FOOTBALL

 

 

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

 

 

REGULAR PLAYS

 

 

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

USC--UCLA OVER 71

 

 

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.

 

 

BASKETBALL

 

 

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

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

 

 

NBA

 

 

Cleveland -6 1/2 LC Clippers

Oklahoma City PICK San Antonio

 

 

COLLEGE

 

 

No selections tonight

 

 

FOOTBALL

 

 

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

FOOTBALL

 

 

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. 

 

 

BASKETBALL

 

 

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

 

 

NBA

 

 

No selections tonight

 

 

COLLEGE

 

 

Auburn -7 1/2 Indiana State

Oklahoma State -20 Oral Roberts

 

 

Good hunting today!!!

FOOTBALL

 

 

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.

 

 

BASKETBALL

 

 

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

 

 

COLLEGE

 

 

Seton Hall -13 Indiana

Oklahoma -14 1/2 Ball State

Minnesota -20 Niagara

 

 

NBA

 

 

Cleveland -1 1/2 Charlotte

Memphis -4 1/2 Indiana

Minnesota -4 1/2 San Antonio

Philadelphia -3 1/2 LA Lakers

 

 

Cheers!

BASKETBALL

 

 

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

 

 

COLLEGE

 

San Diego State PICK Arizona State

Kansas -4 1/2 Kentucky

New Mexico -9 1/2 Nebraska Omaha

 

 

FOOTBALL

 

 

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 12, 2017

FOOTBALL

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

VERY STRONG PLAYS:None

STRONG PLAYS: Tennessee -5 Cincinnati

                              Buffalo +2 New Orleans

REGULAR PLAYS:

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
