There are no Late Consensus Picks on tonight's NFL game. The line here opened with CLEVE favored 2 1/2 and jumped to 6 1/2 with the announcement that Jets QB Darnold was out sick. Sick is what CLEVE looked in their opener versus TENN. We just had a terrific weekend. Lets pass this and hunt for better spots down the road.


Sunday record: 1-3...-$2.10

Season so far: 299-239.....+$44.20

Baltimore -140 Detroit

Happy Monday!

Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the NFL games of Sunday, Sept. 15. Hope we can come close to duplicating yesterday's 8-1 mark!





Green Bay -2 1/2 Minnesota 

LA Chargers -1 1/2 Detroit 

New Orleans +2 LA Rams 

Chicago -2 1/2 Denver

Dallas--Washington UNDER 46 1/2 

NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: Entering this season I thought San Francisco was the sleeper team in the NFC. Their win at Tampa last week now looks even more impressive after the Bucs went on the road and won at Carolina. Cincy did look improved in their near-miss

at Seattle. But, in a toss up game, I think the Niners are  the better

team. So:

TAKE: San Francisco PICK Cincinnati


Saturday record: 1-3....-$2.05

Season so far: 298-236....+$46.30

NY. Mets +125 LA Dodgers

Atlanta -110 Washington

Colorado -110 San Diego

Philadelphia EVEN Boston

Lets have another big day!

Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the college games of Saturday, Sept. 14


STRONG PLAYS: Air Force +3 1/2 Colorado

                              E. Michigan +7 Illinois


Pitt--Penn State UNDER 53

Temple +6 1/2 Maryland

Iowa state +1 1/2 Iowa


No. Illinois +14 Nebraska 

There's also general support for some games that are Picks of the Pole  like Navy and La. Tech.

NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: While  it's hard measuring the quality of Texas Tech given the low quality of their opposition, the Red Raiders do appear to have something very, very valuable in the college game---an excellent trigger man for their pass-happy offense. And new coach Wells arrives with an excellent career resume. Arizona coach Sumlin has struggled to raise the level of play at AU since his arrival despite seeming to have some good pieces of the puzzle.

Lets go with that shiny record of the new Tech head coach.

TAKE: Texas Tech -2 Arizona


Friday record: 0-3....-$3.60

Season so far: 297---233....+$48.35

Milwaukee--St. Louis UNDER 7 1/2

Cincinnati +120. Arizona

San Diego -105 Colorado

White Sox EVEN Seattle

Go get 'em today!

September 13, 2019


Thursday record: 1-2....-$1.00

Season so far: 227-230.....+$51.95

Washington -160 Atlanta

NY Mets +120 LA Dodgers

Miami +135 San Francisco

Cleveland +105 Minnesota


There are no Late Consensus Picks or Late Thoughts of mine on the limited card. I did like Kansas  bit but that game has been taken "off the board" in some places and games like that I simply ignore most weekends.

Good hunting today!

While there are no Late Consensus Picks on the one NFL game being played tonight, I'd lean to Carolina to beat and cover versus Tampa. This is NOT a strong feeling and "lean" is the most I'd recommend. Panthers lost at home last week and should be in a surly mood against division rival Tampa. In a battle between two often inconsistent QB's in Winston and Newton I feel much better backing Newton than Winston's who's so prone to simply throwing it to the other team. But no official pick---just a lean.


Season so far: 293-225....+$54.45

San Diego +125 Cubs

Colorado +155 St. Louis

Washington -115 Minnesota

Good hunting today!
