NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: Minnesota got torched last week by a shaky Buffalo offense. Don't expect that to happen back-to-back to a Mike Zimmer defense. And there's solid historical info to support a low scoring game here also. So:


TAKE: LA Rams--Minnesota UNDER 49 1/2

BASEBALL

Wednesday's record: 2-2....-$0.15

Season so far: 338-330...-$16.70


Colorado -170 Philadelphia

Here are your Consensus Late Picks from various top handicappers on the NFL games of Sunday, Sept. 23


VERY STRONG PLAYS: None


STRONG PLAY: Washington +3 Green Bay

                           New England -7 Detroit


REGULAR PLAYS: Carolina -3 Cincinnati

                                New Orleans +2 Alanta

                                San Fran +6 1/2 Kansas City

                                LA Rams -7 LA Chargers

                                Seattle -1 1/2 Dallas


NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: Well, we're on a nice roll in "Late Thoughts." Had a nice week last week, hit the Penn State winner Friday and two winners Saturday on UMass and Texas. As you well know I disagree with that Consensus pick on Dallas. But that's been on record for a couple of days now.

Today lets go to a  total. There are a couple of heavy trend indicators that suggest a pretty fair number of points today in the Bears--Arizona game. Teams like 'Zona who've opened with two straight games scoring less than 14 points go OVER in week three at a 16-clip in recent seasons. Lets go with that angel. So:


TAKE: Chicago--Arizona OVER 38 1/2



BASEBALL


Saturday record: 3-2....+$0.45

Season so far: 333-326.....-$18.55



Colorado +105 Arizona



Good hunting today!

BASEBALL

Friday record: 2-2.....EVEN

Season so far: 330-324.....-$19.00

Miami EVEN Cincinnati

Atlanta -150 Philadelphia

St. Louis -170 San Francisco

Tampa Bay -150 Toronto

Texas -105 Seattle


FOOTBALL



Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the college games of Saturday, Sept. 22:



VERY STRONG PLAYS---None



STRONG: Purdue +7 Boston College

                 Navy -6 1/2 SMU


REGULAR PLAYS:


Missouri +14 1/2 Georgia

Wake Forest +6 1/2 Notre Dame

Nebraska +18 Michigan

Liberty +13 North Texas

Rice +14 So. Miss

Virginia -5 1/2 Louisville



NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: I have a pair of NLT's for you this morning.


1. I like what appears to be growth going on in Austin. The home dog Longhorns offer some value today. Plus, there are  a handful of long term negative trend toward TCU in this situation and that's unusual for a terrific coach like coach Patterson


2. UMass is a veteran team off to a struggling start. But weakling Charlotte may be just what the doctor ordered here. Give me the Minutemen to play away as this one goes along.


TAKE: Texas +3 TCU

            UMass -7 1/2 Charlotte.


Good hunting today!

NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: We had a nice winner with revenge minded Temple last night and have a couple more thoughts about tonight's action.

The Illinois program seems to be a total mess while Penn State seems to get some offensive things figured out last week during their waltz against Kent State. This looks like a mis-match and James Franklin's Nittany Lions have been solid at home. Illinois passing game seemingly doesn't give them much chance to trade points with PSU.

So:


TAKE: Penn State minus that bushel of points versus Illinois.


Also, USC's back home against Washington State. Last week the Trojans went down in flames against Texas and are now 10-22 ATS their last 32 away from home. But they're a much tougher nut to crack at home.


LEAN ONLY: To USC


BASEBALL



Friday record: 2-1.....+$3.20

Season so far: 238-232....-$19.00


Mets -135 Washington

Pittsburgh +130 Milwaukee

Atlanta -135 Philadelphia

LA Angels +210 Houston
