the less a chance). Cleveland will run the ball, control the clock, and keep Houston in check.

          This will be the best game Houston plays all season. If not, they need to fold as a franchise.

          Just like Ohio State needs to do after losing to Michigan! LMEAO!

          What's the crap about not wanting to play in the Rose Bowl?

          Rick, playing in the Rose Bowl is like playing in the Dukes Mayo Bowl to us Buckeyes... The Rose Bowl is so boring these days😉😂

        NFL POW 7-5

        Pittsburgh (PK) Circa and everywhere

        Line is moving today after a good performance from Pickett last night. Atlanta D is a big step down from what the Steelers O has faced the past few weeks so expect a lot of success. And Mariota will still be Mariota against a good Steelers D. I’ll take the Steelers in a coin flip.


        • #6

          Colts +11 ... everywhere

          I think that Dallas laying 11 points is just too much. Indy can run the ball with one of the best running backs in the NFL. QB Ryan has to not turn the ball over for the Colts to stay in this game.


          • #7
            Indi's offence is clearly unproductive and as proven this
            season and even worse in the 1st half when playing away.
            The game line rests solely in the hands of the Cowboys.
            Dallas is good for 28+ and the limp Colts maybe 13.
            Should be taking the game under but will roll with the
            1st half under. Indi will keep it tight falsely believing
            they're in the game.
            Colts get "branded" this week.

            P.O.W - 9-2-1 = 9.5

            INDI-DALLAS UNDER 1st Half - 21.5 ( Circa )

              Again could have had another point if I didnt rush to post and get it out of the way. Bad sign

            2022 NFL P .O .W (9-3) Cowboys-6.5

            1st half(Circa)

            I definitely agree with the contest leader assessment of this game 1st half. The Cowboys are sacking the opposing QB on 11.51% of passing plays. That's an insane rate, and now they'll get to feast against the Colts and one of the most immobile quarterbacks in the game in Matt Ryan. I thought about the game spread but I never lay more than 10 points in the NFL.So I will lay less than a TD on the 1st half on my long shot pick to win the Super Bowl (I bet them at +1600) Cowboys.

              That little .5 pt always gives me nightmares.
              In golf a half a shot too often nails you #18!

              I'm going to buy that 1/2 point to 6 & taking Dak & Co in the 1H

              So i look at all of my pending parlays, RR's as had a very good day today.
              Majority if not all of them relying on a Dallas even 1st half & Under 22.5 and/or 21.5 total for the 1st half.
              Going to be sick if lose this one as it will be the contest too!

            NFL POW 5-7

            Under 43.5 Ne/Buff South Point

            Last time these 2 play was last year playoff, where JA went off with 7 TD and never punt the ball. Im sure the Hoodie have the whole team watch that game in the film room this week. I don’t think they will let that happen again. GL and happy December guy!


            • #10
              Dolphins +4 South Point
              TT rounding into form as one of the most underrated QB’s in the NFL. Niners D improving but I see a late field goal by either side, so 4 points seem very enticing.


              • #11
                POW 5-7
                da Raiduhs +2 Caesars
                Vegas temporarily came back to life last week now they catch the unpredictable Bolts back home. Looks like a high scoring affair that Raiders should come out on top of.

                  Great line value, as LV is now sitting at -2.5

                2022 NFL P.O.W. [8-4-0]

                NY Giants +2.5 (Circa) I'm going with the home dog in this matchup. The Giants haven't looked great as of late, but I think they pull off the upset and end the Commanders win streak. Washington did beat Philly, but I'm still not a believer.

                  NFL P.O.W. (4-8-0)

                  Pittsburgh - Pick 'em (South Poi

                  Pittsburgh seems to be on the right track with Watt coming back and rookie QB Pickett starting
                  to round into shape as a pro. Atlanta has played well, but against lesser opponents. Although this
                  game is in Atlanta, Pittsburgh should pull out a close one.
                  The man on the mountaintop didn’t fall there. . . . Vince Lombardi

                    NFL POW (7-5)

                    Bills/NE Over 43.5 (Wynn)

                    I think both teams defenses have been exposed a bit lately. I could see a special teams touchdown or an INT returned, think this game turns into 26 - 23 kind of affair. Liked the way Mac Jones threw the ball last week, that shouldn't have been a loss and their offense finally started clicking.


                    • #15
                      NFL POW 7-5 [7 pts]

                      Over 44 Green Bay vs Chicago [Southpoint]

                      Both Defenses are very very poor these days. Bears have played in 6 Overs in a row giving up 187 points in those 6 games. Big question marks on both QB's status in this one. If Rodgers and Fields play this number will go higher. If they don't it will go lower but regardless who plays I see tons of chunk plays in this game. Packers can't stop the run game. Bears can't stop any game....I see over 50 points in this game

                      GL to all
