Geez, we're not going along very well now. 
BUT, I do like the underdog Red Sox tonight. Eovaldi's seemingly back in form and Keuchel doesn't look like the ace he was a couple years ago. Lets take the price on the underdog here.


Boston +120 Houston

There is one Late Consensus Pick on the Monday Night NFL game. It's a REGULAR strength play:


San Francisco +8 1/2 Green Bay


NORM's LATE THOUGHTS: I'm not in love with the above play on the Niners. Green Bay's wounded but still potent offensively.

At home and in need of a stellar performance to steady the ship I look for  Rodgers to have a truly fine game. But also, there are some very fine trends toward the OVER in this game. So, lets "lean" to Green Bay in the game and "lean: to the OVER also.

Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the NFL games of Sunday, Oct. 14



VERY STRONG PLAYS: Pittsburgh +2 Cincinnati



STRONG PLAYS: New England -3 1/2 Kansas City



REGULAR PLAYS:


Indianapolis +2 1/2 NY Jets

Seattle -2 1/2 Oakland

Pitt--Cincinnati OVER 50

Tennessee+2 1/2 Baltimore

Miami +4 Chicago



NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: Not much left on this card to handicap.

Given the shaky nature of each of the offenses involved I almost made Dallas--Jacksonville UNDER a Pick of the Pole.That's the way I'd still lean in this game though not enough to make it a full recommendation. For now, lets just call it a "LEAN." Good hunting today.

PLAYOFF BASEBALL



Playoff record so far: 4-8....-$4.95


Boston--Houston Over 7 1/2

Milwaukee +115 LA Dodgers


TAKE: Houston -135 Boston in the series



FOOTBALL



Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the college games of Saturday, Oct. 13.



VERY STRONG PLAYS: None



STRONG PLAYS: Wisconsin +10 Michigan

                              Colorado+7 USC


REGULAR PLAYS:


Michigan State +13 Penn State

Boise State -16 1/2 Nevada

Iowa State +6 1/2 W. Virginia

North Texas---So. Miss UNDER 54

Texas -14 Baylor

LSU +7 Georgia



NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: I have three games for you today.


Temple again got off to a slow start and has now found their stride just as they did last year. Navy appears a full cut beneath the level of recent Navy outfits.  So:

TAKE: Temple -7 Navy


Toledo's controlled E. Michigan for years now (11 wins in a row). The Rockets record is deceiving with their losses coming to very good teams from Miami Fla. and Fresno. EMU's improved but there's lots of bad history and trends here. So: 

TAKE: Toledo -2 1/2 E. Michigan


Oklahoma State's a full TD favorite at Kansas State. When Okie State simply folded versus Iowa State last week it seemed to validate the fact that these Cowboys are nothing but a mediocre team. Kansas state's also taken a step backward in their program. But coach Bill Snyder is a fantastic 32-15 ATS his last 47 games as an underdog. There appears to be value here. So:

TAKE: Kansas State +7 Oklahoma State


Good hunting today! 


October 11, 2018

FOOTBALL


There is a Late Consensus Pick on the Thursday night NFL game and it is a STRONG PLAY:


TAKE: Philadelphia -3 NY Giants


NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: I also have an opinion tonight.  Georgia Southern is really running the ball again like they a couple years ago before a brief, unsuccessful coaching change. Tonight they face a Texas State team that's 7-29 SU their last 36 games with their only win this year coming against a pathetic Texas Southern outfit. T State has yielded 41 to mediocre So. Alabama, 25 in a loss to UTSA whose only other wins came against awful teams from Rice and UTEP and 42 to U La La which hasn't scored over 28 against any other of its four Division 1 foes this season. I smell a blowout:


TAKE: Georgia Southern -17 1/2 Texas St.

Take Houston -145 Boston in the ALCS
