SATURDAY RECORD: 1-1.....EVEN

Texas -145 Oakland

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


VERY STRONG PLAYS: None



STRONG PLAYS:  Houston +2 1/2 Tennessee

                               Cincinnati -3 Cleveland



REGULAR PLAYS:



LA Rams +6 1/2 Dallas (Disagrees with a Pick of the Pole)

LA Rams---Dallas UNDER 48 1/2

Carolina +9 New England

NY Giants +2 1/2 Tampa Bay

Denver -3 Oakland

Buffalo---Atlanta OVER 48 1/2



NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: The more I studyJacksonville versus the Jets the more I believe defenses will rule this day. The Jets aren't much of a team overall by head coach Todd Bowles is a terrific defensive mind and has that side of the ball playing well. Jacksonville's strong "D" should stop the Jets tepid offense. So:


TAKE: Jacksonville---Jets UNDER 39



Good hunting today.

FOOTBALL



Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the college games of Saturday, Sept. 30:



VERY STRONG PLAY:  Virginia Tech +7 Clemson



STRONG PLAY:  Cal +16 Oregon



REGULAR PLAYS:



So. Florida -21 E. Carolina

Troy +20 1.2 LSU

Louisiana Tech -11 1/2 So. Slabama

New Mexico State +17 Arkansas

Bowling Green +2 1/2 Akron

Miami Ohio +20 1/2 Notre Dame

Stanford -17 1/2 Arizona State

Fresno -9 Nevada

Oregon State +27 1/2 Washington

No. Illinois +10 San Diego State



NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: I believe Virginia Tech has a shot at taking down Clemson and made them a "Pick of the Pole." Then, a couple of respected handicappers each take Va. Tech and one

of them makes them avery strong play. Consider taking a light play on Va. Tech on the money line. If they should pull the upset your return for one dollar bet would be $2.20. That's a hefty profit and I think possible. Good hunting today.

FOOTBALL



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



VERY STRONG PLAYS----None



STRONG PLAYS: Seattle +2 1/2 Tennessee



REGULAR PLAYS;:



Detroit +3 Atlanta

New England -14 Houston

LA Chargers +3 Kansas City

Washington +3 Oakland

Cincinnati +71/2 Green Bay

Miami -6 NY Jets

Kansas City---LA Chargers UNDER 47 1/2



NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS:First, I'm more than a bit concerned about massive injuries impacting today's games. We're through two weeks and teams like Washington, Green Bay, Jacksonville and others are already badly banged up. This weekend leaves me pretty unexcited. But there is one college game today in Uconn facing E. Carolina. The Pirates program looks awful. This is not a strong play but I believe E. Carolina is simply a "go against" team at this point. So:


A LIGHT PLAY ON: Uconn minus the points vs. E. Carolina



BASEBALL



Saturday record: 1-0.....+$1.00

Season so far: 380-356.......+$0.05



Milwaukee +115 Cubs

Tampa Bay -1.05 Baltimore



FOOTBALL



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



VERY STRONG PLAYS; None



STRONG PLAYS: Cal +17 USC



REGULAR PLAYS: 


North Carolina +1 1/2 Duke

Purdue +10 1/2 Michigan

Vanderbilt +18 1/2 Alabama

FIRST HALF:  Vandy---Alabama UNDER 22

TCU +12 1/2 Oklahoma State

Michigan State +3 1/2 Notre Dame

Tulsa 101/2 New Mexico

Iowa +12 1/2 Penn State

BallState +11 1/2 W. Kentucky



NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: The last time Kentucky beat Florida Ronald Reagan was in the midst of his second term. No internet, no IPhones, no Snap Chat. THIRTY consecutive wins.

And Florida always covers (9 of the last 10). But such facts  are pretty easy to find. Yet the linemaker has installed FLA as just a 1 1/2 or 2 point favorite. This LOOKS too easy. I smell a rat here. Kentucky's much improved. Florida appears a couple of steps below the usual level of the program. So:


TAKE: Kentucky straight up on the money line (+120) to defeat Florida

There are no Late Consensus Picks games tonight:



NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: At the start of the season it was hard to picture the Rams favored on the road. But the LA offense (tied for second in the entire league in points scored) seems pretty far ahead of that of the Niners.  With star DT Aaron Donald making more and more impact now that his holdout is over we may have a Rams team better on both sides of the ball tonight. So:


TAKE: LA Rams -2 1/2 San Francisco
