  • 2019 nfl p.o.w. Week #5 (oct 3-7) post plays 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:
    6. All lines must be -110 or less (must be posted on above 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) 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!

      POW 3-1
      Bengals -4 1/2 Willie Hill
      One team heading south to a no win season, while the other still has a little fight. Cardinals first year coach has no idea how to turn this disastrous team around.

        NFL POW 2-2 [2 pts.]

        Tennessee -2.5 [William Hill]

        In what figures to be a fairly low scoring game I'll take the home team here who figures to turn Buffalo over 2-3 times as Allen [if healthy] showed that under pressure he will make some pretty poor decisions.
        Mariotta has been inconsistent but gotta ride the fact that he will work the short passing game and running Henry enough that 20 points will win this game and I don't see Buffalo getting to that number. I'll take the Titans who must feel like the AFC South is there for the taking and coming off a road win in Atlanta will put together a solid effort here to get a 7-10 point win.

        GL to all

          NFL POW 4-0-0
          -14½ - Bet MGM Patriots
          The original line was 13 and it keeps going up. Don't have a handle on many of the games
          so the best against one of the worse is a good angle. This will probably be the game that gets
          Gruden fired. The rookie that came in threw 3 picks and now he faces the leauges #1 defense.
          I think it is going to get ugly in a hurry

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

            Baltimore -3.5 (Westgate)

            Line seems a bit short but probably due to the loss to the Browns. (Here we go Brownies, here we go Woof, Woof!) This is another system play which worked for me last week so why not...Play on Away teams in Division game coming off home game vs team coming off MNF. Line was +3 before the season but it won't matter with Ben out and Baltimore coming off a loss to a division rival to boot. Baltimore comes out mad and hungry for a win.

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

              New England/Wash under 44 (MGM Mirage)

              First off, congrats to all of you that have gone 4-0! Gonna get back to totals,, I figure that if Washington can only score 3 points against the Giants D, how many can they score against the Pats? While the line continues to go up, the total continues to go down. The total has actually gone down more than the line, and the game could get to 42 by Sunday. I will look for a little value, and take the under. Washington is approaching dumpster fire status, and I think the Pats offense will lose interest by the start of the 4th quarter, so my main fear is the Patriots scoring 45 in the first three quarters. Good luck to all,,

                NFL POW 3-1-0
                vikings -4.5 (MGM)

                Playing the road favorite in this spot.
                vikes the superior team and mad as hell facing a rookie QB
                IMO this is a welcome to the NFL MR.Jones beat down and I'm a giant fan to boot,

                  POW 4-0

                  SEATTLE -1.5 (WESTGATE)

                  Props to Tarb for jumping on this right away before line flip flopped. Rams got lit up badly and now have to turn around on short week and travel to a tough spot for a division game. Feel like Hawks will get after Goff, who is not playing his best right now. Wilson makes enough plays to get it done.


                  • #10
                    Rams +1 1/2 MGM
                    Rams should return to form after a disastrous outing against the Bucs. Draw a line through the Seabirds win against Arizona last week as the Cards have beaten no one.


                    • #11
                      Updated standings are now listed at the top of this page. Good luck in week 5!

                        NFL POW 4-0-0

                        Packers + 3.5 (WillHill, CG)

                        Taking this now before the hook disappears.

                        In order, Cowboys have played the Eli-led Giants, Washington, Miami, and the Brees-less hunt and peck Saints. Their record and numbers should be viewed in this context this early in the season. GB is probably a slightly above average team coming in with 3 extra days to prepare after a tough loss to the Eagles. I’m pretty sure Pack can score points here. Not as sure Cowboys can match them.

                          POW 3-1
                          SEAT - 1 Westgate
                          Goff had 3 interceptions last week and Gurley ran for under 50 yds also a short week to be on the road. I just think the Rams are out of sync at this time.

                            NFL POW 3-1-0 YTD

                            Seahawks -1 (Westgate)

                            It makes me nervous to go against the Rams after such an embarrassing loss, especially when I'm taking a team coming off a big win - but the Seahawks are outstanding both straight up and ATS in prime time games under Pete Carroll. It honestly just comes down to that for me. I absolutely don't think the Rams were as bad as they looked and even worry a bit that they were looking forward towards this game - but the Seahawks played them close even when they were clearly the much better team. I just wish I had thrown the Seahawks into a 6 point teaser when they opened at +1.5.

                              POW 3-1
                              NY Giants +5.5 (MGM)
                              QB Daniel Jones of the Giants has given the Giants new life. Really don't t rust Kirk Cousins for Minnesota. Giants should be able to keep it close. Jacksonville is a Gold Sheet key release. Tuley the Tout likes the Giants and you know how sharp that Tuley is !!!
