    FOOTBALL


    Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the NFL playoff games of Sunday, Jan, 19.


    VERY STRONG PLAY: Tennessee +7 Kansas City


    STRONG PLAY: San Francisco---Green Bay OVER 46

                               Green Bay +7 San Francisco


    REGULAR PLAYS: None


    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: A final reminder about your  confidence level in wagering. If you truly believe Tennessee has a chance to upend KC (which I do) you are being offered +275 return on a one dollar wager on the Titans straight up.

    FOOTBALL


    In the national title game of college football tonight my sources agree that the value lies with Clemson and have made the Tigers a STRONG PLAY. If you'd care to step farther out on  that limb you can get right at 2-1 on Clemmie to win straight out. Hmmmmmm. Interesting!

    January 12, 2020

    FOOTBALL


    There is one Late Consensus Pick on a playoff game today. It's rated a STRONG PLAY:


    Take Seattle +4 Green Bay


    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: I'm not nearly as enamored with Seattle as the Consensus Pick is. This looks like a dog fight and that GB defense has been terrific. Don't know if Seattle has the weapons to attack it with any regularity. Be careful a bit.


    BASKETBALL

    VERY STRONG PLAYS: None



    STRONG PLAYS: Buffalo--Houston UNDER 43 1/2


     

    REGULAR PLAYS: Buffalo +2 1/2 Houston



    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: History makes a huge case for the Patriots against Tennessee today. But in simply current form the Titans stand solid chance against NE today. The oddsmaker is offering an attractive +175 for taking TENN straight up. Lets take a bit of that:


    TAKE: Tennessee +175 New England on the money line


    BASKETBALL


    Friday record: 4-1

    Very Strong

    Oregon +3 vs Wisconsin


    Strong Plays

    None


    Regular Plays

    Baylor +5 vs Georgia


    Norm’s Late Thoughts


    I have weighed in on virtually every one of these games through The Picks of the Pole.   But again, if you like underdogs like Oregon or Baylor, the money line might be an attractive alternative for you

    There is one Late Consensus Pick on the college bowl game today. It is rated as a REGULAR STRENGTH play.


    TAKE: Marshall +15 UCF

    FOOTBALL


    Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the NFL games of Sunday, Dec. 22.


    VERY STRONG PLAYS: Tennessee +3 New Orleans


    STRONG PLAYS: Atlanta -7 Jacksonville


    REGULAR PLAYS:


    Cincinnati -1 1/2 Miami

    Arizona +9 Seattle

     Chicago +6 1/2 Kansas City

    Washington +1 NY Giants

    Pittsburgh--NY Jets UNDER 37


    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: The more I studied the Baltimore--Cleveland game the more it seems to me that the Browns are a total mess. Several players seem to want out. QB Mayfield is a mess. We know they'll get out-coached. Baltimore meanwhile seems laser focused. While the Ravens may not need this one technically, the Browns seem to "need" the season to be over.


    TAKE: Baltimore-10 Cleveland

    Saturday record: 12-4

    Here are your Late Consensus Picks on the college and NFL games of Saturday, Dec. 21


    VERY STRONG PLAYS: None


    STRONG PLAYS: App. State -16 1.2 UAB


    REGULAR PLAYS:


    SMU--Florida Atlantic UNDER 64 1/2

    Buffalo +6 1/2 New England

    Buffalo--New England U NDER 37


    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: The SMU spread has leaped to the Ponies now being an 8-point favorite (were favored by 3) because of multiple key suspensions to skill position players  on FAU. Game like this, in my memory, are undependable to play on so I'll be skipping this one entirely (including the total).

    New England--Cincinnati UNDER 41 1/2

    Arizona +3 Cleveland

    LA Rams -1 1/2 Dallas

    Buffalo +1 Pittsburgh


    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: With beats up Detroit seeming to surrender more and more easily Tampa Bay seems more and more attractive. One hates to lay points with a side as uneven as the Bucs but QB Winston figures to make several more big plays than the Lions Blough and TB's been playing a lots. better as the season rolls into the stretch run.

    VERY STRONG PLAYS: None


    STRONG PLAYS: Atlanta--Carolina UNDER 47


    REGULAR PLAYS:


    Buffalo +6 Baltimore

    NY Jets--Miami OVER 46

    LA Rams PICK Seattle

    New England -3 Kansas City


    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS---After a nervous cover with Baylor in this spot yesterday lets look at a team getting healthy versus a team in turmoil. Atlanta gets Julio Jones back today (amongst others) in facing a Carolina team who fired long, long time coach Ron Rivera this week. ATL seems to have a huge advantage at QB with Ryan over Allen. 


    TAKE: Atlanta -3 1/2  Carolina


    BASKETBALL


    Saturday record: 7-5

    Season so far: 84-100


    NBA


    Denver -3 Brooklyn

    Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the college games on Saturday, Dec. 7


    VERY STRONG PLAYS: None


    STRONG PLAYS: Georgia +7 LSU

                                  Clemson -28 1/2 Virginia


    REGULAR PLAYS:


    UAB +8 Florida Atlantic

    Cincinnati +10 Memphis

    Ohio State -15 Wisconsin


    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: Yesterday on the radio I professed a "lean" to Baylor here. But after considering the game more I'll now go with a full play on the Bears. Head coach Matt Rhule's been spectacular as an underdog covering 10 of his last 12. He's had weeks to consider what happened when losing by three points to OU earlier. His Bears appear to be made of "strong stuff" and I'll take them plus the generous spread.


    TAKE: Baylor +9 Oklahoma

    Friday record: 2-5

    There is one Late Consensus Picks on tonight's NFL game. It's rated as a REGULAR STRENGTH play.


    TAKE: Chicago +3 Dallas


    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: I've seesawed on this game. I'd lean to CHI also give that I believe this game should be rated closer to "pick em" and that makes the value for this contest in taking the three point spot. Here is another situation though in which, if you like CHI, you might consider them on the m one line to win the game straight out.

    Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the NFL games of Sunday, Dec. 1.


    VERY STRONG PLAYS: None


    STRONG PLAYS: San Francisco +5 1/2 Baltimore

                                  LA Chargers--Denver Broncos UNDER 38


    REGULAR PLAYS: 


    Cincinnati +3 NY Jets

    Arizona +3 LA Rams

    Pittsburgh -2 Cleveland

    New England -3 Houston

    Tennessee--Indianapolis OVER 42


    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: I don't like this picked over card very much  and, as you can tell, disagree with three of the above REGULAR plays. (I like NY Jets, Cleveland and Houston). So, my only recommendation is to again remind you of the value of playing the "money line." My favorite money line play today would be Houston.

    FOOTBALL


    There are no Late Consensus Picks on the Thanksgiving day games but I do have a solid opinion. Mississippi have shown far more focus as the season has worn on. They've covered six of their last seven while Miss State is 1-5 ATS their last six SEC games. Your choice is to either take Mississippi plus the small small or take them +115 on the money line. I'll do a bit of both.


    TAKE: Mississippi +2 1/2 Mississippi State


    Also, in the Picks of the Pole I took the Dallas--Buffalo game UNDER the 46 1/2 points.

    Hofstra -1 1/2 San Diego



    November 26, 2019

    FOOTBALL


    There are no Late Consensus Picks on tonight's game but I do have an opinion for you. Akron is pathetic and faces an Ohio tam that needs a win to become bowl eligible. Just last week we touted you on Ohio versus a similarly awful team in Bowling Green and Ohio smoked them. Just don't see a scenario where Akron musters up the juice to compete for long.


    TAKE: Ohio -27 1/2 Akron


    BASKETBALL


    Monday record: 2-2

    Season so far: 56-62


    NBA


    Denver -9 1/2 Washington


    COLLEGE


    Cal -12 UC Davis

    Wright State whatever the line vs. Lasalle

    Loyola Chicago whatever the line vs. Colorado State

    No. Colorado PICK Boston U.

    Michigan State -14 Georgia

    Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the NFL games of Sunday, Nov. 24


    VERY STRONG PLAYS: None


    STRONG PLAYS: Atlanta--Tampa Bay UNDER 52

                                  Philadelphia--Seattle UNDER 47


    REGULAR PLAYS: 


    Detroit--Washington UNDER 40

    Pittsburgh--Cincinnati UNDER 37

    Tampa Bay +3 1/2 Atlanta 

    Jacksonville---Tennessee OVER 41 1/2

    Cleveland--Miami UNDER 45 1/2

    Dallas--New England UNDER 44 1/2


    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: In the Giants-Bears clash we see and underdog (NYG) seeming to play with more passion and commitment  than the favorite. Chicago generates very, very little offense and the Giants seems to be getting healthier on their offensive side of the ball. Lets go with the dog.


    TAKE: NY Giants +6 Chicago


    BASKETBALL


    Saturday record: 3-5

    Season so far: 50-59


    NBA


    DOUBLE PLAY: Denver -9 Phoenix


    COLLEGE


    Washington -14 1/2 San Diego

    Nichols State +1 1/2 UMBC

    Virginia -9 1/2 Arizona State


    Happy Sunday!


    November 23, 2019

    FOOTBALL


    Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the college games of Saturday, Nov. 23


    VERY STRONG PLAYS: None


    STRONG PLAYS: Texas +5 1/2 Baylor


    REGULAR PLAYS:


    Northwestern +13 1/2 Minnesota

    SMU +3 1/2 Navy

    SMU--Navy UNDER 67

    LSU -43 1/2 Arkansas

    TCU +18 Oklahoma

    Nebraska--Maryland UNDER 63

    Troy +13 1/2 U La La

    Duke--Wake Forest UNDER 49 1/2


    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: The more I studied the Iowa State--Kansas matchup the more I believe this is a destruction. After offering some nice opposition for  some mid-season games Kansas seems to be backsliding. That's understandable given the thinness of their depth. Iowa State has emerged from a rugged schedule and appears ready to cook on behind QN Purdy, one of the most efficient QB's in the country. Blowout!


    TAKE: Iowa State -24 1/2 Kansas


    BASKETBALL


    Friday record: 2-7 (UGH)

    Season so far: 47-54

    Minnesota -6 Phoenix

    There is one Late Consensus Pick on a college football game tonight. It's rated as a STRONG play.

    FOOTBALL


    There are no Late Consensus Picks on this game but I do have an opinion. Ohio still harbors some chance of  sneaking into a bowl game with a possible 6-6 record. And all they have left on their schedule is sinking Bowling Green and pathetic Akron. So, the bowl push begins in earnest tonight. I smell roast Falcon!


    TAKE: Ohio -20 Bowling Green


    BASKETBALL


    Monday record: 0-2

    Season so far: 35-41


    NBA
