  • 2019 NFL P.O.W. Contest Week #2 (Sept 12-16) Post Selections Here

    This is the thread for the 2019 VFV NFL P.O.W. contest. The following are the rules for this year (the same as in the past):

    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: http://www.vegasinsider.com/nfl/odds/las-vegas/
    6. All lines must be -110 or less (must be posted on above site...no buying 1/2 point)
    7. Only Vegas Sports Books listed on the VI website will be allowed
    8. The following Books will NOT be allowed: VI Consensus, BetOnline, PepperMill, Atlantis Reno
    9. The following selections are allowed: Full Game Side, Full Game Total, First Half Side, First Half Total (NO MONEYLINES ALLOWED)
    10. Plays MUST be submitted each week by kickoff of last scheduled game.
    11. 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.")

    12. 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)
    13. The first couple of weeks I will give the benefit of the doubt to any newcomers on here...veterans, you know the rules, LMEAO
    14. 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
    15. For the first time, this year, Week 17 will be worth 2 points for a correct selection and 1 point for a push.
    16. 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 17)...important note: your points will be the number of Units you start with in the playoff portion of the contest that runs through the Super Bowl and will be run by DaveTuley with locked-in spreads and totals, though Tuley often will give extra options if the market has variances such as Patriots -6.5 but also Steelers +7 being available); still debating maximum units allowed for playoff round (currently 5-unit max bet each playoff weekend).
    17. ViewFromVegas shirt to top point-earner in regular season; $100 gift card & VFV shirt to overall playoff champion (we've had VFV Forum members offer up additional prizes in the past including cash and steak knives, so please contact DaveTuley if you have anything to add).

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask and best of luck this season!

      ARIZONA +13.5 ..... Westgate, William Hill

      Arizona came alive in the fourth quarter yesterday to tie the game. Maybe the team can play better the whole game next week. Yesterday there were two games with totals in the mid forties and double digit favorites. Well, both dogs covered and Cincinnati almost upset a very good Seattle team. This week, Arizona is a 13.5 point dog with a total in the mid forties. That is a lot of points to lay in a relatively low scoring game. Sure Baltimore lit up the scoreboard yesterday, but that was against the paththetic Dolphins.

        0-1 0 pts.

        OVER 44.5 Dallas/Washington [William Hill]

        I'm going for some value here as I see this line climbing to 46 or so as the week goes on. Keenum went on the road and threw for 380 yds at Philly and Prescott had a perfect QB rating at home yesterday. Another week of work for Elliott can only help exploit a Redskin Defense that got torched by Wentz and the Eagles. I'll ride that both QB's will build off their good days in week 1. This one gets in the 50's.

        GL to all

          Philadelphia had a much easier time scoring because two of Washington's defensive linemen were knocked out by injuries during the game.

        Fading Cards for the second week in a row. I don’t know how many points the Ravens will score this week, but I really don’t see the Cards putting up more than 10 points against this brutal Ravens defense. Holding my nose and crossing my fingers.

          DALLAS -4.5 MGM
          Was anyone else as impressed by Prescott's play on Sunday as much as I was. Total control and domination. The OH line gave him time and space. His receivers are quick and viscious. And on top of that they can run run run to control the clock. I dont think the Giants are that bad either. I see Dallas continuing to roll as well in week 2. I see this line climbing to the 6,5-7 by Sunday.

            NFL P.O.W. (0-1)
            JAGS +9.5 (PLAYMGM)

            The preseason line was 3.5 on this and Foles isnt worth 6 points. It's also a system play to take away team dog when their next game is Thursday and their opponent came off MNF game.

              NFL P.O.W. (1-0)
              Vikings +3 (William Hill))

              Like the Vikings new look on offense with new OC and focus on running game, plus revamped defense that dominated the Falcons. Packers looked good on D against Chicago, but that offense and QB for the Bears stinks, so not sure how good their D actually is and was not impressed with the play calling and rust for Rodgers - they went 2/12 on 3rd downs for the game. Vikings won 3 of last 4 ATS v Packers, I like this running road dog with Cook to get the outright win.

                Going to ride the TNF home favourite angle again. it wins 61.2% ( see TNF thread ) and with 14weeks left that gives me 8.5 wins . So need 1,5 wins in last 2 weeks to get to 10

                  I wouldn't doubt if this line goes to -21. From observation you have the best
                  team in the leauge against the worse. A division rivalry and even if they take Brady out
                  after 2 quarters NE back ups will still have a field day. I don't think they do it on purpose
                  but it should be a route

                    With all the excitement about Wentz being back, most folks have forgotten how good Matty Ice is in the Falcon Dome. Julio happy with his much deserved new contract and all the playmakers still in place on offense. In the battle of the birds, look for the dirty birds to jump out to a big lead and then hold on for dear life.

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

                          ARIZ PLUS 13 1/2 ALL OVER

                          Baltimore blow out previous week comes home feeling great—Arizona wakes up 4th quarter and ties game with Detroit.



                          Baltimore has K.C next week—should win this one without breaking a sweat, but I think the 13 ½ is too high considering this game is one they very well may be looking past. I’ll take the points and figure the Ravens do just enough to win by 10 or so.
