Here's are your Late Consensus Picks for the NFL games of Sunday, Dec. 16.



VERY STRONG PLAYS: None



STRONG PLAYS: Here's where it get tricky. There's a STRONG play 

                 recommendation out there on New England minus the

                 points at Pittsburgh (a play I also favor). BUT---there are 

                 solid opinions out there also supporting the underdog

                 Steelers. I'll still be on the side of NE here but I'm not in

                 favor of labelling this a STRONG PLAY myself.


REGULAR PLAYS: Also a VERY mixed bag area. Differing opinions

                 all over the board on various games. So, it's a very small

                 set of picks this week in this category.


                 Philadelphia +12 1/2 LA Rams

                 Cincinnati--Oakland OVER 46


NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS---We hit a nice recommendation to  take Cleveland on the money line yesterday. Lets come back with another "pig" today. Buffalo's still playing hard and, while I hate recommending them as a small favorite, that's the way I've been leaning more and more as the weekend has opened up.


TAKE: Buffalo -3 Detroit



BASKETBALL

Season record so far: 107-95

San Francisco -12 1/2 Cal Fullerton

Nebraska -7 Oklahoma State
