October 29, 2017




Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the NFL games of Sunday, Oct. 29






STRONG PLAYS:  Pittsburgh -3 Detroit

                               Houston +6 1/2 Seattle






Carolina +1 1/2 Tampa Bay

New Orleans -9 Chicago

Washington +2 Dallas

New England -7 LA Chargers

Tampa Bay---Carolina OVER 46

Cincinnati---Indianapolis OVER 42

 Dallas---Washington OVER 48



NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: I'm going to be very careful with that "strong play" on Houston. We can't know how that locker room will react to the turmoil caused by the statements by the  club's owner this week which so angered many on the team. In addition, Seattle may be finding at least a small amount of rhythm offensively (small!!!). I'm going to pass this game because of variables we can't measure though I respect the handicapper where the pick came from.






Saturday record: 0-1....-$1.30

Playoffs so far: 10-13.....-$4.05


Houston +135 LA Dodgers






Saturday record: No plays.....Season so far: 8-11



Charlotte -3 1/2 Orlando



Good hunting today!

Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the college games of Saturday, Oct. 28



VERY STRONG PLAYS: Arizona +2 1/2 Washington State



STRONG PLAYS: San Diego State -9 1/2 Hawaii

                              N. C. State +7 Notre Dame






So. Carolina -7 Vanderbilt

West Virginia +7 1/2 Oklahoma State

Florida +13 1/2 Georgia

Colorado -4 Cal

Northwestern +2 1/2 Michigan State

W. Kentucky 6 1/2 Florida Atlantic

Clemson---Georgia Teck UNDER 48 1/2

Penn State---Ohio State UNDER 57 1/2

So. Florida---Houston OVER 56 1/2



NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: I have a pair of games for you today. Tennessee whips Kentucky all the time. They've won 31 of the last 32 played in this series. UK has come close at times but simply can't break through---until today. Tennessee is a pathetic, error prone team whose coach will be fired. Their season's gone. UK shows spirit and spunk at appears headed for a bowl. The torture ends today.


And Michigan got ripped last weekend by Penn State. The Wolverines appear a step down from previous seasons. But that result combined with some phony Rutgers results has brought today's line down.  I believe the UM defense simply stuffs Rutgers. So:



TAKE: Kentucky -3 1/2 Tennessee

           Michigan -23 Rutgers


Good hunting today!


October 27, 2017


Playoffs so far: 9-12.....-$3.80

NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: Another easy winner in this spot last night with Toledo. I have made both Tulane and SMU Picks of the Pole in Friday night action. Cheers.

October 26, 2017



Wednesday record: 1-0....+$1.05

Playoffs so far: 9-12....-$3.85


No game today


Wednesday record: 2-1.....Season so far: 7-10


Portland -3 LA Clippers




Here is a Late Consensus Pick for a solid handicapper on tonight's NFL game:


REGULAR PLAY: Miami +3 Baltimore


NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: We've been clicking along in this spot and have another game for you tonight. Toledo's a really solid mid=major team. Ball State's junk. Yes, three-and-a-half-touchdowns is a lot to lay on the road. But consider that Toledo's 11-4- ATS their last 16 road games and Ball State is 5-14 ATS their last 19 home games.  They've allowed 13 sacks their last two games and their backup QB Miles is basically awful. Smells like a blowout to me.


TAKE: Toledo -24 1/2 Ball State



October 25, 2017





Tuesday record: No selection

Playoffs so far: 8-12....-$4.90



Houston +105 LA Dodgers






Tuesday record: 0-2.....Season so far: 5-9



Minnesota -1 1/2 Detroit

OK City -14 1/2 Indiana

Dallas +4 Memphis
