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* Free Play Packers.
The Rams surprised everyone with their outright SU win over the Cardinals last week, but if this team has shown anything this season, it's been it's unbelievable inconsistency from week to week. After beating division rival Seattle in its opener, St. Louis would then promptly lose to a mediocre Redskins team in Week 2 and now has to face Aaron Rodgers and the 4-0 SU/ATS Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. There's no question that this sets up as a classic letdown spot for the Rams after another tough divisional win and note that from a trend based standpoint, this play is about as strong as you could possibly ask for as St. Louis is just 1-5 SU its last six vs. the Pack and only 4-9 SU its last 13 on the road (also just 2-5 ATS its last seven overall), while Green Bay is 5-0 SU its last five at home and 7-2 SU its last nine vs. the Rams at Lambeau. We're going to lay the points as we expect the visitors to get caught "looking ahead" to their bye the following week, followed by back-to-back "cream puffs" at home vs. the Browns and 49'ers respectively; consider a second look at GREEN BAY in this one.
