NCAAB - Exposing the Top 25
Most Underrated Top 25 Team - Georgetown Hoyas (18-4, 11-7 ATS)
We can't forget about Georgetown, after a slow start to the season, the Hoyas are making some noise winning six in a row. Three of those victories came against top 25 teams (Louisville, Notre Dame & Marquette). Georgetown backers have been lining their pockets during a very profitable 9-2 ATS run by the Hoyas.
The schedule doesn't get any easier for Georgetown, traveling to Cincy to take on the Bearcats on Friday. They will close out February with a pair of tough games on the road against Syracuse and Connecticut. They are currently just a half game back of the Orange in the Big East, and they face Syracuse twice before season's end.
Most Overrated Top 25 Team - Creighton Blue Jays (20-5, 13-9 ATS)
The Blue Jays were a popular team with the betting public early in the year, as they were an impressive 10-2 ATS at the beginning of January. Creighton is now coming off back to back losses, and the Blue Jays have dropped four of their last seven. They have only covered the spread once in their past eight games, costing their backers a good chunk of coin.
The Blue Jays are locked in a three way tie for the lead in the MVC, with Wichita State and Indiana State. They have shot the ball well all year, and they rank first in the country hitting 51 percent from the field. They haven't been hitting their shots in recent games, losing to Illinois State and Indiana State, and falling well short of their season average in both of those contests.
Their next game isn't going to be an easy one, as they go out on the road to face Northern Iowa, a team coming off three straight wins. The Panthers have already upset Wichita State at home earlier this month.
Unranked Team That Should Be Ranked – Wichita State Shockers (20-5, 11-10-1 ATS)
Surely if Creighton can remain in the rankings, then the Shockers should be there as well. After all, Wichita State has an identical record, playing in the same conference against all the same opponents, but when these teams faced each other, it was the Shockers that shocked the Blue Jays, winning by a score of 67-64.
Both teams have tough games upcoming, and they will face each other in a rematch in Omaha on the 2nd of March. Wichita will play three of five at home prior to facing the Jays in the final game of the season, while Creighton plays four of five on the road. Needless to say, it wouldn't be much of a shocker to see the Shockers come out on top in the Missouri Valley Conference.

The Miami offense came to life last night in limited capacity but it was enough for the Marlins to defeat the Giants in the opener of this series. The Marlins were on a 1-6 stretch heading into last night as the offensive woes continued as Tuesday was the first time during this homestand and during the skid that they have scored more than three runs. San Francisco had its two-game winning streak snapped and was held to fewer than six runs for the first time in six games. The Giants have been solid on the road this season and while Chris Heston is 5-1 on the road, he has been fortunate to receive a ton of run support. The Giants have scored eight or more runs in four of his last five road outings and are averaging 7.1 rpg in his seven road games. That changes tonight. Dan Haren is likely going to be traded to a contender and his stock has risen considerably despite allowing four runs last time out. He has a 3.38 ERA and 1.01 WHIP on the season with 10 of his 15 starts being quality outings. The Marlins have dropped his last four starts because of low run production but they are 4-0 in Haren's last four starts after scoring five runs or more in their previous game.
