    BASKETBALL


    ****NOTE---Before listing today's selections I must tell you that there probably won't be "lots" of picks during this "championship week." In truth, I absolutely hate this week. Some coaches with good teams understandably do not go all out in these conference playoffs because their NCAA spots are already locked down. But then, some do believing it's important to "stay sharp" this time of year. Some used to go all out but now don't---and vice versa. Some protect injured players. In short, all these situations and several others make such games pretty unpredictable in major conferences. We'll be pretty conservative this week and focus on the NCAA next week where we can be certain everyone will make a concerted effort. Thanks.

    FOOTBALL



    LATE CONSENSUS PICKS: As you can imagine various handicappers come down on all sides of this game. There appear to be more favoring Philly plus the points than supporting the Patriots.

    This strong of the Consensus Picks concerns the totals. A solid number of handicappers favor the UNDER in this contest including some who make it clearly their strongest opinion of the game.


    I'll be staying with Philly, going with them on the money line at a solid return price (+160---+170).

    I also lean to the under.


    In the props that I like:


    ---The first quarter to go UNDER

    ---Less than 5 1/2 total TDs in the game

    ---Longest FG to be longer that 47 1/2 yards


    Be careful today!!! Just because it's the SUPER BOWL doesn't make it the SUPER BET of the year.

    FOOTBALL

     

     

    Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the NFL playoff games on Sunday, Jan. 21:

     

     

    VERY STRONG PLAYS: None

     

     

    STRONG PLAYS:  Philadelphia +3 Minnesota

                                  New England -8 Jacksonville

     

     

    REGULAR PLAYS: Philadelphia--Minnesota OVER 39

                                    New England---Jacksonville OVER 45 1/2

     

     

    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: As you know I also like Philadelphia today and if you play the Eagles to win the game straight up on the money line instead of taking the +3 spread you can get +140 in return. That's where part of my wager goes today---on Philly straight up.

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

     

     

    STRONG PLAYS: Pittsburgh -7 Jacksonville

                                  Minnesota -4 1/2 New Orleans

     

    REGULAR PLAYS

     

    Jacksonville---Pittsburgh UNDER 41

     

     

    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS---Minny hasn't allowed any one to reach 20 points in one of their home games this season. The Saints "D" has wavered a bit lately but I believe will hold up

     

    LIGHT PLAY: Minnesota---New Orleans UNDER 46 1/2

     FOOTBALL

     

     

    Here are your Late Consensus Picks for tonight's national title game in college football.

     

     

    Rather than give you ratings here let me just discuss the approach of many handicappers. As you can imagine there are opinions on each side of this. One of our sources makes Georgia a VERY STRONG PLAY. Be it right or wrong I'm also strong on Georgia. but there are some  reputable types on the other side.

     

    Most of the totals action seems to slightly favor the UNDER, which is my preference also.

     

    I also want to stress that if you really like Georgia consider playing them on the money line to win straight out. If they do accomplish this the return was be +150 for every 100 wagered. I'll go this direction myself tonight.

     

     

    BASKETBALL

     

     

    Sunday record: 5-1......Season so far: 153=150

    FOOTBALL

     

     

    Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the NFL playoffs games of Sunday, Jan. 7:

     

     

    STRONG PLAY: Jacksonville -8 1/2 Buffalo

     

     

    REGULAR PLAY: New Orleans -7 Carolina

                                 New Orleans---Carolina OVER

     

     

    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: Just as yesterday I was about to suggest this morning taking the Saints minus the points but one of our handicappers put that out as a play. In the other game I don't see much offense on either side quite frankly so I'll suggest a LIGHT play on:

     

    Jacksonville---Buffalo UNDER

     

     

    BASKETBALL

     

     

    SATURDAY RECORD: 5-9......SEASON SO FAR: 148-149

    FOOTBALL

    Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the games on Monday, Jan. 1

    VERY STRONG PLAY: Notre Dame + 3 1/2 LSU

    STRONG PLAY: UCF +12 Auburn

    REGULAR PLAYS:

    Georgia -3 Oklahoma

    So. Carolina +8 Michigan

     

    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: That about covers the entire scope of the schedule. Just a reminder that should your REALLY like an underdog like Clemson of Notre Dame or even OU for that matter, the odds on the money line can be pretty enticing. For example: taking ND to win straight out rturns $1.50 for each $1.00 wagered

    Sunday record: 1-6 (Ugh!)......Season so far: 133-132

    FOOTBALL



    Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the NFL games of Sunday, Dec. 31:



    STRONG PLAYS: Houston---Indianapolis UNDER 41

                                  Jacksonville +1 1/2 Tennessee



    RRGULAR PLAYS:



    Atlanta -3 1/2 Carolina

    Washington -3 NY Giants

    Pittsburgh -6 1/2 Cleveland

    Oakland +7 LA Chargers

    San Francisco -4 1/2 LA Rams

    New Orleans -6 Tampa Bay

    Chicago--Minnesota UNDER 38 1/2

    Oakland---LA Chargers UNDER 42 1/2



    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: The Patriots have long been an NFL Threshing machine and they need today's win to clinch home field advantage in the playoffs which would be a decided advantage should they encounter Pittsburgh again. But that doesn't mean they'll get that win by over two touchdowns. The Jets have been a thorn in NE's side over the years posting an impressive ATS  records against the Pats. Today I'm going to carefully venture out on to that limb and oppose NE at home with a LIGHT play on those Jets.



    BASKETBALL


    Saturday record: 4-8......Season so far: 132-166



    NBA



    DOUBLE PLAY: Oklahoma City minus the points versus Dallas



    SINGLE PLAYS

    Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the bowl games of Friday, Dec. 29



    STRONG PLAYS:  Wake Forest -3 Texas A&M

                                    Ohio State -7 1/2 USC



    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: My late thoughts are contained in this week's Picks of the Pole . I favor both of the above picks plus selections on Northwestern and New Mexico State.



    BASKETBALL



    Thursday record: 3-3.....Season so far: 124-115

    FOOTBALL



    Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the college bowls of Thursday, Dec. 28



    STRONG PLAY: Michigan State - 1 1/2 Washington State



    REGULAR PLAY: Virginia Tech +5 1/2 Oklahoma State



    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: The more I study the TCU--Stanford contest the more I lean to the Frogs here. I what should be a solid defensive study it appears that TCU's built  to defend the run which is the core of the Stanford attack. The now-more-healthy Frogs should show better balance in their offense and I think grinds out a victory here. So:


    TAKE: TCU -3 Stanford.

    Here are your late Consensus Picks for the bowls game of Wednesday, Dec. 27

    STRONG PLAY: Purdue +3 Arizona

    REGULAR PLAY: Boston College +2 1/2 Iowa

                                 So. Miss +14 1/2 Florida State

    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS:  I've already basically picked all of these games. You might consider playing Purdue, Boston College and Texas (all small underdogs) On the money line to win straight up rather than take the small underdog spreads.

    Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the games on Sunday, Dec. 24:



    COLLEGE



    STRONG PLAY: Fresno +2 1/2 Houston

    NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: The Picks I put out Friday conflict with a couple of these late picks. And I'm going to stay with the Rams versus Tennessee and Jacksonville versus San Fran. But in each case I'll keep my plays smaller out of respect for handicappers that I really respect.



    Merry Christmas!!!!
