NCAAB - Exposing the Top 25
Most Underrated Top 25 Team - Georgetown Hoyas (24-5 SU, 15-10 ATS)
Is there any team that can beat Georgetown right now? Sure the Hoyas slipped up on the road at Villanova, but then again, so has Louisville, Syracuse and Marquette. Georgetown bounced right back from it's only defeat in 12 games by blowing out the Orange at home on Saturday, in a game that looked like men against boys.
After covering the points in nine of their past 10 games, the Hoyas appear to be the team to beat as we head into NCAA Tournament.
Most Overrated Top 25 Team - Gonzaga Bulldogs (30-2 SU, 16-12-2 ATS)
Whoever said that "winning isn't everything", certainly wasn't in charge of the national college basketball rankings. The Gonzaga Bulldogs sit at the top of all of the polls after rattling off 13 consecutive wins. As impressive as this run is, it's important to consider that not one of those victories came against a top 25 team, and in fact, the last time the Zags faced a ranked team is the last time they lost.
Gonzaga lost to the Butler Bulldogs on the road in January, and they have a losing record against ranked teams, losing two of three this season. Even more telling, both those two losses came against two teams that have since fallen out of the rankings (Butler and Illinois).
The Zags face St. Mary's Monday in the WCC Tournament Final, and it would be no surprise to see a close game, and potentially an upset.
Unranked Team That Should Be Ranked - Notre Dame Fighting Irish (23-8 SU, 14-14 ATS)
The Irish aren't popular with the public, or the books, but I think they are a lot better than people give them credit for. They have proved time and time again this season that they can play with the best teams in the country.
Notre Dame has a record of 4-3 versus top 25 teams, including an overtime win against #4 Louisville last month.
The Irish might be getting a lot of points as an unranked underdog in the tournament when playing ranked opponents. I like Notre Dame as a dark horse to make some noise in the coming weeks.

The Giants fell to the Padres last night in a close 2-1 pitchers duel. I think San Fran is the better team here and finds a way to bounce back and get a win on the road. San Francisco sends veteran Tim Hudson (2-0, 2.35 ERA) to the hill looking to bounce back from a recent rough start. The righty has been pitching very well this season but just gave up four runs in 7 1/3 innings in a no decision against the Rockies in his last outing. Hudson has been downright dominant in 12 career starts versus the Padres though, boasting a 6-1 record with a stingy 2.35 life time ERA. The home side will send Eric Stults (0-2, 5.52) to counter. Stults has struggled to start the year and I think the southpaw will continue to slide, he has a very pedestrian 5.21 ERA versus the Giant in 15 careers starts. Even more telling here is San Francisco’s collective .301 batting average versus him. Hunter Pence has gone 6 for 17 with two homers and a double off him. Crawford also has a pair of homers off Stults, and Pablo Sandoval is 12 for 22 with three doubles and a triple lifetime against him. The Giants sat two of their best hitters in Michael Morse and Buster Posey in yesterday’s lost. I think they jump in rested and ready to help the team score enough runs here to back Tim Hudson. Consider laying the price.
