    NFL POW 5-2
    Rams -12.5 (CIRCA)

    A bit slow on this one as I see TARB smartly grabbed it early for a much better line, but Rams by two touchdowns should be doable - this line headed for 13.5 or 14 by Sunday. Bengals O-Line is so bad, and the old saying about bad O-Lines don't travel well. Dalton has regressed badly (not all his fault with this line and no AJ G), and I think team will look completely different next year with all the free agency, i think these guys might just lay down once AJ Green gets traded .....DT Aaron Donald should have a field day, Ramsey has respect of the entire team, and now Gurley back and perhaps healthiest he has been all year. If you want your QB to look good, play the Bengals. Goff orders a Beefeaters & Tonic, Ramsey has tea & biscuits w/the queen, and the Bengals get beheaded in London, 37 to 10.

        VI has not updated William Hill; WH took it off the board on Sunday night. I tried to bet Seattle -3.5 0n Monday morning at WH with my phone app, but the game was no longer listed. It is still not listed

        Cotton can settle it...VI is what we go by and whatever is listed there is what someone can choose from per the rules. SEA was listed still, updated or not so IMHO they can be used at the number posted. We don't go by numbers off an app, just off the website.

        Senator L.....TARB.......Rick.......As I look at the VI screen, at 8:24pm EDT on Wednesday night, both MGM and William Hill are still showing the Seahawks at -3.5. TARB, if the line was removed from your app, I can't see that. The rules clearly state that we use the VI Vegas books, with the exception of a couple that are listed. The line is clearly still up and available on this site, so until it changes, any selections made on SEA/ATL using these books will be allowed. Final decision.

      NFL POW 3-4
      Pats-12.5

      I usually hate laying double digits in the NFL but after watching the Pats own the Jets last night, this team is really good. I think there is a lot of motivation for the Pats this week especially because of all the talk that the Browns were going to be something special this year with all the talent. Not many more points I can make than what was posted above. Better team, better coach, going for SB #7.

        3-4
        Patriots -13 Westgate
        Never like a spread this large, but I feel the Pats being at home should have the motivation to cover this large number. Browns in disarray.

          5-2

          NO -9.5 MGM

          These are two teams going in completely different directions. The Saints have been with out its captain since the Dallas game and all they have done is win. Their defense, yea i said it, defense is winning games. The saints get the lowly cardinals in the superdome! This is like trying to steal meat out of a lions den....you dont want to go in there! With the defense firing and home noise i expect the cardinals to hand the ball over several times and find them selves in 3 and long all day. Bridgewater is playing like this is his team and that he deserves to take over the dynasty when brees retires (i think it happens if they win the SB this year). Kamara is a question mark but Murray and Bridgewater combo is a running threat that will feast on the weak AZ team. If Kamara is able to go at 85 percent or better this game is going to be really out of hand. I think the Saints know they are short manned and have a bye coming so they are focused! They will easily win this game and go into the bye to heal and hopefully have Brees back at the helm! Saints 34-10.

            NFL POW 3-4 [3pts]

            Bears -4 [CGT]

            Going against the public here as line opened at -5.5 and now down to 4 because the most of the tv viewers saw how bad the Bears looked the last 2 weeks. Both teams are trending the same way....downward. Chargers O-Line is weak and that is a weakness that the Bears will feast on. Chargers heading east for the second week in a row in a early start. Bears are circling the wagons this week and will simplify the game plan to let them score enough points to cover this relatively short #. Bears by 7-10.

            GL to all

              NFL POW Week 8 (5-1-1 YTD)

              Seattle -3.5 (Will Hill)

              I think everyone is jumping on this line while it is available. While it makes me a bit nervous - most books don't have it up and that is because an already depleted and quitting Falcons team is either going to start Matt Schaub or an injured Matt Ryan. This line makes no sense to me considering that Seattle was -6.5 at Arizona and we saw first hand that Arizona and Atlanta are equivalent at best (not just from there head to head but from everything since that time). This may be a sucker bet somehow but I just can't imagine this line closes shy of Seattle -6.

                1-5 and a miss
                10 weeks left need to win 9
                MINN -16 westgate
                Not getting best of the line as it opened -14 but not for long..see 16.5 out there. books looking for Wash action?
                im going with the TNF home favourite angle Wk8 on its been 50 -25 A TS and 10-1 with huge favourites of 10 points or more.
                Dont think MINNY will overlook WASH as they remember losing outright to Buffalo last year with a similar line.

                  Been some discussion about the SEA/ATL line that is currently available. In post 17 on Page 2, I have made my final ruling. The rules are the rules for a reason......we as a Forum have no control over what another website is showing.

                    NEW England UNDER 46 1/2 ( Mirage)

                    I know NE is rested after bye week against Jets--but I think Clev may slow the train a smidge.
                    Also Rain expected Sunday in Boston--trying the under----

                      I just want to state for the record that I'm fine with gcotton's ruling on the SEA-ATL line...personally, I think it's wrong LMEAO as the game's been off the board, but I agree with the rule under the parameters of this contest. It's inevitable when using an outside source like this with VI that there's going to times where stale/removed lines are left up either through computer glitches or human error and it's impossible to monitor every single instance and make exceptions (and expect contestants to stay on top of all that), so I agree to let the SEA -3.5 plays stand (no guarantee they win anyway as nothing to say Falcons can't win as home dogs or stay within 3 points -- and it's similar to situations that happens with the stale lines like in the SuperContest). In the grand scheme of things, most people that makes the playoffs will have made it anyway and most people that fall short will still fall short...maybe 1 and 2 people max will make playoffs because they snuck in an extra point this way but I can live with that.

                      GL everyone!

                        I agree with the decision. However, I suggest for next year's contest that betMGM and William Hill be put on the prohibited list. VI just cannot keep up to date on those books.

                        This starts my road back to the promised land Dave! That is, if the promised land is a gutter that I can lay down in and ponder the losing picks I've made so far this season! Others will be laying there with me. IFFF the Seachickens lose this one...They should move the team to London. They don't know any better over there!

                      Thanks Dave for your input and backing of me in this ruling....TARB, I will monitor their actions the rest of the season to see if your request to remove these books is warranted. Please keep me advised if you see anything else with these books the rest of the season. I trust your judgement on this important issue.

                        I concur beMGM and Will Hill should not be used next year. They are still showing Seattle at -3.5 on Sat at 1150 ET. Whether it is because Matt Ryan hasn’t been ruled out yet or what is beyond me but other books that do have the line up are at -6 to -7.

                      POW RECORD (3-3-0)
                      My pick this week is the Miami Dolphins+16.5. I have watched every play of the Steelers season this year being a Steelers fan. Pittsburgh coming off a bye and a huge win in San Diego. They will be going back to mason Rudolph which in my opinion is a mistake., unless they are going to let him play the position even still this offense has looked horrible. Miami May be winless but have been in every game and actually move the ball with Fitzpatrick at QB.
                      they were in the game against a loaded buffalo defense last week and the Steelers are not as good as buffalo on defense and have injuries at key positions. This line is just to high should be around 10-13 not -16.5. Good luck to all

                      NFL POW (4-3-0

                      Carolina +5.5 (MGM MIrage)

                      Hopefully this sportsbook is still OK. Carolina is a sneaky good team with a good defensive front and Allen playing well at QB. They are off of a bye week
                      and should be rested and healthy. SF is a really good defensive team as well that likes to run the ball. Sanders (new reciever) will probably sit out this week for SF.
                      Look for a low scoring game with the points a premium here. Panthers could win outright, but certainly should cover.

                        P.O.W. 4 - 3
                        LA Chargers +4 (Circa)

                        Chargers are killing me and owe me one from last week. I'll take the 4 pts against a Bears team that has pretty much lost its mojo. Game will probably come down to a field goal which makes me a winner either way. Rivers seems to be in this position every year with slow starts and then turns it on. This is the week.
