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






STRONG PLAYS:  New England -6 1/2 Oakland

                               Green Bay +2 Baltimore






Minnesota -2 1/2 LA Rams

Arizona +2 1/2 Houston

Tampa Bay PICK Miami

Denver -2 1/2 Cincinnati

Dallas +6 Philadelphia



NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: This shrunken card is very picked over and contains a few games I don't care about at all. After a very solid week in "Late Thoughts" lets just go with what we've chosen in the Picks of the Pole and nothing new interests me at all.






Saturday record: 5-1......Season so far: 39-31






Denver -4 1/2 LA Lakers






No selections today



Good hunting today

November 18 2017





Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the games of Saturday, Nov. 18.



VERY STRONG PLAYS: Texas A&M -1 1/2 Mississippi



STRONG PLAYS: Temple +13 1/2 UCF






Northwestern -7 Minnesota

Texas +3 West Virginia

Air Force +17 1/2 Boise

Virginia +19 1/2 Miami Fla.

U La Monroe +37 1/2 Auburn

Fla. Atlantic -14 1/2 Fla. International




NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: Our very, very nice run continued last night with another winner by Western Kentucky. Today we have a pair of plays for you that each, as the week has rolled on, appear to be games where the favorite may handle the underdog.


TAKE: Penn State -25 1/2 Nebraska....The Huskers season has disintegrated, their defense is very poor and their coach is about to get canned. Penn State the far better team and should dismantle this discouraged loser.


TAKE: Memphis -12 1/2 SMU......The Ponies have had a good season but their defense yields tons and tons of points through the air and this is the best QB they've faced this season. Memphis has higher aspirations as they attempt to finish with just one defeat and cling to the possibility of a very nice bowl bid. Memphis has slaughtered SMU each of the last three years. That might well happen again.






Friday record:0-2.....Season so far: 34-30






Philadelphia +8 1/2 Golden State







Nevada -12 Pacific

Vermont -9 1/2 Coastal Carolina

Belmont -17 1/2 Houston Baptist

Canisius -7 1/2 Youngstown State



Good hunting today! 


November 17, 2017




THURSDAY RECORD: 2-0.....Season so far: 34-28






Cleveland -6 1/2 LC Clippers

Oklahoma City PICK San Antonio






No selections tonight






NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: The Late Consensus Picks had a nice winner tonight while we split our two college plays. Tonight Middle Tennessee State is a road favorite at Western Kentucky. That's a role MTSU hasn't been very good at of late (1-5-1) while WKU is a solid 19-3 SU at home with two of the losses by just one point. This is simply a tech play but there seems to be merit in it.



TAKE: Western Kentucky +3 Middle Tennessee



Good hunting tonight


November 16 2017




Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the games of Thursday, Nov. 16.



REGULAR STRENGTH PLAY: Pittsburgh -7 Tennessee



NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: A nice start to the week with a winner Tuesday and our "lean" hit last night. Tonight I like both college games:


TAKE: Buffalo -20 Ball State....BSU is simply a "go against" team at this point. Their season can't 

                                                 end quickly enough for them.


TAKE: Tulsa +22 So. Florida....Golden Hurricane have the ability to score and RB Brewer alone 

                                                  keep them close enough. SFU not destroying people as they did

                                                  earlier this season. 






Wednesday record: 6-1....Season so far: 32-28






No selections tonight






Auburn -7 1/2 Indiana State

Oklahoma State -20 Oral Roberts



Good hunting today!!!


November 15, 2017




There are no Late Consensus Picks on tonight's MAC games.



NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: After (barely) hitting a winner in this spot last night all I have for you today is a "lean." W. Michigan's one of college football's best "travelers." WM's a solid 12-3 ATS the last 15 times they've hit the road. No. Illinois is a solid team but the points here appear worth taking a small chance on in a game that could be a fight to the very finish.






Tuesday record: 1-2......Season so far: 26-27






Seton Hall -13 Indiana

Oklahoma -14 1/2 Ball State

Minnesota -20 Niagara






Cleveland -1 1/2 Charlotte

Memphis -4 1/2 Indiana

Minnesota -4 1/2 San Antonio

Philadelphia -3 1/2 LA Lakers




November 14, 2017




Monday record: 0-3....Season so far: 25-25





San Diego State PICK Arizona State

Kansas -4 1/2 Kentucky

New Mexico -9 1/2 Nebraska Omaha






There are no Late Consensus Pick on tonight's MAC games but I do have a Late Thoughts opinion:



Kent State's a very poor football team...They've lost their last three games by margins of 45, 28 and 28. Central Mich has now covered 4 of their last 5 while Kent is 3-9 their last 12. Both teams are headed for bowls---Central to a bowl game and Kent State to a toilet bowl.  Only one way to go here:


Take Central Michigan -17 1/2 Kent State

November 13, 2017





There are no Late Consensus Picks on tonight's NFL game.






Sunday record:1-1....Season so far: 25-22






Cleveland -4 1/2 NY Knicks

New Orleans -9 Atlanta

Golden State -14 1/2 Orlando


November 12, 2017


Here are your Late Consensus Picks  for theNFL games of Sunday, Nov. 12:


STRONG PLAYS: Tennessee -5 Cincinnati

                              Buffalo +2 New Orleans


LA Chargers +5 1/2 Jacksonville

Pittsburgh---Indianapolis UNDER 45

Detroit---Cleveland UNDER 43 1/2

Dallas +3 1/2 Atlanta



NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: Several games leave me very cold on this week's schedule and the others have been picked already. Lots of action on the Chargers but I'll stay with my Jacksonville selection there. Jets have been playing inspired ball. Tampa's been a bum thus far. I'd lean in the Jets direction but that's about all I have to offer this morning.






Saturday record: 3-2.....Season so far: 24-21






Toronto -2 Boston

Detroit -3 1/2 Miami



Good hunting today!
