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.

1* Kansas City (7:05 ET): The Royals dropped their final two games in Cleveland, including a 5-1 loss Thursday afternoon. The Tribe scored all five of its runs in one inning (the 5th) and offensively KC had no answer for Corey Kluber. But tonight they get to face a struggling starter (and former Indian!) Ubaldo Jiminez, who has an 0-4 TSR thanks to a 6.75 ERA and 1.875 WHIP to this point. They should have far more success at the plate tonight as they open up a three-game set at Camden Yards.
Baltimore won 11-4 yesterday in Toronto, scoring double digit runs for a second straight game. Offense is the Orioles' strength, but I see them getting slowed down here by Royals starter Yordano Ventura, who had been outstanding in two starts before running into Minnesota last time out. For all the alleged offensive prowess, the O's are averaging just 2.7 runs per game at home this year. Look for them to drop the series opener. 1* Kansas City.
