Here are you Late Consensus Picks for the college games of Saturday, Nov. 10:


STRONG PLAYS: Michigan State +3 1/2 Ohio State

                              Nebraska -17 1/2 Illinois


Virginia Tech +3 Pittsburgh

West Virginia -11 1/2 TCU

Boston College +20 Clemson

Ohio State--Michigan State UNDER 49 1/2

Northwestern +10 1/2 Iowa

Oregon +4 Utah

Wisconsin +9 Penn State

Cal +4 USC
Alabama -23 Mississippi State

NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: I have a pair pf games for you this morning. There are a slew of numbers that recommend Auburn against Georgia. But I added those trends to the feeling that these teams just don't seem to be two touchdowns apart. When the year began the projected line on this game was Georgia a 6-point favorite.

That has ballooned and provides potential value for bettors:

TAKE: Auburn +14 Georgia

Secondly, we present a Nevada team that's having a solid season versus a Colorado State team that's headed nowhere. Nevada's offense should rule the day here against an opponent that struggles to move the ball. I like the home team to eventually put this one away:

TAKE: Nevada -14 Colorado State


Friday record: 3-6

Season so far: 30-18


St. Louis -10 1/2 Troy

North Texas PICK Portland


LA Clippers +3 Milwaukee

Good hunting this Saturday!

November 9, 2018


Thursday record: 1-0

Season so far: 27-12


Yale -3 California

Northeastern +3 1/2 Harvard

W. Virginia -10 Buffalo

UCLA -15 1/2 Long Beach

Providence -5 Wichita St.


Washington -2 1/2 Orlando

Philadelphia -5 1/2 Charlotte

Utah -3 1/2 Boston

Denver -10 Brooklyn


There are no Late Consensus Picks or Norm's Late Thoughts tonight. I picked both games on the card as part of the Picks of the Pole.

Good hunting tonight!

November 5, 2018


There is one Late Consensus Picks on the NFL Monday night game. It's a REGULAR STRENGTH play:

TAKE: Tennessee +4 1/2 Dallas

NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: Our excellent run in this space continued Saturday with Stanford and Sunday with the Vikings. Today, is simply a "be careful" recommendation. I actually lean a bit toward Dallas tonight. I know the trends here are all wrong for the Cowboys. But 

this match-up of similar looking teams with 3-4 records look priced about right to me. In light of the above recommendation from a solid handicapper I'll be passing this one with just a "lean" to the UNDER>


Sunday record: 1-0

Season so far: 23-7

OK City -4 New Orleans

OK City---New Orleans OVER 238

Happy Monday!

November 4, 2018


Here are your Late Consensus Plays for the NFL games of Sunday, Nov. 4


STRONG PLAYS: Green Bay +6 New England

                              Pittsburgh +2 Baltimore


Washington---Atlanta UNDER 48

Buffalo--Chicago UNDER 37 1/2

Houston +1 1/2 Denver

Seattle PICK LA Chargers

New Orleans +2 LA Rams

NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: Stanford gave us a nice winner in this spot yesterday so lets step out today with one of the best "Against The Spread coaches on planet earth--Minnesota's Mike Zimmer. If we put teams in the NFL playoffs every year based on their ATS records Zimmer's teams would be there every year. Today he finds the public weighing in on the opponent, the Detroit Lions. Wagerers have drive this line from 5 1/2 down to 5 and, in some places, 4 1/2.

I just see Minny as a "sleeping giant" in the NFC and that line's a  small price to pay for what appears to be the better team playing at home. So:

TAKE: Minnesota -4 1/2 or 5 Detroit


Saturday record: 3-0-1

Season so far: 22-7

Milwaukee---Sacramento OVER 235 1/2

Good hunting today!!!
